Five on Friday!

Friday, October 30, 2015

It's so good to be back with everyone this Friday! Last week I didn't have time to blog due to cleaning the house for our little cook out last weekend. Thankfully, we've got another low-key weekend which I am so looking forward to.

Tomorrow is officially d-day for our niece! We are SO excited for her arrival but it's looking like my sister-in-law will have to be induced because baby girl seems to want to stay where she's at. She should be here this time next week!

She's come a long way from that unforgettable night in February when they told us they were expecting!

After moving into the new house, I wasn't as good about reading my Bible as I should have been. It was hard to get into a routine and especially since there seemed like so much more to do. When I was younger, I always tried to do my devotions at night, right before bed. Once I got married, it got a little harder because I had someone telling me to turn the light off so they could go to bed. A few months ago, I saw someone post about the First 5 devotional app and looked into it. I am really enjoying it so far! I've been doing it for a few weeks now and I love that it has a reminder so when I wake up, I'm reminded to read it and start my day with God. Right now, they're finishing up the story of Joseph and I think the next devotional set will be of Matthew. 

There's a pretty graphic at the beginning of every lesson

I saw on Wednesday, from Sheaffer, that Costco now sells Hunter boots!! Honestly, I have no clue what the price is at Costco because we don't have a membership but if someone knows, please enlighten me! I'm toying with the idea of asking for some for Christmas but I'm still not sure how much use I'd really get from them. 

**Update!! I had a friend tell me they are about $80 at Costco which is a great price compared to $150 at Nordstrom. However, I have been hearing that Nordstrom will do a price match over the phone (not sure about in store)

Tomorrow is our first Halloween in our house and I cannot wait to hand out candy to our neighbors! Stephen heard that people from all over come to our neighborhood to trick or treat since we live in a large neighborhood. We are throwing out the idea of dressing up a little and hanging out in the driveway but we'll see. Hopefully we have enough candy since we already ate 2 bags (oops!). Earlier this week we watched It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown which is always fun and gets you in the spirit.

I'm going to leave you with this video of a co-worker trying to catch a GIANT moth at work yesterday. You can follow me on Snapchat at ashleyhirst23

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a fun Halloween!


  1. I remember I scored my hunter boots on sale for $50 it was a good deal then but I say get them you'll get a lot of wear out of them! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. omg CostCo hunters!! I don't have a membership, either..but I know at our Sam's Club the prices compared to regular retail are unreal. If you find out, you need to keep us all posted!

    1. My friend told me they are about $80 at Costco right now and Nordstrom is doing a price match at least over the phone! I feel like I need to jump on this before it all dies down and we can't get those prices anymore.

  3. Yay for your little niece! Can't wait to hear more :)

  4. Enjoy Halloween in your new house! Also, so exciting about your niece. I was induced two weeks ago and the process went well, so wishing your SIL all the best!

  5. So exciting about your niece! And I'll have to check out the First 5 app - I'm always struggling to do regular devotions. - Svetlana @Life With a Side of Wine

    1. Thanks!! We are so very excited! I really like doing that app and the fact that it has a built in reminder for me that I schedule every morning :)
