Friday Favorites and Happenings

We survived another week and another month. August flew by for me, but it usually does. We just always have a lot going on. Plus we usually try to squeeze in as many beach days as possible before Fall hits and the weather changes.

Onto Friday Favorites and Happenings.

ONE. I forgot to mention that a couple weeks ago, I was shopping in town and found Birkenstock's on sale. That NEVER happens, so I grabbed a pair. I got ones with a soft footbed because I hate breaking shoes. Especially Birkenstocks. These ones are so cute too. I have been wearing them pretty much daily if I can get away with it.

Rory said he can't wait until Winter when I wear these with socks. UMMMM nope. That is not happening. First, who wears sandals during the winter? And second, why would anyone wear sandals with socks. That is a big no no. Do you wear sandals with socks?

TWO. Last week, Bri talked about getting some dark chocolate coconut mini bars at Costco and how much her husband and one of her kids loved them. Since I was already planning on going to Costco, I thought I would try them out for myself. I LOVE Mounds bars and anything coconut, so these were a must.

Verdict? They are amazing. I have been snacking on them all week and need to get another two bags as back up just in case Costco stops selling them. I put them in the fridge and it is a nice little treat.

THREE. Recently, I went to Total Wine (a warehouse liquor store) and bought some wine for myself and my parents. My dad asked me to get some of my favorite bottles of wine and some new ones that I thought he might like. 

When I was there, I grabbed him many bottles and one of them was my go-to favorite Meiomi. It is a Pinot Noir that my bestie Nathalie introduced me to. I LOVE this wine. It is reasonably priced (around $16 a bottle), easy to drink, crowd pleasing, great during any season and pairs well with most foods. If you can find this wine around where you live, try it. And no this isn't sponsored. I just love the wine.

FOUR. I got this tank recently online and it is amazing. It has a crop feel to it, BUT it is still long enough to tough the top of my mid rise jeans. Yes, I tried on jeans recently and thank goodness they still fit. Anyways, I got this on sale for 30% off because why pay full price. It is a great basic and I plan to wear it in the Fall with cardigans.

FIVE. Weekly funnies.







Have a great weekend. I am linking up with A Little Bit of Everything and Becky.

    1. Rory is not on it with his fashion if he thinks sandals and socks are ok. Nope. The muting themselves is just too good. I buy gas there all the time, but I have gone in a few times and these bars are worth the trip. Have a great weekend.

    1. See...I am not the only one who feels that strongly about it either. I don't think it looks good at all. Big fashion no no. I LOVE mounds bars too, and these are pretty amazing and less sugar too, so that is a win. Nadine did say that you can order them directly online. these are worth it!
