Friday Fave Five - July 24th

On Fridays, I take a moment - along with Susanne at Living To Tell the Story - to look back over the week and be thankful for all the good things in life! Here's five of my favorite things from this week:

1. Dad's birthday was last weekend. The hubby and I had my parents over for a fun festive dinner, complete with decorations, silly prizes, yummy food, and tirimisu with candles on top! A very fun evening to celebrate Dad!
(I love this picture of Dad - it makes me giggle everytime!)
2. On Monday night, the hubby and I decided to try making mussels for dinner with a coconut curry lime broth - Yum-a-roo! We will be doing that again, for sure!3. The game on Facebook that I've been playing all week - your "friends" on Facebook are invited to leave a quick note of one of their favorite memories of you. My friends on Facebooks range from childhood friends, family friends, high school, college, former youth group kids, current youth group kids, and new friends! It's been a really fun look back at some fun memories! I did a post about it here, if you'd like to do the "experiment" too - you'll be surprised at what you, and others, remember!

4. My coffee date with Jill. We were having so much fun talking about all kinds of things that pretty soon the coffee shop was closing... Yikes! So fun.

5. Last night, I got home from work at 8:15pm, and the hubby and I headed to a nearby town to listen to one of our favorite local bands (a Van Morrison cover band). A great end to my work week - sitting outside, great music, kettle corn and the hubby. Life is good.

Things I am thankful for today:

1. Spontaneous nights out.
2. Talking to my sister, Emily, on the phone today.
3. The dog being so cute and cuddly in the car.
4. Driving through beautiful WI.
5. Setting up camp - a beautiful site, and an easy set-up!
6. Chicken, spinach, feta burgers for dinner. Yum.
7. The hubby bought me Baked BBQ Lays. (I NEVER eat chips - yummy!)
8. Bringing comfy, warm, clothes for camping - keeping things simple.
9. A starry sky!
10. No critter invasion at the campsite!

I like that picture of your dad, too! The coffee date with your friend and outdoor concert with hubby sound great!

It does sound like life is good for you! Closing down a coffee shop, a night off listening to music, sounds like a good life.
