Happy weekend!

Thanksgiving table ideas

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reflect on our blessings. What are you thankful for this holiday season? I’m thankful for so much, it’s pretty amazing the blessings that God has given me, the greatest blessing of all is my family of 5. This past year has been a whirlwind adding another child to our tribe. Our new normal has been a completely chaotic, but awesome adventure that I’m thankful to experience every day.

Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2017
Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I’m so excited for this evening’s trick-or-treat festivities!! My neighborhood goes ALL OUT for Halloween, the hood is chalk full of little kids and neighbors put a lot of effort into decorating and making Halloween super special for everybody. There’s even a full scale haunted house a few streets down where people from all over the city come to see.  We’re heading to block parties and out and about with our Wizard of Oz crew tonight! My Dad is here and the girls thought he’d make the perfect Scarecrow, grandparents are such good sports! Not featured, the hubby who will make his debut as the yellow brick road after work today.

Happy Halloween y’all!

Friday Five | The Calm Before the Storm

October 27, 2017

10-Amazing-Honeymoon-Destinations-the-everygirl-9I can barely believe it’s almost Halloween, and the holiday season is upon us. It finally feels like that outside, which makes me more in the mood for all things fall. That includes cozying up with good books (or articles!) like these. Enjoy the five and Go Astros!

Friday Five | Hello Fall!

The weekend! So glad you’re here. My plan consists of Thai take-out tonight, a cocktail tasting tomorrow and a massage Sunday morning. I’ve been holding onto a couple gift certificates, and I’m very ready to cash in on some relaxation. Enjoy these reads!

This helped me figure out what to wear to my first fall wedding next weekend in Wyoming.

What do your alarm habits say about you?

I’m on a Friends binge, so I was intrigued to read the one haircut ‘Rachel’ would never repeat.

Gossip Girl was a huge part of my high school self, so I enjoyed reminiscing as the show celebrates 10 years.

A salty twist on the classic crudité.

Fourth of July always comes right when we all need it. Summer boredom may have ensued for those of you with kids home from school, and adults are ready to be off duty for an extended weekend. Whether the American holiday takes you near or far, I hope it’s chock-full of summer fun. Five links as always!

  • I’ve given in to the basket bag craze, and I’m glad to see Garance has too.
  • A move forced me into a closet refresh, and it’s true: slimming down your wardrobe makes your most beloved items feel special again.
  • The stock market 101. In other financial news, I highly recommend Betting on Zero, available on Netflix.
  • The best cookbook for beginners who want to master the basics.
  • Does food taste different when it has your full, undivided attention? This piece makes a convincing case for eating out alone.

Happy Fourth!
