Happy Friday everyone! This week we were brought back down to reality as temps went from soaring to 80+ degrees last weekend, to more seasonal appropriate highs in the 60s. Eek! Me thinks there’s no looking back at this point. Are you ready? Ben and I are getting our chimney cleaned this weekend so we can build glorious roaring fires when the time comes.

Chilly temps aside, here are my favorite finds from around the web this week!

Favorite feel-good photo. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!


Favorite salad: Arugula, Mango, Macadamia Nut & Avocado Salad. This looks divine, and juicy!


Favorite find: Clinique Acne Solutions Spot Healing Gel. I’ve told you guys about this stuff before, but it’s worth mentioning again. A bottle lasts FOREVER since you only need a tiny bit, and it works so quick.

Favorite brunch: Jalapeno Popper Quiche. Doesn’t this look heavenly?


Favorite DIY project: Magazine rack/mail sorter. Grab a couple of wood brackets from the hardware store, wood glue and a can of spray paint. Voila!

Favorite dress. Pink? Check. Sparkles? Check. Now can someone just lend me $1100??

Oh! Plus $895 for the shoes to go with. Sheesh! ;)

Favorite front door. This feel like the outside of the Blair House in DC. Cozy. :)


Favorite sneak peek treat: Gingerbread Truffles. Sorry, I had to! I know it’s not even Halloween yet, but if I don’t share some of the awesome Christmasy stuff I’ve found on the web so far, I’ll explode!


Favorite funny. I don’t know why, but I’ve been laughing at this picture for days. Ben think I’m nuts.


Favorite outfit. I have this dress in blue – now I just need those adorable boots.


Favorite party bite: Prosciutto & Frig Crostini. I am obsessed with prosciutto AND fig jam. Put them together on toasted bread? Done. :)

Favorite yummy scent. Try simmering these mouthwatering combos on your stove to make your entire house smell spectacular!


Favorite trip: Southern Utah National Parks Tour. This 12 day itinerary includes a stop in Zion National Park, which I am just dying to see.


Favorite photo. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to grow up in the deep south. I have a feeling this tree and swing would be heavily involved.


Favorite bite: Cake Batter Truffles. You don’t know how much willpower it is taking to not make these!


Favorite simple statement: Droplet necklace. GOSH I LOVE THIS!


Favorite dip: White Trash Dip. I’d make this for the name alone – bahaha!


Favorite look. Sigh…


Favorite baking finds: I’ve been on a massive seasonal baking kick recently (more so wanting to bake, than actually baking…) Here are the items on my GOT to make list! Apple Fritter Muffins


Pumpkin Gingersnap Cookies


100 Calorie Pumpkin Pie Tartlets


Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies


Inside Out Caramel Apples


Have a great weekend everyone!
