Five on Friday (September 2017)...

Happy Friday! I'm having a very hard time coming to terms with Summer being over and Fall officially beginning and the only thing getting me through is the idea of being able to start decorating for Halloween and that it's now finally acceptable to bring out my boots and scarves. Goodbye Summer 2017, I'll miss you!

I haven't done a Five on Friday post in a hot minute but I have some spare time before I have to leave for work so here we go!

Summer is now officially over and I'm more than a little upset about it. I feel like I barely got to enjoy Summer and I definitely didn't come close to crossing everything off of my Summer Bucket List (whomp whomp). The only thing that will get me through the next few months is counting down to Halloween and Christmas, my two favourite holidays. 

I didn't really get to do much shopping while in the Twin Cities last weekend for the Jays games - we went to a game each day so there just weren't enough hours in the day - so my plan to start Christmas shopping while I was there was dashed. But since I made it one of my goals for September to get started on my Christmas shopping I'm going to start online this weekend and then hopefully find some things when I head to the Queen City on Tuesday for my orthodontist appointment. A new HomeSense and Marshalls just opened up in the area of the city I'll be in and I can't wait to check it out! 

This Is Us was released on Canadian Netflix on Wednesday and I cannot wait to start bingewatching it! I've only seen the first two episodes because I couldn't keep up with it in real time so I'm hoping I can watch Season 1 and then will be able to keep up with it this year. Also, Beauty and the Beast was released on Tuesday and even though I've already seen it I was so excited to see that it would be on Netflix PLUS Season 13 of Grey's Anatomy will be on there by the end of the month so for once I won't be spending what feels like hours trying to decide what to watch! 

Today is payday - halle-freakin-lujah. Payday Fridays are my favourite Fridays. I've been so good with my budget lately but with Fall approaching (and now here) I've been so tempted to go crazy with the spending. I tried a few things on at Lululemon at the MOA that I LOVED and planned on ordering over the next few months but now that I tried them on I just want them NOW. I also told myself last year when I finally threw away my beaten up 8 year old UGGS that I would buy myself a new pair for Christmas 2017 and I also just want them now. I did buy myself the Michael Kors jet set wallet (that matches my tote) while at the outlet in Eagan over the weekend so I have to keep reminding myself of that and that I need to slowly buy things to stay on budget and that I don't need everything all at once. It's just that once I have an idea in my head it's hard to reign myself in. If someone could send me some willpower that would be great. 

I'm almost done my Fall Bucket List (hoping to have it posted on Monday) and even though Fall isn't my favourite season I am excited to get working on crossing off things on my list so at least I have that to help me get over my sadness that Summer is 252 days away. Not that I'm counting...

Have a great weekend!
