5 Things

1. This week I was talking with my sister Wendy, we were planning on a day to get together.  She asked what my kids would like for lunch.  I asked Ryder. "We are going to go to Wendy's on Thursday, what would you like for lunch."   He replied: "Chicken nuggets, root beer and a frosty"  When I got done laughing I explained it was the other Wendy's.

2. This is it, one week of summer break left!  We've got our school supply shopping done, some clothes shopping (still need shoes for Alex) and are getting haircuts this weekend.  I really can't believe it is almost here.

3. This week I finally got together with my bestie Lourie!  Actually it was last Friday- but still within a week.   The kids played and we hung out and visited, even made a pizza run just the two of us; don't worry we did bring pizza back and actually fed the kids too.

4. On Saturday we went through the recurring question of "what should we do?"  Eric found a groupon for an Exotic Animal sanctuary in the high desert.   It is a small place that rescues animals that some crazy people tried to have as pets and then abandoned (i.e. lions and tigers!)

5. Eric and I started a new/old show this week.  We started watching Prison Break on Netflix, loving it so far, and can't help but think of my blogging friend Jill- she loved this show and always talked about it and one certain actor :)

What is your Friday 5 this week?


  1. I can't believe you only have one more week of summer break! My son loves the WNC Nature Center. It's basically a zoo with native animals. :) We really need to buy passes since we go fairly frequently.

    1. That sounds like a great place, and yes I figure if I am going to go to a place more than once it is probably worth getting season passes too.

  2. We have 4 more weeks here til school starts. Hard to believe that the summer has passed by so quickly. Where does the time go?

    1. I am so jealous of your 4 weeks! The summer went way too fast, no idea where it went.

  3. YAY for a get together! That's too funny about "Wendys" Thanks for hosting!

    1. Thank you for linking up! Yes, I definitely had a good laugh about the Wendy’s thing

  4. We still have about 5 weeks till back to school, thought preschool did send the bill so I know it's coming soon.
