Friday Favorites

Such a good week!  Here's some good stuff that blessed my days. . .

1.  Watching re-runs of Reba.  It is such a funny show and my kids laugh at how hard  laugh.  Laughter.  Good stuff.

2.  A new table runner for my kitchen.
 
3.  My kids' orthodontist.  He is one of the most generous, kind individuals, and my kids think he's "chill."  Yesterday evening, he met us at his office to fix  a broken wire that was digging into my daughter's mouth.  On his own time.  He gives so much to our community and to our church.  Just a good man.

4.  Last night, we had to close all the windows, because it is so cold outside.  Fall is here.

5.  Pizza.  It always seems like a party when we have pizza for supper.  I'm happy, because I don't have to cook.  The kids are happy, because they love pizza.  DH is happy, because I'm happy.  And it's one of the rare times that we eat supper in front of the t.v.

How was your week?  If you'd like to join in on Friday Fave Five, check in with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.

We also have one Pizza supper in the week it's on tuesdays, because it's cleaning day and I don't want to spoil the kitchen at least for one day !

Oh I love Reba! I'm not sure who makes me laugh more, Van or Barbara Jean? And eating pizza while watching it would make me very happy, LOL.

I'm a sucker for table runners! I know how fun getting a new one is.

Those broken wires HURT! How lovely to have an orthodontist who gives much to your family as well as to the community and church.

Sounds like you like the Fall weather, Karen. Me, too, especially getting bundled up in sweaters.

You are soooo right, pizza does bring a festive mood to any meal. We had a potluck the other night and I brought store bought pizza. It might have looked out-of-place next to those homemade dishes, but it didn't TASTE out-of-place!

Have a lovely week.

Don't you just love it when someone laughs so hard it becomes contagious, and everyone laughs too? What a good week, enjoy these Fall days!

Carrie said...

Laughter is always good, yes indeed!

I LOVE the new table runner! Love it!

Now just don't drip any pizza sauce on it! =)

Enjoy the weekend!

I love that table runner. We're having pizza tonight -- party! (Even though it's just the two of us, it's so much easier...a great way to celebrate Friday!)

Hope you have a great week ahead.

Susanne said...

Yup, pizza is my favorite meal. Love the table runner and the colors in it. I'll bet it really looks great on your table.

Karyn said...

Great table runner!

Pizza nights are universally favorites I think - for all the reasons you listed.

Re-runs of good TV (rare tho it is) are great! Especially when they make you laugh. I love it that your kids enjoy watching you laugh.

Oh, that runner is fabulous! So full of color and life. How nice to have good doctors for your kids.
