Yay! It's Friday!!

Hello and Happy Friday!! I love Fridays because I know that come Friday, the week is over. No more work, no more rushing through traffic to make to make dinner, no arguing over homework with Adrian. No matter how stressful, the weekend is always better!! Now, since it's Friday, let's get to this week's favorites:

1. Fall has arrived. Most (amazing, do things on time) bloggers have had their homes decorated for weeks now. Not me! I went out and purchased a bunch of fall decor in August because come September, I was going to be ready. Then all of it sat in a corner in the dining room until Wednesday of this week when I grabbed some stuff and put it on our coffee table.

Yup, that's it. That's the extent of my fall decor. Some pumpkins and a couple of owls. It's sad! I'm just going to return the rest of the stuff I purchased and exchange it for Halloween items. Now that I will be ready for!

2. Halloween is probably my favorite holiday after the 4th of July and I will not be embarrassed by my decor this year. Last year, I was down in the dumps and didn't decorate much. Not this year! I am ready to DIY a wreath, a giant spider and get my home ready for Halloween! P.S. if you have any Halloween decorating posts, please leave a link in the comments. I need all the inspiration I can get.

3. Remember in this post where I talked about updating my master bedroom, well the saga continues. On Saturday, I will be heading to IKEA for storage solutions. I'm not sure exactly what I want, but whatever it is, I know I will find it at IKEA.

4. Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn has been on repeat in my house all week! It's a new show on Nickelodeon that Adrian is obsessed with. We have watched the pilot episode (on OnDemand) about 12 times this week. The show is about the lives of a set of quadruplets, three boys and a girl, and all the trouble they get themselves into. It seems like a cute show but please Nickelodeon, step it up with more episodes. I can only watch the pilot episode so many times!!!

5. Do you like men with beards? I love them! I think a man with a nice beard (not ZZ top/Duck Dynasty beards) looks handsome and distinguished. Well, JC has grown out his beard and man does he look sexy! He says he is growing it out for "Movember" and then shaving it off but I have a feeling it's going to be around for a while.

What new shows are your kids watching? Does your husband rock a beard? What plans do you have for this weekend? Remember to please leave me a link to any Halloween DIY post you have!!

As always, I am linking up at:


Thank you so much ladies for hosting these super fun linkys!!


  1. I too am readIng how other bloggers have their fall posts about their wonderful "fall decor" already up...I too am late on that one this year! ;) I love Fridays partly since I don't have to argue about homework with our Daughter Evalyn. Ugh!! LOL Yay for Fridays!


  2. I recently just added some Fall/ Halloween decor around my house too. Happy Friday!

  3. I am right there with you on the fall decorating and don't feel bad because all I've done is put out a Harvest Yankee Candle! I'm determined to spruce my place up this weekend, but we'll see - never enough hours in a day, right?! Have a great weekend!

  4. Yep. You're lucky if I even get anything fall related up before winter. LOL. I'm the WORST!!! Every freaking year I plan to do it but nope. I fail. EVERY TIME! LOL

    We don't have any channels- just Netflix and Amazon and Emma's obsessed with Horrid Henry. Or is it Horrid Harry? Something like that. It's cute and she talks in a British Accent when she's talking about it.

    Your hubby looks quite good in facial hair! Very ruggedly handsome!

    TGIF, Ida!

  5. I'm excited about fall, too--the weather here in SC has finally gotten a tad bit cooler and is only in the low '80s now (break out the parkas!!). I wish I could decorate for fall, but we're in the middle of selling our house and I can't bear the thought of fixing/cleaning the house anymore than we already are. I'll have to live vicariously through all of these way-more-on-top-of-it bloggers than me! :)

  6. My husband hates to shave but I'm really not a fan of facial hair on him, so he bounces back and forth between scruffy beard and clean-shaven. :P

  7. That reminds me to get out our Halloween decorations! We don't have that many but they're fun.
    This is a particularly beautiful fall weekend. It feels like summer!

  8. Hey, you have way more fall decor out than I do, haha! I have NONE. I'm always so bad at doing that. I loooove Halloween and I of course decorate for Christmas. Your decor looks so cute and I can't wait to see what you do for Halloween. And yes, men with beards are sexy!!!! They look so masculine and distinguished.
