Five on Friday

It's been a while since I linked up to the lovely ladies of five on Friday!

Our annual girls trip to Tahoe commences today. Seven years strong in tradition!

I love a good coffee table book and this is one of them
Before it was published I submitted our story here.
Sadly it didn't make publication - however they are now writing "A Letter to My Cat"
you can submit stories for a chance to be in the book here.

If you have read my about me you know I volunteer as a Wish Granter for the Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation. It's an incredible organization to be a part of and this weekend for Miles' wish they are turning San Francisco into Gotham City! Miles' wishes to be a superhero. If I was in town today I would so be cheering him on!
 You can read all about this incredible wish here.

 Someone quickly managed to turn the new ottoman into his new bed.
What can I say I don't like the word no!

I started this little blog almost seven months ago and was okay if only I read it. As a thank you to everyone that reads, offers advice & kind words. I will be hosting my first giveaway!
 My talented friend Heather did all the banners for my wedding and home and I couldn't love her stuff more!  Starting Monday I will be raffling this gorgeous JOY banner!

Hope you have a great weekend as always!
