Friday Favorites 10.2.15

It's Friday!!! I am linking up with MomfessionalsA Little Bit of Everything Blog, and Grace and Love Blog for my Friday Favorites

and A. Liz Adventures for Five on Friday.

Fridays off.  As I mentioned in Wednesday's post, I am taking the day off!  Work is about to get busy, and then I will be transitioning into a new position, so the timing was right to make it a long weekend.  That is for sure a favorite this week!

A new car!  I finally pulled the trigger and am getting a new car.  I decided to go with the Honda HRV.

The size was exactly what I was looking for, something higher up than a car, but still on the small side.  This definitely fits the bill and I just think it is so cute!  Unfortunately, the specific one I want isn't available until the end of the month/early November.  But come the last week of October/first week of November, I will have a new car!  I can't wait!

Fall decorating!  I shared yesterday some of the spots of fall around my apartment.  When my parents were here this past weekend, my mom helped me put the finishing touches on my apartment.  Now I can just light a fall scented candle and enjoy the coziness of my apartment.

Cardinals win the division!  It's hard to live in St. Louis without catching Cardinal fever.  This week they won the National League Central Division.  It was funny watching them celebrate afterwards on TV...champagne was flying everywhere and they had these crazy ski google looking things to protect their eyes.  A little extreme for me, but hey when you win the division for the third time in the row, I guess you can do what you want!

Finally being able to wear my fall clothes!  This week the temperatures have cooled off quite a bit.  I am excited to be able to finally wear this plaid shirt from my Nordstrom Anniversary sale purchases.  It's just been hanging in my closet, waiting for the cooler weather.  

Hope you all have a great weekend!
