Five on Friday - October 10, 2014

This has been a super busy, crazy, fun week for me.  Monday and Tuesday nights we had tickets to the Cardinals games, Wednesday (after getting up early to see the eclipse) I went to So You Think You Can Dance Tour show, Thursday we were at the Blues Hockey opening night.  I am ready for the weekend (which will consists of two more baseball games).  I love weeks like this -- SO MUCH FUN!!  

Here's five things I've been thinking about this week.

1.  St. Louis Cardinals
It is so incredibly fun to be a Cardinals fan!  Playoff baseball is the absolute BEST.  We were fortunate to be able to go to the games in St. Louis on Monday and Tuesday.  St. Louis is such a baseball city.  October is like a huge holiday and most everyone is eating, breathing and living baseball.  GO CARDS!!

2.  SYTYCD Tour
Wednesday night I joined Debbie, Rachel and Lauren for dinner and So You Think You Can Dance Tour.  Holy moly -- those guys are soooo talented!!  Their dancing was AMAZING!  It was great fun.  The winner of the season, Ricky -- some of the moves he does makes me wonder if his legs are even attached to his body.  The tour is hitting 70 cities so they are probably coming to a city near you.


3.  Doughnut Pan
Now, I have been known to think I have to have a kitchen gadget only to let it set in my pantry for years some time.  But this doughnut pan -- no way is it sitting idle!  I saw Christina's recipe for Apple Cider Donuts and proceeded immediately to Bed, Bath and Beyond to purchase the pan.  I'm hoping to whip up a batch of them this weekend.  Doughnuts anyone?

4. 2015 Planner
Usually I have a very generic At-A-Glance calendar from Mead, but this year I'm thinking I want to mix it up a bit and use this one from Katie Daisy.  Look how cute it is!  It's going on my birthday wish list (um, Eric -- it's on my wishlist).  I have a slight concern because it's smaller than a piece of 8-1/2 x 11 paper and I do a lot of putting pieces of paper in my planner.  Do any of you have a favorite planner you would recommend?

5.  Quote
I think I might try this.


Enjoy your weekend!  I'll be back on Monday to recap my weekend and hopefully report on the Cardinal wins. 


  1. What I fun week! I hope the Cardinals and the Royals end up in the World Series!

  2. bahahahahaha seriously I love that last funny. I haven't had the chance to drop that on a random stranger but it's going to happen! Thanks so much for linking up!

  3. How did I not know about the donut pan!!!

  4. Haha I love that quote. If I thought I could keep it together I'd try it.

  5. I can't wait until Saturdays game!! Go CARDS!!!!!!!!!!

  6. I am so picky about my planners. I've searched and searched. I've found a lot that I adored the look of, but not the function. Last year, I picked up the Gallery Leather professionals planner (Barne's and Nobel). It has a full month view, and then it breaks each day out by hour. I'm in LOVE. I can no longer use a planner without hour breakdowns.

  7. Ooo!! I need to check out that donut pan!
