1/23/09 -- Friday Favorite Five

1) The ecstatic look on my children's faces when I surprise them with bringing home Mcdonald's hot fudge sundaes! I WISH I would've had my camera in my hand when I walked in the door last Friday night. I had met Bob for happy hour and ordered the kids a pizza. On the way home, we stopped by McDonald's and picked up the ice cream as a thank you for letting mommy escape for 2 hours. Even Bobby's face lit up with excitement over ice cream. You'd think they never get it. It's good to be a kid, huh? It's the little things that make us happy.
2) My Zune -- I got it for my b-day last year, and have enjoyed listening to it. Alex got one for Christmas this year, and now I enjoy it even more because he and I have been having a good time sending each other songs. (Is it ok for my 9 year old to like Katie Perry? "She's hot and she's cold...")

3) Anniversaries -- Bob and I are celebrating our 21st anniversary of our first date! Bob took me to a basketball game and pizza --go figure! Perfect for our first date! I've loved this man for 21 years! Amazing!Bob and I at our Senior Prom -- 1988. Weren't we adorable! So in love...Bob's senior picture.My Senior picture.

4) Sunshine -- I miss the sun! We had it for a few days at the beginning of the week, but it's gone. Who knows when it will be back? But when it is here, I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! In this household, I am known as the "Sun Princess". All I can say is that I can't wait for my trip to CA in two weeks so that I can soak up as much sun as I can!

5) My girlfriends -- speaking of beach trip, I can't wait to see them! It's all we can talk about now -- what we're bringing, who's driving, who's picking me up from the airport (Thanks Denise!), if we'll get massages, how much scrapbooking we'll do, etc. My girlfriend's are so awesome! I think this year I won't have to bring hardly anything to the beach except my pictures, pages, and adhesive! Woo hoo! Love you gals!

I have an extra one today:

6) Employment -- I thank God my husband was spared yesterday from the layoffs!

What's your five?


  1. LOVE them all LIS!
    Wow- those are some serious blasts from the past!

  2. I swear you and Bob look the same...for the most part. I love the fact that you celebrate the anniversary of your 1st date! I want to make it known that I read your blog on a regular basis thank you very much.

  3. Great FFF...! Thanks for sharing! LOVE the senior pics of you and Bob - the 80's were SO cool!

  4. I love your blog! The pictures of you and Bob brought back many pleasant memories. Did you save any ice cream for Grammie?

  5. I LOVE the old school pics.. You two are so cute! I am glad your hubby still has a job, it is tough market right now.
    Can't wait to see you in a few weeks. I am sooooo excited! Hey, we had funeral potatoes at my gram's funeral yesterday & I thought of all of the beach girls -LOL! One year we will have to make them for you girls! They are really good & maybe we will just have to refer to them as cheesy potatoes :).Have a great Sunday!
