Friday favorites


Some highlights from my week:

Talking on the phone with Pamela for an hour.  Joe came home for lunch and we were on the phone.  He left to go back to work and we were still talking.  He shook his head in amazement, but he wasn't surprised.

St. Patrick's Day dinner with Matt and Lois and Auntie Ann.  And Tommy:)  Sitting around the table, telling and retelling old stories, laughing our socks off.

Getting a free, department store makeover today with Emily.

Spring Break!  Slept in this morning and stayed in my pj's for a while.  Emily's break starts today and Luke's starts on Monday.  We're doing a "staycation" and Dan will take the week off.

My dogs.  They always greet me with big grins and tails wagging.  It's cliche, I know, but it's a blessing all the same.

How was your week?  Join us at Susanne's for Friday's Fave Five.

You and Pamela must have had a lot to talk about! Ha. That’s wonderful. What did people do before phones and technology?

I’ve never done a makeover but I think it would be fun. I’d have to work up courage first. Staycations can be wonderful. Enjoy!

It's fun to talk on the phone sometimes. (SOMEtimes.) I'm not a phone person normally but there are a few people I really enjoy conversing with in that way.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Karen,
I love your Friday favorites, it makes me feel like I am sharing your week with you. We are staying home for spring break, which is in one week. I think I will take a couple of days off to enjoy it more.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Meredith

Isn't Spring Break the best?!
And I love your Irish prayer below, too.

Hope you have a great week ahead!

My dog brings me such joy too! He's definitely a part of the family.~ I've been on a staycation too. Love sleepin' in a bit! Have another good week!

Brenda said...

Its fun to have a friend that you can talk to forever, and a husband that is patient with that!

Enjoy spring break!

Susanne said...

I'll bet me and you could talk on the phone forever too, seeing as we are long lost twins and all. :v)

My dog greeting me in the morning is definitely one of the pleasures of owning a dog.

Enjoy your staycation. I'm trying not to be jealous of all you girls who get spring break. I would definitely love one right about now.

Our spring break was week before last -- it was hard to get back into the routine especially with the time change last week!

I've read friends with whom I could easily spend an hour on the phone. We don't do it so much any more, though.

I would LOVE a free makeover!

Leslie said...

That sure is a great five!!!!! Have a fantastic week!!!!

Jackie said...

Sounds like a nice week. Our spring break is next week and we're having a staycation too. Sounds like a great idea to me! I have a few friends who I could spend an hour on the phone with...LOL!
