Five on Friday

I am super excited to be doing Five on Friday this week.  I see lots of blogs I read linking up week after week.  Unfortunately, I just can't get it together enough to do it as often as I would like.


I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week!!! Where has November gone?  I'm trying not to freak out about the number of days until Christmas given that I have only bought one Christmas gift.

I got this in the mail today.  It's a prayer chalkboard.  Aaron mentioned he would like for us to have a place we can right down things we want to pray about as a family.  I found this on Etsy, and thought it would be perfect to hang on our fridge.
I found this as I was putting groceries away earlier this week.  You can't tell I have a toddler in the house!!! Just one of the many things that make me smile throughout the day.  My how things have changed since Jackson entered our world!!!
Today was a much needed day in our world.  I had today off after working two days in a row.  It also happened to be a day we didn't have an appointment for J.  Those days are few and far between now.  So today we didn't have any place to be, and it was so nice!!!  I love days where it's just me and my boy with no plan.  We just hang out, do a few things around the house, run an errand or two, and play.  Just another reason I am thankful to only work part-time.  Laid-back days are priceless!!!
I ordered my Christmas cards last week.  LAST WEEK!!! That is unheard of!!!  Well, they arrived on my front step this morning.  I am so excited because they turned out great.  Now, I just need to print off address labels and buy stamps.  I will be posting pics later on once I have mailed them and everyone has received their card.
That's all I've got for now!!!  I work a half day tomorrow and then am off for a full week.  I am so excited to spend time next week with my boy and my mom.  One of my favorite things is spending the Wednesday before Thanksgiving cooking with my mom.  I have such great memories of this, and I love that it has become a tradition!!!
Have a great weekend!!! 


  1. I love the prayer chalkboard! What a great idea! Also the truck in the fridge....totally get this. I had a car next to my bathroom sink yesterday morning as I put on my makeup. I love having a boy!

  2. I love reading 5 on Fridays! Way to be on top of things with the Christmas cards! We have not even got our pictures taken yet to put on the Christmas cards! Yikes! ;)

  3. You have just reminded that I need to get on the ball with ordering Christmas cards!!

    Love the chalkboard.

  4. I've had a hard time getting myself together for a five on Friday too! That's awesome that you have your Christmas cards ordered already. For once, we actually had our pictures made before Thanksgiving, and now I need to get moving on picking out a card! Have a wonderful holiday!
