High Five for Friday

Hello, lovers.  I have been sitting on my side of the bed for almost thirty minutes, while my husband sits beside me and glances over every few minutes and says.."Have you still not written anything?" Um, no.  He is laughing at me.  He's not funny.  

Here are the highlights from my week...

I decided to "clean" the garden out.  By clean I mean pull weeds.

Got a little carried away.  
With the exception of a few pepper plants, the garden is no more.

I got a basket full of colorful goodies on my last harvest.

Heather at River & Bridge had a giveaway on Instagram.  I never participate in giveaways because I have terrible luck..I never win anything.  It was a giveaway for you and a friend to win a set of personalized stationery.  I entered myself and Nicole.  We won!! 

Rumor has it that this stationery will be in the October BridgeBox.  You have until the 15th to order yours!

Brittney gave me the cutest nail kit for my bday and I am wearing this polish lately on my toes.  Love it for Fall.  The color is Mink Muffs by Essie.  Mink Muffs??...I don't know where these people come up with these names, but they crack me up.

Doing my third color run this weekend with Kyle and Trey.  They have never done one, so I think they will have a lot of fun.  It's the kick off to Trey's bday celebration.  I can't believe in one week he will be 14 years old.  Sorta makes me feel old.  He told me the other day one of his friends saw us at the grocery store and at school the next day the boy asked how old I was and Trey said 37.."I said..uh, try 36..don't make me older than I already am.."  His friend said "whoa, I thought she was like 21".  My response..."well that is nice..and umm that would mean that I birthed you when I was 7..and can he be my your new best friend?"  It's still nice/awkward when new friends think I'm his sister and not his Mother.  
I'll take it..and some more eye cream, wrinkle reducer please.  Because apparently it's working for me.

oh, and if you want to register for the color run use code tnfriends for $5.00 off your registration.

Speaking of Trey and the grocery..something totally humiliating happened yesterday in the grocery parking lot.  I got out of the car...and before you get all judgy you and I both know this has happened to you before.. I had a major wedgie. Whether anyone else could tell or was uncomfortable for me.  So when I got out of the car..I shut the door, Trey took off thinking I was following him.  I whispered  "Trey, wait I have to fix my pants.." So as I am fixing myself and trying to discretely make my situation comfortable and presentable Trey mumbles something and walks off.  I catch up with him quickly and I say "what did you say?" Teenagers mumble and it is so annoying.  Sometimes I have to ask him ten times to repeat himself and we are both so frustrated by the end of the conversation that it no longer matters to either of us what he was saying.  Anyway, he says..."did you not see the lady in the car beside you while you were doing whatever you were doing?" First of all, I giggled because it sounded like something smart I would say...  Second of all I turned around and saw a woman sitting in the car beside mine.  With her window down.  She was staring at me.  Helllo, embarrassment!  I looked at mouth was wide open and for once I had no words.  He laughed and said..."I tried to tell you." I said, "Well, I can't understand you when you mumble, and if that car is still there when we are done shopping we will have to wait for them to leave." He rolled his eyes and looked at me like I was crazy, but truth be known I'm pretty sure he never wanted to lay eyes on that woman again either..err he never again wanted her to lay eyes on his crazy Mother. I could have died.

I got these super cute star patterned (have to look closely) Rockstar skinnies from Old Navy.
and I absolutely love my ring from the Mexican market in San Antonio.

Kyle is a few months into his mowing business and this week he got a new (used) zero turn mower.  
I couldn't wait to drive it.  

 It's a huge machine (compared to the other mower) and it was crazy weird to drive, but eventually I got the hang of it and he couldn't get me off of it.  It even has a little cooler attached to it.  Apparently my zero turn driving skills were not up to par because I was only give permission to actually mow the back yard.  He's pretty anal when it comes to the grass...(for which I am yard always looks awesome)

After relentlessly torturing my voodoo doll I have come to the conclusion that the only purpose of the $1.00 dolls you buy at the French Market is to make yourself feel better, rather than hurting the person actually intended for the torture.  What ever works, right?

I was surprised to see this post on my fb this made me laugh because I knew exactly what made her so happy about her gift before she actually opened it...

Since the JT and Jimmy Fallon hashtag video went viral my friends and I have communicated using hashtags.  Like hilarious conversations that only we find funny.  I covered her birthday present packaging in hashtags... #icantstop

We so crazy!!

Last weekend my guys took me to buy pumpkins and I got to play with these little baby chicks.  I wanted to take all of them home with me.  We literally had to go back and visit them three more times before we could leave the store.  I want chickens so badly that I even had the secretary of our HOA send me the bylaws because if it did not mention chickens in the restrictions then I was going to have chickens.  I was so excited when I had the copy in my hands.  Sadly, no chickens for me.  They covered all the bases as far as livestock goes.  I was bummed...I even had a coop plan picked out.  One day I will have my very own chicks!!

Thanks for stopping by to read about my week!!

Have a great weekend!
