Happy Friday to you and to the lovely hostesses of Five on Friday - A.Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, The Good Life, and Hello Happiness! I’m going to dive right in because I’m pretty excited about my number one…
ONE: We have a house! We closed on Wednesday, and it is official. I can’t believe it! We are over the moon excited. Now I really need to pack up our entire apartment this weekend – yikes. Tonight I made zero progress on packing, but I did tear out two recipes from Cooking Light, so I’m calling that a win. Also on the agenda this weekend: installing blinds, cleaning the new house, and appliance shopping. Woo-hoo!
TWO: Casey cooked us dinner on Monday, and she brought these teeny tiny ice creams for dessert. They were the perfect size! Loved those little guys.
THREE: Mom’s October card came in the mail yesterday, and it is hard to believe that this is the last card I’ll get at this address. She has sent me a card every single month for the forty-one months we’ve lived here. Looking forward to November’s coming to the new house!
P.S. – There was coordinating candy corn washi tape on the envelope!!
FOUR: In other news about how I was productive in all the wrong ways this week, I’ve been pinning paint colors up a storm. We are planning to hold off on having any of the interior walls painted for a little while and just live with the neutral gray that is there for the time being. But rest assured, I have my color palette ready to go when the time comes!

FIVE: And a little “fall back Friday” to round out my five - oh how our Halloweens have changed. I don’t think we ever imagined we’d be married and getting ready to move into our first house eight years ago when we took this pic at a Halloween party in 2006!
