Five for Friday

Hi Friends!  Hallalujah -- it's Friday!!  So excited for the fun things this weekend has in store!  I'm linking up again with some of my favorite bloggers (NatashaDarciApril, and Christina) talking about five things from our week. :)

{1} Tree!

We had a new tree planted in our front yard this week.  It is a red maple and the Mister is certainly looking forward to the shade it will provide us during the scorching summer months!  We feel like official grownup homeowners now. :)

{2}  Crockpot Chicken Chili

Though the month on the calendar says September, the weather doesn't exactly feel much like fall yet, but Mr. G and I loved trying out a yummy meal that will for sure be even more tasty when there is a chill in the air!  We found our recipe here.

{3}  Junior League
We had our first meeting of the new year on Monday and it was so great to see people I hadn't gotten to visit with over the summer and meet some new ones.  We heard a lot about our upcoming Christmas holiday market and some exciting ways we are going to focus our efforts to serve women and children in our community!

{4}  Surprise Treats!
My mom texted me yesterday that one of her best friends was going to drop off a little surprise at my house yesterday and we both couldn't wait to see what it was.  Look what I found inside our cute gift bag...

Aren't they adorable!  I think these napkins would be so perfect for a tailgate or football watching party. :)

{5}  Weekend Fun!
I've been looking forward to this weekend so much because it will include fun time with some of my favorite people!!!  Weekends with friends are the best and we have some fun things planned for the weekend ahead!  Yay!  It may also include indulging in this chocolate chip pumpkin bundt. ;)

Enjoy your weekend!
