Friday Favorites #87

Happy Friday friends and cheers to the upcoming weekend! Although I’m not certain what our plans are I look forward to a slower pace and sleeping in! Monday-Friday I get up by 4am so I can have some quite time, read some blogs, and then head to the gym. So when Saturday rolls around and I naturally wake at 4am it feels so good to be able to go back to sleep! Being an early riser is a favorite – I love getting all the things done!

Let’s get to this week’s favorites! First of all, I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your feedback on Monday’s post.  Each comment was so helpful and I will be revising my packing list and sharing it with you all. I heard you loud and clear – comfortable shoes, layers, and rain gear!

Another favorite from this week is my tiered tray all decked out for fall! We go to church on Saturday evenings so Sunday morning I cleaned the house and pulled out the fall decor.  I have so many little touches of fall scattered throughout the house but my favorite is my tiered tray. Most of these pieces came from Dollar Tree – I love that!Fall Tiered Tray

Of course the inside of our home is the only place that feels like fall – look at the temperature that day!Temperature

Last weekend I scored a major deal on a new favorite, my leopard skirt. I shared it on Wednesday for the first Style Six Weekly Link Up! Not only are my co-hosts my favorites but all of you who linked up with us gave me reason to smile! I have lots more coming your way with this skirt, if you don’t already want one you WILL! #sorrynotsorry

Speaking of leopard, how cute is this dress? Under $30 and fabulous colors for fall. There are a few items I’d like for fall and a cute dress is one of them. I can’t always wear things that are “waist defined” but this one works and that gets me all kinds of excited!Old Navy Leopard Dress

On a more somber note, I am having a hard time believing it’s been 18 years since the 9/11 tragedy in our country. I remember that day well. While it changed our country FOREVER I am proud to be an American and proud of the way our country continues to honor the memories of the men and women who perished that day as well as those who have served our country.

WTC 1995

Twin Towers 1995

Back in 1995 my husband and I traveled with my parents to a wedding in NJ. Then we took a day trip to NYC where we were treated to a trip to the top of one of the WTC towers – the one that the public did not have access to. My uncle is a retired detective and was good friends with the head of security at the WTC.  Knowing we stood just years before on a spot that would later be the site of such terror still gives me goosebumps.

Well, that wraps it up for this week. Remember to make the most of each day my friends! I’ll see you on Monday!
