Five On Friday ... The 13th!

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

Friday the 13th! Are you superstitious?!

I am. Especially about the following:

1) Exit out of the same door you walked in through, or else bad luck.
2) Don't let anyone sweep under your feet; means you won't get married.
3) Never walk under a ladder.

We like black cats in my family though; no superstition there.

Apparently it was National Grilled Cheese Day yesterday? Well, Charlotte and I didn't need to verify that before we decided to partake in it!

My tried, tested and true combo for a good grilled cheese is:
1) Sarah Lee Artesano bread (we're obsessed, it's so soft)
2) Duke's mayo spread on each outer layer of bread (instead of using butter or cooking spray for it)
3) Havarti cheese, two slices, gives the perfect melty stretchy cheesy inside!

My newest nail polish obsession (gel) is I'm Gown For Anything by OPI! It has the faintest lavender tone and is just so lovely.

I received some of the prettiest happy flowers this week. The azaleas are actually from my friend Nina's beautiful yard! And the tulips came from my friend Christine in Texas. Walking into my kitchen and seeing these makes me smile so big!

Brave Charlotte had her first anesthesia procedure on Wednesday for an MRI. Luckily, we got the results yesterday and they were perfectly fine! She sure was a trooper and we are just so, so relieved to have that behind us. This coming Wednesday is her rescheduled strabismus (eye) surgery, and I sort of feel like we've got the anesthesia process (mostly?) down pat. We are so ready to move onward and upward! Thank you all for your sweet words, prayers, and virtual hugs!



PS ... I'll let her share all the photos and news, but I HAVE A NEW NEPHEW! My sister Laura had a wonderful delivery yesterday afternoon and we are just so excited to meet him!

That's it for today! Hope you have a lovely weekend -- linking tools still not working (Linkytools is starting to be on my s___list) so please do place your blog link in the comments below!

  23. So glad to hear her MRI went well. I’ve been reading your blog for a while and have never commented but I have two boys who were late walkers. My older one was 21 months and the other one was at 22 months. They both were low toned (hypotonia) so it took many months of physical therapy to get them to where they needed to be and we all just went crazy when they started walking! I just wanted to offer some encouragement that it can be a long road but it will be so worth the wait once she’s toddling around. Many prayers for Charlotte’s eye surgery next week.
