Five on Friday


It's late Friday evening.

Isn't it funny how Friday nights go from the night to go out, drink and stay up late, to just another night only separated by the lack of alarms for the husband and one more episode of whatever you are binge watching at the time?  Sometimes growing up only reflects in the small things.... like a Friday night at home with your family and waking up well rested Saturday morning.

This evening.. I am adding blogging to my crazy Friday night.

--Things with Diesel, our crazy 9 week old puppy, are getting easier.  He really is a fantastic dog.  Already doing REALLY well in his obedience training.  His potty training is slowly improving and although he still isn't leaving Grace's toys alone... and he is still using everything including my toddler to teeth on... he spends more time sleeping then causing havoc.  Bonus points for the five hours he let me sleep last night between potty breaks.

--I just finished binge watching Gossip Girl, again.  I am still just as obsessed this time as I was last time.  I've started into Nashville, and while it took me awhile to really get into it, I'm almost done with season one and hooked.  Yes, I will admit I have a binge watching problem.

--A week or so ago, Rob and I really made an effort to meet our neighbors.  The family that just moved in across the street is a fellow military family and her husband is currently deployed.  And the family next door was outside in their backyard and witnessed us losing Piston.  Not our finest moment but definitely made it so we share something with them.  I'm hoping to extend an olive branch this weekend and invite them over for BBQ soon.  We are going to be here for another 2 and a half years, so we might as well know the people surrounding us.

--We can't wait for next weekend, Memorial Day, as our military best friends are coming up from Georgia to see us!  They came and saw us last year after we moved here for Veteran's Day and they are coming up again this weekend.  This time my husband should actually be off though and I expect it to be just like we never left, plenty of shenanigans to be had.

--I spent the afternoon rearranging our living room and I now have an insane desire to move furniture around in other rooms, or redecorate, or something.  Maybe this will be the weekend I add a bag of mulch to our front flowerbed.  Or finally take a board and make one of those welcome signs for the front door area.  Big plans being made this Friday evening... which I am sure will be cast aside come tomorrow morning.

But I am rolling with it this weekend.

Happy weekend my friends!


always,

  3. When we get into our home, we hope to meet our neighbors. I'm just pretty shy.
