Thoughts For Friday

Oct 23, 2015

TGIF Friends!  Hard to believe next weekend is Halloween!

We have no real plans tonight but we have a date night planned for tomorrow night and my parents are keeping the kids overnight- it will be such a treat to sleep in. 

Papa ZuZu’s has quite possibly the best Greek Salad in town.  I used to pick this up all the time when I was pregnant because it was close to my doctor’s office but I had not had it since.  I picked it up this week and devoured it. 

This JCrew turtleneck has been on repeat lately.  I love the loose boxy fit.

The kids talked me into buying this eyeball balloon at the grocery store.  I have to say it was excellent purchase, it has kept them entertained for days.  They love to bring it everywhere with us.

I met a few girlfriends at Edmunds Oast for drinks and apps Wednesday night.  The first time I ate here I was disappointed in my meal this time it was much better.  The cheese and meat plate was delish.

 Found a new favorite blouse at Loft this week.

I bought it in two colors. Runs on the large side size down.

I snapped this picture of Frances sleeping.  I love that she is sleeping with her legs crossed and cuddling her baby.  She always tosses her blanket off. It melted my heart.

I am hooked on these new coconut oil face wipes from RMS Beauty.  I usually use coconut oil to remove my makeup but these are so much easier.  A little trick is I cut mine in half to make them last longer.   They are great for travel or just being on the go.

Gap Kids has the cutest stuff right now.  A few things I snagged for Frances Moon. 

I think I am going to put her in the plaid dress for Christmas pictures. Loving the penguin print too.

I decided to download and read Andy Cohen’s book for a lighter change of pace.  It is written in a diary style and I am enjoying his stories and honesty. It’s pretty darn funny.

The Tory Burch Private Sale started yesterday.

These cardigans are my favorite.  I just this white version.  I love the long loose fit.

Simone Cardigan

a few other favorites.  Such good deals many items are 70% off.

I have a hair appointment in a two weeks and I am still considering a long bob.  I found this picture of Molly Sims and it is exactly what I want.  Not too long or too short.

Happy Friday!

    I love a good Greek salad! I recently made Ina's middle eastern vegetable salad and it was delish. Oh, and making homemade pita chips puts it over the edge. I just cut my hair into a long bob after coming to terms that I can't be bleach blonde and forever trying to grow my hair out. It just doesn't work for me. You'll look great!

  3. I think the long bob would look GREAT on you!!

  4. Mary Taylor says:

    Definitely do the LOB! Your hair will look so much thicker and healthy.

  5. Love the bob! It would look so cute on you!

  6. You definitely should do that haircut! It would be so great on you! Happy weekend!
