Friday Five

It’s already Friday again! This week just got away from me and I truly need to get better about planning posts ahead of time. There is no excuses it is just that life happens.  I have been enjoying this taper week and getting in lots of long walks with Charlie. The parade of homes really sparked our interest in looking into more neighbor hoods nearby so after work we have been exploring new to us areas as a nightly ritual. Since it’s Friday, here are a few things I am loving this week. 

{One} Watching. Sometimes it is hard to find a new tv show that both Joe and I enjoy watching together. We have had good success with huge hit favorites like Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Lost and Homeland. But often when  we find a new fall series it gets canceled after the first few seasons.  Prime examples are Alcatraz and Last Resort. We often  joke that we should not get attached to a tv show because it will be canceled. I am hoping that Gotham is not one of those shows. I am not a huge comic fan but am really enjoying watching it with Joe and letting him fill me I on the development of certain characters. There is a good mix of action and drama each week which for me makes it a great couple’s show.

{Two} Drinking. It has officially turned fall here in NC and the cooler weather is here to stay. I get cold very easily so I always like to have a hot beverage on hand. My favorite is Trader Joe’s Vanilla and Cinnamon Black tea. It’s aroma is rich full of cinnamon notes. Black tea has the highest caffeine content compared to green or herbal tea so I enjoy it as an afternoon pick-me-up.

{Three} Wishlist Worthy.  I have been lusting after a scuba hoodie from Luluemon for years (think 5+). This is currently my incentive for myself to keep my diet on track. I am hoping I can eventually use some of my earnings from Pact to help purchase it! I earn about $1.50 a week so I have a ways to go! 

{Four} Currently Loving. Halloween costumes are popping up everywhere right now. Although we will not be dressing up this year I would die to see Charlie in this adorable costume!
Puppy Ewok

{Five} Coming Up. This weekend is packed to the brim with activities and fun times! I am excited to go to the State Fair Saturday and will be taking the chance to do a bit of carb loading for my race Sunday!! My go to every year at the fair is NC State university ice cream. I know this weekend will be a bit cold but am still looking forward to savoring every creamy bite! 

Linking up with Lauren ElizabethClareKarliAmanda & April .
