But I'm jumping ahead ~ today is Friday so let's take a look at this week's five:
1. Jamberry Nails
A few weeks ago (actually it was a month ago, but that just doesn't seem possible) I went on a trip to Dallas to see Ed Sheeran in concert. I blogged about it HERE. A very cool Jamberry Nails Rep, Ellen, had sent me a sample set of nails to see if I liked them. I thought that weekend away would be the perfect time to try them out because I didn't want to risk having chipped nails just in case Ed wanted to hold my hand. Well, the nails worked out great! Unfortunately, no hand holding by Ed took place. Have you ever tried the Jamberry Nails? There are SOOOO many cool designs!! I'm in love with the Halloween ones. Think I might have to get me some. If you're interested in checking out all the styles or purchasing some, click HERE. They were really easy to apply and lasted until I took them off. Which one is your Halloween favorite?
2. The Martian
The Martian opens today and it looks like a movie Eric and I both can enjoy. Here's how Rotten Tomatoes summarizes it: "During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring "the Martian" home, while his crewmates
3. Say Cheese -- It's World Smile Day
Go ahead -- give everyone your best smile today because it's World Smile Day. I imagine everyone will wonder what you're up to if you walk around with a big smile on your face, but that's okay. Let them wonder. It's been proven that smiling relieves stress, boosts your immune system and lowers your blood pressure. Sounds like some pretty good reasons to show that grin!
4. After You: A Novel
If you read Me Before You, then I'm sure you are as excited as I am that After You came out this week. Jojo Moyes wrote a true gem in Me Before You. Basically it's a very unique love story between Louisa and Will, two people that couldn't be more different. It made me laugh and cry. Read it stat if you haven't then you'll be all set to read this sequel.

Got big plans for the weekend? The weather is supposed to be a bit on the cool side here in St. Louis so I'm thinking I might try to change out my closet to my fall/winter stuff. My friend Mary is coming next weekend to help me with my closet and I don't want it to be a total mess when she arrives. I know, it's kind of like cleaning your house before the cleaning lady comes but that's just me. We have a brand new IKEA store that just opened so I definitely want to swing by there this weekend. Stop back by on Monday to see what else I managed to do (or not do!). Have a great one!
