Five on Friday: {October 9, 2015}


Hey Gals! As I mentioned yesterday, this week has been insane, I've been super crazy at work, plus I've been planning a last minute trip to the west coast (more on that below!). So this weekend could not come soon enough - while I count down the hours til it's officially the weekend, as always, we're kicking off our five favorites of the week!



Wheel of Fortune Taping!


You may recall that I previously mentioned that I tried out and was selected to be on Wheel of Fortune. It's been a waiting game to hear when my taping date will be.. until now! I just received the call last week that I was selected to tape on October 15th, so off to LA I go! It's so crazy that they only give you about 2 weeks notice to get out to LA, but luckily I was able to get off of work and plan an impromptu trip out west! I'm beyond excited (and also pretty nervous!) but I'm trying to tell myself that even if I don't win big, it's still going to be an amazing, bucket-list type experience and to just enjoy every second of it. Plus, GG and my sister Kelsey will be coming with me to cheer me on, so no matter what it's going to be an amazing trip. I'll keep everyone posted once the episode is set to air, but for now, just think good thoughts for me while I'm out trying to win big money, big money!!


Dinner at SUR


Naturally I couldn't miss an opportunity to dine at my favorite reality tv restaurant, SUR, while out in LA!! I can't wait to rub elbows with Lisa VDP and Jax, and hopefully I can steal a picture or two while I'm there. SUR is pretty much the only thing I have planned as of now - I wasn't kidding when I said this was a last minute trip! So if anyone has any recommendations of things to hit up while in LA, please, please let me know!

Apple Picking

This LA trip has totally thrown me for a loop, so I'm so happy we were able to squeeze in lots of family time last weekend and go apple picking with Little M! We had a complete blast, and I couldn't stop snapping pictures of Little M picking (and trying to eat!) alllll of the apples!

American Horror Story - Hotel


And now to take a complete left turn - did anyone else watch the season premier of American Horror Story? I've been a long-time fan of the series, and with the addition of Lady Gaga this season, I couldn't wait for the premiere. I won't give any spoilers, but let's just say, I'm not so sure about it this season. The first episode was pretty graphic for my tastes, but I'm not quite ready to abandon ship just yet. What did everyone else think of the first episode? Do you think this season has potential?

October Cocktail Link-Up


This coming Tuesday is our monthly cocktail party link-up, so don't forget to join us, and share your favorite cocktail recipe! As  always, we aren't much for rules, so feel free to take little creative license - wine, beer, mocktails, glassware.. we love it all! We'll be trying out yet another new for us spirit (if you can believe there are any out there that are actually new to us!!), so be sure to join in on the boozy fun!


And with that, we're putting another week to bed and looking forward to a fun weekend!


Cheers to April, AmandaJennieKarliClare, Rebecca, Katie, Heather, Annie, and Tif for hosting today's link-ups!

  3. That's so awesome that you got selected for a taping of Wheel of Fortune! I hope that you win some money or something else exciting! We visited LA earlier this year and loved it! We ate at SUR and it was exactly like it was on the show! We didn't see any of the main people while we were there but Lisa's son was one of our bus boys/runners and Stassi's good friend was waiting tables in our section. We also did an all day tour while we were there called A Day In LA that was really good! I've got a couple of posts about LA if you want more info! Have so much fun, I know that you'll have a blast!

  8. Little M apple picking... SO cute!! My sister lived in L.A. for a year and she took me to Sur!! The food is very good, not fabulous but pretty good. It was fun seeing people taking pictures with all of the people from the show too. We also went to a place called The Tasting Kitchen in Venice that was really good. That area has a lot of cute shops and restaurants too. The Grove is actually pretty too, and they have a a few outdoor cafes and a farmers market. Its fun to walk around there. Rodeo Drive is fun to walk around in too. Kind of like Fifth Ave with palm trees. :-) Anyways, have a wonderful trip and I hope that you ladies have a great weekend too!! :-)

  10. Ahhhh congrats girl on being selected for Wheel of Fortune! You're going to have so much fun and YAY for L.A. dining - you should hit up Villa Blanca too. AHS is still sitting on my DVR, but I remember last season was "meh" so I was hoping they will make up for it this season *fingers crossed*.

    Happy Friday <3

  14. I was intrigued by this new season of American Horror Story, but as with every other show, forgot to watch it. I'll go see if it's on demand and maybe give it one episode to see if I like it or now. Have so much fun on the wheel! That's AMAZING!

  20. Wow! Congrats on getting selected for for WOF! It would be amazing if you won something to bring home but Im sure the experience alone will be amazing! Just curious, do they pay for your flight over and the hotel or you expected to pay for all of those things? It's great you have some people coming along to support you.
