high five for friday {link up}

This morning I was checking out my blogroll as I do most mornings & read Holly's post for today and was inspired to join in the linky fun.
Picking favorites is really hard for me, so I'm really happy to have 5 choices! 

 welcome to my edition of 

1. Family time ~ It seems that some of the best family time we've been having lately is spent on the kitchen floor {which if you've seen our kitchen floor, you'd probably totally judge me}. We play a lot of ball with Eli in the kitchen & now he requests that we sit on the floor by either taking our hands & tugging on them or by slapping the floor.  It's become a "thing" for us & I really like it dog hair, crumbs & all.
2. Truck book ~ Of course, Eli will always be in my list of favorites, but this week it's been his enthusiasm over trucks. His vocabulary at this point consists of 2 words: ball & truck. "Truck" sounds more like "buck", but there is a distinction from ball. {yeah, makes this momma's heart so happy that "mama" is not on that list} But to see his little face light up at the sight or sound of a truck melts my heart every time. So, when I saw this truck book, I just had to buy it. We now read it about 12 times a day.
3. Headbands ~ I've been crafting a lot lately & these have been one of my projects. I'm really considering selling them.  What do you think? Would you wear one? Buy one for a friend? A daughter? A sister?
4. Redecorating ~ I am slowly, s l o w l y trying to get our living room complete. As soon as I took down the Christmas stuff, I got out these owl friends to be my inspiration to get a move on.  This week I've been doing some planning {even if it is only in my head} & I'm ready to start completing projects to hang on the walls.
5. Alias ~ Now, this may seem quite random & really quite outdated, but this has been a favorite lately! Since we cancelled our cable almost a year ago, we find old series that we can watch together.  Recently the ones we've chosen have been so short & it really stinks when you get so into a show & then BAM! It's over. Thankfully, Alias has about 5 seasons.  On a side note, since starting Alias, I have literally had a spy dream every night that we have watched it.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
