Happy Friday Everyone!!
I'm linking up with Kacey from Doodlebugs Teaching for another fun Five for Friday linky! Tuesday was my birthday. I was spoiled this year by my family. Especially my husband. Last year at this time we had just arrived here in the Bahamas the night before my birthday. My husband had to report to work the very next morning leaving me in the hotel with our kids in a new country. This year has been one to remember.
My husband surprised me with a day away together doing the power boat adventure. It's a day excursion that takes you out to the Exumas. The ride is about and hour and fifteen minutes. First stop is getting to feed iguanas grapes. Then we headed to the Cay where we'd be spending the day. We got to feed wild sting rays from our hand. Then our guide wrangled a couple sharks for us. There were nurse sharks, lemon sharks, and reef sharks. I spent most of the day reading on the beach. Pure heaven! It was a once in a lifetime kind of experience!
I desperately needed new measuring cups and spoon. 10 cups and 10 spoons? Yes, please! Can't wait to use these!!!
With all the power outages here in the Bahamas I have been wanting one of these. This will definitely help!
New spatulas! I'm especially excited about the jar one. This will definitely help with mixing up a new jar of peanut butter and getting the last bits out of a jar.
I also received an amazon gift card and a Shutterfly gift card from my sisters. I'm planning on getting a big lasagna dish with my amazon card. I really need to make some photo books on Shutterfly so I'm going to use my gift card to do just that!
Tomorrow my husband and I along with a bunch of our friends are headed out to see the new Mockingjay movie. So excited! I'm a huge Hunger Games fan. Also looking forward to Thanksgiving. I just love Thanksgiving. It's probably my favorite holiday. We've got friends coming over to celebrate with us. Looking forward to a day of cooking, watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, some football, and some great friends and food.
Happy early Thanksgiving everyone!
