Five on Friday

This week has pretty much taken it out of me, so I couldn't be happier to see the weekend upon us! I have a random collection of thoughts this week, as I link up with Darci {and friends} and Lauren Elizabeth.

{one} I've decided to have one decorating project a month. We've lived in our new home for almost a year now, but there are still places and walls needing decorated. So, I thought one project a month would be doable and not too overwhelming. I have some ideas floating around in my head for a wall for Collin and Emma. It will include something like this for both of them.
{two} If you follow me on Instagram, you know yesterday was Collin's first day of swim classes. He is a solid swimmer for such a young guy. My parent's have a wonderful pool that we practically live in each summer, so I kid you not that Collin is like a fish! And now we have a pool, too, so I know he's going to be in the water even more. And because of his passion, really, for swimming, we thought we'd put him in some classes that ultimately lead to a junior swim team. To say the least, he's pumped and we're so excited watching him be so passionate about something!
{three} Also at swim classes yesterday, I met a mommy friend! I love when that happens, especially when you discover you have so much in common...just within a short 30 minutes. I'm looking forward to chatting with her more each week at swim classes.
{four} This week has been full of surprises from unexpected (expensive) home repairs, to a health scare with my mom. Yet, despite these things, I have felt the peace of the Lord like never before. Sure, I've freaked out a bit about what's going on, but when I calm myself down and really sit quiet, I'm overwhelmed with the peace that He's with me, none of this takes Him by surprise and if I just focus on Him, everything will fall into place. Praise the Lord!

{five} In honor of Mia's brother, Christian, I am participating in my first 5k. It's the Color Run, so it'll no doubt be fun! But for this girl who isn't a runner, I'm determined to give it my best running shot.
I hope you have a good weekend! Do you have any exciting plans? Nothing too exciting happening for us this weekend, which is ok with me. :)


  1. Yay for the weekend! Hope everything is okay with your mom and the mold.. yikes. Good luck with the 5k!!

  2. Good luck with the run! Hope your weekend brings relaxation!

    1. Thank you, I'll need some luck to finish it running :) happy weekend to you!

  3. So happy you're doing the 5k too! And I can't wait for Collin to show me his swimming skills this summer!

  4. A new goal for both of us this year, we CAN run our first 5k!

  5. The art is cute! Ryan and I were chatting the other day about how we plan to have our kiddos in swim lessons at a very young age just for safety if nothing else!

  6. LOVE your heart and yall's friendship....YAY for the color run, for mia's brother, and for y'all!!! CHEERS to that! :) xx
