Friday Five {Fair, Happy Hour, No Spend November, Christmas List + Greenville Trip}

Hooray! Another weekend is here! It's been a very busy week, as evidenced by the pile of dirty laundry, so here's a peak of what I've been up to.

On Sunday, we took our annual girls trip to the fair! I made sure to eat a big breakfast, but skip lunch because I knew how much we were going to eat. Below is only a fraction of what we ate....which is why I made sure I went to the gym this week instead of hibernating. 

Wednesday after work, I met up with some super sweet girls for happy hour. Ashley always gives us a heads up when she is going to be in Charleston, so we try to meet up when she does! 
Jillian, Shelby, Me, Ashley

Speaking of Shelby, I'm following her footsteps and participating in No Spend November! No new clothes, home decor, no unnecessary spending. So far, so good! The best thing for me is just to delete those sale emails the moment they pop up in my inbox. 

The Christmas list requests have begun and while I always have my Pinterest wishlist available, this year, our biggest request are donations to our furniture fund. Since we've decided that we're going to stay in our house for a few more years, rather than building or looking for a new one, it's time to finish up those checklist items that have never gotten done in the past 4 years that we've been here. First up, complete our master bedroom. The top two items that we need are matching bedside tables (the one I'm using I've had since freshman or sophomore year of college, Cameron has also had his since college) and a headboard. 

In a few hours, Emily, Katie, Kelly Anne and I will be on our way to Greenville to visit our girl, Jenny! We're helping her move in to her new house this weekend and having lots of girl time, and hopefully lots of laughs.
