Five on Friday - October 31, 2014

Happy Halloween!  It's great when Halloween falls on Friday -- the kids don't have to get up for school the next day and it seems like the whole evening can be more laid back and fun.  And we get an extra hour this weekend -- how fun is that!

Here's this week's Five on Friday.

1.  Renee Zellweger
I'd like to make a catty comment -- what the heck happened to Renee Zellweger?!?!  I thought she was so cute before plastic surgery she started "taking care of herself".  Seriously, eat some Twinkies chick and start looking like your old self.  I seriously would not even recognize her.  Hey -- maybe the real Renee has been kidnapped and this really isn't even her!!

2.  Birthday Celebration Trip
Eric and I both have birthdays in November so we decided to take a little trip to celebrate this year. After much discussion, we are headed to Charleston, South Carolina!  Neither of us have been there before and we are looking forward to exploring the city.  We decided to stay at The French Quarter Inn at Market Square (love staying at great hotels!).  Any recommendations on things to do or places to eat while we are there?

3.  Saturday Night Live
If you like Prince, you won't want to miss Saturday Night Live tomorrow night.  Prince will be on the show as the musical guest -- his first on the show since 2006.  Apparently (via a statement by Rolling Stone), Prince will perform one, uninterrupted "eight-minute long jam session".  He has a new solo album out called ART OFFICIAL AGE and a debut album from his band 3rdEyeGirl, PLECTRUMELECTRUM.  The show's host will be Chris Rock.  Good times!


4.  Just for Halloween.

5. Standard Time
Just a reminder - this is the weekend to turn your clock back.  It's a free hour, folks -- enjoy it!  Do something  you always say you don't have time to do.  I'm thinking about using that hour to take a real, live bath.  You know, where you light some candles, sit in the tub, have some cool music playing in the background and sip a glass of wine.  Or I'll catch up on laundry.  It's a toss up.  What are you going to do?
Be safe and have a great Halloween!  See you back here next week.

  3. Ah Charleston! I went there for spring break a few years ago... there was thing great restaurant... oh what was it called? OH. The Blind Tiger. It was delicious. I'd definitely go back :) I hope you have a great time,
