Five Faves Friday!!!

WOO HOOO! Back on board the Five Faves Friday train. I am starting right off with my list, which is going to be a combination of last weeks faves and this weeks.

#1. Ok so this is totally old news now but the opening ceremonies for the Olympics were insanely awesome! I was skeptical about the Olympics in general I guess, but WOW talk about innovative ideas. It is impossible to watch that and NOT be inspired to create something.

#2. Also old news, but the season ending episode of My Boys last week left me literally gasping out loud. Dorky I know ,but I did. It reminds me of how I acted when watching 90210 in high school LOL. Except I don't have my friend Jamie nearby to discuss the entire episode from beginning to end. Ohh and I totally have a crush on the cute new guy (Jack) on the show as well!If you haven't watched the show but think you might want to...guess what, you can watch the episodes online!

#3. Watching my man play drums. I rarely get to do this anymore and Zoe hardly ever gets to see her Daddy play the drums. But we were able to see him play 2 times in 3 days. NEVER has that happened before. Here is a pic of Zoe and Daddy at the drums.

#4. Strawberry Limeades from Sonic- My brand new fave drink. It is embarrassing to say how many times I have gone to Sonic since it's grand opening here a few weeks ago. But it is ALOT. I could drink one of these babies every day. Soo sooo stinking good!


#5. Scrappy Fave of the Week- Heck I haven't done any scrapping for about 2 weeks at least, so this week I will post one of my new favorite scrappy blogs- Momentary Bliss. I love Maria Grace's style and her site is beautiful. So I have been stalking her blog lately. Check it out if you haven't yet.


So there they are. Quite pictureless but a Faves post nonetheless. As always, if you post a five faves list today, don't forget to come share the link. I love reading everyone's lists and I found out that we have another friend who has joined the bandwagon and has been posting for quite a while now as well. So check out Joanie's blog today for her five faves: http://thisandthatandthensome.blogspot.com/


I do have a couple small scrappy things to share. I made these two cards a couple a weeks ago using the new Webster's Pages journaling cards and Inspired lines. Thought I would share them with you.


This was the first time I have EVER used a sewing machine, so don't laugh too hard. Those are some crooked crooked lines. I love the new Inspired journaling notecards that Terri has designed. Aren't they beautiful!

This was a save the date reminder for a wedding that I attended a few weeks ago. It was a beautiful wedding and Zoe had a blast. I think this was the first wedding she has been to.

Also, don't forget my challenge this month at the inspireME site! You still have 2 weeks left. I would love to see some more entries in the gallery :)

Have a fabulous weekend. Tomorrow is a Wine Festival I am hoping to go to for a few hours tomorrow if it isn't 110 degrees outside. Crazy Oregon weather. Take care!

Glad to see you are back in the groove. I spent this afternoon sorting the stacks of patterned paper into manageable stacks and filed a bunch into my storage. I may even be able to scrap again soon. ha ha

I keep forgetting you have a blog now! Love all the older songs you have uploaded on your play-list too!

Hmmm, I really wish we had a Sonic close to us (nearest one is about 2 hours away). I keep wishin' one would open up soon. Drink one of those Strawberry Limeades for me ;)
