"My Favorite Things" for the Week

Susanne invites us to wrap up the week with our 5 favorite things.  So, if you haven't had time to read my posts this past week, here we go:

1.  The 7th state football championship in 7 years for a total of 12 (tying the Small Town High School with their rival high school for the most in the state)
2.  2 nights out with CH.  Okay, the first was completely an accident, but we made the best of it!
 3.  1 boy home for a month.
4.  Some beautiful sights.

 5.  A surprise from one of my sisters.
 See the scarf around my neck?  My sister made me a Christmas scarf!  An apple pie and now a scarf:  Isn't she the best?

Don't forget about Follow Friday 40 and Over at Java's!


  1. Hello from Follow Friday. Loved your post, especially the 'boy' being home and getting your scarf from your sister. I can associate with that. (not the sister bit - I'm an only child!)
    Have fun
