Five on Friday...Boo to You!

Friday, October 31, 2014

Another weekly installment of my favorite time to ramble on about anything and everything...cheers to another Fun Five on Friday party!
ONE. Piko Shirts for the Low
If you're like me and LOVE Piko (AKA the sofest/stretchiest/best staple ever) shirts, look no farther than a new best friend/website I found for purchasing these tried and true basics that are so comfortable you'll want to sleep in them...and yes, I might have done that before, so no judgment please. Look HERE to stock up on your favorite colors and various styles and for only $20, you can get all the colors you need to fill up the closet. My favorite is the Long Sleeve Top and I already have them in grey, black, red, and dark grey. (FYI, for sizing, I wear a small)
TWO. Ikea Love...But Local
I wanted to purchase this lovely Ikea table for a local shopping event I have coming up for Sugar Bit (details on that next week), but of course I couldn't order it online, nor would the closest store (Atlanta) hold it for me long enough to drive down there and get it. That's when I looked to ModerNash, which is a local business who drives to Ikea each week, makes custom orders for people, and then brings them back. Then, they call you to let you know it's in their warehouse, you pick it up, and then you can go about your merry way. Genius, right?? They do charge a minimal markup, but to save me the hassle of driving to ATL and making my way through the overwhelmingly huge Ikea store, that fee was well worth it. Big win in my book AND they have popular items already in stock. No, I was not paid to say this...this is my honest opinion from a very happy customer.
THREE. Favorite New Fall Appetizer
You only use a total of 4 ingredients, so this is something ANYONE can make. Even better, the ingredients come already packaged, so hello EASY PEASY! I'm  making these tonight and tomorrow so I hope friends and family love them as much as I do...Sausage Crescent Bites. YUMMY!
FOUR. Workouts...Or Lack Thereof
I've told you before I get lazy when fall rolls around...lazy in the working out department, but not so lazy when it comes to eating and baking. That's why I have started this Everyday Wake-up Workout. This is something I can tackle as soon as my feet hit the ground and before two little munchkins start screaming for some attention. Even better, I don't need any weights/mats/machinery to get this knocked off my to-do list. It may not be much, but anything is better than nothing!
FIVE. Wallpaper Love
I think I'm becoming addicted to wallpaper...and it makes me laugh thinking about all that heinous wallpaper I saw everywhere growing up and saying "I will never have wallpaper"...adulthood strikes again my dears! I already have it in our powder room downstairs and a few have already been pinned for future reference because I can't get enough. And P.S. if you don't like it, that's fine, too.
(hoping this will make its way into CC's big girl room design)
That completed this week's Five on Friday tour from me. Be sure to stop by April, Christina, and Darci's spaces to pay them a little visit, too and linkup below so we can see all your frightful, festive goodies! Happy Halloween to ALL of you friends out there...hope the ghouls and goblins let you enjoy some of their candy ;)

  1. I love Piko tops! So comfy! And those wallpaper options are so pretty! My contractor friend said wallpaper is really in right now, like every condo they do in downtown Chicago people want wallpaper. So funny because I was the same way thinking I would never want it!

  3. Loving the piko tops - and the prices on the ones that you shared! Quick question - I normally wear a small, but am tall (5'7) and want to make sure they are long enough. Is the small pretty long on you? I know you are more petite, so if the small is just the right length on you, I may have to go to a medium!

  5. I am obsessed with Pikos. I have them in just about every color as well...they are such a staple item that can be worn in so many ways!

    And am LOVING your wallpaper choices. I would wallpaper every room in my house if I could. And I totally was a snob about it when I was younger too. LOL.
