Five on Friday!

Good morning to all!! 
I just want to first say how much I have loved the blogging community. There are so many amazing and encouraging women that I have "met" through blogging and I feel so blessed and thankful for that! 

Even though it is still not very warm here in the Midwest I am still excited that it is officially spring! Heard some birds chirping this morning and that just made me giddy inside! 

I found this adorable print on Pinterest and I am exciting to write it on our chalkboard at home!

Last weekend the hubs and I went back to my parents house for the weekend. We hadn't been there since Christmas and were anxious to get back there. We had a really relaxing enjoyable weekend. On Saturday night we went to a restaurant in town called Teluwut. It is in an old bank so they still have the safe from the bank days in it. For the first time ever, we were seated in the safe! We had a great time with my parents and our family friends!

On Monday, our community group split guys and girls. The guys usually end up going to a bar somewhere in town and watching sports and talking. The girls usually stay at someones house and do crafts or watch a movie. Well this week we went to Holly's house and ate LOTS of yummy food, chatted and watched the movie, The Help. I had never seen it and oh my goodness! It is a amazing and adorable! What a great story! I love having such a great church community. We have our community group on Monday nights but once every month we have a girls/guys night. It is so fun to be able to spend time together and enjoy the things that we love! 

YUM! Chocolate fondue bar and wine!

Last night we had our date night at home and I made a honey pork roast, homemade mashed potatoes and veggies! I am still getting used to cooking and trying new recipes so this was a really big win for me! Love feeding my sweet man well. We also watched a lot of basketball last night. March madness is a pretty big deal in our house and we have a bet to see who has the best bracket. If I win, Jordan will watch four episodes of One Tree Hill with me in a row! Any OTH lovers out there? It was my favorite show in high school. He hasn't decided what I will get to do if he wins. Probably involving pizza and a superhero movie. I love marriage and the fun little competitions we sometimes have. Makes life fun and playful!
