Here's a look back at our week for today's edition of the #fridayfive!

the Sowell life

the Sowell life's Friday five... 

1) {Advice Posts} Let me first say that I'm so thankful for the advice we have been getting from y'all over the past few weeks. Y'all are a wealth of knowledge, and even though most everyone has a different answer or piece of advice to give, I'm so grateful for them. Here's why: I know that when we get home from the hospital, I'm going to have to figure things out that work best for us. And if something isn't working, I can come back to those posts and read the advice that y'all gave. The best part is I'm getting advice from real people who have actually recently been through all of it. And, that means y'all are so much better than reading a book that someone wrote who I have no clue who they are, etc. I'm not sure what the next topic will be, but I know I can count on y'all to give me lots of options!

2) {God's Air Conditioner} This happened this week, and I'm loving the colder weather. I just hope it stays for a long time. I'm enjoying not sweating constantly!

3) {A Good Report} AC and I both got a good report at the Dr. on Wednesday afternoon. My blood pressure was great, and her heartbeat was great. And we've officially signed up for our childbirth class, CPR class and breastfeeding class. After Christmas we will be extremely busy and hopefully learning a lot!

4) {A Mexican Date} The Mr and I went to celebrate a great appointment with Mexican food. And, it was delicious! 

5) {Photography} Y'all probably saw my post on Tuesday with the photos I took of the Kemp family. Well, I'm excited to have two cute little girls coming tomorrow to photography them for Christmas. I can't wait to take them and edit to show y'all!

Now, who's ready to link up?!! I appreciate y'all spreading the word more than you'll ever know!! Please stop by and visit with the other bloggers who link up. It's a great way to find new bloggers to follow! And who doesn't love comments, right? =) Enjoy your weekend, y'all! 


  1. I'm so glad you guys had a great appointment!! That's wonderful. You are looking great, by the way.

    Girl, I know what you mean with the sweating- I had Nicky at the end of July. Boy howdy, I wish I had had some cool weather during that part of my pregnancy. Enjoy! I am loving the cooler weather too.

    I'm so excited about your photography ventures! I really want to get better at editing photos.

    Have a great weekend!~

  2. Glad to hear all is going well with the pregnancy. And yes, can you believe how cold it got this week!! I wasn't ready for that just yet!

  3. Yay for a good appointment. And MORE YAY for a lovely Mexican fiesta after. Love that pic of you guys!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. So happy for a good report! That's awesome! ANd YAY for the classes. I made Hubs do an all day Saturday version... not sure he had a blast! HAhaha I love that you are getting photography practice before Miss Avery! I wish I had learned my skills earlier and not when she was 2!

    Have a great weekend! Keep enjoying this time just the two of you.

  5. I am so glad that your appointment went well this week! I too have been enjoying the cold weather! It has been really great and makes it feel more like November than it has in past years! I hope you guys have a great weekend!

  6. Yay for a healthy report at the doctor's office. :) And I felt the same way with the advice posts I did before Grace was born. It was so great to hear what worked and didn't work for my blog friends. And you're totally right - Miss AC will have her own preferences and quirks, but you will still be SO thankful to have at least a baseline to start from when you hit a bump in the road.

  7. Oh goodness! 24 degrees is too cold. That is the one thing I am not looking forward to when I head back to MN for Thanksgiving. Congrats on a good appointment!

  8. First, I'm glad you both got a good bill of health! Second, I love #2's title - too cute :) Did it really get down to 24?!?! Wow! Seems a bit early in the season to get that cold! But Houston weather has me all turned around when it comes to "appropriate" temperatures. Last, I didn't link up this week :( I haven't posted since Monday! This week got so away from me!

  9. So glad you are both feeling great and doing well with a clean bill of health! I just saw the christmas pictures as I read my way back to this post. So precious!! It's been humid here this weekend. So foggy that you can hardly see outside. I'm ready for the colder weather...the sooner we get it, the sooner summer will return. Happy Sunday!


Thanks for taking a moment to read the Sowell Life.
