Five on Friday!

Happy Friday, friends! Thank you so much to all of you who linked up with us last week! It's been one heck of a week and I am so thankful it's finally FRIDAY! I have a girlfriend coming into town this weekend and am pumped for a girl's night out. Also hoping to bake up a few fall treats.

Let's get down to it!
 
- ONE - We brought home a few pumpkins from the patch last weekend and I decided to "decorate" them a bit differently this year. Matt's idea was to carve one of them out and take pictures of Caroline sitting inside (hmmm, secretly surfing Pinterest?). Anyways, I quickly recommended a far less messy idea - wrap them in fishnet stockings and call it a day. I think they look so cool and it took me less than 1 minute to decorate them. Oh, and I didn't have to scoop out goo. Win!
 
You can find my painted pumpkin tutorial {here}.
- TWO - We were BOOED this week! My neighborhood is so fun and there are always little pranks going on year-round. A few weeks ago there was a giant stuffed animal being moved from porch to porch as a joke and it was so funny to see it circulate the neighborhood. So it came as no surprise when I arrived home from work to find I was booed!
Want to boo someone in your neighborhood? Get the game going by downloading the printables {here}!
For my turn to boo some neighbors I picked up some mini Halloween cupcakes. I really wanted to make pumpkin dip for my treat but since the gifts are supposed to be left anonymously Matt said that would be super weird.
- THREE - Since these pretty much only happen now when the paint has completely chipped off my toes I thought it was important to document my solo pedicure date last weekend.
- FOUR - Our teachers at daycare send us pictures often throughout the day of Caroline and this week we received one of my favorites - Caroline passed out from her buggy ride (and can we please talk about how she's sucking her thumb these days!?!?!).
- FIVE - Remember the amazing giveaway we announced last week!? The contest is officially OPEN!

  12. adore that idea of "boo-ing" someone! We live in a neighborhood where we are the youngest by about 30 years haha so our interactions with the neighbors are fairly limited though!

  13. I love your Five this week!! Our neighbors were Boo'd and I had never even heard of it before - such a fun idea!! That pedi makes me feel like venturing out to get one soon :) How sweet does Caroline look in that picture, I love it!

  14. I love the Boo'd game...so fun! Caroline is so cute...I call that thing the Cry-Mobile because kids are usually screaming and crying while on it whenever I see one. It's sort of sad but funny...lol. I'm a mom of 3, so I'm allowed to say that.

We actually just moved from AZ to Charlotte, NC (we're in Matthews) 6 weeks ago! So far, I love it. We're just in an apartment now but I can't wait until we buy a house!! We explore neighborhoods weekly and every single one of them seem spectacular. I don't know how I'm ever going to decide lol! Hope you have a nice weekend!! :)
