Five on Friday

Good Morning!  So five things that are on my mind today....(in no particular order)

1.  New TV favorites
So before the TV shows came back for the fall, the hubs and I were searching for something to watch after we finished catching up on "Parks and Rec" (that show is HA-Larious).  We had heard a lot of good things about the show "The League" but I was hesitant because I am not a big sports fan, and especially football.  But boy was I mistaken (you were right Colleen)!!!

It is so wrong on so many levels, but we crack up at every episode.  So if you are looking for a show to enjoy with your hubby, try this one out.  You won't be sorry!!

2.and old TV favorites keeping it fresh....
This is the last season for one of our all time favorite shows, "How I Met your Mother".  We jumped on the bandwagon of this show about four years ago and we LOVE it.

I was a little unsure that the show would be able to sustain the comedy in their last season, but if the first episode is any indication, this show still has it!  I can't wait to see how it all unfolds.

3. Christmas
Yep, that's right.  Christmas preparations are underway at our house.  Over the past couple of years, we have found that if we start sooner than it is easier on us financially.  But free is always best, so I lucked out when I logged into my Pampers Rewards program and was rewarded with free address labels from Shutterfly!  Score!  I'm almost out of our everyday labels and I thought it would cute to have some for the holidays.  I haven't picked out our cards yet, so I just went with a simple scheme for the labels.


4. My second happy place
So some of you may know that Walt Disney World with my family is MY HAPPY PLACE, but my second happy place would have to be the beach.  Normally I am not a huge fan of the beach in the off season, because everything cold and closed seems depressing to me.  But with our house in Brigantine, that isn't the case.  The town is more year round than tourist, so we can enjoy it all year long.  And we plan on it!  Over the next couple of months our plan is to head down  for our anniversary, my birthday and New Years!  WOOOHOOO!!!!

5.  Fashion Challenge(d)
I am admittedly fashion challenged for myself.  I have ideas, but I don't know how to implement it.  So I like to funnel my fashion side into Maggie.  But sometimes I'm not sure what to dress her in on any given day.  Enter the #fallministyle on IG hosted by Aliya Rinaldi and AP.

I don't know if I'll be a super stickler about this, but it will be helpful to have some suggestions as to what to put Mags in. 

Hope you're having a great day!!!

I like to plan and I cannot lie....

Hola!  Hope you're having a terrific Thurday!!

So I am a planner.  I am a far in advance planner.  Much to my husband's chagrin.  Sometimes I am aware that my over-planning can get annoying.  Basically, I want to be in control of as much as humanly possible and try to foresee any and all problems.  You know, cause that's possible....

But my planning makes me feel less chaotic, and that my friends helps me sleep at night.  And I am working on being a lot less neurotic about it....For everyone's sanity....LOL

So what have I been planning lately??
We've had Mag's Halloween costume since June....(they had a sale and we gave it to her for her birthday)

Yep, Mags is going to be Aurora for Halloween!  She chose it herself and I am so excited because Sleeping Beauty is my fave (I swear I did not sway her decision!!!).

So now that Halloween is taken care of, what do we plan next?  Christmas of course!  And since I got burned Maggie's first Christmas and waited too long to get the dress I loved for her, I have already picked out (will purchase VERY soon) her official Christmas dress.

Yep, Carter's does it again!  I love plaid, especially for Christmas and I think Mags will look adorable in this!!

So see, my planning can be a good thing!  LOL

Do you like to plan?  Anyone as much as me??
Hope you're having a great day!!

Monday Monday

Hey guys! Hope everyone is having a great Monday!

Things are going pretty good over here.  We had a pretty fun weekend.  Saturday was pretty relaxed.  We didn't have dance because the school was closed.  What's that you say?  What dance am I referring to?  Oh nothing big, we just have a prima ballerina in training over here.....LOL

So the story of this pic.  We left for dance and I had Mags dressed in her "street" clothes, because I thought she should change at the dance studio.  But unfortunately, we got lost and we were late for the class, so I was only able to put on her ballet slippers before the class.  So I got the one pic of her in the class, and when we got home I had to put her in the outfit and get a good pic!  Oh my, what a mess!  But Mags loves the class and we are happy to have this opportunity.  

So back to this weekend.  We did some errands on Saturday and Maggie looked too cool for school...

Then on Sunday we went apple picking.  We never got around to doing this in the past, so we were excited to try it.  We got about 6lbs of apples and fun was had by all!

I have a little slideshow of all the pics from the day on Instagram, but I have no idea how to upload that here.  So just follow me on Instagram (@sbetteridge)! 

Hope you had a great weekend!
