High Five for Friday

Welcome back, Friday, you old faithful friend!  For the third Friday in a row, I'm happy to be linking up with my top 5's of the week.  This week is kind of a random mix of things all of which have made me smile.

Free Krispy Kreme.  This one should be pretty self explanatory.  Cream filled doughnut and coffee on Monday morning?  Yes, please.  :)

The towel hanger.  We've been looking around for a while for towel hooks that I love ever since we decided to get rid of the long, single towel bars in our bathrooms.  We had this wooden hook rack from Michael's  that I got last year to use for our keys.  We haven't been using it for keys in our house and finally, it just hit me that we should use it for towels!  Duh!!!  And so, I've started painting it and hope to put a coat of sealant on it to protect it from wet towels, but I am so excited to hang this baby up!  More on that later.

Soccer season.  I am happy that soccer is back.  And since one of my bros-in-law is a senior this year, we got to go to our first high school soccer game of the season this year.  I'm lucky to have a husband with brothers that are all good at soccer.  I just love to watch all of them play!

This steak dinner.  We got a great deal on these steaks and I was happy to grill them up for dinner this week!

And my favorite for last - this fun fishtail braid!  I am so happy to have finally learned how to do this - I actually learned how to do this recently from a ten year old.  I decided to wear it like this to work to avoid drying my hair.  And I got so many compliments on it.  I wish I had taken pictures of the process, but it was pre-7AM, so there are no tutorial pictures on my camera.  Don't you worry though, I pinned this great tutorial from a Beautiful Mess that should help you out if you're trying to create the fishtail yourself.  

So there you have it, high fives all around!  We've got a super fun weekend planned here, which means more fun Five on Fridays coming your way!

What's making you smile this week?
