Five on Friday... why I love November!

Friday, November 7, 2014

Happy November!! My very favorite month [December is a close 2nd]. Here are my top 5 reason why this month is the best month:

[ONE]
November in NC is the month when the weather finally starts staying cool. This month is perfect for my favorite outfit: dress + boots. Sweaters, scarves, PSL's, apple cider, boots, leggings, etc. I love cool weather! It is so nice to not walk out the front door and begin dripping sweat by the time you reach your car [hello, NC summers]. 

[TWO]
Birthday month! TODAY is my momma's birthday. I love this woman so much. She is my best friend. She does so much for me and my sisters.

Last night was all about celebrating HER! We went to a wine tasting/Christmas decoration show then to a delicious dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in Greenville, Starlight Cafe. On Thursday night they let you bring your own wine/Champagne in and only charge you a "corking fee" so we took total advantage of that [in case you haven't figured this out by now, I am champs obsessed]. Aaaaand a week from today is my birthday! November has so many birthdays and let's be honest, who doesn't love birthday cake??

[THREE]
Thanksgiving! My faaavorite holiday ever! Christmas is my #1 favorite because of all the decorations and Christmas cheer, but Thanksgiving is basically Christmas without the ridiculous amount of presents + amazingly good food. I wish Christmas wasn't all about presents these days. That's why I love Thanksgiving... it's all about gathering with family and enjoying time together without focusing on material things.

[FOUR]
Fall nail colors. I am slightly nail polished obsessed and my favorite colors are dark. When the temps start getting cool I can finally feel like it is acceptable to keep my nails in grays/blacks/browns. My very fav is OPI's "You Don't Know Jacques". Try it... you won't be disappointed!!



[FIVE]
Crock pot meals. Need I say more? My two favorites are homemade chicken noodle soup and chicken chili.
