Looks like it's been a while since I did a High Five for Friday post so I figured I'd better get on that.  Here's what life has been looking like lately...

1.  I'm kind of obsessed with home decor and gardening lately...oh who am I kidding, I've always been obsessed! I've just been giving in and buying the magazines so I can ooh and ahh over all things pretty.  Sunset mag is one of my absolute faves though!

2.  Our son turned 13! 13 people, that's HUGE! I don't know what's scarier, that we have a teenage son or that I'm old enough to be the mother of a teenager.  Eeeeek!

3.  The weather was so amazing that the kids and I decided to go hiking while daddy was stuck with Brigade Staff Duty (army stuff). While hiking we saw horses, 5 deer, ducks, geese, cranes, turtles, and squirrels.  Over all it was a great day!

4.  Which makes it kind of crazy that just a few days earlier we had snow on the ground! That's right snow in May.  What's up with that?

5.  And last but not least I whipped up some homemade coffee creamer.  It turned out pretty yummy and not only was it cheap to make but it was pretty comforting knowing what ingredients were going into our coffee creamer.  Have you read the ingredients on some of the creamers out there?  I can't even pronounce half of the names listed on the label which in turns probably doesn't make them very healthy.  So yay for homemade coffee creamer (I might have to share the recipe on here later, it's that good!).

As always I'll be liking up my High Five for Friday post here.  Happy Friday y'all!


  1. I'm an army wife too! Living in Tennessee but visit CO usually once a year (skiing in winter, horseback riding in summer), love it there!! Homemade creamer sounds delish! We make a lot of the stuff we eat. Bad food is everywhere!

    1. Well hello there! So glad you stopped by. Colorado is so pretty isn't it? Hope you like being stationed in Tennessee. I've never been there but I heard it's lovely! I'm so excited to finally share the recipe for the creamer later this week. It's so yummy!

  2. Visiting from High Five for Friday. I'd like to invite you to my Friday Flash Blog, where you can share your best blog entry of the week! The party goes on ALL weekend at And who knows, you may just get featured next week.


  3. ooohhh i def want the recipe for that creamer! Have a great weekend!

    1. I'm hoping to post the recipe tomorrow! Can't wait to share it :)
