I think this cooler weather is to blame. And that I’ve been writing from home more this week, rather than going to Coffeesmiths. Therefore, I’ve been all about comfy clothes. Surely, on Sunday afternoon, after your kids have trick-or-treated Saturday night like it was THEIR JOB, you’ll be ready for some comfy clothes to lounge in. At least I will.
Today I’m helping with Maxim’s Halloween parade and party at school. Then, we’ll scoot home for big brother Nate to change into his basketball uniform and head to his game. Tomorrow morning, we’ll be up with the birds and hurry off to Maxim’s basketball game. Then, I’ll be making and baking for Halloween and for my in-laws’ birthday party on Sunday. We will be busy. But I’ll find time to nibble on some Graveyard Bars 🙂
And that brings me to Fun Friday Favorites.
1. Graveyard Bars –
I know I shared the recipe on Wednesday, but if you didn’t check out the blog on Wednesday…do so. You’ll want to make these bars for your little boys and ghouls this weekend. These bars are “to die for” Hahaha 🙂 Graveyard Bars recipe
2. What I’m reading lately –
I wrote a post yesterday about the magazines and books we’re reading. I say “we” because I share about a few children’s books and they’d make great Christmas gifts. #startearly Check out my recommendations here: What I’m reading lately – October edition
3. Cotton leggings from Gap –
I bought these awhile back when Gap was having a sale (and they are currently having a sale right now, too!). I love the gray color. Throw on an over-sized cardigan or big sweatshirt with these leggings and you are set for LOUNGE MODE.
4. More cotton leggings from Gap –
Okay. These might be my favorite ones EVER. I got the blue fairisle and they are soooo cozy and soft. Plus, a nice switch from my usual gray. And. They are on sale. And when you enter code STYLE, you’ll get 35% off your purchase. Friends, that is what you call a GREEN LIGHT.
5. Pure Body open cardigan from Gap –
With the 35% off discount, this makes the cardigan a better price. You can wear this with jeans, leggings, or with the lounge leggings that I highlighted early. See the pic below…
6. Barefoot Dreams Drape Front Cardigan from Nordstrom –
YES. I’ve shared this item before, but FRIENDS. You have no idea how much I adore my Barefoot Dreams cardigan! And watch for sales on Nordstrom’s online site…that’ll justify the price (which is how I bought mine over the summer).
And because I am all about comfort, sometimes, I wear a hot mess of an outfit. But I can own it. Hahaha 🙂
Never mind my horrible picture taking skills. Nor the serious look on my face.#concentrating
7. Buffalo checkered PJ pants from Gap –
I always pick up a pair of pajama pants for Hubby each fall/winter. I like the blue and green buffalo check in these pants. Plus, Gap pajama pants hold up well.
Enjoy those little trick-or-treaters and be a good mom and BEG for all of their Hershey chocolate bars (instead of snitching them out of their buckets). Then, as you nibble on your kids’ Halloween candy, curled up in your comfy clothes, you can get excited about this…
If Saturday night it too early for you to think about Christmas and The Hallmark Channel, then wait until Sunday night.
Yes. I heart the holidays. 🙂
But for now…Happy Halloween! xo Angela Banae
