Five on Friday!

Sorry I’ve been MIA this week. I am still trying to catch up from vacation and we are leaving in just a few hours for a wedding weekend in Worcester, Massachusetts. So let’s get right down to it!

– ONE – I’ve been loving this little reminder in our house. However, I am getting antsy to switch it over to my fall design. Any cute fall chalk art recommendations?

– TWO – I was recently contacted by the coolest company ever to review a product – Good Day Dog, a monthly dog collar subscription where each month customers receive a new collar based on a trend or time of year. This is probably one of the coolest ideas I’ve heard in a long time so I immediately said YES, please!! I was so excited when Charlie’s collar arrived {and so was he}! In addition to the adorable packaging, we received a pirate themed collar for summertime! How cute is that!? If you want to learn more about how the collar subscription works {CLICK HERE}.

– THREE – Our fridge is officially stocked with pumpkin beer! I am so giddy about all fall that I am totally embracing it already, even if it’s 80 degrees out still.

– FOUR – I finished The Glass Castle on vacation! Although it wasn’t my typical read and I’ve never really been interested in memoirs, I decided to go out on a limb and try it! So glad I did. It was so interesting and I finished it in two days! I give it 3.5 stars!

And now I am racing to finish Beautiful Creatures so I can hurry up and rent it on Redbox! I am obsessed and although I have 100 pages left, I give it 4 stars! I am hoping to finish it on the plane today. If you like Harry Potter or Twilight, this book is for you!!

 – FIVE – The Skimm. Okay, I stole this one from April’s last five. But what she {and Two Delighted} said is SO true and everyone should sign up. The Skimm is a daily newsletter that hilariously summarizes all of the big headlines for the day in just a few sentences. I love the writing style so much that I actually enjoy reading about headline news that otherwise I’d never click on. You can sign up {here}.

Happy Weekend!

    Have fun at your wedding! That collar is a great idea but gosh, that would be a LOT of collars. Buddy mainly wears Bella Bean harnesses and that's it 🙂

    Yay! I LOVE the mix and match Pumpkin Beers! We've been waiting for World Market to get theirs in so we can pick some up! Love that collar idea too, so cute!

    A pirate collar, how cute is that?! I think I may need to add those books to my "to read" list!

    I went to college in Worcester! If you need a good breakfast spot there are tons of diners (they used to build diner cars there so a lot of them stayed local), or a personal favorite of mine is Bagel Time on Park Ave.

    As someone who recommended The Glass Castle, I totally agree. I never read memoirs. I picked it up bc the author lives in my hometown, but I loved it. I have one of her other books sitting in my pile to read. Love the collar subscription idea! And I signed up for the Skim too!

    I read the Glass Castle for a freshman seminar, and although memoirs aren't my thing I loved it too! It was also nice the author came to our university and spoke about the book. Glad you enjoyed it! 🙂

    First and foremost – I really and truly believe that the four of us would be the very best of friends if we could all just live in the same damn city! 😉 Seriously though, after stopping by each of your blogs, I'm reminded of this again all the time. So much in common and y'all just make me smile! I LOVE your chalkboard. Perfection!And I completely agree about the Skimm! I signed up last week too after April recommended it and am loving it!Safe travels, dear and have a fun weekend!

    I want that pirate dog collar! First, I need a dog, I just have to wait a few more months.I have been reading the Beautiful Creatures series and I really like them. I am waiting for Book 3 to come now. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with the movie. They completely changed the story and left out characters, so just keep that in mind when you watch it. I still watched the movie and everything, but I was sort of mad about it. I am used to movies leaving parts out, but I have never seen them completely rewrite the story.Enjoy the rest of the series! I couldn't put it down!

    Love that dog collar idea, and the packaging is precious! I just love it when a company goes the extra mile. And can I just say I love that you get your books from the library. I'm a huge fan of our library, and I'm always trying to turn people on to the concept. Save travels and have a blast at the wedding!

    Girl I am from Mass, and you NEED to check out the Wrentham outlets since you'll be in that part of the state. You may be about 45 minutes away, but totally worth it! Here's a link to the list of stores they have; you may want to pack an extra suitecase 😉

    Pumpkin beer, YES! And so glad you are loving The Skimm … I have definitely been known to brag to Ian about how much I now know about what's going on in the world. Sometimes I quiz him. 🙂

    You will love the Beautiful Creatures movie! We rented it a few months ago, and I had no idea it was a book until after I had watched it. And I love your chalkboard art. Is there a tutorial on how to do that? I am so not artistic, so I am sure mine would be a total mess 🙂

    I blogged about fall chalk art on my five on Friday. 🙂 I signed up for The Skimm too and love it! My hubby is a big follower of all things politics and I feel like I can at least keep up with the conversation now.
