Five on Friday!

Hi friends and happy Friday! After talking with the girls last night we realized that this is our 22nd edition of Five on Friday Link-up! We have enjoyed it so much and can't thank everyone enough for linking up with us each week. It has been so fun getting to know so many of you!
 
- ONE - Ever since I moved to Charlotte I have been a total scarf addict. In 4 years I've accumulated over 40 scarves. In fact, if I bring home one more scarf I think Matt will kick me out of the house. So with so many scarves I was finding it harder and harder to keep them organized...until I read a post earlier this week by Honey We're Home on Organized Scarves. Before I could finish the post I had already purchased two Belt & Tie Hangers from Amazon at $10.99 each. The next day they arrived {i love you, Amazon Prime} and my closet has been changed forever!
 Each hanger holds 14 scarves each.
 - TWO - My new favorite peanut butter. Only 100 calories per serving and it tastes delicious! All week I've been packing PBJ's because I am addicted!
- THREE - Remember my lemon tree I posted about awhile ago? Well, we finally have some lemons!
  And they are sweet Myer Lemons - the best kind!
- FOUR - Our mums are looking better than ever right now on our front porch. All I need is a few more pumpkin and we are set!
- FIVE - On the books this weekend: cook my first batch of Black Bean Chili, have the girls over for wine while the boys play poker, make a quick trip to Winston to spend time with Matt's family and get a hair cut! Should be a great weekend!
Happy Weekend, Friends!

  8. I recently just organized my scarves on some pant hangers. Much nicer than the over-the-door hanging rack they used to be on. I like those hangers though, should my collection keep growing! That black bean chili looks amazing...sooooo yummy. I'm preggers and I've been craving anything Mexican related...lol. www.styleoyster.blogspot.com

  12. I have a haircut happening this weekend too and I am SO looking forward to a little freshening up! The scarf organization sounds like a brilliant idea. I tried something similar once with shower curtain rings and it was useless because they moved all over the place. I'll have to try this instead!

  13. Ooooh! Thanks for the scarf hanger tip - I fell in love with scarves last year and mine are all cluttering my back-of-the-door hook.

  14. I'm guilty of having one too many scarves, too. I think it's because they're such a cheap accessory and can add so much to an outfit. I have mine hanging on an over-the-door organizer much like that one, but am considering switching to those hangers after ready Megan's post this week. Glad to hear they got another endorsement. Your porch looks fabulous and so inviting! Have a great weekend.

  21. The mums look lovely! And belt/tie hangers are great. You can use them for a number of different purposes.

  22. Too funny, as I was reading your post ... I was eating my PB&J with that exact peanut butter. I have been eating it for years and love, love it. I can't justify all of the calories for regular peanut butter so this is the best!

    Enjoy your weekend, sounds like it will be fun. :)

  28. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who is in jeopardy of being kicked out of the house by the husband over a scarf collection. Phew!

    PS: MEYER LEMONS, I am so so so jealous! I was over at a girlfriend's house last night and her lemon tree is doing great, too. She said she would make preserved lemons and share some with me :)
