High Five for Friday (4.7.17)

1. I knew I would have fun, but Tom too enjoyed himself - he even said, "the next time we do this" - at our first couples painting experience. We have tremendously different styles of doing almost everything, and painting was no exception; I followed the instructions almost to the letter, while Tom allowed his creativity to guide his brush strokes and color choices. In the end, I kind of like his painting (except for his huge signature in the bottom right-hand corner) better than mine...

2. On Monday morning two friends and I met for coffee at a new establishment in town that serves coffee (and pastries - because we went on the day of their grand opening they gave us samples of their divine cinnamon rolls) in the morning and...wait for in the evening. I have a feeling I should pick up a punch card for this place as soon as possible.

3. On Monday night, NCAA basketball tournament victory was awarded to...Will! He correctly chose both teams in the final game and UNC as champion, and he was off by only three points in the combined point total tie-breaker. If Gonzaga had won the game, Will and I would have tied and the victor determined by tie-breaker (OF COURSE we have a tie-breaker - we couldn't possibly accept something this competitive ending in a tie), so we actually watched every minute of the game. We had fun, but somewhat regretted that late night fun on Tuesday morning...

4. Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh!" he whispered. 
   "Yes, Piglet?"
   "Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
Those are Will's toes under Tux's paw.
5. Happiness Highlights:
A friend gifted me this fabulous mug. I'm looking forward to
using it the next time I have an ordinary day...when will that be? 
Hallie's sweet friend Grace read her almost an entire chapter book
while they snuggled together in Hallie's bed on Saturday afternoon.
My absolute favorite American Girl accessories are the crockpot
and its accompanying meal of BBQ chicken, broccoli, rolls, and
glasses of milk. Hallie and I had quite the tea party on Sunday. 
This one's a week late, but I forgot to share it before...
This is sweet Calvin, wearing a shirt that once belonged
to sweet Cullen, who wore it after I bought it for my
sweet nephew Carter. I love hand-me-downs!
Just when you think you won't make it through the
evening's practices, lessons, and meetings, your friend
texts from the line at Starbucks and brings you the pick-
me-up you so desperately need. Thank you, Rebecca!

Happy Friday, Chasing Roots!
