Five on Friday

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope that you had a great day with your loved ones and that you have today off work! We are heading to Palm Springs tomorrow to see my brother play lacrosse and to hang out with my parents. I can't wait! I haven't decided yet if I am going to go Black Friday shopping. To brave the crowds or to not brave the crowds?? Anyways... as always I'm linking up with AprilNatashaChristinaKarliErikaNarci, and Andrea. Happy Friday!!

One- Being a Tourist 

Mark's mom and brother came into town on Wednesday and we played "tourist" for the day. We went to Seaport Village to have lunch and to walk around the little shops. It was a beautiful day! Then we headed to Coronado to walk around a bit and to go to Bull Shirt. It was a super low key and relaxing day. 

Two- Updated Fall Bucket List

Since fall is coming to an end I thought I would update you on my Fall Bucket list. Sadly we weren't able to carve pumpkins this year. This was one of the things I was most excited about but it just didn't happen because of timing. However we did get to a bunch of other fun things! We put together two super awesome costumes and watched a Harry Potter movie together. 

I tried a few different pumpkin ales and made chili three times this past month. I love trying new chili recipes but the Pioneer Woman's Chipotle Chili is still my favorite. Jenna, Stephanie, Jen, and I had a girls night and made caramel apples that were so yummy! I also donated to a food drive which is always a great thing. :)

Three- Hawaiian Sliders

I made these last weekend when Mark was sick with the flu. I wanted to make something hearty for Mark to eat and something besides soup lol. I used this recipe and they turned out soooo good! I also made Against All Grain's sweet potato fries. Yum!

Four- Day Date

Mark and I had a day date this past week and it was so nice to just be together. Mark has been so sick so he didn't have a fun weekend at all. It was good to get out of the house and do something just the two of us. We went to Coasterra for happy hour and the views were so amazing! As the sun started to set a layer of fog moved in and half covered the pink in the clouds. So beautiful!

Five- Anastasia Self-Made Palette

I bought this during the VIB sale and I have been loving it! The colors are very different from any other palette I have and I've been experimenting with some smokier looks. I wear pretty neutral eye shadow on an everyday basis but I'm excited for the opportunity to use the plum shade for a night out.   For the price ($35) I think this is a great deal!


  1. The apples look so good! :) I didn't carve pumpkins this year either but they still looked pretty as decorations around my house!
