"Fab Five" Friday (and GIVEAWAY announcement!)

Laura and Falen at Upward Not Inward are hosting a Friday "Fab Five" linkup, and I'm happy to be joining them today!

This week I am grateful for:
Employment, and time with one of my best friends (which we've worked into our schedules, so we'll be intentional about getting together every week!).  I am also thankful for the time Joshua and I have had to spend together this week, despite busy work schedules.

This week I enjoyed:
Driving to and from work and school!  Thanks to God's goodness and the generosity of my parents and aunt and uncle, Joshua and I now have a car!!  Also, I am loving all my new classes--it's going to be a fantastic semester.

This week I learned:
That getting up early is one of the best things I can do for myself in a day, because it gives me time to do things like reading my Bible (did that every day this week!), blogging (almost every day!), and eating a good breakfast without being rushed to get out the door.  I also learned that I cannot serve in volleyball--need to work on that!

This week I accomplished:
I kept (mostly) on track with the dishes this whole week.  I have a bad habit of leaving dirty supper dishes till the next day and letting them pile up.  I've been pretty good this week at not doing that.  By tomorrow night, I will have accomplished all my housecleaning for this week! :)

I am looking forward to:
Going to see The Hobbit again tonight with my hubby, and the arrival of one of our dearest friends for a five-day visit!  She's staying with us while in town for, technically, a business reunion, but I'm SO excited to see her (it's been over six months)!!!

Finally, I'm really looking forward to hosting my first-ever GIVEAWAY, beginning on Monday!  I'll be giving away THREE copies of the Rekindling Romance eBooklet and eKit from Jason and Jami, the couple behind A Biblical Marriage.  If you're married, this will make a fantastic addition to your Valentine's Day celebrations--get excited!! :)

Linking up with Upward Not Inward, Black Tag Diaries, Lovely Little Whimsy, Loved and Lovely


  1. Looks like you have a lot to be thankful for. :)

    That giveaway sounds perfect, just in time for Valentines Day. :)

  2. What a wonderful week!! We saw the Hobbit already too. We really liked it. :) I'm fairly certain I will be back for that giveaway! That looks fantastic!

    Thank you for linking up with Fab Five Friday! It was the first actual link up, and we are honored that you have a Fab Five post too!

    Have a great weekend, dear! Enjoy your visit with your friend.
