Five on Friday

Friday, July 12, 2013

Happy Friday! I have been looking forward to this day all week! I’m loving these Link-Ups, and love that it’s sunny and warm on a Friday! 

One: I have gotten to spend a lot of family time this week, which has been really great. My parents and brother along with my in-laws all live really close to us, so it’s nice to have nights sitting out on the patio talking with a glass or three of wine ☺ 

Two: Since it has been really sunny in Oregon and all the fresh fruits and vegetables have really started to ripen, we have been making a lot of homemade dinners. This week I was craving pizza and made a gluten-free pesto chicken pizza which turned out amazing if I do say so myself. I will post the recipe soon so you can try it out too! 

Three: Today is one of my best friend’s birthdays so I’m excited to celebrate with him tonight. We are going to dinner and bowling with their family, and my husband actually gets to come with us so I am really excited for a fun night out. 

Four: Since Monday is our wedding anniversary and we both work, we decided to go to the beach this weekend. My in-laws have a beach house a little over an hour away so we are going to go spend the weekend there. It’s literally my dog’s favorite place, so it will be fun to have the whole weekend with both my boys! I’m really looking forward to some walks on the beach, a nice dinner and bon-fire on Saturday night, and just some time to get away from the busyness of life. 

Five: I got to chat with my best friend last night after her night meeting. It was so good to hear her voice and hear how some of my old volunteers were doing. She and I used to work together and now she is staffing one of my favorite events, so it’s nice to hear updates from her every now and then. One of the most difficult things when making the transition to my new job is not seeing her every day, so I really appreciate our lunch/dinner dates and phone calls! I am so thankful to have made such great friends at my last job, and really happy that we are staying close even though we don’t see each other nearly as often! 

Well that’s my Five on Friday. Hope everybody has a wonderful weekend. Since I’m going to the beach, I probably won’t have internet till Monday, but I will update you all when I return!
