Friday Favorites

It's Friday! But not only is it Friday - it's the Friday of a 3-day weekend. 

And that deserves an EXTRA large Friday smile. 

Per usual, I'm linking up with Erika and April for {Five on {Friday} Favorites!}

 1. The Return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte

How does that picture not make you smile? 

Okay okay so I technically get pumpkin spice mistos but the goodness is the same regardless. The PSL returns *officially* on Tuesday (September 8th), but if you're lucky, the Starbucks nearest you will have it TODAY. So go check! Last night I checked the location near me by acting like I was going to place a beta order (the app option that let's you order ahead) and all things pumpkin popped up!

So I may or may not have walked to Starbucks at 6 a.m. to get one before the masses did. You say ridiculous, I say loyal and brilliant.

And what's better to go with your favorite coffee other than.....

2. Coffee Cake Muffin

....a coffee cake muffin! On Monday I shared this goodness of a breakfast recipe with you, and you have to admit those puppies look pretty scrumptious. Even I was impressed with how they turned out. They're courtesy of Paula Deen - they can't NOT be good. Find the recipe here

I mean I just gave you coffee and coffee cake. Hello Friday breakfast.

3. Oversized Blown Up Check Scarf - Asos

I sent this to my sister yesterday and I've been thinking about it ever since. I'm hopping on the plaid train this fall. I can feel it. Normally I'm doing good if I embrace stripes (I've never been one for extreme prints), but boy oh boy am I feeling the plaid. 

PLUS when the weather gets cold I want to wear an oversized scarf every day. It's like the work-appropriate fuzzy bathrobe. If you make me adult, I will definitely find me a way to comfy adult. See the coziness here

4. Sole Mate - Essie

I treated myself to a mani/pedi this weekend (I try to paint my own most of the time but sometimes those puppies need professional help), and since we were kicking off "fall" this weekend I decided to bring along one of my favorite fall Essie colors! This is Sole Mate - it's basically a dark purple. Y'all I have gotten so many compliments on this color this week. As in people are writing it down. It's really the perfect fall color (in my purple-biased opinion!)

Pssst - how does my picture look? Am I ready for pinterest yet? :)

5. Funny Quote

And last but not least, I'm leaving you with a quote that my friend Kristie sent me last night that I laughed about for approximately 5 minutes straight. 

 I mean Anyone else? How many of you just did this with that scarf up there? I mean really. This is just too dang good. Still laughing. 

And those are my five favorites!! I hope you all have a wonderful {long} weekend celebrating the last weekend of summer. Be safe, be smart, and I'll see you on Tuesday. 

Until next time,


  1. Love all of these! So ready for Fall everything!

  2. Oooo love the nail color! It's fantastic! My starbucks actually had PSLs last week. I guess they were ahead of the curve and broke them out early!
