Friday Five

TGIF!!  Anyone have fun plans for the weekend? We were supposed to go get pumpkins last weekend but we got rained out so our plan is to go this weekend. It looks like the weather should work out for us so I'm excited. I'm also hoping to catch up on some sleep because someone (who gets a new tooth every other freaking week) did not do much sleeping this week which means neither did I.  

Linking up to share five things on this Friday!

1. Fall Candle

I picked up this candle at Homegoods last week and love it! It smells wonderful and fills the house but isn't too overwhelming.  It's the perfect fall scent.  

I ordered this shirt last week when J.Crew was having their 50% off with free shipping birthday sale so I got it for $37.50 down from $75!  I'm planning to wear it for Thanksgiving and other various events I have post baby that require me to be dressed up. It arrived yesterday and I love it!  (I even tried to see if I could squeeze into it now and that's a NO)

3. DIY Burlap Wreath

 A few of you requested pictures of my DIY burlap wreath and here it is!  It isn't perfect and I just realized the right side could use some fluffing but it works for me.  I wanted to keep the decor simple so I could easily switch it out for Christmas and other times of the year.  If you're looking to make one I used this tutorial here 

4. Baby Name
So we are finally 98% sure about baby boy's name and it's a completely new one that we haven't even considered once these past 9 months.   It is one we considered for Miller but eventually changed our mines on.  It's a family name too which I didn't think we were going to do. Kyle's the one who suggested it and it really feels right, now we both just have to decide if it's "the one".

5. New Handbag

I finally picked my new handbag! Here she is: 

I ended up going with the Gigi New York Teddie Tote in Stone and I love it!  It's nice and roomy so I will be able to fit a lot.  I was about to go with the Cuyana tote thanks to Ally but I realized that I really needed a lined bag with pockets right now since I'm toting around baby stuff so I had to be realistic.  It's still on my wishlist for the future though :).  I was able to get it during the Gigi New York friends and family sale last week for 25% off! If you missed it they carry it at Saks and they are currently having their Friends and family sale with the code FRNFAM. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

  1. Love the bag!!! Yes I love my Cuyana tote like it's my child but without a lining it would be difficult to store cups with liquid and kid stuff! Can't wait to find out what Baby boy name is!!

  2. LOVE that bag! That was on my wish list last Christmas! I think you will love it and it looks perfect for all seasons!!!! I'm dying to know what name you picked out but either way it will be perfect! How are you feeling??? I know you are ahead of me!

  4. Ack!!! I'm so so jealous of your new bag!!!! It's gorgeous!! Get some sleep this wekeend! And some pumpkins ;).

  5. ohhh i LOVE your bag! i was thinking about getting something similar for a baby bag -- and even considering the cuyuna bag -- good point about lining being important! and HOORAY for deciding on your baby name! i cant wait to hear what it is. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  6. I LOVE my Gigi NY Teddie. The leather is so soft and the bag is a great size. I'm hoping to use it is a baby bag when baby gets here in May. Been using it for just about everything else in the mean time :)

  7. Love that JCrew factory top--did it run large or small? So hard to tell with their stuff!

    1. I would say it runs large- usually the factory stuff does. Hope that helps!

  8. Oh that bag is beautiful! Thanks for the heads up on the candles at Home Goods. I'm always on the lookout for good candles!!

  9. Ohh your new handbag is gorgeous!! And loving that J Crew top!

  10. Love the color of your new bag. You'll get so much use out of it! I need to get a more festive candle or else I'm going to start burning the Yankle 'Mistletoe" hah. Have a great weekend and I LOVE how your wreath turned out :)

  11. Um, YESSS on that new Gigi bag, I love it! You made the perfect decision!

  12. I love to use holiday candles but my allergies flare up often when I burn them so they usually just look pretty instead! The purse you chose is gorgeous and I'm sure you'll love it! Glad you were able to take advantage of the sale! I saw a woman walking yesterday wearing that exact same blouse and it looked amazing on. I really wish I'd grabbed one last week during the sale! Have a great weekend! (and good luck with the teething...)

  13. Pumpkin spice anything is a-okay with me! And, that Gigi NY bag is adorable! I have seen them everywhere recently, and I'm thinking that I need to add one to my Christmas list!

  14. I LOVE that bag! I've never heard of those bags before- it's always great to find somewhere new to shop around. Thanks for sharing!

  15. Love your GIGI bag! Hope y'all had a fun weekend and had success at the pumpkin patch! That candle looks amazing - I've been loving burning my Leaves one from BBW :) XOXO
