friday five


Scrolling through my NYC pictures for yesterday’s post and came across this gem. Walking on our way in the Lower East Side to the best meal I’ve ever eaten (Beauty & Essex).


It’s Fall. We all know that there is plenty of pumpkin-spiced coffee, desserts, beers, even pumpkin-spiced Pringles. But let me introduce you to the best of them all. Pumpkin. Spiced. BACON. Yes, it’s real and luckily, if you’re in the Cleveland area, head down to the West Side Market to grab a pound (or eight) of your own! I was a little skeptical when I bought them so I only grabbed a half a pound – huge mistake. Hopefully they’re still in stock!


I don’t want to scare you away with Christmas decorations, but I came across this print from SS Print Shop and I’m in love with it. There are also two matching prints that say “peace” and “love” that would look so cute over a fireplace.

If you head over to Danielle’s blog Breakfast at Toast, she is hosting a giveaway for one of these prints!


This weekend we have another wedding for Steve’s really good friends. Instead of buying two dresses (we had a wedding last weekend too), I thought I would finally give Rent the Runway a try. I’m a bit nervous because I have never used it before. Luckily, they send you 2 dress sizes so you don’t have to rely on one dress. You can chat with their staff about measurements and hopefully one of the sizes fit me.. it hasn’t been the healthiest week.

I picked one of the dresses above – and hopefully if it fits, next week I’ll have some pictures to show which one! I also ordered a necklace since you get $25 off your first order, so at least I’ll be able to wear that! Let me know which dress you like best!


 I’m sorry – I’m obsessed with this face. Tuesday night we went out to eat for my uncle’s birthday with the family – there happened to be a lemon in my water and I couldn’t resist taking a video of my goddaughter tasting a lemon for the first time. I mean, who doesn’t love watching those videos?

Linking up with Darci!
