Five for Friday!

1.) Celebrity engagement rings have gotten out of control. 
Two recently engaged stars, Kim Kardashian and Ciara, both received 15 carat diamond rings. Last time I checked, that's a cocktail ring, not an everyday ring to show you're off the market. Let's be real - we know those are blood diamonds and you could have "settled" for something a little smaller, dare I say 5 carats, and donated some of your money to charity.

2.) Ellen DeGeneres never fails to make me smile.
I have been a long time fan of Ellen and watch her show everyday on my DVR. Everything about her brings me so much joy, especially her Halloween costumes. This year was no exception, as she dressed up as Nicki Minaj in the ridiculous outfit she wore when she visited the Ellen show... on daytime tv.

3.) I believe in trying everything once, tattoos included.
Well, most things anyway. I have been thinking about getting a small tattoo in memory of my Mom. She probably would not have liked me honoring her in the form of permanent ink on my body - but you only live once and I have a really great idea that I wouldn't mind living the rest of my life with! Does anyone have a tattoo in memory of someone they lost? If so, what is it?

4.) I'm obsessed with my dog.
Yep, crazy dog lady over here and proud of it! I handed out candy last night at home and had the best assistant ever. Stella just silently sat there, in her Penn State jersey, and watched as kid after kid came to the door yelling trick or treat. She even posed for the camera, what a diva. Next year I think we'll invest in an actual costume since she proved herself this year - messy hair and all.

5.) We just hit the 10 months until the wedding mark.
And just like everyone said, time truly is flying and I can't believe it! We're going to be doing our registries this weekend at Crate & Barrel and Macy's. We really don't need much in the way of home and kitchen items, but I'm afraid when I get that little scanner gun in my hands, I'm going to think we need anything and everything in the store! Any tips I should know before we go?

Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!


  1. Haha I loved Ellen's costume yesterday. And I love when she scares people!

  2. See I think Ellen's costume is great and all but I was just expecting better. I wouldn't know who she was dressed up as if there wasn't the side by side thing. And I think you should definitely get the tattoo!

  3. I DVR Ellen every day too. Loved her costume!

  4. Two very, very good places to register if I do say so myself ;) I'll be stalking, obviously :)
