5 on Friday

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you all are safe and dry wherever you are, especially you all in Florida and on the coast. I am super happy it is Friday even though we originally had plans to meet up with some friends to watch the Clemson game and all four of our babysitters are busy. 

On Wednesday, I fed Madeline when she woke up and then we immediately piled into the car and headed to a local coffee shop for the Gilmore Girls Luke's Diner pop-up. We ran into one of my friends in line just by coincidence and enjoyed a cup of coffee before heading home to nap and workout. 
Big thanks to Netflix for sponsoring such a fun little event all over the country. Did anyone else make it to their local Luke's? And who is super excited about the Netflix premiere of Gilmore Girls?

We also took Madeline to the pumpkin patch this week. I had really been looking forward to it and dressed her in an adorable pumpkin smocked bubble. Well, I'm sorry to say this is the best photo we got of the outing. 
She was very interested in the dirt and pine straw and moderately interested in looking at the pumpkins.

I finished my front porch. Just praying I keep these mums alive for a little while. I also went back to At Home (again) and picked up those cute little lanterns. And some throw pillows, a Christmas garland, and a picture frame. Now, I am not allowed to go back to At Home anymore. 

The weather has finally cooled off here in Charlotte. If you have talked to me recently, you may know how concerned I have been about the absence of fall weather. It still isn't quite cold enough for my riding boots to make their seasonal debut but I have been wearing all my favorite closed toe flats and booties like it is my job. 

Our foyer has sat empty since we moved into our house. We really needed very little furniture even though our house is much bigger. We just rearranged some things. I am in the market, though, for a small foyer table right now so I can begin working on that space. Basically, I'm just ready to get started so I have that area to style for the holidays. Finding the right piece in the right size is proving to be a challenge. Here are some favorite inspirations right now. 



  1. Visiting from the link up! :)

    I think I'm the only girl between the ages of 25-35 that isn't into Gilmore Girls. I tried watching it a few times from the beginning but I just can't get into it.

    1. I'm the last months of 35 and not a GG fan either. I feel more like 40 though (my husband and most of my friends are older), so maybe that's why. ;) You're not alone!

  2. Check sleepy poet for a foyer table!

  3. Oh, I know the struggle of trying to get good pictures of children! Hahaha!

    I love your porch - it turned out great!

    I didn't go to the local Luke's event (I'm not a coffee drinker) but I cannot wait for the premiere!

  4. Visiting from the link up. Love your front porch! And a cute foyer table is the best for fun, seasonal decor!

  5. I wanted to go to the Luke's pop-up but wasn't able to make it! Sounds like so much fun. :]

  6. Love your front porch - At Home is such a hard store to leave without a cart full of stuff! Love all their Christmas stuff already! Madeline looks soo cute in her pumpkin smocked bubble - even if she's not looking in the picture :)

  7. So bummed we didn't have a Luke's Diner pop-up close to us!! And I love your front porch!!

  8. The nearest Luke's Diner pop-up was still about 20 miles away. In Atlanta metro time, that's like an hour drive. I don't even drink coffee, and I would have had to go alone, so I skipped it. But it looked like SO much fun!


Thank you for stopping by!
