The Friday Five

1.  I’m really particular about my pumpkin candles.  This Pumpkin Chai from NEST is my favorite!!  I bought mine at The Iron Gate in Franklin, TN…gorgeous store!!


2.  Do you get excited when the new Fall TV Shows come back?  Here are a few of my favorites and a couple of new ones that I’m watching!







3.  I know that we are all about pumpkin in the Fall, but it’s Honeycrisp Apple Season and they are heavenly.  Go and buy some right now!

4.  This week I pre-ordered Lauren Fleshman’s new Believe Training Journal.  If you order it through the Picky Bars website, you get 6 Picky Bars with an autographed copy.  My fan girl is coming out!

5.  This list from Ultra Runner Joe cracked me up!  I picked a few of my favorites to share…

How to Tell a Trail Runner from a Hipster

*Due to the athletic, muscular build of their legs, a trail runner cannot fit into skinny jeans.
*A trail runner showers in the creek or with baby wipes; a hipster showers at the YMCA or not at all.
*A trail runner drinks whatever beer is available at the finish line, but will wax poetic about craft beers on non-race days. A hipster will wax     poetic about craft beers, but will drink PBR at any given time.
*A trail runner has a well-groomed beard; a hipster has a…who am I kidding, their beards are equally out of control.
*Hipsters only eat free range organically grown food. Trail runners eat whatever you put within reaching distance.
*Hipsters wear tacky sweaters to make a statement. Trail runners wear tacky sweaters because they forgot how cold it is on the top of a mountain and that’s all they could find in the abandoned shed.

What Fall TV Shows are you excited about?

What are you up to this weekend?

Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!!!

    Jennifer, I love this list about the difference in trail runners and hipsters; the tacky sweater comment is so true! I’m looking forward (must watch the first episodes this weekend!) to Madam Secretary, The Good Wife and, for some reason, Jonathan and I are still watching Survivor – ha! Hope you have a great weekend!

    I am going to an amusement park this weekend for my daughter’s 13th birthday. We are having great weather here in Paris. I am in shorts and sandals… no sign of fall yet, except the chestnuts on the ground.
