Friday talk

It's Friday afternoon. What a week we have had. It has just flown by us. Good things though.

Here are a few things happening around here.

1. We had our first MOPS meeting and it was great. We had around 35 moms and 8 that normally come didn't we are doing awesome. The fellowship was great. And I loved my group.

2. Scott was off yesterday so I got to go to Walmart by myself.....which is a treat. 2 hours...yes 2 hours at Walmart...remember I grocery shop for 2 weeks at a time....and only spent $270...not bad.

3. Madison had 2 tests this week which she scored high on both. Thank the Lord. Middle School is harder than I remember.

4. Miller started his first music class this week. Little ones gather together and play music once a week for 30 minutes. He did well. Better than I expected. He really enjoyed the keyboards.

5. Wednesday I had lunch with a dear friend. We ate at a great little restaurant downtown. I had the Grilled Chicken Greek salad....oh my gosh it was so good. I really enjoyed our catching up giggling till we cried conversation. Seeing her always makes me smile.

6. The weather here has cooled down feeling like fall already. It was so nice today. Miller and I ate lunch outside and played. Normally it has been so hot we do our playing outside before 10am.

7. We have a playdate Monday with friends and we are looking forward to this.

I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend. Madison is staying the night with a friend tonight. Scott and I are grilling pork chops. Not sure my sides...maybe a salad. Miller has a birthday party to go to 2 he is starting to get invites already....but this is a good thing for him. We picked his friends gift out today. It was kind of fun.
Scott works tomorrow....which is fine. We may hang out at home and then do the party. Sunday is church and then we have a friend having a cook out in the late afternoon. I'm making Strawberry lemonade and Potatoe Casserole....I'm hoping you all have a great weekend. I'll talk to you on Monday.

I have been wondering where you have been! I too am enjoying the weather. We have our windows open at home already! Love that. I woke up once last night and was a bit chilled but the covers took care of that right away.

Have a great weekend.

BTW you said my stepdaughter looked familar? What year did you graduate high school? Did you go to LOHS?

Jen you and I spend the same amount :) I shop for two weeks at a time too and that's about as much as I spend :)

Hope you have a great weekend!

It was a bit cooler here when the storm rained on us for several days but it'll be hot here this weekend. Have a good one!

Sounds like a really great week, Jen! Ours flew by, too, probably because of the holiday. I am so glad it is Friday, but I've been so busy today, I can't believe it's already almost evening.

Have a GREAT weekend, my friend!

Sounds like a busy week and a fun weekend - hope your hubby doesn't have to work much and you guys have fun at the cookout. Strawberry lemonade=yummy!

Our MOPS starts up again on Tues; looking forward to that! I decided to step down as finance this year, so I'm just going as a mom and not on Steering :)

Sounds like you had a great week and enjoyed a fun lunch with a friend!
