Happy Friday, y'all! It's been a great week, but I'm always happy to have a weekend at home with my hubby. Bring on the weekend!!!

the Sowell life's Friday five...

1) {There's hope for my thumb yet...} We all know that my mom has the green thumb, and I might have gotten a little bit of that gene passed on to me. Basically I'm saying yes I can keep a plant alive, most of the time. I was really worried about this hibiscus plant, but it finally started blooming this week!

2) {Appetizer} We love, LOVE, to grill. And one of our favorite appetizers when we grill is smoked sausage. It's perfect with mustard and bbq sauce. What are your favorite appetizers while grilling?

3) {A little overnight visit from Marsie Belle} This adorable little spoiled rotten dachshund came to see us this week. And we had fun bird and squirrel watching off the back deck. The weather was perfect to just sit and enjoy all the sweet sounds of summer.

4) {A little pampering with mom} The last time mom came to visit we went to get mani and pedi's. So this trip, we decided to enjoy it all over again. Seriously, the way they massage our feet and legs puts me sound to sleep. Not kidding, I fell asleep twice this time. And we all know how much I love red, and dislike pink. So you'll be able to figure out pretty quick which nail polish I chose.

5) {Early birthday dinner} My parents came over and took us out to eat Thursday evening for a little early birthday celebration for me. My birthday is technically next Thursday, but who doesn't love celebrating for a few week? We went to LongHorn Steakhouse and ate so much food. It was delicious!

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!! Enjoy your weekend, y'all! 


  1. I say celebrate your birthday as much as you can!

    I think I might get my nails done at lunch. I just don't have time to do them tonight.

    when something is on the grill, I like to whip up a nice little caprese platter with tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil. One of my favorites!

  2. Fun week with good company! I think it is quite proper to celebrate your birthday for a week! I'm also thinking your birthday is the same day as our anniversary! I hope you have a good weekend. :)

  3. I believe in a birthday week rather than day, so I think you just gotta live it up, girl!

    We never grill. Isn't that sad? I leave that to my parents. But in the new house, we are going to get us a nice grill and I can't wait!

    Have a great weekend, friend!

  4. Your plant looks great! I can't keep anything alive.

    And I am a huge fan of birthday month, so there is nothing wrong with celebrating early!

  5. Oh MB!Does she sleep with her eye open? Haha always looking for snacks!

    Looks like a fun week. Hibiscus looks awesome!

    Happy Birthday week!!

  6. You've got to celebrate your birthday from today until it gets basically until the end of the month ;-)

  7. yum! That sausage looks wonderful!

  8. Joyful week with good company! I believe it is quite proper to commemorate your anniversary for a week! I'm also conceiving your anniversary is the identical day as our anniversary. Both looks looks awesome!
