Five on Friday #3

The last week has completely flown by, and before I knew it, it was Friday again. Which means yet another roundup of things of read or lusted after online in the last seven days. My usual irregular posting will start up again sometime soon. Promises, promises.

I've been looking for a good pinafore for the colder months, and I finally think I've found The One from Mod Dolly. I love the muted colours of the tartan, and it's got pockets! What more do you need? I think I'll have to make a cheeky little purchase once my bills are paid!

This heart warming post from Becky Bedbug made me smile. It's lovely to see people proclaiming their love for their families, so reading this really made me smile. It makes me think about all those times I should tell those close to me how I feel. I tell my parents I love them, but not so much my brothers and grandparents. It really does give you something to think about.

This story of how someone's dad tried to print a YouTube video completely cracked me up. It reminds me of something my own dad would try to do. He's forever ringing me with questions about his laptop, like asking how many spaces he'd need to get to the next line when sending an email. Let's not talk about the time I texted my poor boyfriend asking him how to copy and paste something. I was having one of those days!

I've been spending quite a lot of time on Pinterest recently, trying to decide how to decorate the house for Christmas. The part of me that loves to do things the hard way has decided that lots of crochet is in order, including making at least twenty of these little pretties to make a garland. You can find the pattern on Ravelry here.

Since Halloween is just around the corner, I've been busy costume planning. Since Toy Story is still a big thing in this house, I've been looking at costumes along those lines. But boy, are they expensive! I'm thinking a DIY costume might be more up my alley... I'm actually a sucker for punishment, giving myself yet more DIY work! This one is pretty impressive, and there's no fiddly sewing involved. That's a win in my book!
