We Made It!

Hey Everyone! Happy Friday! I hope you are enjoying it with your favorite autumn treat! It's been a long week for me, and I'm very much looking forward to a more relaxing one next week.
Anyways, I'm too tired to vlog today, so I'm just going to do a little recap of the week, mainly why I wasn't very present on the blog, in a Hi Five for Friday way!
During our vacation in Maine, last year
1. This week my youngest brother, Peter, was home on fall break from college! I hadn't seen him since August, so it's been fun to have him home!

2. Sunday night we busted out the fire pit and sat around for a couple hours chatting and roasting marshmallows! It was a glorious fall evening!

3. It's been really fun making connections and friendships with other bloggers through swaps. I participated in the Falling into Fall swap, and had a great time getting to know Ashley. I also am doing my first Cara Swap, and I've loved becoming friends with Tori and Christina!

4. Wednesday night we were hoping to get tickets to Les Miserables, playing at our community playhouse, but they were all sold out. So, instead, we ordered Thai food and played games as a family. It was the first time in a while where our family of 5 was all together, alone, in one place! It was a fantastic night of laughing, and having FUN!
5. Sunday morning after church our family went to a fun little diner in a town right across the river, Council Bluffs, called Dixie Quicks. It had actually been featured on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives show! It was a very whimsical and fun restaurant, and the food was great too!

How was your week? As far as blogging goes, I'm having a bit of a writer's block :(. Trying to get some post scheduled for next week! I'm linking up with all these lovely people:
