After more than a month of busy Fridays, I am so excited to get back to doing a Friday 5 post. My Friday 5 posts are the one thing that hasn’t changed much through my blogging years. I love the randomness they are filled with and the sense of excitement that it is finally Friday, again.
Here are this weeks Friday picks!
Burgundy pants were on my fall clothing wish list and it felt like I would never find a pair that fit.
And then I found these at Kohls. I love these pants. They are super comfortable and they don’t stretch out over the course of the day. I was a bit bummed that the tall size wasn’t a bit longer. If they were anything other than skinny jeans, they wouldn’t have worked out. Curse these long legs. I am hoping to snag another pair in gray sometime soon.
We just wrapped up week three of the ‘All Things Pumpkin’ link-up. Goodness, y’all have been sharing some great stuff. There have been so many posts that I have loved, but here are a few of my favorites from the first couple of weeks. There is one more week left, this coming Tuesday. We’d love to have you join us for the grand finale.
Pumpkin Planter – The Sirois Family
Pumpkin Spice Crunch Cake – Wife Mommy Me
Pumpkin Swirl French Toast – Polka Dotty Place
DIY Personalized Pumpkins – Hall Around Texas
Pumpkin Bread – Morning Motivated Mom
Hot Rod Reunion
This past Sunday was the 17th annual MoKan Hot Rod Reunion.
This marks year number three of loading up the family and heading to the drag strip. Last year we froze, this year we may have melted if the wind wasn’t blowing so stinking hard. You never know just what the weather in the Midwest is going to do at any given moment.
We saw several 10, 8 & 6 second cars. We also saw a turbo almost run a flat 4 #impressive. I love our family trips out to MoKan.
In other non related news I decided to kick up my pattern mixing by doing this. I still can’t decide if it works or if it looks like 90’s grunge. Either way, I feel the crowd I was in could have cared less.
Would you wear stripes with plaid?
Last week at our home school co-op we were teaching the kids on flexibility and God decided to teach more than just the kids that day. When I showed up I found out that I would not be able to use the copy machine meaning everything I had planned for the kids had to change. I instantly went into panic mode. I was angry, I was worried, I was frustrated. I was everything but flexible. Oh the irony! I went to class that day expecting to be the teacher, but I think I learned more than everyone else combined. God definitely has a sense of humor.
This week on the blog I shared…
