A little of this, little of that...

Linking up with Andrea, Narci & Erika for...

It is has been a couple weeks since I checked in a Friday so I am backing up a bit :)
A couple weekends ago we had 0 plans!
That NEVER happens!
So we took advantage and just drove around town to a couple of shops looking for some more of our favorite ornaments.
We are slightly obsessed with them. lol!

Our first stop was at Possum Run Greenhouse.
They were just getting things out for Christmas.
No S'mores ornaments there :(

We did see some gorgeous Santa's though!
Santa's are my favorite!

Our next stop was the Blueberry Patch.
This shop has a little bit of everything, including a cafe.
We decided to sit down and have some lunch.

This latte was so good!
Definitely a favorite!

Later that evening we played X's favorite game while visiting some friends :)

It also got so cold that we had to make our first fire of the season.
Making fires is not my favorite, but that smell sure is!

Last week we headed north to celebrate Thanksgiving!
That turkey was so good!
Like fall off the bone delicious!

Watching these two play together that day was a favorite as well!
They were pretending to work at a doctor's office - she was taking calls from patients and he was writing notes about his appointments. lol!

I also rocked my newest Lularoe pieces that day.
This might be my new favorite outfit to wear while eating lots of food! lol!

Late Friday afternoon we headed to Amish County to Tis the Season to check out the ornaments.
Unfortunately, they didn't have any S'mores ornaments either :(

But X did get to visit with the Big Guy!
That was my favorite moment of the day watching him interact with Santa :)

The rest of the weekend we spent decorating the house.

I just realized while looking at the above picture that we never put the rest of the ornaments on the tree!
It is missing the red ball ornaments!
Add that to my long to-do list tonight!

I finished the weekend by watching two of my favorites - Gilmore Girls and Sunday Night Football :)
Ah, the life of a tomboy and boy mom!

And now I have to ask?
Have you watched Gilmore Girls - A year in the life yet?
What are your thoughts?
Love it? Hate it? Mixed feelings?

I finally figured out how to convert the photos from my camera so I could view them on my computer.
Does anyone else have the problem where they are NEF files and you have to convert?
How do you fix that?
Or what program do you use to convert?
Anyways, now that I can see them..Eek!
I can't wait to take more pictures!
These are from my first try at taking our family photos on our property.
My new favorites for sure :)

And that is it for this edition of Friday Favorites!
Looking forward to celebrating my little guy's 5th birthday this weekend with friends and family!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Wish List | Holiday Decor

I recently have become obsessed with the old time truck holiday decor!
Oh my goodness!
I want it all!

Look at this pillow from Kirkland's!
I wouldn't mind that on my couch or bed year round :)

This burlap truck is super cute too!

Check out this adorable truck and tree for a centerpiece.
This whole post is full of amazing car holiday decor.

And I think this tee wouldn't be horrible to have either ;)

Is there a certain type of holiday decor or design that you love?
Where do you shop for your holiday decor?

What's Up Wednesday | November

Linking up with Mel, Shay & Sheaffer for...

What we're eating this week...
Turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, and pumpkin pie!
I mean, there are other foods this week but I can't really think about those! lol!

What I'm reminiscing about...
At this time 5 years ago I was preparing to welcome X into the world.
While I knew our lives would be forever changed, I didn't get just how much! lol!

What I'm loving...
That I am off of work for the next 4 days!!!

What we've been up...
Unfortunately, we had to put our family cat to sleep after 13 years of being with us :(
It has been a tough week.
Earlier this month we headed to Lego Fest and had a blast!
 I hosted my annual scarf exchange with friends :)
And I attended my first college football game with Mic :)

What I'm dreading...
Making fires all winter :(
While I love the smell of the fire, the constant up keep of cleaning out the ashes, throwing more logs on the fire, etc. gets exhausting and OLD when it is super cold!

What I'm working on...
Christmas shopping and decorating the house.

What I'm excited about...
Planning a few trips for 2017!
We are talking about possibly heading to Disney!
I have never been, so I am beyond excited!
Any tips, suggestions, etc. are greatly appreciated!

What I'm watching/reading...
Dancing with the Stars, lots of football, and I super excited to watch Gilmore Girls this weekend!

What I'm listening to...
Everything Christmas!
I turn my Sirius radio on my phone while I am at work, and then in the car I tune into the same channels or pop in one of my favorite Christmas Cd's.
Yes, I still own and use Cd's!
I am a 90's girl ;)

What I'm wearing...
Lots and lots of layers!
It has been super cold this week. I am talking snow people!
Sweaters and scarves are my go-to's this week, 
and I picked up a few more pairs of Lularoe leggings too :)
How cute are these?

What I'm doing this weekend...
Hopefully getting some Christmas shopping done, finish decorating the house, and I have a baby shower on Sunday for a childhood friend back home.

What I'm looking forward to next month...
X's 5th Birthday Party!
This is the first time we let him invite a few friends and I can't wait to see them all interact outside of school and soccer :)

What else is new...
Nothing other than enjoying all the fun red cups from Starbucks! ;)

Bonus Question: What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
There is so much I love about Thanksgiving!
The food, the newspaper full of store ads, the Football, and of course time with family :)
My favorite tradition would have to be waking up to watch the Thanksgiving Day parade!
It is simply the best!

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!
