Five on Friday

And it's FRIDAY!!!  Wahoo!  Guess what?  We are already off to a fun weekend that involves a lake, family and lots of fun.  Hoping that beautiful weather comes along with us too.

Plus- down to 10 weeks of grad school left!
Linking up with Darci for another 5 on Friday!


Well, Charlie's first molar finally broke through so I'm considering that a milestone for him and for me.  Lets just say we are both SO excited for more.

But seriously...what happened to my baby?!?


TV shows are starting.  Not that I have time to watch them or anything, but that when pushing my own bedtime comes into play right?  Watched Nashville this week and cannot wait for Homeland and Scandal!!  Wahoo!!


I cannot believe Halloween is almost a month away!!!  Been trying to figure out what our babes are going to dress up as.  Not sure how long this will last, but last year it was so fun to coordinate Charlie and our dog's costumes.  

Ideas for Halloween 2013:

1. Charlie Brown and friends (love this one)
2. Charlie dress up as a dog (already have  a costume for this)
3. Chiefs player...and fans (the dogs)

So we'll see what I decide!! Any thoughts or ideas?!


Fall.  I know everyone has been talking about fall's arrival for a while now, but with cool weather this week it finally started to feel like it.  With a busy next couple months ahead (did I mention I cannot wait for school to be over??), need to make a list of a few things we need to do this season.  Hopefully will be a little more fun now that Charlie is more interested in things.

1. Go to the pumpkin patch

2. Make some Smores!

3. Go on a hayride

4. Decorate/carve pumpkins

5. Make some homemade playdough and enjoy!

6. Go to a local fall festival

7. Go trick or treating!!!

8. Go to a football game and tailgate

9.  Start our Christmas shopping (early start)

10. Enjoy walks in the cool air

So who's in to enjoy some of those with us??


Need a yummy, easy and semi quick recipe for weeknight dinners??  We had some friends over last night and I made this crispy cheesy chicken and it was delicious.  Already had all the ingredients on hand (I ended up forgetting the sauce- duh!).  But usually the chicken I make come out dry and even without the sauce it was SO good.  Not sure if it was this recipe, my new oven or a combo.  Either way: DELICIOUS!

Check it out here!

So there you have it.  Looking forward to a long weekend at the lake to have some fun and relax.  Hope yours is full of fun and relaxation too!!!

  1. My vote is Charlie Brown and friends. That would be ADORABLE!!! And pretty easy...

    1. Agreed - ok now I'm on the hunt for costumes!!!!

  2. Where did you get those book shelves? Love!

    1. Hi Heidi - thanks for the comment. I actually made the bookshelves and they are SO easy! Got the plans from Ana White ( and painted them white. I have LOVED them. I even made some for our living room for pictures...but it works awesome for books!!
