Five on Friday

It's time for another round of Five on Friday!

{one} This past weekend we decided to switch Emma over to a "big girl bed." Her crib converts into a full size headboard that we're going to use sooner than later, but the weather has turned cool enough overnight that I hated how she would always uncover herself. I worried that she was getting cold, so the solution...transition her to a "toddler bed" with real sheets. So far, so good. She has figured out now that she can get out of bed during nap time and play, so that's been interesting. I let her play for awhile the other day and found her like this when I checked on her. She wore herself out. :) Sweet girl!! Growing so fast!
{two} As I just mentioned, it's finally feeling like fall around here and I'm loving it! Actually, Saturday I just couldn't get warmed up, so we turned on the fire in the morning and I enjoyed some hot chocolate that afternoon. It was such a cozy day at home!

{three} I'm loving my "arm candy". Mia and I picked up some matching bracelets in Chicago, so every time I look down I'm reminded of our great trip. I love seeing my Pray for Mayberry bracelet, too. He is always close to my heart, but seeing the bracelet always reminds to me to lift up a prayer for him. And then, of course, being the Fossil junkie I am, I'm obsessed with my watch.

{four} Remember when I told you about Auntie Neighbor?! Well, she has done it again! She randomly sends my kids care packages, which they, of course, love. I love it, too, but not because she sends my kids gifts, but, rather, the reason behind sending those gifts. She loves them. She's awesome! I have the best friends and the way they love my kids blows me away! God has blessed me so!

{five} So, one of the biggest things I love about blogging is the community! And this weekly linkup has been such a great way to connect with other bloggers and I'm grateful for that! Through this linkup, last week I was able to get hooked up with a couple bloggers that I'm so very grateful to have connected with. You should totally check them out, too, if you haven't already...Elise @ cheers y'all and Slice of Life. And while you're at it, check out Cassie @ True Agape. She has a great blog all about marriage.

What's your top five for the week? Or do you have anything exciting planned for the weekend?
