This Friday I wanted to share some things I’ve been loving lately.
This blog has been one of my very favorites to follow this fall. If you haven’t seen Fixer Upper on HGTV, it is a must watch. Chip and Joanna Gaines just seem like people you want to be best friends with. What I love most about their work is Joanna’s style that she brings to every project. No two houses are the same, and they have a very unique vintage-mixed-with-new design. Seriously, peruse her blog for a bit. She has beautiful pictures and great inspiration.
Apple crisp. I first made it this year on my trip to see Laura and I’ve made it two more times since then. To me, it is just the perfect fall dessert. And it always reminds me of my mom because it was the dessert she made for us every fall when we were growing up. I used a recipe from Mark Bitman’s How to Cook Everything here at home, but tonight as I was making it I remembered this recipe that I’ve made in the past, in the crock pot! How awesome is that?! It is so easy and so delicious!
Painting my nails! I don’t know why this is exciting to me right now, but it is. I’m guessing the novelty will wear off in a hot minute, but for right now it’s fun :). Here’s the thing, though. I rarely, read: never ever, use a whole bottle of nail polish. I think I have three different colors at the moment and I’m hesitant to buy more because I’ll end up throwing most of it away. Also, nail polish tends to get kind of goopy and hard to use after awhile. Is there a way to keep that from happening? I’ve been looking at different sets of mini polishes, but can’t decide on just one. Here are the some that I like so far: here, here, and here. I need some good fall colors. Any other polishes that you love? Are minis the way to go if I don’t paint my nails very much?
Friday, Night. Lights. Love it. I may or may not be obsessed. I’m trying to get everyone I know to watch it. Mostly, I just need someone to talk to about it. Corey’s sick of me talking his ear off about a show he’s never seen. Ha! This show has totally fed into my recent love for all things Texas. It helps that the Cowboys are having an amazing season :).
Those are all my favorites this week. I’m in Cleveland this weekend spending time with my sister, and I just couldn’t be more excited!
