Fridays Fave Five - June 16th

Oh - another busy busy week! When does summer begin?Here's my Fave Five of the week - if you'd like to see more Fave Fives, go to Living To Tell the Story, for lots more!

1. Lots of new recipes this week = Good eatin'! Grilled fajitas, gazpacho, blackberry cobbler... and some old favorites, too! Black bean enchiladas... Yum.

2. A very nice Confirmation service last weekend - I'm so lucky to work with such great kids!

3. Spending time with my sister, Kayla. She and her dog, Hershey, stayed with us for about a week while my parents were out of town.

4. Getting to spend a day with my goddaughter, Elly. What a sweetie pie!

5. Having the whole family together for dinner last night - even if it was quick! My sister, Emily, and her husband, Karlin, were in town just for a couple of hours on a layover (on their way to Alaska!). The only person missing was little Miss Finley!

Things I am thankful for today:

1. A nap on the couch after a sleepless night.
2. A cuddly dog.
3. Working on my final sermon for Faith Church - and feeling good about my message to them.
4. Fresh avocado.
5. Stella's Fish Cafe in Uptown - a GREAT patio overlooking Minneapolis! (Even when it starts to rain... Ha ha ha.)
6. Playing in quirky shops - smelling every single candle and sitting on all the weird, funky, furniture!
7. Kitchen gadget stores - LOVE them. The Kitchen Window.
8. Weird flavored chocolate bars - especially one made with dark chocolate, ginger, and wasabi. Yum. Vosges Chocolates.
9. Catching up on my Bible reading.
10. A Father's Day card for my hubby from our goddaughter. So cute!

Ah, we should go to a funky shop together! I love smelling candles...I think it may be a slight addiction.

Spending time with family is always special. Sounds like you had a great week!

I love, love, love blackberries, served any way at all! How wonderful that you have had such nice visits with your family this week. And avocados (or it is avocadoes?)...what can I say...I'm from California and we put them on just about anything!
