High Five for Friday

Thank goodness it’s Friday!  Here’s a recap of five moments from this week:


I have almost forgotten that Halloween was last week.  I feel as if the transition from September to October is all about pumpkins and skeletons.  Two of my favorite things, actually.  But then, Halloween happens and suddenly it’s time to plan for the holidays.

(Sorry for the poor photo quality)

A cat and two bats:


Adding to that holiday feeling was the snow we got Halloween night.  If it is going to be 30~ degrees, I want some snow! I resisted buying Christmas decorations, but I did try to watch Elf. 

It’s not on Netflix, in case you were curious. 


I’m trying out The Everygirl 30-day challenge and not purchasing anything for 30 days, just paying attention to what items in my closet hit the heavy rotation. I’m not much of a shopper, but I like the purposeful process of rethinking a lot of pieces that have gone unworn for quite some time. 


I will never buy enchilada sauce again.  I literally licked this stuff out of the saucepan.  The scent of toasting garlic powder, cumin, chili powder and cayenne with a bit of oil and flour was heavenly.  This was another Oh She Glows recipe. 

I do not regret my obsession with that cookbook. 


I have never cared much about interior design or making my art/furniture/knick knacks “work” together.  I think my time working in an art gallery where clients were mostly concerned with matching a color scheme and not that feeling had me jaded.  

 But now I suddenly want my space to look more streamlined.  I was inspired by this photo of how Christina gathered and displayed what could potentially have been a messy situation.

I like it. 


Happy Friday!

    Great roundup! I'm looking forward to the upcoming snow days. The way you described that enchilada sauce, I have to make that recipe a.s.a.p. Enjoy a restful Sunday night, Anna :)http://www.lovecompassionatelee.com/thinkoutloud/2014/11/9/11914
