It's Friday, Y'all

In case you weren't aware, today is Friday. It's not that different from the rest of the days of the week for me, but I'm sure it is for some of you. What happened with you this week? What are you planning (or not planning) for Halloween? Feel free to play along in the comments section.

1. Highlight of my week?
Honestly? If I'm being real, I'd have to say it was the two mornings I dropped Natalie off at preschool. It's been a rough week with my oldest, who is 3 1/2 going on 15. For reasons unknown, she is a model child for her teachers, but saves all the sass for me. Preschool gave me a brief respite from the child who often treats me as one of her subjects, and I got to spend time with her polar opposite...otherwise known as the younger sister. I know that someday that iron will is going to come in handy, but for now, today is a new day with a clean slate.

2. What am I reading?

Candace Bushnell's One Fifth Avenue. To be fair, I've only read the first two paragraphs, but it's not too bad so far. Something about a script and a move to New York City. She's got my attention!

3. Favorite thing I made this week?

A personalized Trick or Treat bag for Natalie. Now that I know what I'm doing, Michaela Byrd's is going much faster. Which leads me to....

4. Plans for the weekend:
Mimi (my mom) offered to take the girls to a Harvest Festival for a few hours this evening. Maybe T and I can get a few things done around the house and yard while they are out. Saturday is the first time the girls will ever go Trick or Treating. I'm almost as excited as they are. Our church is hosting a huge Fall Festival at the local mall in the evening with petting zoo and hayrides (outdoors), games, prizes, and tons of candy. We'll stop by there first and let the girls Trick or Treat on our street before bedtime. (They've been practicing!) Then I will tax their Trick or Treat earnings. Just kidding. Or am I?

5. Best TV of the week?
I'm going to take this opportunity to admit something really (!) embarrassing to you. Please do not laugh at me, because chances are I have read your blog and have dirt on you too. I am hooked on the CW's Vampire Diaries. It's all my friend L's fault. First, she got me hooked on Twilight, then on the Sookie Stackhouse books, and now I'm hooked on Stefan and Damon and finding out who gets the girl. She's like some sort of dealer, I tell you! I am powerless to resist.In my defense, those guys are really really good looking. If you haven't seen the show, it's like a PG-13 version of a vampire story, and Twilight would be considered a PG version. Excellent fluff, lots of twists, lots of hunky guys.

6. Favorite Links of the Week:
Kate and Kim's apron projects
"A Soldier's Wife" feature over at my sister Alison's blog
Trash to Treasure switchplates by Kimm
Julia's tour of the Practical Magic house

{Have a wonderful weekend, wonderful readers! Don't eat too much candy!}

  1. Fun post! I may need to do a post like this, it's been a rough week & I could use a nice distraction.

  2. George Costanza said it.

    Can I have my 10 points? ;)

  3. We're taking our little man trick or treating tomorrow night for the first time too. So excited! What a cute treat bag!

    Short Pump sounds awesome! We could do lunch or drool over Pottery Barn or whatev. Just let me know what day works for you. I'm pretty flexible- I'm a spur of the moment kind of person!

  4. This week has seemed super long. have a 3 year old teenager must really wear you out. Maybe my the teen years she'll be tired out and you'll have an easy time then.

    Have fun trick-or-treating with the girls!

  5. Fun post! This HAS been a long week! I hope the rain is out of our area for a while. Have a safe and happy Halloween!

  6. Well my week was too short! I was at my mother's house Monday and Tuesday so since Wednesday I've thought it was Monday!

    Love the bag(s) you made. Very cute indeed! No book for me right now nor tv..too much computer time! ;)

    My sister in law is on her way to my town right now and we are going to do a little Christmas shopping this weekend. That will be good to get more presents purchased.

    Happy Halloween to you and your sweet pea girls!



I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
