Friday Favorites

My Favorite Post to do is Friday Favorites! I love to pass along all the things I am loving because who knows who else might benefit from the ideas or the items! Linking up with Andrea and Erika for the first time in a long time for this random edition of ....

My favorite thing to do around the house is decorate and little by little different areas of the house are getting finished.There is still so much to do, but every little thing that gets done gets me excited. Today I am going to show you a few of my favorite spots around the house!

These shelves. You guys, I had a vision and it looks exactly as I expected it would. I could not love these shelves more. I had picked up some of the items used to decorate them over time, knowing I would have them someday! Then I picked up a few new fall decorations to finish it off. 

I could not be happier. And, they were so easy. So, so easy. I bought these brackets on Amazon which you can find by clicking here

Then Mike bought 2x8's and cut them to size for me. I stained them, Mike hung up the brackets and in an afternoon the shelves were done! Amazing. I would definitely recommend these rustic brackets, simple yet the whole thing really makes a statement!

Gallery walls are my favorite! I am still working on choosing pictures for this set, but the look makes me happy when I come up the stairs. 

I bought this set of 9 frames on Amazon. Perfect Gallery wall, it even comes with a template that you hang on the wall to make hanging the frames super easy, I could do it myself! I bought 2 sets of frames so that I could cover the whole wall. 

I had 3 frames left over, that for now, I put over my bed! 

That isn't their forever home because I have big plans for the wall behind the bed someday, but one thing at a time!

My favorite decorating project this week had to do with paint and a floor! If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don't, you should @slitcher) I instastoried (is that a word??) about the process when I started the other day. I am hoping to maybe finish it up today and I will probably put some updates on Instagram again! I can't wait to see it all finished.

OK, my favorites for my friends that aren't into decorating, how about some TV and book talk? 

#1 Younger

Have you watched this show? If you haven't you totally should. I could not stop watching it. I love a fun 30 minute comedy. I was able to watch the seasons on Hulu, then catch up on the current season, which sadly just ended!  

#2 Ozark

This is a Netflix original that Mike and I have started watching. This is definitely one of those shows you could binge on. We have to try really hard each night to cut ourselves off after one or two episodes. 

#3 This is Us

It's almost back!! I can not wait to watch this again! If you have not watched it yet, you have a few more days to catch up on season 1 before season 2 starts!  

Book Club is my favorite! I love that because of book club, I have to read some books that are different than the usual book I would pick out. We have read books that I would never have chosen and then really loved. And who doesn't love to sit around with friends, have a glass of wine and chat? Last month we had sangria and sat out on a deck, it was a perfect fall night! This month we are reading The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas. Has anyone read this one? I am going to order it, and was curious if I could read it with Olivia? If anyone has read it, let me know if I can read it with an eleven year old, I would appreciate it! 

Some other favorites from the week...

A hike and lunch with one of my friends that I don't get to see very often. 

Date Night! We had dinner and drinks out with friends this weekend!

This boy scoring goals in soccer this year. Wow has he improved! And he ran in his first track meet!

This girl went to her first Middle School dance...what?? I still can't believe it! 

I think that about does it for favorites this week! Next week I am thinking about a health update! Stayed tuned to find out what is going on in the health department. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! Till next time!
