Five Loves on Friday

Happy Friday, friends!  I can hardly believe it's officially less than a week until Thanksgiving! I must be in training for the feasting to come because over half my "loves" involve foodie goodness this week. {ha!} Enough with the small talk, let's get to the good stuff ....

1.  Girls night with Princess!
Little One had a leadership workshop at her taekwondo school.  Princess and I filled the time with chinese yumminess and shopping at her favorite store, which always involves trying on every cute item in sight!

Her smile makes my heart happy. Can't believe she'll turn 12 a week from today! Where does the time go?!

2.  Holiday Crafting!

Click the link below the image for more on the craft we enjoyed making this week. It just might become your next fun family tradition, too!

3.  Smoothies start my day with a smile. :)

Love my Ninja!

4.  My Personal Mr. Fix-It 
This week Jason installed a new vent in our basement, fixed our toilet, and changed our car's brake pads.  ...No "honey-do" list involved!  I'm so thankful for him, and appreciate all he does to care for our family in so many ways!

5.  Date night with my Lovey!
My parents kept our girls overnight giving Jason and I a "just the two of us" evening to celebrate our 15th Wedding Anniversary.  They also generously gifted us money to treat us to dinner! 
Thanks again, Mom & Dad! :)

We considered a nice romantic dinner at a steakhouse, but ended up thinking that a yummy takeout dinner of pizza, pasta, and breadsticks would really hit the spot! To some this may not sound all that exciting, but a cozy night in together, laughing and enjoying each others' company was just what we needed.




... because after 15 years of marriage I like movies like "Thor",  and actually choose television shows that are about riding motorcycles through Africa.  True story.

I know, crazy, right?!  ;)

Have a fabulous weekend, lovelies!
