Friday Five

Happy Friday y'all! I'm gonna keep this week's Friday post sweet and simple because I am driving 10 hours home this weekend for a family wedding and I still need to pack...and do laundry so I actually have something to pack. Does anyone else wait till the last minute to get ready for a trip or is that just me? Anyways here are 5 things that I have been loving this past few weeks (I apologize in advance because two are sports related).

The Country Bib Necklace from BaubleBar is my new bae. I am so insanely in love with this thing it isn't even funny. Is it legal to marry a necklace (As a law student I know the answer is "no" but my heart says "yes"). I tend to wear a lot of solid colored clothing (aka black) and this necklace just looks so good paired with a black sweater, red lips, and a messy ponytail. This necklace will be getting a lot of love this Fall and Winter.

WHO'S GONNA WIN TODAY! THE CUBS! For those not from the Chicago area or even remotely interested in baseball the Cubs beat the Pirates 4-0 in the Wildcard game on Wednesday and all of Chicago is freaking out...literally! Wrigleyville was basically over taken by drunk Cubs fans after Wednesday night's win.  Everyone is hoping that this will be the year that Cubs win the World Series, something that has not been done by the Cubs since 1908! I watched the game from a bar in my neighborhood and from home and it was a great game to watch! I also went to a makeup game about a week ago and let me tell you, if you ever come to Chicago during baseball season you need to check out a Cubs game! The fans are great, the food is great, and the atmosphere of Wrigley Field is one of a kind! Next up the Cubs take on the Cardinals and I will be rooting for the Cubbies all the way!

Hockey season has started again and I once again feel complete! I am a HUGE fan of the Chicago Blackhawks! Fun fact, for our first Valentine's Day together Nick bought me tickets to a Blackhawks game during the 2012-2013 season when they won the Stanley Cup! It was my first professional sporting game and I have been in love ever since, with both Nick and the Blackhawks. Last night the Blackhawks raised another Stanley Cup banner. Even though they ultimately lost to the Rangers I am excited for hockey season and will be watching the Blackhawks religiously! BRING BACK THE CUP!

I had Pinkberry for dinner one night and now I am craving frozen yogurt all the time! I enjoy Original froyo with strawberries and Captain Crunch! Who else loves froyo for dinner?

It's finally starting to feel like Fall here in Chicago and I am loving every second of it (disclaimer this photo is from last Fall). I have been able to wear my collection of scarves, sweaters, and boots the last few days and I am so happy! I have also consumed an unhealthy amount of PSLs recently. I can't wait to hit up the apple orchards in the next couple of weeks and plan my Halloween costume! What is your favorite thing about Fall?

I hope y'all had a great week and that you have an even better weekend!
