Five on Friday: Vol. 14

Hooray for Friday!  Linking up to my fave day of blogging with the gals below.


ONE – fall fur & fun tights

I love this cardigan with a fur collar – now I’m on the hunt for a vest.  So cozy and warm on a chilly fall day!

I got a compliment on my “crazy purple legs” yesterday at work when I wore these tights.  These are definitely out of my comfort zone, but I must have gotten a wild hair and just decided to go with it.  They were fun!  Now I kind of want more! 

TWO – the best mask ever


This mask needs to get back in my life STAT.  I got it for Christmas at least two years ago and just recently ran out.  It lasted forever, and I really can tell a difference in my skin now that I haven’t been using it for a couple of weeks.  Must find more!

THREE – dinner part-ay


Last night was a fun excuse to use cloth napkins – we had a couple from church over for dinner.  It was a nice change of pace from an ordinary “work night.” 

FOUR – the flower wars


One of the constant themes of marriage that I’ve noticed time and time again has been the different way that men and women prioritize spending.  What I mean is, Austin may place value on something like shotgun shells and see no problem with spending money on them, whereas I have never bought a shotgun shell in my life and probably never will.  However, I love to have fresh flowers on occasion, and I can generally talk myself into picking some up at the grocery store “because we have people coming over for dinner…” or any myriad of other justifiable reasons… Anyway, I got these, and I like them, and they are a good treat – we’ll just leave it at that!  Austin still doesn’t get it.  I don’t think the flowers really do it for him the way that shotgun shells would!   

FIVE – pear season


The grocery stores are FULL of pears lately, and I’m loving trying every different kind that I can get my hands on – these are Bartlett pears, and they look kind of like apples.  I have my suspicions that they will taste a bit like apples, too.  One is in my lunch box today, and I can’t wait.  Aren’t they pretty?

Happy happy happy Friday!
