Five on Friday!

Is it just me, or did this week seem a little long? I had a good week, so it's not like I was wanting it to come to an end. I don't know, I guess it was just really full and I'm excited for the long weekend. :) Anyway, here's this weeks Five on Friday...

{one} Last Friday we enjoyed a delicious homemade Mexican dinner with some sweet friends. It was great to catch up with them! They're expecting their first baby in November, which is so very exciting!! Then, on Tuesday, we enjoyed dinner with Mia and Dustin and guess with Mia and talked about....OUR TRIP TO CHICAGO!! Yup, after the boys trip to Alaska, we decided we needed a girls trip. Destination, Chicago! Let me know if you have any suggestions of things we must do/see while we're there in October.

{two} I made big progress on the school room! I finished painting the two main walls and purchased two fairly large white boards. Now we just need to hang the white boards, finishing painting the wall around them, set up the room and get started! Collin and I are so excited to start! On my to-do for this weekend/week is everything I already mentioned, plus getting all the curriculum ready to go. We haven't even started school yet and I'm learning things I would do differently. Ha! Hopefully next week, I can show you a finished room.
{three} Date night with my man! We've been more intentional about having "date nights" at home. The other night we enjoyed playing Dutch Blitz. It's fun because we get competitive with each other, trash talk, the whole nine yards. We played a lot of games and watched a lot of football together in our dating years, so we're getting back to the basics. Ha! We've decided to make Monday nights "date night in" at our house and watch football after the kiddos go to bed. May not sound too fun to most, but I just love football and I love my man, so it sounds like a perfect night to me! :)
{four} Nearly every morning the kids and I start our day with a walk. Often my mom joins us on the walk, but not always. Yesterday morning this was my view :)
I just LOVE them!! Sure, I play referee between them, but really they are the best of friends. They laugh so hard together and play together all day. Nothing beats siblings. :)
{five} I'm obsessed with Purex crystals, specifically the Fresh Spring Waters scent. I've tried lots of different laundry add ins, but this is the one I keep coming back to. It's amazing! You need to try it....then let me know what you think. :)

Well, there you have it. My weekly Five on Friday. I hope you have a good weekend planned...hopefully a long weekend with those you love! :)

Until next time,


  1. Sounds like a perfect week :) You got me hooked on the Purex Crystals too! I LOVE your Mon date night plan, you guys are adorable <3

    1. I'm glad you like them, too! I've tried different scents, but I think that's the best.

      And thank you!! :)


Thank you for leaving me a little note! I love hearing from you!!
