{friday 5}


It’s Friday (hu-frickin-ray)!  Honestly, it’s really hard to believe October is coming to an end next week.  I feel like I cannot keep up with this year?  Anyone else?  I’ve got the Holidays on my mind BIG TIME.  I’ve started shopping too.  Which is one of my Holiday goals.  And after the Serendipity Boutique + bella moda boutique Christmas Preview last night, my wheels are spinning.

Weekend plans: My to-do list is staring me down.  It’s been growing longer each day this week.  I’ve been so swamped with work, I hardly have time to check my email or order my groceries.  I’ve been on survival mode…lol.  Tonight Bay and I are having a date night.  Mani’s + pizza + watching La La Land (she hasn’t seen it yet).  I can’t wait to sleep in.  Spend some time with friends.  Possibly get wine tips with Alex.  Maybe church?  God knows I need a little church in my life.

Before I let you get your weekend started, let me quickly chat about 5 things on my mind…..




ONETurkey On The Table //  Kinda like Elf on the Damn Shelf, but for Thanksgiving.  Except, it’s not a pain in the ass at all.  And you don’t have to move it daily.  So, basically it’s nothing like Elf on The Damn Shelf…lol.  It’s more of a lesson on being grateful.  I’m all about gratitude.  I actually started practicing it daily, thanks for #last90days challenge.  Here’s how it works…for every day in November, write down something you are thankful for on the paper feather.  Each family member can take turns or everyone can write on the same one.  It’s totally up to you.  Place it somewhere that you’ll see it.  On Thanksgiving day, you’ll have a “fully dressed” turkey to display.  You can then read all the thankful feathers aloud.  It’s such a cute idea.  And the best part, for each Turkey on The Table purchased, 10 meals will be provided to someone in need through Feeding America.

TWO – Currently Reading // I had to ditch my last audio book.  So many great reviews, but the voice-over was absolutely terrible.  If you’re an audio book listener, then you get it.  Picked up Reese Witherspoons new Whiskey in a Teacup : What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love, and Baking BiscuitsBest part, she’s actually the reader of her own book.  Which I don’t think I’ve ever seen before?  Anyway, it’s so cute and lighthearted…I’m really diggin it.  I also grabbed Chrissy Teigen’s newest cookbook Cravings: Hungry for More And she nailed it.  Everything looks so good.  I can’t wait to dive into it more this weekend and dog ear some pages to add to my “must make list!”  What are you reading?  Anything good I should add to my list next?




THREE – Micaela’s California Fresh // The beloved tortillas and salsa are coming back friends!  I just checked the facebook page to confirm – Monday, November 5th we’ll be able to pick them up at our local grocery stores in town.  This is the best news ever!  We’re so excited Brooke + Charley ♥


FOUR – Madewell Tops // As I did my early morning Madewell + J.Crew scroll, I noticed that Madewell has some cute shit on their sale section.  That’s where I picked up this ruffle tie-front tank.  It’s now $14!  And I love it.  Super cute under a military jacket too.  I know it’s not really tank weather, but I’m all about layering under cardigans and jackets like this.  Scroll down for some cute finds under $40!
