Friday Five Favs

Despite the fact that this week was extremely difficult I have much to be thankful for. My top five favorite things from the past week include:

1. My friends. Work has been very stressful of late as I've had to push to get some projects done by certain deadlines. This has meant some days I've had to work 6-8 hours and all around taking care of my 2 1/2 year old daughter. At the point when I thought I was going to lose my mind a friend offered to take my daughter for a day so I could have some solid alone time to concentrate and plow through the paperwork that was threatening to bury me alive. Wow did it made such a difference! I got so much done and I had such a happier outlook on life in general. Meanwhile my daughter had a fun time playing with other children. True friends are truly a blessing.

2. Listening to the rain. Generally I prefer sunshine to rain, but every so often I do enjoy waking up or going to sleep to the sound of rain falling. It's rather relaxing. We had several days of sunshine followed by a couple days of rain. One night I had the luxury to lay in bed and listen to the pitter patter of the rain.

3. Babysitters. It's been a while since my husband and I were able to have a date night. We try for once a month, but that doesn't always happen. Thanks to one of our fantastic babysitters we got a last minute date night out. And let me tell you -- a night out together without taming a toddler does wonders for my morale and for my marriage. Bless my babysitter!

4. A new dress. I love when you find that perfect item. It fits like a dream, it makes you look fantastic AND it's on clearance!

5. Song of the Week: Lead Me To the Cross (Chris and Conrad). Enjoy!

I love everything on your list!

Friends, falling asleep to rain (something I get to do with some frequency here in Oregon!), good babysitters, awesome clothes finds, and that song!

A hearty AMEN to all of it!

Hope you have a great weekend.
