SIX faves for Saturday!

Happy Saturday!  This morning a Saturday Six is on tap...quite simply because I didn't have my act together yesterday!

My first favorite this week comes care of Erin from Our Little Life!!  She commented that she made the Fall Sangria I posted over at The Blended Blog for a Sunday Football brunch and it was a big hit!!  That just made me so happy this week!!!  YAY!!  Thanks so much Erin.  Do yourself a favor and check out Erin and her sweet family here!

My new sign...Another favorite this week was this!!  
It was hard to fit it in the camera!
Ever since this new shop opened in town in September and I saw this sign there, I've been saying I wanted one.  Well on the day of the Fall Festival, I went in and ordered it!  I am so, so happy with the way it came out!!

My new favorite guy...MY MAILMAN!  It was a huge huge mail week!!  I got lots!!  Like LOTS!  By the third day I, opened the door to him and a stack of boxes and just said "You're gonna hate me!"  He just laughed and said, no way... it was great!  Then said..."I'll see you tomorrow!" HA (I resisted the urge to ask to take his picture for the blog :))

Halloween Detox Group...this week I tried to participate in another challenge group, and failed.  If you follow me on Instagram you may remember that in October I did the 5-day Clean Eating Crockpot Challenge.  This group was along those same lines and another brainchild of Casey at A Little Bit of Cheer.  I wasn't as strict with myself this time around.  I had coffee and wine two days. And I didn't make any of the meals. (the menus were way more food than I consume in a day! HA!) On Halloween, I had made crockpot lasagna, so I had a week of leftovers to eat.  But now that I have the recipes, I can make the meals anytime.  Was hoping to make this coming week my official detox week but it's shaping up not to be!  I did however, drink way more than half my body weight in water everyday (have kept up with that since the last challenge) and got the cardio in!  So even though I failed at this one, it's still a favorite because I like being in the group!  And GO ME!!  I didn't eat one piece of Halloween candy!!
Oh and another favorite came from Casey this week...she declared this dress  her favorite look of the week, at the Lovely Little a la Mode Link up, on Monday!  YAY!!  Thanks so much Casey!!

CMA Awards Girls Night... My mom and two sisters came over for Girls night to watch the CMA's on Wednesday!!  We love our country music!  It was a fun night.  That's also when news of Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani broke.  I don't think this will last, but hey.  I am over following celebs ever since my favorite couple, Ben and Jen, divorced.  LOL

And I'll leave you with this...because it needs to be seen.
Moment of the night at the CMA's.  So happy for Chris Stapleton.  My sister and I saw him, play an acoustic show called Guys with Guitars here in my town 2 years ago!  He is awesome and for the last 17 years been writing for country artists.  So glad he's final getting his due.  He cleaned up at the show!   And this was just incredible!!

Linking up today with  ErikaAndrea, and Narci for Friday Favorites!
