post #40 - F5: Fall, Homecoming, TV, New Planner, & Sleep!

27 September 2013

Friday Friday Friday - September 27!

Y'all. I'm slacking. It's been a week since my last post. Sorry. Work has consisted of some late nights and early mornings this week, so paired with birthday festivities for Jo, I just haven't had the energy to blog.

This week:

1. It's FALL!
Now I officially don't feel bad about apple candles and pumpkins everywhere.

This is my post every other Friday, but I really can't wait to spend the weekend in Clemson. Something about the homecoming game always just brings a little more excitement than usual.

I couldn't be happier that some of my favorites are back in season! Has anyone else had a great week finally watching new episodes of New Girl, Mindy Project, Modern Family, the Middle, or the Voice? We love these shows. Still laughing over last weeks premiere of New Girl. Now once Scandal comes back next week, I'll be a happy girl.

Remember the post I did about May Books here? Well, I still love my May Books. I use them everyday, several times. One contains my master to-do list, something not to be messed with. But once I started work, I realized that while I really loved the convenience of the May Book planner, it just wasn't practical for my job. I needed something big.

Come - the Erin Condren life planner. Yes, I'm a sucker for reviews. After reading 8329874328 blog posts about these planners, I had to order. It's an investment, right? Kind of. Mine officially starts Oct. 1, but really started yesterday because it gave a few bonus days. This bad boy is the size of a small textbook. I chose this design because it was a little more professional than some of the others, but still very pink. So far, I love it! I've already written 43432432 things in it. I'll keep ya posted.

Sunday is nap day. I couldn't be any more excited. I don't know if this is a valid 5th thing, but it's pretty much all I'm thinking about right now, so there you have it.


Coming up on the blog sometime soon is a yummy and light key lime pie recipe. I know it's out of season - don't care. It's Jordan's favorite, so I made it for his birthday last week. It's too yummy not to share! And everyone loves a lowfat pie, duh.

Not coming up sometime soon? That Saluda's restaurant review. I was so hungry and happy to be spending time with Jordan, I forgot to take pics of anything. But it was delicious. Guess that means we'll have to go back again soon!

Oh, and his birthday gift for those of you who were wondering? Gym shorts, and dress shirt, and a super soft and fluffy Nap Robe from Brookstone. He loves it!

  1. I love my EC planner, look forward to getting a new one each year. I posted the same October picture today, my house is filled with pumpkin candles everywhere!

  2. Glad to hear your hubs loved his bday gift! I need to get a May Book. I carry around a cheap little notebook but I think it's time I invest in a nicer one! Have a great weekend!

  3. Erin Condren planners are seriously the best. They're pretty pricey, but you get what you pay for. Mine have lasted forever and they don't fall apart like most cheap planners. LOVE the colors you picked for yours!

    I'm going to Target on my lunch break and buying all the pretty fall candles that I can get my hands on! I just love fall so much!

  4. Stopping by from High Five for Friday - your blog is adorable! I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who couldn't wait for fall to get here so I could get out my candles :) And I'm also looking forward to a Sunday of napping and catching up on fall TV!

  5. I'm loving that planner!! I use my iphone, but also a paper calendar as backup...mine is not nearly as cute as yours.

    Have a great weekend!!

  6. I am LOVING new girl this season! When will Schmidt make up his mind!

  7. I LOVE {capital, 72 pt. font, bold, italic, underline, L.O.V.E} my Erin Condren planner. Absolutely worth every penny!

  8. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog :) I'm now following you, and can't wait to follow along! I would love it if you could follow me through GFC! Have a great day :)
