Five on Friday 10/25


Friday is here again!  And listen to this... only 2 months until Christmas!!!  Crazy!  I'm super excited for Christmas this year because it's the first one that Nick and I have ever spent together in the 6 years we have known each other.  Now, that is crazy.  Back to the present... it was just another week around here.  The highlight was getting some VERY exciting news from a friend (that I can't share yet!) and the low was that snow flurries were reported on Tuesday.  Gross.

Linking up with both Lauren Elizabeth and A. Liz Adventures for their Five on Friday!

1) Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin- I have a serious addiction to all things Bath and Body Works.  This year, I bought a travel size bottle of the Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin scent and fell in love.  After flying through it, I went back to the store and it was already gone. Luckily, I found it online and even MORE lucky for me (and you!), all SCP products are 50% right now!!  So, I did what any normal person would do and ordered 6 bottles of lotion.
**Remember this post about B&BW candles?  Well, right now the large 3-wick candles are 2 for $22 (regularly $20 a piece) AND you can get 25% off with coupon HELLOFALL25!  Check them out here!


2) Mac&Cheese SHAPES- I picked up some Kraft Mac & Cheese at the grocery store on Sunday because I've been craving it!  I couldn't remember the last time I made it which is saying something because we lived off shapes and spirals in college.  The craving came on full force Tuesday at lunch.  I had to laugh because I had so many good leftovers in the fridge - prosciutto pasta, cabbage soup, boneless pork ribs - but sometimes all a girl wants is Mac & Cheese!


3) Leopard flats- I've been wanting a pair of leopard flats for a while now.  I didn't want to spend a lot of money on them because it's almost winter (and I'll be living in boots) and who knows if they will still be "cool" next year. I found this awesome pair at Target and they met every check on my checklist: cheap ($21.99!), cute and comfortable!


4) Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow- All I'm going to say is do yourself a favor this weekend and make this!  It was a hit last weekend tailgating and it's a perfect fall treat.  I'm not going to take any credit for this dessert and instead just send you over to Peanut Butter Fingers for the recipe!


5) Family visit- My family is coming to visit us in Chicago this weekend!  We just saw them last weekend for the Michigan football game so it's a treat to see them twice in one month.  Shopping, eating, and watching Nick play hockey are all on the weekend agenda!

 Earlier this springs shopping trip - Nick loves holding our bags :)

Have a good weekend!

  6. I LOVE the flats, adorable! The last time I was sick I asked my hubby to stop on his way home and pick me up mac & cheese, it was the only thing I wanted. I told him it had to be shapes, he thought I was totally insane... I assured him the shapes and spirals are way better than the plain noodles. He brought me Monsters Inc mac & cheese :) He still thinks I'm insane, but they truly do taste better!
