ONE. The Kaleidoscope of K-Cups
For all you Keurig K-Cup lovers out there, I just stumbled upon the greatest goody for this season...the Fall Flavors Coffee Variety Pack from Amazon. For $15, you get to sample 18 different, limited edition varieties-ranging from pumpkin spice to cinnamon roll. Perfect to try if you want to add something different to your morning coffee, but don't want to buy a box of one flavor. Sign me up!
TWO. Time for a Change??
I think it might be the right time for me to bite the bullet and take some length off my hair...no, I won't be doing a major chop anytime soon (for fear I would end up with the dreaded "mom cut") but I think I need a little fix-a-roo in the hair department. I've been browsing for some ideas and this is my fav. What do y'all think??
THREE. Gone Girl Review
Need a good read to add to your library?? Trust me on this one! I think a lot of you out there in blogging land have already read this page turner, but for others that haven't, Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl is a great read. It's not the normal ladylike book I normally buy, but it's dramatic, engaging, and keeps you hooked through the crazy events of a married couple and their unraveling relationship. You'll enjoy I promise!
FOUR...Inspirational Quotes
Lots of different topics on my mind this week. We've got a lot going on in the Stoneking residence these days--exciting things ahead--but it's been wearing on my heart a bit and I needed to see these reminders this morning. Hope they can benefit some of you, too ;)
FIVE...The BFF's Birthday Party
Tomorrow morning, I am headed east to visit my best friend Bev and celebrate her big 30th birthday!! We are set for a jam-packed weekend of fun and I am elated to get some much needed girl time with some of my nearest and dearest. Yes, you heard it correctly...my first overnight trip away from Carson AND Caroline and daddy is on babysitting duty (with assistance of course) while I'm gone. There might be late night dance parties and cocktails in my not too distant future-YIPPEE!!!

  20. I couldn't put down Gone Girl...didn't love the ending, but thought it was a great read. I'm chopping my hair off tomorrow....it'll be anything but a "mom cut" lol...I can't wait to have something a little fresher.

    I had no idea about that K-Cup sampler....that definitely is right up my alley...I hate when I have K-Cup buyer's remorse.

    Have a great weekend!

  24. Sweet friend, here's my main question ::::: how do you find time to READ??? ;) Just kidding - I guess I could fit it in too, but we've been spending 2 hours a night watching Breaking Bad. We're addicted. But, I so need to read. Ordering this book!

    Happy weekend, dear!!! Hugs to you and those angels!

  25. I've been hearing a lot about this book so I think it's time to check it out! And I love the quotes - think less, live more is something I am always reminding myself to do more of. Hope you're having a great weekend!

  27. I just got a different hairstyle look for the fall and you and I both have similar hair. My hairdresser knows I am afraid of change, but knew I wanted something different but didn't want to scare me! :) easily done with me. So in order to start the process of going a little darker(light brown), she put lowlights in the back and all the way up the sides, but left the front pcs lighter blond. Next time we will add a few more, and eventually I will have less blond for the fall/winter months. It looks really cute. www.coastalkel.com
