Friday Five.

Wow, has it been quiet around here! When your husband and your friends start to mention it, you know it's time for a post. My apologies.

Last Sunday, we had a jam packed day. First, a surprise bday brunch for our friend, Tyler, at the always yummy, Fat Hen. Ever since this party was scheduled, I knew immediately that I was going to order the duck bbq sandwich with blue cheese coleslaw. Well, being that our reservation was at 10am due to our large group, I wasn't exactly feeling the heavy meal. Instead, I opted for the classic scrambled eggs, bacon cheese grits (amazing!), bacon, and toast.

Our two buddies, Ashton and Greyson.

The whole gang. Birthday boy on the far right.

After brunch, came TWO baby showers. First up was my sweet (and beautiful) friend, Frankie's, baby shower. She is due exactly a week before Emily but is not finding out the sex of the baby. I'm definitely feeling a girl for her so we'll just have to wait and see next month what it will be!
Next up, we headed to Amanda and Eric's co-ed baby shower. Sadly, no pics of the baby mama or daddy were taken, but I did run into Katie and Kerr! Love how our group of friends are intertwined.
Hot chocolate bar that gave me some great ideas for a special baby shower I'm throwing next month!
Super cute diaper wreath and cake! I've never seen a snowman diaper cake before.

I have a hard time finding a "specialty" coffee/tea for my Keurig that I won't get sick of after one box. They're usually all two sickly sweet for me. Enter the chai latte pods. I picked these up on Tuesday and they are SO GOOD. They taste almost as good as the Starbucks version!

Along with the chai lattes I picked up, I grabbed this Yankee Candle scent called "Pinecone & Lime." Why yes, it does sound like a very odd combination, but I promise it just makes your room smell like Christmas! I want to keep it lit all the time.

Tonight is our monthly supper club and there is a theme this go 'round! Tacky Christmas sweaters, duh. Cameron and I borrowed some sweaters from his cousin and y'all are going to be in for a treat on Monday. Let's just say that mine includes shoulder pads. So hot.

Wish I would have seen this one before though..

Can't believe Christmas is so close!
Have a great weekend!
