5 on Friday

Linking up today for my first 5 on Friday - link up with Darci to join in on the fun!


{ONE}  I'm very much looking forward to tomorrow's night game in The Shoe with my daddy. We haven't been to a game yet this season, and this will be a GREAT game! Plus, I haven't spent any quality time with my dad in a LONG time. I'm just hoping I'm still awake by the end of the game - getting old sucks!

{TWO}  I picked up some new drawing pens yesterday, and I can't wait to start using them. In order to use them I would need to find some time to draw. Well I've decided I'm going to MAKE that time. 

{THREE}  What is with Columbus traffic lately?! In the past two days I have been stuck in more traffic than I have in the past two months. I'm very glad my daily drive is away from all of the traffic. If I had to deal with this on a daily basis I would need some high blood pressure medicine - I don't know how you big city people do it!

{FOUR}  Have you checked out Kiki La'Rue yet?? I'm well on my way to becoming a Kiki La'Rue Addict. The clothes are well made, and CUTE for us plus sized girls. Shipping is super quick and customer service is the best. I currently have a store credit and I can't decide for the life of me what to get!

{FIVE}  I'm excited to blog next week, and I've made my first ever "blog plan." If you are an extreme type A like me, you understand the importance of a list. Now that it's on a list it will happen. I have a few projects I've been working on that are finally complete so I will finally be sharing before and afters. 

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Fall is Here

I can't believe how gorgeous it is outside today, and I feel yucky!

I'm wondering if most of it has to do with the fact that I slept with my bedroom window open for the past 2 nights, letting the amazing cool air flow in. . . right into my sinuses. Probably didn't help that I did yard work yesterday for a few hours too. Although the allergist says I don't have "fall allergies" I'm def feeling something!!

Anyway - I put up my fall decor over the weekend. Didn't do much outside yet, but got the inside looking very fall-like. Now all I can think about is watching Halloween movies and making chili! Anyone remember Hocus Pocus? It's one of my all time favorite Halloween movies! The possibility of me watching this in the next week is VERY high.

A few pictures of my fall decor:

My mantle. As I was looking through pictures on my phone I realized I had last year's picture of my mantle, and stunningly they are almost identical. What can I say - I know what I like!

Owl bag that I always use to pass out candy to the kids. And my front door - def something lacking there. I've got to find something better, but at least I have something up for now.

And that's all I have for today - like I said, allergies are kicking my butt today. Are you ready for fall? What is your favorite part of fall??

Writing Again . . .

Well if any followers are left (not that I think I had any to begin with), I'm going to start writing and posting again!

As always, things have been a little crazy, and unfortunately some not-so-good things happened within my family. Everyone is OK, but it was a rough few weeks. And, as those days were never ending and miserably unhappy, I've come to realize that I really do enjoy writing. I don't know if I'm good at it or really what to write, but I'm going to make a dedicated effort to this little blog. 

So, I'm going to recap my last work trip - a trip to Miami University in Oxford, Ohio to recruit!!

It's not Ohio State, but it's still fun to get out of the office and be back on campus! Plus, I get to see some co-workers that I don't see very often. And more than anything, I enjoy talking to all of the young energetic kids ready to enter the workforce (boy I feel OLD). 

(Yes, this is what we did for 4 hours Wednesday afternoon)

Not going to lie, the highlight of the trip is ALWAYS Bagel and Deli


And I got to eat there twice! And most importantly, I tried something new. 

I'm not only one of the pickiest eaters, but I'm always SUPER nervous to try new things when I'm traveling for fear they will upset my stomach. But I made a great choice because it was delicious and I had no tummy troubles. 

Back to the grind today, but very much enjoyed the 2 day break to be "at college" again.

If you are a follower, stay tuned, because I WILL stay committed this time and blog on a regular basis. Enjoy the weekend!!
