friday favorites

I've been forcing fall around here for what seems like months, so now with Thanksgiving less than a week away, it finally feels like everything is falling into place (no pun intended). It's finally cooled down enough to layer on sweaters and scarves and it seems as though everyone is catching up with my holiday spirit. Zach and I are relaxing in Palm Springs celebrating our anniversary and I can't help but dream about Thanksgiving. Pumpkin spiked everything, bourbon cocktails and hopefully a new yummy appetizer or two to compliment our staple family recipes.

In the spirit of fall, here are my favorites of the week:
  1. Pumpkin Flan.
  2. Winter Spiced Old Fashioned.
  3. Beautiful assortment of cheese.
  4. So many great log DIY's out there, loving this one.
  5. Black Pepper and Lemon Asiago Dip.
Enjoy your weekend! 


  1. All of these look beautiful! Enjoy your time at Palm Springs!
