Five on FRIDAY

I can’t believe this is our last weekend in October. Time is like on super sonic speed right now.  We are heading out camping this weekend with two of our favorite camping family friends and Andrew’s family.  I am so excited to get out and away for a bit with these kiddos!


This is Us.  Totally and completely in love with this show!  It is so good and just gives me all the feelings EVERYtime.  We recently became cord cutters and ditched our cable (gasp) but honestly it has been the best thing we have ever done and we are loving it.  We have an apple TV (one time purchase $99) and sling TV ($20/month).  I’ve downloaded the apps for our favorite TV stations onto the apple TV and we honestly haven’t missed a beat ( we did not watch that much TV to begin with) but every show we watch is available for free the next day on the app and as far as kids shows go it’s basically on demand for PBS and Disney jr.  It’s good stuff friends – consider it!  Ditch the cable bill and start saving today!


We are in vacation planning mode and this makes me SO happy.  First up Branson and Nashville in December.  I cannot wait.  I am just so excited to visit some new places and make these memories with my family.



I think I’ve mentioned before that Natalie Grant is one of my favorite Christian artists to listen to.  She has a song called King of the World and I have been hearing it so much lately and it just has been resonating at home with me.  We have this disaster of an election around the corner – GO VOTE FRIENDS – and as much as I can get myself worked up thinking about the “what ifs” of the world I am trying to raise two Godly and kind sons in; it all come back full circle in this song.  At the end of the day left or right, red or blue, donkey or elephant – that doesn’t matter.  We are serving a King, our whole purpose on this Earth is to serve Him, to love Him, to praise Him.  The King of the world is our forever constant, our comfort, our savior.  So, at the end of the day I will raise up my thoughts and concerns and pray to our King that He will continue to guide the world we live in, the world He created.  Take a minute and listen.  Maybe we should all make this our theme song for life.


I am SO excited Halloween is right around the corner.  Corbin had his costume parade at school today and it was probably the sweetest thing ever.  I can’t wait to see all my friends kids dressed up and having fun.


I am still on a total high from my sister’s wedding.  I just had the best time with my family and visiting with family members I have not seen in years (and them meeting my kids for the first time!).  We are given one family during our precious time on this earth and I just want to soak up as much of that time as possible.


Have a great weekend and a SAFE and Happy Halloween friends!
