Tag Archives: Five on Friday

This week I am linking up with Darci and her Five on Friday linkup.

THE GOOD LIFE BLOG

01.  We have really enjoyed getting together with neighbors this week.  Sunday evening we got together for an impromptu barbecue complete with some water fun.

02.  I am loving these J Crew knock-offs from Target.  Wear them nearly every day.

03.  I’ve seen advertisements for abcmouse.com on the Disney channel and thought I’d check it out.  Have been shocked at how much my kids are loving it.  Ella went from not knowing how to work a computer mouse to playing educational games for an hour.

04.  Nightswimming.  Our neighborhood pool is open until 10pm.  While, we haven’t gone that late we have enjoyed going for a swim after dinner this week.

05.  So excited to celebrate the 4th of July this year.  Our neighborhood does a bike parade for the kids which will be fun to participate in.  And hopefully we’ll get in some swimming and a BBQ with friends.  I think these mason jar shortcakes are right up my alley.


Linking up with Darci of The Good Life blog again this week for her Five on Friday post.

01.  It has really started to heat up in Oklahoma.  We have spent every day over the last week in water – whether it be the splash pad, pool, sprinkler in our own backyard, or setting up the water table.

02.  Excited to celebrate my husband this weekend.  We are dreaming of a day spent at the pool and then cooking out ribs and grilled corn on the cob.  Am thinking this cucumber and tomato salad sounds delicious:

03.  I bought my ticket for the Making Things Happen Conference this week.  I came to my husband with a whole speech prepared and within a couple of words he said “Go for it”.  Done and done.

Some fun Oklahoma girls are also attending – Rekindled Rentals, Katie O’Keefe, and Christina Leigh Events.  Can’t wait to see what this experience has in store for me.

04.  We have gotten some things done around the house.  My husband hung the pin board and swing-arm sconces in the office:

We have been waiting for a month for the concrete company to come out to pour some additional patio space for us.  But, due to rain their schedules were delayed.  They came out this week to get started.  Praying that the rain stays away so that they can finish quickly.  We have big plans for this patio…in the future.

Also, we had our fireplace surround tiled.  Currently…it’s waiting to be grouted.  Will share soon!

05.  Have treated the kids to Sno Cones three times this week.  Mom has caved too.  This can’t be a good habit to start.  Had to share this picture of my littles.  Ella is obsessed with wearing this black mitten.  All I can think of is Michael Jackson while she is wearing it.
