High Five For Friday!

I can hardly believe that next week is September!  I am actually excited for Fall.  While I love summer, I don't exactly love the super hot temperatures or mosquitoes.  I am looking forward to Labour Day weekend!  Hubby has taken an extra day so we get to enjoy some extra time with him.  He is planning on catching a football game and I am planning on doing some shopping in the city.  Yay!  My next post won't be until Wednesday.  I am going to simply enjoy our family time over the weekend and then get back to my minimalism project and blogging on Wednesday!  Without further ado, here is my High Five For Friday:

1.)  We enjoyed a wonderful weekend with my parents at the cabin, last weekend!  The cabin is truly my happy place!  I get such a sense of peace and calm when I am there.

2.)  A good first week cloth diapering!  ***Warning- Poop talk ahead!***  I have started to cloth diaper my daughter and it is going really well.  I had decided to cloth diaper while I was pregnant.  I was not willing to pay the extra money for the newborn size diapers.  This decision meant that I had to wait until the larger diapers fit my daughter.  So far it has been a great experience!  The cloth diapers are great at containing the poop explosions, so I haven't had any of those this week!

3.)  Rain!  I know that the area farmers probably aren't pumped about this, but I like that it brings down the temperatures.  I really love the smell of rain, as well!

4.)  Shopping day with my Mom!  Mom, Miss. E and I are going shopping today and I am very excited.  I am not shopping for anything exciting (basically groceries), but it will be fun to have a day out with my Mom!

5.)  Fun BBQ for Hubby's workplace!  My husband's workplace held a BBQ this week and spouses/children were invited to attend.  We had a great time!  It was fun to get out and to meet new people.  I got to hear about wedding plans (always fun!), summer vacations and found another fan of my favourite football team (I am usually the odd-man out!).  It was good food and good company!
