High Five For Friday

Shut.The.Front.Door. We made it to Friday!  Welcome to the day of the week that promises the next two will be spent away from work.  I heard through the grapevine this Friday may bring a few new faces, so I thought I might invite y'all on a few dates to get to know me a little better...

Date three will come later:)

Now on to this week's 5 thankful moments...

1. Rain - We are in the dead heat of summer here in the ATX, and rain hasn't been on the 7 days forecast in weeks. In fact, I think they have used the same weather forecast for the last month...oh Mark Murray, you have the easiest job.  I digress.  But last night, God blessed us with sheets of rain and bright lighting.  I don't know what it is, but Rain makes me Disneyworld happy.

2.  New Tunes - If you don't like country music you can ignore this one.  I try and branch out, but I still have this sweet genre on 95% of the time...which is probably why I didn't know "The Dougie" was a think before the recent mention in a Blake Shelton song...Whoops. Anyways, this week I've had a few new tunes on repeat.  If you a feeling like some new music, go get: Brett Eldredge, One Mississippi; Luke Bryan, Shut it Down; and The Civil Wars, Dust to Dust.

3.  Searsucker - On Thursday we met our good friends for dinner at a new restaurant in Austin called Searsucker.  The atmosphere was so neat, and the food was wonderful.

4. Lean In - I'm still working on the Captivating bible study, but I also start Lean In this week.  A few coworkers highly recommended in; I have a feeling it will be very insightful.  Have you read it?

5. Family Dinner - Tonight we are going to a going away dinner for Ms. Kailey at Memaws.  Tomorrow she moves to college and I'm afraid I might lose her to all those cowboys....

How was your week?  Anything fun happening this Weekend?


  1. I'm so excited for the Civil Wars new album...except I haven't listened to it yet. Whoops. On my to-do list : ) That restaurant looks so awesome! I hope the food is as good as the decor. And I'll have to look into that BIble study. I'm nearing the end of my current book (One Thousand Gifts - amazing) so I'm definitely in the market.

  2. I used to live in Texas, so I know how much you guys need the rain. Here in North Carolina, we have gotten so much rain, it's ridiculous.

  3. I love the decor of that Searsucker restaurant! Have a fun dinner tonight and a great weekend!

  4. We are getting rain too and it makes me so happy! What a sweet break from the heat! I will have to check out those songs for sure!

  13. I looove the civil wars! Definitely one of my faves. And I'm with you, I listen to country 95% of the time. I love it. One CD that kind of surprised me was Leann Rimes new cd. I like the song Gasoline & Matches and I like the song Spitfire.
