Five on Friday: Vol. 39

Happy Friday to all of you and to the lovely hostesses of Five on Friday - A.Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, The Good Life, and Hello Happiness.  Not only is it Friday, but the day is made even better by the amazing giveaway these ladies are hosting today!


ONE – New skincare!  On top of being one of the sweetest and most organized friends I know, my friend Kylee has the most amazing skin you have ever seen in your entire life.  She also happens to work in the skincare industry, and she recently recommended her top three products of all time to me.  I purchased them last weekend and have been using all week.  Loving them so far!  I think I’m finally starting to realize that my skincare routine might need to consist of more than a bar of Dove soap and some moisturizer.


TWO – Fall polish – I’ve been rocking the “Chinchilly” all week, but my nails are getting in the Aggie spirit tomorrow with a coat of Essie Raspberry before we head to College Station. Two of my fave fall colors!


THREE – This Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter on oats in the morning is my new favorite fall breakfast.  I’m enjoying it for the third time this week as I type.  So good!

FOUR – Sometimes I am just so wiped out at the end of a work day that the last thing I feel like doing is going outside and going for a walk.  I’m hoping living in a neighborhood soon will change that, as the area around our apartment is not super conducive for a nice evening walk.  But, last night I met my sister-in-law Casey at the Katy Trail, and we walked for almost two hours!  It was so nice to be outside (well it would have been nicer had it actually felt like fall!) and chat about our days.  We totally forgot to document our walk & talk with a picture, but it was a delightful way to spend the evening.   

FIVE – With the A&M game not even starting until 8:00 p.m. (BTHO Ole Miss!), we decided not to make the 3.5 hour drive back to Dallas after the game.  We are squeezing in a short trip to my parents’ house this weekend, and I’m so excited to see them!  My mom and I have lots of home catalogs to peruse, and I’m hoping she can help me make some decisions on rugs and other furniture that we’ll need soon. 



  1. Chinchilly is my favorite!!! Headed to get my nails done this AM and just might have to rock it again. :) And how sweet is that print?? My mom is in Dallas, and I miss her like crazy! Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. I've been wanting some pumpkin butter, I think I need to make a trip to TJ's this weekend! Love that Fall polish! Have a great weekend :)

  5. TJ's pumpkin butter is the best! And now I need to pick up the Chinchilly polish because is that not the perfect fall color?! Have so much fun this weekend!

  6. I'm totally hooked on that TJs pumpkin butter too, although it's hard to top my favorite fall purchase...the TJs pumpkin spice granola. If you haven't tried it, you will have to!
