Five Things on a Friday

Happy Friday! This week was just an “off week” for us.  When we don’t have school one day and testing on another I just feel like the week becomes a jumbled mess. I guess I should get used to it since there are hardly any 5 day school weeks from now until Christmas Break. (9 weeks if you are counting. Yikes!)

1. This big guy turns 5 on Sunday. I just can’t even fathom that he is days away from being five. Every fall I think about that crisp, rainy fall day we brought him home and how much our lives have changed for the better since then.


2. We are taking family pictures tomorrow with our steady photographer, Heidi Peters. Here’s a sneak peak of what we are wearing. The temperature is making it more complicated than it need to be but oh well.

3. I just finished Elements of Style by Erin Gates and really can’t say enough about the book. It was so easy to read and gave me some confidence. Do yourself a favor and grab it to read. Decorating seems less scary all of a sudden.

4. I read “Me Before You” by JoJo Moyes this summer and sobbed through most of it. Have you heard about the girl in Oregon? I just can’t stop thinking about it and her choice to die instead of suffering and I’m anxious to see what happens on November 1st.

5. My high school football team is 6-1 going in tonight’s game and there is this buzz at school where there is zero school spirit and excitement school wide about sports.  Maybe it’s because it’s expected and happens with frequency but the idea of fall football playoffs make me giddy.   Maybe it’s my small town roots and #fridaynightlights love but I’m ready.

Have a great weekend folks! I’m ready for it.
