The Adventure Starts Here: Five on Friday!

Five on Friday!

This week went by so fast!  Probably had something to do with it being only 3 days long for us.  Chris was off on Monday because of Memorial Day and he's taking today off so we can go to the beach.  In three days, we had school and swim and all of our normal chores and errands to run.  So while I'm always happy for the weekend to come, part of me wishes I had one extra day to get through my to do list.  But now it's time to have fun and relax... hope you have a wonderful weekend too!  Here's my weekly five...  


In case you missed them, here's what I shared on the blog this week!  


Here are some of my favorite posts from the week.  You can tell where my mind is... finishing school, summer, and crafts (as always!).

Veronika's Blushing - Fun 4th of July Snacks for Kids


I think I may be the LAST person to get hooked on Fixer Upper.  I've heard so many people/bloggers rave about the show and I don't know why I took so long to check it out.  I just recently got a "seasons pass" on my TiVo and have been watching an episode any time I have a chance.  And while I absolutely love the show, it reminds me a lot of the show Property Brothers, which was another favorite of mine.  


Noah got his hair cut this week.  I used to take him to one of those fun kid places, but now that he doesn't mind hair cuts and is able to sit still, I started to take him to my salon.  Noah has a few cowlicks and his hair just requires a little more care and more of a style for it to look good.  I love how serious he looks while getting it cut, and even after it was done he wouldn't smile for a photo.  Even so, he looks so cute and grown up!!!


We are off to spend the weekend with some great friends!  These are the kind of friends you wished lived closer since we all get along so well... the moms, dads, and the kids!  Too bad they moved away and now we only get to see them a few times a year!  That's why I'm so happy to be able to get together with them, and this time it's at the beach!  

^^^excited to see these two playing in the sand!

I'm linking up with The Farmer's Wife and September Farm for "Oh Hey Friday" and with A. Liz Adventures for "Five on Friday"!

    So cowlicks... My husband has one and it had been my dream to have a little boy with the same exact cowlick. I just think it is so precious. I'm not sure if Ben fits the cowlicks bill just yet though.
    Fixer Upper is definitely the best!! We love to watch it too! Love her style.

  5. Such a fun post. From Oh Hey Friday link up. Feel free to link up at Party at My Place at still going on. Some of your favorite bloggers are there. Have a great weekend.

  6. Yay for the beach! Have a great time.

  7. Yay for the beach! Loving the snaps so far. Fixer Upper is our favorite show to watch together. Chip and JoAnna are so dang cute! I so can relate to the cowlicks thing! Mason has the biggest cowlick right in the front. It has a mind of its own. Have the best time at the beach, friend!

  8. It took me a while to discover Fixer Upper too, but I'm hooked! I love love love them!!
