Thoughts For Friday

TGIF!  I am excited for the weekend and the fact that it is getting a little cooler here- like under 80, yes please!  The kids are dying to see the new Trolls movie so I am hoping to do that one day this weekend. 

We had a fun Halloween only bummer was it was on a school night.  Both kids had last minute costume changes.  Next year no joke I am not buying their costumes til the day before.  Frances ended up going as a princess and Sterling was a zombie rocker.  He was bent on creating his own unique costume- gotta love his creativity:)

We were cleaning out the garage and the kids found Matt’s old Halloween costume from college and insisted he wear it.  He obliged and we called him a wiener all night:)

Scored this tank at Target– perfect for halloween.  It is only $12, I wear it to the gym too.

Made Tomato/Zucchini Pie for dinner this week.  I crave these every few weeks.  Frances Moon loves it as much as I do and gobbles it up. 

 The den is finally coming together.  Loving my recovered chairs and pom-pom throw.

We had a playdate after school the other day.  Frances Moon and her friend Anna Louis are the sweetest together.

Two recent OOTD’s.

I originally bought this tee for the gym but I have loved it equally for causal wear with jeans.

Tee Shirt | Scarf  (only $19) | Jeans | Pumps

The new Beauty Counter Holiday gift sets were just released and they are so good.  I ordered a few and I will report back after I try them.  I am super pumped about this lipgloss set.  BC lipgloss is my favorite because it is not sticky.  Frances loves it too:)  All of these colors are great.

I am in a major book rut.  I want something good to read but not too heavy.   Any recommendations?   I just finished Jane Green’s Falling and really liked it.  Her books are always easy reads.  

A few pink pretties:

I love these pink calf hair pumps and they are on sale 40% off right now with code BRFAMILY.  They come in several other colors too.  They run TTS.

Have a great Friday!

    Hi Natalie! Thanks, as always, for the fab post. If you're looking for some fun, really great reads, try THE ROYAL WE by Jessica Cocks & Heather Morgan or THE HATING GAME by Sally Thorne. Both laugh out loud, sexy, suck-you-right-in books. Hope you enjoy!

    I recently read Opening Belle by Maureen Sherry and it was a great, easy read!

    Natalie, is the rug in your den still available? I can't seem to find it.

    I second the rec for The Royal We – sort of Wills and Kate fan fiction, but much better than my description makes it sound 🙂 Have you read The Selection series by Kiera Cass? It's YA, dystopian future Bachelor. It was a book club choice that I thought I would hate, but ended up loving and promptly read the next two in the series.
