{five} on Friday

Happy Friday!  It's been a pretty good week for us, but Fridays are always nice.  And I enjoy sharing and visiting the Five on Friday link-up at the good life blog.

California has been calling to me this week. I opened up our local paper one morning and the headline was...drum roll, please.....

I was so excited.  I love their fresh pizza dough and their frozen meals. So convenient for busy days when I don't have too much time to devote to cooking.  Flatten the dough, throw some cheese on it, put it in the oven and viola! Dinner. The closest one to us right now is in Ft. Worth and trekking down there for pizza dough defeats the convenience factor.

I saw this little mini pack at Ulta and I had to have it.  The colors are so pretty and perfect for fall.  And the little bottles are super cute. My favorite is the First Date at the Golden Gate, but I like all of the colors I got really.
I painted my toenails and when Mark saw, he wanted his painted as well. So now we have matching painted toenails. When Michael saw, he said to me, "Mom, you've got to stop painting his toes.  He's going to become a tom girl!" HAHA!!

I started decorating for fall this week.  And this little guy helped me.  He inspected everything I took out, touched it, and said, "ohhhh...NIIIICE..." Then he took a little break from decorating to read the dictionary.

Michael is doing really well so far at the intermediate school.  The first week, he came home saying he hated school everyday-which is to be expected right after the long summer break.  Who really wants to go back to homework and sitting in a classroom all day after 3 months of playing with friends all day? This week, I have not heard him say it once. Here he is getting ready to walk over to the bus stop.

On Monday, I took Mark to Grapevine Mills to walk around just to get out of the house. Little did I know that I would fall in love with this scarf. Then I saw the price and fell deeper. Twelve dollars! In Kirkland of all places. My day was complete.

Our weekend will be full of soccer and baseball.  It will be great! And? It will only be in the lower 90s! It's starting to look a little like fall :-)

  1. A friend of mine really gets annoyed when people are excited about stores like Trader Joe's opening up in cities because she thinks they make the cities less unique. But I have a huge love affair with the store because they treat their employees so well and you can get a lot of specialty stuff on the cheap!
