Friday Five Favorites

I know I say this every Friday, but TGIF!  I live for the weekends.  Friday can never get here soon enough. 

Today I'm linking up with AndreaErica, and Narci and sharing some of my favs from this week.


Also, linking up with Darci, April, Christina and Natasha for 5 on Friday.


I've been on the search for some Holiday wear.  I don't think Thanksgiving gets the attention it deserves.  I can find Halloween and Christmas clothes all day long, but Thanksgiving apparel is few and far between.  I found the perfect Thanksgiving shirts for me and Hallie. 


Because of Zoe


I picked up this ghost after seeing it featured on Holly's blog.  She even has a video of the ghost and all his silly phrases.  The kids have been getting a kick out of him.  He is motion activated, so we have been moving him around trying to get a jump out of each other. 


We are chipping away at our Fall Bucket List.  Looking forward to this weekend when we will mark a few more off the list.  We'll be decorating our pumpkins, taking Bryson to a haunted house, and watching more Halloween movies. 


I misplaced my polar watch for about a week in a half.  I was SO HAPPY when I finally found it.  I can tell I definitely did not push myself as hard when I wasn't wearing it.  Today's burn was less than usual, but we focused mainly on arms and less on cardio.  I can already tell I won't be able to lift my arms tomorrow.     


I made Stacey's version of Skinnymom's Sour Cream Enchiladas.  They were great!  I will be making them again.  Oh, and I forgot to take a picture before the hubby snatched one and half of the enchiladas.  He was ready to dive in!  Stacey suggested pureeing the Rotel.  That is right up my alley since I hate chunky vegetables.  She also used 0% plain Greek yogurt.  This was a plus for me since I try to eat so many grams of protein a day.  She also suggested using condensed cheddar soup instead of condensed cream of chicken.  This is a MAJOR plus for me.  Condensed cream of chicken makes me gag.  I will not cook any recipe that calls for condensed cream of chicken....EVER.   

Happy Friday!  Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. I am making those ASAP! And yay for no condensed soup....I'm with ya sister!

  2. Thanks for the link for the super cute Because of Zoe Thankful shirts! I ordered one for each of my girls (now if I could find the mustard skirt that was shown with it!). Also, I noticed on your bucket list that you are going to make a thankful tree. Have you made it yet? You'll have to check my site on Monday - starting 30 days of Thanks and Giving and I'm making a thankful tree as our visual reminder! :) Oh, and thanks for the shout out! Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Hello from Friday Favorites! I love the idea of a Fall bucket list. The leaves drop too fast and the bucket list is a great way to enjoy the season. As a lover of Tex-Mex, I am excited to see a skinny sour cream and chicken enchilada recipe!

  4. I am in love with ALL five of your items today! I want that shirt ASAP!

  5. Love those thankful shirts....too cute!

  6. I'm so glad you liked the enchiladas! I made them last night... yummmm, LOVE.
