High Five for Friday 8/28

August 28, 2015

Today I am joining the lovely hosts of High Five for Friday to share some highlights from this week. Here we go:



This past week our Xander had some breathing problems and the beginnings of an ear infection, so between breathing treatements and doctor follow ups I didn’t feel as into blogging as normal, but Xander is doing alot better. God is good!




Nevaeh started back to school on Monday but Sunday there was our church sponsored girls pool and pizza party (hubby took the boys to a boys pool and pizza party).



Wednesday was National Dog Day, so of course we celebrated our Frank (n’beans).

Thursday I had the pleasure of watching the LIVE Google Hangout of High Five for Friday hosts (Tiffany, Della, Caitlin and Katie) which I enjoyed (thanks ladies, I enjoyed it). See post here.


In case you missed it I am hosting a Firmoo glasses giveaway (see post here) that you can enter to pick a pair of eye glasses of your choice from this link. Glasses include the frames, standard 1.50 index single vision lenses. Upgraded lenses and add-ons will be charged for an extra fee.With free shipping to the USA, what a deal! So enter today or check out Firmoo more here and be sure to enter below in the Rafflecopter box (some entries can be done daily for extra entries, but as always all entries are better than none for a chance to win).

    A pool party sounds like a great way to end the summer! Glad the little one if feeling better too. Seems like you had your hands full this week and am looking forward to you getting back on your regular blogging routine (although a break is always nice, at least for me! Posting gets to be exhausting when life gets busy lol)
    Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!
