Guys, my number one favorite should come as no surprise - THE CUBS WON THE WORLD SERIES! Holy cow. What a ride this series has been. I am a bit superstitious, and towards the beginning of the playoffs, if I would watch the game for an extended period of time the Cubs would go downhill. Obviously, there is no correlation, but still in my mind, I wasn't going to do it. I have basically been flipping to the games to see the score, maybe watching an inning or two, before turning it to something else. I was getting texts on the score, so between those things that is how I "watched" the game. I decided to actually watch Game 7 in its entirety, because it was GAME 7, and holy cow, what a game it was. I have to admit, I actually fell asleep during the rain delay, but woke up right as they won, which was so surreal. It's just seriously so exciting. I haven't gotten over the high of it! As I have mentioned before, I come from a line of Cubs fans. I wish my grandma and grandpa were here to witness this, but I know they are looking down and celebrating!
Nothing can really top that, but I do have a few other favorites from the week.
Halloween was another favorite this week. I didn't really do anything to celebrate on the day, but I got some CUTE pictures of my nephew and friends' kids. Jack was a Jack O' Lantern, he was the "Jack", had a shirt with O' and carried a lantern. How stinking cute? And so clever! My parents spoil us and sent little Halloween packages this week. I got a super cute infinity scarf, a Which Wich gift card (get it - like witch? I totally didn't and my mom had to mention it to me!) and some yummy trail mix, which of course, had Halloween colored M&M's.
Skipping ahead to Christmas, for the past few years I have been lusting after Christmas plates from Pottery Barn. I just think they are so pretty, and can help make the holiday even more special. My mom and dad surprised me with a set of dinner plates this week, and I could not be more excited. I go back and forth between wanting to use them or just use them to set my table for the season. Either way, I am super pumped.
I made my mom's beef stew on Sunday and it tastes like home. Make sure to check out the recipe if you are in need of a good, down-home, comfort meal!
I have been growing my hair out for the past few years, but at my hair appointment yesterday I decided to go for a change. My inspiration was Kim from Kensington Way. Her style is so sleek and classic - I just love it! I guess this shouldn't technically qualify as a favorite because I am still getting used to the change, but my hair looks healthier and the decrease in dry time is definitely a good thing.
This weekend should be pretty low-key, which sounds pretty darn good right now. Hope you have a great one!
Linking up with Andrea, April, Katie and Amanda.
