Five on Friday vol. 11 – 5 Things I’m Loving Lately

It’s *finally* Friday! This week has been a busy one between meetings, conference calls, Nick being out of town & an endless to-do list! I am so ready for the weekend because we have precisely zero plans other than watching Ohio State play on Saturday. After a few busy weekends and working on home projects, I am looking very forward to a relaxing weekend. What do y’all have planned? For today’s Five on Friday I’m sharing the five things I’m loving lately. Have a great weekend & thanks for stopping by!


one. Our Book Club

We had our monthly book club meeting on Wednesday night and we added fifteen (!!!) new faces to our group! It was so nice to meet new people (and blog readers!) and bond over books! For the longest time I had been searching for a book club and I’m so happy that I found one with such sweet people but that were also willing to add new faces! I’m telling ya, book people are the best people, simple as that!

two. Holiday Decorations

I know, I know. Most people think it’s too early to begin decorating, but I’m team decorate when you want to, and I like decorating a bit early! Sure, some of my reasoning for decorating early is because of holiday-themed collaborations but I also truly enjoy it. Since this is our first Christmas in our house I kind of jumped the gun and decorated last week. Rooms just feel so cozy with Christmas trees and those glowing lights!


three. Disney+

Anyone else get Disney+ this week?! I was so impressed with all of the selections, both movies and series, on the app! We have been binge watching non-stop since we got it! I love having all of the Disney movies readily available!

four. the color green

This fall I have been gravitating towards everything green! Chances are if it comes in green, I’m ordering it! I appreciate the fact that it can be paired with black, navy, and brown! See a few of my favorites below: 

five. Prepping for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays and I can’t wait to celebrate it in our home this year! A few nights ago we planned out our menu and I’m already mentally making room for all the food next week haha! We are also doing cocktails and apps at our house for people on Tuesday and I’m excited about that!

Have a great weekend, y’all
