Finally a Friday!

Today is one of those rare Friday's during football season that actually counts as a Friday for me. Today marks 13 days of work in a row so you bet I'm going to live it up this weekend with TWO whole days off in a row! We have been SO busy, I feel like I haven't seen my husband at all! I don't know about you all, but it seems like the only time Jared and I seem to bicker is when we haven't gotten to spend much time together. Lots of quality time with Jared is the only thing on the agenda for the next two days. Well, that and watching lots of football, but that's a given ;) 

Linking up with some pretty ladies over here and here today for 5 on Friday/High 5 for Friday!

{1} Fall is actually here now! Despite Ohio's 80 degree weather today and tomorrow, we've been having lots of cool nights with the windows open and one of our trees turned orange practically overnight. I had to hurry and snap some pictures before all the leaves fell- I feel like that happens earlier and earlier every year!

{2} This delicious smelling candle we were given as a gift. It's so tempting to go drop a fortune on candles every time the seasons change, so I'm thankful for this yummy scent in our house right now.

{3} Having less than a month until I get to go visit some family in their new city, see their new house AND snuggle an adorable baby the entire time I'm there. The countdown has begun!

{4} A bathroom I actually enjoy getting ready in! Last month Jared and I installed a new vanity/sink and have finally put the finishing touches on our mini "master" bath and I'm so happy with the changes. I'm totally slacking on pictures, but eventually I'll share the before/after!

{5} Getting fit! As painful as this first week has been, I'm glad I'm finally taking control of my weight and my health. I've been making horrible choices in terms of food for far too long. Jared and I even took 'before' pictures this week (barf!) and I can't wait to have an 'after' picture I can be proud of. Thank you everyone for your encouragement and recommendations and tips on yesterday's post. Ya'll rock!!

  1. Scott & I bicker more when we don't see each other much, too! I'm guessing that's a good thing! It would be terrible if we argued more the more we saw each other! Haha. Have a great weekend!! I wish that Pumpkin Carving candle picture was a scratch and sniff! I need to get my hands on that!

Peter and I are the same way when we haven't spent enough time together :P His little sister has her first high school homecoming tonight so his BIL, older sister and I are going to their house pictures.

  10. Christian and I totally fight more when we haven't seen each other much. I think it's kind of cute, though, since we're basically just mad we can't see each other. So even though the arguing is no fun, it's coming from a good place (if that even makes sense?!). I also had to cave this week and I bought two mason jar candles at Bath and Body Works (2 for $15!)!

  11. I'm with you on the spending time together thing. We went home last weekend and due to a packed schedule, I really only got to see B for a total of 11 hours, which led to a tense 5 hour drive home. After a good cuddle and some sleep we had the next three date nights planned!

  18. Man.. that candle looks like it smells yummy! I could easily spend a fortune too! I ask for candles and Rob goes to the Dollar Store and gets me some. He doesn't understand that in order to have good scents, you must invest some money into them. Funny thing is.. I buy Air Wick plug ins but I don't like the "seasonal scents".. when it comes to candles though, the seasonal scents are awesome! I hope you are enjoying your Friday. I hope you are taking at least a day to rest those sore muscles. Maybe take a hot bath with some epsom salts?

  19. I honestly wish I could go into "bath & body works" but my allergies won't let me. Lol.

    Hope you enjoy your weekend off. Lots of relaxing time!!!
