Friday Five.

1.  I didn't think I'd like the show Masters of Sex.  I'm completely on the fence about Lizzy Caplan.  I didn't like her character on True Blood, and that has biased me against her.  But she IS a good actress and I got drawn into the show last week.  Good writing, interesting characters, several sub-plots:  I suppose I'll keep watching.  Have you seen it?

2.  Great Pumpkin Swap partner information has gone out!  Let me or Becky know if you need anything!  Packages should be mailed by October 18th (next Friday), and we'll link up on October 25th!
I took the picture for this graphic 2 years ago on our trip to Boston.  
I can't believe it's been 2 years...we should go back.

3.  We went to a pumpkin patch last weekend.  

This is Nadia.  We met at the gym and she's the very first friend I made at Ft. Leonard-Wood (thank goodness for her!)

This is Kayla and her dog Ruby.  I've never seen such a cuddly ball of fluff before.  Ruby and Scout have playdates while I'm at school.  

4.  My school has this penchant for orange.  Everyone always wears orange.  It's the school color.  I own little to no orange.  Wednesday was "wear orange" day.  This is truly the only orange I own (aside from my orange and black school t-shirt).  I think I need to go shopping.  (Did I say "orange" enough for you?  I see orange in my sleep.)

Dress: Stitchfix // Boots: JCP (2011) // Leggings: Old Navy // Sweater: Macy's (old)

5.  Who's excited for The Walking Dead???  I spent the week watching the series marathon on AMC.  I won't cry at sad movies, but that scene where Rick sees his family at the campsite in Season 1 gets me every time.

I don't care:  I miss this guy.

Have a good weekend!


  1. I love seeing all the pumpkin patch pictures! :) Hoping to go to a few when Kyle gets back.

  2. I <3 Walking Dead. Just watched the last season on Netflix!

    I love that orange dress. I don't own ANY orange... but that's because I have more of an orange tone to my skin so I avoid it.

  3. I havent seen Masters of Sex but I can't think of that chick as anyone but her character in Mean Girls!

  4. I would hate it if it was "wear orange day." I look awful in orange. It's a good thing I am in charge of spirit days...

  5. I love all things orange!!!!

    OH my gosh.. that puppies ears flapping up :) The cutest!!!

  6. I love orange.

    I watched the first two Masters of Sex, I'll keep with it.

  7. I'm so happy I'm finally caught up on TWD...and about to be behind again since we don't have cable and there's nowhere online to watch it for free. Sigh. Story of my life.

    I do not miss Shane. Having an entire season (almost) without him was, in a word, glorious. And next season without Andrea is going to be equally as glorious.

  8. My family has walking dead watch parties so I watch but I can't hold a convo about it as I don't watch it that close. But they are all ready for it :)

  9. Yay for making a new friend! I would love to go to a pumpkin patch.

  10. I've told you before that I love that dress, and I have to tell you again! I really like the way you wore it here, too! :) I don't own much orange. I have a couple of orange t-shirts because my college colors were orange & maroon. And one is a Reese's tee. :-p

    I'm glad our school colors are black and white.

    So excited for the swap! I'm so bad, though, I still haven't shopped. But I know exactly what I'm going to send. :)

  11. your dog is SO adorable! these pictures are so cute! and i love that dress!
