HAPPY FRIDAY! I love being able to say that! Weekends are the best. 🙂 We are excited to have a date night this evening, and to spend time with my sister and brother-in-law who will be coming in to town for a wedding!
Last week I started the Friday Faves tradition, where we can take a look back at our weeks and focus on the moments of blessings and joy. Here are a few of mine, and I’d love for you to share yours in the comments!
- Wedding Pictures by Kelcy Leigh Photography
We got our wedding pictures in!! It was so much fun looking through them and remembering our favorite day ever. It’s crazy what a blur it was, and I’m so thankful we have beautiful pictures to remember it by now! I plan to share some on Facebook along with a blog post in the coming weeks. 🙂
2.Monday Night Basketball
Brady joined a basketball league that started this week and I got to go watch him play! Crazily enough, this was my first time getting to watch him and I loved being the proud wife on the sidelines. 🙂 Plus, there was never a dull moment as I got to sit with my friends Jerrica and Nichole and their 4 little girls. Let’s just say that we had lipstick in many, many places…
3. Homemade Fish and Chips
While Brady and I were in Seattle a few weeks ago, we fell in love with fish and chips! I was pumped to find this healthier, baked version on Pinterest and we tried it out Tuesday night. It was a bit time consuming, but it was fun to prepare it together and it tasted AMAZING! We scarfed it down so fast that I couldn’t get a good picture of it. 😉 We will be making it again, and I plan to document it so I can share the recipe on here for you all!
4. A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix
Did anyone else read these books back in the day?! I LOVED them, and Netflix’s new series has made me so happy. 🙂 It’s definitely quirky, but I love the cinematography, acting, and nostalgia. If you were also a nerd who read these books, check this show out!
5. Crocheting a New Blanket
Michael’s has had a big sale on their yarn this week, so I thought it was no better time to stat a new blanket! I love almost anything crafty! When I found out about our new nephew Oliver, I wanted to make him something special and unique, so I touched up on my crochet knowledge and went to work on a blanket!
It is such a great way to keep your hands busy while watching movies or sports, and I love that you can create something so pretty with your own hands. The blanket I am working on now is pretty detailed, so I’m expecting it to take a few months at least. It’s a great way to test my patience and to remind myself that great things take time, and instant gratification isn’t always what we need. Hopefully I will have an updated pic of my progress for you all soon!
I hope you all have a great weekend! Take time to relax, be with the ones you love, and soak in God’s grace and goodness.
What’s one of your favorite things from the past week?
