Y'all, it's Friday and the sun is shining and I'm off work for three nights in a row. It's like the best day ever. You know Fridays are my favorite days for random posts, so here I am with a Friday Five, filled with all the good things that happened this week. I wish I could use emojis to show y'all my joy today!
one. Andrew and I celebrated our first anniversary this past Sunday and it was pretty much the best day ever. I worked the night before and got off at 7, then came home to a home-cooked breakfast and flowers. That man knows the way to my heart! We got dressed up for dinner that night and toasted to a year of marriage--they say the first year is the hardest, but it's been a year full of blessings for us. I hope God gives us 99 more just like this one. (Pardon the iPhone picture, I was too chicken to pull out my DSLR at dinner.) Oh, and year-old wedding cake? Pretty terrible. But year-old champagne made up for that. Cheers!
two. My cute husband loves a project. He's happiest when he's working with his hands or holding a tool, making a mess all over the garage. I love the way his engineering mind works. He worked on a "secret" gift for me for a couple of days and he was so excited about it, and I couldn't wait to see what he had up his sleeve. He did some research and perfected transferring photos to wood, then made me the sweetest thing--a wood transfer photo with one of our engagement shots. I love that his hands created this for me!
three. Have you seen this video from the cutest sister duo ever? I was already obsessed with them (and this song) to begin with, but now this video has totally sealed the deal. Can't stop listening to it. Seriously, click on the link and go watch it and make your day infinitely better in a matter of minutes.
four. The traditional first anniversary gift is paper, so when I saw this cute little One Line a Day journal, I grabbed it, knowing Andrew and I would love doing this together. (Or rather, I'd love making him do it with me, but whatever.) I'm all about 2015 being a year to treasure the little moments as well as the big, so this one line a day is going to be such a fantastic way for us to document the daily joys and memories and little things in life we'd probably otherwise forget. It's waiting for 5 years of life to fill its pages and I'm a little excited to start.
five. I signed up for Weight Watchers on Monday. That's another post for another day that's coming soon, but my newest little obsession came in the mail two nights ago and I can't get enough of it already. My Fitbit. I polled some friends on Facebook and everyone recommended it, and so far, it's living up to its expectations! I love the accountability it gives me--I can already tell I'm more conscious about being active and getting my steps in for the day. It's like a challenge against myself. I have a feeling this is the start of something great in my life--time for a healthier me!
six. Tricked ya, you get an extra one today, just because I want to share this with y'all! That Ann Voskamp, she knows what she's talking about. I've felt like a big screw up lately but even in my weakness, He is strong. Even in the middle of my mess, His grace covers it and redeems me. I hope you're reading our #heartofEphesians Bible study, because that's just what Paul is talking about right now. Come join us!
Happy Friday, friends! Fill this weekend with lots of joy and laughter. xoxo
I'm linking up for the first time with Karli from September Farm today for Oh Hey, Friday!
