Friday Favorites 11.7.14

I almost feel like I have lost an entire week, or maybe an entire month really. At the beginning of the week I was shaking my head that Halloween was over and it was November. Now I am looking at the date realizing a week has already flown by. I know I have been a bit of a zombie this week. We had a BUSY weekend and this has been a re-coop/ transitional week for me. But if things don't slow down it feels like Christmas will be over before I know it. 

Anyone else?!

With that said let's move onto this weeks Friday Five!

{ONE} Halloween 2014

Halloween was a blast this year. We had a fun filled day including leaf jumping, pizza and trick or treating leaving our candy stash well stocked for MONTHS.

This years costumes were Minnie Mouse, AGAIN!

And my beautiful butterfly.

{TWO} Christmas Link Up!

Wednesday I dished the details on a Christmas countdown link-up that I am co-hosting. This is my first time to co-host a link up and I couldn't be more excited

Get the details and mark your calendars to join us starting November 26th!

{THREE} I Can Relate.

Courtney from A Plus Life has my sense of humor down to a T. She often sends me "funnies" on Pinterest that leave me in pain from laughing.

Like a photo of a giraffe asking if it is too tall to wear heels.
Stand on something and tell me to my face!

Tall girl humor at it's best right there. I don't often rock a pair of heels but when I do I am proud of how tall they make me. I once had a lady make a snarky comment to me while I was trying on some heels. Next time I will remember this advice and reply, HA!

{FOUR} Half Marathon #2

Sunday I ran the Bass Pro Cohick 13.1 and it was awesome! You can check out yesterdays race re-cap if you want to get the details. 

This half felt a bit harder than the last one for some reason. But it was just as rewarding when I finished. 

This week also marked my one year anniversary of being in half marathon training which totaled out to 630 miles ran in one year. I am so excited to just run for fun for the next 3 months before attempting half marathon #3 & #4. 

{FIVE} Christmas Pallet Sign

Several weeks ago I did a tutorial on making a pallet sign and made up a fall sign for our gallery wall. Sadly fall is just about over and I am starting to make plans for Christmas sign. Here are a few choices that have caught my eye. 

Oh Come Let Us Adore Him

Which one would you pick?

Linking up with



Have a great weekend and we'll see you back here on Monday!

  4. i pick Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas! congratulations on the half!!

    1. It seems to be a winner among my friends. I will probably go that route and then paint one of the others and hang it up somewhere else! You can never have to many Christmas decorations!

  7. My jealousy of your access to pallets is still going strong. :)
    Between the three, 1 and 3 are my favorites. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
