5 on friday

I thought that I was about done with five on Friday last week when I lazily came up with five of my favorite pumpkin foods.  However, I actually came up with some things this week that you all might enjoy!
 ONE: One of the great things about fall is the return of all of my favorite shows.  I'm looking forward to the premiere of these shows next week!!  We've been watching How I Met Your Mother and Big Bang Theory since they started.  I was a little late catching onto Modern Family, but it seriously is the funniest show!!  How I Met Your Mother has gotten kind of silly over the years, but I've got to stick with it for this last season to find out who Ted marries!
TWO: Since my favorite shows have been on reruns or summer specials have been on, and we don't have cable, I've found myself reading quite a bit more than I usually do.  I have to admit, I don't really choose books that will teach me something or make more intelligent.  I tend to stick to chick "flick" type books.  I read Spring Fever early in the summer and then just finished Summer Rental this week.  I've really enjoyed Mary Kay Andrews so I picked up Ladies' Night while we were at the library the other day!

THREE: Ever since the temperatures have dipped, I've been burning my pumpkin pie candle.  I've never actually eaten pumpkin pie, but the smell of this candle is perfect for fall.

FOUR: My mission this weekend is to decorate the porch for fall.  This is one of my most favorite things about fall.  I just love mums and pumpkins.  I try to decorate the steps and the porch around the door, but I always get so overwhelmed.  I can never decide how many mums, how many pumpkins of each size and color, and whether or not to use hay and corn stalks.  This gorgeous house and porch gave me a little inspiration.

FIVE: Another one of my fall favorites is wine tasting.  We typically go to the mountains because they're the perfect backdrop to the vineyards there, but this year we're going somewhere more local.  Saturday we're taking a good friend to Saude Creek for her birthday and this picture has me really excited!  It looks like a fun place. 

Happy Friday Y'all.  Have a great weekend!  I'm excited about our fun fall weekend!

I can't wait to decorate my front porch for fall too! It's been in the 80's and 90's it seemed a little silly until the official start of fall this weekend.

Can't wait to see your finished product!

One of my new favorite shows is now Big Bang. I caught a few on TBS a few weeks back, and now I am hooked. I can not remember laughing that much for one show! So, I am attempting to DVR them and try to keep up with the story line, although, it seems like you can just watch and enjoy!
