Five on Friday 11/22


Happy Friday!

What do you guys think of the new blog design?! I have officially made the switch from Slice of Life to Katie Elizabeth. Read this post to find out the reasoning behind my decision. I'm so happy with how it turned out and am excited to see where the blog goes!

This week was a busy one and I am SO looking forward to the weekend!
Linking up with Casey, Lauren Elizabeth and A. Liz Adventures!

1) First things first, we're the volleyball champs!  I mentioned last week that we had started volleyball playoffs and won our first two games so we were headed to the championships.  It was a great game and we were so excited to win!  Can't wait for our next season starting in January!
 

2) Just when I think I can't love Bath & Body Works any more, they come out with these adorable candles!  I ran in quickly to pick up a gift so I didn't have too much time to check them out, but they had a whole line of Chicago candles!  So cute.  I can't find them online but for my Chicago girls, I found them at the Old Orchard mall in Skokie!


3) This weekend we are celebrating my friend Nicole's 25 birthday!  I am hosting people at my house and then we are headed out to the bars for fun night.  I made these delicious cake batter chocolate chip cookies for the party and OMG.  You all must make these.  They are amazing.  Hopefully there are some left for Saturday!


4) I had so much fun participating in the Christmas gift linkup hosted by Elise at cheers y'all.  I loved sharing my wish list and reading others!  It was funny how similar a lot of them were.  Check my Christmas gift ideas out here.


5) Speaking of Christmas... only 32 days to go!  That means it is so time for our Christmas tree and decorations to go up!  Sunday marks the official start of the Christmas season in my apartment.  I plan on putting up the tree, listening to Christmas music, drinking hot chocolate, and shopping at Target for cute things like this pillow!  It's only supposed to be a high of 24 degrees on Sunday so it looks like the weather will be cooperating.



Have a great weekend!

  3. Love the new blog name/design! I don't think the bbw stores around here have any of the location candles right now! What does the Chicago one smell like??

    I've been on the hunt for cute holiday pillows-- even though I know they'll probably all be way cheaper on sale after Christmas haha, but I didn't even think to look at target yet!
