Friday Favorites: Simple Moments!

I'm so happy Friday is here again! Bring on the weekend! I'm linking up with AndreaErika, and Narci for Friday Favorites! This week my favorites have been small things that have put a smile on my face.

*Note: Yesterday marked one month (!!!) until our wedding! I'm sooo excited but also crazy busy trying to get everything done, so I am thinking about only posting Monday, Wednesday, Friday for a while, or maybe just skipping some random days here and there.

I posted this picture on Facebook this week, but I was so excited about this! I ordered these scents for my Bath & Body Works plug-in last week. You may notice that five out of the six include pumpkin. I may not like PSL's, but I like everything else pumpkin! The only one I had tried before was caramel pumpkin swirl (and I doubt anything can top it!). I chose to put in pumpkin apple first because it seemed the most transitional into fall. Apples seem very September-ish.

I took a walk to Target this week and came across this. This tree was huge with sooo many green leaves. And then when you walk under it and look straight up there's this random patch of orange and yellow leaves. The only ones on the whole tree! It made me happy that fall is creeping in. :)

When I was at Target in the checkout line I looked over and saw these calling my name! I had these last year and loved them. I think they're probably a love it or hate it flavor, so be warned. I didn't see the pumpkin spice ones that they had last year, but I need to buy those too! I took these to work since Michael can't eat them and now I'm wishing I had them here so I could eat one (or three) as I write this!

Yesterday I got my wifey tee in the mail! I know I talked about how I wanted one in this post. I ended up going with this one from Etsy. The $46 one was just waaay too crazy for me.

This is an old picture that you've seen on the blog before, but I wore this exact outfit to work on Tuesday. I rolled my ankle on Sunday night running with the dogs in the dark yard. I started the day wearing these shoes but it was too painful and I had to change when I came home for lunch. I didn't have many options for flat shoes so I went with my navy blue crochet TOMS. These are soft pants so they feel like pajama pants and...when paired with TOMS it really just looks like you're wearing pajama pants and slippers to work. I walked by the HR guy and noticed he did a double take and then had a confused/concerned look on his face...and then I realized he probably thought I was wearing pajamas in our non-casual office environment. It was definitely amusing.

On Tuesday night we met up with the wedding planner for a walk-through of our venue! She also went over a checklist with us so now we know what we need to figure out. She's also going to contact all of our vendors which makes me feel better too. I was kind of panicking trying to figure out what we needed to get done, so that meeting definitely helped!

Hope everyone had a great week! Anyone have any fun weekend plans?

  2. So jealous of your fall leaves starting to show! The leaves changing was always my favorite part about fall, now I miss it so much. And love those pants. I have a pair similar and they are so comfy but I swear people think I'm wearing pajamas to work haha!

  8. I would so wear that wifey shirt :) and I really love your wedding date 10/10/15. How did you pick that date? Love those plug ins!! Have you used them yet? Do you like them? Are they overwhelming strong or just nice?

    By the way don't stress on how much you post. I never post straight M-F I can't because I have too much to do and spend too much time reading up on my favorite blogs and responding to others. Focus on you and your life :) not posting so much. Good luck with your wedding planning!!
