Friday Five {Vol. 3}


Here are five things that made me smile this week.

1. God’s provision.  I am always amazed by how God provides for our financial needs!  Sometimes I look at the numbers on paper and it seems impossible to pay all of the bills.  But, without fail the money is always there when we need it.  It seems to trickle in without me even noticing it.

2. Horses.  There is a small pasture with three horses near our house.  Sometimes we walk past it and if the horses are out we try to coax them to come over.  They always think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence and will happily munch on the grass we pull up and offer them.IMG_20130424_175423

3. Good days that follow bad.  Henry went through a growth spurt this week.  I could feel it creeping up….fussy…..clingy….then it hit……and it hit hard.  He wanted to eat every hour, stayed awake for 12 hours straight and SCREAMED if I put him down for any reason.  Ughh…thankfully there are always good days that follow those bad days. 🙂

4. Five Guys.  We haven’t eaten out in a looooong time.  I tried to think of the last place we went and I couldn’t remember what it was.  Yesterday I convinced Stephen that we should go eat at Five Guys.  I absolutely LOVE their burgers!!  Mmmmmm my mouth is watering just thinking about it.  If you have ever been there you know that they have index cards and crayons for their customers to write notes or draw pictures and then post them up on the cork board.  One time I spied this drawing on the board and I stole it.  Yes, lock me up, I am a criminal!  Thank you amazing, anonymous, crayon artist…..your drawing still makes me smile after all of these years of looking at it on my cork board.DSC02773

5. Chocolate Chips.  I love chocolate and if I buy chocolate candy I will gobble it down.  For some reason I tend to forget that I usually have chocolate chips in the cabinet.  On those days when I am really craving chocolate I’ll have one of those “eureka!” moments when I remember the chocolate chips. 🙂

So what made you smile this week?
