Friday Favorites-11.11.22

What has happened to me this year? Is it my age? Have you guys seen that one meme that says…

“Not to be dramatic but the sun setting at 5:00 p.m. everyday has ruined my life.”

I’ve always had positive thoughts about “gaining” an hour of sleep. I like having early late fall/winter nights that feel extra cozy but this week I’ve been READY for bed around 7:15 p.m. every single night. Are you feeling the same way? I’ve had buckets and buckets of coffee and STILL have gotten in bed before 9:00 p.m. every night. It seems as though we lost sleep instead of gained it this year. Am I alone in this?

I might be alone in thinking that BUT I’m not alone in sharing some Friday Favorites. My girl, Andrea, and I team up each week to share a few of our FAVORITES from the week. This week I’m changing it up and am in need of some of YOUR FAVORITES. I compiled a list of my questions along with some of my own faves.

I know I sound like a broken record here, but our house is undergoing a major renovation. And we’re getting so darn close to the finish line. I have some things I need to get ordered, some random things I’d love to know, and just more research to do before I commit….

First up, HAPPY VETERANS DAY! Thanking you and sending lots of gratitude for your service today and always. XO


Shay’s post yesterday had me thinking…I’VE GOT TO GET TO ORDERING OUR NEW WASHER AND DRYER. We took part of the stairs and our old pantry to create a new laundry space. The way the space is now set up we have to have the front loader washer and dryer. If you have a front loader that you love, please tell me what kind it is! I’ve read some good things about the Maytag 5.0 cubic feet Front Loader and the Samsung 5.0 cub feet Front Loader. My goals with laundry are to cram as much laundry into one load as humanly possible. Please shoot me any and all recs. I’ve heard lots about Speed Queens but they appear to be smaller. What are your thoughts? Worth the price for a smaller machine? Seriously would love any and all thoughts as I scramble to get this ordered soon.


Next up, PLEASE SEND me your moving IN tips. Our plan is to start with all the big furniture like beds, dressers, etc. and then go from there. I know being organized during a move is many of your jam but this is not my skill set. Do you have any suggestions? The countdown is ON and we should be back in our house in 9 days!!


Jasmine looks super confident on her magic carpet but I’m struggling in the rug department! I’m on the hunt for a dining room, living room, and master bedroom area rug. WHERE did you find yours? Right now the front runner is at Serena and Lily but I’m not one hundred percent sold. Please send me your recs!


If you’re in the middle of all the house things too, did you see my paint color post yesterday? You guys were sweet to send in some of the colors you used! Lots of great suggestions in the comments!


This is a pricey option for an Advent Calendar but Ebby Lee’s on that cusp of being too old to have lots of magical Christmas moments and she mentioned how much she loved this advent calendar last year. Well, that’s all it took for this mom. I was immediately sold. It comes with twenty-five treats from body lotions to face masks. It was so good last year that I’d wished I’d bought one for myself. This year instead of getting myself an advent calendar I’m buying ceiling fans so maybe next year. ha!


You guys know what happens this Sunday, right? My VERY FAVORITE show is BACK! The Duttons will back on Sunday night and to say I’m excited is a bit of an understatement. I might have gotten my dates wrong and called everyone I knew last week to tell them to watch Sunday only to realize I was a week ahead. #oops


Okay, this post was ALL OVER THE PLACE but that’s my life right this second. I hope you guys stay warm this weekend! See you Tuesday!
