The Friday Five

"Five" rhymes with alive, which I case you were wondering. ;)
Here's what's good this week...

Joshua Radin
Throwing it back this week....though not this far back.

Weekend getaways
Over Labor Day weekend, the huzz and I went to Dallas/Fort Worth, TX to watch the Badger football season opener against 'Bama.  While unfortunately we got our asses kicked lost, I thoroughly enjoyed my first long trip away sans children!  I know, I oldest child is 3.5 years old.  Why did it take this long?!  Well, this is why.  I couldn't have said it any better.
Alas, everyone survived, and more importantly, had a blast.
I think I even see some glimpses of my 22-year-old-self in these photos...
A good reminder to "treat yo'self!" from time to time...and leave the worrying behind.

The Container Store Private Party
Doors open to the public this weekend!
The pre-party was a much bigger shindig than West Elm's, but sadly, couldn't purchase anything.  Guess I'll have to trek back to Mayfair once the "big rush" is over!
Note to self:  This place is the mother-lode for Secret Santa gifts + stocking stuffers come December.

P.S.  Also coming soon to Mayfair:  Nordstrom + Kate Spade.
Woot woot!
Now just bring me Ikea and I will feel complete.

Fall fashion
It's almost time!!
I can pretty much groove on all of them, minus the high-waist pants.
Trying to avoid "mom butt" for as long as possible, thank you very much.

...but let's keep those last summer days for as long as possible, please!
Now with both boys being sooooo active and energetic, I have no freakin' idea what I will do to keep them entertained come the dreaded Wisconsin winter.  Taking any and all new ideas...

And a few more links, just for fun...

Grandparents Day is this weekend - and what better people to celebrate!

Um, hello "most-amazing home makeover ever"  ...will you do me next?

Joey Fatone:  A role model to One Direction?  This is amazing.

Mindy Kaling's new book comes out next week - add it to your reading list.

And this documentary about marriage (and how much we don't actually know about our own parents) sounds kinda fascinating.

The truth about being a dad, by some pretty funny ones.

I turned 33 two weeks ago, and these age charts are hilarious.

Ingredients to keep in your freezer for last-minute, healthy meals. #pinning

Thinking about lighting like this out on our sun porch. Ethereal, no?

And some final food for thought...that Laura Ingalls Wilder, so wise and always there for a girl when ya need it at age 8 or 33. ;)

Have an amazing weekend, m'loves!
