High Five for Friday 10.30.15 : No Tricks, All Treats

TGIF, H54F-ers!!! Caitlin at Coffee with CaitlinDella at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, and myself want to welcome you to the link-up and the weekend.  We made it!!! 

This week’s featured blogger is Erin, a lifestyle blogger at Chasing Roots.  Erin is a midwest girl living in Texas.  She is a mom to two adorable kids, and I really enjoyed her recent post about changing traditions.  And she does a weekly “Tuesdays with Tux” feature about her cat, which is pretty cute (he just so happens to look a lot like Sox).

Now let’s review this week’s highlights:

1. Meeting other bloggers is one of the best parts about this blogging gig.  On Sunday, I had brunch with Sheryl from How to Make a Life.  It’s funny about the people you meet–it turns out Sheryl and I live maybe 10 minutes apart?  We had a great time chatting and I look forward to doing it again sometime soon.

2. We took Kane to two trunk-or-treats at local churches last week.  Kane flat-out refused to wear his dinosaur costume to either of them, but he had a good time.  He really enjoyed getting candy and playing on the inflatables and playground too. Here’s hoping he’ll wear his costume tomorrow.


3. Target had 40% off of all of their boots yesterday.  I hope you all got in on the deal.  I know that I did:)  Also, since we’re talking about clothes/shoes, I thought I’d mention that I’ve switched up the way I’m doing outfit pictures on Instagram.  I bought a full-length mirror from Kirkland’s and am now using that.


4. Thursday was National Cat Day.  Now that’s a day that this crazy cat lady in training can get behind.  So here’s a picture of Gizmo:)


5. We carved pumpkins on Wednesday night.  I also freehand the design of whatever gets carved. This year was a dinosaur.  Kane loved it and could tell it was a dinosaur, so that’s a win in my book!!! He wasn’t a huge fun of the pumpkin guts though.haha



Also, ICYMI:

We had our October H54F Google Hangout last Sunday. You can watch it here.
I brought a little hocus pocus to the blog with Halloween Style for the Casual Witch.
And I revealed all my secrets for How I Achieve 5 Day Hair.  Yep, I go 5 days in-between shampoos, and here’s how I do it.
