Five On Fri-YAY

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

First full week of autumn and we are still hovering in the low 90s! Ha!

I ordered the cahhhh-utest matching Christmas outfits the other day for the girls from (shocker) Zulily ... they are green corduroy, matching little pants and shirt set, with a Christmas tree embroidered on the front. But goodness, I'm remembering back two Christmases ago when Camille wore short sleeves! Hopefully we will get a chill in the air that will stay through the holidays so that my girls can actually wear these!

My mom came in town for Wednesday evening and we did a little blind taste test on some inexpensive (supah-inexpensive) white wines from Aldi. Flirty Bird sauv blanc comes in at $3.99 and Coastal Cove sauv blanc is a whopping $6.99.

She and I are alike in so many ways, BUT she favored the Flirty Bird and I favored Coastal Cove! She's more of a pinot grigio preferrer, and the Flirty Bird has less of that citrusy zing that a lot of New Zealand SBs have, so that helped shape her opinion. But of course I'm a sucker for that particular tartness, so I like the one on the right!

Even if you may not want to serve a $4-7 wine for your in-laws on Thanksgiving, they sure do make great Wednesday night wines!

Fall candle poll! What's your favorite scent?

I'm finishing up some of our springy scents around the home and ready to start burning the fall ones. I do have a giveaway coming for you soon of some really wonderful NC-born-and-bred candles! I know we all love a delicious-smelling home. :)

Please look at what Ian did to Camille's room! He put the lights on a timer so they come on for about 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes right before bedtime. They were reading Fancy Nancy one night and noticed how Nancy has lights strung up in her room, and that became their special little project. She loves her new lights (he said she can keep them up through Halloween) and we love seeing how proud she is of her room!

This Sunday I will be participating in a pop-up shop at the Argyle Alligator on East Boulevard (new location near 300 East). Bows, bonnets, and bibs galore will be at our booth! I have also started making bow holders which are so very sweet! Please do stop by from 3-6.
