Friday's Fave Five

Mood: indecisive
Listening to: the news

Yes, call me indecisive. This is the third time I've redecorated my blog in as many days. It's just so easy to do, easier than repainting. And Shabby Blogs has so many cute designs -- all for free!


1.That's one of my five favorite things for this Friday -- fun, free stuff.

2. Another favorite part of my week was a visit from a college friend, Laurie. She was only here for one night, but we managed to pack in lots of visiting, reminiscing and much laughter, during that time.

3. 60-degree days! Blue skies! Sunshine! Need I say more?

4. Dan took me to lunch at The Egg & I on Tuesday.

5. I've connected with several more friends on Facebook this week. Isn't it something? I barely understand how computers work, but I do love how modern technology can make the world a bit smaller and so much more friendly.

Friday's Fave Five is sponsored by Suzanne at Living to the Tell the Story. It's a great way to look back at your week and find the positive.

GOOD MORNING KAREN, AREN'T YOU THE EARLY BIRD. LOVE YOUR FRIDAY'S FAVE FIVE, I AM ON SPACEBOOK, WENT ON ONE TIME, JENNA IS SUCH A BIG HELP TO ME, THANK GOD FOR TEENAGERS. I REALLY DON'T GO ON, I NEED MORE HOURS IN MY DAY.
SOUNDS LIKE YOUR HAVING A HAPPY TIME, YOU AND DAN. YOU NEED THAT ADULT TIME TOGETHER, JUST A CUP OF COFFEE, AND SOME TALK. HAVE A GREAT DAY. LOVE, AUNT RIZ

Okay, so I really like this blog design. It has that feel of the blue skies and sunshine you are enjoying there :)

Becky said...

Great favs!

I also love the free blog decors that are all over the web these days. I have also enjoyed the free Picasa site that lets me play with my own pictures to create headers. They are great time wasters I guess, but they give me great joy.

Have a wonderful, WARM weekend, Karen.

Becky said...

I just got the BIGGEST kick out of your aunt. Spacebook. What a hoot. I love that everyone enjoys the social networking that is available. Ha! I think I love your aunt!

Great fresh design. I don't have the courage yet to change up. I'm still liking my little bird and I'm afraid I won't be able to reinstall him if I want to put him back.

Isn't the sunshine wonderful? I don't think it's reached 60* around here yet. This morning was still 29*F but it is supposedly going reach 54* by this afternoon. Hope so.

The Egg & I sounds fun. I love little lunch dates.

Karyn said...

Thanks for the link for backgrounds. I like the one I have right now, but you never know when a person will want a change!

A viit with an old friend is always one of the best things to happen during the week!

Yay for warmer weather and sunshine!

Karen said...

(Pssst to Aunt Riz: It's FACEbook. I love you so much!)

Beth said...

I love your blog design...I like mine but am bored with it... but I paid money for it so feel guilty!

Spring does make me happy... slowly happens here!

Have a great weekend!

I love your new design. Looks like we have a lot in common, I love fun free stuff, blue skies and sun and 60° days too!

Sounds like a good Friday to me, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

Love the yellow, so sunny and cheery! And hey, women can change their mind any ole time they want!

60 degrees and blue skies, sounds like our weather. How on earth did you manage that up there in the frozen land? You guys aren't having as much snow this winter as the northeast, are you? We've even had snow, twice, which is unheard of!

Sandy said...

Yes connecting with old friends on facebook is a treasure. :) Your visit with your college friend sounds so dear, doesn't feel like time hasn't even passed! :)
Have a good weekend!

Hello Karen,
Love the blog design. It is nice that it is so easy to change things up.
Catching up with friends is great.
There was an Egg and I in Los Angeles years ago...I wonder if it's still there. I think it was by the LaBrea Tar Pits (TMI?)
Have a wonderful weekend...

Blue skies and connecting up with friends! That is a good week. :)

Facebook--love it! 60 degrees--can hardly wait for it. Free--wonderful! You have a great list. And your blog looks adorable. Cute, cute design.

Hi--
My blog decor is in decor transition. I'll be doing some changes this weekend.
We've had some 5o's the last couple of days!

Have a great weekend!

Great FFFs this week. Isn't it great to reconnect with your old friends?

Brenda said...

"The Egg & I" sounds like an interesting place to eat.

I love fun free stuff too. What did you get?

Have a great weekend!

Boy, for someone who claims not to know much about computers, I think you are doing phenomenally well -- esp on FB. That's one place I find bewildering with all the bells and whistles. Glad you enjoyed your visit with a friend. I have so few from the (ancient) past that it's a treat to reconnect. Hope you're enjoying your weekend and that there are more blue skies in your neck o' the woods.

Barbara H. said...

We had some 60-degree days this weekend. Sooo nice.

It's been fun to reconnect with friends on Facebook!

I enjoyed reading your FAVES and looking around your blog. I like the look but don't know what it looked like before. I think about redecorating mine occasionally but never seem to find the time. The puppy is adorable but I remember what living with one is like having done it numerous times in my life. LOL Things DO get better and fur-kids are great company! I don't know what I'd do without Molly. Thanks for dropping by my 'five' at Small Reflections.
Hugs and blessings,

Havent the temps been awesome??? 70's here last week. I love it..not so much on my sinuses...but love to get Miller out to run off energy.

You know maybe you can do a garden this summer with more time in your life...(good time that is) and we can compare them...
