I LOVE the Friday Five

This week was spent resting from the Andrew wedding last weekend and preparing for the King wedding this weekend. Let's just say - I LOVE that it is Friday!

Alpha Phi's - AOE

Here are your Friday Five:

1. I LOVE Amanda and Nick. Another one of my closest friends is getting married tomorrow and I LOVE that I will be there to celebrate. Congrats Amanda and Nick! I'll tell you the same thing I told Kellie & Jason:

Take mental pictures the entire day because it will go by fast. Don't stress about anything because everything will come together perfectly and at the end of the day - you'll be married. October 1, 2011 is the beginning of your lives together as a married couple - enjoy every minute!


2. I LOVE Halloween. Since tomorrow is the start of October my mind continuously thinks about Halloween. I LOVE dressing up and getting together with friends. I LOVE making Halloween themed foods and am sure I will post about them in the near future. Halloween is a reason to do something different and fun so I think everyone should go all out! I bought my dog, Tucker, his Halloween costume and he looks so funny in it. We live at the beach so I felt it was appropriate that Tucker dresses up as a shark this year. Here is what he'll look like (except he is chocolate):

3. I LOVE to see people having a good time. You know what I mean...when you are out and you see people laughing or cutting up and they look as though they don't have a care in the world. I LOVE that. Seeing other people in a great mood usually puts me in a great mood. This weekend make sure you are having fun no matter where you are or what you are doing. You'll be surprised at how great you will feel and how it will change the attitude of people around you for the better.

4. I LOVE boots. Fall weather means it is time to start wearing your favorite boots again. I LOVE how boots can make or break an outfit. I LOVE that they are stylish yet still keep your feet warm. I LOVE many different types of boots. Here are some that I am LOVING this fall:

5. I LOVE Folly Beach. I LOVE any beach, really. Folly Beach is special because it is where Michael and I spent our weekends since we moved here almost 3 years ago and it is where we were married. My mother-in-law took these pictures of Folly - isn't it beautiful?! No, they aren't photoshopped!

What have you fallen in LOVE with today? Have a great weekend!
LOVE, sje
ps: Happy Birthday, Kayley!
Gotta LOVE this old picture of us but let's get a more recent one this weekend!

I LOVE this curling wand

If you want long lasting, gorgeous curls you have to buy the Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Curling Wand from Target. Two of my friends have this wand and their hair looks amazing every time they use it. This past weekend my friend (and personal hairstylist when I am with her) used it on my hair and I fell in LOVE with this curling wand. It doesn't have a clamp so your curls won't have pressed ends. It comes with a glove so you don't burn your fingers while holding your hair onto the wand. It sounds complicated but I promise it is easy to use. I will be purchasing this wand for myself asap!

I LOVE the Friday Five

Happy first day of Fall!
Fall is here

Friday has arrived! Here are your Friday Five:

1. I LOVE Kellie & Jason. Tomorrow I will be attending the wedding of one of my best friends, Kellie. I am so excited to celebrate with her as she becomes a Mrs.

Kellie and Jason: Take mental pictures the entire day because it will go by fast. Don't stress about anything because everything will come together perfectly and at the end of the day - you'll be married. September 24, 2011 is the beginning of your lives together as a married couple - enjoy every minute!

2. I LOVE How Art Thou? Cafe Click here to visit their facebook page. Today is their Grand Opening so if you live in Charleston - make sure you stop by! They are located at 1956 Maybank Highway, Charleston, SC 29412 - right beside the Terrace Theater. They are open from 6am-Midnight. Stop in for coffee and a pastry before work, a sandwich and juice for lunch, or a craft beer or wine at night. Tonight there will be live music beginning around 7:30pm. The owners have worked extremely hard on this Cafe and I know their hard work will pay off. Come support this local business!
Make sure to order a red velvet cupcake - you will be SO glad you did!

3. I LOVE these glasses. They are basically mason jars on a stem, although, they are so unique and beautiful in their own way. If you LOVE them also you can buy them at How Art Thou? which is another reason to go tonight!

4. I LOVE bows. Bows are pretty and will make any outfit more feminine. They can be chic or girly. Bows make any outfit look polished and put together. They look great on any age. Bows never go out of style.

5. I LOVE Corduroy. Corduroy is a great way to mix up your wardrobe in the fall and winter. It is a stylish fabric that will keep you warm when the weather is cool.

I LOVE relating to a quote

I'm sure you all know those quotes that you read and immediately relate too. You read it and think "that's so me" or "I've been there" and it stirs up some kind of emotion. The quotes can make you laugh, cry, or want to scream. I LOVE reading these quotes.

Below are a few that I have recently related too (in no particular order):

I LOVE new seasons of TV

Finally...new seasons of my favorite shows start this week! Michael and I LOVE to end the work day with our favorite TV shows. It's our time to relax and laugh along with our favorite characters.

What a way to kick off the new season of TV with the Emmy's last night. Way to go Modern Family for sweeping the comedy category. If you haven't watched Modern Family yet I highly suggest you add it to your list of shows to watch.

Best dressed at the Emmy's, in my opinion, goes to:
Gwyneth Paltrow! She is stunning in a black beaded Emilio Pucci gown. I LOVE how she only shows a little bit of skin on her most flattering areas. I LOVE that she kept her hair and jewelry simple since the dress has so many details.

and Runner-Up, in my opinion, goes to:
Sofia Vergara! Her coral Vera Wang gown fits her like a glove and her Colombian Emerald earrings are fabulous!

The shows I LOVE to watch are:
Monday - Dancing with the Stars (ABC) and Monday Night Football (ESPN).
Go Kristin Cavallari!

Tuesday- The Biggest Loser (NBC) and Dancing with the Stars Results Show (ABC).

Wednesday- ABC has the best Wednesday night TV & makes me wish we had TiVo. The Middle & Modern Family. Last week we watched the season premier of Up All Night (NBC) and I think it will be a really funny show. I'm willing to give Suburgatory a chance since it is on the ABC lineup but I'm not sure it will be added to my favorites. During the commercials of The Middle, I'll watch The X Factor (FOX). I will not watch Revenge - it looks terrible and I am so tired of seeing the preview for it!

Thursday - NBC has the best Thursday night TV. Parks & Recreation and The Office. I am sad Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) is no longer on The Office and hope it continues to be a good show. I also wish 30 Rock was still on the Thursday night lineup, I LOVED that show! Since Whitney replaced 30 Rock, I'll give it a chance and hope it is just as funny. I'll also be tuning in to The X Factor results show (FOX).

Of course, the weekends will be filled with football.

What fall TV shows do you LOVE?
LOVE, sje
