I’m baaaaaaaack! Did you miss me? It’s been a whirlwind around these parts since we closed on the house and moved. The move wouldn’t have gone nearly as smoothly if our parents hadn’t been here to help. A big thank you to Josh’s parents and my parents for all their hard work! Having extra help with Quinn was a HUGE benefit; plus, she just loved all the attention and snuggles from her grandparents. 🙂 I’m pretty sure she’s been looking from them since they left…
I hope you all have been well and are welcoming October with open arms (!!!October!!!). Have a fantastic weekend, I’ll be back in a few days with a new recipe to share! In the meantime, please enjoy the return of my favorite things from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites!***click on the red text to be led to the sources of my favorites
Favorite Breakfast: Apple Fritter Bites. Fried deliciousness. (I’m almost certain that is the dictionary definition of Fritter.)
Favorite Hair: Lucy Hale’s VMA Ponytail. Would you look at the volume on that ponytail. Just look at it!
Favorite Biscuits: Pumpkin Sage Biscuits. Pumpkin + Sage, an all too often forgotten super duo.
Favorite Fashion: DIY Twisted Rings. Simple and perfectly elegant.
Favorite Lunch: Autumn Chicken Salad with Honeycrisp Apples and Candied Walnuts on Buttery Brioche Toast. If I found Honeycrisp Apples and Candied Walnuts in a pile of dirt, I would still eat them. Thankfully, they are piled high atop buttery brioche toast in this instance. (Moral of the story: I really like Honeycrisps and candied walnuts.)
Favorite Upcycle Project: DIY Cereal Box Gift Tags. Well, it looks like I’ll be collecting old cereal boxes now. 🙂
Favorite Snack: Fall Chex Mix. Pecans and dried cranberries and raisins, oh my!
Favorite Beauty Guide: Makeup Brush Cheat Sheet. So that’s what all those brushes are for. You’d think I would have known these things after spending half of my life wearing makeup…
Favorite Fries: Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Maple Mustard Dipping Sauce. Sweet Potatoes have fast become one of my favorite fall foods. I can’t wait to make these!
Favorite Table: SVALBO Hack (IKEA Copycat). How cute is this table? It would add a great punch of color to any room.
Favorite Cake: Brown Butter Applesauce Cake. I can’t even. No words. Must eat.
Favorite Banner: No Sew Fabric Banner. This is sew cute.
Favorite Bars: Caramel Apple Shortbread Crumble Bars. Caramel! Apples! Shortbread! All of these things!
Favorite Wall Hanging: Home Sweet Home. Awww, I should probably make this now.
I can’t help it, one more picture before we go. Our favorite part of the new house is the backyard! Here’s a pic from our first night in the house a couple weeks ago, so cute 🙂
