Friday Five.

What a great week it's been- I'm jumping right into my Friday 5 today:

1. Seriously- you guys are the BEST. The messages and love from yesterday were incredible- we feel so loved! It's one thing as you tell your friends and family.. you're generally telling people one by one, or in small groups. But wow- the outpouring from going "public" all at once was truly overwhelming- in a good way. Thank you EVERYONE for all your kind words. Jared and I thrilled... and maybe still slightly terrified ;)

2. Obviously our biggest news kinda' trumps everything but I'm still excited that our new appliances are being delivered today!! We FINALLY bit the bullet and upgraded our ancient appliances with new ones. A fridge with ice/water in the door, a flat-top stove that will cook things evenly and an actual working dishwasher. Hallelujah! Hoping this will motivate me to get back at the meal planning, too.

3. Tonight is our first festive event of the season- Jared's work party! Although I have zero idea what I'm wearing to it yet,  I know it'll be a good time. They always have a lot of fun prizes and casino games with fake money to play. My kinda' gambling!

4.  Our Christmas cards! I went with a new company this year, Photo Affections. I found a deal on Living Social and went for it and I'm super happy with how they turned out. I can only reveal the back of them right now, sorry ;)

5. A free, non-working weekend! Somehow this weekend got here and Jared and I have no commitments Saturday or Sunday which makes me one happy gal. We can play catch-up on a few things, lazy around if we want and you better believe I'm going to start wrapping gifts this weekend! It's always one of my favorite parts each year.

Enjoy your weekend friends!

  6. We need a new stove and dishwasher too. We knew we'd have to buy a new fridge and washer/dryer when buying our new house, but we didn't anticipate the oven and dishwasher being crap. Shoot! Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  7. I'm so excited you'll have new appliances! Especially the new fridge! I'm kind of drooling over the idea of a flat-top stove. We had one at Nanny's and I miss it. Nice choice!!! ;) happy Friday!!!!!!

  20. I can't believe you're gonna have a little Who Dey baby!! and that you just get to go onto the field... seriously... who does that?! Speaking of babies, Sanu's little guy in his Bengals gear... so cute. I can only imagine yours will have a better Bengals wardrobe than I do too!

  21. I'm still just so excited for you! I think your baby is going to come out screaming Go Bengals! And hooray for new appliances! It's amazing how once you get newer appliances you realize how terrible your old ones were. We were shocked by the difference between our old and new washers and dryers. And hooray for no weekend plans! Those are seriously the best!
