Five on Friday

It's Friday and I've got food, more food, Halloween chit chat, and my favorite TV show to share with you on this edition of Five on Friday.

1. Have You Started Decorating for Fall?

So, I may have jumped the gun and started decorating for Fall and Halloween. This is a sneak peek of our mantle. I want to add a garland and play around with the setup a little more before showing you the finished product. I love it so far!

2. Little Miss Strawberry

Since we're on the subject, I found Miss A's Halloween costume yesterday!! It was a steal at Marshall's. I'm SO freaking excited for Halloween now. I can't wait for her to be a little strawberry!

3. I Love Cookbooks

I have a small collection of cookbooks and I'm always looking for more. I went to the library this week and discovered their HUGE cookbook aisle. I always forget that the library can be a great source to find new recipes. Here are a few I brought home with me. Have you used any of these? What are some of your favorite cookbooks?

No, I'm not going on a diet, but I looked through it at the library, lots of promising recipes here!

Rachael Ray's newest cookbook. I own two of hers and love them. It has more than just burgers- fries, sandwiches, and spreads. I can't wait to try something!

I know this is a favorite of many food bloggers, there are some mouthwatering pictures in this book!

I freaked out when I stumble across this one. Am I the only one who was not aware Panera had a cookbook?

4. Sorry, more food!

Every week I feel compelled to share with you my favorite food pins of the week. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, and a sweet treat!

5. Parenthood

Fall TV is almost here I can hardly wait for all my favorite shows to start back up. I think I'm most excited for Parenthood to begin again. There's just something about that show that I absolutely LOVE and I enjoy every single minute. I'm always so sad to see the end of an episode. Anyone else a Parenthood fan?

Have a great weekend!


  1. Well, thanks for making me HUNGRY! ;) Hehe! Every single one of those things looks so tasty.

    I love the little strawberry costume! Your little lady is going to be the cutest for Halloween! :)

    I can't wait for Parenthood to start back up!! My hubby and I both love that show.

    1. Thanks Katie! I'm so excited for Parenthood, I wait all summer for it to come back!

  2. Your decor looks FAB! And that halloween costume is just precious! Just stopped over from 5onF and can't wait to follow along to see A actually IN that!

    Don't miss our link party coming next week for our predictions into Miss A's future! It will be a great one to look back upon someday!

    Our Journey

    1. Thanks Sarah! I can't wait to see her as a little strawberry. :)

  3. I can't wait for Parenthood!! It's me and hubby's favorite show to watch together!! It's been off TV for too long, I've missed it!

  4. Is it Miss A's first Halloween? (or should i say, one she's participating in?) The costume is adorable! And it is never too early to decorate for anything :)


  5. Oh what a cute little strawberry she'll be! And I can't WAIT for the return of Parenthood…seriously counting down the days!


Thanks for stopping by!
