Five for Friday on Saturday!

Today I'm joining one of my favorite linkups to talk about my five favorite things from the week!  Thanks to NatashaDarciApril, and Christina for hosting the fun. :)  I love reading their blogs!

Okay now for the fun!

{1}  Fun with Friends and Fam

This week, I got to share meals with some pretty fun folks.  There is just something about sharing a meal and sharing life with friends and family.  I love getting to sit and hear about what is going on in our lives and if delicious food is involved, so much the better!  From meeting a new friend for lunch at one of my favorite places to meeting a friend I have journeyed through life with for a while for a delicious dinner, I am so thankful for the way God constantly is at work bringing community into my life as we seek to serve him together.  I also got to eat dinner with my in-laws this week and that was another fun treat.  I'm so thankful they are in my life!

{2}  Vanilla Bean Bake Shoppe

I have wanted to stop by this local food truck for a long time and finally I got to go this week!
All the flavors look so delicious!  I'll have to go back and try one of their Monster ice cream sandwiches. :)

For my first trip, I chose the salted caramel chocolate chip and it did not disappoint!!

{3} Book Club

My book club met this week to discuss A Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman.  

It is such a powerful book and it looks like a movie might be in the works.  I highly recommend it!!  I love meeting with the gals in my book club and catching up on life.  I also love book club because it challenges me to read books outside my comfort zone. :)

{4} Fall on the Horizon

I love fall and with Labor Day this weekend, heralding the end of summer, I'm thrilled that fall is on it's way.  Certainly in Texas it does not signal the end of oppressive heat, but at least we can enjoy Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the air conditioning.
I've loved lighting this candle to get a little smell of the season to come!  Bring it!! :)

{5} Hubby is Home!!

Last night my favorite thing of the week happened -- my hubby returned from a work trip to Chicago!  It was so great to see him.  I know he was only gone for four days, but I missed him so much!!  

He even brought me a fun treat of Garrett's Chicago Blend popcorn!

Hope you enjoy your weekend!  We're so happy about the start of football season!!  Go Bears! :)


  1. That popcorn looks yummy! I ready to pull out my fall candles too!

  2. I love trying treats from food trucks. That cookies looks amazing! Glad you're hubby is home with something good for you to try. :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love reading your comments. :)
