Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!

I know we've all been waiting a long time for Friday to finally roll around (I mean, why can't it be Friday every day?). Friday just naturally puts people in a good mood. Like the Good Samaritan that brought a giant box of donuts to the office this morning. Sugar high for every one!

Since we're all in a good mood, here are some things that are making me particularly happy today:

The Atlanta Falcons. I am not a huge Falcons fan, by any means, but I picked them over the Buccaneers in our office league and was completely happy with that decision this morning. I went to bed last night when the score was 35-0, and they ended up winning it 56-14. Good job boys! Hopefully this means good things for my picks this week!

All of my Fall candles. This isn't the entire collection, either - don't hate! The weather here has been crisp and cool, so that requires good smelling scents like pumpkin, apple, caramel, cinnamon, ginger....yum! Also, slightly off camera is a huge bowl of cashews and candy corn. A Fall candy treat must have. You should try it!

My parents and their amazing thoughtfulness. They just came back from Scotland and sent us a bunch of goodies. I am loving this beautiful scarf. It's a deep purple with thistle print in the lighter purple area. So gorgeous!

Also, they sent me this gorgeous bracelet. The stone is made out of the heather plant. There is a process where the stone makers take the dried heather and reduce it down until it becomes a hard stone. It's beautiful! Here's a link to the company's website with more options and a better description of the process: HeatherGems.

Last, but not least, these two. They also make me happy! Travis is sporting his new hat from the St. Andrews golf course, and Emily is holding her Scottish bear. She also received an adorable little kilt. Can't wait until she fits into it! 

What is making you happy today? Have you been to Scotland? I think I need to add this to my bucket list!
