Friday Favorites: Family Wedding, Historical Locations, Cute Pajamas and Help in Puerto Rico

Friday is here! Back today to link up with ErikaNarci and Andrea for Friday Favorites. Here's what I am finding Joy in this week.

1) Wedding weekend with all my people:

This weekend my nephew got married in New York and we got to be with my entire side of the family. Hockey Guy was a gift bearer and loved every minute of it. My parents were with all of the grandchildren and even their great grandchild...they had such Joy.

My niece and my dad

The venue was just spectacular, from the moment you drove up to the view outside. It overlooked the Long Island Sound and it was such a beautiful night for the happy couple.

Home Decor

I am not going to lie to house isn't really looking like fall right now. With my travel schedule and the fact that until late last week we still had the AC running almost all of the time, I have not really had the time or motivation to decorate for the fall season.

By late next week, the outside of the house will be ready to go with our annual Spooky Walk that Running Daddy and Hockey Guy set up every year with our neighbors. They do such a Good job on this and it is bring us Joy that our house is a neighborhood destination for so many families.


Popped and Paired Fall Snack and Cocktail Pairings Featuring SkinnyPop

Original  (4.4 oz. Bag)
SkinnyPop has been one of my go to snacks for the last several years. It is a treat I reach for when I need a work snack, a travel snack or I know when I am going to be in a place, like a track meet, for several hours where there may not be gluten free options. It's light, yummy, non-GMO and gluten free...what could be Better than that? 

SkinnyPop created several fall cocktail recipes and then paired them with their flavored popcorn for their Popped and Paired series. What I love about this concept is that this is the Best easy entertaining tip. In addition, because SkinnyPop is so light on the calories, you can easily spurge on cocktails and balance things out with your snack without feeling guilty.


Friday Favorites: Best Sweatshirt, Moscow Mule Gummies, Hearth and Hand Preview, NJ Housewives and Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Friday is here! Back today to link up with ErikaNarci and Andrea for Friday Favorites. Here's what I am finding Joy in this week.

1) JoyLab Turtleneck Layering Sweatshirt

JoyLab is the new athleisure line from Target and it's amazing. I was in Minneapolis this week and checked out the new line because while it was crazy hot and humid at home...the Twin Cities felt just like fall. This is the Best sweatshirt for pairing with your leggings for hanging out in a hotel room but could also go with jeans. The fabric is light and super soft and the turtleneck has the perfect amount of slouch. Runs true to size, I took a small.

Workin' It Wednesday: Making Your House Cozy

Today I am linking up with Shay & Erika for their Workin' It series. October's topic is "Making Your House Cozy." I am going to do my Best here, because it is currently in the 70's and 80's ...and it shouldn't be this time of year. So as I write this post I will pretend that the air is crisp and that it doesn't feel like you are standing inside someone's mouth currently outside. Seriously, it is so gross out.

Flannel Sheets

We love flannel sheets in our house. I think it is the New Englander in me, but as soon as it is semi cool out I try to get our flannel sheets on the beds. 


Friday Favorites: Leopard Shoes, Feeling Better When You Are Sick, Good Low Cal Ice Cream

This week actually flew by. Back today to link up with ErikaNarci, and Andrea for Friday Favorites. Here's what I am finding Joy in this week.

1) When the urgent lines are short:

I woke up crazy early Saturday morning with my head pounding and totally stuffed up. I have been fighting this for over a week and knew it was time for me to get some Better meds. When Hockey Guy woke up, I told him he should eat a quick breakfast and get dressed because he needed to go to urgent care with me before they got too busy. Running Daddy was going to be at the track meet all day, so I needed my urgent care companion. I mentioned that we needed to get there early before the sprained ankles from soccer and fall ball got there!
