Fridays on the Blog

 It’s time for the Friday blog hops!

Oh Hey Friday with The Farmer’s Wife and September Farm
Friday Favorites with Meet Me at the Barre


1. I am still reeling from my vacation. Definitely in the top three of my life. I made so many amazing friends and had so many awesome experiences. I had originally thought I would do this just the one time but if there’s a second cruise, me and about 1,000 other people are dying to go and have a reunion. So let’s hope there’s an encore trip in 2015!!! Oddly enough, this isn’t my fave moment from the trip but it is pretty damn awesome anyway.

2. I’ve been stuck on Eastern time for over a week now which has resulted in me waking up at about 6:30AM every morning for no apparent reason. At first I thought, “Great, I will be so productive” and like work out. No. That happened once. Since I’m going back east again next month, I’m attempting to stay on Eastern time until then buuuuut… Yeah.

3. I have been binge watching The Originals. Oddly enough, I am schoolgirl crushing on a character that is now dead. WTF man. Can you tell I have a thing for guys with long blond hair?

4. I am super excited about Thanksgiving dinner next week. Since I’m apparently not the worst cook alive, I decided to be ambitious and attempt several recipes from the Paula Deen Ladies & Sons cookbook. Blogging will be postponed if I accidentally burn down my house.

5. Apparently I have New Year’s Eve plans in advance for once. I know, crazy, right??? One of my super close friends from Canada is coming in and she’s a planner just like me. Initially I was totally against the idea of being on the Strip for NYE but I thought, why not? I’ve only sort of done it once and it was pretty lame (the party was in a basement, what can you see in a basement?). I do love a good excuse to buy a glittery dress; however, I think this year, I may do the DIY thing.


So this Christmas I am attempting all homemade gifts. Key word being ATTEMPTING. I thought maybe I’d try my hand at canning. We will see how that goes! If nothing else, I am really loving Mason jars. Here are 5 of the most awesome jar gifts I found.
