High Five for Friday (9.21.18)

On Saturday evening friends and I celebrated another lovely friend's birthday with wine and dinner and bundt cake at Messina Hof Winery. She always chooses this series of activities for her special day, probably because it makes for a delightful evening honoring both her and our favorite beverage.

Boosterthon has begun! This is my sixth time helping run this fundraiser, and while I love it, I can't help but rejoice just a little that this is also my final time (because this is Hallie's last year in elementary school) helping run this fundraiser. Mama is tired.

Someone affiliated with Will's intermediate school (an artistically-gifted parent, I assume) spruced up the doors of the bathroom stalls. 😍

I generally have quite a few stacks of paperwork, bills, magazines, advertisements, coupons, etc. on or around my desk. I know what each stack contains and I work through them every week, but I needed a slightly better system to keep everything contained so I added a few new standing files and a basket on top of the filing cabinet, and then repainted my pencil/pen holder to match the dark bluish green color I used on the Texas Love canvas. The changes are small, but I love the new(ish) look and slightly increased productivity associated with the space!

Happiness Highlights 
Big kitty in a little box.
Came across this new book at
a school book fair and fell in love.
Hallie's "dance family" for the 2018-2019 year.
Last week I found this poster of Will's on the wall
in his science classroom and my heart skipped a beat.
He hates projects, especially those that include an artistic
component, so I have helped him through every single one
he's ever been assigned...except this one. And I love it -
he used bubble letters and different colors and photos
and even drew a picture.
Last Friday night Hallie and I watched Father of the Bride - me
for the first time in 15+ years and her for the first time ever. 
My grocery store started carrying a few new salad mixes and
I've found that divided in two they make great lunches!

Happy Friday, Chasing Roots!
