New Fall Fashion Finds

Now that fall is in full swing, stores are adding more great items that are perfect for this season!  I'm loving all these pieces but especially those leggings, plaid scarf & bell sleeve top.  All would be great for me for work or play!  What do you think?

Friday Favorites

So excited it's officially fall :)!!!  Hope everyone has fun plans for the weekend!  I'm counting down the hours until 5.  Before we head into the weekend, let's talk some Friday Favorites!

My sweet friend Ashley started a new embroidery business, Premium Pineapple Embroidery!  Be sure to go follow her account & be ready to order some super cute monogrammed items.  Who doesn't love a monogram?!

It may still be pretty hot in Kentucky but I'm beyond ready for fall fashion!!

Well actually, this will be me on November 26th or 27th because November 25th is reserved for Christmas decorating :)  I'm so excited to see the new Gilmore Girls!!

New Yankee Candles are a perfect way to kick off fall! 

Have you watched any of my YouTube videos yet?  Making those to share with you all is definitely a favorite!!

How to Make a Fall Centerpiece [VLOG]

I love making quick & easy centerpieces for each season as a cute way to add a little décor to our dining room table.  Check out my easy fall DIY centerpiece & be sure to let me know what you think!  (I'll be posting how to put together a fall table soon!)

Also, I'm working on filming more vlogs.  Do you all like them?  Any content you would like to see me cover?

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!! I'm so excited the weekend is here :)  (as always!)  Hope everyone has lots of fun plans for the weekend ahead! 

Before we start the weekend, I have a few favorites to share with you!

Nordstrom is having a great sale right now.  I personally own the hat & tunic and love both!  I think I have 5 or 6 of those tunics because they're perfect for work or play!  All the other items would be perfect to buy yourself now or to buy now & save for Christmas gifts!

So this week I started something new I've been wanting to do for a long time, a YouTube Channel!!  Please subscribe, let me know what you think and send any content suggestions my way!  I'm really trying to grow this so any support is greatly appreciated!

I love BeautyCounter!!  It is absolutely the best skincare line I've ever used and it is safe to use which makes it even better.  Target is currently carrying some items for a limited time so be sure to check those out online or in store or if you want to order the full size products do so on my friend Carley's site.

If you were drooling over these Vince Camuto Feina booties in the NSale, you need to check out this much cheaper option from Target.  The only difference is they don't have the slit at the top in the front and there is a zipper on the side.  I can't tell that big of a difference honestly (other than the price!).  $50 instead of $160 is definitely a steal!  I love the Feina booties but we're trying to pay off some things so I just can't justify the extra $110!  Be sure to check these out.  So cute!

I have started doing Weight Watchers again (if you want to follow along I post all my workouts/meals on Instagram at @thefitpeacock).  I still have more I want to lose & this program really worked for me so I'm going to do it again!  One of the most important things for me when trying to lose weight is staying hydrated.  These Brita water bottles are my favorite!!  I love that they can filter my water and it helps me keep track of how many ounces of water I'm drinking.

Also, I'm selling this blardigan in a S/M. It's the pinkish/purple color. Email me at if you're interested in buying it.

Hobby Lobby Fall Finds

When it comes to holiday décor, Hobby Lobby is my favorite go-to place!  I love the Christian base of their business and they have the cutest stuff.  I typically pick up a few things each holiday to add to our collection and they more often than not come from here.

We are a football loving household so we scooped up one of those pumpkins last year!  I added the fall sign, pumpkin bowl & foam pumpkin mix to our collection this year.  I'm still debating on the thanks sign because I think it would be perfect in our dining room. 

All Fall & Christmas items are already 40% off so it's a great time to scoop up some new décor for the rest of the year!

Do you love Hobby Lobby?  What are some items you're adding to your collection for fall this year?!

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday!! This weekend went by way too fast!  

Friday, I went to dinner and Pride & Prejudice at our local theatre with my stepmom & grandmother.  So much fun!! There can never be enough Mr. Darcy :)

So good!!

Saturday, we did a lot of relaxing and then ran a few errands.  We stopped by Yankee Candle for some new fall candles :)  Love when our house smells (and now looks) ready for fall!

Date night Saturday night to see Sully.  We highly recommend this movie!! It was SO good.  

Sunday was full of church & lunch to celebrate my brother's birthday :)

Followed by football & lots of relaxing on the couch!  We like to keep our Sunday nights lazy with an at home dinner & relaxing before the week starts.  We were bummed by the Cowboys loss but are still loving that it's football season :)

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!  It feels more like fall outside here today and I'm loving it!

Also, I've joined YouTube!  I'm excited to share so much more of how I decorate, cook our favorite recipes, projects I'm working on, shopping finds & so much more!  I have SO much to learn on filming, creating these videos and developing content so if you have a channel please send me any tips (for example how to change the still screen below of that awful face I'm making lol). If you are a reader let me know what kinds of topics/videos you would like to see & please subscribe!!  I'm doing this to share more of me and our life with you so I want to know what you want to see or hear about!
