Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! This week was work, eat, clean, repeat forever and ever and I am exhausted. I have been working on site words with Zoe the last few weeks, and I am hoping she is picking up on them. It is hard to tell. I am so not teacher material.

This past week she has decided that she wants to be the person to take Mac out. I was a little nervous at first, he only weights 9.75 pounds but he is a sneaky little guy and sometimes he pulls a lot harder than you would think. But apparently Mac has figured out when I am walking him vs her and they have done really well together! Of course, I am always right there if she needs me.

Alabama plays the first SEC game of the season this weekend against Florida. I need to come up with some fun football snacks! I love football season! Other than that, I don’t have a whole lot going on. Work in the mornings before Zoe gets up, probably clean the house some. I know I won’t be spending anytime cleaning Zoe’s playroom this weekend. Zoe has kept up with it every day this week. Hooray!!!

Favorite Finds: I have been really enjoying this Too Faced lip injections gloss. The packaging is so pretty and the color is fun. It does have some plumping to it, it reminds me of the favorite Buxom glosses.

Zoe and I painted our nails this week with the Orly Lisa Frank collection topper. It is everything I wanted it to be. So fun!!! I didn’t get any yellow stars from it on my nails, but Zoe did and she was so excited. Apparently this exact top coat is sold out everywhere, but they do still have the star glaze one and the 3-pack color options.

Time and Tru Women's V-Neck Sweater

I saw this sweater on clearance when I was ordering some staples from Walmart. It is $5 and is so soft!!The perfect transition piece into fall, as it isn’t too heavy. I love the fit, a little oversized and it covers the bootie if you want to pair it with leggings. I got my normal size.

PORTLAND by Portland Boot Company Women's Shearling Lace Up Boot

I also found these boots on clearance for $15.99!!! I got the white pair, which is definitely more of a winter white/creamy color. I love them. They also have black. These will be perfect for Gatlinburg and any other winter outings. They fit true to size, and are wide enough at the tops to tuck in your jeans.

Favorite Aldi Finds: Fall time is the best time at Aldi. They have the best fall treats and coffees that come out. I grabbed the last two bags of pretzels, we are all obsessed with them. Zoe particularly loves this pumpkin pie hummus, which is shocking really. I know I would have never touched it when I was a kid. She has eaten half the container herself this week. Their pumpkin ravioli is my FAVORITE!!! I do a brown butter and sage sauce with it and OMG!

Favorite Recipe: I made this black bean soup this week. I liked that you didn’t have to get the blender out, and it was so full of flavor.

Favorite Funnies:

Linking up for Friday Favorites. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    That last funny, though. HAHAHA. I need to make some fun snacks, too, even though it’s not a big game for us. Let me know if you come up with any ideas!

    As always, the best memes! Definitely making some fun snacks for football tomorrow – i think we’re doing baked queso, buffalo chicken dip, a veggie tray (natch) AND beef/blue cheese sliders

    I have been living off soup this week – black bean is one of my favorites!!! Caramel apple pretzels? Ummm, yes please. We’re going to my MIL’s this weekend for the AU/Penn State game. She always makes the best dips. Hope you guys have a great weekend!

    I am still working on sight words with my girls. It is tough. But I bought some flash cards from Amazon that has 5 levels of them. It helps. That is pretty packaging on the lip plumper. I love that sweater. So perfect for Fall. Have a great weekend.

    Oh, Lisa Frank. I loved her stuff growing up and I think the new line from Orly is so cute! Love the top coat you got.

    That sweater looks super cozy!

    Love how your nails came out, and YES to football snacks! I totally dropped the ball on that this week, and need to prepare for this weekend <3

    So sweet Zoe walking Mac! I love the Lisa Frabk nail polish- it makes me feel so nostalgic! Those pretzels sound sooo good- I think covered pretzels are one of my favorite snacks.
