One. Red Red Red
I’ve already said it on IG and I will say it again…this girl can do no wrong when it comes to her music and I can’t say I’m ashamed that I listen to AND buy it. It’s catchy, upbeat, and her songwriting talent is beyond incredible. But, today I’m sharing this picture from the Blank Space video in the hopes yall can help me find the perfect shade of red lipstick…I love this look, especially for fun holiday parties and events so I would love some suggestions for a go-to, fierce red lipstick.
Two. French Dip Dinnertime Goodness
I just re-discovered an oldie, but goodie when it comes to a go-to easy fall and winter suppertime staple this week and it didn’t disappoint…it only requires 4 ingredients which is even better so you’r enot fumbling through a crazy long recipe while stocking up at the grocery store. Ready to make the boys (and girls) happy? This one is a big hit for my main squeeze, too!
2 lb. Rump Roast
2 Envelopes Dry Onion Soup Mix
2 Cans Reduced Sodium Beef Broth
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Provolone Cheese Slices
1. Empty dry soup mix, beef broth, and roast into crock pot and cook on high for 4-6 hours (or low for 6-8 hours)
2. Once done, assemble sandwiches and top with two slices of provolone cheese and place in oven on broil for 1-2 minutes
3. Put broth/au jus in small ramekins and serve as a side for dipping
Three. Babies Galore
This week has been a big one in the world of new blessings in our little corner of the world…both best friend Bev and my sister-in-law Jennifer were due with boys on November 20th, but both little nuggets decided they’d make an early debut…oh I am so anxious and cannot wait to meet these new little men!! This is when living in different cities makes life difficult…the countdown is on until I can get to Knoxville for a visit to snuggle on some newborn cuteness.
Four. Curious Minds Would Like to Know…
I’m over my fall decorations…there I said it. Maybe Jeff will read this and know the inevitable is coming and he will jump on board the holiday train ;).
When do ya’ll decorate for the holidays? Our tradition has always been to do it the weekend AFTER Thanksgiving, but with it being so late this year I am plotting my attack on doing it prior to our turkey day feasting. For as much time and effort as we put into Christmas decor, I want to be able to enjoy it and make it count. So, who decorates early??? PLEASE tell me I am not the only lunatic out there.
Five. I Am a Mama’s Girl
Yesterday was this pretty lady’s birthday…and we were so excited to be the first callers to sing her Happy Birthday, too!! (P.S. there isn’t anything sweeter than a 2.5 year old singing happy birthday)
Today, Mimi and I are headed for our annual birthday celebration date…we venture out to Christmas Village for some holiday shopping fun, and we are starting our morning off with breakfast at The Perch. Yummy crepes are the perfect beginning for a special day together. And a belated BIG birthday shout-out to the grandest of them all…a woman that taught me what it is to be how to be the best mom I can be and the one who loves unconditionally. We love you to the moon Mimi!
You know the drill my dears…link up below and share your Five on Friday goodness with us. We always love finding fun new reads and thank you for sharing your life, too!
