5 on Friday

Linking up again today for 5 on Friday.
#1. This weekend Shelby is getting baptized.
Exciting week for us and our entire family!
We're hosting a light brunch at our house afterwards and can't wait to see everyone.
Some of Brad's family from Virginia will even be in town for it.
Get ready for picture overload next week!

#2. Speaking of next week, it's the 4th of July week!
The 4th is by far my favorite holiday!
I love the red, white, blue, bbqing, laking it, watermelon and fireworks.
Last year on the 4th we did our gender reveal and while that was super special my most favorite Fourth of July ever has to be the year we were in DC and on the Capitol Lawn.
It was me and my parents along with my nephew who was 13.
He's now 23.
A whole 10-years ago!
It was still the coolest ever and I hope to take Shelby to experience it one day too!
#3. For the Fourth, we're taking our new travel trailer on it's Maiden Voyage!
Lu, from Looks Like LuLu, and her hubby are hauling their camper to the mountains with us for the big adventure!
#4. Ready for Napa and the Bay Area!
It's still 2-months away but I'm literally counting down the days until our next trip to the SF Bay Area and Napa!
This time our friends Kathleen, from Reporter turned Mommy, and her hubby are coming with us.
They've never been to Napa so we're already making reservations and booking tastings!
I'm ready for an abundance of creamy cheeses, salty meats, french bread and a little cab and chard!!

#5. Last but certainly not least today is the 5-year anniversary of the day I met my husband Brad.
Yep, it was 5-years ago that friends talked me into leaving my scrapbooking project at home and walking to a nearby bar.
The rest is history.
Here's a picture of our 2nd date after that night.
What are you loving this Friday?!

I can't wait to hear all about your camping trip. Yayee for Napa! I have never been.

Also, check with Brad about a visit or we are coming to you! You could always drive your camper up and park it on a city street :) Ha.

Wow spending the 4th on the lawn of the white house seems like an awesome way to spend the holiday! You are headed up by me on your trip to Napa! If you want a yummy place to eat that is a really fun atmosphere look into Carpe Diem. My friends own it and it is great wine bar with small plates. Highly recommend!

I love DC on the 4th. I was there for the bicentennial (although since i was 4 I dont' remember it). And then again in 1996. A great place to celebrate. Enjoy Shelby's baptism!

Napa will be so fun. So where do you keep these campers when you're not using them?!

April of Smidge Of This said...

Just so you know, we talked at the meet-up last night about how CUTE Shelby is! :)

You guys have an awesome weekend, I know everything will be beautiful for the baptism!

(Napa = jealousy!)
