Five on Friday: My Heart Is So Happy

This Friday is such a good one.  It has been the best week, and the weather is going to be perfect this weekend!  What are y'all up?  Here's my week:

1 ||| Halloween - My favorite holiday!  I hosted a Halloween party for my girls at work, like I do every year (I even wore the same costume as two years ago - whoops! Sidenote: apparently kids don't read Waldo books anymore, about half of them had no idea who I was...disappointing.).  Then, for real Halloween, Mike and I hung out on our porch, played cribbage, listened to Halloween Pandora, and passed out candy.  Since we didn't dress up last year, we decided to give it a run this year and came up with the BEST last-minute costume.  Can anyone guess it?  Here's your clue.  Any questions?
2 ||| CUBS - Even people who live under rocks probably know about this by now: the Cubs WON THE WORLD SERIES.  It had been 108 years, and they did it in probably the best Game 7 of a World Series ever.  Of course, it was the most stressful Game 7 ever, and boy, did Cleveland hang in there.  As I've said before, I've been a Cubs fan my whole life.  Mike is one now, too, and we've totally rocked Cubs gear all the way in San Fran!  You know I'll be ordering some World Series Champions gear tonight!

3 ||| Influenster & VIB - It's been forever since I reviewed anything from Influenster, but I was pretty excited to receive the Real Techniques VoxBox with the "Your Picks" brush seta makeup sponge, and this setting brush.  While the sponge and setter have been around for a while, the brush set is pretty new.  It's a combination of all the favorite brushes voted on by fans.  As silly as it sounds, I love the weight of these brushes.  They are a little on the heavier side, and I feel like that really helps me control where my makeup is going.  While I have yet to try the setting brush (don't wear a lot of setting powder), I do like the sponge for both makeup blending and covering blemishes.  It's versatile and my makeup stays on evenly.  It'll be even more fun with some goodies from next weekend's VIB sale shopping (I have my eye on this and this).  I'll live vicariously through all the VIB Rouge members this weekend!
4 ||| Vote - THIS TUESDAY!  This election is so important, not just for the presidency but also those down ballot races for control of Congress.  I don't talk politics at all typically on this blog, but this election is different: progress is on the ballot.  You can find your polling place by clicking here.

5 ||| The Mac Off - My favorite event of the year is this weekend, and I am so excited to be partnering with them and to judge on the Critic's Choice panel.  This year, not only has it been expanded to two year, but they're even going to have a test kitchen - I cannot wait to sample the cheese and beer pairings!  You'll definitely find me snapchatting (megatronnn27) about this one all day tomorrow with their new snapchat filter!  If you're in the Charleston area, you should definitely add this to your weekend plans!  You can purchase tickets by clicking here.

Wait....the mac off??? Omg, that may be this preggo girl's dream!!! :) Enjoy that! And how do kids not know who Waldo is?? Sad!

Brianne said...

OMG! A mac off?? Sounds like my kind of place. In Texas we have early voting so I voted on Wednesday of this week. I'm ready for this election to be over.

Judging a bunch of mac & cheese sounds like the best way to spend a weekend!

Jen said...

I could not be more excited about the Cubs big win even as a Yankees fan - so exciting! And how sad that kids don't know who Waldo is! We actually picked up a few of the Waldo books for Serena and our nephew, and I'm super excited to introduce her when she's ready <3

Omg I want to be down there for some Mac and Cheese Right now!!!

Mattie @ Northwest Native said...

I guessed your costumes right!!! And they are GLORIOUS by the way hahaha. And I totally read, "Any questions?" in Tom's David Pumpkins voice which I LOVE.

I mailed in my ballot and I'm so anxious for Tuesday. Articles and such (and polls!) are making me super nervous for the results, but I'm in an invite-only FB group (that has grown to like 500K members or something crazy) of HRC supporters and it's basically the best thing ever because ALL the posts are positive and you get NO troll-y comments. So I'm just staying in that bubble until the election is over and hoping for the best.

That Mac off sounds so good! If I wasn't going out of town already this weekend, I would seriously be considering a drive down to Charleston for that! Hope you have a great weekend :)

Nicole said...

I like the way you do Halloween! I might have to incorporate some porch sitting and game playing next year! Have fun at the Mac cookout. I would so love that! Judging as well!

Nikki @ makeupHER said...

A Mac Off sounds super delicious!! Omg that skit had me in stitches, it was so funny...super creative for last minute girl! I love that you're a Cubs fan, I have my sister buying me a Cubs shirt from a local shop to make it more "authentic" lol! I'm not even sure what I want to get from the Sephora VIB sale, but I know I'll be spending some dough on stuff :)!
