cornflake dreams.: friday five.

friday five.

Happy Friday! I'm linking up with ChristinaApril, and Natasha today to share five things on my mind:
ONE: I don’t visit Target very often because like a lot of people I go in for one small things (tights for Violet) and I leave the store with a ton of things I didn’t plan on buying!! I'm not too upset about it though because I found some pretty cute things for the holidays: large + small felt trees for our mantle / red and white bakers twine + gold bells (= easy DIY ornaments).
TWO: Speaking of Christmas -- I'd love a plaid tree skirt for our tree. Thankfully my mom offered to make us one (yah!) but these ones are cute too: burgundy plaid / black buffalo check / tartan plaid
THREE: Our grocery store had BOGO Naan, so I made Indian food twice this week! Don’t be too impressed…the sauce for both dishes was from a jar. But now I want to explore more vegetarian recipes.
FOUR: H and I started watching reruns of Modern Family the other week. We stopped watching it few years ago because it was getting a little too corny with all of the Full House "everyone learn a lesson” endings. But I’m glad we gave it another chance! It’s been making us laugh a LOT. 
FIVE: Don’t forget to enter the Dove giveaway! A winner will be emailed next Tuesday (11/17).

Have a great weekend!

  1. Those felt trees and skirts are so cute! Love them. And yes to all of the Indian food. One of our favorites too... although we've never made it at home.

  5. Cooking Indian at home has been one of our favorite things–we loved finding the (a?) secret to our favorite tikka masala! And I'm smitten with Sugar's Target holiday collection!

  12. OMG, I feel your pain with Target. Damn them for having such amazing things. I even do that online! I go on their website to get one thing and checkout is $300+. They kill me but I love them.

  16. Love those plaid tree skirts! It took all myself control not to buy everything in the Target holiday aisles today. I love Modern Family but I feel like I found it so much funnier once I had kids, I started to be able to relate to them much more.

  18. I didn't start watching Modern Family until a couple years ago. I think it's hilarious. But yes, some of the plots are really corny. Love the plaid tree skirts! I wonder if my sewing skills are enough to make one? Circles are hard :)

  20. Same here with Target! Ugh! I go in for laundry detergent and then $100 later...I love that tartan tree skirt! We made our first one last year and it was really easy! I do love Modern Family, especially the first two years. I took a break last spring because it didn't seem as funny, but then when I 'm not expecting it they totally nail it! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
