Happy Friday! Linking up with April, Christina, Darci and Natasha for "Five on Friday"; Lauren for "High Five for Friday"; and Amy and Karli for "Oh Hey, Friday!" 

Here we go! 

I mentioned Monday that we put our Christmas tree up, and I had to report back that Walker has had absolutely zero interest in it. None. I totally thought I'd have to baby gate that thing or not put ornaments on the bottom, but the kid - much to my surprise - could care less! He'll look at it every day when we get home, gaze for a second, and then crawl off to go play with this toys. It's the craziest thing to me! 

However, he does like the giant ornaments {that I picked up from Target a few years ago} when I hold him up to the tree. I think he likes that he can see himself in them. ;) 

Brandon and I are more than a little obsessed with "How to Get Away with Murder." We hadn't watched it in almost a month {that is so sad}, so we binge-watched four episodes the other night - staying up past 10 p.m. which, sadly, is well past our old people bedtime! I am so confused by - yet so enthralled with - that show! 

The Rage has done it again...making me want every single thing in their shop! I'm currently dying over this cute sequin pocket tee! {The former sorority girl in me can't get enough of pocket tees!} 

It's quite evident, I'm sure, that Brandon and I are huge wine-o's! Our new favorite is from a vineyard we visited when we were in Fredricksburg: Lewis Wines. It's a 2013 Chenin Blanc and is $24 per bottle. While that's on the pricey side, we're Wine Club Members so we get a good discount on it. Since we don't live near Fredricksburg, we have it shipped to us, which is likely the best decision I have made in a while. It's always the best mail day when Brandon brings that home from his office! {BTW, you have to sign for it, so that's why we have it sent to Brandon's office. I figured sending wine to a school district's administration building where I work would be quite frowned upon...ha!} Anyway, if you love wine, order yourself a bottle of this soon! I promise you'll love it! 

This was totally me this week! I felt like the crazy train of people was fast approaching the station all week, so I am beyond excited that it is Friday and I am off all week next week! Hallelujah for leaving work on Nov. 19 and not stepping foot back in there until December! 

Happy Weekend, y'all! 



  1. I need that pocket tee (or 5) in my life. LOVE it!

  2. Oh I am obsessed with How to get away with Murder and pretty much everything else Shonda Rhimes comes up with! I love the pic of you and your baby! I bet he will learn to love the tree:) I am stopping by from #H54F! Hope you have a great weekend:)

  3. Your little one is adorable!!! I am so scared to see how my mini reacts to our Christmas Tree.. She is 1 and I am so scared she is going to pull it down.. Found you on the Link up! Hope you had a great weekend
