Friday Favorites: Hello November!

Happy Friday, everyone! Typically, I do a pretty go job of keeping track of my favorites during the week. I keep a little post it note in my planner and every time something great happens, I write it down. This makes writing this post on Fridays so much easier! Well guess what!? Yesterday, I checked my planner and my post-it was blank! How do the weeks go by so fast? Here are my favorite things from this week...

1. This weekend, I am going to a Turtle Fur sale so I've been browsing through Turtle Fur's website all week long. I can't show up to a sale without being well versed in their products, right!? Now, I am totally well versed in all things Turtle Fur and I am so in love with this hat! It comes in a few different colors and I am really hoping to find one at the sale! I just know this hat would be a favorite of mine all winter long!

2. Did you see these cutest paintings on Tuesday!? My students did these paintings for Halloween and they turned out so perfect! I have loved having them up in my classroom all week long - they are so festive! I will be taking them down today and tucking them away in their portfolios. As bummed as I am to take down Halloween, I am already anticipating how we will decorate our classroom next week!

3. Speaking of my students... I only have 15 days left with them. 15 days school days left until my internship is over. They have become the biggest part of my days and I am really dreading leaving them. I am looking for little gifts to give them when I leave and I would love your suggestions!

4. Is there such thing as too many Halloween cookies? I made 120 Halloween on Saturday afternoon and then I needed a nap! I wish I was kidding, but I was tired after rolling out and decorating all of these cookies! I made these Halloween cookies and then packed them up and gave some to just about everyone I know! I gave so many away and guess what!? There are still about 15 on my counter! I make these exact same cookies every year (Because I love them that much!) and I talked all about it last year! You can read all about HERE.
5. Last year, I shared a recipe for these fabulous pumpkin spice cookies with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and they have been on my mind all week long! I totally intend of milking the rest of this fall for all it's worth and I think these cookies will be part of that! It's always a struggle to decide whether to try a new recipe (so I can blog a new recipe) or to make a recipe that I know and love (but can't blog because I already have!). This will be a recipe that I make over and over again even though it's already been posted on my blog! You can find the recipe HERE.
