I can't believe it's Friday again! This week totally got away from me with trying to get ready for our guests that will be arriving tonight. Working on the bathroom, guest room and cleaning the house - that's about what I've been up to! We've also had some seriously beautiful weather so I tried to get out and take advantage of that as much as possible, I feel like we may have experienced our last 70 degree day of 2015, so sad :( But that also means we're that much closer to the holidays! The only reason that's only on my mind is because I may or may not have bought my first piece of Christmas decor this week... okay, I did. And I love it.
On to my five on Friday...
ONE | Are you guys watching Code Black on CBS? It's definitely my favorite new TV show this fall, I'm obsessed. I've always been a big fan of medical dramas though so that's probably why I love it. Does anyone remember ER from the 90's/2000's? Netflix really needs to bring that one back!
TWO | I'm beyond bored with my usual lunch rotation. I always either have some kind of sandwich (turkey, grilled cheese, caprese) or leftovers, but lately I've been wanting to mix it up instead. What are your favorite lunches?
THREE | Now that we have our new couches, we are in desperate need of a new coffee table. Nick wants a traditional wooden one, but I'm kind of leaning more towards an ottoman style. Erin Gates from Elements of Style rounded up a bunch of them this week - see here. This one is my personal favorite, but of course it's $$$.
FOUR | Tonight, our Junior League chapter is hosting a Soup Exchange. We each bring 6 individual quarts of soup (I'm bringing this minestrone - SO GOOD) and then 1 serving is for tasting, 1 is to donate to an organization we work with and the other 4 get to be taken home by other ladies. I'm excited to try some new soups - I guess I can eat those for lunch, haha.
FIVE | We scheduled our Christmas card photos for next Sunday! I'm so excited and also slightly nervous as to how Brady is going to do. I feel like he's going to be wild and all over the place - if anyone has any tips on how to reign pets in to get a good picture, feel free to throw them my way ;)
