Fridays Fave Five




Here are the top five things from my week...

1. I went diving! It is not common that just on any given Saturday I get to dive. It is one of my passions and I love it!We saw this structure that looked like a table...and all I could think of was bringing down some plastic cups and pretending to have some tea!

2.Vacation days... here in Brazil everyone has off for the holiday of Zumbi, Dia Nacional da Consciência Negra. He was a black leader who fought slavery and became a symbol of black resistance. Click on the link above for more info if you are interested.

3. Getting ready for our Thanksgiving dinner which is this Saturday. We have around 19 adults and 10 children joining us to give thanks this year! Pictures to come soon!

4. Sunshine...i love the sunshine on the beach and the view from my apartment!

5. My puppy, Bella. She is 4 months old, and still gets me up way to early in the morning, but I love her so much. She is growing so fast. My cat Tiger,
who puts up with her, even though Bella is constantly trying to smush her (with kisses, right? of course :)! I know she still loves me, despite the interruption in her life, because she she still sleeps with me at night! and Coal, my 8 year old mix that we found in
Houston right before Christmas. He is patient and just loves to be pet...

I am jealous of your view. I just love the ocean. I always feel at peace there. Wow! You are going to have a houseful at Thanksgiving. We have a crowd too but not as big as yours. :)

Bella and Coal are adorable! Bella is such a cute puppy! And Tiger really looks like a tiger.

Thanksgiving dinner sounds like a lot of fun. Are you making traditional thanksgiving food?
