Five on Friday

I, like all of you I'm sure, am SO glad it's Friday.  Whew, what a week!  I'm linking up with with the girls, again for my fourth edition of a few Friday Favorites.

{one} SCANDAL IS BACK.  This is probably my favorite show on TV--right up there with Mad Men.  I won't say much in case you didn't watch, but HOLY MOTHER.  And if you don't watch it, you should.  Just sayin'


{two} I invested in a big girl curling iron last week, and I'm SO glad that I did.  I feel like my new cut looks so much better with big waves than it does when I straighten it, but my $17 curling iron from Target just wasn't cutting it--enter BaByliss 1 1/2" curling iron.  Game changer.


{three} My sweet Izzie dog got a haircut this week!  She always looks so cute & smells great after she gets groomed.  Our awesome friend, Brandon, takes such good care of her!  We're lucky to have a groomer in the "family"


{four} I was SO inspired by Ally and her OctNOber post this week.  No unnecessary spending for the entire month of October.  I'm going for it!  I think it falls at the perfect time of the year--I can start doing a little saving before the holiday spending starts next month!  When you have time, check out her blog, Life as I know it.  I'm all of four days in to my "month of no spending," and so far so good.  I will say, I see a lot of cleaning and organizing coming this month!

{five}  My planner--I can't believe I didn't post about this the last three Friday's, because this is one thing I couldn't live without.  My friends tease that I carry an old school planner around--but there's nothing "old school" about the Erin Condren Life Planner.  Carrying an actual planner just works for me.  Yes, I know I can do all of this on my phone, but I get immense satisfaction from making a list, and then crossing things off said list.  And I color code...don't judge.



Clearly the picture above shows what an insane week I've had!  We have a nice relaxing weekend planned & I'm looking forward to doing a whole lot of nothing! I'm excited to read through your Friday 5's to see what you're up to!

  5. I'm totally a paper planner person as well. The EC planners are too bulky for me though since I always have to have it with me.

    I watched Scandal last night and yes, OMG!!! It's so good.

  11. Thanks so much for the shout out girl!! You're too sweet and so happy to hear you're joining me! I have to admit I bought one thing for our house this weekend and I feel so guilty! But I did say I was still going to allow myself to buy a few home things if I find deals I can't pass it. And this was one I couldn't pass up! It was so hard shopping today with my friend and I didn't buy a thing! Good luck to ya!!

    1. Thank YOU!! You gave me the little nudge I needed--I just need to stay away from Target & the mall... Hoping we can both stay strong ;)

  12. I love planners! I carry one around with me too. It's just easy to get off track. And if my phone ever crashes or gets lost, I have a back up with all my appointments and important dates.
