Happy Friday! I can’t believe we are halfway through October already! It feels like it is flying by! My local grocery store ran it’s annual Halloween candy stock up sale and it’s already over. I hit the sale pretty hard and have hidden all the candy away. I have a bunch of favorites from this week so let’s get to them.
Favorite 1: SUNSHINE!! The sun did not shine for DAYS!!! I was getting a little grouchy and down in the dumps with the gray skies. It finally came out Wednesday evening and Thursday was gorgeous! I took this picture as I was getting out of my car at work Thursday morning. The sunrise and the fog were so beautiful together.
Favorite 2: MAIL!!! I ordered a few things from Cora’s Den and they came two days earlier than the post office tracking originally said they would come. I was thrilled to open it up and see all the goodies!! You can still order some fun Halloween jewelry and check out the fun Thanksgiving selections, too! Be sure to use SUNSHINEANDBOOKS10 when you checkout to save a little.
I have been loving some other jewelry this week, too. My patriotic necklace and my Olympic Rings necklace have been a big hit at school!
I wore my candy corn earrings on conference night and a bunch of parents loved them!
Favorite 3: WALMART!! I have had a lot of success with Walmart online lately. I ordered these navy flats and they are so comfortable! I went back to get them in black, but got these gold loafers. They are also so comfortable and versatile! They are both C.Wonder and on a great sale.
Favorite 4: HIGH SCHOOL!! My high school named the field hockey field after my coaches this week. They are two amazing women who coached us to amazing things on the field (hello state champions!) and inspired us to be better women off the field. There were so many alumni at the ceremony and I had a great time catching up with friends. Hooper & Baker field is the first field named after women in our county and those two women are the best!
These are the girls I graduated with. We were just missing a few.
Favorite 5: WORKING IN THE KITCHEN!! The boys both used Luke’s cookbook to make something last weekend. Jack made yummy pancakes and Luke made sandwich cookies.
I shared the recipe for my family’s favorite bars yesterday. They are always a favorite. I shared them with my team at work and I think they loved them, too. I hope you enjoy them if you decide to make that delicious treat.
Favorite 6: BOOKS!! Kids have been checking so many books out of our school library this year and it is great!! This was the book stack on Tuesday when I only teach half the day. All of those returned books mean that all those kids are getting new books that afternoon!
We have a very low key weekend with one soccer game and one golf match. The weather looks gorgeous on Saturday and I hope to take advantage of it by doing something outside. Have a great weekend full of sunshine and books!
