The Adventure Starts Here: Five on Friday

Five on Friday


Chris' dad comes from a large family.  He is the oldest of 8 children, all of who live in New Jersey!  There are then 17 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.  Every year around Christmas, we all get together for the Flinn Cousins Party.  This year it was at Chris' parents' house, which is very convenient for us.  Only one cousin wasn't able to make it because of work... impressive if you ask me!

^^^ I think it's near impossible to get this many people to look at the camera at the same time!


My Simplified Planner came in the mail right before Christmas.  I'm so excited to get it messy and really start using it (as Emily suggests).


Chris got this jewelry stand for Christmas.  I immediately went through my jewelry and started organizing it. My necklaces and bracelets went on the stand, while my earrings and rings stay in the jewelry box.  I love having my necklaces out where I can see them... more of a chance that I will actually wear them!


Chris and I FINALLY saw the new Hunger Games movie!  We weren't able to go a few weeks ago because of snow, so we decided to go on New Year's Day for a morning showing.


It was Chris' birthday on Monday, and we spent the entire day doing things as a family... it was so much fun.  We went to dinner at Jose Tejas (Chris' choice) and we sang him happy birthday over a Carvel cake :)
