5 on Friday.

It's Friday - woot woot!
 
Have you had a great week?  Mine's been a little all over the place, challenging mentally (in a good way) and has involved a bit of travel, which I'm always up for!
 
Today's 5 is a bit random - kind of like this week!
 
:)
 
 
1. My favorite small moments of the week.
 




 An evening drive with my handsome husband to feed the horses, a cold screw top Coors Light, our little dog Leo chilling in the back of the Camry, and an order of iced teas from Starbucks for the crew at my office.
 
It's the little things in life.
 
Truly.
 
PS - I am LOVING Starbucks Peach Green Tea Lemonade and Blackberry Mojito Green Tea Lemonades - they are delicious!  Of course, the Passion Tea Lemonade (without sweetener) is pretty darn good too!
 
2. My least favorite thing of the week.
 
 
Our dishwasher water drain line started leaking two weeks ago, and as a result it caused a portion of the linoleum flooring in our kitchen to lift.  I know, major bummer huh - and the frustrating thing is the line isn't even a year old, and didn't even crack at a bend.  Grrrr. 
 
The bubble in the floor isn't super big, but if we have to replace the floor it's a lot of square footage.  After pricing 300 square feet of new floor - I was looking at tile, which is super durable and practical but it is expensive - we realized that it might just make more economical sense to just re-glue the floor for now, if it was possible.   The flooring guy we're using is super popular and busy, and he just had a chance to look at the floor yesterday.  Any repairs would happen next week at the earliest so I've been hand washing our dishes....booo....and ordering a lot of take out so we don't have dishes....haha!  Hopefully he'll get back to us today and tell us he can just glue the floor back down, then I'll replace the water line and we'll be back to normal!
 
Fingers crossed.  :)
 
3. I'm a proud aunt.
 
My sister in law emailed me pictures of our niece and nephew this week, and I love getting to {see} them!   They are growing up so fast, but we are so dang proud of them!
 



 
 
 Jace and Jacobi had their county fair the first week of August, and did really well with their livestock and shooting.  They also started school this month, and have been to a jackpot show in South Dakota.  We just couldn't be prouder of the {big people} they're becoming! 
 
4. More of the fam-damily!
 
 
Look who I got to have dinner with this week?!?

  Since I was in Tualatin for work, my mom and Lindsay came up to Bridgeport and we had dinner at Twigs.  It was delicious, and a lot of fun to visit over a meal together.  And we may have done a bit of shopping too....haha, it's hard to stop the Vial girls from finding good deals on shoes!
 
5. My favorite photo of the week.
 
 
 
I thought I'd just leave you with this - I don't know why, but I just love it.

Happy Friday friends!
 
Keep living the dream!

  1. Hope you enjoy your day off tomorrow, Darcy!

    The Hubby and I spent the weekend with college friends and attend the Alabama concert at the South Dakota State Fair. Fun times!

    Good Luck with your dishwasher. Not fun.

    It is fun to be an aunt. My Sister-in-Laws frequently send us cute kid picts. I love to see youth showing livestock!

    Glad you had a chance to hang out with your Mom and Lindsay. By the looks of you picture I'm guessing there was no laughing or fun going on. lol!

    I like your last photo too. Neat light capture. The calf and irrigation add to the landscape.

    We went to the South Dakota State Fair and saw Alabama. It was amazing. They sound just like they do on the radio and recordings. Lead singer, Randy Owns, is a character. The last time Alabama was in South Dakota was 20 years ago.
