five on friday

Hooray for Friday. We're finally expecting some rain this weekend and I couldn't be more excited. Hopefully some cooler temps will follow. It's hard to celebrate all things fall when it's 100 degrees outside. But don't despair;  I'm still enjoying all things pumpkin. I'm linking up with Five on Friday again this week. Let's get right to it.

I've been looking for a particular cookbook for a while now. It's one my mom had when I was younger. You guys, I spent so much time looking through that book back in my younger days. It's the book I got my cinnamon roll and baked spaghetti recipes from. Anyway, that book has been gone for quite some time now, but I've always remained on the lookout for it.  I thought it was by Pillsbury, but earlier this week I looked on ebay under Better Homes & Gardens and there it was. It's now on its way to me. I can't wait to show you some of the fun pictures inside. It's definitely retro!  I'll share my cinnamon roll recipe next week too!


I know where I'll be Wednesday evening. I'm so excited for the season premier of Law & Order: SVU. Eighteen seasons later and that show is still going strong. Who else is watching?  

I love all things pumpkin-flavored...except for my coffee. My sister loves the pumpkin spice coffee drinks and creamer, but it's not for me. I do, however, LOVE this pumpkin spice chai latte. You can also get the tea bags, but I prefer the concentrate. I get mine at Target. It's so good with a bit of whipped cream on top. It's like autumn in a mug!  

I'm in love with this Sejour cardigan from Nordstrom, especially this soft pink shade.  I might have to have it in the silver pink AND blue cameo colors.  I'd pair it with jeans as shown or a jean skirt.  It definitely works with my capsule wardrobe style. I'm all for having just a few basic pieces that I can mix and match.


And now for book news... I'm so excited to be sharing my love of Laura Ingalls Wilder with Landon. I started reading Farmer Boy to him earlier this week and he is loving it.  We're reading two chapters a night, but last night Landon was enjoying it so much he wanted to read an additional chapter. Of course, I was happy to oblige. I have two sets in paperback, but I'm using this Kindle version right now.  It's easier for bedtime reading and the color illustrations are great.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I love finding books or other items from my childhood on Ebay! That will be fun to look at again. I love SVU! It must be good if it's been on that long!
