Things I’m Loving Lately 18

Happy Monday friends and happy Thanksgiving week!

The holiday train starts today in my house with company arriving.  Woop! It’s going to be a crazy but great week at the Wunder house.  I hope yours will be the same way.

Let’s talk about more postive, happy things with another edition of Things I’m Loving Lately!

Thinks I’m Loving Lately 18

White Christmas Everything

I try not to jump on the Christmas bandwagon before Thanksgiving, but I found this at the store and could NOT resist.  Barnie’s was the local coffee place in Orlando and their White Christmas Coffee was a staple in my house growing up Florida.  My Mom adored White Christmas coffee, stock piled it and drank it year-round. I was surprised to see it at my store all the way in the mountains and I could not resist!

For you Mom!

All Things Turkey

Yes, I’m a vegetarian… but I’m kind of obsessed with all things TURKEY!  I have tons of adorable turkey decorations specifically for Thanksgiving and I love having them out for my company this week.  My amazing Mother-in-law bought most of them for me and I love them.

I’m officially in search of the best sunsets in the world!  I’m so happy with the way the last Key West sunset photos turned out.  Can that be my hobby…. sunset photo taking?  NOT that I need another hobby 🙂

Tory Burch Purse

You know those Instagram loop giveaways?  Well… I was curious and entered a few.  I almost gave up on winning them, when I got a note on Instagram that I won!!  I could not believe it!  It was a huge prize – a Tory Burch purse, wallet, sunglasses and Nordstom gift card.

I even found out near the anniversary of my Mom’s death.  My Mom was the biggest shopping fan out there and I kind of think she pulled some strings for me to cheer me up. 🙂

I just got it in the mail the other day and can’t wait to use it for future Fashion Friday posts.

Overnight Oats

Ever since I made these Chunky Monkey Overnight Oats, I’ve been on an oats kick!  Can’t get enough!

    I love sunset pictures- especially from my backyard! Santa’s White Christmas, that is a keeper, we had the Barnies and I always bought that for my mom for Christmas. Great memories! Enjoy all that great company this week- and great score on that purse!

    Congrats on winning the purse and other great things, and yes you can photograph sunsets as a hobby:o) Do you have a camera or only use your phone. I do miss Barnies coffee, there was one in the mall I used to work at, and loved getting the White Christmas at Christmas time. Hope you have a wonderful week:o)

    Kind of funny, when the boys were little and we went to Anna Maria Island every year, we started to hear the complaint: “not another sunset”. I took a lot of sunset pix, with and without them. How sad that they got tired of it! Someday they’ll understand…

    I’ve never hear of Barney’s coffee!

    We used to have a Barnie’s in our mall! I loved their White Christmas blend, but I haven’t had it in years! I will have to be on the lookout for this!
