Five on Friday

TGIF!! Thanks to having strep throat not once but TWICE, it seems like this is the first full work week I've had in a while and it felt long.
1. Today is HALLOWEEN!! One of my most favorite holidays. I've been listening to the Halloween Party station on Pandora and watching a little bit of Halloween movies on tv here and there as I've had time. This is a picture of my favorite Halloween costume.

2. I just made a hair appointment for the Tuesday of Thanksgiving week. I always look forward to hair appointments. I always feel like a new woman afterwards. Does anyone else feel this way?

3. I am *trying* to go on a spending freeze as far as buying myself clothes in order to start Christmas shopping. So far I've gotten nothing for anyone. Part of my spending freeze means that I am not going to let myself look at the new items on the Lilly Pulitzer website. Too tempting.
4. I've absolutely devoured Little Big Lies, The Husband's Secret, What Alice Forgot, The Last Anniversary and am currently reading The Hypnotist's Love Story. I LOVE Liane Moriarty.
5. So far I have nothing but wonderful things to say about our Stearns and Forster bed. I saw some bad reviews online after we bought it. It's so comfortable and I slept so peacefully last night. It's been a life changer. I will post a bedroom post soon.

  1. I might read "The Husband's Secret"; a few blogs have mentioned it and I'm really curious about what the secret is. I'm currently on "A Good Marriage" by Stephen King

  2. My Christmas shopping is done! It's tempting though, those deal emails coming in. My goal is no spend for the next 10 months, then after we buy the house, my treat is a new Lilly dress!

  3. Awww. strep throat?! Not cool! I hope you feel better! I have a hard time not shopping either and I've been kind of trying to set the mentality that unless it's for someone else for a gift, I don't need it! :)
