Five on Friday

The weekend is here!  No need for small talk today, let's just get down to my Five on Friday.  Thanks to Darci and the girls for hosting:
-ONE-
This week I gave into my sweet tooth with these Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds (wow that was a mouthful, literally) from Trader Joe's.  They are to die for!  My friend Victoria put them in my cart and MADE me purchase them!  She told me that when she has a sugar craving she eats two and they are perfect... Eats TWO?!  Who can only eat two?!  I ate the whole container in 3 days!


-TWO-
Many shows returned to the TV schedule this week along with a couple new promising ones.  While New Girl is one of our absolute favorites, Conor & I are both hooked on Blacklist already!  I'm not a huge James Spader fan, but I think he did an incredible job in this role.  (Confession:  I'm particularly excited for Hart of Dixie to return!)

 
 -THREE-
With the cooler temperatures officially here (and dropping quickly), we are starting to focus on more house projects.  Painting the inside of our house is a top priority for me, because I am tired of the same color on every wall.  For our bedroom we are using Benjamin Moore Conventry Gray, and we will be painting the kitchen/family room Benjamin Moore Storm (which we used in our Seattle house and absolutely loved)!  These two shades are actually much different in person; the conventry gray is way lighter.  I know gray is trendy right now, but I think it looks so simple and classy with our white trim and white cabinets.


 -FOUR-
I had a huge Target score this week!  While giving the dollar section a quick peak, I found this adorable divided plate!  The owl & turkey were too cute to pass up.  Liam will be enjoying all his meals on this for the rest of the Fall season!  I even bought two matching bowls as well.  Although the plate is extremely cheap plastic (and definitely not BPA free), it was worth it for only a dollar!


 -FIVE-
I bought new glasses for the 1st time in 10 years this week!  My eyes have been so dry since we moved to Utah, so I needed an updated pair of glasses for when I want to give my eyes a rest from my contacts.  I wanted something big & bold (very unlike my old pair)...  I am so happy with my choice and love how I'm now totally nerding out!


 Enjoy this last weekend of September!  Next month will bring 
even colder weather and Halloween shows (and candy) galore!

  3. I love those Target plates and they're probably fine to use as long as you don't heat them in the microwave right? I sure hope so! We have hem for a few different seasons.

    The glasses look great on you!

    1. Thanks! I'm not too worried about the Target plates... definitely no microwave and I would do the dishwasher either since they tend to get so hot.

  5. Those almonds are the best! If you want a really amazing wine pairing that my friend abd I accidentally discovered try the Conundrum red blend. I think they sell it at the 3rd and 3rd wine store. And I'm totally with you in being excited about the return of Hart of Dixie.

  7. I'm also very excited for Heart of Dixie. It's such a cute show!

    I love that Target plate, I'm a sucker for all their seasonal stuff. And their dollar area is so awesome. Also, I think white and grey is such a classy combo, I bet your kitchen and bedroom will look amazing.

    1. Glad I'm not the only Hart of Dixie fan out there! My husband think it's the most ridiculous show if he ever catches me watching it!
