Five on Friday Faves

What's going on, my lovelies??  Are y'all as excited as I am about the fact that it's finally FRIDAY??!!  I cannot even begin to express my excitement for that which is the weekend!  And it's not just any's a three day weekend, Labor Day weekend, Husker Football (or I guess we could be generic and say college football in general) opening weekend, but most importantly (for me) it's my sister's bachelorette party weekend!!!  Yippeeeee!!

There is just so much to be excited about for this weekend, so what better way to kick off these three days of bliss than with my fave blogging day of the week and another edition of "Five on Friday?"  I absolutely love this link up for so many reasons...but I feel like I could go on and on today with my "Five!"  Anyway, let's get to it, and join Darci and a few other awesome ladies for this link up!

It's baaaaaaack!!  Y'all I am over. the. moon. EXCITED for this little drink of deliciousness to make it's happy return!!  I literally wait all year long for pumpkin spice everything, and I cannot get enough.  They seriously need to consider just making it a staple on their everyday menu.  I mean, who wouldn't love a pumpkin spice latte on the Fourth of July?? ;)  Needless to say, you will for sure find one of these in my hand 6 out of 7 days of the week from now until January.  #truth

GOOOOO BIIIIIIIG REEEEED!  GO BIG RED!  That's right.  There's no denying the fact that I am a die hard Husker fan.  My Dad played football (and went to school) there.  I graduated from there.  My sister graduated from there.  My brother was going to go there until he went back to the farm to help my Dad when he got sick.  So Husker Red pretty much runs through our blood.  I look forward to football season every fall...not only for the games, but to hang this lovely little number on our front door!!  how adorable is that?  I got it made at a local boutique just down the road from me, and this gal does everything from sports teams to birthday signs.  They are each unique and no two are the same.  Love it!  If you want, you can check it out online:  Harbor Farm Chick Market.  Love that place.  But I love my door sign more...

There is less than two months left until my baby sister ties the knot...and, in typical Matron of Honor fashion, I wouldn't feel like I'm doing my job justice unless I bragged about her beautiful and unique invitations that came in the mail last week.  She created them from scratch, as she wanted them to be original.  I think her mission was accomplished!  These pictures don't truly exemplify just how gorgeous they are in real life, but all I have to say is she did good.  I CANNOT wait for the big day!  As for my MOH speech...that's a whole other story!  Ask me in about 6 weeks...

This boy.  Oh be still my beating heart.  We leave him at Grammy and Papa's (my Mom and Dad's) for a week and he comes back a totally different kid!  I don't know what they all did to him, but he will actually eat everything off his plate, do what I say without me having to ask a hundred times, and the best part???  He no longer needs to wear pull-ups to bed!!  I'm pretty sure I owe my parents big time.  We are now not only a diaper free house (and have been for about 8 months), but also a pull up free house.  As happy as I am about that accomplishment, is it bad that I just want time to pause now???  Because it's definitely going by waaaay too fast!!  Slow down little boy...stop growing so fast.

Have y'all been on Pinterest lately???  Well, if you haven't, trust me when I say that everyone and their dog is thinking what I'm thinking: It's time for FALL!!!  The majority of the pins on my homescreen today were pumpkin/apple/fall related.  And I just can't complain!  But, these little suckers caught my eye...I mean I love pumpkin pie.  I love cheesecake.  I love mini versions of any dessert.  And these are all three of those things!  Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake with a Gingersnap crust.  YUMMO.  This is definitely going into my "make immediately" recipe bin.  I cannot wait to dive head first into these little morsels!

Well my dears, I think that about does it for me!  I've got a crazy weekend lined up, and I've still got a million things left to do before my party tomorrow night!  Be on the lookout for a replay of our shenanigans on a post next week.  I promise it will be one you won't want to miss!

Have a great weekend y'all!

Until next time...


  1. When did you potty train the little man? My youngest will be 2 in January, so I'm thinking sometime shortly after. I'm exhausted thinking about it!
    Also, do you really get psl's 6 days a week? I'm jealous!


    And look at that angel boy - sounds like I need to get J to Grammy and Papa's house immediately! HA! J always comes home acting like a spoiled brat when he's spent any time with either grandparents.... all rules go out the window and he gets whatever he wants (guess it's different since they live 12 hours away and don't get to see him very often!).

    Hope you and your sweet crew have a great weekend!!! xo!
