Five on Friday

Happy Friday! Are you as ready for the weekend as I am? I missed the link up last week and I'm happy to be joining up again. 

1. "And we'll never be royals..."

Have you heard the song called "Royals"? It's sung by this girl, Lorde, and I'm obsessed. If it comes on as I'm pulling into the driveway, you bet I'm going to sit in the car until it's over singing my heart out. 

2. Witches of East End

Do you watch Lifetime? Normally, I don't, but lately the network has been producing new TV shows that aren't half bad. I watched Devious Maids in the summer and now I'm hooked on Witches of East End. I was pleasantly surprised that it's pretty good!

3. Easy Weeknight Meal

As you know I'm always on the lookout for quick, easy weeknight meals. I had several new recipes on my menu plan this week and was disappointed by many of them. I hate it when that happens. But these enchiladas were a hit! I swapped out the chicken for shrimp and the hubby and I really liked them. What have you liked recently?

4. Cute Halloween Treats

I love being festive for every holiday, but there's something about Halloween that makes it so much fun. With tons of Halloween treats floating around on the web right now, I thought I'd show you some of my favorites. I mean, look how cute Minnie and Mickey are!!

5. Spooky Reads

Keeping in spirit, my friend, and soon to be published author (eeek!) Beth shared a list of her favorite spooky reads this week and I checked out two at the library. What are you reading?
