5 on Friday

So happy to link back up with The Good Life, A. Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm and Hello! Happiness for Five on Friday.

I totally woke up with a sore throat today.  Not happy about that. I hope it's not from sleeping with the windows open. That's the best part about fall in Arizona. 

Thank goodness, Sofia ended up with all A's on her report card. It was not easy and we had several "discussions" about her school habits but she managed to bring all her grades up to mid-upper "A" status. Her iPad will live to see another day!

I am loving this show!  It's my new way to pass time while I am doing cardio at the gym! I'm actually glad I'm not watching it at home. Makes working out more fun!

I wish I never knew about the Pioneer Woman's apples dumplings. These have ruined my diet this week. Ruined. But if you haven't tried these (and your diet allows them) make then NOW!

Honey's birthday is coming up soon and I have no idea what to buy him. What do you buy the man who has everything, keeps everything and buys whatever he wants when he wants it. It's so hard! I've got one gift so far and we are going out of town. Of course he ended up planning the weekend as a fluke kinda. It came together really quickly and we will be headed to Nebraska for a football game and to visit his old home town. It's gonna be cold. What will I wear?  I'm thinking jeans and a pretty sweater and boots to game with a scarf and jacket. Clearly the sweater will need to be red. For the night before, when we go to dinner, I'm thinking red and black chevron dress with black knee boots? Something like this? Thoughts?

Big plans for the weekend? We've got soccer, an Oktoberfest, football and maybe a hike! Happy Fall Y'all!

I think the chevron dress will be perfect for date night! But Nebraska??

Congrats Sofia on the grades!! This mama knows all too well the struggle!! lol!

If you liked PW's apple thingies, you need to make that other apple recipe I made about two weeks ago. Can't remember the name of it, but it was even better!! I'm making Snicker Apple Caramel pie next week!!

Have a great weekend and Roll Tide!!
