Friday Favs 8

TGIF!  I'm so glad it's Friday!  I'm looking forward to a weekend filled with a little shopping, a little sleeping in, and a lot of blog projects!  Sounds perfect.  Here are some of my favorites from this week!

Fav #1
Leinenkugel's Orange Shandy.  I'm a big fan of their Summer Shandy, so I was thrilled when a fall sampler pack brought home by Mr. M. included this new brew.  I'm not sure what about orange beer says 'fall', but it sure was good.  Yum!  I think I may need to have one to celebrate the arrival of the weekend later on tonight.

Fav #2
Emily Giffin's announcement that her new book, The One and Only, will be released in May!  I'm a huge fan of Emily, not only because she is a super-gifted writer, but also because she is so kind, down-to-earth, and generous to her Facebook followers.  She's also hilarious!  Can't wait to read it!

I love Emily's books so much that I prefer to have physical copies of them.  But I caved and bought Where We Belong on my Kindle, because I couldn't wait to read it.  

Fav #3
These cool chairs that I found by the side of the road for FREE while I was out for a walk last night.  You better believe I hightailed it home, and went back with the car to pick those babies up! The rush seats have some minor damage, so I'll have to look into the repair or re-caning process, but aren't they cool?!  I envision the wood painted a bright color and distressed.  I'm not yet sure what I'll do with them, but they should be a fun little project. Look for a detail post coming soon.

Fav #4
Marshmallow Fireside 3 Wick Candles from Bath & Body Works.  Truth is I love almost all of their candle scents, but Marshmallow Fireside is a fabulous new discovery for me.  It smells a little bit like vanilla, but has a spiciness to it, making it the perfect fall scent.

Fav #5
The completely random discovery of this set of four elephant banks on an unnamed flash sale site for $58. Why does this qualify as one of my favorite things?  Because I bought three of these banks at TJ Maxx at least 2 years ago and paid $4.99 each. They're hiding in my accessory closet, waiting for the day I can bust them out.  TJ Maxx for the win!

Enjoy your weekend!!!

  1. I want to see your accessory closet!!

    1. It's not as exciting as it sounds, just a place where I store placemats, vases, candle holders, etc. that I'm not currently using. And maybe three random elephant banks ;)
