Friday Favorites: I’ll just be over here putting out fires if you need me

Oh my word this has been a week!  It has been one problem opportunity after another, both at work and at home.  I wish I had a quiet weekend to look forward to, but moving Amy into her new house is probably not going to be quiet and relaxing.  Maybe Sunday?

I’m linking up with Andrea this week to share a few favorites – because looking for grace in the chaos is healing.  Or so they say.

The Colorado peaches are here!!!  Are you familiar with Colorado peaches?  I wasn’t until recently, so when I saw them at HyVee last Sunday I jumped up and down inside.  And then another couple came by and the woman literally shouted “The Colorado peaches are here!”.  And then, I was back in the meat department and an employee was pushing a cart with cases of peaches and another employee said “The Colorado peaches are here? They are a week early!!”  It was a very exciting day at the HyVee.

But I can’t even begin to describe how sweet and juicy they were.  Two days in a brown paper lunch bag = perfect peaches.  Get yoself some Colorado peaches!


We finally have a hitch receiver on our vehicle.  Of course, I don’t have a picture of that, but this was my office space while I was waiting for them to install it.

Cozy leather couch right there in the windshield wiper section of the store.  Definitely a first for me!  But kudos to Radco Truck Accessory Center in Oakdale.  They told us it would take 60 – 90 minutes and they were done in 40.

I’m still gushing over my new living room.

Besides being so pretty, I get this enormous sense of calm when I walk in my front door now.  It’s not some random assortment of furniture that doesn’t fit anywhere else anymore, it’s a collection of comfortable, cozy items that reflect our personalities.  I think HGTV would approve.

Zach has a plan.  I know this sounds really strange for a favorite, but the uncertainty has been a huge stress for me and now everything is falling into place.  I’m sure he wasn’t stressed, because Zach has the gift of “everything always works out”, but I’m a worrier when I don’t know every detail.  Who am I kidding, I’m a worrier even when I do know every detail!  Parenting adults is hard – you have to let them live their lives, and just hope they know you are there if they need you.  **Note to my children – I’M HERE IF YOU NEED ME!!**

I’m just going to end with this guy.  With all the crazy going on this week it’s been extra comforting to snuggle with him.

So wish us luck with our first move tomorrow, and have a great weekend!
