High Five For Friday

My top five thankful moments of the week... 
1.  Cool Off - A little sweet pool time to break up a long hot week.
2. Herb Garden - Our sweet Basil plant is just BEAUTIFUL and FULL of thick, fragrant leaves right now. On Monday we decided to take advantage of this and made two homemade pizzas.  A hot pizza and glass of deep red wine, kinda does something grand to my heart. 
3. Paper Straws - My name is Ashton, and I have a problem with pretty paper straws...please don't tell my husband.  He won't understand why liquid tastes better when using these.
4. Fresh Food - Fresh Figs from my Memaw!  I see a fresh mixed green chicken salad in my future...
5. Family Time - Tanner's little brother is heading back to school this weekend so we had a little goodbye dinner to celebrate him on Thursday. We are praying for a blessed, safe, successful start to his Junior year.

What are your plans for the weekend?  I hope it's a great one!

Linking up with the Lauren Elizabeth Blog today!


  1. I love the straws! Where did you find them? I think it's just a girl thing - drinking from a pretty straw always makes it taste better :)

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks they can make things taste better! I got them from Dandelion Design Studio. The owner is Brittany Phillips - brittany@dandeliondesignstudio.com.

  2. That pizza looks amazing! What a fun week!!
