Five Faves on Friday the 13th!!

Ohhhhh Friday the 13th LOL. Wonder if any good scary movies are going to be on tonite?
Well I would say this week was a great week. The sun has been shining, Zoe and I have been getting along pretty well with her being home all day and we have had lots of fun just playing around and being goofy.

During the week I keep actively looking and thinking of things to post for my Friday fave list and I think I am just going to have to create a little post it note holder or a notebook or something in which to jot down the things that I want to highlight during the week. Because inevitably, I end up forgetting and then really racking my brain to come up with something during post time.

I have had several people post that they too are starting a Five Faves Friday on their blogs as well. So come on all you peeps, hop on the Five Fave band wagon and post along with us. Maybe if we get enough people we can have a huge Five Fave blog party!

So I will shut up now and just get on with it.

#1. SUMMER VACATION! It just doesn't get any better than that! It is so fantastic to not have anywhere to be for the next few days. We even slept in a bit today, shhhhh!

#2. Cloud Watching- Zoe and I spent Wednesday soaking in the sun (even though there was a bit of a chill in the wind, hence the sweater in the picture) staring up at the sky and watching the clouds. They were huge billowy clouds and you could see them spread out and get larger right over the top of our heads. They looked like we could just reach up and touch them.

#3. My new Fossil purse! I have been wanting new Fossil purse for forever now and I happened across one at Ross of all places. We had gone there the other day to pick up a new shirt for John and I happened to go wander over to the purses and found this cutie purse for $26.99!

#3. My Boys on TBS. I LOOVE this show. Jim Gaffigan cracks me up (HOT POCKETS!!!!). It reminds me of a tomboyish Sex and the City. Which by the way I am going to go see with my friend Judi tonight. Super excited. Anyways. My Boys is funny and dorky and cute. It's on Thursdays on TBS.

#4. History Channel. I don't know when I turned into such a nerd, maybe I have been a huge one my whole life and just never knew it LOL. But I am watching entirely too much History Channel lately! John and I have the DVR set up to tape about 3 different programs on here. Our faves: Ice Road Truckers and Ax Men.

Ice Road Truckers is incredibly intense. I can't believe people DRIVE ON THE ARCTIC OCEAN for a living. My stomach is in knots the entire time we watch this.

Ax Men is so fun to watch because it is filmed here in Oregon. Now being a native Oregonian, we all either have an immediate family member or friend who is in the logging or wood products business. My Mom worked in the mill for over 20 years herself. But I have never been able to see the logging side of the business up close. So it has been a huge eye opener at how scary that job really is. The first season of Ax Men is over now but if you get a chance to watch it and you haven't yet. Check it out!

#5. Scrappy Fave of the week- Well I haven't done a whole lot of scrapping this week at all, but product wise I think these little beauties need to be mine! These Am Crafts glitter thickers are ADORABLE!!! They are having a giveaway on their blog so head on over and leave a comment for a chance to win. I know I for sure did!

So there you have it once again, a few of my favorite things for this week. If you join the Five Fave Things bandwagon let me know so I can come check out yours!
Have a Happy Friday and a great weekend!
