Five on Friday - September 22, 2017

Happy Friday!  I've been out of town on business all week and can't believe it's already Friday.  But I would be lying if I said I wasn't delirious we have a weekend at hand!  Who doesn't love a weekend?!?

My five is a tad different than normal this week because  I haven't had a chance to research any new products to share with you, but thought I'd just share five things I loved about this past week.

1.  Sunsets
My home away from home this week was Big Cedar in Branson, Missouri.  Guys, I'm telling you, this place is so beautiful!  I wish I could have been spending my days at the pool, hiking and sitting on the porch of my room reading but unfortunately none of that happened.  It really makes me want to revisit this spot with Eric for a few days of R&R.  Back to sunsets -- I did break from work each day to take in the gorgeous sunsets.  Thought I'd share them with you ~

 2.  Front Porch
I shared my Fall decorations with you on my weekending post and am loving them more and more each time I see them.  Carol does such a great job!

The tall black planters have been so wonderful to have.  Most holidays and seasons we change them up and they have proven to be so versatile.  Interested in getting some for yourself?  Click HERE to see where we got ours.

3.  Billy Joel
Last night we went to the Billy Joel concert in St. Louis (hence, why this post is a bit late).  The concert was fabulous!  We sat in Busch Stadium, with the St. Louis Arch as a backdrop, while the 68 year old Piano Man did his thing.  It was fabulous!  After a week of unrest, I feel Billy Joel really did make us feel alright again.

4.  Etsy
I made my very first sale on Etsy this week and I'm so excited about it!  I only have a few listings, but this sale really has me motivated to dig in and get some other products listed.  And now I have a fun craft project to do over the weekend!  Yay!

5.  This is me....

Have a great weekend!  I'm hanging out with my girl friends tonight, which is just what I need after a long week.  The rest of the weekend is totally free so I see some relaxing and reading in my future.  See you soon!

  1. We visited Branson in May for a wedding - and that chapel looks like the one the wedding took place at! It was a beautiful place and I wish we could have spent more days there. We're hoping to return sometime!

  2. Ha ha! That last quote is totally me too! Congrats on your first Etsy sale. That is awesome. Beautiful sunsets, and I love your Fall decorations too. Have a fantastic weekend.

  3. Yay for a girl's night out tonight! Hope you have a great weekend.

    Your porch is so cute - love all the fall decorations. And the Billy Joel concert sounds awesome. Glad you had a great time.


  4. East or West, shoot, I struggle with left and rights most of the time LOL . I just adore your porch! It is beautiful!

  5. Awwww love beautiful sunsets....the sky was pink the other night and I was driving home with the windows down and I wanted to scream out "LOOK!!!! Look at this amazing sunset Mother Nature has given us!" But that would prob scare the neighbors lol.

    Billy Joel! He's on my musical bucket list! Sounds like a great show :) and love the fall decorations!

  6. I totally recommend going back to big cedar for a getaway. You'll love it, so much to do & see.

    How was the unrest at the concert? Was it easy to get around and what not? We have events the next 2 weekends down there so my fingers are crossed.

  7. I absolutely LOVE sunsets, and sunrises. They are just beautiful and there is nothing like them!!
    How fun to see Billy Joel. I bet he was pretty amazing!
    Your porch! Girl, can you come and do mine like this please?!?! Hahaha It's beautiful Penny!!
    And congrats on the Etsy sales! So fun =)

  8. Hey Penny,
    What a beautiful place you were. I've always wanted to go to Missouri but this place is definitely on the go to list.
    I bet the Billy Joel concert was pretty good. You know who I've always wanted to see but haven't? Phil Collins. Have you seen him in person?
    Congrats on the Etsy sale, that's awesome Penny. Keep going, you're awesome at what you do and incredibly talented. :)
