Five on Friday

TGIF Friends!! I am so happy to see you Friday! It's been chaos in this house the last two weeks with the kids being sick all last week, me and Matthew being sick this week.  I just feel like we cannot catch a break.  Kyle and I have a wild Friday planned to clean, clean, clean this place and wash every piece of laundry there is in hopes of getting rid of all these germs.  I tempted to open the windows since it's 50 degrees out to get some fresh air coming through.  I cannot believe next week is Thanksgiving and I'm trying not to feel the stress of the holidays even though I feel it creeping up on me.  Anyone else starting to feel like that??

So I wanted to pop in today and just share five things I've been loving lately with you all. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

1. Dry Bar Detox Dry Shampoo 

I have very fine hair that gets greasy really quickly. Like by the 6pm of a regular day so I usually have to wash it everyday and I had not found a dry shampoo that actually worked until this one!  I have tried so many of them and always skipped over this one because of the price tag.  Then one day at Ulta I was like it has great reviews I might as well try it and I'm so happy I did.  This is seriously the only dry shampoo that actually makes my hair look good and not greasier than it already is.  I was in shock the first time I used it. It pulls all the grease out of my hair and gives it volume and texture so its not flat against my head.  $23 might be high but it's worth it in my book! I'm hoping this will help my blonde highlights extend a little longer between salon visits this winter.  

Every year we go to my in-laws for Thanksgiving and my mother in law hosts the whole family.  When I saw these wine glasses I knew I had to get them for her!  She loves themed wine glasses and doesn't have any for fall or Thanksgiving so I knew these would be perfect.  Right now they are on sale and I thought they would be a perfect little thank you for hosting us gift.   Since we show up with two kids and our dog ;) 

While I love a lot of pumpkin spice things I haven't been the biggest fan of the pumpkin spice coffee (I like the lattes and the creamer just not the coffee itself) until I tried this the other morning at a friend's house.  It has the perfect amount of pumpkin spice flavor that I didn't even need any creamer in it.  I know we're heading out of pumpkin spice season but I going to snag a container of these at my local TJ's this weekend if they have them before I missed it! Have any of you tried these?  

So in my desperate attempt to get my kids to actually eat their food I bought these plates on Amazon. I had just been using big round plastic plates from Target and I think I may have been putting too much food on their plates and then expecting them to eat more than they actually could.  So I bought these and I really think it might be working.  I've had divided plates before but they were either too big or two small and I think these are the perfect size.  

If you haven't hopped on the mules bandwagon yet you need to start with these!! They're so comfy an easy to walk in, plus I think they could dress up so many outfits but look great for running errands with the kids.  A few people have asked me if I find walking in mules hard and I really don't but I know a lot of people don't like them.  I think my best advice is to just give them a try around your house and try not to think to hard about how you're walking in them.  

What are you loving this week?
