High Five For Friday- 30.09.16

It is Friday!  Woot woot!  This week has felt long for some reason so I am looking forward to some time off.  Here are the five highlights from my week:

1.)  Birthday parties galore!  We have attended 2 birthday celebrations this week and have one more tonight.  I like birthday celebrations and have really enjoyed seeing friends and family at the gatherings this week.  Miss. E is having a lot of fun, too.  She especially enjoys the cake!  (She takes after her Mama, it would seem.)

2.)  We had our first adoption meeting this week.  It was basically an information meeting.  We appreciated all of the information and the answers to our questions.  We are excited to get the ball rolling on the next step to expanding our family.  It sounds like it will be a long road (years), but we are happy to be on the path towards welcoming another child into our family.

3.)  I dyed my hair and got new glasses.  I am like a brand new woman, ha ha!  I am really happy with how it all turned out.  My glasses are extremely different than the style I have worn for years so they will take some getting used to!

4.)  Miss. E and I baked cookies together this week.  She did really well and enjoyed helping me measure and stir.  It was a lot of fun!

5.)  I had a great mail week!  I received a prize pack from Kenton de Jong.  I had entered one of his contests on Instagram and won!  Kenton writes a travel blog, with a lot of great posts about Saskatchewan.  You should check it out!

Selfie stick!  Woot woot!

I also received 2 new pairs of jeans for my Fall Capsule Wardrobe (click the link to read all about it!).

I love dressing for Fall!

My Amazon order also arrived which had some awesome stuff in it, including Miss. E's Halloween costume and some great Fall themed books for us to read to her.

I hope you are all having a great week, as well!  Have an awesome weekend!  If you want to join the link up or read some great posts, click the link below.


  1. Hooray for birthday cake! Ugh I need to think about getting new glasses, and I hate that whole process. But my current ones are four years old, and the protective coating is starting to wear off the lenses--eek! Congrats on starting the adoption process, that's wonderful news Ashley! :) Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. I didn't realize you were considering adoption - that is wonderful! Love your fall outfit pattern mixing (or as my husband mistakenly calls it, "pattern matching"). :) Have a lovely weekend!
