Five on Friday

Happy Friday! This week went by way too quickly, and it is hard to believe that October is right around the corner and Christmas is less than 100 days away... what?! Now, on to my Five on Friday!
 

ONE 
 
One of my best friends, Hannah, booked a flight to come visit me over Halloween weekend and I cannot wait to see her!! Hannah and I have been good friends since high school, and when I lived in New Mexico, she also visited over Halloween - so I guess that's our thing... and I like it!!

Next Halloween, she won't be able to visit because she is doing the World Race.  Have you heard of it?!! It's pretty incredible... she will be traveling to 11 countries in 11 months to share the Good News and love of Jesus.



TWO

This week I put out some of our fall home decor, and I am SO happy I did... it's incredible what a little seasonal decor can do for your mood!

Here is a little glimpse into our festive home. :)



THREE

Monday means back to work for me! Since I had a week off between jobs, I was able to enjoy a little down time and have lunch with John several days this week.  It's so great to see him during the day... it makes me feel like it's the weekend!

I am excited (and a little nervous) to get back into the full swing of work! Starting a new job is always a transition, but I'm hoping it will go smoothly.

 
FOUR

Scout goes back to bird camp this weekend for two weeks.  We will miss her dearly, but the timing works out pretty well with me starting a new job.  

After dropping her off, there is a pumpkin and apple orchard near Scout's camp that we are going to visit! Can you believe Monday is the first official day of fall?! There is no better way to celebrate than some you-pick apples.



FIVE

Can someone make me these caramel apple cheesecake bars?! Please and thank you!

  1. I love the festive fall touches around your house (and especially the Scrabble board decor peeking out in the background...I still think that's the cutest idea!). I definitely need to schedule an apple orchard and pumpkin patch visit soon - it's the best way to officially welcome fall!

  4. I love your fall decor!! What is bird camp? Is it like a camp for dogs? I feel like we need to drop off our dog at some type of training camp for a few weeks lol. I've always wanted to go to an apple or pumpkin farm! Have fun!!

  19. Love the fall decor! It's inspiring me to pull out some decorations! It's so hard to get in the spirit when its 90 degrees outside..perhaps making it feel fall inside will help :)
