5 on Friday

It's been a hot minute since I linked up for a 5 on Friday so I'm excited to share some recent happenings with you!

One. All Hail Fall
Everyone is going nuts over Fall like it's the first season of our lives but I am admittedly guilty myself. There is just something about the crisp air, crunchy leaves, and coziness that makes Fall so amazing. This past weekend I picked up some Fall goodies to help me get in the mood. Trader Joe's is on point for all things pumpkin you guys! You better believe I've been slapping that pumpkin cookie butter on anything and everything.

I'm so ready to cook up lots of yummy Fall treats! Here are 10 recipes to put you in the Fall spirit.

Two. Rocksbox
I'm the first to admit that I have been less than underwhelmed with subscription boxes in the past. Remember this post? I must say, though, I've been perpetually pleased with Rocksbox. I love getting 3 new high end pieces each month and then just sending them back for more! Here's my latest box.


You can try a box for free with code BRITTANYBFF300.

Three. Other Projects 
Have you heard the phrase you make time for things that matter to you? That's kind of how I feel about some projects I've been working on. I've been contributing to Girl-ish and and Willow House Magazine. These are both great sites that produce quality content so I'm happy to join in! But I won't say it's not been difficult to fit it all in. But it's been great thus far. I'm patting my back for this article on Hostess Gifts.  Check both these sites out for some new reading material and community!


Four. My Rescues
The past two weeks have been so rewarding for me. I've been fostering the two sweetest dogs that have had the hardest life. These two babies were found abandoned in a dumpster in horrible shape.

When I saw it posted from a local girl I know on Facebook I knew I had to help. Luckily, I was able to foster them until they go on their next journey to a great rescue group called SOUL Dog Rescue in Indiana. There will be LOTS of bittersweet tears tomorrow as I say goodbye to them but I'm so happy they will be getting a second chance at a great life. If you know anyone looking for a dog please share the word! I desperately want these angels to find an amazing home. I've had such a great experience loving on them and getting them out of their shells.

Five. Freaking Weekend
All the rainy and chilly weather this week has me so ready for the weekend. I'm hoping to win big at some horse racing this weekend!


What are your weekend plans?

  3. That's amazing you've been fostering. I really wish I could do that but Starla is such a queen that she wouldn't be too nice on puppies who need a warm, friendly house.

  9. 1. I am going to TJ's tomorrow and my daughter wrote on the grocery list for me to buy her Pumpkin Bites? They are some kind of pumpkin cookie that she had at her Grandmother's house and is obsessed with. I will report back but I already know they are going to rock because Trader Joe's. That pic of your foster puppies made me tear up a little. How could someone be so mean to animals? It makes me so sad. That is lovely of you to care for them. Have a wonderful weekend! xo

  10. LOVE that you're fostering dogs. If I can talk my husband into this, it's definitely something I want to look into! And girl, I went crazy at Trader Joes last night. I bought one of everything pumpkin flavored - ha! We're having grilled cheese and pumpkin soup for dinner tonight :)

  11. You are so amazing to foster those pups! I hope they find their forever homes! And dang old TJs and all their pumpkin goodies. I bought a box of pumpkin Joe-Joes (think pumpkin cookie butter sandwhich cookies) and they are addicting. I tried to be good and not buy all the other pumpkin things I wanted. But I'll be back this weekend (because I'll be out of Joe-Joes) and who knows what all will end up in the cart!

  16. Love that you foster and give those sweet dogs a second chance! I have always wanted to do it, but I'm afraid I will want to keep all of them!

  17. I am so excited for all things pumpkin too!!

  18. So I'm down a subscription box and I'm not going to try Rocksbox! Fostering those little ones makes you an angel!! Here's hoping they find fantastic homes.

  19. Yay for rescue animals! I hope they both find great homes. Great Rocksbox (love those KS earrings). And congrats on your other projects:)

  20. Bless you, Brittany. I can't even, how anyone could just dump a dog. Good for you. They are adorable.

  21. How sweet of you to take in those dogs. Awesome! And TJs is dangerous in the Fall. I seriously want to buy everything! I was there a few weeks ago and one employee said they hadn't received everything pumpkin yet. WHAT?? What could they possibly be lacking? And I know I need it in my life. Hope you're having a good weekend, even with a quiet, dog-less house.
