five on friday

 {1} This is the first month pretty much ever that we actually stuck to our $500 grocery budget. I can't even explain to you how excited I am about it. I'm going to write up a post about how we managed this month with just a little bit of discipline. 

{2} Since we are working on modernizing and beautifying the foyer of the house I have been daydreaming of also redoing the stair railings. I like this one but I'm not sure if it is too trendy and will feel dated in 5-10 years.

{3} Our town's homecoming parade is always amazing. The candy is insane (both the quality and the quantity) and the kids have a blast watching it (it lasts 45-60 minutes). This year the girls were most excited about the bags of chips they were handed. They immediately abandoned their candy bags and retreated to enjoy their salty snacks. They crack me up.

{4} We've had a lot of scattered storms this week. Last night was no exception and Elden quickly called me into his room because he was scared (Edith was in there too but she slept through it). Can't say I hated the extra cuddles I got!

{5} We continue to progress on the 'formal' living room! We moved our favorite Luke Stretar painting from the family room and we love it here!

Linking up with KatieAprilAndreaNarci and Erika!
