Friday Five and a Freebie

We haven't done a Friday five in ages, so I thought we should bring it back.

Here's our five: (a collaboration of this week and last- since someone forgot to set the auto-post){my bad}

1. It finally looks like fall. *sigh* I heart fall. Sweaters and boots (who doesn't love boots) and scarves. and crinkly leaves. oh and hot cocoa. I swear I don't have a stash of my homemade cocoa at home and at school :)

2. I (Shannon) spent a day shopping with sister (Niki) and the kids, and scored awesome fleece coats for the kids on the $15 Old Navy one day special! Woot! The baby will be so cute in red plaid!

3. Niki got her first post chemo hair cut!! Hooray! And Faith, her daughter, my niece, donated ANOTHER pony tail to Locks of Love!

4. We are making progress on getting my (Shannon's) apartment to look more like a "home"- if you know what I mean. Like we actually "live" there.

5. We celebrated the birthdays of all THREE of Niki's kids! Yep, all October babies! It was a great day with food, family and fun!

And here is the freebie. I have been trying to get my life back under control since the move and recent acquisition of another job. (yep, we're at 4 for those of us keeping track) (it was at 5, for a few weeks- so its really not as bad as it could be) I need to get a system and get reorganized to get myself back on track. I had made a cleaning checklist back when I made my home management binder documents. But it just wasn't doing it for me….not surprising since I had never actually used it before. So I readjusted and added the regularly scheduled items to the list and printed it out and added it to my binder. So I thought maybe some of you could use this to get yourselves on track too, whether you just moved or not.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Hi, love your site. This cleaning checklist is exactly what I've been looking for but haven't been able to find; something for the family and an individual checklist of each day to keep track of who has been slacking :). But I can't download it anymore. Is there anyway it is available for download?

  2. Hi Paris,
    If you send an email to I can most definitely send you a pdf. I'm glad you think you can use it! I look forward to hearing from you.
