As my first Five on Friday post in a long while, this one's a bit random and scattered...but then again, so am I these days. Surely falling into a more regular back-to-school routine will help with my ability to multi-task and still maintain some semblance of sanity, right? And if not, well that's why there's beer on this list!
01// Chillin' Haute Scarf ($24.99) I literally lived in my blanket scarves last winter and discovered they are perfect for wrapping up anything that gets chilly in cooler weather. And yes, that includes an ice cold beer. I don't have a red-based scarf, and I love this for pairing with denim (and doubling as a koozie, natch!)
02// Epson Artisan 1430 Wide Format Printer ($298.00) My HP PhotoSmart has been dying a slow death the past few months and I need to face the fact that it's likely going to the big warehouse in the sky very soon. (sob!) I've tried to find a suitable HP replacement, but they don't seem to be making large format printers at reasonable prices anymore. So topping my list as a possible option is this Epson, which will print up to 13 x19 and is available at a decent price. I still need to do some more research, but I'll keep you posted on what I decide to buy (and please chime in with any recommendations!)
03// Peekaboo Chic Lace Boot Socks ($21.95) It's almost boot season - holla! I adore the little touch of feminine lace peeking out from chunky leather boots. And if I was really motivated, I'd pull out the sewing machine and make some myself (how easy would that be?!) But then my family might discover that I actually do know how to hem, patch and repair clothing and that's one gig this mama doesn't want!
04// Abita Pecan Harvest Ale I'm usually all about the pumpkin beer frenzy, but this autumn brew intrigues me. It's made with real Louisiana pecans along with Munich, biscuit, and caramel malts and Willamette hops. And cozied up in a blanket scarf, I imagine it would make the perfect beverage to sip with a big ol' slice of pecan pie. Because doesn't everyone drink beer with pie??
05// Peyton Manning Tee ($32.95) Seeing as it may be Peyton's last season, I figured I should grab some apparel suitable for watching the games this fall. And while I'm not a huge fan of the orange and blue Broncos palette (someone in their graphics department needs a lesson in complementary colors!) this heather gray is right up my alley. Add a plaid scarf and a cold brew, and I'm ready for some football, y'all!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
