High Five For Friday

Happy Friday!
I am excited to get to have a date night with my husband tonight. We are both so busy all of the time that we rarely go out. My mom is watching Amelia for us and Amelia informed me this morning that it is her pony Alinda's birthday today... and she is going to have a party for her at Grandma's. Too cute. Well here's my Friday post, linking up with Lauren over at From My Grey Desk.

1. My Aunt Shannon is teaching me how to knit, and I love it so far. She is so incredibly talented; I would consider myself lucky to one day be half as talented as she is in the knitting department. I'm pretty proud of what I've got so far. 

2. Amelia got a new pair of Toms from her Auntie Erica. They are so incredibly cute! My girl has style.

3. I've been babysitting more this month, and I think I have filled all of my slots! I really love kids and we just have a blast during the day. I'm so glad to have such amazing kids and wonderful parents... and my daughter is a pretty awesome little helper.

4. My best friend Molly was in town for a visit so we got to go on a dinner date. This is a picture from years back at my cousin's wedding. We are sometimes a little "special" when we get together. Here we were being fierce tigers... I don't even know.

5. For lent I decided I was going to follow Weight Watchers exactly how I am supposed to. I have a hard time sticking to something for more than a few days, so this is good for me. I've done pretty well so far and lost 2.8 pounds my first few days.

Have a great day All! It is a nasty, rainy and windy day here in Oregon... just the way I like it.

  1. It is nasty today, isn't it? Congrats on your success with Weight Watchers so far this Lent!

    1. It was nasty out! But I guess today is making up for it. I love when winter turns to spring in Oregon. I guess it is the excitement of the sun, but once the August heat hits... I'm ready for winter again.
