High Five for Friday

It's finally Friday....woohoo!!  I've been looking forward to this day since Monday.  We all had an amazing week.  These are the highlights from my week.

Frozen grapes are my new thing...I have seen pins on Pinterest that suggest using them for helping your wine stay cold...Well, truth be told I drink my wine too fast to worry about it not being cold.  Yep..guilty folks..  That's just the way it goes 'round here..  Anywho, while we were at the beach I wanted something good, healthy and cool for a beach snack so I tried the frozen grapes.  They are so yummy!!  I've had them for breakfast every day since.  According to the myfitnesspal app 1/2 cup is 60 calories.  They are an especially awesome treat to satisfy a sweet tooth craving..  The red ones taste the best! Try em!

Wednesday morning I came to work and had this sweet note on my desk from my Dad.  It is special to me because unfortunately growing up none of us were that great at expressing affection, so to see this first thing in the morning made my day!!

Love him with all my heart!!

Sunday we decided to go to the lake and play...the weather was b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. 
Definitely a sun roof kind of day..

As soon as I got there I made myself a little frozen concoction....
It was so good I drank it with a spoon..

The little kids annnd the big kids (myself included) had a great day!

I manipulated my Dad's shopping list.  #1 on his list was bug lights...we'll see what he ends up getting.
I'm clever, I know..

Got my hair did on Tuesday.  This is what we have to go through to have awesome hair.

Of course, I can never leave the salon without some products.  I got my usual Kenra 25 hairspray, and it came with a sample of Kenra root lifter.  I have only used it once, but so far I think I might even like it a lot better than the Aquage root lifter.  We'll see.

I have been keeping this a secret for weeks.  My very special friend, Nicole, that lives in Texas had a baby Texas.. last weekend. Since the beginning of her pregnancy she has talked about getting a chalkboard for Henry's nursery, and to use in photographs. I found a chalkboard lady on Etsy that had the cutest things in her shop.  I had her make this to match sweet baby Henry's nursery decor.  I wrote a little message on it, wrapped it up, and shipped it in time for her to open at her shower.  I can't wait to see the amazing things she does with this board.  Best little baby shower gift ever!!

That's all folks..thanks for stopping by to read H54F.  I hope you all have a super fun weekend!!  Remember to thank your lucky stars for all of your blessings!!
