Five on Friday

fof 5

TGIF!  It’s amazing how a short week can feel soooo long.  We have a busy weekend of fall activities to include family photos and a birthday party.  I’m thankful for the beautiful fall weather we’re experiencing in the Midwest.

one.  In my quest to become more organized, I bought my first label maker.  I am in love!  It’s not a high tech expensive one.  It was $19.99 at Target, and I found it cheaper at Amazon if you’re interested.  While it lacks bells and whistles, it gets the job done.  It even motivated me to tackle my first major organization task in a few weeks – linen closets.  Insert scary screams.


two.  If you have a pumpkin lover in your home, then run to Trader Joe’s ASAP.  Their pumpkin rolls are ahhhhmazing.  A pumpkin rolls and hot cup of coffee is my idea of a perfect Saturday morning.  They seem to sell out fast, too.53576-pumpkin-rolls-with-pumpkin-spice-icing.jpg

three.  The One Room Challenge lit a fire under me.  I’m proud to say we’ll be installing bead board this weekend and maybe even the bench.  It’s not all good news, though, as the light fixture I selected is on backorder until 2018.  Yikes!  Time to find another option.img_0145-1

four.  Finally!  A book that I can’t put down.  Don’t you love that feeling when you can’t stop reading a good story?  I’m late to read The Nightingalebut I’m glad I found it.  It’s set in WWII and involves a compelling family dynamic between two sisters.  When I finish I’ll write-up a brief review.


five.  Solitude.  After the conflict with my mother and cutting my vacation short, I took my remaining vacation day to enjoy some solitude.  Sometimes it’s good to just be alone to sit with your thoughts.

Happy weekend!
