Friday's Fave Five #13

It's Friday today and time to reflect upon our favorite things from our last week. If you're new here this is what it's all about. Please feel welcome to join in and don't forget to sign Mr. Linky if you've done a Fave Five post.



1. A nice large mug of Hot Apple Cider. Specifically this Apple Cinnamon Cider. Oh my. The aroma. The taste. It tastes just like my Godmom's homemade apple pies. Which in itself brings back wonderful memories. I'm enjoying a big hot mug right now. MMMM, MMMM! In fact, if I must say all these guys ciders and products are absolutely delish!




2. The colors of fall. I've really been enjoying the fall colors. I love the coziness and beauty of them.




3. Pajama day last week. What fun we had. The kids loved it. From wearing their pajamas to making the koolaid popcorn to having pancakes to watching a movie. They are still talking about it a week later.

4. The hug of a toddler. A little guy in my dayhome is just going to be turning two and he gives the best hugs. It melts the heart as he wraps his little arms around me.


5. Pumpkin pecan cupcakes. Yummy. Another wonderful fall treat. And super easy. Just take a box of butter pecan cake mix, add 1 cup canned pumpkin along with the rest of the ingrediants as listed on the box. Sprinkle chopped pecans and chocolate chips on the top and bake as directed.

So what are your favorite things from your week? Do a post and let us know. We'd love to come and read.

I'm loving the fall colours too - although soon it will be time to think of green and red :) to go along with all the white!

I'm adding Apple Cider mix to grocery list - I wish I had some right now.

There's nothing sweeter than a hug from toddler!

I've been loving the fall colors, too, and savoring them since some of the trees are already losing a lot of leaves. I have a hard time with the barrenness of winter, so I like to shore of all the color of the season to hold me over til spring.

I don't drink cider often, but every now and then a good cup of it really hits the spot.

Those pumpkin muffins sound wonderful,and so easy!

Becky said...

I wish we had fall colors where I live. And I love your pajama day.

Tracie said...

That cider looks so yummy. It's not quiet cold enough here in Texas for yummy cider or peppermint mocha.

Heather Smith said...

I'm reading the other posters favorite things and the one thing many of us have in common is....
PUMPKIN!

Many ladies made pumpkin muffins or bread, and I got an excellent deal on a pumpkin pie at the store. YUM! I love fall!
