Thoughts for Thursday

Happy Thursday, y'all!
We have had a fun and busy week so far!  A few play dates, a shopping day, some cooking and baking, and lots of walks outside in this gorgeous weather!  

I'm linking up with Nat and Annie today to bring to you:
Thoughts for Thursday :)

So without further adieu....

1. Beauty Steal of the Week





I'm usually a Sephora gal, but I was over by an Ulta this week, and just had to stop by to see if anything caught my eye.  Well, it turns out, Ulta is in the middle of a fabulous month of awesome deals and steals :)  I am a big fan of the Tarte line, especially the Amazonian clay blushes, so when I saw this kit, I was intrigued!  You get a full sized lip gloss, pigment lipstick, cheek stain, and deluxe sized blush!  All in the color "Exposed" - a gorgeous neutral dusty pink.  Oh, and it's an $87 value for $34!  Right now, you also get a free gift with purchase (a sample mascara and setting powder.)  
Hurry up, because it's a limited time offer!  



2. Consignment Confessions

I'm officially addicted to Kids Consignment sales!  From online, to in-store, to local annual sales, I've been hitting the jackpot lately!  I've picked up new toys, cozy pajamas, winter jackets, a Halloween costume, and my favorite....these mini Hunter boots! 




Also, Facebook has a few great groups that I've been loving:
Smocks Rock
Snips and Snails (boys only) 
Smocked Boys Boutique Resale (boys only)

Have any of y'all gotten into consignment shopping??



3. Spinach Dip Mini Bread Bowls

I made these for a football party this week, and I just had to share the recipe! They were easy to make, delicious, and a perfect bite-sized appetizer. 




4. The Black List 

John and I just started watching The Black List on Netflix, and ohmygosh, we're hooked!  It's so good, and James Spader is such a phenomenal actor.  He was made for this role.


Also, we are getting really excited about the return of "The Mindy Project", and of course, "Scandal"!






5. Fall Fashion Faves

Now that we're finally seeing some cooler temperatures, I'm getting my closet all fall-ready.  A few of my favorite items have been brought out, and moved to the front, and I'm so darn excited!  

Some of my "MVP's" of the season include: 

John gave me these for Christmas last year, and I am in LOOOOVE. Cannot wait to pair them with skinny jeans, wool jackets, and knit dresses with thick tights.  







Plaid Plaid Plaid
Yep, it's my favorite!  I'm been wearing the ones below on repeat already. 






These are some of my favorite pants - I own them in several colors and love them for fall!  They are so flattering and forgiving, and look perfect with flats, heels, or tucked into boots.  
(And they are $15!)




Faux Fur Vest
I just love a good faux fur vest - and I seem to pair mine with just about everything!  Love these two below especially :)  
I'll never forget the first time I wore mine around my 5 year old niece, and she asked me if I was "wearing a wolf"?

And my last random Thought for Thursday....

Babies in Pajamas are just about the cutest things ever.




Hope you're having a great day!

I've been buying a bunch of toys for Miller from consignment shops lately- they're $8 instead of $30 which I will take any day since he's over them so fast! I love the big consignment sales too. I'm waiting for the big one in spring near me. I love that your niece asked if you were wearing a wolf!! Hysterical! I'm loving that F21 faux fur vest, might need to add that to my fall wishlist.
