Friday's Fave Five

A look back at the best of this week, in bullet form:

*  Celebrating my son's birthday with family.  I love having a houseful of my favorite people.

*  Cooler temps and not running the air conditioning.  Open windows! 

*  Lunch with a friend on Thursday at Noodles & Co :P

*  Our town's own version of Dancing With the Stars.  Wonderful performances and they raised lots of money for charity.  Local celebs dancing with instructors from our very own dance studios.  Restaurants donated appetizers.  Other local celebs were the judges.  Such fun!

*  This quote:  Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were.  (Cherie Carter-Scott, author).

Great stuff. Open windows are one of my very favorite things too ... and parties of any kind, especially with loved ones around. Have a happy weekend, Karen.

Great for your town to raise money and what a fun way to do it.

The noise of a house full is a celebration, happy b'day to your son.

Hurray to the cooler weather soon we will be complaining of the cold.

Open windows - oh yes! While I live in New England we had a really hot summer. I'm loving the fall temps! Stopping by from Friday's Fave Five. ;-)

Your town has its own version of dancing with the stars? How fun!

Noodles and Co. sounds like a fun place to lunch.

That is a great quote and so true!

The local Dancing with the Stars is an awesome idea to raise money for charity. How fun.

Being with family is the best!
