The Friday Files

Hello, dear friends.  Did you have a good week?  All is well here.  I'm proud to say that Millie is 99% potty trained.  I don't want to say 100% because I may jinx it.  

This weekend, our #2 and Chowdah are spending the night.  It is our girl's 28th birthday on Saturday, and we asked her if she wanted us to take her out for a nice dinner.  She said that she would rather have her dear old Dad make dinner.  He couldn't be happier.  He had the menu written within minutes.

But the most excited of all of us is this little girl who loves Chow more than anything.  I can't say the feeling is mutual, but I have high hopes for some bonding moments over the weekend.

First on the docket is this beauty in Maine.

Sweet dreams are guaranteed in this gorgeous bedroom.

One of my favorite designers was at the helm of this gorgeous home in Sista's part of the woods.

Empty nesters had this magnificent manse built for them on the Rhode Island coast.

Have you ever thought of going on the Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet?  

Here's a 30-day meal plan

Two words:

Oh yummmm.

Are you a fan of Mindy Kaling?

She was asked who would be at her dream dinner party?

She only wants one person.

I think that he's a great choice.

Who would be on your guest list?

Are you a fan of Ted Lasso?
I love the show.
Here's the inside scoop on how to make his famous biscuits.

I tried this hair cleansing hack and it didn't work for me.

Attention animal lovers!

I read this article over the Summer and it made me smile. 

Attn:  #1 and #2
Since you won't listen to your Mother, the least you can do is read this article.

Are you a fan of The Sopranos?

I am.

I can't wait to see this.

Call The Midwife will be back next month!
Read all about it right here.
Btw... I love this outfit.

I preordered this.
I can't wait.

My favorite detective duo will be back with their final season.

The trailer looks pretty good.

Not sure I'll be blogging next month -too much TV to catch up on!

The first episode has aired.
Are you watching?

I am listening to and enjoying this historical novel.

I just started reading my pick from Amazon First Reads.

Guess who is collaborating with H&M?

Have a good weekend!

Until next time...

The perfect weight for this time of year.

I picked up a few more of these for my walks.

I have this cotton sweater in every color.

They wash well and don't pill.

 Extra savings on sale merch!

Cute stocking stuffer at a great price!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Feel free to contact me through comments and email. I love to hear from my readers!


  1. Somehow I have never seen Call the Midwife!
    Your little so cute.

  2. Last week I finished watching all six seasons of Downton Abbey. I want to watch all the Call the Midwife ones next - and then The Crown - wish me luck - I want to watch TV but I don't want to make time and sit down to do it .
    I like the Mark & Graham passport holder stocking-stuffer idea.
    Have an enjoyable weekend.

  3. Fun stuff Katie! I'm glad that sweet Millie is almost potty trained, and how sweet #2 wants her dad to cook her birthday dinner! I want to watch The Morning Show and Diana. Enjoy the birthday weekend!

  4. Have a great weekend celebrating your #2 and hopefully puppy love. I'm going right to the house tours, with James Farmer as my #1 (did I mention we're moving again???). I don't watch much tv, so I don't really have any comments there, but I just wish my HANDS looked as good Iris'!

  5. Adoring your sweet new little girl! I've been watching the new Midwife episodes on PBS Passport! They're good! I adore that show and Grantchester, too. Happy week, Katie!

  6. Happy birthday to your girl!! I Her and I share close ones... I just celebrated mine Thursday. I LOVE that she chose to have her dad cook her a birthday meal.

    Glad to hear your puppy is potty trained! No greater accomplishment in my book. :)

    OHHHH!!! That new show!! I am going to be all over it! Two of my favorite actresses in the whole world, Jennifer Aniston & Reese Witherspoon!!!

  7. I love Ted Lasso, Call The Midwife, and Grantchester. Happy fall to me!! Happy Birthday to your daughter. xo Laura

  8. Love your new puppy. Our son and his family just got a Cavapoo and I do believe it's the cutest breed I've ever seen but the pricetag was a bit ridiculous but thankfully I didn't have to pay for it. :o)) Just ordered the tunic sweater off Amazon because I needed "one more" sweater. So glad you are back with us.

  9. Always enjoy your ingitt egg native posts. Just spent an hour buzzing around your links…nice!! Have a great week.

  10. So much to love in this post dear friend! I’m drooling over the food of course and the lovely homes! True story, I know a man who has been making his wife those Ted Lasso biscuits for the past few months! Isn’t that sweet?! I may have to try them. I simply adore that show and Jason Sudeikis! Have a lovely week ahead!

  11. Hope the pups had fun and belated happy birthday to your #2! Beautiful homes, delicious looking salads, I also loved The Sopranos and want to see the movie! I LOVE the Midwifes and am happy it is coming back! Always a fun visit here, Katie!! Love & hugs!
