Five on Friday

Hello all. I hope this post finds you well and happy.

I am doing well. My family and I are looking forward to a quick trip for the 4th of July. Campfires, boat rides and family time is in our future.

Here is my 5:

 We spent many hours redoing our deck in May and June. Now we are finally reaping the benefits. I am working on some socks in the Monkey pattern using Tosh Sock in the Ginseng colorway. I love LOVE love this pattern. It is simple, quick and beautiful. I had some issues with the yarn pooling on the foot however, I think I have taken care of that! Maybe next week, these will be done. (That could be wishful thinking.
 Here is the gang for one last picture before one family leaves to start their new journeys. These kids have hung out and been friends for the last 5 years. Clearly, they have a great time together and these events in our lives will be dearly missed.
 Here are the moms. We met through our daycare and became friends quickly. My dear friend L on the right moved on Monday. Her hubby took a job as a pediatrician 3 hours away. While our twice a week, last minute dinners are out of the question, we at least get to visit for a whole weekend at a time. Plus we have already starting emailing a lot to stay in contact. 
 I have always wondered about the benefits of having only one child. For some reason, I believe you here more negative than positive so I thought I should read about.
The past week, my husband and I have decided to get back into shape. We work out for 30 mins together and try to tackle our eating habits. So far, I feel better and have smaller black circles under my eyes. Hopefully, I can stick to it ;)

Here is more 5 on Friday.


  1. I hope that your exercise plan goes well. It sounds as though you have a lot on right now, so take your time and enjoy it! Thank you for joining in with Five On Friday. I hope you have a fun weekend! xx

  2. Saying goodbye to friends is never easy but just think of the fun you'll have on those long weekends. Good luck with your new training regime.

  3. Our daughter is an only child and she's done just fine in life. I have 2 siblings and life has been difficult for both of them and I'm only close to one of them. So you just never know.

  4. Never easy having to say goodbye to friends, but with the advancement of technology a little easier to stay in touch.

  5. Thanks for sharing your Friday Five! I am eager to start a new pair of socks. Your beautiful efforts encourage me :) May you and yours be blessed as you make your transition with friends on the move, and as you think about only children, and embrace your shaping up routine. Happy July 4th! xx

  6. Madison is like that -- people moving in and out. It can be hard.
    I'm with you on the healthy living. I've got to exercise more!
