Friday Favorites: A Beautiful Fall Week

We had a wonderful week.  With our weather feeling a bit more fall-like we have been making every effort to get outside and enjoy it.  We went on lots of hikes this week! 




Friday was just beautiful and Evan and I took advantage of the weather to go for a hike.  







I am loving this new pumpkin spice granola! It has been a delicious way to add some flavor to my yogurt parfait breakfasts.



Speaking of foods-- these Java chip Oreos are just dangerously good!  The boys had been asking for some snacks and we picked up a couple of packages of Oreos but these were my favorite.    



I had the house to myself all afternoon on Saturday while the boys and my husband went to the movies.  I love having that peace and quiet every now and then.  I spent most of my time reading on the deck.




My husband and I had a wonderful afternoon out of the RZR Sunday.  It was beautiful out and stopped alongside a pretty pond for a snack.





It was a bit muddy




It was another beautiful day on Monday so Evan and I headed out on a hike as soon as his schoolwork was done.  It was wonderful aside from all the mosquitoes that ate us alive!




We woke to a thunderstorm and some heavy rains on Thursday but it cleared enough that by late morning Evan and I decided to walk to the state park and do some hiking.  






We've had some incredibly beautiful sunrises over the lake this week! 











I got a new Stitch Fix box in this week and ended up keeping the whole thing! That has only ever happened one other time but I am loving these new lighter colored jeans.  I have been wearing dark jeans for so long that I forgot how fun the lighter washes can be. 

I also love the little button details of the sweater near the wrists; so cute!


I haven't painted my nails in what feels like forever.  I jumped on the Colorstreet bandwagon pretty quickly and have been using them for months but this week I got the urge to actually paint my nails.  I forgot how much fun that can be... they're just plain gray right now but I have plans to add a few nail stickers to them before the weekend.

  4. I saw those Oreos at the store the other day and I wanted to get them so bad, but nobody else in my fam likes coffee flavored stuff. I knew that meant I'd have to eat the whole bag so I just left them on the shelf. Now you have me rethinking my decision. Haha.

    1. My oldest son LOVES coffee flavored things so I hoped he'd eat most of them.

    1. Thank you! I keep hoping it will get JUST cold enough to get rid of the mosquitoes but not too cold to hike.
