It’s Friday the 13th!
I love Fridays and I love the number 13…so it’s my kind of day 🙂 .
Here’s the deal…Andrew and the construction crew keep telling me my closet, bathroom and bedroom are going to be ready before Thanksgiving.
I feel like that’s too good to be true.
Sometimes, I’ll see an old pic of us from this time last year, and I want to grab that girl by the shoulders and say IF YOU ONLY KNEW!!!! Anyone else?! Sometimes, I want to grab this girl…
…and scream at her too. I took this picture TWO HOURS before the flood. If she only knew!!!! Sigh. If she only knew.
Anyway, I’m hopeful that we’ll be back in our room (and out of Smith and Kensington’s!) sooner rather than later. The moving company notified us that several pieces from our home were damaged in the flood (after the water dried, they could tell which pieces didn’t make it), so I ordered replacement items but you know how that goes…they’ll be here in like February. Even if my room is a bit bare…I’ll be so thrilled to get back in there!
…makes me all sorts of happy. My local Starbucks has gone from fall to holiday and my heart gets happy every single time they hand me a Christmas cup. My go-to drink right now is a Venti Pike with one pump of caramel brulee, a splash of cream and one Splenda. What is your go-to holiday Starbucks drink???? I loved your fall suggestions, so please give me more for this time of year!!
Did you see these yesterday…
…I shared my holiday at home outfits for the year! From pjs to loungewear, the best tartan scarf and of course, sweaters, I have it all in one post HERE! I love how soft these three sweaters are and that they would also work for the winter months too!

This week, we had two appointments that gave us time for TWO DAY DATES!
I got to have lunch with Andrew on the square before we had an appointment and then the next day…
…Mades and I enjoyed lunch before her 6 year well visit.
I love squeezing extra one on one time in when I can! They were highlights of my week 🙂 .
And finally, friends, we’re less than two weeks away from Thanksgiving!! If you don’t have your menu planned yet, please let me help!
Well that wraps up my week! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I’ll see you back here on Monday! xo
