Happy Friday! I don't know what it is about this week, but I'm super excited that it's finally Friday and that the weekend is almost here. We're going to a birthday party on Saturday and have some plans with friends (that include a donut breakfast!) on Sunday so it's shaping up to be a good weekend! But before we get too far ahead of ourselves... here's my weekly five!
Elf on the Shelf - Do or Don't?
I love love love when I see people's Elf on the Shelf ideas. In fact, Andrea from Momfessionals kills it every year with her elf adventures and her North Pole breakfast elf introduction. I want so badly to do Elf on the Shelf myself but... I'm not sure I have the creativity and time and energy for it. Plus I'm not sure that Mason would really get it, at least this year, so I may hold off until next year? At least now with my new job, I have some extra time in the mornings which actually makes it feasible. With my old job, we'd constantly be rushing out the door in the mornings and he wouldn't even have time to enjoy it. We'll see! Thoughts? Elf on the Shelf? Yay or nay?
I'm pretty sure that my straightener is about to kick the bucket. It's pretty old and just doesn't seem to be getting as hot as it used to. Anyone else use a straightener and love it? Recommendations please!
I recently went to Old Navy for some things for Mason and came out with some jeans for me. Ever since I got some straight leg jeans in my second Stitch Fix and got skinny jeans in my first fix, I've been interested in the styles. Since I can't go spending $78 on every pair of jeans, I thought I'd browse Old Navy the other day when I had some super cash burning a hole in my pocket. I tried on a couple pairs and was able to find some that I loved - one pair in blue and one pair in black! And now? I'm not sure where skinny jeans have been my whole life! I've been wearing them with my Toms and with my new Converse almost everyday!

I found this pin on Pinterest yesterday and found it to be so helpful and insightful. I knew a couple of the tips already, but some of them were new (and genius!) to me!
I've been seeing this floating around the internet lately and think it's hilarious. And so, so true. I swear it hit 60 degrees the other day and I thought I was going to freeze to death.
And with that, we're back to 80 degrees this weekend (or so the weather forecast says). Fall, come back!
