Happy Fri-YAY!

Happy FRI-YAY!!!!

Gosh, I'm glad that the weekend is here.  It's hard getting back into the groove at work after a relaxing vacation....I mean, it's been 2 weeks but STILL! :)

Life has been good lately.  We've been busy busy, but it's all good!  Today is my work "end of busy season" party and I'm really looking forward to it!  Here's a snapshot of the party last year...

This year should be fun!


This week, I ordered two things I've really been wanting - the Hue Ultrawide Waistband Leggings in Graphite Heather (25% off right now!) and a cute plaid infinity scarf!  These are perfect for the fall!


I made this Turkey Pumpkin Chili recipe last weekend and it was a hit with the hubs and my friends that were visiting!  It's healthy and delicious.  Thank you Tiffany and Jennifer for helping me find this recipe through the Shine Blog Hop last week.


Over my vacation, I read my first Elin Hilderbrand book, The Matchmaker. (Ok, well I finish it in my backyard when we got back)  It was a cute, little beach read.  I wouldn't say that it blew me away, but I hear that her other books are better so I look forward to reading them.

If you've read any Elin Hilderbrand, which book is your favorite?


I made a quick stop by Target on Wednesday night and, of course, left super happy!  Seriously though, that place just makes me giddy!

3 different packages for notecards ($1 each!)
Cab/Shiraz Box Wine (you can make fun, but it's the best cheap wine out there)


Lately, I've changed my breakfast routine and I'm digging it.  It's simple and healthy!  I just throw the dry ingredients in a tupperware, milk in another one, fruit in another and take it to work when I'm in a hurry.  Then I mix the milk with the dry ingredients, microwave it, put the fruit on top and eat!

coconut palm sugar
almond milk

Have a great weekend, folks!

Linking up with KarliErikaAmanda and April!



  1. Target is like a black hole - you go in for one thing 2 hours later you're confused with what happened but seriously happy! Hope you have a great time at your party tonight - you deserve it! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Ugh Target is awesome. Those leggings that you got are super cute! I love graphite leggings because I feel like not everyone has them! x, kenz

  3. Hooray for a season of leggings and scarves, and warm bowls of chili!! We enjoyed some this week too! ;) I absolutely agree with you on Target! I always leave happy too....maybe with a little less money, but always happy - lol! Enjoy the party tonight! At the end of a busy season you certainly deserve some fun! :)
