Friday Favorites #30.

Happy Friday the 13th, y'all!  I'm not superstitious but it still sounds a little creepy.


I absolutely agree with this so I'll take it.  ;)

Today, like (almost) every Friday, I'm linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci for Friday Favorites!

So let's go!

Last weekend was kind of amazing.  Craig made an alumni appearance at the Packers Pep Rally in Dallas and then we went to the game the next day.  We crashed some tailgate parties, sat in the President's suite and my husband embarrassed me in front of Clay Matthews.  ;)  Read all about it HERE.  I wish we were doing it all over again this weekend!

This one is pretty random but when I went to dinner with these girls last Thursday night, we ordered some of the restaurant's Truffled Parmesan Chips.

(Chips are behind that yummy cocktail.)

I posted that picture on Instagram earlier this week and all my friends from that night started commenting on the chips.  And then it turned into more chatter about them in our group text when our friend, Brittany sent us this picture on Wednesday.

She picked them up at Trader Joe's and raved about them!  #shehadmeattruffle 

We were all planning to grab some the next time we were at Trader Joe's and the plan was melt a little shaved parm on them as well. #yesplease

Last night, on our way home from Matthew's baseball game my phone started blowing up with texts.  Brittany sent us all a text saying she had already gone back to the store for more and to check our porches.  She got each of us a bag of these yummy chips, drove to all our houses and left them on our porches!!  How sweet is that?!!

And by the way, she was right.  They are so delicious. You could put truffle oil on just about anything and I would eat it.  That stuff is just GOOD.  (Have you ever tried truffle fries?  YUM.)

My Etsy shop is still keeping me incredibly busy!  Here are a few favorites from this week!

These are so pretty, right?!  Available in the multicolored or pink!

All the 20oz stainless steel tumblers (above) come with a matching straw!

Order these little teacher name signs now so you'll be all set for your teacher's Christmas gift!  And if you don't need them for a teacher, I can put any name/word on there instead!  Just message me through Etsy!  :)

These are a new addition to the shop!  Cute right?!!  I LOVE holiday wine glasses!  I'll have a limited number of these, so get them while you can!

And ohhhhh these multicolored confetti water bottles and tumblers!  I've got the 22oz tumblers (right) in all red as well when you start thinking about Christmas!  (Also available in turquoise, pink, black, purple and gold!)

And here are a few of my new fall sign listings!  I'm so glad we got a couple of days this week with temps below 80!  It actually felt like fall for just a minute there!

Current turnaround time is 1-2 weeks so please keep that in mind!  I do have a Rush Processing Fee available if you need it.  (Most listings include a link directly to it so make sure to tap on Item Details to find it.  It will bump your order to the top of my list, which is usually somewhere around 75-100, and guarantee your order to ship out within 2 business days.)

My quest for the best mascara ever (HERE) is still ongoing, but I've been trying out a few new ones this week and there are a couple that deserve a mention already.

I ordered the Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes and it came with a really small sample size of the Lancome Monsieur Mascara.

The Charlotte mascara is good stuff.  I really love it for everyday.  It gives a nice natural look.  And by natural, I mean no clumps, long, dark and full  But not crazy thick and dramatic.  Think work, school, baseball games, shopping, lunch with friends.  It just makes my eyelashes look very pretty.

Now the Lancome one was totally different.  With the first swipe, I did an audible "Whoa!".  This one gives you full, thick, long, dark, dramatic lashes with just one coat.  (Go big or go home though, right?  So go ahead and do two!)  Perfect for when you need a little more wow...or if you're like me, it's a great way to look like you are wide awake and pulled together even when you're just wearing jeans, flip flops, a tee and your hair in a messy bun.

I'm wearing the Lancome one in this picture.

Here are a few more that got mentioned in my Instagram post and in the comments on my blog post.

I took a book break for a couple of weeks after I finished The Couple Next Door.  To see what I thought about that and The Breakdown (!!!!!!!) go HERE.  

But after those two books, I just needed something a little lighter to entertain me for awhile.  So I was practically giddy when I checked Hulu and saw a whole 90s sitcom section!!  I used to LIVE for TGIF.  Step by Step, Family Matters, Dinosaurs, Home Improvement, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Hangin' with Mr. Cooper... This 90s era teenager was pumped.  TGIF, girls!!!

I started with Step by Step because it was my favorite!  And it was even better than I remembered.  Probably because binge watching shows is just more fun.  

Thank you, Hulu!  

By the way, does anyone remember the show My Two Dads?  Where can I watch that??!

This week's #icanteven goes to a t-shirt.

It's a Gucci t-shirt.  Speaking of the 90s, it looks like something I would have worn 2 sizes too big back in middle school in1994 with my Z Cavariccis and penny loafers. But compared to the stuff I've shown you in the past, it's not awful.  No biggie, right?  (We won't mention that model's deer in the headlights expression and weird acorn earrings.)

But y'all.  This t-shirt is $590.  For a T-SHIRT.

It better be spun with gold and laced with diamond dust for that price.

Even if you were a billionaire, would you buy a t-shirt for $590?  Even if it was the cutest one ever?

I just can't.


And don't forget about the new linkup that will start November 1st.

This is the time to confess your weird, your wild, your crazy!  Confess your embarrassing vice, your secret for dealing with stress, or just a major love for (fill-in-the-blank)!
