I'm particularly thrilled to see this weekend.  Not much planned other than football, costume making, & I'm hosting my book club.  Plus, a quick visit from the in-laws.  I'm also thinking we'll need to fit in a little movie night to all snuggle up & watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.  So perhaps we'll have a busy little weekend after all, ha!  Here's the usual bit of randomness that you all can expect from a Friday post...
So book club... the book is Macgruder's Curiosity Cabinet.  I haven't quite finished it yet (gasp), but I'm not loving it.  If you do need an awesome book though, read A Man Called Ove.  Since I'm hosting, I've been menu planning all week.  I'm going with a Fall/October vibe.  Pumpkin soup & chicken, brie, apple sandwiches.  Along with Dark & Stormies and caramel apples.  I seriously can't wait for the kid-free/girl time!

I've been looking for booties for a good two years now.  It took awhile to find a pair I liked, and finally thanks to Vanessa, I found the perfect pair.  These are perfectly neutral, go with everything, and probably won't leave my feet until the first snowfall.

Another good find this week was thanks to Katie.  She posted about these coasters that I couldn't get into my cart fast enough.  They are so my style!

A little PSA: Hanna Anderson's Christmas jammies are currently 20% off.  So buy them now!  It never gets cheaper than this.  I didn't love the boy options this year and was so torn on what to get, but I ultimately decided on the blue gnomes.  But the girl options are amazing, and I'm particularly crushing on these!

After I wrote this post, I think many people were expecting/waiting for an announcement.  So just to clear the air, I am not currently pregnant.  But we are hoping to grow our family!  No need for a bump watch yet, but any positive thoughts our way would be appreciated!
TGIF friends; enjoy the weekend!


  1. I loveeee those booties! Such a great price, too. And thanks for the heads up on the Hanna Anderson pj's - I'm thinking Haddie girl needs her first pair!

  2. I saw those booties on Vanessa's post. They are awesome! I'm always looking at Hanna pj's, but can never pull the plug because of the price. I did find some awesome ones on Zulily. :) Yippee! I can't wait to see you guys expand your sweet fam. you make beautiful babies.

  3. I'm excited for brother and sister Christmas jammies this year! I think it will be the first thing I buy after his arrival. For some reason I can't get them beforehand.

  4. So for some reason I've been against/scared of booties. I don't like anything with a heel since I'm almost already as tall as Seth, and I just don't really think I'm cool or trendy enough for booties, but these are so cute! I might have to splurge if both you and Vanessa are raving about them...

  5. Sounds like you have a wonderful weekend planned ♥ I have been looking for the perfect pair of booties. I definitely would love a neutral pair that would go with most any outfit. Those coasters are way too cute!

  6. Those booties look very similar to the ones I have and yes, you will wear them a lot!!! Have fun at your book club!

  7. YES! So glad you love the booties! They're my go-tos right now for sure :) And I just mentally added those coasters to my Target list. LOVE!

    Thinking about you guys--and I can't wait for another blonde babe! :)

  8. Adding a Man Called Ove to the bookshelf now. I've been searching for a good read for the last week or so.
    Those booties!! I just received a pair from SF this weekend, and if I'm not loving them I may have to snag those beauties.
    Sending all the positive vibes your way, friend!

  9. oh bummer, sorry you aren't loving Magruder's Curiosity Cabinet, i remember quite liking it. those booties are so cute!
    all positive thoughts your way :)

  10. Those ARE MY new favorite booties..!! Great taste you have. ;)
    Oh man, I wish I could bring myself to buy HA jammies for the kids, they're SO CUTE!!
