Happy Friday y'all.  This week was a fast one, and thank God.  As much as I love the little kiddos I spend my days with each week in the classroom, I really love sleeping in and being lazy on the weekends.  This weekend we don't really have any plans which makes it that much better.  I plan on trying to convice T to go to the pumpkin patch with me and watching the Gators win (hopefully).  And seriously, my Panthers need to get it together as well.  

So, on with this five on Friday fun...

one \\ fall y'all
It's officially fall, and I'm in love.  The temperatures are still high here, but I've all about that fall wardrobe.  Seriously, have you ever seen such a unique, cute (and super cozy) shirt?  And can you tell I'm trying to force plaid into my outfits more?  Haha.  And yes, you will probably hear me blubber on about how much I love fall all season.  Sorry not sorry.  What's not to love about fall?!

Y'all, as much as I love the fall outfits they're not the only thing I'm obsessing over this season.  This apple cider sangria my best friend and I created from a couple recipes we found onine is straight up delish.  Fall in a cup y'all.  

three \\ 
another reason I'm totally obsessed with fall?  the food!  LITERALLY the best season for food.  Christmas season (because it's pretty much it's own season) coming in at a close second.  And my list for food I want to bake this fall is ever growing.  First on the list?  This broccoli cheese soup from Cooking Classy.  Also on the list -- halloween muddy buddy mix.

four \\ from the archives
I came across this post from two years ago, and it's still as true as ever.  22 things girls can't say "no" to.  Also, why is my hair so red in that post?  What is something you cannot say "no" to.

five \\ this shirt.
I just got this shirt in the mail from Live Love Gameday.  It is so so soft.  And seriously cute.  You can guarantee I'll be wearing it tomorrow.  

Happy weekending y'all.  Do you have any exciting plans?  Keep up with me and all my laying around on the couch on snapchat.

Apple Cider Sangria

Ever had something you want to share, but you can't come up with a good way to lead into it?  Like the other day I really wanted to post onto Instagram (because that's the thing to do right?), but I couldn't come up with a good caption.  And it was seriously a struggle.  Y'all, all the first world problems over here. 

 Anyways, thats whats going on with this post over today.  This past weekend my best friend came over to visit, and we made the best fall sangria.  We merged together a recipe each of us had found to make the best of course I had to share with y'all -- clever intro to this post or not.  

Now that I'm thinking about it, maybe this apple cider sangria will cure my writers block after all... ;)

750 mL bottle of Pinot Grigio (or any other white wine you'd like to swap out)
Apple Cider (A little over half a gallon)

Mix wine and apple cider (add more or less apple cider to taste).  Slice up apples and add to the mix.  The sangria is best when the flavors have melded together after several hours, however, it still tastes delish right away.

This may be my new fall drink of choice, well after the PSL of course.  ;)

Also, it should be noted that everything in these pictures is from Target (yes, I'm addicted).  And practically everything (minus the bar car) is from the dollar spot -- meaning it was all $5 or less.  I mean, how can you not be obsessed with Target?

What is your favorite fall drink?  What do you do to cure writers block?

TGIF y'all.  We made it to another Friday, hallelujah!  And to make Friday that much better my best friend is coming to visit today.  So onto our regularly scheduled biz -- five on Friday.

one // it's fall y'all
In case you missed it (ha! like that could happen) yesterday was the first day of fall.  Butttt I am loving all the pumpkins, plaid, PSL, burgandys and olive all over the place.  And I am totally ready for some cooler temps.  In fact, you may have seen on snapchat (mary_timmerman) but our living room has been decorated for fall for a solid two weeks now.  eek!

two // fall wardrobe
And since I've been obsessing over all things fall for the past couple of weeks I've been dreaming of new pieces to add to my fall wardrobe.  I'm trying to embrace the plaid this year (if it's even just tied around my waist for looks ;) ). 

I'm totally digging my new criss cross tee.  The burgandy and the criss cross are totally trendy right now.  And y'all this tee is $8.99.  How can you beat that?  And no, quality was not sacrificed.  I'm in love.

I made the best sliders this week.  Walmart is currently having a deal in their hot deli section, 20 wings for $10.  And y'all they're delish.  I'm not a huge wing person, but I've been devouring the wings with the sliders and on they're own.  Self high five for another night of not having to cook.  Can I get an amen?!

four // this.

what kind of white girl trash but this is undeniably about me and i hate it:

yeah, this will definitely be included in our Sunday plans.  nom nom nom.

Happy Friday y'all.  What are your weekend plans?  Keep up with our best friend shenanigans on snapchat.  And hopefully that'll include a little french toast.

Around these parts, football season is no joke. Gone are the days of sharing the TV remote, we've got college football to watch (or so I'm told... ;) ). The best part of football season if you ask me? The food. I've said it before, and I'll say it again...and again. There is something about football sesason that brings out THE BEST food recipes. My husband is a grill master, but on football Saturdays he'd rather be couchside than grillside. Luckily, I picked up some boneless wings from the Wamart Hot Deli and there won't be any sacrifices as far as the food goes. Introducing BBQ Wing Sliders with an white BBQ sauce.

Here's the thing guys, I am all about the food that comes along with football season.  And when I saw Walmart was having a $10 for 20 wings at their Hot Deli section, I jumped at the chance to enjoy this amazing deal.  

Two reason I love this deal so much: 1. Thomas doesn't have to stop watching the game for us to have delicious wings and 2. These wings are delicious whether you make the sliders or just eat them on their own, requiring no effort at all.  #winning

Okay, actually three things.  The price.  I mean y'all, 20 wings for only $10?  

Slider Ingredients:
20 for $10 bucket from Walmart's Hot Deli -- Boneless BBQ wings
Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
Provolone Cheese
White BBQ Sauce

White BBQ Sauce:
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp mayonaise
1 tbsp water
1tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp apple wine vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of pepper
2 tsp dijon mustard
2 tsp honey
1 clove garlic, minced


1. pick up the BBQ boneless wings, duh ;)
2. mix together the ingredients for the white bbq sauce
3. assemble sliders with wings, sauce and cheese.
4. enjoy!

It's as simple as that y'all, and on game day quick and easy is really the way to go.  Now if you don't mind, I'm off to enjoy somemore sliders.

So tell me whats your go-to game day recipe?  Have you tried the Walmart wings yet?

Drinking: All the caffeine.  Coffee and Coke Zero are probably running through my veins.  And I can't get enough.

Excited About: LipSense.  Y'all I'm totally obsessed with the two LipSense Shades I have (Bella and AussieRose) and the Glossy and Matte gloss.  The long lasting results I have gotten combined with the compliments I've received are more than worth what it costs.  I was sent the originial color and gloss to review, but since then have bought the second color and gloss, and am still blabbing about it because I love it that much.  Trust need this in your life.
