FRIDAY = I don't want to work!


In lieu of the cold front comnig in this weekend...I wanted to show off some fun, warm weather things! I love being all warm and cozy when it's cold outside!! I do NOT enjoy being cold! I hope you enjoy the items!!!!

First favorite store Francesca's has this SUPER cute turtleneck shirt available! It's called the Bees Knees Turtle Neck (even the name is cute!) and it's actually on sale for $30.40 right now! It would be so cute with jeans, flats, and fun jewelry! I bet that you could easily dress it up or down!

Another one from Francesca's is this long gray sweater (i promise that I really DO wear color)! It's called the Pratt Cardigan and it's on sale for $43.20 right now! I would love to get this and wear it with leggings and flats! So comfy and warm! YAY!

Next on my list of things to have for winter are these AMAZING La Crosse Goose Down comforters from Company Store! I have two of these twin sized ones that I used when I was in college. Now that I don't have a twin sized dorm room bed anymore, I pull one out every night and snuggle up on the couch with it! They are pretty light and they create warmth when you are cold but at the same time they don't make you too hot and are comfy anytime! I absolutely LOVE mine! They are worth the money and will last a long time!

I am in LOVE with these slippers and I think that I REALLLLLLLLLLY need some! These are from Company Store as well! They are made of wool and are so super cute! They remind me of my pups! I love having house shoes! I know that sounds so old lady of me...but I have a pair of blue mocasins that I put on every morning when I get out of bed. I do not like having cold feet! :)

You HAVE to have candles or a fire going when it's cold outside....right??? These super cute candles are from Pottery Barn! They would make such super cute gifts too! I just love monogramed things and these are so classic looking! They also have delicious amber vanilla wax in them! They are $25 each on the website!

Another Pottery Barn love of mine... these Faux Fur Throws!!! How yummy are they?! They come in four different colors. My personal favorite is the Frosted Taupe one. I bet they are soooo stinking warm! The prives vary on these... so beware! I just want to go home and cuddle up right now...

Pottery Barn also has these great Chunky Hand Knit Throws! A good friend of mine directed me to these the other day! How snuggly do THOSE look?! It's like having a huge comfy sweater on! Hmmm...I think I would have to get the chocolate brown or the red. SO cute! know how I LOVE houndstooth? Well...Forever21 has THIS jacket in stock and I am a huge fan! It's ONLY $37.80!!!! I just think that knee-length, tie-around-the-waist coats are so flattering too! This would be a great little piece to could go with anything! You can definitely dress it up or dress it down!!

And you know me...I HAD to just throw this in the mix becuase I just thought it was so stinking cute! I know it's REALLY random looking...but I think it would be a great bag to have! I love the shape of it! Short handles are my fave! This is another one from Francesca's! Gosh...I love that store!

This is my all time favorite winter MUST HAVE! Alpine Spiced Cider! Delish!!! I am drinking some right now as I sit at my desk! Go get some!!!

I hope that you enjoyed it all! Keep warm this weekend and have lots of fun! I promise to get a picture of the new dresser up soon! I think it turned out really cool looking!! But, you all will have to be the judge of that!!

I just bought THIS on Craigslist and I am making it my official project of the weekend!!! I am planning on painting it black, possibly putting on new hardware, and using it as an entry table!! I am sooooooo excited! I have been looking everywhere for a cool entry table or dresser to use as one and really didn't want to spend a TON of money on it! I got this one for $40!! Casey is picking it up this afternoon for me!!! YAY!!!! I am a little worried that it might be HUGE...but oh well!!! I will try to remember to post pics of the finished product!!

I'm not going to lie...I cried. I mean, I didn't flat our BAWL....but I shed a few tears for our country. And let me just say...they were not happy tears.....

I am hoping for the best...but I know that the BEST didn't get voted in...
