Five On Friday

As always, I'm glad the weekend is here! Mister was away on business Monday through yesterday and it will be so nice to spend 2 days with him. Hope ya'll have some fun plans this weekend - we do!

{one} The temperature dropped this week here in Texas which gave Connor the chance to wear his first pair of fleece pajamas and of course, I picked the snowman ones. How cute is he? His giving his dog a hug. My boy... he is just sweet sweet sweet.

{two} I came across A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving AND A Charlie Brown Christmas on Amazon for less than $15 for both and grab them up as quick as I could. I can't wait to watch them with little man this season. We watched (and by watched, I mean I watched while Connor ran around like a mad man) The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown on C's birthday. I want to start a tradition to watch all 3 each year.

{three} Someone mentioned I should try Peppermint Mocha creamer... oh my world?!? Amazing!! As someone who isn't a big coffee drinker, this stuff makes drinking a full mug easy! But then again, nothing is better than peppermint and chocolate. You could spread both on lettuce and I'd dive in.

{four} The Mister and I purchased a new dining room table and chairs as our Christmas gift to each other and it will be here on Black Friday and I can not wait to get it. We are in desperate need of a new set and I am in LOVE with the one we picked out. I am already looking for the perfect runner for it along with a Christmas centerpiece.

{five} And the highlight of this Five On Friday. You know how much I love the holidays, right? Well, simply put Christmas is my favorite, hands down. And to celebrate the jolliest season of the year, I've teamed up with 3 other bloggers: Jenesha, Courtney and Jenny to create a 5 week Christmas link-up to share some of our favorite Christmas themed activities. Here is a sneak peek of what we have in store for ya'll! More details to follow.


  1. What a fun idea for a link up! I also got peppermint mocha creamer this week. Definitely puts me in the holiday mood.

  2. drank 2 (BIG) mugs of that peppermint mocha goodness today! YUM!! happy friday, girlie!!! xx

  3. I've been eyeing up the peppermint creamer for weeks now, but havent pulled trigger. Im an iced coffee fan but not coffee coffee... but it looks so good!

  4. peppermint mocha is the best way every to drink coffee! Well actually that's not true... the girl scout cookie thin mint creamer -- that's the best -- but it has to be a treat. Peppermint mocha is the best every day stuff! :)
    Love that photo of C in his snowman PJs - I can't wait for the link up!!! So excited!
