Hey there!  Happy Friday!  I don't know about you, but this week has seemed extra long.  I am super excited we have (finally) hit the weekend, and that it is a long one at that!

A few favorites from the week...

1.  Pottery Barn Round Basket.  I had been on the lookout for a basket for a plant in my house, and came across this one from Pottery Barn.  It's a bit pricey, so I tried to find some less expensive options.  Target had an awesome basket for a fraction of the price that came in two different sizes, but unfortunately one was too small and the other was too tall.  So, I waited for a sale and free shipping at PB before ordering.  It came in last week, and I am so glad I ended up going for this option.  It's great quality, and the style and color is very classic.  I know I will use this for years and years to come!  

2.  Workout Tank from Walmart.  Last time I was back home, I noticed this cute workout tank my mom was wearing.  I asked her where it was from, and was super surprised when she told me Walmart - for only about $7!  Next time she was at the store, she picked me up a few, and I have been wearing them all week.  I like how they have a higher neck, and are looser.  Online they are sold in packs of 2, but it seems like in store you are able to buy they separately.  Either way, if you are in the market for some inexpensive, yet really nice workout tanks, these are winners!

3.  The West Wing.  I recently started watching The West Wing, and really, really have been enjoying it.  I like (fictional) political shows, and this one fits the bill to a T.  It amazes me (and also saddens me) at how many of the issues being discussed in the episodes are still topical in today's world.  Plus the show is full of great actors!  The series has quite a few seasons (7), and each season is pretty darn long (20+ episodes), so it's a great if you want a new show to watch with some longevity.

4.  Starbucks Pumpkin Spice K-Cups.  Oh my goodness, brewing one of these is one of my new favorite things, haha!  Since being at home, I have really developed a habit of having a cup of coffee a day.  And this coffee has been such a treat in the past week.  It smells so good, tastes so good, and pairs perfectly with the Chobani coffee creamer in vanilla.  I am going to have to stock up on these to ensure I get my 'fix' even after they are out of season!

5.  Fall Favorites Link Up.  I wanted to mention again the Fall Favorites link up that Sarah and I are doing, starting next Wednesday.  Each Wednesday we will be linking up to share about a fall favorite.  Next week is all about our favorite fall scents.  I am such a candle lover and fall candles may be my favorite of all (with Christmas candles a close second).  We'd love for you to join in and share some of your favorites - I would love some new suggestions to try!

  1. Wal-Mart has had some super cute clothes lately! I just saw some super soft crew neck sweaters that will be perfect to wear when working from home or on the weekends.

  2. Ohhhh, Walmart always has great workout tanks! Most of my workout tanks are actually from there. I'm wearing one right now as I type! And I looked for those pumpkin spice k cups at Walmart this morning and they didn't have them. Boooo. I know Target always does, so I'll have to make a Target run soon!

  3. I had my first PSL of the season Friday night! So nice that they make them in K-cups! Can't wait for Wednesday!!
