Friday Five (10)


So, I was all about the "Friday Five" during the summertime and I posted my Friday favorites religiously, but now that fall is upon us, I will be posting my "Friday Five" a little bit more sporadically.   Let me know what you think!


1.  National Novel Writing Month - It's that time of year again! I always try my hand at this arduous task and have only "won" one year out of the many years I have tried.  I was thrilled to have reached the 50,000 word goal last year and I believe it was due to my planning before the actual start of NaNoWriMo. I am hoping this year I can do the same. *fingers crossed*  Anyone else participating? If so, find me on there! My username is Chris327. 



2. Happy Halloween - Halloween is so much more fun now that my son is getting into it and of course, he wants candy. He is going to be Tigger this year and loves his costume. I hope everyone has a great Halloween and eats a lot of chocolate…that's what I'll be doing!


3. Winter Village Plates and Mugs - Guys, I am obsessed with these plates and mugs. My mom had mugs like this when I was little and I loved them. They were my favorite mugs to sip hot chocolate from, so I when I saw their look-alikes at Pottery Barn, I knew I had to have them. Plus, proceeds from the plates and mugs go to charity!


4. Highclere Castle Tea Cup - My tea cup and saucer arrived from Highclere Castle. It was pretty cool to see a package on my doorstep with a return address of Highclere.  I love this tea cup and have it proudly displayed.  Is it tea time yet?


5.  Rosemary Chicken Wings - I love Buffalo Wings, but let's be honest, they aren't exactly the healthiest.  So, I am always on the hunt for alternatives and these are my new favorites. This recipe is so good and I have already made it a few times.  It goes great with a side of football. 

I hope everyone has a great Friday and Happy Halloween!

  1. Good luck with NaNoWriMo! Several of my coworkers are writers and they participate too.I hope you "win" this year!

    Happy Halloween! I am glad your son is old enough to really get into the fun this year. I hope you will post a picture of him in his costume :)

    I love the tea cup and the winter village set. I wanted a winter village when I was a kid. Will you use the tea cup or is it for display? I am always nervous about using more delicate cups. My tea cup is very sturdy from a stoneware set of plates my parents have. It can take quite a beating :)

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Christina! I haven't prepared as much as last year, so I am not sure about how I'll do. We will see! About the tea cup, I think I may display it only; with my luck, I'd break it and then be so mad at myself. :) Thanks for visiting, Christina!

  4. Oh, I LOVE this pattern on the plates from Pottery Barn, Christina - those are precious! Also, I can't believe you just received a tea cup and saucer from Highclere Castle - WOW! That is so fun! Umm, yes, I think it is DEFINITELY tea time, my lady! Tigger is one of my favorite characters of all time; I hope your son has a fantastic Halloween! Oh, and thank you for sharing this recipe; it looks amazing!

    1. Thanks so much, Tara! I hope you have a great Halloween too. I was so happy my son wanted to be Tigger, because he's one of my faves as well. :) Thanks for visiting!

  5. I definitely want to do NaNo sometime, but this isn't the month. Good luck! Also, those plates are beyond adorable. Where did you find them? I hope you guys had fun trick or treating. He looked really cute in the picture you posted!

    1. You should definitely try NaNo….maybe in the summer once you are off. I hope teaching is going well….I love to read your updates. It reminds me so much of my first year. I found the plates at Pottery Barn. I knew I had to have them before they sold out. And about my son…thank you! We had a blast Trick-or-Treating! Happy Halloween!
