Five on Friday [10.7.17]

Happy Friday!!  So excited it's Friday!  Fall Break is next week and we have the entire week off!!  The icing on the cake is that I'm kicking it off with an old friend tonight attending the Symphony featuring Joshua Bell as the soloist!  So. excited.  For now, though, here are this week's five:

I shared these darling Halloween plates that dear friend KF uses in her home earlier this week.  They really are just too cute!

Our 4th graders visited the State House this week.  Both our district Senator and Representative were kind enough to come talk with the kiddos.  Even with all that is going on in our country right now, this trip never fails to remind me just how grateful I am to be an American.

The first Thursday of every month the Indianapolis Museum of Art offers free admission.  I took advantage of a rainy afternoon and strolled through the exhibits. I was instantly transported me back to Paris -- when I visited the Louvre every single day for a month.

Hubby and I rented HBO's Big Little Lies last weekend.  I knew I loved the book, and while the book is usually better than the movie (or series, in this case) this was pretty darn good.  Hubby even got into it!

This weekend Peyton Manning is being inducted into the Colts' Ring of Honor.  Boy, do we miss him! He did BIG things for our city, far beyond the football field, and how very lucky we were to have him!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Sip and Shop Sunday [Fiesta Halloween]

Happy Sunday!  It has been the quintessential beautiful fall weekend here in Indy!  Absolutely gorgeous!  So today, we're sipping on Honeycrisp Sangria and shopping Halloween.

I popped over to see dear friend KF the other day and she was just putting out her Halloween decor. I just have to share these adorable plates by Fiesta.

She has a wide selection of patterns and has them displayed all around the house in little vignettes, replacing hanging plates, and has little ramekins holding candies.  

Spooky Skeletons
They are the perfect way to add a little Halloween subtly.  I would have loved to have snapped a few pics for you, but she was just too embarrassed, saying things weren't tidy enough.  (If only my house was as "nontidy" as hers....) 

Boo Cats
She found her plates and ramekins at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and enjoyed using her coupons, too!

We usually decorate for Fall and kind of gloss right over Halloween, but these just too cute.

Happy Halloween Decorating!
