Friday, is it really you? I love you. Just 7 business days left till the crazy time at work is over. It can’t come fast enough. Then I will return to normal, well my normal anyways. Until then I will throw myself into the bedroom makeover and baking. Hey we all have our vices. This weekend I hope to finish a DIY bench project and making some side tables. Don’t worry I’ll be sure to share the progress. Until then enjoy some of my favorites from the week.
Favorite Book: This is from the same author that wrote Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans which I loved. So when this came out I wanted to read it right away. I have had a slew of mediocre books lately so I wanted to read this to hopefully get my mojo back. I didn’t love this one as much as the other but it was good.
Summary: Amy and her daughter get caught up in a robbery turned kidnapping. Amy’s daughter gets taken by a masked man who promises her safe return. George thought he was just going to a casino with his brother but gets pulled into his scheme to rob an armored truck.
Kidnapper turned hero George, wants to walk away but Amy tracks him down at his shop. She is clearly struggling with PTSD and her daughter stops speaking. George wants to help protect her and her daughter but finds himself falling for her.
Thoughts: I liked the pace of the book, it went quickly. The story was well written and each character was well developed. The only thing I had a hard time with was that I wish there was a few secondary character developments. It would have broken up the story a little bit more.
Favorite Fall Outfit: Fall is coming and so cleaning out the closet and make sure we have the staples are a given. This outfit will be my uniform this fall.
Favorite DIY project: This might really solve my mug storage dilemma. Can i have those shelves too?!
Favorite Quote: I do tend to wear my emotions on my sleeve. I cry more so for others going through things, or when they succeed then I do for myself. I will use this advice and see it as a strength than a weakness.
Clearly women are the smarter species! 😉
Touche’ – I need to use this if I ever get pulled over. Laughed way too hard, after I read it the second time.
Now get out there and have some fun!
What do you have planned for the weekend?
I just started Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans and I like it so far! I really like the mug-hanging idea, my coffee mug cabinet is always a huge mess!
Glad you like it, one of my favorite recent reads. Girl, you and me both, busting at the seams!! Happy Friday!

OMG that last one about the police officer is priceless!!! I love the Fall outfit inspo – it’s cooling off here so you’ll be wearing that sooner than you think!! Have a great weekend!!
I laughed so hard. Yes, it is freezing in the morning and getting cooler in the afternoons. Very fall like lately. Hope you have a great weekend!

Enjoy your weekend. Glad your crazy work
Time is almost over!
Love, SMD’s Momma
It is getting perfect crisp lately. You are very strong then. Hope you have a great weekend!
Love the outfit. Perfect for fall. That quote is fantastic, love it!! Oh my that police officer story is too funny!!! Have a great weekend!!
I am so excited to start wearing boots again. Hope you have a great weekend!
Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans sounds like a book I’d like 🙂 I love the open shelves with mugs, and plates but alas I think I am too messy for that. Have a great weekend!
It is really good, and all the characters are well developed. I just want the wire rack below it to hang my bajillion mugs! I can’t do open shelving either. Too messy!
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
hahahah that cop one is hilarious.
Can’t wait to see how your bench and tables turn out!
I can’t see any cop giving a ticket after that one! News Flash their is a food truck event in my town! Nothing may get done this weekend!! Haha! Just kidding – Operation Run Around Like The Tazmania Devil commences in 5 hours!
Bri @ My Life As says

Love that fall outfit and the kitchen storage! Yay for Friday!
Thank you. So happy for Friday!
wish the weather was cooler so i could wear that!! so pretty! i’m headed to the beach for a working vacation. i’m so excited!
I don’t know the warm weather is nice too. Fall is my favorite though. The beach?! Jealous, have fun!
Stopping by from Oh Hey Friday! That outfit is amazing and I wish I could snatch it out of the photo in its entirety and slap it right on me!
Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could shop Pinterest that way, and have it just appear in our closets?! We need to make that happen!
I love that fall outfit! Everything is perfect and I am a huge leg warmer under the boot fan!
Isn’t it perfect fall gear! I am feeling warmer already.
Love the outfit but I can’t deal with a scarf all day. I’m mconstantly fussing with it and it’s in my way. I wish I could learn to deal with them!
Oh that is not good. I am a total scarf person but I know others who can’t handle it either. Good thing is you can totally take it off when it bothers you, or switch it out for a statement necklace.
I should order Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans right now, even if I already have 20 other books waiting to be read.
I’m checking out the new Hobby Lobby and Petsmart this weekend, old people fun!
I really liked it a lot, each character had time in the book. Oh my gosh I am the same way, so many waiting to be read.
Oh, that sounds like my kinda fun, though watch out for PetSmart last weekend they had the adoption event and I almost snatched a dog. 😉
Melanie at Ribbons and Rotor Blades says
You always post the funniest things on your Friday Favorites!!! haha I love it!!!
And that fall outfit is exactly what I live in everyday of fall and winter lol
Thank you, it takes me awhile to find the right ones! I kinda wish I was wearing that outfit right now it is chilly today. Enjoy your warm weather while it lasts!
Love that outfit!!! And the Kool Aid Man is so me too! Haha!
Those shelves!!! YES!!!!
Have a great weekend!
Thank you. Glad I am not the only one with a dirty mind! 😉 So much more room for mugs with those shelves!
kathy@vodka and soda says
yes to hanging the mugs…HANG ALL THE THINGS! it’s a total space saver 🙂
Yes, I need the space. My mugs are completely taking over my kitchen!
Jessica Gardner says
Love that fall outfit.. I wish it would be fall in San Diego instead of African Summer
Trust me when it starts snowing here you will be grateful for that warm weather! 😉 Happy Friday!
Kelly (@KRod0519) says
Happy Friday! I like the new sidebar…it’s new, right? I like the design a lot….it’s pretty. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
Thank you. I’ve had it for awhile but it might show different depending on the platform. Hope you had a great weekend.
Andrea @ The Pineapple Cake says
I can’t get over those shelves for kitchen storage.
I’m totally in love!
I really need the storage for my mug addiction. Total must!
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
LOL I had to read the state trooper twice to get it. DUH LEEANN! I hope work calms down. That’s the worst – when it’s insane and you just have to deal with it, while counting down the days to sanity of course 😉
Have a great weekend!
Don’t fret I did too. Yes, I am totally counting down the days. Then I am taking a short staycation.
Sweaters, scarves, boots… hell to the mutha fuckin’ yizzah!
You know how I roll! Haha!
Kelly Mock says
Cute cute outfit!!!! Love the sweater!!!
Isn’t it the perfect Fall outfit. Not I must find 10 of each in different colors! Haha!
Oh Kerry, you always crack me up with these! The cop story!! It’s too bad I kind of drive like a Grandma and never get pulled over, otherwise I would have to try that 😉 And that outfit is perfection! Hope your weekend was great!
Thank you. The cop one left me laughing so hard. Hope you had a great weekend!
Bahahaha about the Trooper’s balls….I figured out a long time ago that I can feel the highest highs and the lowest lows, but without truly feeling the ‘bad’ emotions, we can’t fully understand the A-Mazingly great emotions. I’m okay with it!
Like how could he give a ticket after that one?! Loved it. Yes! I don’t feel bad for my emotions anymore, they all lead to FEELING, and that is okay. That fact we FEEL it and it doesn’t break us is pretty amazing!
I love that fall outfit! I’m not ready for the cold, but I’m ready for cozy clothes. haha
Haha!! Yes mid-60’s and comfy clothes is good. Cold weather not so much!
Krystal R says
I have to read that book! And that looks like the perfect Fall outfit!!
It was really cute, and worth a read. Really just give me all Fall outfits!! 🙂
