Five on Friday

I am so happy to see Friday after a very hectic week!  Our weekend is going to be filled with Oktoberfest, football, and some homemade pumpkin soup; I am really looking forward to it!  As usual, I'm linking up with Darci and the girls for Five on Friday.  Here's my random five things for this week:

It seems like there are free desktop wallpapers all over the place these days, and I am lovin' it.  They just make sitting down at the computer that much more enjoyable.  Right now there are so many choices that I can change it daily with my mood.  My newest favorites are from Sugar Paper; they have twelve you can choose from and they work for your computer or your phone.  You can find them here.  This one is my personal favorite:

Now that Fall has officially arrived, I am making my house as cozy as possible!  This includes the use of numerous candles!  I love having seasonal scents filling the house and the warm glow they put off.  I've always been partial to tea lights and glassybaby make my favorite holders.  They just happen to be a local Seattle company (apparently I still think Seattle is my "local"), but you can also buy them at Nordstrom (my other love).  These adorable pieces make great gifts, which you should keep in mind with Christmas just right around the corner!

 This week I officially became the owner of a Salt Lake County library card... talk about exciting stuff!  But seriously!  I have taken Liam to story time since he was about 6 months old, but we never spent time looking through the huge selection of children's books until this week.  My little L absolutely loves books, so we spent quite a bit of time at the library.  This will be a great outing for us once the snow is here, and we aren't spending as much time outside.  Liam loved lounging on the comfy seats and being able to choose his own books from the shelves.  We brought a few home with us as well, and they have quickly become his new favorites.  His love for books makes me so happy; it will be a hobby we both share!

Football season is here and better than ever (both my Huskies & Seahawks were looking awesome last weekend)!  While I only manage to watch about half the game (or less) while I'm chasing around a toddler, I still love all the excitement surrounding the sport.  For those of you that feel a little behind on the sport of football, you must check out my friend Shannon's blog!  It's the perfect girls guide to sports and will give you some fun stats and tidbits to throw out during game time.  :-)

The days of being able to eat all sorts of candy & treats in front of Liam are officially over!  I don't know what my sweet tooth is going to do!  I had to say good bye to the bowl of candy corn sitting out on the bar, and I now have to be extra sneaky when putting some candy in my grocery cart.  The car has become the only safe place I can enjoy a splurge in peace... thank goodness for rear facing!  

 Enjoy the weekend everyone!
