High Five for Friday

It's Friday again! TGIF . . . amiright?

If I have anyone out there that actually reads my H54F posts, I'm sorry I missed the last couple. Let me explain what you missed.

1. Last weekend was Adam and my anniversary. Yep, two full years have been recorded in the books. Who keeps those books? I don't know. Anyway, I feel so blessed and honored to be Adam's wife. I love looking back on the day we said our 'I dos' on August 17 two years ago, which was such a great day. As part of our anniversary, we went to Minneapolis to relax and spend some QT together.We also went to a Royals vs. Twins game (obvi) and were able to meet up with some friends who moved up there. For your viewing pleasure. . . a fun flashback picture. I just love him.

2. Adam has officially started working for himself and has been doing great! He was fortunate enough to get some work right away for some good friends of ours (who just happen to be our neighbors, so that worked well). He's got a few other jobs lined up, and has been keeping busy by working on our house. 

3. My brother-in-law is headed to Indiana this week for his next adventure in physical therapy school in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. He is (obviously) Adam's brother, and was his roommate up until we got married. He has become a true brother and even more best friend (don't tell him that), and I am very sad to see him leave (and be 10 hours away, at that). He moved in with us at the beginning of August so we've all been playing the "roommate" role the past few weeks. We spent his last day in Ames at El Azteca (another obvious one) and played yard games (Mexican golf, obviously). We'll be praying for his new adventure, though he'll do great.  I should also mention that his fiance is also a good friend of ours (because of the whole fiance thing), and we'll likely be seeing less of her, too. So it's a double whammy. 

4. I've decided to slow my hair appointments down in order to save a bit of money. In the spring, I had this crazy idea of going blonde, which I've never done before. Well, I did it and really liked it. But the time has come to go back to my roots (literally!). So last night I went dark and am planning on nixing the appointments (besides maybe just a trim here and there) to grow it out and go au natural. Adam's mentioned time and time (and time and time and time and time) again that he likes my long, dark hair. We'll see how long I can last this time before chopping it off again. But for now, it's nice to get back to my dark hair. Long live brunettes! 

5. Adam and I have a few things going on this weekend, but tonight we're spending some time with a couple that we're good friends with, who just found out they are expecting a little girl in January. Since we've both gotten so busy with our lives these days, I've found it's important to make time for some good friend time. I'm looking forward to it. 

Cheers to Friday. . . Enjoy your weekend. It's supposed to be hot here, so hopefully it will be an "inside weekend". Sending blessings your way.
