I have to say that this is probably my favorite meme to participate in because, even when I’ve had what I’d consider to be a crappy week, it encourages me to reflect back and find just 5 things that have been positive. I can usually end up thinking of more than 5, which is great – it just means my week wasn’t really as bas as I thought.
(one) I’m going to steal Suzanne’s #5 here. Gracie is, all of a sudden, really into nail polish, and it’s so much fun. I’m a toenails only nail painter too (polish never stays on my fingernails for more than a few hours). We’ve got some really fun summer colors – I have a purple Sally Hanson one that’s pretty and Gracie picked out some Funky Fingers brights at Five Below yesterday.
(two) Yesterday we went on our first field trip of the school year. I was in need of some time away from the house, and it was just the ticket. (Pictures later in another post.)
(three) While at Five Below, we picked up some squirt guns. I forgot how much fun they could be! Gracie and I filled up 5 of them last night and went outside and attacked Brian while he was mowing the yard. Of course, we squirted each other too! It was great fun – not to mention refreshing!
(four) Our blackberry bush is just filled with berries. I was going to attempt to make jam – and still hope to – but decided to pick a bunch last night and make a blackberry cobbler. The berries were so sweet that the sugar called for in the recipe made the cobbler actually too sweet. These berries are HUGE!
(five) Ice packs. This seems kinda silly, but Ian fell on the stairs this afternoon (hardwood) and cracked his lip open and it swelled up HUGE! Thankfully, we have a nice little Lightning McQueen icepack that he willingly held on his lip for probably an hour – the swelling has gone done (it’s still big!) Bless his little heart!
