Happy Friday! Today is my first day back at work after having the past two weeks off. I wish I didn’t have to go back until Monday, but I guess I can’t really complain about a one day work week. We don’t really have any plans this weekend other than to make a trip out to the mall to do some exchanges/returns. This is Kevin’s last free weekend before school starts again on Monday so it will probably be pretty low key. Here is my Friday Five for today:
ONE | A big congratulations to our friends, Matt and Ashton, on their recent engagement! Matt has been Kevin’s best friend since they were kids and was the best man in our wedding. We are so excited for the two of them and can’t wait to celebrate with them at their wedding this year!
TWO | Kevin’s dad gave us the coolest gift this year! He took all of our old Christmas cards and made them into ornaments. I love this idea and will now look forward to getting our new one each year!
THREE | Loving my new Ina Garten cookbook! I spent some of the day yesterday looking through it while meal planning for next week. Can’t wait to try out these recipes!
FOUR | Speaking of recipes, I recently made this beef stew from Iowa Girl Eats and it was so good! It is served over mashed potatoes which Kevin loved. This is the perfect cold weather meal and I definitely recommend making it.
FIVE | I’m having a hard time wanting to take down our Christmas decorations especially our card display. I love looking at everyone’s pictures hanging in our living room! I might just have to keep this up a little while longer. 🙂
Have a great weekend!
