Friday 5

and just like that it's Friday again! No big plans this weekend but I did go by Lowe's and pick up the new 9 footer tree I've been eyeballing since there were only two left. The reason I mention this is because it is going to be waaaay hard not to go ahead and put it up early. As excited as I am about the holidays this year .. I just can't... I have to wait until the morning after Thanksgiving (or even midnight that night!) Anyway, I hope everyone has an absolutely fabulous weekend!

Linking up today with the usual gang of pretty ladies: Christina, April, Darci, Natasha , Amanda over at Meet @ the Barre and Karli with September Farm - join in!


And today is the hubby's birthday! Happy birthday babe and hurry up and get home! Love you!




Speaking of the quickly approaching holidays- do ya'll need Christmas invites or cards? Well if so order them now because Groupon is kicking butt on some excellent deals! I just got 70 personalized cards for like 29 bucks and even ordered my Christmas party invites with a groupon for 27 bucks for 70 bucks worth of Vistaprint.com goods! #Winning

Have you new Moms or Moms-to-be seen this article floating around? I made the hubs read it because the husband comments in it seemed so much like him! Bless his heart! (haha) Great, cute and funny read! Whew- bring it on!



 Ya'll- I just realized I finally need to order more Erase Paste from Benefit. If you know me- I love Benefit products and Erase Paste is fantastic! Also, the price isn't terrible because it lasts an incredibly long time! Try this out if you've never tried it and let me know what you think!


 Favorite recipe? Now that I've seen this, I can't stop craving it (along with the ritz crackers) Jalapeno Popper Spread


Hollins was featured in an article about cool autumn women's college traditions and it made my week! Representing HU all day every day! Green & Gold for life! (good grief I'm cheering in my head)

  6. We/I used to wait until after Thanksgiving to put up our tree, but since we go home for Thanksgiving we'd never get to it to the wknd after and then it would only be up for a few weeks, so we usually put it up the weekend before! I love having it up early. A 9 foot tree sounds awesome too! Definitely scooping up that Groupon deal! Thanks for the heads up. And now I have to read that article. Have a great weekend lady!

  9. Happy Birthday to Seth! I'll definitely be putting our Christmas tree and all decorations up the weekend BEFORE Thanksgiving. That's not the norm for me, but when Thanksgiving is so late in the month, I feel like I need to pull out all the Christmas stuff a little early so it will be up long enough to make it worth all the effort. Thank you, thank you, thank you for noting the Groupon deal...perhaps you just motivated me to work on our Christmas cards! Have a fabulous weekend!
