A Few of My Favorite Things

I am jumping on the blog bandwagon for

Favorite things Friday!

Holiday shopping is starting to creep in to my thoughts.  The Holiday Mart is this weekend in Kansas City and a friend invited me to her Holiday Shopping Party.

My Fav kind of party!  You know the ones.  Your friend throws a party and invites a variety of home-based businesses, you drink wine, eat food and a selling frenzy ensues!  I love it!  I get the frenzy, and the wine and the food.  Here is the line up my friend has so far!

NuanceStyleHouse / ThirtyOne / Stella and Dot / Jamberry Nails / Scentsy / BloomLily Soap Co / G’s Crafty / Uncommonly Personal / TayCreativeWays / Sanctuary Aesthetics / 360o Chocolates

Speaking of frenzy, I stepped away from work long enough yesterday to grab a couple Royals tshirts for the World Series.  Just a quick trip…right down the road..to grab a few tshirts.  I just needed five (5), one for each of our clients and then Justin and I.

I only had a couple of hours before a meeting.

OoooH. MY. LANDS!

It was like Black Friday out there!  I went to Rally House and Dick’s Sporting Goods and the stores were packed and there was crazy, excited energy in the air.  I got caught up in it!

I got so excited at Dick’s, that even when they didn’t have any shirts left in the sizes I needed, I just starting buying blue stuff!

And then when I was in the dressing room trying on my blue stuff, there was a t-shirt in the size I needed laying in the dressing room, so I bought that and then when I was at the register, I spotted a pile of sweatshirts so I asked the lady to check the sizes and there was a sweatshirt in my size SO I BOUGHT THAT too!!  It was hysteria I tell ya!

For my Facebook friends, I got a lot of great recommendations for local printers selling Royal’s shirts.  I plan to purchase from these retailers in the future.  I wanted one specific Royals shirt though, “We Own the Pennant” and that’s why I ended up at the big name stores.

Other favorites.

My favorite “everyday” necklaces and pair of earrings are my purchases from Stella & Dot.  The two larger pieces in the middle are a little pricey, but I have gotten so much wear out of them.  They go with everything.

Demi earrings / Piper necklace / Kimberly necklace / Elodie necklace / Interlock heart necklace similar

(Looks like the Interlock Heart necklace is no longer available so I linked to the cross.)

Favorite purse: Miche.  These are so great and, after buying the base, an economical way to have multiple purses.  I am not a big spender when it comes to bags, but I am willing to pay $50-60 once or twice a year on a new shell.

My Favorite everyday shoes. Nurture and Sperry.  When I am not in gym shoes, I am in one of these two pairs of shoes.

Sperry Topsiders / Nurture

Both of these are so old, I couldn’t find a link to either of them!  In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with any style in these two brands!

Favorite Pouch.  I usually carry my Miche Prima bag, which is large.  But INSIDE that bag I carry pouches.  So when I hop out of my car, often times I just grab a pouch to carry around instead of a great big bag.

Gotta Wrap this up!

Justin is giving me the stink eye to get to the gym. 

Happy Friday!  Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my favorite things!
