Friday's Fave Five #34


Good Morning, everyone! Welcome to Friday's Fave Five. It's nice to have you join us again. If you are new here jump right in. If you need details, you can go here for that.
1. Nice spring weather. Yes I know that I am writing that even as we have a bunch of snow on the ground and it's below freezing right now. But the beginning of the week was so gorgeous I just have to say it was making the favorites list. Walks and picnics, working in the flower bed all was so nice until the weather we shall not speak of hit yesterday.
2. Firing up the grill. Yummy definitely makes my favorites list. I love bar-b-queing. And even more I love eating bar-b-que.
3. Hand Lotions. I love hand lotions. I have various kinds at various places all over the house. It's just really nice to reach for a bottle and give my dry hands a boost of moisture and bonus, add a nice smell all at the same time.
4. Family movie nights. I love sitting with the whole family and watching a good movie. Although it's getting harder and harder to find movies that suit us a whole family. When we do find one, it's a really nice night to spend together.
5. Pizza night. Even though I love to cook, I do enjoy those nights when I can order in from our favorite pizza place and order my favorites. This usually happens in conjunction with a family movie night. Bonus!
So what were your favorites. Let us know. If you've done a Fave Five post, don't forget to link up so that we can come and visit you!

I like your #5, Susanne. Sometimes it's just nice to have a break from cooking and preparing. Have a great weekend!

I can't believe all the snow! I am so loving the spring weather, too. My husband is the master griller in our house, and I love it when he grills. He does a great job.

I am thankful for lotions. Without them I'd be just a pile of flakes.

We love pizza and movie nights, too. Funny how those two just seem to go together!

We just moved from an apartment, so it's been a while since we've been able to grill at home, and I am looking forward to that!

We LOVE the family movie nights and we usually have pizza also! It's such a nice, relaxing family time!

BTW, Wow those snow pictures were hard to look at. :)

Great 5 Susanne. It always is so much fun to fire up the old barby again. Glad you had some family nights, too. Hope that snow stays away till next winter now!!

Jerralea said...

All your favorites are my favorites, too! Sorry about the snow, hopefully that will be the last one for the season!

I love hand lotion and lip gloss/chapstick and need to have it all over my house and in all of my purses.

Sounds like a good week :)

Marg said...

It's enjoyable to enjoy the wonderful things that spring brings about. I like firing up the BBQ.
I can smell the steaks grilling.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Becky said...

I am a hand lotion snob myself. I love them, but only certain ones. I like to buy new ones and try them out. Great favorites this week!!

Have a wonderful WARM spring weekend.

Willow said...

BBQ! Yes, it means that The Professor is cooking! I love that!

Family pizza and movie nights are the best!

Thom said...

Wonderful FFF. Number 5 is great and also. This is such a springy FFF this week. Excellent :)

Kari said...

I like your list. Especially family nights and pizza nights. They are a hit here.

Have a great weekend.

Picnics and spring weather - and not to mention pizza - You're hitting all my favourites Suzanne! Hoping "that which cannot be named" disappears soon :)

Faith said...

ok I don't know what I'm doing wrong but lately I've had trouble linking my post to your site. If you know how to fix it, feel free! and so sorry about that!
I LOVE firing up the grill and tonite will be our first dinner cooked on the grill since early november! YEAH!!
My list is up !

Karyn said...

Yes, the beautiful spring weather was a blessing earlier in the week. We did not get snow until this morning - and not nearly as much as you...but it is cold. Hope this is the last winter blast!

I also have hand lotions all over the house! I love the way they make my hands feel as if they've had a drink.

Jientje said...

My hubs and I have a pizza day on Fridays sometimes too when we go for a pizza buffet at Pizza Hut at noon. I enjoy that very much!! And the weather, is one of my weekly topics as well, as you probably know!! I hope your next week is even better than this one!

I couldn't agree with you more on the hand lotions! My new favorite is the Johnson's softlotion 24 Hour Moisturizer.

Brook said...

I can't believe the weather changes you have. We almost comment about the changes here in the midwest, but I think you have us beat!

What movie did you end up watching?

The Correspondent said...

Great list, Susanne!

I included Family Movie Night on my list this week as well (and we often have pizza on these evenings)!
