Friday Faves

{soaking up these last few sunny days}

Happy Friday, friends!  I don’t say this often, but I feel like this past week flew by. How is it already October? My little baby nephew is two months old today – time really does fly, as they say. He’s getting so big (sob!).  Any fun plans for the weekend? I’m heading to a farmhouse wedding tomorrow, and then brunch with my book club girlfriends on Sunday. And I get to meet not one but two new babies, Charlie and Cameron (belonging to my friends Heather and Karrie, respectively).  Going to see Gone Girl tonight – CAN. NOT. WAIT. I suspect it might be a huge disappointment, but hopefully I’m wrong.  Wishing everyone a sunny and relaxing weekend! Some fun links and pics (I hope you guys appreciate these links, because sometimes it’s really hard to come up with five good ones 🙂 But I do it because I love you – and I know how hard it can be to get through a Friday sometimes so hopefully this helps you kill some time!):

  • This tailgate looks AH-mazing
  • Because I always want a crispy crust when eating leftover pizza
  • I’ve been getting a ton of compliments on my skin lately – want to know my secret? (in “warm soul” and I use it more like a bronzer)
  • Grilled cheese? Yes, please!
  • The best color, for all things, all of the time

Not pictured but a must for any baby halloween gift – skull diapers.}

  1. Instructions from barista were as follows: make a simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, bring to a boil, simmer until sugar is dissolved, let cool), add pumpkin puree, add spices. All the recipes I found used about 1/3 cup pumpkin for a 1 cup sugar/1 cup water syrup – I doubled that and would still advise using more, maybe even equal parts pumpkin/sugar/water (see how much more orange the coffee shop one is than mine?). Spices to taste – pumpkin spice and/or cinnamon/nutmeg/cloves/ginger/allspice. To be honest I didn’t love the way mine turned out so I would just suggest experimenting until you find your perfect version – mine needed more pumpkin, less spice. Good luck!
