Yo yo yo. It’s Friday!!!!

I am linking up with my friend Erika to bring you my favorites from this week.

first favorite:

Bottega Parmesan Spread

Bottega Parmesan Spread

Last week when we were in Napa we dined at one of our favorite restaurants called Bottega. While waiting for our entrèes to arrive, we enjoyed a crusty loaf of bread topped with this AMAZING parmesan spread. When we asked what it was made of the waiter kindly wrote down the recipe for us…which I shared on my blog on Monday. It is an INCREDIBLE recipe and is a definite favorite this week. I hope you will try it!

Us TAOLB girls always LOVE new party dresses to help us make our round of Christmas parties in style, but what about a fantastic pair of statement pants?

For the first time ever, I partnered with my friend Emily McClure to bring you a Christmas card style guide. For us moms, the Christmas card outfit is one of the most daunting of the year.

It doesn’t have to be so difficult, check out and favorite my Christmas Card Style Guide to help with your outfit selections.

fourth favorite:

Have y’all ever tried Boom Chicka Pop?

Well I hadn’t. Until Tuesday.

I see it everytime I’m at the store, but don’t typically buy already popped popcorn. This trip to Market Street was different when a vignette of “Christmas-themed” food greeted me as I entered. What can I say? In a moment of Christmas excitement fueled weakness I grabbed a bag…

Y’all its amazing!! I’m serious, the white chocolate peppermint flavor is addictive! And only 140 calories for 1 1/4 cups. I think this will be a great little treat when I want something sweet this season!

fifth favorite:

My favorite pumpkin soup bowls are marked down guys! I pull these down from the top shelf every fall. You’ve seen me use them at The Witch’s Brunch, Thanksgiving Brunch and stay tuned for tomorrow for my 2016 Thanksgiving Tablescape when I bring them out again.

Also these gorgeous fall leaf placemats are on sale! I bought them last fall for my Thanksgiving Table 2015 and received so many comments from you about them. Well, if you didn’t get them then, now is your chance to get them at a bargain! There are tons other fantastic pieces on clearance right now at Pier 1, like these napkins, these napkins and these plates . Head over to Pier 1 and find some of your favorites!

Happy weekend friends. I’m headed to Miami as we speak! Follow me on Instagram to see all the shenanigans.
