Five on Friday

Happy Friday Ya'll!! 

Here are my five favorites from the week...

I haven't actually blogged about it all month, but I have been participating in Natalie's 30-day Closet Remix Challenge.  I've done a terrible job of posting any outfits so far, but I did snap this one on Instagram the other day.  This is really the perfect month for me to not buy any clothes because it's still 90+ degrees here in September and my focus this month is finishing projects on my house!

My Mom's been in town all week and we've had a ball!! She has spoiled sweet Brody bear to death and caught up on kisses she's missed out on all month.  It's so nice having her around for the extra set of hands and for the years of practice she's had in the kitchen.  She's a gourmet chef I tell ya.  But I will just share this cute french toast breakfast she made for Brody one morning. 

My Mom and I were so productive this week while she was in town.  I love shopping and running errands with her!  We went to our favorite home furniture store, Duh, and found these beauties which I've been NEEDING.  When I saw them in the store, I wasn't sure how the fabric would work in my family room; but they are perfection!  They are exactly what I needed in our room to add extra seating when needed, but also to use as footrests for the chairs in the room. 

I found the cutest wreath this week for fall!!  Seriously, I die over these pumpkin head football people.  Locals, I found it at Celebrations.

I shared this picture yesterday from my dinner party of a Lobster Cheesecake Appetizer.  Since this was not something I made, I had to find you guys a similar recipe.  Emeril Lagasse has one here

We're looking forward to a relaxing few days at home this weekend with one fun party tomorrow night!  Hope you have a great one :)
