ONE. Lipstick Junkie
Is it just me or is anyone else out there turning into a lipstick-a-holic? I have been changing up my look a bit in the makeup department, especially for my lips…from wearing shiny lip gloss to lipsticks. Does this mean I am getting older because lipstick is usually targeted to women and not girls? I LOVE the smell of lipstick–reminds me of Mom and Gran–and from what I can tell so far, the color lasts longer and I like the moisturizing effect on my lips. I picked up a new shade the other day and am LOVING it already. Perfect nude-ish color for fall.

TWO. Club Twenty-Two Fundraiser
Ya’ll might have heard me mention a time or two that I am a member of the Nashville Junior League. This year, my placement is for our fundraiser called the Club Twenty Two Shopping Card. It’s a discount card you purchase for $50 and then you receive 20% off at tons of retailers in and around Nashville for two shopping periods…one in the fall and one in the spring. If you’re local and wish to purchase (perfect for holiday shopping which is just around the corner), here is the website to order. There are TONS of incredible stores this year including Kate Spade, JCrew, Gap, Ann Taylor, Brooks Brothers, Kayce Hughes, Vineyard Vines, Hemline, and Francesca’s…as well as other local marchants–photographers, restaurants, gyms, wardrobe stylists, etc. Here is a full list of our merchants. 
It’s for a great cause in our community and helps back our partner agencies for the fight against childhood obesity, which is the JLN’s initiative for the next few years…we absolutely would appreciate your support!

THREE. Lasagna Soup…Staple Dinner for Fall
I made this concoction earlier this week and though I was a bit skeptical about how the finished product would turn out, let me tell you, it was AH-MAZING! A winner from both Jeff and I and it was semi-healthy, too. P.S. I did add garlic breadsticks to ours=not so healthy, but OH so worth it.
Trust me on this one friends, make this ASAP…perfect for weekend get together eating during football!

FOUR. Halloween Goody Bags

Pottery Barn Kids always seems to come through…I wanted to order both my girls cute trick-or-treat bags to use each year and so of course I knew they would have some adorable options to choose from! I went with the staple pumpkin just so it would match any costume we decide to use, and you can get them personalized, too!! Aren’t these too cute?? Better that they are on sale right now, and if the pumpkin doesn’t suit your fancy, try the ghost, cat, bat, spider, or any animal you can think of.

FIVE. Office Printables for the Win
If you have to work, at least you can have cute printables to make your week happier! To-Do lists, mailing labels, and artwork galore…these are adorable!
Another Five on Friday done and done my dears…I looked at my blog and can’t believe I actually posted something everyday this week-that must be a record for me because that NEVER happens. Post planning at its finest 🙂   


Hope you lovelies have a wonderful weekend. This family is heading to the zoo, watching football, spending time with the big guy at church, and enjoying the cooler fall-like weather. OXOX

  2. I'm loving that Halloween pumpkin bag. I was at Pottery Barn Kids admiring all their Halloween decor yesterday. If only I could have it all!

  3. I agree, the lasagna soup looks good. I love the treat bags, how cute and I love printables. I will have to check them out. Hope you have a great weekend.

  4. Carroll says:

    The lipstick looks amazing and I've been wanting to try that lasagna soup recipe for a while. Now I'll have to put it on the must-do list! Happy Weekend!

    Lasagna soup? OH MY GOSH… that looks like a piece of heaven on earth!!!

  6. Jess says:

    Yum! That soup would be perfect this week now that its getting cooler. Thanks for the recipe!

  7. Jen says:

    I'm loving ALL of the lipstick colors! I get stuck on just one so often, so I think it's time to explore! Thanks for the fun new options! And lasagna soup?!!? Oh my! Must try this soon! Have a great weekend!

  8. Lea says:

    Oh, I'm always up for a new soup recipe and I've never heard of this one. Thanks for sharing! And, I too, love me some lipstick and have recently fallen in love with the Lipsense (stays on all day long). Sounds like a fun weekend. Enjoy!

  9. Kelly Slater says:

    That lasagna soup looks delicious! I will have to try it. I just ordered my daughter that EXACT bag from PBK! It just came in yesterday and as usual, did not disappoint! Can't wait for her to use it on Halloween!

  10. That pumpkin treat bag is adorable!!!! Thanks for the reminder to get one…it would have totally slipped my mind!

  11. I am becoming a total lipstick junkie too! I went from never wearing it to not being able to get enough! I'm obsessed!

  12. I love too faced lipsticks. You should try Chanel lipsticks – they have an amazing nude as well (i think it's 112). Happy Friday!

  13. Miss Lena says:

    Funny you mention lipsticks, I just bought one yesterday, Loreal Blushing Sequin and I LOVE it!!

  14. Jessica says:

    Mmm lasagna soup sounds AMAZING

  15. Tess says:

    The older get, the more obsessed I become with lipstick. It seriously is addicting and SO needed. When did my lips start turning white????

  16. I've also noticed that as I've gotten older I've gravitated more and more towards lipstick. I've even gone old school…back to my high school fave….clinique's almost lipstick in black honey. It goes on great and I don't need to stop and use a mirror (important with my very busy one year old around!).

    That soup looks absolutely amazing….I'll be making that soon for sure!

    Have a great weekend!

  17. melissa says:

    I wish I lived locally – that card sounds great! And those treat bags are so cute! I wanted to get the ghost for B but she's going to be Doc McStuffins this year and her doctor bag is going to double as her treat bag. You know, for the three seconds she'll probably stay interested in trick or treating. 🙂

  18. Kelly Sue says:

    Im gonna have to get on that Lasagna Soup Recipe girl!! That looks soooo good!

  19. SHAYNA says:

    I want that Lasagna Soup right now! That looks so good!

  20. Emily Powell says:

    I just bought my first lipstick! Ahh! I'm growing up 😉

  21. jweis81 says:

    I have to try that lasagna soup. I am always looking for new slow cooker recipes. I love your blog! Your's is the one that got me hooked!

  22. Courtney W. says:

    I love your JL fundraiser! I am hoping our League chooses to do something childhood obesity / health related for our new initiative, too.

  23. Chandler says:

    That lasagna soup looks so good!! I'm gonna have to try that one of these weeks! 🙂

  24. Caroline says:

    I totally need some of that soup!

  25. I've become such a lipstick junkie as well! The Maybelline Vivids are so FUN.

  26. Sara says:

    Lasagna soup? Done and done. And I love that the smell of lipstick reminds you of your mama. That just melts my heart.
