Friday Fill-Ins

Time for this week's Friday Fill-In! I can't believe it is ALREADY Friday! My week has flown by - how about yours? And I'm really, really ready for a long, holiday weekend! Starting my Friday morning with a trip to the dentist is not my idea of a good start to the weekend, though! Fortunately, I don't have to go often.

1. Watermelon -- the best food to take on a picnic.
2. Summer is great - but when it ends, I am more than ready for fall!
3. I can't wear flip flops (the whole strap-between-my-toes drives me nuts!).
4. To love someone is to care for them in physical, practical, hands-on ways.
5. The walk from my old dorm freshman year to my 8:30am music class was a long hike.
6. When I crave food, it's usually something crunchy and salty.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to celebrating my mom's birthday and my husband's birthday, tomorrow my plans include absolutely nothing(!) and Sunday, I want to win when I play in a poker tournament! :)

Friday Fill-Ins

1. Quinn's laughter never fails to make me smile. It's contagious!

2. I'm looking forward to the end of the school year and start of our summer activities! We'll be busy - that's for sure!

3. Dave Ramsey on the radio, Lady GaGA on my ipod . . . is what I'm listening to right now.

4. Potato salad must have nothing in it! Really, I just don't like it no matter how it's made!

5. Pizza Hut pizza was the best thing I ate today.

6. Today was productive and uneventful. (That's a good thing!) :)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching our kids' drama performance , tomorrow my plans include hanging out with my good friend, Joy (dinner, scrapbooking, talking, and just having fun together!) and Sunday, I want to play games with my family and digi scrapbook!
