Five on Friday

It's Friday, y'all know how we do.

Almost here...just a few more days until T-Day.  Starting with the Macy's parade and ending with a nap before an all night shopping bender.  We are celebrating with my family this year and I simply can not be more excited! I'm making a Snickers Cheesecake dessert as well as a classic Chess Pie for the big day.  I can't wait to lapse into mashed potato coma while R is outside shooting.  Thanksgiving was made for preggo girls!

And moving on to our dog's Thanksgiving dinner.  Our sweet girl came to us from the rescue on a grain free diet that we have continued.  However she was having chronic yeast infections in her ear so we have switched her over to a potato free diet as well.  This brand was recommended on so many message boards for helping with systemic yeast that we decided to give it a go.  I'm happy to report that Lady has had fewer problems with her ears and she smells better overall.  Bonus: we order from Chewy and they deliver it for free to our home in 2 days.

This nail color.  I've been wearing it for weeks and it's the perfect shade of dark cherry red with a creamy formula that only requires two thin coats.  I love it for Fall and it will transition perfectly into Winter.

Cocoa.  Since I can't have an afternoon cocktail or a weekend spritzer this is my nightcap of choice.  And I'm a really picky cocoa drinker, most brands have no flavor but this is really delicious.  It's even better with marshmallows, but we are all out right now.  #sosad
Project for Baby Girl's room.  R worked on this ruler for her wall and I love it!  We took inspiration here and I ordered a vinyl pack on groupon from this seller.  The first pack had several pages of vinyl that would not peel off the paper, I contacted her and she sent out a new pack ASAP.  It's so cute I can't get over it. Our little nugget is only about 12 inches long now but eventually we will be able to mark her height here.

Linkups galore, join one, join all!


  1. Have you tried the Starbucks hot chocolate mixes? Those are some of my favorite! I'd totally be indulging in some myself, except at 32 weeks or so I failed my glucose test so I have gestational diabetes. Thankfully mine isn't that bad, but it definitely takes a lot of the fun out of pregnancy eating. Although I've already decided I'm basically giving myself a free pass on Thanksgiving!

    1. Oh I may have to try those. I take my test in January and I'm a bit nervous about it. I didn't have many sugar cravings until recently. I can't stay away from orange juice though.
