Friday's Fave 5

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story hosts this fun meme about your five favorite things of the week. In no certain order, mine are:

1. Hot chocolate made with milk, a large helping of Reddi Whip and crushed Andes Mints. This is my new favorite. If I were a genie, this would be my bottle-to-live-in of choice, even though it's not a bottle. Let's not quibble over words when this degree of goodness is involved. Blink, blink, let me in there!

2. My first slab of gingerbread. I'm going to attempt to make a house. To do this successfully, I have already learned that I must stop eating the shutters and doors and half a roof. I do not want my Gingerbread family to be living in a gingerbread FEMA trailer because a giant woman ate their house. I want them to have a real home without bite marks. Someone call Ty Pennington. Or maybe Richard Simmons to stop me.

3. A certain "someone" got a bow.

4. A room that went from this (2 pics) to this (3rd pic).

5. This post by Gwendolyn of All's Fair in Love and Chocolate about a little wheezy, mucousy boy at her daycare and what her son said about him, which is only the cutest thing ever in the entire history of man. You should click over there to read it right now.

What were some of your favorite moments this week? Hop on over to Susanne's place to share them with us! Have a great Friday. It's my favorite day of the week!

*Edit: I forgot! I'm writing at the Internet Cafe today, too. Please pop over (button on sidebar) and see what you think.


Mocha with Linda said...

1. Yum. Whipped cream, chocolate, & Andes mints. Sounds delish!

2. You are too funny. I'm sure we can count on you to show us the finished product.

3. Awww.

4. Can you bring your magic camera to my house?

5. That was priceless!!

Wow, this was a really coherent post. AND you wrote a great one over at the Cafe! Benadryl becomes you. Go figure. How's your blepharitis today? Hang in there!

Susanne said...

You crack me right up. You really need to put warnings such as "Swallow your beverage before continueing" in your posts. LOL.

I'm afraid your going to addict me to a new drink. I love Andes mints. On top of whipped cream and hot choc even better.

Some of my favortite things this week:

1. The first sip of the first cup of morning coffee (which I happen to be enjoying right now)

2. The sunrise and how it looks different every single day

3. The smell of a yankee candle, pumpkin pie scent, burning in my house

4. The smell of each of my kids' heads...and how each of them smell completely different

5. The way I feel after I've just completed a killer work out.

I love your writing style...I just discovered you. Looking forward to reading more.

Hi there! I just thought I'd let you know I was finally brave enough to do a video on my blog! I decided to recite some Scottish poetry. Love your blog!! :)

Melli said...

I love this meme... I've never seen it before. I hope I can remember it next Friday! How nice to have that clean clean room again! Wonder how long it lasts... LOL! I did go read about the Mucous Baby... love it!

Liz said...

I did hop over to read about "mucous boy", and that was hilarious. Poor little guy. I think I just found a new blog to read. She's funny.

Hi Linda,

I linked over from Susanne's meme.

Oh, wow -- crushed Andes mints. That's what I've been missing.

Congrats on the room redo. I love order.

Looking forward to gingerbread-baking season,
Lisa the Correspondent

Renna said...

You crack me up; and now I'm going to HAVE to try a cup of that chocolate!

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

That hot chocolate sounds divine and gingerbread ... YUM! I've been resisting the urge to buy cookie dough all week.

Debbie said...

I'm going to make gingerbread this weekend. Not the slab kind, the soft kind with whipped cream for the top. Yum!

Esthermay said...

Not seen this meme before. Neat. I am going to try the #1 please. Hot chocolate-milk-LG helping of Reddi Whip-crushed Andes. This MAY become my new favorite as it will be introduced under circumstances found here:

NOW... in all seriousness. (REALLY) Great post at the Cafe' today. Much truth. Your topic was so pertinent and you did it up so well.

Marina said...

Hugs, marina

Tammy said...

I love the makeover magic in the bedroom. I keep waving my magic wand and nothing...I knew that thing wasn't real. ;-)

Mmmmmm....I need to make your version of hot chocolate for my kids, then maybe use it as a "clean up your room" bribe!

Debra said...

Loved loved loved #1...and headed over to check out Gwendolyn's post.

The bow was also precious!

Thanks for stopping by my place nice to meet you. Sorry it took me a while to get this way...hubby has just had surgery and had a post op appt!

Blessings to you today!

Becky said...

AWwww... what a cute little bow! She is so shinny and adorable.

I'm going shopping tomorrow, my list:

Reddi whip
Andes mints


Becky said...

Oops. Forgot to tell you that I did your "eyes have it" questionnaire. About two posts ago ;-)

Robin said...

Great list! That hot chocolate sounds great! I'm going to have to try it with the candy on top :)

Kim said...

Trying to catch up on all the reading I haven't done this week! LOVE this post! :) chocolate! Almost as good as a large mug of Chai spiced coffee or tea!

You're stinkin' hilarious Lidna! :)

Brenda said...

I found you over Suzanne's.

I NEED a second cup of coffee every day just to get going, but that hot chocolate looks very, very, good.

Robin said...

That Zoe - she is such a cutie pie! And the hot chocolate sounds wonderful - but I sure don't need one more chocolate thing added to my day!

And I loved the post about the nasally baby - kids - what would we ever do without them?

VaQueenBee said...

This was fun. And the Andes mints thing... "Oh My!"

I did this too, and had lots of fun coming up with five fave things this week. I could have gone on with more after I got started!
