Friday's Fave Five

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story hosts a great Friday meme, which is cleverly named, FRIDAY'S Fave Five. You should jump in. Funny how when you're little, you don't like to be cut in line at school, but on blogs, you invite people to jump in. I guess I would appreciate it, though, if you read through this first! (Uh, but you don't have to, and I'll never know it.)

Here we go: #1. This is the dress I ordered on line from Penney's. For some reason, I've been looking for a black wrap dress for a long time. Made of matte jersey, which I love because it has "body." Also, v-neck but not too much chestage, covers upper arms and is a nice length. Bingo. It's on back order until 9.28, though. So I don't know if I truly like it yet, but I couldn't keep it to myself; I had to tell you about it because we are BFFs and we share everything important. I hope I look just like this in it, except not as brunette.

#2: The shot of Kristin I've been trying to get for four weeks. I am now an awesome mom.

#3: Katie took this pic of Jorge and me, which makes me smile. He does look a little tipsy here, but keep in mind he's a teetotaler and we're at a XC meet, so the only drug he's on is LUV.

#4: New candle holders that I bought at Cracker Barrel, that regional restaurant that most of you have never heard of (according to my Random Dozen meme) a few weeks ago with friends. Love getting the Fall decorations out because most of my house is done in autumnal colors. You can click on it if you'd like to see it better. And see my Kazakh "taking the trash out" shoes at the patio doors better.

#5: Last but not least is this picture taken by my friend, Claudia, which she posted on FB. I asked if I could post it here, and she said, "Yes." Which worked out nicely for me, since it's one of my favorite photos I've seen in a while and this is a meme about favorites. In case you can't make it out, it's a chipmunk sitting safely in the hands of Jesus in a cemetery.

Now, a couple of weeks ago, I posted on FB that on the way to work, I hit a chipmunk. And he died. That was the first live thing I've ever hit in 30 years of driving. Still, it made me feel really bad. So guess what the first thing I thought of was when I saw this pic?

Thanks, Claudia! Thanks, Susanne!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Love your pics.

Melli said...

I am sure you will look SMASHING in that black wrap! And I don't think you have to worry about looking that brunette! :)

GREAT shot of Kristin! Well done!

I LOVE those candle holders! And that TABLE! And the walls in that room are the same color as half the walls in my entire downstairs! That is suuuuuch a great color! Soothing. I'm fixin' to get out my fall decorations here very soon! You've inspired me!

I just mean I have been a brunette, and a red head. I need to stay blonde. Trust me.

Oooh -- love that dress!!

Joyce said...

I'm loving the candlesticks! Is that a table or a countertop they are sitting on? I love the look of the slate.

Have a great weekend!

Susanne said...

I rarely wear a dress anymore but if I had to have one that one is sweet! I'm sure you'll look great in it!

Cute pic of you and Jorge! Ain't luv grand?!

And you know, that picture of the Jesus statue and chipmunk totally ministered to me. Love it.

Very nice candlesticks. And you mean there are folks who haven't heard of Cracker Barrel? Oh, poor people. They don't know what they are missing. It's a favorite restaurant of ours - especially with their chicken fried steak.

The dress is very pretty. Hope it will get here sooner than you think. What a great picture of Kristin. It's hard to get those action running shots. Aw, I love the LUV drug pic. {smile}

Carrie said...

Love the candles. Little things like that can be such a nice touch to a home!

And that's an awesome dress too! Hope you love it!

Brenda said...

I love those candles and I really like that black wrap dress! I might have to try and find one for myself also!

Hi Linda, A great post for today.The black dress will look nice on you with your tiny body... on me it would cling to my breast and butt!!

The perfect shot of your daughter and of Hubby and yourself.My hair was blond but now it is almost back to total gray..I liked the shiny gray better, so I don't know what I will end up doing with my hair..

I am sorry for the loss of your friend Lenette. She must have been a great person who cared about everyone..
Take care, Baba
