5 on Friday

I love these types of posts because it's a time where I can get totally random and just spew whatever is on my mind! 

1. If anyone knows me or follows me on Instagram, you know that I love to 'craft'. I dabble in just about any and everything. Right now I'm obsessed with accessories for my little man. Check out what I've been working on this week. 

The top two bandana bibs are going out to a lucky little fellow but every bib I make for someone else I make one for Kingston too. Win win! Also, I upcycled this children's place jacket into a vest. I found it at a consignment store for $1.50 - cut off the sleeves, took a blade to it and added a little bleach! 
So cute and so trendy! 

2. This year I'm planning on making most of my Christmas gifts (if friends or family read this - act surprised when you get them!). I might as well put my craftiness to good use and save a little money. I'm thinking jewelry, scarves, candles . . . who knows! 
What handmade gift is your go to? I can always use new ideas. 

This is one gift I made - a hand embroidered monogram necklace. 
Think about all the different possibilities. 

3. The countdown has begun. I'm anxiously awaiting next Thursday night - Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder.
 Check out what else I'm watching this fall.

4.  CT has his first home football game tomorrow. Fingers crossed that Kingston has a better second half then he did at his last football game. He gets super fussy when he's tired, but I'm not complaining because when he does sleep he sleeps for 7+ hours (at 7 weeks - go BabyWise!). 

5. I officially have two months left on maternity leave. It's crazy how fast time is going by. If only I could be on permanent maternity leave and stay at home with my baby forever. *sigh* A girl can dream. If you'd like to help me accomplish this goal - check out my Etsy shop. 

I'd give anything to stay at home with this cutie all day every day!

Kingston's Closet - Crushin'

Just a few items I'm crushin' on for Kingston's closet.

Etsy has some really fun graphic tee's for the little ones and I'm trying to decide which one Kingston needs first. Santa needs to hurry up and come because my wallet can't handle all this cuteness. 

Help me decide - which is your favorite?

5 on Friday

1. Well, fall has smacked us right in the face with the whole weather change. 52 degrees today. What the fudgesicles?! Maybe I'm a baby but I had to turn on the heater in my car this morning. AND we don't really have the appropriate clothing pieces for our little man. Time for me to go find him some itty bitty jackets and sweaters. Anyone seen any good deals lately? 

2. Someone needs to make an invention that keeps a paci in a babies mouth. I know this would make my life easier. Can I get an Amen?

3. Tomorrow CT heads to Nebraska for the second weekend in a row for another football game. Kingston and I made the trip last weekend and surprisingly the drive went really well. We went up early to stop off at my parents house for a few hours and to help cut the trip time down. The first peep he made ended up being as we were pulling into town = score! Unfortunately, we messed up his 'routine' and the second half of the football game was brutal. 
I have a cranky baby when he's tired. 

4. I have two small packs of disposable diapers left and then we will embark on a cloth diapering adventure. I built our cloth diaper 'stash' while I was pregnant and since having Kingston I've realized how easy and convenient disposables are. CT really wants to try them out but I need a little more convincing. 

5. Allergies suck. 
My eyes itch. My throat itches. I'm sneezing a thousand times. It's brutal. I didn't have them as a kid and came into them during college. I wish them on no one.

Favorite Fall TV Shows

I use to think that Spring was my favorite season and time of year. As I've gotten older and realized that with Spring comes tornadoes, something I'm deathly afraid of, (read more about my emergency bag here) Fall has easily become my favorite season. 

Fall sports. Fall weather. Fall fashion. Fall shows.
 I love them all.

I've always been a TV junkie but since getting DVR a few years back things have only gotten worse. It's too easy to record any and every show that tickles my fancy. I'm looking forward to the end of this month when some of my favorite shows return.

1. Scandal 
(Starting Sept. 25 - Thursdays)

A thriller/drama mixed with a high profile love affair and great fashion. If you aren't a gladiator and have yet to jump on the Oliva Pope bandwagon, I suggest you catch up on all previous seasons and be in front of the TV Sept. 25th at 9:00pm. This is one of those shows that I wish I could watch every night.
 It's that good. 

2. Grey's Anatomy 
(Starting Sept. 25 - Thursdays)

I have only watched the last few seasons but this is your typical hospital drama. Supply room romances where everyone has dated everyone. It's hard not to get hooked because there is always so much going on. Hopefully this season is as good as all the others without one of their best doctors, Christina Yang (Sandra Oh).  

3. Once Upon a Time 
(Starting Sept. 28 - Sundays)

CT makes fun of me for watching this one, but it hooked me from the beginning  It's all your story book characters on the big screen. The writer incorporates the fairytales we all know with some fresh new twists. I also heard the characters of Frozen are going to be on this season. Good call by writers since it's all the rave these days. 

4. Arrow 
(Starting Oct. 8 - Wednesdays)

This is a show about a billionaire hottie who was stranded on an island for years. He vowed to avenge his fathers wrong doings by coming back home to 'save his city'. He is the modern day Superman in Starling City.

5. Awkward 
(Starting Sept. 23 - Tuesdays)

This show is exactly that - awkward. High school romances, snotty girls and everyone trying to become popular. The humor in this one is what has me coming back.

I'm also really looking forward to the new premier of How To Get Away With Murder. It is written by the same lady (Shonda Rhimes) who writes Scandal and Greys - and will be on Thursdays also. She hasn't disappointed yet, so I'm sure this will be as big of a hit as the others. 

Looks like I might have to get a babysitter for Thursday nights so I can veg out in front of the TV. That or I'll just send Kingston to the bedroom with CT to watch some football. ;)

What are you favorite fall shows? 
Any I should add to my ever growing DVR list?
