Friday Faves

Two words:  Happy Friday!!  'Nuff said about that...The weekend is upon us and I couldn't be more excited.  Don't I say that every Friday?  I don't care if I do...I think we all feel that way, so I'm not ashamed :)

Well, folks, it's time for another edition of "Five on Friday" with Darci and a few other amazing gals.  Here's what I'm favoring at the moment:

{One.}
Is it Fall yet??  It seriously feels like it around these parts lately with temps only reaching the upper 60's yesterday.  It's times like these when all I can think about is everything fall scented and flavored: pumpkin, cozy vanillas and cinnamon apple or cranberry...yummy.  I seriously had to use restraint when in Bath and Body Works the other day.  I'm pretty sure I could have walked out with enough fall scented soaps, candles and lotions to last me until next year.  I just can't help myself!!

{Two.}
Have you ever wondered what sweet heaven tastes like?  This.  This right here, would be a pretty close representation as to what glorious drops of heaven taste like.  Caramel Crispix.  It is beyond simple to whip up, and utterly out of this world divine.  I can't stop eating it.  If you haven't noticed, I'm kinda addicted to my sweets, so when I find something that blows my socks off, I just have to share...soooo, I'm sharing this one with y'all.  It is that good.  Recipe found here. 

{Three.}
So I stumbled across this little number while perusing Pinterest the other day and I'm OBSESSED with this pink puffer vest!!  I'm also digging the layering of gingham with it, but that vest.  Unbelievable.  Problem is, the picture doesn't link to anything, so I can't find out where this vest is from.  If y'all could point me in the right direction, I would be forever grateful.  My closet needs this like yesterday. #umthankyouverymuch

{Four.}
If you didn't already know, I'm a born and raised Nebraska girl, which means I am a die hard Husker fan.  I mean, you can't live in this state and not like the Huskers.  It's all we have in this great state, otherwise known as "the good life."  So come Saturdays in two weeks, not a single Nebraskan won't be donning their red and white attire.  But how cute are these personalized little numbers?  I like to add a new Husker piece to my wardrobe every season, so I might just need to add that Nebraska State hoodie to my closet this year...

{Five.}
Now I know that we celebrated our five year anniversary nearly two months ago, already, but I stumbled upon this guy on Etsy the other day when searching for wedding gifts for my little sis.  How awesome would this be to give to a couple on their anniversary, or even to your spouse?  I'm thinking landmark anniversaries would be perfect for this...and add to them as the years go on.  If it's personalized, I think it means a lot more, so I'm definitely sold on this guy!

Well that's all for today my loves.  I hope you have a fantastic weekend!THE GOOD LIFE BLOG
Until next time...

    1. Love it!! I am obsessed over any and all things personalized, so I'm definitely going to be snagging a few of these for my parents' 30th anniversary and my in-laws' 40th anniversaries coming up! Plus, if one just happens to fall into my cart for myself, I'm not gonna be too upset about it! haha!

  5. Hi Jenna! Just discovered your blog via Holly this morning and love that you are a new blogger as well too! I just started blogging back in June and am having a blast. And I just got a blog makeover myself, so it's always exciting when you see it for the first time. Love that you are obsessed with all the B&B fall scents. It just got into the lower 80's and overcast in SC for the first time in awhile and I was immediately pumped to go buy everything pumpkin/cinnamon smelling. Have a great Friday!

  7. I think the vest is from J. Crew last season, but I'm not sure. It just looks similar to one I saw there! I have tried my best to stay away from B&BW because I just know I will want all the yummy smelling fall things if I go in there!

  8. I'm getting excited for fall and Halloween too!! I'm not sure why, it must be the cool temps. Sadly, I live in Nebraska, but I'm not a football fan. :( Please don't hate me!! But I really think I MUST have that hoodie!! Super cute!!!

  10. First I want some Warm Vanilla B&BW scents. Second my brother's girlfriend is a Nebraska girl. Her family moved to Illinois when she was young and so all the gifts we get are all Nebraska. She would so love that hoodie.. her birthday is coming up where do I find one of those. The anniversayr thing is oober cute. I think doing them on milestone anniversaries are perfect.
