Five On Friday

Hey, hey, hey!!  It's FRIDAY!!  Yippee!!

And with that, I am finally home on a Friday for once and able to link up with some of my fave blog-lady friends for their weekly "Five on Friday" post!  Here are five things that topped my list for the week!

I am in full blown party planning mode for my sister's Bachelorette Party over Labor Day weekend...When trying to decide upon a color scheme, I found this picture on Pinterest, and I was instantly sold.  I mean, how adorable is this?  Now, I just have to find someone to draw me up that awesome chalkboard...

If you follow me on Instagram ( @jennaschaben ) you probably saw this picture last night...I thought everybody knew what a Scotcheroo was, but I had so many people ask what they were and for the recipe...They must be more of a Midwestern treat!!  Anyway, I use this foolproof recipe found HERE.  They are so simple and so yummy...If you like Peanut Butter and Chocolate, then you will love these.  Trust.

I informed y'all on Wednesday that I wanted to gut my old dining room and start from scratch...well, after many searches in magazines and on the internet, I kept getting drawn to this color scheme:  Coral, Navy, Gold and Khaki.  I'm using this picture as inspiration and running with to come as soon as we start the makeover!

We are headed back to good 'ol Columbus for the third weekend in a row to celebrate my cousin's wedding on Saturday.  And this, this little guy is beyond excited to be in his first ever Ring Bearer role!  I mean seriously??  How cute is this little tux??  He looks like a little man!  Don't worry, more pictures will be up after the weekend and all weekend long on Instagram :)

This stuff right here is phenomenal.  It is perfect for a summer brunch or just a light appetizer with a glass of moscato.  Strawberry Bruschetta.  Delicious.  If you want the recipe, you can find that here.

That's all for today!  I hope y'all have a fantastic weekend!  

Until next time...
