5 on Friday

It’s Friday again!!  I’m linking up with Darci at The Good Life
Here’s my random 5 this week…
#1.  I’m SUPER excited about busting my crockpot out again.  I think I used it at least 3 times so far this week!

#2.  On my to-do list is read this book, Gone Girl.  They are filming the movie right now in Cape Girardeau, MO!!  Cape Girardeau is the closest big town to where I grew up.  (It’s where we went to the mall and grocery store.  It’s also where Tab and I got married!)  So exciting!!!  Apparently, the setting of the book is in a Missouri town by the river.  Perfect place to be filming!  

Hope Whitney doesn’t mind that I’m sharing this!!!  I was sitting in the lobby of gymnastics yesterday and got this picture from my cousin, Whitney???  She ran into Ben Affleck!!!  He and Tyler Perry are filming in Cape Girardeau!  So fun!!
 #3.  Tab just found out he has another game in Hawaii this year!!!  Guess we’ll get to see it again soon!  My sweet mom has already agreed to hold down the fort.  Thank you, Mom!!
#4.  See that picture?  Whew!  This was us last year.  I was big pregnant!!  I’m looking forward to seeing Hawaii and NOT being pregnant this time!!
#5.  Ebby Lee received her SUPER cute pumpkin headband in the mail from Honey Pie Accessories.  It is SO cute!!  (You can’t see much in the picture.)  She couldn’t wait to wear it, so she wore it to school yesterday.  I LOVE it!!  Thanks, Elaine!!

If you haven’t entered the GIVEAWAY for a super cute headband from Honey Pie Accessories, do it NOW!!  It ends tonight and I’ll be drawing for a winner tomorrow!!  Good luck!!

    First, I'd be so excited to run into Ben Affleck- swoon! Second, Hawaii!!! I'm jealous! One of our bowl options at TU is Hawaii, and I told DJ we will never leave TU until we go to that bowl. He went to Hawaii when we were at La Tech and I have no idea why that was not the wives trip that year! Finally, so glad you got your headband!!! Hope Ebby Lee loves it!

    Gone Girl was really good. Excited to see the movie and even more so now know that Ben Affleck is in it!!! I like that it takes place in Missouri — I'm a Missouri girl too 🙂

    I've read a few of your posts now and see that we have a lot in common…both former 3rd grade teachers, live in M town, my hubby officiates college basketball as his second job (you must know how to do the single mom deal during season) :), our kids go to same child care, and we have the same taste in things (from what I've read on here). I'm the one that said hello to you and Shay a while back at FBLC. 🙂 Anyways, I like your blog!
