Five Faves Friday!!!

TGIFFF! Thank God it's Five Faves Friday!
This week has been a fabulous week so it was so hard to narrow down from all the things I loved. But here are the top that helped me make it thru!

#1. Zoe being so happy in school this week. What a relief and blessing that has been. It is so great to see her wanting to go to school and to hear all about her day when she gets home from school. That has made my week one of the best EVER!

#2. Good reads in the form of Dean Koontz's Frankenstein! I love Dean Koontz books and my mom gave me the first 2 in this series to read. Scary, suspenseful and of course extremely well written. One of those books that you just can't put down. If you love Dean Koontz books or are a fan of scary novels, I highly urge you to try these out :)

#3. The snack that has gotten me thru the week- my big ol bag of Mini Mix candy bars, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Snickers oh my! and a second treatie- saltwater taffy from the coast. We bought not 1 but 2 bags and both of them are almost completely gone. I am a sucker for the peppermint, cinnamon, butter, yes butter flavored and lime. Heck give me any saltwater taffy other than licorice and I am going to like it.

#4. Gilmore Girls- I can't believe I said that! It's like this, have you ever had one of those shows that you watch and you don't even know why you watch it (like Designing Women LOL), well this is one of those shows. Zoe loves to watch Full House in the mornings and Gilmore Girls comes on right before it, so I was always catching the tail end of the show. I guess this piqued my interest because now I am taping the damn thing to see what happens every day! I feel like I need to go back to the beginning to see how it all started.

#5. my scrappy fave of the week- the newest addition to the Paper Trunk family JOTS! Carrie has designed the cutest little journaling tags, check these out!

Aren't these just adorable. They are made from 100% recyclable material. They are good and sturdy and I had a lot of fun playing with them yesterday. Be looking for our newsletter this month to see these embellies in action. And congrats to Danielle Holsapple our TDOM for September. She had an amazing entry for our journaling challenge and I am thrilled to have her aboard for the month!

I have a 2nd fave of the week as well. I can't leave out American Crafts Moda Bella papers. They are every bit of gorgeous that I thought they would be and the colors are so incredible to work with. You can not look at this paper and be angry at the same time. Instant mood elevators they are ;)

So there you have it. My 5 faves this week. Are you making 5 Faves lists? Do you want to be added to my 5 Faves sidebar, let me know and link me up. I am going to try my hand at making my first blinkie next week.

Have a wonderful weekend all. My friend Marcie and I are heading to a wine festival tomorrow and I am so looking forward to that. I am sure that something from there will end up on my 5 fave list next week ;)

Happy Friday and Happy Birthday to my friend ANIA, hope it's a great one girl!

I have not gotten into Gilmore Girls, but if it's as addictive as Designing Women (with the original cast), it's probably best I stay away.

Thanks for the tip on the Guitar Hero. I'm a little nervous about that game because of all the extra buttons. I'm apparently multi-button challenged.

Have fun wine tasting!

Since I got to see some of the journaling circles, I can attest to their cuteness and can't wait to try some.

I LOVE butter taffy. That sounds delish and reminds me of the time we went to Bandon and hit the candy stores while Brice rode his bike at the dirt track. Remember that?

Davinie said...

You are so smart. Love the Fiday 5 idea. I might jump in too if I can get myself organized, lol.
LOVE those jots! Very cool name too.
Gilmore Girls? Heard of it, but I've never watched it! I don't normally watch that channel for some reason.
