Friday Favorites

Linking up with Erika, Narci & Andrea today for

This has been another exhausting week!
Training a new employee takes a lot out of you, and then you still have the rest of the "life" things you have to do :/

Oh well, it is what it is right?

So we started our week/weekend off on a bad note last Friday :(
I walked out of X's school after picking him up to find my tire like this...
 #definitelynotafavoritemoment :(
Thankfully my FIL and Mic were able to fix it enough so I could drive it to the repair shop.
When we got there we noticed something very familiar parked in the back.
 It was Mic's OLD car!
Seeing that thing turned our evening around :)
It was definitely a favorite for Mic!

It was getting late so we swung through McDonald's to pick up a quick dinner and decided to head inside instead.
It actually was fun since we were practically the only ones there on a Friday night.
X had a blast playing the games :)
And I had my favorite fries for dinner! lol!

A bunch of people I follow on Instagram were posting pics with the hash tag
#threefictionalcharactersthatdescribeme
and I couldn't resist!
Tami Taylor is by far one of my favorite characters!

Saturday morning my favorite soccer star had another game!

X and I ran some errands later that afternoon and I couldn't resist my favorite treat!
#givemeallthetwizzlers

Sunday I tried cheering on my favorite team as best as I could, but unfortunately they lost in over time :(

We picked up X's Halloween costume while we were at Target.
He picked his favorite thing...A Ninja!
Of course he is also obsessed with bad guys these days, so he thinks he is bad ninja.
UGH!

On Monday, I talked about some of my favorite forms of Entertainment and what songs I am currently loving :)

I linked up with some of my favorite ladies for What's Up Wednesday | Septemberr this week!

I reviewed the items I recently ordered from Nordstrom and One Loved Babe on Thursday.
These moto jeggings are my new favorite piece of clothing!
See how I did here with the rest of the items :)

It is finally starting to feel like my favorite season around here!
Bring on all the scarves, sweaters, and boots!

I attended my friend's LulaRoe launch party this week and loved getting to see the items in person.
She had such a cute set up!
I will be blogging more about it next week and the items I picked up.

I was getting things out for Oktoberfest this weekend and X decided to try on my hat.
Oh, my favorite little German pretending to be a mobster! lol!

And I couldn't leave without a few of mine and X's favorite Snapchat filters from this week!


Happy Friday Friends!
I hope you all have a wonderful Fall weekend!

Review | My Styled Fix

Hello there!
Today I am reviewing the items I picked out for my "fix" I styled myself.
I showed you all the pieces I had picked out a couple weeks ago, and finally had the chance to try them on this week.

First up is the Lush Karly Shift Dress in burnt henna with the TOMS wedge booties in olive.
I had high hopes for this dress, but unfortunately it was just so-so.
 It just felt way too big on me, so I am sending it back.
The booties (currently out of stock) were just as comfortable as the ones I already own, but once I tried pairing them up with other things in my closet they just didn't seem to be worth it :(
So, they are going back as well.

I didn't mind the length of the top, but the sides came up a bit too high on me.
Strange really.
I tried it on with some other leggings and it just showed a bit too much for me in the saddle bag area. lol!
In the end, it is going back.

Those jeggings though?
Love them!
They fit perfectly! And the color is amazing for Fall!
Now I just need to find the right top to go with them!

It was buttery soft and fit true to size, but I decided to send it back as well.
Unfortunately, I am cheap!
I want something that is good quality, but I have to be able to get my money out of it so to speak.
Ohio gets too cold to be able to wear this enough for the price tag.
So I am still on the hunt for a cognac jacket - just at a cheaper price :)
Any suggestions?

So at the end of the day I guess I didn't do too well styling myself.
Looks like I need to place a Stitch Fix order soon! lol!

What's Up Wednesday | September

Linking up with Mel, Shay & Sheaffer!


What we're eating this week...
Now that the weather is finally feeling like Fall, I am pulling out the crock pot!
This Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo was super yummy!
And I have plans to make some crock pot pork chops too!
Spaghetti & pizza are on the menu as well ;)


What I'm reminiscing about...
Every year at this time I start thinking about to our wedding day :)
We are celebrating 10 years of marriage on October 7th!
Marriage is tough, but I wouldn't want to do it with anyone else!
Read all about our wedding below :)
What I'm loving...
The weather these last few days has been amazing!
Our windows are open, I am able to wear jeans and sweatshirts,
and it is almost boot season!
YEH!
And we have been getting outside as much as we can!



What we've been up to...
Soccer, soccer, and more soccer!


Oh and lots of work too!
I have been training our new employee for the last week and a half while still trying to get my work done.
Ugh! It is exhausting!


What I'm dreading...
End of year at work :(
I only have a little over two months to get all the things that need to be done compliance wise and I am freaking out!!!


What I'm working on...
Getting X to go to bed, painting my nails, and writing this post!
Multi-tasking at is finest! lol!


What I'm excited about...
All the Fall drinks at Starbucks!
Yes, I am simple like that! lol!
#givemeallthepumpkinspicelattesandsaltedcaramelmochas


What I'm watching/reading...
This Is Us and Dancing with the Stars are the only two shows I have been able to make time for, but The Blacklist is waiting patiently on my DVR for me :)
You can check out the other shows I am watching/recording here!


What I'm listening to
The Garth Channel on Sirius radio is my favorite!!!
Plus, I am obsessed with these songs from FGL lately!



What I'm wearing
It has been rather warm most of the month, so lots of shorts and tees in the off hours, and dresses and booties for work.


What I'm doing this weekend
We are going to Oktoberfest in our friend's hometown!
We had a blast last year!
Mic has been swamped with trying to finish his CE credits for work this week, so this weekend we will be having some fun and celebrating that he is done!


What I'm looking forward to next month
My annual scarf exchange with friends here in town,
Halloween, trick-or-treat,
 X's Fall Festival at school,
and a fun field trip with X's preschool class :)


What else is new
A good friend of mine is starting a new adventure selling LulaRoe!
Looking forward to her launch party this evening :)
I will be posting a review and a link to her online shop soon!


Bonus Question: What is your favorite fall recipe?
I have shared it on here a few times this month, but it is too good not to share again!
Dinner in a Pumpkin is the best Fall recipe!
Everyone loves it!

Let's Talk | Entertainment

Linking up with Andrea & Erika for
The topic:  ENTERTAINMENT!!!!

Eek!
Any of you that have been reading this little blog for a little while now know that I am a TV junkie!
I could go on and on about all the TV shows that I have loved over the years, but today I am sticking with the ones I am currently watching.
#keepinitsimple

So I finally watched the first episode of This Is Us and oh my goodness is it good!
I am super excited to see where they take things.
Who else is watching?

The Blacklist has been my favorite show for the last few years.
I haven't been able to watch the first episode yet, so don't say anything about it yet.
Sorry!

I am not a huge Dancing with the Stars fan, but I do watch every now and then when someone is on there I don't want to miss.
This year there are a few, but the kid in me is rooting for Vanilla Ice :)

And then there are my guilty pleasures :)
Love, love, love Chrisley Knows Best!
This family is seriously funny!

And this one isn't for any of you who don't like profanity and such, but if you can handle it..oh my word this show is hilarious!!!!!
Mic and I stumbled upon it and we are hooked!

What other shows am I missing?

When I am not watching TV, you can usually find me listening to music.
Heck, X and I have nightly dance parties before his bath where we watch all our favorite videos.
