Friday Favorites 7/17

Brilliant title, right? Here are some of my favorite things from the past week:

  • Saturday we went to Aaron's sister and brother-in-law's house for a fantastic party, complete with live band and fireworks.

Aaron and Cynthia dancing; Cynthia, Jim and Aaron

  • 11 hours of sleep Sunday night - and yes, that involved going to bed at 7:30!

  • Neighborhood Bastille Day party followed by karaoke send-off for a neighbor who is moving to Florida

That's What Friends Are For

  • The second season premiere of "Leah Remini: It's All Relative" (Wednesdays at 9 ET on TLC). You can have your Real Housewives, but this show cracks me up!

  • This silly girl

Once I turned on the hair dryer, she was outta there.

  • Facebook connections - Try to follow me here. Friends of ours from college who now live in Florida are currently in Iowa while their son is at the Lutheran Summer Music program. I realized that another friend of ours, who used to sing with us at church here in Columbus and now teaches in Indiana, is currently on staff at the summer program. In Iowa. I commented on FB about it to my college friends, who found my Columbus friend and introduced themselves. Then my Columbus friend (who, by the way wasn't even born when we were in college!) texted me about it. THAT is one of the reasons I actually love Facebook.

Have a great weekend!


  1. I love those FB connections!

    Eleven hours of sleep sounds heavenly.

  2. I hate FB most of the time- but cool connections like that ARE awesome! :)

  3. Eleven hours of sleep.......sigh.

  4. FB is so weird like that, I love FB for that reason too!

    Eleven hours of sleep would be sooooo nice!

  5. See? Sometimes the internet really does bring us closer together! I really love Leah's show and her hilarious family. I'm so glad it's back on! It looks like you had an awesome weekend, but I have to say I'm most jealous about 11 hours of sleep. Haha! My cats have been hanging out in the sinks too. I think it's cooler for them.
