Apple Picking

This past weekend my in-laws visited and my husband and I took them to go apple picking! It was a lot of fun!  Although, I thought the farm we were going to was u-pick, but instead they had all the apples already picked in bins.  Oh well, the apples were still YUMMY and we had the best fresh pressed apple juice and an amazing apple cider donut.  After the apple picking, we went home and baked a homemade apple pie! You can get the recipe HERE, it really is the best apple pie ever.

So the pie top crust ripped a little bit… oh well… it still tastes good!

Mackenzie Child’s Christmas
We got the MK Christmas catalog in the mail this week and I had so much fun flipping through it.  Here are a few things I am thinking about…
I like these Christmas candles, aren’t they fun??

 I like this chef pig ornament... for *years* in my bedroom as a kid I had a little pig animal that sat in a doll’s high chair and wore a chef’s hat (a Halloween costume from one year) and this pig totally reminds me of my childhood! But WHYYYY are the ornaments so expensive??

In fact, they had this cute little piggy ornament wearing MK boots which I loved but I didn’t buy it because it was too expensive.  Now I’m kicking myself that I didn’t get it. I have an eternal search on eBay for it but alas, no luck.

I will most likely get this JOY banner. I think it is really really cute. 

Everyday I’m Puzzling (get it, like the song?)
Had fun putting together this 1000 piece puzzle this weekend! Do you like to puzzle?  Doing puzzles is something we tend to do in the Fall and Winter when it starts to get cold out and when it’s dark by 6pm.  I realized I really like the Americana scene puzzles… each little area of the puzzle has a little scene you can work on which is fun. I bought a lot off of eBay… I swear, eBay is like the best place to shop. Mom always said, “Never Pay Retail”.  The only downside of buying puzzles off of eBay… pieces *may* be missing. Oh well! I guess that’s what you get a bargain!

Fall/Winter Fashion

Here are some things that are on my fashion wish-list, although to be honest it is still in the 80s here! I think a cape would be super fun to wear this Winter! Like the one below… 

I ‘ve had my eye on a Barbour coat for quite some time, but since it hasn’t rained here in like 5 months I can’t really see myself getting a raincoat. Although, El Nino is supposed to come and drop a bunch of rain so maybe I will need a new rain coat.

And, not that I need any more shoes, but I love the LL Bean boots.  If I still lived in the NW I would have these already… but since I don’t, I will just stare at them instead. *contains affiliate links below

    Angelina, your Friday faves are great. The apple pie looks delicious. Of course, the McK-C pieces make me smile, especially that chef pig. I remembered seeing him recently, so went to look. Neiman Marcus has him available on their web site. He is pricy, but totally adorable! I hope you get him for your tree.
    Have a great weekend.
