Hi Friends! Happy Friday! Hope you had a great week. We have had a bunch of rain all week. I am hoping it clears up so we can take a family hike (while it is so pretty out). It would sure be a muddy walk. Anyway, I am hopping on to share some favorites of the week in home, style and family.

Latest Target Clothing Finds

It might be hard to believe that I have never been much of a Target clothing shopper since I have been finding a lot of fall clothes there. But, truly Target is not one of my go-to stores for clothing. Usually I find one or two things from there online each season. (I rarely check out the clothing in person at Target). But this year, Target has the BEST fall clothes. So many great finds especially dupes of more expensive, similar clothing.

A few weeks ago I got this new fall jacket and I still LOVE it.

This week, I picked up another new favorite item. I found this cozy CHEERS sweatshirt. This top will be fun for the holidays especially those comfy days at home. It is super soft on the outside and is a nice thinner sweatshirt.

I’ll be wearing a lot more comfy holiday clothes than anything dressy this holiday season. This  Cheers sweatshirt might even be my New Year’s Eve outfit:)

Buffalo Check Table Linens

I’ve been looking at the home decor stores from holiday decorating ideas. It is never too early and once Halloween is over, I think I will be full steam ahead with Thanksgiving and Christmas. After many years of holiday decorating, I have accumulated a lot of decor.

So nowadays, I look for classic holiday pieces that can be used all year long. My buffalo check napkins table linens are my favorite all year round home decor accents. Buffalo check looks so good at the holidays but this pattern never goes out of style.

We use our buffalo check cloth napkins every single day. A lot less expensive than paper napkins and more eco friendly!  I throw the napkins in the laundry with our kitchen towels every other day.

Throughout the year, I either have our buffalo check place mats or our buffalo check runner on the dining room table. Now is the time to stock up on some of these classic pieces before the holiday season.

Comfortable and Stylish Masks

I wanted to share my friend’s new mask company Masks X Meg. She is a local friend who is so gifted in sewing. I reached out to her to make my son a Spider Man mask to go with his Halloween costume. He says it is is favorite mask because it is easy to talk with and is breathable.

She has beautiful patterns including the fabrics my daughter and I picked out.

You can also personalize your mask with beaded initials, which is great for keeping track of your own mask!

While we still have a few more weeks until November, I wanted to share the November Gratitude Calendar. If you are looking for a meaningful and fun Thanksgiving tradition, you can download the 30 Days of Gratitude Activities Calendar.

Every weekend I say I want to get the family on a hike, but then the weekend gets away from us. This weekend, I am really hoping we do it!

Gifts for Mom on Etsy

Have you started your holiday shopping? After shopping on Prime Day, I have started to get motivated to do more Christmas shopping. I saw a news story talking about expected shipping delays this holiday season. So, I am hoping to finish up shopping sooner than later!

On Tuesday, I rounded up 10 Gifts for Mom on Etsy! Some of my favorite shops include:

These personalized beaded bracelets.

Also these initial bracelet key chains are pretty and functional!

You can check out the entire Etsy Gift Ideas post here. There are a lot of ideas for every price range.
