5 on Friday + GIVEAWAY, Vol. 6

Happy November 1st!
I'm spending this first Friday in November linking up with Darci, April, Christina, and Natasha.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween. James and I had a relaxing night watching scary movies {I hate them!} and carving our pumpkin.

This verse. God has really put this one on my heart lately. It's been my constant reminder that He knows better than I do and His plan is so much better than my own.

This video. We're building a bookshelf for my new office. The wood shelves required sanding. Mom and I figured we could do it on our own. We had the electric hand sander down, so we thought it was time to graduate to the belt sander. It wasn't..

No one was hurt, and the sanding continued with bruised egos and without the stupid belt sander.

This pumpkin. Hugh got a makeover! We James did a great job carving him {I provided emotional support}.

This Halloween tradition. Chili and cornbread has been a Halloween tradition ever since I can remember. It was the perfect late snack night after trick-or-treating! I may not be home anymore, but the tradition will continue.
Chili with jalapeno cheddar cornbread..YUM!
