5 Fact Friday

Happy Friday, friends! This week has seemed so long. Not sure why, but it definitely has. =( I'm grateful for the weekend, even though I won't have too much at home time. I know it will still be a nice weekend!

1. I've been wanting a pretty plant for our porch to spruce it up and make it colorful and pretty. We went to Lowe's on Sunday looking for the perfect thing. Our porch doesn't get much direct sunlight so it made it very difficult to find a plant that would work. However, I found this New Guinea Impatiens and loved it!

2. Until yesterday, I had never made a Pineapple Upside Down Cake before. I know how much Collin likes it so I offered to make one for his birthday. I then decided I really wanted to make the cake batter by scratch. I was so concerned it was not going to turn out very well, but everyone said it was good!

3. I think Collin had a pretty good birthday! He seemed to really enjoy himself. And he even got to play a little bit of guitar in the afternoon! He loves to play his guitar.

4. It's so funny watching the cats play. Especially when Seabass is climbing up or down his cat condo. It's really nice though when he's finally being peaceful and calmly sitting atop it!

Seabass loves the cat condo his daddy built him! #cats #catsofinstagram #furbaby #handyman

5. I hate that I haven't taken too many pictures of the spring pretties this year. I mean, I did get like 100 some shots, but all on my iPhone and I didn't do a photo walk and get pictures of some things I was meaning to before they turned green. Oh well. Photos like this one make me not so sad about not using my Nikon though. The iPhone can take a pretty good picture!


Have a great weekend, friends! I'll see you back here next week!



  1. Ooo, I like the porch plant! I completely understand what it's like to live in darkness, lol.

    I think we need to just start carrying our Nikons around like we're big deals. No one has to know. :D

  2. Happy Birthday to Collin and pineapple upside down cake sounds delicious. Impatiens are so pretty -- good choice. Kitties and their condos -- fun! Happy Friday!

  3. love the dogwood shot. i agree pineapple upside down cakes are the greatest. so yummy!!! they are awesome! ( :

  4. That plant is beautiful! Perfect to brighten it up around your porch! I can't wait until we buy a home and can start planting flowers!

  5. I think the iphone takes super shots, I love your flower shot, Seabass does he know he is named after a fish ;-) lovely blog

  6. Ha ha, Seabass looks kinda surprised you're taking his picture.

  7. That dogwood shot is great! A really unusual but lovely perspective.

    Your kitty is so pretty! Cats are really funny. They have their own personalities, and I love watching them.

    Your pineapple upside down cake sounds good. How great that you cooked it from scratch! I've never tried that, but I'm not much of a cook.
