Friday's Fave Five #35


It's Friday's Fave Five time! I'm looking forward to all your favorite things from your week. If you are new, hop on board. Details are here.
Starting off my favorite things from my week is:
1. Pictures. Our family pictures from our photo session a few weeks ago. We got the disc and it was so much fun looking through all the shots my friend took of us. She's just learning and I thought she did a pretty darn good job for someone who's still taking courses. It's going to be tough picking just one favorite to get made into a portrait.
2. A cup of white chocolate mocha coffee hand delivered by a friend. My best girlfriend dropped by out of the blue holding my fave coffee from Starbucks in her hand. It was such a treat. I haven't seen her in a long time. We had a really nice, if way too quick of a vist.
3. Sunshine. Today we have sunshine. Never underestimate the mood changing powers of the yellow ball in the sky. I just want to sit outside in it all. day. long!
4. Stanley Cup Playoffs. I grew up with hockey. While I didn't have any brothers who were involved in the sport, my Dad did used to watch it on TV. And he used to get tickets to a lot of the games of the local club. Later on, I had a family I babysat for that would take me to games if I took care of the kids at the game. I've always enjoyed a good, competive game. Nowadays, I don't usually watch hockey during the regular season, but I do really like to watch the playoffs. So I've gotten in some really good games during this last couple of weeks. Unfortunately, my hubby hates hockey. With a passion. LOL. So he's been a real sweetheart letting me watch 2 or 3 games a week. Thanks, Sweetie.
5. Fridays. I love Fridays. Weekend's around the corner. Yipee!
What are your favorites from the week? If you've done a post on Fave Five then link up with Mr. Linky so we can come and visit you. Please make sure you link to the specific post and not your home page so that it makes it easier for those folks who like to leisurely go through the list on the weekend. Happy Friday, everyone!

Thank you for hosting this. It is wonderful to reflect.

Thom said...

I can't say I'm very much into hockey...but I'm glad you got to watch it. I'll be anxious to see the family photo...and yes Friday is great...Great list :)

Kari said...

Nice list Susanne. Love the friend dropping by out of the blue - a true friend in deed.
I also like sunshine with a little bit of breeze though. Right now we just have a lot of sunshine and not enough breeze. But after all the snow you're getting yes sunshine would be on my list too!!
Happy Friday and Have a great weekend.

The Correspondent said...

Number 2 is my favorite, I think. Although numbers 3 and 5 are pretty awesome,too!

I've only been to one hockey game in my life, and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it!

I enjoyed your list, Susanne!

How lovely to get nice family photos made, Susanne :-) My mom just told me a horror story of disappointing photos and exorbitant prices... (which she eventually got refunded). And congrats on getting some sunshine if only a little bit :-)

I'm so glad you got some sunshine. It really is a "pick me up"! Enjoy your hockey and coffee and weekend Susanne!! Blessings....

Barbara H. said...

I do know what you mean about the effects of sunshine, especially when ti has been cold or overcast for a long time. I'm glad you finally got some and hope you get much more!!

I'm not a hockey fan, but I understand. When we lived outside Atlanta, we never got into the Braves games much unless they were in the playoffs, and it was exciting.

So glad your pictures turned out nicely! We need to get one taken before our middle one leaves the nest this summer (sniff, sniff...)

I love Fridays, too!

Linda said...

Another great Five! A visit from a friend bearing fancy coffee - priceless!
I do love the sunshine too. There is certainly an abundance of it here. When we lived up north, I longed to see it more often.
My husband is a hockey fan too. He usually just watches the play-offs because it doesn't get much coverage here in the south during the regular season :-)
Have a sunshiny weekend Susanne.

Brenda said...

Sunshine is a great mood booster for me as well. Although it looks like rain is coming for my part of the world this weekend.

Jerralea said...

So glad your friend dropped by! That's always fun.

And I share your sentiments about sunshine. I just feel better when the big yellow ball is in the sky!

Islandsparrow said...

I'm with you on sunshine - I sat out on my chair this week and basked. it lifts the spirits - especially of Canadians :)

Islandsparrow said...

and hockey does too - of course!

that is - unless you're a Toronto Maple Leaf fan - like my dh ...

Marg said...

Yea Canucks Go! I ditto that.
Enjoy the sun...It's the same out here. Isn't if fun when you find some good family photo shots?
Have a wonderful weekend.

Angie said...

Isn't is amazing what a mood lifter the sun can be?

I love Fridays too. :)

Faith said...

OH wow...that coffee sounds delish! I've never had that flavor!! My list is finally up!!

Jientje said...

You've had a great week, and it almost looks like the nice weather we had today is a universal thing!
That white chocolate mocha flavoured coffee makes me drool, that sounds so delicious!!
I hope you'll have a great weekend and lots and los of sun!!
My post is up, I'm late but that's because I posted twice today, I did not want to miss out on Fave Five either, so!

Becky said...

Another great list. And I think it is just right that two of your favorites this week are sunshine and the Stanley cup playoffs. We certainly do live in different parts of the world :)

The Blackwood Bonanza said...

Pictures are my favorite! And this reminds me I have tons I need to download off of the camera. Have a great weekend!

Karen said...

The white chocolate mocha sounds divine! It's fun being passionate about a sport, isn't it? I'm a 'late bloomer' to being a baseball fan, but I do love it!

Hope to get some Friday favs up today. I have missed doing them. It's a good exercise in gratitude.

Liz said...

Oh, how wonderful to have a family portrait. I keep thinking we're going to do that... maybe 2009 is the year! Thanks for hosting, this is my first Mr. Linky and was just the thing for today's post!

Karyn said...

Nothing beats a good hockey game!

will you be posting any of the photos from your family photo shoot?

Sandra said...

Loved your list Susanne, it all made me smile :)

FlipFlop Mom said...

I'm jealous..I WANT your friends... tee hee!!!!

the voice of melody said...

What a nice treat it must have been to get this white chocolate mocha latte from your friend. The name of the drink alone makes me want to go get one now! :)
