Five on Friday

It's time for Five on Friday! I'm linking up with Christina and the girls. This week completely went away from me. I can't believe we're already almost at the end of September!
1. Cute Journals

Yesterday I went to Barnes and Noble and fell in love with all their beautiful journals. I've kept a journal since I was in the sixth grade. Journaling has always been very therapeutic for me, although when I started keeping a journal it was to write about the cute boys I liked in class. ;) As I've gotten older I've written less and less in my journal. That's something I'm working on because I really do like to look back and see what was going on in my life and to reflect. Do you keep a journal?

2. Fall Porches

Have you decorated your porch for Fall yet? I haven't! I recently finished the inside of our home and now I'll get to working on the outside. I love decorating with pumpkins and mum's. I'm thinking of getting yellow mum's this year, I usually get purple or another deep color. I really like the bright colors this year.

3. Favorite Food Pins

There's always so much to choose from every week, here are a few of my favorite food pins!

Slow-cooker Pulled Pork with Apples and Onions

4. $300 Jewelry Giveaway

Are you more of an earrings, bracelet, rings, or necklace kind of girl? I like bracelets and earrings more myself. Have you had a chance to enter my giveaway yet? You have until October 6th to do so! There are so many beautiful items to choose from, take a look at the Mialisia website. This necklace is my absolute favorite! 
5. Family

I'm so excited to have some of our family here in the coming weeks. With our families living a 12 hour drive away, we don't get to see each other very often. You'd think after five years of living so far away, you'd get used to it, but I never do. My dad will be coming for a visit and so will my in-laws. I can't wait!

Have a great weekend!


  1. So happy that your family is coming to visit you!!! I'm off to the store today to get my mums, I'm going with yellow this year too! Happy Friday. Your giveaway order is on my list this weekend!

  2. I need to get my fall porch together asap! Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Decorating for fall is my favorite part. I love the colors. It's a little hard to really enjoy it since we are in Texas and its still in the 90's!

    Have a good weekend :)

  4. The journals are seriously cute! I wish I had more time and energy to do so many things and journaling would be one of them. I guess our blogs are that in a way, but there is so much you really want to share on a public blog, right?

    Have a great weekend with your family!

  5. Hi Christina! Thank you so much for your sweet comment over at my post on SAHMs and people thinking we're unproductive.

    I too am a 12-hour drive for family and have been this way for 5+ years! It's not fun, is it? Enjoy having family in town!

  6. I am loving the look of Mums this year! Nothing I've done before, but I've been keeping my eye on the huge pots of them at Costco. Maybe this weekend I'll finally add some to our porch!

    Also, that pulled pork with apples & onions looks delicious! Might have to try it!


Thanks for stopping by!
