Friday’s Fave Five #95

FFF tulips

I missed participating in this meme last week because I was on my way to Tennessee.  I missed it!  So, I’m back this week, sharing five things that I’m thankful for this past week ---

  1. Our trip to TN.  Ashley and I had opportunity to spend the weekend in TN, visiting with my boss and her family, and spending some time discussing some great new things for TOS.  We had lovely weather and great traveling conditions (including borrowing my mom’s new Corolla for the trip). Ashley even made a new friend while we where there:summer 060
  2. On our way to TN, we stopped and had lunch at Chick-fil-a.  Yes, this makes me happy because we don’t have a Chick-fil-a in our area (we have one about an hour away). But, the fun part was meeting up with Jolanthe from No Ordinary Moments and Homeschool Creations. We had a great time chatting over lunch and getting to know each other better.

  3.  My mom quit her job this week and though that doesn’t directly relate to me, I’m happy for her!  Her job was really starting to stress her out, so I’m hoping that she can relax and enjoy her retirement.  
  4. Peaches.  I bought a 1/2 bushel of peaches from a guy I like to call our “traveling produce man”.  They are YUMMY!  So far this week, we’ve had peach struedel with ice cream and brownie sundaes with peach topping (that probably sounds kinda gross, but I’ve discovered that brownies and peaches go pretty well together)!
  5. Music.  Seems like we get to listen to a lot of music between Ashley playing her guitar and Gracie playing the violin and piano.  The girls and I all have ipods and Ian has a hand-me-down mp3 player.  Our lives would just be pretty boring without music.

I love listening to music played by my children, its so much sweeter.

We don't have a chick-fil-a close by either, so I always enjoy going to one. Especially the sweet tea!

Sigh. I'm looking forward to going East - one of the reasons being Chick fil A! How sad is that?!?!

And to meet up with friends? Does it really GET any better?

I love meeting bloggy friends in real life! That is a great picture of the two of you. We love music here too and not a day goes by that it's not playing in some room of the house or other!

I hear so much about your chick-fil-a. We don't have them here. If I ever get to the States I so have to stop at one! LOL.

Sounds like your trip was lots of fun. Love both pics you shared.
