Friday's Fave Five

What kind of blogger posts a Friday post late on a Saturday???  Well that would be me - better late than never, right? Of course my Dad would say, "A day late and a dollar short."  :)

I was far too busy to post on Friday and the whole Blogger being down thing didn't help.  And by the time I got home last night, I was too tired.  Today I was busy - hubs and I were trying to get caught up on a few things around the house.  You should be glad about that 'cause now there are no more tufts of dog hair floating along the floor - ew.  OK - so here's Friday's post...finally:

I thought it would be fun to join in Friday's Fave Five today, hosted by Living to Tell the Story!  I like randomness and I like to share some of my fave things - sounds like fun!

Some of my fave things this week...

1.  Pinterest.  Have you been there?  Love it!  You might get addicted to "pinning" things - don't say I didn't warn you.  It's like visual bookmarking and it makes me happy.  I was having trouble getting an invite and through the connections of Twitter, the lovely and talented Lisa Leonard got me an official invite so I could get signed up (Thank you Lisa)!  You can check out my Yummy Things to Make board (in progress) to give you an idea of what it's like.  According to Pinterest, you can request an invite here and they will e-mail you one.

2.  Happy Hour at Starbucks.  It was a fun treat to have some half-price frappuccinos this week.  And it's still going on through Sunday (3-5pm)!

3.  Not turning on the A/C yet.  By this time, the A/C has usually been running for a while, but we have had cooler weather this year.  So we haven't turned it on once!  Now it did get up to 80 degrees in the house a couple of times, but that's what we set our thermostat at anyway so no need to start it up.  It'll be turning on soon enough, I'm sure!

4.  My kiddo's professional e-mail skillz.  My son is the Patrol Leader for the youngest/newest Boy Scouts and is learning as he goes along.  He needed to send an e-mail to remind a Scout about something and I didn't tell him what he should say.  Later on I had a chance to see what he had sent out and I was so impressed at his professional little e-mail (since he's only 11)!  Here it is:

Hi J.....!
               I wanted to remind you that if you have any gear from Camp O
Ree,  you need to wash it and give it back to N..... because he is the
quartermaster. If you have any gear after a campout, you should have it done 

by the next meeting if you can. See you at the meeting.
B.....  :)

Maybe it sounds like no big deal, but I liked it!  Anybody wanna hire my kid?  :)

5.  My friend Brooke's blog post: the kindness of God {to the aspiring writers}.  Such a good post and talked about something I have definitely struggled with in the past and probably most bloggers have struggled with at one time or another.  It's about wanting what someone else has in the blogging/writing world.  I love Brooke's heart!  You should check out her blog: A Life in Need of Change.  You won't regret it!

Whew - that's 5!!  What are some of your fave things this week?

Stop over at Living to Tell the Story to see everybody's Fave Five!

Have a lovely weekend friends!


  1. Wow! I can't believe you haven't needed the a/c yet. But it's been in the 90's here some days so I guess we heated up a little bit quicker.
    Loved the B man's email. He has a gift. LOL!
    Going to go check out the other topics of interest right now.

    Big I always seem to leave with something to do when I come here size hugs to you!
    Love you sweet friend.

  2. Hi Lisa! I'm so glad you joined us! It's never to late to look back at our blessings so I'm really glad you jumped right on board.

    Your son's email was awesome. He sounds so grown up.

    Our heater only quite kicking in at night last week. It has been colder this year. We're in southern Alberta so that means no a/c for awhile yet.

  3. We keep going from needing heat to sweating. Crazy.

    I have no idea what #1 is?

  4. I think a lot of us enjoyed Happy Hour at Starbucks the past couple of weeks, its great that they do that!

  5. Oh my goodness....Pinterest is so cool! I love it too!

  6. I was thinking the same thing a while back. That I started blogging to be part of a community. Being a SAHM, you don't get out much, but blogging gave me a chance to talk to other moms and the world in general. I have actually stopped blogging very much because you don't get the feed back that you used to. And why blog if no one's reading? :D

    Anyway, thanks for the reminder and know that I'm reading, even when I don't remember to say anything. :D
