Friday 5: Celebrating Simplicity

5 simple happenings from the week worth celebrating.

Here's to no injuries on the 5th grade golfing field trip.
Since 5th grade is the senior year of elementary school, field trips focus on fun. The teachers put an educational spin to it, but we know what's really going on. The kids golfed, bowled, and hiked and had a great time. 

Here's to baby giraffes.
Justin has been in Disney World all week (for a work conference) and stayed at Animal Kingdom, where adorable animals casually saunter outside, in view from your balcony. Every time he sent me a picture of something magical, I may or may not have sent him back a colorful gesture. 

Here's to Vaughn. Love her.
Although the thought of "wacking" her up sounds enticing, I knew what she meant. She loves to read, write, and make books, but she's not the best speller. I'm amazed she got doorbell right! Progress!

Here's to this stocking.
I had told myself I'd be done by today, but I didn't quite meet that deadline. I'm close though, so hopefully by the end of next week I'll have it completed.

Here's to our old couches. 
They have seen a lot of life in the past 14 years that we've had them and are still in relatively good shape. I'm hoping for a Toy Story type of ending for them, where they go to a good home and are appreciated for their comfiness. They're getting picked up by Salvation Army today, in order to make room for the new ones. We're still waiting on the love seat to be delivered, so our family room just got a bit bigger. Cartwheels, anyone? 

What will you be celebrating this weekend? Whatever it may be, cheers!

  1. The stocking is gorgeous!! I've been following your posts on it with admiration. I'm also thrilled for you the couches have finally(!!!) arrived. The kids legs on first-arrived-couch picture you posted showed a beautiful couch (and two healthy, growing kids). Happy Friday!

    1. Thank you! The stocking is definitely a labor of love. I wish I would have clocked all the hours that I've worked on it! It's nice knowing that come Christmastime, both kids will have handmade stockings. Goodbye mommy-guilt of making one for Vance and not one for Vaughn! :)

      We're still waiting on the love seat to be delivered, but 1 out of 2 is good! I figured we could live for a couple of weeks with only one couch. Have a great weekend!
