Fab Friday

So I'm going to try and do this as many Friday's as I can remember! I love that it's looking at the positives in life, as sometimes with all the stress and awful stuff that comes along with being a grown-up can be overwhelming, it's nice to remember the little, positive moments. So here it goes, my fabulous moments from this week!


  • I got to spend some with one of my very best friends, Katie, before she officially moved back home. She's one of my very first friends I made after I moved here from California and I couldn't have asked for a better partner in crime! She's also the first friend that the Army has moved away from me. Super sad face, She has an adorable little girl named Tatum who is always cracking me up! I am sad Tatum couldn't make it our on this trip, but it was nice to be able to have one last grown-up hoorah with Katie! I know that's it's not "goodbye," it's an "I'll see you later." (But I'm still pretty sad over it.)
  •  My husband sent me music! He recorded himself playing guitar and singing. I mentioned this before, but I love hearing him sing, even though he doesn't think he sounds very good. I think he sounds fantastic! Although he's catching on. He made me promise not to post it anywhere. I guess he knows me too well.
  • I got my new camera in the mail! I am so excited. I got a pink Cannon Elph. It's a pretty basic and small point and shoot camera, but it's perfect for me. It also shoots HD movies, so maybe I can get onto the YouTube train here soon.
  • One more thing! I've been having more ideas for book writing. Aren't you excited? I am! Now if I can actually sit down and crank some words out, it will be even more fab!



  1. Hi! I'm popping over from Laura's blog.. You have the cutest blog! :)
    Yay for hanging out with friends. I've had lots of friends come and go due to the Army (my husband left the army two years ago) and it's sad but really nice when we get to stay in contact.

    Have a great weekend

    Hi! I'm visiting from the Fab Friday link-up. (I tried to post a moment ago so I'm sorry if my post duplicates!)
    Hooray for being able to visit with your friend, and how sweet of your husband to send you the recording of him singing and playing.♥ Adorable.

    HI! Just found your blog through Laura's link up! It sounds like you had an awesome week. My husband's military career moved us half way across the country a few years ago so I definitely know how important it is to spend what little time you can with friends and family. Glad you got to spend a little time with your friend before she left.

  4. Hi, I'm visiting from the Fab Friday link up. Love your blog :) What a lot of fabulous goodness you've shared. I can relate- I love finding the time for book writing myself, so YAY for you! Happy Friday :)

  5. Time with friends and writing are always great things, in my book. :) Thanks for linking up!

  6. Yes they are! Thanks for hosting. :)

  7. Hey Jessica! Thanks! :)
    It's definitely a new thing for me but something I have a ton of people supporting me with, so it should be a good journey!

  8. Hey Amber! Welcome! :) Yes, The Army is something we're used to but most of the people who come to the post we're at end up staying a long time. So it's been weird to say goodbye to someone. I've been spoiled with good friends for more than a year! :)

  9. Hey Angela! You're good. No double posts on my end. :)
    Hope your Friday was just a fab!

  10. Thanks Liane! :) Yes it's a new experience to say goodbye to friends. But we're going to Skype a lot so that should make up for it!
