High 5... for 9 days off!

It's the weekend, and come 4:30... I will be off for 9 days! So excited to be done with my Masters classes for two weeks, and enjoy the holidays and decorating for Christmas. Next week I have plans to do some Christmas shopping, catch up on some sleep and organize some neglected rooms in the house. Hooray for time off.

Here are my 5 favorite things that happened this week, linking up with FMGD:

1. My sister and best friend from college came to visit this past weekend. I love visitors, girl time and shopping! We ate dinner at Montgomery Inn and of course stopped by the Hofbrauhaus. Visitors are always welcome (hint, hint)

2. Murphy turned 5! We spoiled him all day with extra treats and cuddles and he got a new tug toy. Greg and him did a little too much tugging and one side is already ripped, whoops! Murphy still loves it though

3. My hair was super overdue for fresh highlights and a trim. Love my new caramel highlights, perfect for Fall

4. Had time for baking this week, Andes Mint Cookies { recipe }

5. My November Birchbox arrived! Love getting packages and fun surprises in the mail :) You can see my goodies here

Does anyone else have big plans for their time off or the Thanksgiving holiday?
