Friday's Fave Five #39

Welcome, welcome. It's Friday so it's time for Fave Five. I'm looking forward to all your favorites from the week. I could use me a bit of encouragement and making my own list and then reading all yours always uplifts me. So let's get right to it. If you're new, you can go here to get the details.

1. This youtube video cracks me right up.




2. The garden is in! Yipee, it was beautiful weather this week and I finally got to get all the flowers planted. I always feel really good when this is done.

3. Maple walnut ice cream. Haven't had it in years. Had it this week. 'Nuff said.

4. Pineapple Daiquiri Cooling Foot Creme. Love this stuff from Beauti Control. I don't even know if they make it anymore but I sure am love the tube that I have. It smells sooo good and actually leaves your feet feeling cool. Very nice.

5. Open windows at night time. The weather has been nice enough through the night that we can actually leave a couple of windows open just a little bit. There is something about fresh air that just makes me sleep better.

6. I'm breaking the rules just this once and adding an extra one today. And if you know me and my rule following tendencies, you will know the reason has got to be pretty extra special. And it is. The opportunity to do this giveaway has me thrilled. Please click on over to this post and have a peek and enter the draw for a CD. Leaving a comment will get you entered. And there is a way to get 3 extra entries in too!

That video is hilarious! And the mom singing is so funny. She chose a great song, too. I don't know if you plan this or not, but your writing always has a lot of sensory detail in it, which is really cool.

I use a cucumber foot creme. I love it as well. I have never heard of your creme...I'm always looking for new product. I love to take care of my feet. great list btw.....dont you just love gardens!

Beth said...

I love Maple Nut ice cream...even as a kid... My dad loved Maple so much he would use maple syrup as an ice cream topping!

Our Family Is His said...

I did my own list, video edition. Then I came here and saw your #1 slot was a video. Hehehehe. And, I almost posted that exact video, but my #5 beat it out.

So glad your garden is ready for enjoyment! It is nice to be able to sleep with the windows open for a change. I'll have to go back and watch that you-tube now :0)

Tina Leigh said...

I came by way of Jen at A Good Cup of Coffee. I have always enjoyed these Friday posts & thought I would give it a shot!

Barbara H. said...

That video is too cute! Glad you got your garden in! Work on our flower beds is waiting for my husband to finish painting -- and he's been waiting for it to stop raining and for the schedule to clear.

We don't open windows now because some of us have allergies, but we had one house when I was a teen that got a really nice cross breeze when we opened the windows. I loved it.

annie said...

Great list! I posted one too.

Jerralea said...

Love your list. I love to sleep by an open window especially if there is a breeze. I need me some of that pineapple daiquiri foot creme!

Oops, I forgot to check out the link about the giveaway. I'll go do that right now. Thanks for sharing!

Okay, okay, so I'm way behind on planting my flowers this year. ;-) Glad you got yours done! Now you can enjoy blooms while I'll be looking at weeds. ha. Maybe this weekend...

Love the video - that's hilarious!

Congrats on the garden in - ours is half in. We hope to finish it this evening.

Happy weekend Suzanne!

Laura said...

I've just started leaving my window open again as well although last night I had to close it because the rain coming down was so loud!

So did you have to take some more script (other than the header script) out to get Mr. Linky to work? I've got to figure it out before Sunday.

Melanie @ This Ain't New York said...

Going to watch the pig video now...

Barbie @ Mamaology said...

That pig video is sooo cute:):)!

I love open windows at night too and a planted garden:).

Enjoy your weekend.

Kari said...

Hi Susanne,
Life's been busy this week so didn't get my fave five in (and now it's sunday-but i'll be back next week)
But I liked your list. Gardening, ice cream and fresh air oh and a little laughter - you did have a great week.
Have a great weekend!!

Maple walnut ice cream... it's been years for me too! It's one of those ice cream flavors like butter pecan. I go years without it and then out of the blue, I have it and wonder why I stayed away so long.

Thanks for sharing your list, I must join in one day soon. :)

Barb said...

Oh my gosh, dalmation pigs! I almost fell out of my chair laughing at their ears. LOL

How on earth do you find these great videos!

Beck said...

I hope that you're happier now.

It certainly hasn't been warm enough here to have open windows at night! We've been going below freezing EVERY night and only going up to about 8 during the day!
