High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, people!

Did anybody else experience their first snowfall this week? There was a huge snowstorm north of us where Ryan’s family lake house is, but luckily we only experienced flurries around here. I don’t think I am quite ready for the snow and frigid temps yet.
With Ryan working this weekend, it’s bound to be a productive one for me between packing, holiday shopping and computer stuff. 
Wherever you are and whatever plans that you have, I hope that you have a great weekend! Here’s a quick recap of my week. 

1. We’ve made good headway on packing up the house. Our family room and office pretty much is in boxes, with the exception of items that we need to keep out until the last possible moment. It’s hard to believe that our closing date is three weeks from today!
2. I was so excited to learn that I won Mia’s recent nail polish giveaway from Pure Ice. I received my pack of polishes this week, and I can’t wait to play around with the different colors. The pale pink and sparkly ones are calling my name. 

3. Earlier in the week, Ryan and I decided to get a Redbox movie and we went with Chef. Has anyone else seen this movie? If you haven’t, go get it now! It’s one of the most original and best movies that we’ve seen all year. It’s an upbeat and enjoyable movie – just make sure that you eat before watching it. It will make you hungry and/or inspire you to go to culinary school to become a chef. Just sayin’. 
4. I had a ridiculous amount of coupons for Kohl’s, so Ryan and I took advantage on his day off to get some shopping done. Along the way, this adorable red hat caught my eye. I’ve never owned a hat like this, but now I’m pretty much in love with it. 

5. These posts wouldn’t be complete now without a photo of Finley, right? He graduated from puppy class Monday! We still have a lot of work to do – training really never stops when it comes to dogs – but the class was helpful, and he has made a lot of progress.

    Love love loooove the hat! So cute and perfect for winter! Have you gotten any snow yet? We're getting up to 10 inches here tonight! And oh, Finn – so sweet. We're starting Brady in puppy class soon and I can't wait!

    So jealous that you won that fantastic giveaway…so awesome! And that hat seriously could not be anymore adorable πŸ™‚

    You will LOVE the movie Chef if you love food shows and movies. You really can't go wrong with it – it's such a fun movie. Finn's ears have been out of control lately – it just cracks me up when they are perked up like that! And, I think you're right – dogs train us as much as we train them. Happy Sunday!

    Right?! I have no idea why I was so drawn to that hat – it just caught my eye! I'll find places to wear it. πŸ™‚

    I've been telling my boyfriend that we have to watch Chef! I love food shows and movies and no matter how much I eat before, I always end up ordering something while I'm watching. I can't control myself! Finley is SOOOO cute!! Look at those ears! I can't believe our girl will be two in January. You're right about how the training never really stops with dogs. Sometimes I wonder if we're training her or if she's training us ha!

    i want a new hat so dang bad! idk where i would wear it, but i want one!! and how cute are those polishes???

  8. 11.15.14

    Thanks, girl! The red goes with all my winter coats since they all are black, so it's a nice pop of color. It's been so chilly here, too – I'm not ready for this weather!

  9. 11.15.14

    I was thinking of you when I was trying on the hat! You know you're my hat inspiration, and I hope I can pull it off half as good as you do. πŸ™‚ I don't think any of us are ready for the snow yet!

  10. 11.15.14

    I don't know what's up with his "crazy ear" lately! It definitely makes for some good photos, though. πŸ™‚ We've only had flurries up here, too, but I'm sure the sticking snow is coming. Stay warm, and have a great weekend!

  11. 11.15.14

    All we've had are flurries, too – I'm not ready for the cold and snow, either! I hope you have a great weekend!

  12. 11.15.14

    Thanks, Courtney! Happy Friday!

  13. 11.15.14

    Right?! We've had flurries, which looks so pretty but I'll be over it once it starts sticking to the ground and I have to drive in it. No fun! We can't believe we will be in our new home in three weeks – crazy! Have a wonderful weekend!

  14. 11.15.14

    So jealous of you girls that live down south and don't have to deal with the cold and snow! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, doll!

  15. 11.15.14

    Finn sure loves the camera!

  16. 11.15.14

    You are so sweet, thank you! I have no idea why I was so drawn to that hat – it's the little things, right? Have a great weekend lady!

  17. 11.15.14

    Thanks, girl! Have a wonderful weekend! xo

    LOVE that hat on you- you can't go wrong with red- especially this time of the year! We've avoided snow for now, but it has been so cold πŸ™ I'm not a fan!

    You know I love hats haha, that one looks AMAZING on you! So chic! We have already had two minor snows, my parents are up north working on our cottage kitchen and they've sent me photos of snow up to their ankles already – I am SO not really for that!

  20. 11.14.14

    Omg, that one ear up one ear down, way too adorable! My mom told me about the snow up north, crazy how much!! I am not ready for this at all, but we only got flurries yesterday here in Schaumburg. Good luck with all the packing, happy weekend!
