Five Faves Friday the Aug 22nd edition!

Ok playdate is over and I still have about 10% of my sanity left LOL
Without further adieu my fave list:
#1. Zoe finally learned to swim this week. Out there on her lil own. I thought it would never happen and probably wouldn't have if she didnt have a cousin to show off for. We were swimming at my mom's pool and we had some cousins over as well and Zoe just had to prove to cousin Cierra that she could indeed swim and off she went. She did a great job. Cousin Aaliyah swam on her own for her first time as well :)

#2. ESSN Sparking Fuji Apple Juice- This was one of those great lil finds from Grocery Outlet. You never know what you are going to see (literally) food wise or crazy people wise but we picked up a few of these juices and they are FANTASTIC! PLUS the design on the can is awesome. I have to try scraplifting it somehow. They have a wide array of flavors such as Blood Orange and Cranberry (which was a bit bitter but would have been really great with some vodka in it LOL), Minneola Tangerine and Meyer Lemon (bit bitter as well but still pretty dang good)!

#3. Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget- OK I hate Bob Saget, he drives me up a bloody wall. Zoe's favorite show right now is Full House and we have to watch it EVERY DAY! But the roast of Bob Saget aka Danny was pretty damn hilarious. Gilbert Gottfried who normally annoys the heck out of me, made me laugh so hard I thought I was going to pee my pants. Chloris Leachman cracked me up as well. Anyone else watch this, or was I the only sad viewer? LOL

#4. The movie The Notebook- I read this book years ago and totally forgot that there was even a movie made about it. It was on TV the other night so I recorded it and watched it a few nights ago. Rarely do I ever think that movies are as good as the books, but this movie was every bit as wonderful as the book. I laughed, I sighed, and of course I cried like a baby at the end. If you haven't read the book yet you can purchase it here at Amazon! Sooo very romantic *sigh*

#5. My Scrappy Fave of the Week- is an oldie but a goodie. KI Memories Lace Cardstock! I just love this stuff. So very versatile, it goes with about any other product out and it is just plain cool! I am DYING to get my hands on their new Sheer Delights... Good stuff, good stuff!

I have a few shout outs for several of my scrappy friends who have had HUGE successes lately.

1st- Congrats to one of my favorite people Anabelle O'Malley for becoming a MEMORY MAKERS MASTER! I am so stinking thrilled and happy for her. Seriously never a truer and kinder soul will you ever know. And talented beyond belief!

Next Huge congrats to my friends Ania and Emeline for both winning MMM runners up! Such a great achievement and both of them are so fresh and funky with their scrapping. Huge inspirations to me and I am proud to have worked with both of them!

And last but certainly not least the fabulous Tracie Hudson for being added to Sassafras Lass! She will do such an amazing job for them and they are so very lucky to have her :)

What a fantastic week this has been for so many friends :) I am just thrilled for you all.

So there is my list. I have been working on a few things that I will be able to share with you next week. I hope you all have a great weekend!

A, J, and G said...

Yeah for Zoe! I'm so proud of her for swimming! Of course, this could be because I'm an ex-swimming teacher. Good for her!

BTW, have I told you how super HOT you look in your blog profile pic? Such a hot mama!

I JUST watched The Notebook for the first time a few weeks ago when I borrowed it from my niece. I LOVED it... may have to read the book sometime!

Hey there Dena! I just love your fav five lists. I really feel like I learn a thing or two from them. Now I know I need to find that sparkling juice you talked about. I found something this week that is topping my happy chart that maybe I can tell you about. It's the Tyler candle from the Tyler Candle Company. They make lots of fragrances, but their signature Tyler scent is my favorite. Smells like a blend of peach/citrus and smells so clean. I remember you liked the citrus perfumes, so this made me think of you.
Have a great day!
