Friday Favs

I am overjoyed that it's FRIDAY!! My head is reeling with all the possibilities this day brings.

*clean house for weekend while listening to 80's music and sipping a Diet Pepsi {BIG one!}
*check out my blog friends and leave some love
*head over to church tonight for a SCRAPBBOK NIGHT! {yes!}
*watch my favorite soap with lunch
*enjoy the sunshine!!
 [I know that cleaning may sound boring but I actually enjoy getting my home ready for a relaxing weekend!! Call me CRAZY!!]

What sorts of fun things do you
love to do on FRIDAYS?!

It's Friday Favs so let's get to it!

I have lots of photos to share with you today. Each one makes me happy!!

Palm Sunday we spent the day with my Mom. Ate lunch, hung out and just enjoyed one another. Now my Mom ADORES decorating everything. She always puts her special touch on everything she does. Love that about her:) Here is one of my very favorite "touches"...

How stinkin' cute is this?? A happy little chef greeting us in her dining room with our menu for the day. Mom, this is awesome and I appreciate you doing stuff like this!! {now i gotta get  mom to read my blog...}

That same day I snapped this photo....Can you guess what my daughter Em is wearing?

It's my PROM DRESS!! Mom got out my wedding dress, too. What fun we had! Typical 80's Prom dress-huh? Almost "Pretty in Pink" like...
Em decided this would NOT be her choice of dress-LOL!

We had such a harsh winter...lots of snow and frigid temps. YUCK! So as soon as we had the first nice day you can bet we were all outside. Here's what Em did after school one day...

Put on her shorts and headed out to the tramp for a little school work. LOVE IT!

One of our many photo shoots. Do you do these with your children? So fun:)

And I can't post today with sharing this one of my son Jacks. Mr. Debate guy. He is so intense....

This was the only debate he allowed us to watch this season. He gets so nervous when we're in there and it's important he do well for the judges.

One of best decisions I made this week was keeping a notebook and pen with me. There are always so many thoughts running through my mind...many of them could be used for posts! I was getting so frustrated...I would have an idea then *poof* it would be gone. {i swear...i am getting so old-sigh} Having the notebook has allowed me to write down my thoughts's GREAT! I have 5 posts I'm working on now. If you don't do this yet...give it a try.

Have you tried Pandora yet? PLEASE stop by TODAY!!    You will L O V E IT!!! I found it when we got our Blackberries. It was free so I thought cool. Pandora is this place where you can create your own radio stations!! You just type in a fave artist or song and Pandora finds similar sounding artists and songs and plays them! You can listen on your cell phone or computer. Em and I use it all day long. It's just cool!!!

Just finished reading this...
 You can read about it here.

Now I'm reading this...

Can't wait to get started!! Read about it here. [book photos from]

One more thing!! Remember Phil Stacey from a few seasons back on American Idol?

He has a new song out and I LOVE it!! Keep it on my Pandora Radio. It's called "Inside Out". Be and listen!!

Ok... that's it for today. Have a WOndDeRfuL weekend! I am so GRATEFUL for all my NEW followers this week!! And love all you comments. They truly make my day!!

Be sure and stop by on Monday for "Make My Monday". My featured Blogger is a very creative lady. Her work has been featured in several magazines and on TV. Drop by that interview and check out her blog.

Peace out!
