Five things Friday

Time for something new to shake things up!  So Five Things Friday it is!  I’ve been feeling very grateful and blessed lately so I thought I would do five things that I’m thankful for!


1.  This fella!  Our four year wedding anniversary is coming up and we’ve been together for a total of 8 yrs!  And we haven’t killed each other yet!!  Winking smile 



2, These two crazy girls!  I can’t imagine my life without my dogs- it would be so very empty!  These girls mean the world to me and I love them so much!!




3. New opportunities.  We recently had the opportunity to move.  So we’re moving to Dallas!  I don’t loooove Dallas and am a little sad to be leaving country life but this move will give us so many opportunities for the future!  I’ll be so much closer to school plus those two girls above will get a nice backyard to play in, which we don’t have now!




4.  This blog!!!  I’ve made so many new friends through blogging even though some of them live across the country from me!  I’ve always loved to cook but I never knew that I also loved to write my own recipes until I started blogging.  It’s one of my absolute favorite things to do… in fact as soon as I finish typing this I’m headed to the kitchen to test out a new muffin recipe I’ve been dreaming up!



5.  A new career path!  I volunteer for a program called Cooking Matters.  The last course I volunteered as a course assistant and had such a blast.  There’s a new course starting next week and I’m going to be the nutrition instructor this time.  What’s so crazy about this is that the course is in Cleburne where I taught as a music teacher for 4 years and eventually decided that teaching wasn’t the career for me.  It’s going to be a little strange going back there to teach, but it’s a completely different content and something I’m much more passionate about!  Time to dust off my teaching skills and put them to use again!

Now it’s your turn!  What are you thankful for today???



  1. 1. My hardworking hubby! He’s been gone like 3 weeks and I miss him…..but someone has to make some money!
    2. My super sweet baby girl….ok she’s almost 4….. she is so much fun and makes me so happy.
    3. My family that has always been there for me and helps take care of Claire when I need to do things for school.
    4. My beautiful messy house!
    5: The watermelon my mom gave us, it is the best ever!!!!

  2. I love this list! What a beautiful family (girls included) and Cooking Matters sounds so perfect for you – fun, challenging, and such a wonderful way to give back.

    I have so much to be thankful for too. I never pictured myself living in a big & fantastic city, with someone who loves me & a good job – and I have all of that in addition to the love & support of my family and friends 🙂
