Up first in my 2009 edition:
#1. Christmas fun- Ok now bear with me and my HORRID photos! Zoe woke up somewhere in the 4 oclock area and I was mostly asleep, my flash wasn't working and everything happened sooo dang fast. I figured really awful pictures are better than none at all. But watching her unwrap her ipod for Christmas and the look of shock on her face was fun. Every year she has something that makes her do the "Happy Dance" and the ipod was the clear winner there.
Another awesome Chrismas moment was watching my sister cry as she looked at the scrapbook album I made for her for her present. Now THAT is the reaction I love from a homemade gift.
For Christmas I got to go to my first NBA game! Blazers vs. my team the Suns! Now this may sound like kinda a lame present to some of you, but I can't even begin to explain just how much fun it really was. We scored some awesome seats (row 12!) and we were right behind the Suns bench, so I got to see my fave Steve Nash up close. No one could have fully prepared me for how stunned and shocked I was going to be. I can't wait to go again. I am hoping to get to see LeBron in action this time round ;)
#2. Watching movies at home with the fam- With everyone being on vacation in this household, we got a LOT of movie watching in. There is just something so enjoyable about cuddling up on the couch with the fam and just relaxing.
#3. Lean Cuisine Enchilada Suiza- My friend Jamie turned me on to those. Zoe and I went to visit her and her lil pumkin for Christmas and she said that the enchiladas were awesome. So I picked one up at Alby's the other day and I have to agree. They were packed with flavor and quite a bit of food too, I couldn't finish the whole thing.
#4. Tale of Despereaux- THE BOOK, not so much the movie. Auntie Sasha got Zoe the book for Christmas and we have been reading it ever since. I have to say that I enjoy the book a lot more than I did the movie. The movie, while beautifully animated, it really was, just didn't capture my attention like the book has. What a fun story and Kate DiCamillo is a WONDERFUL writer. WOW!
#5. Scrappy Fave of the Week- The Pink Paislee DT Announcement- I was so shocked and excited to see my name on the GDT list. And am even more thrilled to be sharing a spot alongside some great friends and designers such as Leslie, Kimberly and Jolene! I really love this company and the people behind it and am honored to get to share in the fun.
So there we have it, the first 5 Fave Friday of 2009. May it be a fun and blessed year!
