Who's ready for the weekend? And Father's Day weekend at that!!! We can't wait to celebrate the special men in our lives this weekend, and hope y'all get a chance to do the same, too.

the Sowell life

the Sowell life's Friday five...

1) {Day Lilies} Mom was sweet enough to transplant some of her day lilies from Mississippi to our yard here in Alabama. They started blooming this week, and they are all gorgeous. Beautiful colors, and huge blooms.

2) {Alabama Weather} The weather here has been beautiful. The perfect color blue skies with clouds that look like cotton. However, it's been hot has hades and that means we start "glistening" just getting out of the vehicle. Welcome to our Alabama summer. 

3) {I feel like chicken tonight, like chicken tonight...} And that's exactly what we had. Fried chicken and fresh veggies. What could be better, right? Seriously, nothing makes a southern girl happier than a good dose of fried chicken.

4) {Reading} I've been catching up on my reading, and finally finished a book I started Mother's Day weekend, Sparkling Green Earrings. (Note, I finished it in three days, just didn't have three straight days to read it at the same time.) LOVED it, and I highly recommend any moms in waiting, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, cousins.... READ it. You'll love it!!

5) {Reality TV} It just might be our favorite TV shows of all time. We're excited that Big Brother is starting in a few weeks, and so happy to see some of our favorite summer reality shows back on. And yes, we're even watching The Bachelorette. The Mr might not admit to watching it with me, but he does. And just so everyone knows (if you watch the show) I'm hoping she picks BrydenAnd seriously hoping she gives Ben the boot, soon. Cute couple, right?

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! And Happy Father's Day!
