Five on Friday

fof 5

one.  My husband is in Colorado until tomorrow so I’ve been wrangling the three kids on my own.  That is not a favorite of mine by any stretch of the imagination.  They are a handful.  BUT he’s returning from his trip with my favorite toffee.  We discovered Enstrom Toffee last Christmas, and life hasn’t been the same since.  Normally I hate toffee because it’s sticky and tastes like stale candy, but Enstrom toffee is buttery smooth and oh so fresh.  It tastes like it was made just for me.  I could wax poetic about this toffee.  Check it out for Christmas gifts….for yourself.


two.  Since I love my toffee, I must admit working out is bumping back up the priority list.  My family is happier when I’m working out because I’m less, um, cranky/irritable.  I loathe working out in a gym like a zombie on the dreadmill or elliptical.  I’m thinking I’ll try out Pure Barre.  It’s all the rage and seems like a good place to also meet people.  Now the introvert in me has to work up the guts to go to a class.

three.  Due to all that’s going on with wildfires/hurricanes, the One Room Challenge gave everyone an extra week.  Thank you!  If you missed my post yesterday, I updated where I’m at with our closet turned mudroom.  This weekend I must find a light fixture.

four.  Perhaps it’s because I’m, ahem, older but my kids just don’t appreciate Charlie Brown & the Great Pumpkin.  They’re spoiled by the high-def action packed cartoons and don’t appreciate the classics.  Gosh, I sound like an old lady.  I love watching the holiday Charlie Brown shows.  Maybe I’m nostalgic like that.  Or old.


five.  Tomorrow a friend and I are going my favorite craft fair.  If you’re in the Ohio area you must check out Charm at the Farm.  It’s an outside vintage/rustic/farmhouse chic craft fair.  Perfect event to enjoy the fall weather and pick-up some Christmas gifts.  Or something for yourself.  Last time I went I stumbled upon the Cotton Blossom Exchange.  I walked away with 5 items, I think.  Sadly they won’t be at the fair tomorrow but you can check out their stuff online.

Have a great weekend!
