Friday Favorites

It’s Friday! I mean, late Friday, so almost Saturday, but still.

So. September’s almost gone. Can we all agree that it flew by? This week’s highlights include Buster’s induction into the 100th percentile club, our curtains all getting put up (!!!), Wacey’s vocabulary continuing to astonish us, and my very late-to-the-game obsession with Vikings. I am in the process of growing out my hair and I have such braid envy.

This Friday Favorites’ theme is Octobery Things. I’m a little bit at a loss about what to do with myself now that we don’t wean calves all of October, but this is the first year that Wace can get into Halloween so I’m sure we’ll make it work.

Favorite I Think I Can Actually Attain This: Bathroom Storage. You know how it is–you’re moving or remodeling, you jump on the interwebs and have all.the.ideas and then realize, one month in, that you’re sick of unpacking, building, and spending money, and promptly get real about your expectations. I like this. It’s simple, it’s pretty, and a variation would work nicely in both of the bathrooms. I already have two of these metal baskets, which I really like and are so affordable I’ll be ordering a couple more.

Favorite Yes-I’ll-Jump-On-This-Bandwagon-Thank-You-Very-Much: BeautyCounter cleanser. Hi, the new house has harder water and I need to change up my skincare routine. This has everything I’m looking for–gentle, not drying, affordable–with excellent reviews and clean ingredients to boot.
BC CleanserFavorite Sweets: Brookies. My mom got us some killer monster-esque bars from Costco right before we moved and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about them. Since the closest Costco is 160 miles away (womp womp), we’ll have to make these at home which I totally don’t mind because hi, it’s fall, so it’s time to bake. I think this recipe topped with M&Ms might do the trick. I shall report back.

Favorite Get-In-My-Yeti: Sparkling Hard Apple Cider SangriaSparkling Hard Apple Cider Sangria. I am not a big drinker at all. But can you tell me anything more festive than strolling through the crisp fall air sipping on something light and cidery? Yep it doesn’t exist.

Favorite Mama+Mini Festive Treat: Rice Krispie Treat Pumpkins. I am SO excited to make these with Wacey. They’re so cute and a perfect treat to make with little hands. Also: Rice Krispie Treats are deeeeeelish.

Favorite OMG THE ANTICIPATION: Mini Pumpkins. I can’t wait can’t wait to take the boys to pick out pumpkins next week. I make myself wait until October to get pumpkins and it’s herrreeeeeee. Next year, I think I’m going to grow them at home and have a mini pumpkin patch because I love little pumpkins that much.

Favorite I Ought To Wait Till Christmas But I Don’t Know If I Can: Mini Mocs. Wacey’s feet are always cold at home, but he hates wearing shoes and socks inside. He’s always wanting to wear “Dad shoooooooz”  so I think he’d love having a little pair of his own.

K that about wraps it up kids. This weekend, I’m doing real big exciting things like organizing the storage container and finally mucking out the mud room since it’s supposed to stop raining for a day or two. Although, dull as it is, if that actually gets done, I’ll be one happy gal because that’s one giant leap closer to us being 100% moved in.

Oh and I’ll be watching waaaaay too much Vikings because I can’t stop.
