Five Things Friday [#3]

I'm back today with another installment of Five Things Friday, a link up with Erika from Rouge and Whimsy.  In case you haven't seen a Five Things Friday post, it's where you list five good things about your week.  Reminding yourself of things you are thankful for does wonders in helping to maintain a positive attitude and not dwell on the negative.

I know I was MIA yesterday, but forgive me because I have very good reason... I was running around stocking my fridge and pantry before a crazy cleaning spree. ;)

1.  I had a grand time learning some new crochet stitches this week, and I've put them to use working on a big project.  I'll be sure to share it when I finish! :)

2.  Thanks to my cleaning spree today, my house is super duper spic-and-span.  I'm talking baseboards cleaned, fridge cleaned out, and underneath-the-sofa-cushions cleaned kinda clean.  It feels great!

3.  I got a new hair cut, color, and some new feathers.  Nothing crazy different or funky, but it sure makes me feel pretty. :)

4.  Earlier this week I got my first e-mail  from the husband in a month and a half, which was soon followed by the first phone call in the same amount of time.  It's SOOOO wonderful hearing a loved one's voice when you haven't heard it in a while!  (Thinking about how that month and a half felt like such a long time makes me super thankful to live in the day and age that I do.  I can't even fathom getting only letters.... every once in a while... if possible... for years...  We are some blessed people today!)

5.  Last but not least, I will be laying eyes on my husband in a matter of hours instead of days!  I can't wait to see him and have him home for a little while!  It will be so nice to have someone around to talk to, enjoy a meal with, go on a date with, and share some household responsibilities with. :)  (If I'm MIA again for a few days, I'm sure you'll understand...)

 That pretty much sums up why I had a fantastic week.  I hope everyone else had one just as wonderful, and I hope that everyone has a super fabulous weekend ahead!


  1. Yay for Kent coming home. I know how much you've missed him and I'm sure he feels the same way! But I guess now you don't need that roommate :)

  2. Yay for having him home! :) And for new hair. Fun stuff!


I love getting your comments! Put a smile on my face and show me some love. :-)
