Friday Five link up #21

Friday, May 24, 2013

What is it about the week before vacation? The days seem to last twice as long, but I'm proud to say that my countdown is now hours and minutes, no longer days! Whoop Whoop!!


the Sowell life

the Sowell life's Friday five...

1) {The Mr's Spaghetti} So I told y'all a few weeks ago that the Mr was going cook me his version of the spaghetti that he use to make before he met me. And Monday night, I came home to dinner cooked and being served. I'll have to admit, it wasn't that bad. He said he was a little rusty with it, and forgot some of the spices he normally puts in the sauce, but I'm excited to let him make it again. And did I mention how wonderful it was coming home from a long Monday to dinner being ready, without me cooking it! #amazeballs

2) {McDonald's Hot Fudge Sundae Fail} If you follow me on instagram, you'll probably already know that when I went through the drive thru to pick up lunch earlier this week, and the lady offered me a free hot fudge sundae. The Mr was pretty excited because he loves ice cream sundaes. However, he said the chocolate is now bitter, and not what it use to be. No wonder it was free. It's safe to say we won't be having anymore ice cream sundae's from Mickey D's!

3) {Marsie Belle Visits Bham} We had our girl for a few days this week, and we enjoying sitting outside watching the birds, she chased a few squirrels, and even went riding. We love it when she comes to visit, and can't wait til she's back again.

4) {Ice Cream Truck} We have an ice cream truck that comes through our neighborhood a couple of times a week. And I finally got to see it Wednesday night. We'll be stopping him soon for some yummy ice cream. #themrlovestheicecream

5) {Digging The New Glasses} Y'all know how much we love McAlister's Deli. And we went to get our weekly fix, and found out they have new glasses. I'm talking plastic cups that you can wash and reuse. So you know what that means... the Sowell's will soon have a new set of everyday glasses. LOL #kidding #butyouknowwewillhaveafewhundredsoon 

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!!
