High Five for Friday #200 | Taking a Little Break

Welcome to High Five for Friday – hosted by me, BeckyTif, and Della! Come, read up on what we’ve been up to this week and get to know some amazing bloggers.

Remember, you can link up any 3 posts you want – regardless of content! Link up your favorite posts from the week that you want more people to read. Share away! And, of course, if you have a weekly recap post, link that up too! But we want to give you a chance to share your other content from the week.

Happy Friday, friends! Hope you’ve had a great week.

So, #200 for High Five for Friday post-hosting around here! Hard to believe we’ve whipped through 200 here already! What a hoot!

But, as the blog post title suggests, I’m going to be stepping back and taking a break from hosting for a while. I love popping on to the blog once a week to catch up with you all and see who’s linked up, but I feel like I’m not doing this whole blogging thing well right now…. so my other three co-hosts will be carrying on and I’ll pop back for hosting at some point.

That doesn’t mean I’ll stop blogging 100%. I may do an occasional post… or even an occasional High Five for Friday! But if you come to the Cup of Tea blog to post your own H54F post, then be sure to swing over to one of the other ladies for the link up!

Ok, that’s out of the way… let’s recap this week.

Friends, we are STILL sick!!!!!!!!!!! This has been the LONGEST cold ever. Elizabeth is 100% better and has been for at least a week, but William, hubby and I are all still sniffly and coughing like crazy. Will it ever end? I’m on week 3 of not being at the gym… obnoxious!

Now that the weather is a little cooler, we can start back up our favorite tradition of a Sabbath hike after church on Saturday. We went to the woods right by our house and walked and explored and picked up leaves and through rocks and shook trees. Delightful time!!

On Sunday we walked the 2.5 mile Triangle Kidney Walk with the National Kidney Foundation. My husband is a nephrologist (kidney doc!) so naturally, we were there with quite a few co-workers. We were also walking with some church friends, celebrating a friend’s 1 year anniversary with a new kidney! Amazing! We were smart to bring the stroller. Both kids rode for most of the walk. And then they wanted to pop out right towards the end! Win! We were also “Official Stuff Carrier” for our buds. HA!

I asked this on my FB and IG pages, but what would you do???? Since I only have 30 minutes, I’d head straight to a furniture store to buy Master Bedroom furniture. Our bedroom still looks like a dorm room – always the last room to be decorated, right? What would you do?

Alright friends!!! Keep on linking up, and I’ll hope to catch up with you all again sooner rather than later 🙂

High Five for Friday #199 | Trick or Treat Fun!

Welcome to High Five for Friday – hosted by me, BeckyTif, and Della! Come, read up on what we’ve been up to this week and get to know some amazing bloggers.

Remember, you can link up any 3 posts you want – regardless of content! Link up your favorite posts from the week that you want more people to read. Share away! And, of course, if you have a weekly recap post, link that up too! But we want to give you a chance to share your other content from the week.

Happy Friday, friends! Hope you’ve had a great week.

This week we all were still battling our colds. Last week, Elizabeth was the lone soldier, so sick. This week, we all joined in on the fun! As of today, we’ve still all got stuffy noses and coughs… but at least our energy is back.

But despite the colds, we had fun!

One of the biggest things this week was that Elizabeth and I read and finished The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe! I’m not sure what possessed me to pick up my copy and start reading it to her, but she loved it. It took us 4 days to finish it. She even paid attention and caught most of the detail. I’m so proud of her! As a treat, we’re going to watch the animated version from the 70s this afternoon. Anybody else watch that version??

On Tuesday, Elizabeth and I headed out to pick up a few extra pumpkins for decoration. Thankfully our local nursery around the corner had some GREAT ornamental ones for good prices. We also picked up a pumpkin for carving!

She gave the whole scooping thing a try for about 1 minute, and then I got the task of scooping and scraping the insides. To be honest, it’s my favorite! So I was happy to do it!

She also drew her own face with a marker, and then I cut it out. She gave her pumpkin a little hair bow on the side! HA!

So fun! Memories – check!

On Wednesday, the kids’ preschool had a little fall festival with some games. I cheerfully manned a post, with a box of tissues hiding with me.

On Wednesday evening we had a ton of fun! We had friends over for dinner, and then we all headed out to trick or treat in our neighborhood. It’s so fun watching how the kids change and grow each year. Last year we took out a wagon with us for William and his little buddy to ride in since they were a bit too small to do all that walking.

Ah…. costume pictures. I struggle to get good pictures of both kids. One is always cheesy, the other is looking away.

When we went out to take pictures, our neighbor’s grandkids showed up right at that time, so William for most of the pictures was FAR MORE interested in what they were up to! HA! So hard!!

Candy sorting… is there anything more kid-like?? Such memories of my sister and I sorting and swapping our candy the next day.

  And now, it’s time to link up your posts! Can’t wait to cruise around and see what you all have been blogging about!
