Friday

Friday Five

Ahh, we made it to the end of the week!

The past two weeks for me have been incredibly busy with lots of travel.  And really crazy hours.  I have decided that people who wake up at 5:30am on a regular basis are really just better than me.  I cannot do it.  I surrender!  You are amazing, I am lazy.  A 6:45 alarm is about as early as I want to go in the mornings.

Wednesday afternoon, I found out that I no longer needed to spend that night out due to an event cancellation Thursday, so I cancelled my hotel room for the night and hightailed it back to Charlotte quicker than you can say "homesick."  It's great to be home.

Tonight we'll try out a new-to-us pizza joint in our neighborhood and just relax.  We're doing some landscaping planning around our yard Saturday morning and will join friends out at a favorite bar patio for the Pirates game that afternoon.

So cheers to the weekend, and here are five things I've been loving lately!

{1} Blog Friends = The Best
I mean, really.  Between fun times together like a recent girls night with Christina and Laura, and of course seeing some fun ladies recently at Dee's baby shower, and really just the sweet emails that I get during the day from bloggie friends that put a smile on my face ... I'm kinda in love with all of this. 



{2} Dexter, My Main Man.
Hook, line, and sinker ... Ian and I are totally in.  We've been making our way through the first season of Dexter thanks to Netflix -- and we can't get enough.  Anyone else?!


{3} Pinterest Makes Me Crave Fall
Really, everything about it.  Obviously there are the caramel apple bites, the mulling spices, the carved pumpkins, the layered clothing idea boards -- but what I'm also getting excited for is switching out our spring/summer planters for fall foliage.  Ornamental kale, you have my heart.  Thanks, Pinterest, for all of the inspiration and wallet damage.


{4} A Mascara Junkie's Fave
I'm crazy about mascara.  I've professed my love before for L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen, but their recent addition to the line trumps it.  This mascara is so amazing and -- most importantly -- under $10.  It goes on smoothly, stays on all day, and comes off with my face cleanser and water.

{5} Fall Football
It's begun ... and we welcome it with open arms.  Last weekend our group of friends got together to cheer on the ECU Pirates.  Burgers, dogs, beer, and lots of great sides -- I could spend every single afternoon like this.

 
So happy weekending to you and yours, and hallelujah for the first official day of autumn on Saturday!

  8. Your crazy week definitely calls for extra celebration during 5 o'clock dance party. Like, I expect really weird looks from cars next to you.

    Where are you doing pizza tonight? Matt and I are headed to Revolution Pizza (thank you groupon) in Noda...interested in a change of venue? possibly?

    I bought the L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen mascara a few days ago and am hooked. Seriously, I get so giddy when I trade in expensive products for drugstore brand items that are more affordable and equally amazing.

    Yay for bloggy friends and Happy {almost} first day of fall, friend!!!

  12. Can I get an AMEN on that 5am wake up call business? I'm convinced more people "say" they like waking up early than really do. Nothing wrong with being a 7am girl. Going to scout out that mascara this afternoon - thanks for sharing.

  13. Yay for the weekend!!! We're trying out Heist Brewery in NoDa tonight.

    Also? We LOVE Dexter. I am so excited for the new season to start. It's one show that gets better and better each season!

  15. Dexter? Obsessed! Can't wait for this season. I am opposite of a morning person until my pregnancy now sleep is for the birds which seems wrong. I just can't get good sleep in my third trimester. Love the pics.
