I can’t believe it has been an entire month since I have done a Five on Friday post (with with Darci, April, Christina and Natasha)! I love these posts, because it gives me a good chance to chitchat about what is going on in my neck of the woods.
I hope everyone had a delicious and grand time yesterday for Thanksgiving. I know we have all stuffed our tummies full, but if you are curious what our menu looked like on Thanksgiving you can find it HERE.
Now, are you ready for my Friday Five?
1. Fall 30×30 Giveaway – I am participating in the Fall 30×30 Challenge this month and some of us decided to host a $50.00 giveaway to a gift card of your choice to either
Target, Old Navy/Gap, Loft, or Forever 21! Please click HERE to check out the outfits I remixed during week 3 of the challenge from 30 items of clothes that I am wearing exclusively for 30 days!
2. Christmas/Crafting and Elfie! – I haven’t shared many crafts on here and I apologize for that. However, that will be changing SOON… I have several Christmas crafts and decor ideas to share with you during the weeks leading up to Christmas. I am hoping to share at least one or two per week. AND, I am still working on decorating the Master Bathroom and hope to share the monogrammed canvas with you next week. Today I am working on getting the tree up, I feel I am the last one to get it up with all of the beautiful Christmas tree photos I have seen on Instragram lately. I hope everyone else is having fun with their Christmas decor and crafts!
Also, Elfie is planning to make a grand entrance later today! He is also bringing a very special surprise for my daughter… she will just flip when she finds out! Stay tuned for some Elfie updates.
3. Freezer Meal Stash
Have you been trying to make meals easier at your house? I have! I have decided to start posting one freezer meal every month. Last time I made breakfast burritos (microwave for 1.5 min and ready to eat!) and out of the 12 I made, we only have 3 left! This month I am planning on another breakfast type meal that freezes easily, but it can also be a dinner meal. If this continues to be popular, I am planning on making it into a monthly link up party! Then, you’ll get several freezer meal ideas each month!
4. Stitch Fix in November
This month, I received my second Stitch Fix box full of 5 clothing items. I really loved the box I got last time and this time I loved everything except for the cardi they sent me. I would love for you to come over and see (click HERE to go to the post) which item I fell in love with and decided to purchase on the spot and the other items I liked a lot, but sent back. It is always so much fun to see what everyone gets in their Stitch Fix boxes, myself included! 😉
5. Captain Underpants
Nathan is in 2nd grade and he has really gotten interested in reading on his own lately. He is in love with the Captain Underpants book series… I am so excited that he is starting to build a foundation for a love of reading, hopefully he will continue to read into his adulthood like his Mom and Dad! The boy has FOUR Captain Underpants books now… and is BEGGING for me to make this explosive recipe this weekend. Do I DARE?!!
