{friday 5}


Okay, so this week was weird.  But, I woke up this morning and instead of thinking how not-so-good it was.  I started thinking of all the good things that happened.  To me.  Around me.  With me.  And I gotta say.  It wasn’t really all that weird/bad after all.  I could list at least 5 things right now.  What ONE good thing that made you smile this week?  Mine – watching my daughter spot me at her volleyball game Tuesday afternoon.  She was scanning the bleachers.  I could tell she was looking for me.  Our eyes met and she shot me the biggest smile ever.  Happy that I’m able to sneak out of work early to be there ♥

Weekend plans: This evening we’re headed downtown on a double date with some friends.  Gonna drink some beerz, maybe some chard.  Who knows…I’m still debating on my drink choice for the night.  BIG decisions people, big decisions!  Bay’s going to her first middle school dance…I die!  The rest of the weekend we’re spending with our favorite Hostert girls in Salinas.  Apple pickin’ (photo ops + all the apple recipes to come) and an outdoor play in Carmel are on the agenda.  Probably going to drink too much wine and talk poor Nicole’s ear off too.  But, she loves me so it’s okay.


ONE – Fall color scheme // Orange + white + green.  Brought to you by good ol’ Trader Joe’s.  You guys, they have the best pumpkins.  Gotta give Sarah P a shout out for this one.  I’ve been waiting patiently for the TJ’s pumpkin patch to arrive.  I even called Monday and Tuesday.  Fall arrived on Wednesday.  Runnnn don’t walk and get all the things ASAP.  They sell out so quick.  I’m going back today to pick up a leaf wreath and pumpkin pancake mix.  Back to the colors…this is what I’ll be sticking with for my front porch and dining room table.  Still working on it, but hopefully I can share all the details next week!

THREE – ShopStyle // I know you may be getting sick of me posting about ShopStyle, but I can’t stop.  Love it or hate it….I’ve found a way to monetize this space of mine.  While still posting all the things I truly love.  Notifications are coming in and you guys are actually clicking on my links and buying the things I talk about.  I don’t know who you are but I do want to THANK YOU SO FRICKIN MUCH!  I can’t even express how much it makes my day.  Think of it as me being her personal shopper…lol.  I post it.  You click on it.  Buy it.  And I make a very small commission.  But every little bit adds up.  I teamed up with Amazon this week too.  And 7 of you ordered the meal prep containers…YAY! Here’s what else you guys have hit “purchase” on:

FOUR – 6 New Trader Joe’s Finds // You legit NEED these in your life STAT!

Perfect Bar (pumpkin pie flavor) – Thanks for the recommendation Emily Tidwell.  These are bomb and can be found in the refrigerated section by the sandwiches + salads.

Candy Corn Popcorn – For the record, I don’t even like candy corn.  #nufsaid

Salal Leaf Wreaths – I didn’t buy one at first.  But had to go back.  And I’m telling you when all the crazy Fall decorating ladies spot these bad boys they will be whipped out for the rest of the season!

Chicken Cilantro Mini Wontons – For wontons (Bay and I each had 6) 50 calories.  .5g fat.  9g carbs.  1g sugar.  3g protein.  They are so good.  Served over the frozen brown rice packets.  Easy weeknight dinner.

Spanish Olive Cream Cheese Spread – I had so many appetizer ideas I wanted to create with this.  Truth – we cleaned this container out before I had a chance.  It’s dangerously good!

Power of Seven Green – Bay liked, end of story!  Ha!
