Friday's Fave Five 11/8/17

Fridays are a time to look back on the week and share our blessings.
If you want to join in or check out the other participants pop over to our host Suzanne's blog at Living to Tell the Story

Here are mine for the week: 

1) Progress on the diet.  No pics this week but the scales are showing it's working!  Only a few pounds lost but going in the right direction.

2)  Finally my hubby has chosen a new mattress.  He hasn't been happy with the one we have for some time.  He says it's too firm.  I'm happy with it but as I'm easier to please I was happy to go with one he felt would suit him better.  He has been moaning about it for ages but this week he actually did something about it.  He spent hours in a nearby bed shop before narrowing the choice down to two.  At that point I joined him and we agreed on one which will be delivered next week.  We have a 40 night return guarantee on it but hopefully it will give him a good nights sleep!

3) Lunch with 4 of my sister-in-laws on Friday.  We were planning for our upcoming family holiday.  A glass of wine helps with planning right?

4) A successful shopping trip for bits and pieces needed for birthdays/anniversaries coming up.  My son and his wife celebrate their first wedding anniversary on Sunday.  That year has flown by.
and of course my week wouldn't be complete without
5) Nathan time.

They made it over to us for the first time since he was born and my best friend was able to join us.  She has been wanting to see Nathan so much so this week it all worked out.

Have a great weekend all.


  1. Nathan is adorable!! Congrats on the weight loss. I'm working on it too. A glass of wine always helps!!

    1. Thanks Terri. I think so too but I'm probably a bit biased lol.

  2. Hurray on a new mattress. Sleeping on the right one is pivotal for a good night's sleep. I hope your husband finds that this one is the ONE.

    Congrats on the weight loss. You are right, even a pound or two is celebration worthy.

    How great to have success with your shopping. Getting the right gift is such a satisfaction.

    Getting grand child time is such a blessing and privilege. I love seeing the photos of your Nathan. I will see my grands this coming weekend.

    Have a great week, Wendy.

  3. There is nothing quite like a good night's sleep on a mattress that works well for both of you! Good deal that you have 40 days to make sure it is a comfortable as you anticipated.

    Good for you for sticking with your diet and continuing to lose weight. It's all those weeks of a pound or two loss that adds up over time to help meet our goals.

    Nathan looks so cute! Enjoy every minute you can spend with him.

    Hope you have a very special week, Wendy.

  4. It is so wonderful to see those scales going in the right direction... best wishes with that... and your grand son is adorable.. treasure every moment!

  5. What a cutie that Nathan is! Sounds like your hard work is paying off in the diet department. A family trip sounds fun...happy planning

  6. Nathan is so adorable! I just want to pinch those little cheeks!
    I agree, a little wine helps with planning.
