Five on Friday!

Happy Friday! Linking up with Christina, April, Darci, and Natasha!


ONE  |  Father's Day

Father's Day is on Sunday, and I don't know about your dad, but mine is so difficult to buy for!
Does anyone have any good ideas?!  

Happy Father's Day, Dad - I love you very much!! Thank you so much for all that you have done and continue to do for us!



TWO  |  31st Wedding Anniversary

This week was my parent's 31st wedding anniversary! I am so thankful for their example of a Christ-centered marriage... I am looking forward to growing old with John and celebrating our 31st anniversary some day!

By the way, does anyone else besides me enjoy looking at old pictures?!
I swear, I could look at them for hours!



THREE  |  Baby Shower

This weekend I am co-hosting a baby shower for my coworker who is preggo with a sweet baby girl!  I have been crafting and baking all week, so I am looking forward to seeing it all come together!

You have probably seen this quiz around Facebook... I decided to give it a try, and supposedly Dubai best fits my personality.  Not quite sure what this says about me, but I have seen a House Hunters International in Dubai, and it looked pretty cool... so I'll go with it!

Have you taken the quiz?  What country did you get?!



FIVE  |  Summer Porches

And now that it's summer, can we just take a second and admire these beyond amazing porches?!

A girl can dream, right!!?

  3. Hooray for Father's Day! This year I'm planning a Father/Daughter date over gifts. I did it with my mom & it was a hit! It's hard to find the perfect gift for somebody who can buy whatever they want whenever they want. Ha! Parents who have been married for years on end are so encouraging!! My parents have been married for 33 years this year & it's inspiring! Loving those summer porches!! Have a great weekend! :)

  10. Love that quiz - I got Italy and that totally hit the nail on the head!! Love the dipped pretzels you're preparing for the baby shower!! Have a great weekend!

  11. I went and took the quiz and I got India - which is funny because that is one place I have no interest in going to. Still fun though!
    What is it about porches that are so perfect? I just love them!! I have to dream as my own "porch" is more like an enlarged front step (let's be honest, it's not dreamy).

    Have a great weekend!

  12. I have a friend who is teaching in Dubai and he loves it and it looks gorgeous. I think it's a great choice. Those porches are to die for!

  16. i can't wait to see pics from the baby shower. You are always so crafty. I don't have any good ideas for father's day. I'm getting my dad shorts, a hat and some books. Pretty boring but thats what he wants. Car wash books are always nice.

  17. Dad's seriously are the hardest to buy for...but luckily, they seem to genuinely love and appreciate anything you give them! Even if it's the same gift year after year {hey...no one can have too many shirts...right???} Love the photos from your parents' wedding! I, too, love going through old photos. I lose all track of time when I start down that road! Have a fabulous weekend!

    Have a happy weekend!

  25. I love looking through old pictures - especially of my parents who look totally different! It's fun. Those porches are making me jealous! I'm dying for a big porch and backyard - which I fantasize over every summer. Have a great weekend lady!

  26. Oh loving those porches! There is nothing better than sitting out on the porch on a summer morning, iced coffee in hand ;) Stopping by from the link up !

  27. Congrats to your parents on their anniversary!

    My dad can be hard to buy for too. He likes to golf so I bought him this thing called The Pill, it's shaped like a tire and it helps you with your golf game. I got the idea from Kathie Lee and Hoda on the Today Show, here's the link to the video for more Father's Day ideas!

  28. I took that quiz and got France! Looks like I need to schedule a trip! My dad is so hard to buy for I normally just get him lotto scratchers!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yes, my dad is the hardest person ever to shop for!! Always a challenge!! And he never wants me to spend money on him so I can't ask. I usually get him an array of cookies and a gift certificate for one of his favorite lunch spots! Men! So hard to shop for!.

  36. I seriously love looking at old pictures, it always intrigues me to see how photography USED to be!! It's so awesome... yay for Dads! Is it weird that I think my Dad is both so hard and so easy to buy for at the same time!? Haha :)

  42. I so wish I had a porch to sit on regularly! So peaceful! Getting to 31 years is a huge accomplishment what a great example.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I am obsessed with porches!! When we started house hunting it was on my "must have" list but now I've realized that's not totally reasonable haha. One day though! And how cute are those pretzel sticks? Hope the shower went well!

    ReplyDelete
  44. 31 years is such a huge accomplishment! My parents are approaching 30 and I'm so thankful for the example they have provided. And I could look through old pictures for hours. It's one of my favorite things to do! Can't wait to see more pictures from the shower!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I took that country quiz a few weeks ago and ended up with New Zealand. Definitely a place I want to visit but not on my list to move to.

    ReplyDelete
  46. My parents will be celebrating 31 years this year too! Haha every time I read your blog I discover we have something else in common. Those pictures of their wedding are so cute.

    Also, those pretzels look delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Those pics of you and your dad are beyond cute!!
    Also... I don't know about you, but I've been super bummed about missing five on Friday for the summer. If you're interested my friend Karli {september FARM} and I {the farmer's wife} are starting up a link-up "oh hey, friday!" with the exact same outline and would love for you to join us this Friday! Hope to see you there.
    xoxo
