High Five For Friday!

(And yes, it's already Saturday, but the kids had no school yesterday so Jimmy worked on his usual day off so we could enjoy a family day yesterday...we were out from early morning to late night having a ball!  Thankful for days like those!)

1) Treated myself to new pens. When my husband came home from work and saw the huge pack he teasingly made the comment that if anyone needed some Paper Mates, we had some.  To which I surprised myself by responding immediately (and a little defensively), "Those are mine." But I mean, really, you don't mess with a girl's
colored pens!  :)

2) Speaking of my husband, he is incredibly creative and resourceful and has been sprucing up the building where our youth group meets.  He imitated an idea he saw online for these awesome panels and they look amazing.  Even more amazing is that they are simply hand built, hand painted frames strung with yarn then illuminated!  He makes me proud.

3) Baked a cake for my grandma for her 87th birthday.  She has been in and out of the hospital these days and not doing so well.  But she requested chocolate cake with white frosting and she used to make the same for me when I was younger, so I'm glad I was able to do this small thing for her.  (And I have to say, it was delicious!)

4) Some days call for a big ol' pair of earrings.

5) And others (like this breezy one spent outside) call for hats and little boots.

Enjoy your weekend, everybody!

Linking up with Lauren at High Five For Friday


  1. What great things! The panels your hubby made look fantastic!! I'm really impressed, and I'm sure you're very proud. :) Your cake looks creamy and delicious! I would love a slice right now. That's sweet of you to make it for her birthday! I'm so glad you had a great day yesterday with your family. My poor hubs has been so busy, I rarely see him. :-/ Oh, well....and this too shall pass, right?

  2. Those panels that Jimmy made are so cool! Amazing! And you are just plain cute :).. love your hat in that pic. Btw..I totally get your "don't touch my pens" mentality. I try to get a new set when the back to school supplies are out, and they always seem to disappear by the next year.. all except the pink one.. none of my boys ever want the pink..

  3. Those panels are AWESOME! Way to go, Jimmy!
