Friday Favorites – Weekly Inspiration

Welcome to Friday Favorites, a series where we share our favorite decor, design inspiration, fashion finds, TV shows, recipes and more!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of love, laughter, and pie! We have all the kids here plus my oldest’s girlfriend, and it’s been pure heaven. Lots of laughs, wine, board games, and of course, football (watching, not playing 😉 ). Everyone is here through the weekend so my mama heart is so happy! 🙂

And since today is Black Friday, I thought I’d share a few specials with you! Do you shop in person on Black Friday? When I was a kid, we had a tradition of going to the mall on this day every year and I always looked forward to it. Though now I have to say I prefer not to brave the mall. It feels like there is less in the stores these days, and the online deals are better anyway! 

So my plan for today is to get lots of my shopping done (on the couch), listen to Christmas music, and indulge in some more pumpkin cheesecake! 😉

This house is decorated for Christmas so beautifully!


There may be a few more links than usual, but I promise to only share the very best deals, things I truly love, or am wishing for myself!

Pottery Barn has lots of great deals going. How brilliant is this wreath door hanger? It includes the bells! Love it and it’s now 20% off! I’m also eyeing this adorable Happy Holidays doormat (25% off and comes in 2 sizes – something that’s sometimes hard to find), and this stunning quartz catch all tray (I’ve been waiting for it to go on sale and now it’s 25% off!), and these monogrammed marble coasters make the perfect gift and are only about $20 now! 

Anthropologie is another one of my favorite stores, and they’re having 30% off most items, including these gorgeous cheese knives (from the gift guide).

I love this pretty French-inspired gold leaves wreath and it’s now 40% off!  

Also, I just bought this upholstered bed for the new guest room and now it’s 25% less than I paid a few weeks ago. I can say I truly love this bed! It looks way more expensive than it is and now at less than $700 it’s a steal!

Ballard Designs has up to 75% off and I’m eyeing this French-style gold mirror to add to our bedroom, it also includes the tabletop trees you guys have been loving, plus this super cute flocked version (how did I miss this before?)

A few fab Amazon deals I love: these matching dispenser bottles for oil and vinegar are half off and look so cute on a counter, this cozy throw is one of my favorites and is the exact same as the PB one! (plus comes in more colors), we love our Roomba Robot vacuum (35% off and close to what we paid years ago!), and our Dyson stick vacuum is honestly one of my favorite things I’ve ever bought and it’s now over 20% off!



We’ve got a few holiday parties to go to which means I’m of course, planning what to wear. I’m sharing a few amazing specials and deals along with some things I’m loving and/or planning to wear

I’m loving the faux leather pant look and this slim wide-leg pair I just bought is flattering and has 5* ratings! (25% off). Planning to pair them with a sparkly top like this one (a steal!) or this one (50% off) – this would be so cute with jeans, too!

Another outfit possibility is a jumpsuit – love this one (above) and this one is beautiful (and 40% off)! And I’m for sure adding these earrings which are so chic and only $30 now, and this adorable bag (30% off) (love both the silver and the copper!) Pair it with a fab shoe like this sparkly heel or this beautiful jeweled pump (50% off and looks way more expensive than it is)!

And if you’re needing some gorgeous black pants for parties or anything else, these pencil pants look so flattering (I saw them on a fashion blogger this week) and they’re 50% off now! 

Some of my favorite Amazon deals: they also have some amazing deals on clothing, I love my Blondo booties (they’re waterproof, real suede, and half off!), this long sweater coat is similar to the JCrew version and is under $40, my fave casual, comfy sweats are now only $12, and my fave eyeshadow palette is now only $16 in the smaller size (perfect for purse or travel).

Christmas movies, of course! It’s been our tradition for a long time to watch our first Christmas movie tonight, the day after Thanksgiving. Last year we watched The Family Stone, one of my favorites! This year I’m pushing for The Holiday (though I most likely won’t win). My other top one is Love Actually but the kids always vote for Elf, so we’ll see!

On that note, it seems we’re due for a new classic and good holiday movie! I read this interesting article (NYT gifted article) this week and couldn’t agree more, as both Love Actually and Elf came out in 2003 – that’s 20 years ago!



Leftovers! We all have them, right? So I thought I’d share a few favorite recipes that we love. This Leftover Thanksgiving Panini is the perfect turkey sandwich, and this Turkey Chowder with Wild Rice is absolutely delicious!

And this year I’m going to try making this Spiced Cranberry Punch (above) and just use our leftover cranberry sauce instead of making the cranberry syrup! And here are 25 Ways to Use Leftover Cranberry Sauce.



Do you follow photographer Georgianna Lane on Instagram? She takes the most amazing photos! (Her books are gorgeous, too!)

It’s not on sale but this wintry room spray smells soo good, lasts forever, and is perfect for keeping in the bathroom (cough, cough).
