Five on Friday: Sunday Edition

I'm linking up again with NatashaDarciApril, and Christina on this drizzly Sunday.  Some little allergen blew in this week and has kept me a little off my A game, but here's my review of the week. :)

{1} The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
This book is SO good.  It has been a while since I have been truly taken in by a book from the first page and this one was so intriguing that I had a difficult time putting it down.  Probably another reason the blog has been a little neglected lately. :)  The book takes you on the journey of Victoria who has lived her life in the foster care system and you meet her on her 18th birthday when she is being emancipated.  Interwoven in her current story as she begins living life on her own, the reader is transported to Victoria's one loving foster experience and how it has impacted her life forever.  I loved this story so much and found its commentary on the ties of family, love and self-perception to be valuable lessons.  We read it in my book club this week and had such a wonderful conversation about how the book related to different areas of our own lives.  I definitely took time to look up the flowers I had chosen for my wedding in the flower dictionary in the back of the book!

{2}A Weekend Visit

Last weekend we spent time with my parents to celebrate my dad's birthday.  It was so fun to get to relax and to see one of my sweet flower girls be baptized!

{3} What's Cooking?

This week, the mister and I made this delicious Mexican Chicken Spaghetti.  It was a fabulous quick and easy weeknight meal!  I highly recommend it for your posse.  We got three meals out of it!

{4}  Float Friday

This sweet treat was the perfect addition to my Friday afternoon at work!

{5} Legally Blonde!!

Friday night the mister and I got to enjoy a fun evening out, watching Baylor's production of "Legally Blonde".  The cast was fantastic and voices so professional they would have been at home on any Broadway stage.  We certainly enjoyed our fun night out!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
