Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!

Guess what? Only 4 weeks until Thanksgiving! 

Actually less, because 4 weeks from today, I will be out and about with the madness that's also known as Black Friday Shopping... Zack actually spearheaded our tradition, but that's a story for another day :)

Okay, now back to my regular Friday Post! I'm talking favorites, and I have a full heart to share this week :)

Of course, I can't forget to mention that I am linking up with my favorite bloggers: AndreaErika & Narci.


Fall Colors. The leaves have really hit their peak here in WNC. While I don't think this year is optimal color, I still amazed at how gorgeous Fall is in the mountains.

Boots are always a favorite! As in, I need-to-exercise-some self-control-favorite. That being said, my brown boots have seen better days, & I need help deciding on a new pair! 
Here are the ones I'm contemplating.

Sam Edelman 'Penny' Boot • $149.90
Merona® Kasia Leather Riding Boot  • $89.99
Lucky Brand 'Heloisse' Boot • $139.90
 Steve Madden  Intyce Riding Boot • $149
Sam Edelman Penny Boots Whiskey  • $150

Any input is definitely appreciated!


I saw a full rainbow yesterday! It was a beautiful favorite! Yesterday was hard, my therapy session didn't go as planned, I was eating myself up in self-doubt, and I walked out and saw this beautiful reminder of God's promise.

It has become a crazy popular tourist destination, but I call it home.
On Saturday, Zack's family, Zack & I played tourist and took a trolley around for a historic (&ghost) tour of Asheville. The guide was awesome! He did such a great job & we got to see all the sights such as the Pink Lady at the Grove Park Inn, & the Thomas Wolfe house.

On Tuesday, we had advising day! It's a new concept to me. but I am fully on board. My 8-5 day became a one hour session @ 11! #ptl!
So Tuesday, I got some extra work done, and relaxed with a candle & netflix :)
I snapped a picture because my little dish from target is a new favorite, plus leaves is my new favorite Fall candle :)

Do you have any of the boots on my wishlist? If so, what do you like/dislike about them?


  1. Love that rainbow, and what a great reminder that in our darkest days, God's got us. :) Love my Yankee candles!

  2. Those fall pictures are just fabulous!! We are in NYC and the trees are just changing now and it is amazing!

  3. Seattle has a ghost tour I really wanted to go on but never did! I love learning about hauntings and stuff like that.

  4. Beautiful pictures! I also love the different colors this time of year! I haven't tried any of those boots but I like the Merona ones the best. Have you ever checked out Charlotte Russe? They have such cute boots & I've had pretty good luck with them. Have a good weekend!

    1. I haven't, I'll have to keep that in mind when I'm at the mall next time :)

  5. I love the Sam Edelman boots but if you don't own a pair of Frye boots, then I highly suggest in investing in a pair!!! They will be your favorite purchase ever! I normally don't spend that kind of money on shoes but they really are an investment so it makes me feel better knowing that I can still wear them 10-15 years from now!

    1. I don't own a pair of fryes, but they are classics. I may have to try some on in person soon! :) Thanks for the tip!
