Five on Friday {Life Currently}

Another Week Down! And this weekend is Mother’s Day! Yay!
 Cheers to all you awesome moms & mommy’s to be!

Time for a little Friday Fun with the girls!

I am linking-up with AprilChristinaNatasha, & Darci for Five on Friday!

Summer Reading List

So I’ve started thinking about the books I want on my summer reading list & have bought two so far. I jumped on the blogger bandwagon with The Nesting Place & Bread & Wine! But I am also considering Gray Areas by Mike Glenn. Has anyone read that? Wednesday Shauna Niequist posted this Mother’s Day Book List & can’t wait to add some more books to my Summer Collection.

What’s on your list this summer?

Earth Fare

Just this week Earth Fare opened about a block away from my house. I ran in the day it open & to say it was a madhouse was an understatement. I gathered that it was a mix of Whole Foods & Trader Joes….which I am SUPER pumped about.

Do any of y’all shop at Earth Fare? If so, what should I be putting on my list to try?!

This Week

I really just loved this week, y’all! The weather was warmer, we celebrated our anniversary, my job has picked back up, & I was able to share some of my favorite things on the blog!

Here are a few highlights…

Cinco de Mayo (aka Anniversary) Celebration!

Selfies with the Axe man at Luke’s Church Softball Game

Planters were rolling this week in Northern Indiana, Y’all! Bring on the corn!

Visit the recap here!

Make this frosting THIS weekend!! 

Cara Box Exchange 

This Spring I participated in my first ever Cara Box Exchange. Started by Wifessionals, this exchange is between women from all over the country. We were paired back in March & spent a few months getting to know our partners. This last week we were supposed to send a package full of our favorite things from our hometowns. I loved getting all my goodies from my partner, Corinne. If you want to find out more, go here

Mother’s Day

Last but not least…this weekend we celebrate those women in our lives that have done everything for us & then some…Our Mommas! I found these sweet Printables on Pinterest this week & they are a must share.

Check them out on Full of Great Ideas Blog!


Make sure and hug your momma’s this weekend! Enjoy your family’s off to Tennessee for me!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Leave me a comment so I can visit you too!

Frankly my dear…Happy Mother’s Day!!

    What a great week! We have an Earth Fare about 20 minutes away, but it's near a track that I like to walk on with my friend. I think their little restaurant area is great and the food is delicious. I was able to find a cold Coca Cola made with real sugar (not the healthiest) there for my husband, which are his favorite! They also had some interesting marinades and dips that I would get for parties!

    I'm always looking for new book selections so you'll have to do a review when you finish the books on your list so I know if I should add them to mine!
