Five on Friday - Fall Puzzle, Halloween Lego Set, Halloween Koozies, and Metallic Rothy’s

We’ve had our eyes on Hurricane Ian all week, and I’m praying for everyone in its path.  For those of you who have asked, thankfully, we are not in the path this time.  Thanks to all of you for checking on us, though.

Today, as always, I’m sharing a few favorites from the week, and they are really good this week!

O N E – Fall Puzzle

We love doing puzzles in the fall and winter when we’re not able to get outside as much, so I’ve slowly been adding puzzles to our collection these last couple of years.  Last year, I bought a Christmas puzzle to add to our collection, and last week, I grabbed this fall puzzle to add to our collection.  We’ll be starting on it once we finish the Friends puzzle that we recently started working on again, and I’m ready for it and all of its fall goodness!  ;o)


T W O – Halloween Lego Set

Our kiddos are Lego fanatics, and they love to collect all of the Lego Brickheadz holiday sets.  I typically give them a new Halloween set each year at our spooky dinner on Halloween night, and I can’t wait for them to see this year’s set – a spooky owl with a couple of pumpkins!  If you’re looking for something small to give to your kiddos besides candy (they will get plenty during trick-or-treating!), this makes a great, affordable gift!


T H R E E – Halloween Koozies

Now that I drink beer out of a can often (thanks to all of the bougie craft beers that only come in cans), I use koozies a LOT.  I collect koozies, and I have one for most occasions, but I realized a few weeks ago that I didn’t have any for Halloween.  I remedied that by purchasing this Hocus Pocus inspired koozie and two other cuties on Etsy a few weeks ago, and y’all, aren’t they so much fun?!  There are a few other options in the listings that I didn't buy, too.  They're all so cute, it was hard to narrow it down and not just buy them all!


F O U R – Rothy’s Metallics

I’ve raved about my Rothy’s here on the blog for years, and this year I am THE MOST excited to see that they finally come in metallic colors!  I have been crossing all of my fingers and toes for a pair of silver or gold Rothy’s forever, and I’m so glad to see that they’ve finally added BOTH to their product line!! 

As always, if you use my link, you get $20 off of your first pair!  Yes, they are pricey, but they are the absolute best flats I’ve ever put on my feet, and they last forever.  They’re so comfortable, they’re made from recycled water bottles so they’re sustainable, they’re durable, and the very best part – they’re 100% machine-washable so you can keep them looking brand new forever and ever.  I’ve had mine for three years now and they still look brand new despite the fact that I’ve worn them countless times.  Seriously the best!  You can see my full review here if you missed it!


F I V E – The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo Book Review

I finished The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo this month, and it was easily one of my favorite reads of 2022!  This was a heartbreaking tale about the complexities of love and life and everything in between.  I loved the glitz and the glamour of the behind-the-scenes peek at how contrived everything is in Hollywood.  And I’m still reeling from the twist at the end!!  This is one that I’ll be purchasing for my library to read again in the future.

Happy Friday, y’all!  Sending love to all of you who have been affected by Hurricane Ian.


  1. That puzzle is so cute, I really like that brand too!

  2. I just picked up 7 Husbands yesterday! I bought a fall puzzle at TJ Maxx the other week and I had so much fun putting it together that I just added a few more fall themed ones to my Amazon cart.

    1. I can't wait to hear how you like that book! I loved it so much! I can't wait to get started on our fall one... assuming we ever finish our Friends puzzle. That one is SO hard!

  3. The Lacy Cami under the hollister T-shirt, cracking me up! Great Friday post and have a great weekend!

  4. I've never tried Rothy's, they look so cute!

    1. They are absolutely my favorite flats of all time! They are pricey, but I have found them to be worth the money since they hold up so well and can be machine-washed!

    2. That’s awesome! I’ll have to check them out.

  5. So glad you are safe and out of the storm's path! That fall puzzle is gorgeous. Those colors make my heart happy! Those Rothys are so pretty! I've never owned a pair! Happy weekend!!
