Happy Friday Friends! Another week has come and gone. Today the kids are off from school, so it’ll be a nice change of pace. I can’t believe how quickly October is moving along. Two of my kids still need to decide on their Halloween costumes. Have you kids chosen their costumes yet? Anyway, as usual, I am sharing some favorites in home, style and family.

One // Quilted Fall Coat
Every since I spotted this Z Supply coat in the Evereve catalog, I have wanted it. The last time I was in Evereve, I tried on the coat and it was too boxy on me. I still loved the style but just not the fit.
So, I was so excited when I spotted almost the exact same coat at Target but a much better fitted jacket!
This fall quilted coat is a total steal and it is so cute. It is the perfect layer for cooler Fall jackets.
Two // Halloween Pillow Covers
Last weekend, I updated our kitchen chalkboard area with some new writing and a cute Halloween pillow cover. I came across the shop All The Pillows and am obsessed with all of their affordable pillow covers.
Shop All The Pillows sent me a few pillow covers to try out and I just love the Halloween designs. I got bot the Jack o Lantern pillow cover and the Orange Check Cover.
It is so much better to get seasonal pillow covers instead of actual pillows because they are a lot easier to store. Plus, you can easily wash the pillow covers and store for the next season. You can check out the entire collection of All the Pillows!
Three // Halloween Chicken Noodle Soup
My friend Tiffany shared the cutest Halloween twist on Chicken Noodle Soup! Yesterday, I happened to have some Halloween pasta (I always pick up a few packages when I see it out). So, I made my usual Chicken Noodle Soup recipe with Halloween Pasta.
I love her recipe because she suggests cooking the pasta separate from the soup. Then you scoop some of the noodles in the bowl and pour over the broth. I will not make this soup any other way now!
Simple holiday meal ideas are the best! This meal would be fun to make before Trick-or-Treating!
Four //Teen Gift Ideas
It is not too early to get a start on Holiday Shopping! Prime Day is next week, so there are sure to be some good deals. On Wednesday, I shared the first gift guide of the season. My daughter helped me to create a Beauty Gift Guide for Teen Girls!

My daughter and I have started a lot of traditions the last six months including weekly manicure at home dates, watching Gilmore Girls and a lot of Target runs! It is nice to have the time together especially with a teenager (who is pulled in a lot of directions!). This week my daughter and I teamed up to put together a Holiday Gift Guide for Teen Girls. (And maybe moms too—as there are a lot of gifts on this list I would like!) head over to the blog to check out the holiday guide! It is not too early to get a start on Christmas shopping this year. 🎄🎁 . . . #motherdaughter #raisinggirls #raisingstrongwomen #familytradition #thisis13 #parentingteens #motherdaughterduo #giftguide #christmasshopping #giftideasforher #giftideasforkids #christmascountdown #busymomlife #lifeasmom #holidaygifts #shoppingguide #christmaslist #clevelandohio #midwestblogger

Five // Prime Day Sales
As I mentioned, Prime Day is next week on October 13th-14th. Normally, Prime Day is in the summer, but with everything going on this year it was pushed back until now. The timing works out as it is great to start thinking about Christmas shopping!
I will be updating this Prime Day Deals page, so check back on Monday and Tuesday for the best Prime Day Deals!
Friday Wrap Up
Well, that wraps up this week’s Friday Favorites! We are looking forward to this long weekend. I’ll be back on Monday with a review on two of my favorite kitchen appliances. Then, on Tuesday I will be sharing the best Amazon Prime 2020 Deals!!
