Friday Favorites: Fall Recipe, Designer Sale and Kids’ Book of Paper Love Giveaway

Happy Friday! This week went by quickly as I was out of town earlier in the week. Tomorrow is my youngest son’s 7th birthday! I can hardly believe it. I’m looking forward to a weekend of celebrations with the birthday boy.

Anyway, as usual I am sharing some Friday Favorites. A few things in the way of home, style and family! Be sure to stick around to the end of the post for a FUN & CRAFTY giveaway! Have a great weekend!

ONE| Autumn Sausage and Veggie Sheet Pan Dinner

I’ve talked about sheet pan dinners before because I love how easy and simple they are to throw together.

I tried out a new recipe this week from Cooking Classy and it was SO GOOD! These kind of dinners are really fool proof because you can mix and match the ingredients with what you have on hand!

While my kids aren’t big veggie eaters they actually all loved how this turned out.

The sausage was nice and crispy. My youngest actually asked for seconds! Win!

TWO| Tween Bedroom Update

On Wednesday, I shared a recap of my shopping trip with my mom. One of my FAVORITE finds was a new desk and chair for my daughter. She absolutely loves it!

Teen Girl Desk

She wanted wanted a desk with a lot of surface space and that had decent storage.

This desk has all that plus it has a “smart” feature where she can plug in her electronics.

Every single moment she has been home she has been at her desk working on homework or art!

It really pays to wait for what you want. We have been looking for the perfect desk for her room for the last year and we FINALLY found it.
