Thanks for showing up, Friday.... since you're here, I feel that this ecard is in order...

the Sowell life's Friday five...

1) {MarBelle Comes To Visit} Well, actually her Shannie and Papa came too, but you know it's always all about Miss MB! Monday night we went to Jim N Nick's for dinner, and she had to come, too. She sits in a chair with her blanket and does her thing... people watch! Of course when we got home, she started begging for jelly beans. And who can say NO to a cute face like hers or to that sweet whine?

2) {Family, Food, Fun} Our visit with MarBelle, Shannie and Papa was a quick one. Dad dropped off mom and MB at our house Monday before he headed to Chattanooga, and then he picked them up on Tuesday evening before heading back to Mississippi. We told MB that Papa was coming and she kept staring out the door looking for him. The Mr and I cooked up dinner before they left, and got some more loving from my girl.

3) {CUPCAKES} We love celebrating birthdays. And Wednesday was one of our employee's birthdays. So we had Blue Eyed Daisy cupcakes from Atlanta. The flavors were Pina Colada, Lemon, Red Velvet, and Chocolate Ganache. I, of course, had a red velvet, and it was DIVINE!

4) {BBQ} Every once in a while, our company will cater in food for us, and yesterday we had Full Moon BBQ, and it was so good. Sometimes we all just need to sit back, relax, and enjoy each other's company. It's funny how you can see all the stress just start to melt away when it happens. 

5) {Dead/Dry Skin} Okay, if you've read any of my posts this week, you probably already know that I got burntt (the Mr added the extra t because he said I'm extra burnt). So I've already started peeling. And it's gross. Off to the store I went to get some exfoliator for my face and body. However, the Mr thinks it's fun to peel the skin off me. I think he is enjoying torturing me. However, by the way my peeling skin feels underneath... I'd say I'm probably going to peel again. =(

Now, who's ready to link up?!! Thanks for stopping by, linking up, sharing the link up on your blog and on twitter! I appreciate y'all spreading the word more than you'll ever know!!
