Five on Friday | A Wonderful Week


I am taking a break from reading the Bible in a year, and studying Galatians inductively. So far, week one has been great, I cannot wait to dig even deeper in the coming weeks. If you want to join in, you can start anytime with Nicole’s plan!

I may have a green thumb after all! My first garden did not prove to be too successful as I had many fails. My two zucchini plants gave me exactly six vegetables, my butter lettuce was a bust, I picked maybe twenty sugar snap peas before they all died, and I got a whopping zero squash. But, my tomatoes are doing amazing, and my zinnias are gorgeous! It is so fun to be able to go an pick a tomato from the back yard, and whip up a BLT!

Nora and I had a little spontaneous date the other day, and it was so much fun! We didn’t plan on it, but I felt like getting out of the house! It was 75 degrees so we headed for the park, but we hit up Chick-Fil-A first! I am a Chicken Mini fan through and through, but it was free Chicken Biscuit day so we simply got both! Then to the park for about an hour. There was hardly anyone there which is always the best. It’s a great park, but it has very little shade. So at ten we headed to the library to play inside for a while. Out library has a great children’s area! Then, we went to Target to get some goodies for our vacation! It was a great day, capped off by Nora taking a three hour nap!



Mornings here in Missouri have been in the mid-seventies this week, and it’s only been getting up to the mid-eighties! So we have been spending most of our days outside! That means sun-kissed skin, and baths every night! I hope this stays!



No picture for this one, but last night I paid off my student loans! That means this family no longer makes payments to the Department of Education… until our kids got to college.


Happy Friday everyone! I will be taking a break next week as we will be at the beach! Check back Monday for a small post reminder and update!
