Five on Friday

Friday, July 31, 2015

I'm so glad things are finally getting back to normal and I've had the time to regularly blog this week. It's been so nice getting to spend (some) nights not constantly working on the house.

I cannot believe today is the last day of July but oddly enough, I'm not sad about it. Usually I get so sad when summer is over but I feel like now that I'm not in school anymore, I'm not dreading starting classes again. Plus, I cannot wait for the fall weather (except it won't get here till Dec), football, all of our fun fall activities, trips and the best thing - our niece being born!! Bring it on, Fall!!

I just got done saying how I can't wait for fall to get here, but I will miss all the great fruit that is in season during the summer. I love fruit and lately every time I walk into Publix, there is all sorts of delicious fruits on sale! The only thing that stinks is I can't buy a ton of it because we don't have time to eat it.

Ever since I was a kid, I've been known as the lizard catcher (super random, I know). I couldn't stand to pick them up with my hands because I always got bit, but if there was a lizard in the house, I was the one to get it out. Lately, we've had a few lizards in our house so I've been on lizard duty. They're pretty easy to catch by placing a cup on top of them, then sliding a piece of paper under them and then throwing them out the door. Stephen now knows the drill when I yell for him to get a cup and a piece of paper.

Since we don't have cable and utilize Hulu for our TV experience, I've been watching Celebrity Family Feud and it's pretty funny! I've only watched a few but I'm excited to see an upcoming episode with some of the cast of Dancing with the Stars versus the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise alums. The other night I watched the episode with the Lawrence Brothers and about died when I saw them together again. Does anyone remember their Disney movies Jumping Ship and Horse Sense? I think those might be on my re-watch list this weekend.

To add onto the TV watching, I am so glad that the Bachelorette is over and Bachelor in Paradise is about to start! I couldn't stand watching Kaitlyn's season and I've heard Bachelor in Paradise is nuts (didn't watch any of the previous seasons), so I'm excited to give this new show a shot. Plus, they're bringing back some past greats.

I'm sure some of you have seen by now, but a dear blogger, Leslie Sisti of A Blonde Ambition, passed away earlier this week. I loved following along with Leslie and I am heartbroken to hear this news. She has two precious baby girls and a loving hubby, so please keep them all in your prayers!


  1. Omgosh I know what you mean about fall. I was actually starting to crave pumpkin and butternut squash this week. Of course, I'm enjoying our gorgeous summer temps though! Enjoy the weekend!

  2. I've never watched Bachelor in Paradise but sadly I might cave and start watching this season. I can't wait for Ben to be the next Bachelor, it HAS to be better than Kaitlyn's season! Happy Friday :)

  3. I didn't know Leslie or her blog, but what horrible news. I just read her last blog post and it is so eerie. I will definitely be praying for her family.

  4. Mmm I am so going to miss all the fresh fruit! The Bachelor/Dancing with the Stars family fued as a good one for sure – you will enjoy!

  5. A couple of years ago, I was obsessed with watching reruns of Family Feud on the Game Show network. I had no idea there was a Celebrity Family Feud. That sounds like such a fun show. I'll have to check it out.
