5 Things Friday!

Happy Friday!

I'm linking up with Clare today for
1. My boy got his drivers license. He bought a big ol' loud, redneck truck that needs a paint job- which he loves.
Watching him drive away by himself for the first time was hard. He's my baby boy! I married his Dad when he was 6, so I've been in his life for more than half of it. Time goes by so fast...

2. Fresh fruit!
Frozen mango makes the BEST snack.
I have been eating too much watermelon lately. Like, I could finish one off in 2 days.
Pretty sure I could be a Fruitarian. Well, a Fruitarian who also eats ice cream.
*I learned the hard way, do not eat huge servings of watermelon in one sitting. Oh dear lord, it can cause some serious damage to your GI system, which creates a lot of pain.You're welcome.*

3. I was pretty excited to be mentioned by the Hungry Runner Girl!
4. What I've been doing lately.
Freezing squash, and canning pickles. I need to keep trying with the pickles though, I went them crispy, not soft. 
5. I recently joined Gwynnie Bee. It is a clothing rental service catering to women size 10-32. I'll talk more about it later, but I love it!
If I like the dress, I can keep it as long as I want, and then send it back and they send me another one. 

 As you can see, I've had some good ones, some not so good.
Have a lovely weekend, my friends!



  1. WHAT?!?!?!? I need to know more about this dress place!!!!!
    I have to admit - I fan girled out for you when I saw Hungry Runner Girl comment on your IG pic :)

  2. Pickles. Yum. Yum. Yum. :) And I know how it feels when you get your license. I have a certain affinity for those kind of old redneck looking trucks.

  3. Good to know about watermelon because I love love love it! Luckily I haven't experienced gi stress related to it yet.

  4. How cool that you can try a dress, keep it and return when you want.

  5. I can also eat obscene amount of watermelon. It makes me both love and hate this time of year. :)

  6. I love your son's truck!! Woo hoo! I'm also VERY impressed at your freezing/canning abilities; I haven't done that since I used to stay with my grandmother (who died last year) when I was a kid.
