It's the end of a long but Good week. We had book reports, projects, tests, board meetings and snow days. Yes, a snow day and a delay in November. I am enjoying a glass of chardonnay after a really Good meal with the fire going and the Hallmark Channel on ready to share with you some very simple Friday Favorites. Today I am linking up with  The Blended BlogErikaNarci and Andrea to share my simple Joys this week. 

1) Pioneer Woman Dazzling Dahlia Soup Mug

We had a hockey game about an hour from the house last Sunday. I needed to run some errands and I remembered that there was a brand new Walmart right across the street from the rink. There is no shame in the Walmart game but the ones near our house are not that Good. This one because it is almost brand new and huge was so much Better and I got all of my errands done there.

One thing that I needed was a big soup mug for work. I love to bring homemade soup for lunch in the winter and it will be Good to lighten up at lunch during the holiday season. 

I found this super sweet soup mug with lid from the Pioneer Woman collection. The Best part, it was about $5. This mug will be getting a lot of use over the next few months.

2) Frontier Soup

I have been a fan of Frontier Soups for more than a decade. I first bought them at the Junior League Holiday Shops and then have also ordered online. I was so happy to find them at my local Harris Teeter recently.

The Best thing about these soups is that you can make them quickly on the stove top or most of them also offer directions for the slow cooker as well. Many of their soups are also gluten free including the chicken noodle above. I will be making the tortilla soup this weekend to have on hand with the upcoming busy week. It will be a light, wholesome meal to have on hand. These soups can also be found at many Whole Foods stores. 

3) J Crew Factory Buy One/Get One

Online only, right now...J Crew Factory is having buy one/get one on clearance items. Time to get a jump start on your holiday shopping or grab a bargain for your holiday travel wear.

The deals are really Good including a couple of items I have and have shown on this very blog. I wear this woven collar sweater all the time. It can be casual or dressed up with a black skirt. The Teddie sweater is a perfect staple and comes in a ton of colors.

4) The Magnificent Seven

On Monday I linked up with The Blended Blog to talk all things gratitude. I wrote about the Best group of women I know in my industry. We have been getting together for lunch for about 6 years, although I have known most of them for well over a decade. We are each others first line when we have questions in our industry. But the Best part is all of us support each other, cheer for each other and no one is competitive in this group. To learn more about these amazing ladies check out this post

5) 32 Degrees Tech Jogger Pants

If you are in Costco and you see these pants, buy them. They are light but super warm. I am always cold and have had them on all afternoon. They were a really Good option for walking Stormy in the sleet and rain this afternoon.

Dancing Granny and I are big fans of the 32 Degrees brand that you can get at Costco. Since I spend so much time in ice rinks, I have found that these are the Best option for long underwear. When I saw these sweatpants on Saturday for $12.99 they went right in my cart. They are super warm without being bulky. I am probably going to pick up another pair if I head to Costco again this weekend.  I think they run a little small so I chose the medium. I am probably going to live in these this winter during my downtime.

That's a wrap for this week lovelies. I hope you all have a really Good weekend getting ready for Thanksgiving!
