Being Brickner : Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Happy Friday & Happy ONE WEEK until BLACK FRIDAY! 
Just think, exactly one week from today we will in the complete madness & hysteria of all that this "holiday" has to offer. To say I am excited is an understatement. :)
In the meantime, here are my five!

ONEPolka Dot Print.  As a true fashion lover, there are really few prints I discriminate against.  With that being said, there are some tried & true options that are my absolute favorites.  Polka dots are one of those & without a doubt, Waverly Maye can rock them like the best of them.
 
 
Really, is there anything cuter than a baby girl in this classic combo?!  This one-piece from BabyGap is sold out, but there are a couple of holiday options that I totally have my eye on (here & here).  Yes, both have polka dots AND holiday goodness all wrapped into one, which is clearly polka-dot perfection.
 
 TWO:  Target Paper Goods.  The Target dollar bins can suck me in any day of the year, but right now they are better than ever!  I picked up these labels & glitter tape this week & plan to use them with kraft paper to wrap all my presents. 
 
 
Now onto making that list & checking it twice!  I cannot believe Santa is about to make his debut!
 
Three:  We are definitely feeling the Christmas cheer over here, but are still embracing November & all things thankful.  We make goodies for our family & friends for each holiday, but there is obviously no better time than Thanksgiving.  After turning to Pinterest for some inspiration, I decided on a classic autumn mix this year.
 
 
I totally have a weakness for a sweet & salty mix, so we filled our own canisters with the extras!  Which made me so thankful & so not thankful for all of this festive food of the season at the same time.
 
FOUR:  This Thursday will be Waverly Maye's second official Thanksgiving, so I felt it was time for her very own thankful tree.  I can't help but love a tradition & feel like this is completely a worthwhile one!  Since Waverly isn't quite ready yet to do it on her own, I felt comfortable giving her a helping hand this year.  I'm sure she will "thank" me later. :)
 
 
FIVE:  I'm certain that if my hubby was to do his own tree, after his wife & child, his next branch would list Bud Light.  Apparently Waverly Maye has picked up on how very thankful he is.  My parents took her to Target this week while I was at work ... and said she ran to a huge beer displaying pointing & saying "dada".  Proud dad moment right there, honey! :)  We know what his drink of choice will be at Thanksgiving dinner!
 
I am grateful for this link-up & really do look forward to it each week!!  Thank you to Darci & the ladies for hosting it & thank YOU for reading!
XOXO

  1. Waverly is so adorable in that outfit!! Such a happy girl! I've also raided Target's dollar section a lot lately, some of the stuff I'm not sure how I'll use but its cute and cheap and I can't pass it up! haha! Last time I went they also had a beer bottle opener that looks like a silver credit card, which I'm throwing in my hubby's stocking!

  23. Target is amazing, but Target dollar bins are the best. I don't care if I was just at the store two days prior, I'm still taking a cruise through the dollar bin in case anything new is there. Hope you have a great weekend! :)
