Friday Five — link up #34

I think it's best to describe this post as the last weekend without college football for the year! #hailstate

the Sowell life

the Sowell life's Friday five...

1) {HEAT WAVE} Yeah, it's been a little warm outside the past few days, but I'm pretty sure it's been hotter in our house over the past day and a half. Wednesday night, I woke up sweating and I woke up the Mr, and he said you're always complaining about it being hot. So he got up to see what the thermostat was on... it was set to 71, but it was 75 degrees. Yep... our air conditioner was not working! Thankfully, our air was fixed this morning and it's beginning to cool off. This would be why this post is late today... you know when you're too hot, yep, you just don't feel like doing anything. And that includes blogging my friends!

2) {MB's back} Our girl came back to visit us this week, and she's been enjoying lots of belly rubs and car rides around town. Of course, she is like me — she didn't like the heat wave in our house. Poor thing was hot and miserable, too.

3) {Happy Birthday Mom} Wednesday was my mom's birthday. We celebrated with salads from O'Charleys to make up for the delicious ice cream cake from DQ for dessert. And if you haven't enjoying a little slice of that heaven... do so immediately!

4) {Candy Corn} The first official bag of candy corn was purchased and is in our home. I've yet to have any, but the Mr has already opened the bag. This marks the unofficial start of Fall for us. 

5) {New treats} Mom and I went to Sams to get some things for the house, and we came across these. Decided to give them a try, and well, we're hooked. They are delicious, and do not have to be kept in the fridge.

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!
