Friday's Fave Five #42



Welcome to Fave Five. Another week gone by already. I could hardly believe that it's already late Thursday evening. Already another chance to look back and find the nice things over the week. If you're new you can get details here. Then just jump in! Thank you all you regular posters. You're posts on your favorites have been such a blessing!


A busy, busy week this last week. Lots to look back over but these were my top 5 favorites.


1. 26 years together with my favorite man, my hubby. Thursday was our 26th Anniversary. I can hardly believe that. Happy Anniversary, Sweetie. Here's to at least 26 more!


2. Graduation. Not a big grade 12 grad, but a big enough one. My youngest has graduated junior high (grade 9). That means I am no longer a mom of anyone younger than high school. Wow. I can't believe I just typed that sentence. Congrats, Tia! You looked beautiful for your celebrations.

3. Iced Coffee. Specifically, iced coffee I can make at home. Goodbye hot coffee in the afternoons. A nice tall glass of iced coffee at about 1:30 when all is silent during quiet time is worth it's weight in gold!

4. Fresh Fruit. Yummy, for all the fresh fruit that is in season lately. We've been enjoying an especially delicious batch of gala apples, and sweet cantaloupes and really tasty red grapes.

5. Vacuum cleaners. After the Father's Day crafting mess, I am very happy and grateful for my vacuum cleaner. Beats beating rugs with tennis racket!

What are your favorites this week? I'd love to hear (read). If you've done a post, please click on the Mr. Linky icon and join in. Just a reminder to link to the specific post that you want us to go to. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Happy Anniversary, Susanne and Hubby! 26 years is a true accomplishment these days. Wishing you 26 more happy years.

Congrats to your littlest girl, too. And save some iced coffee for me!

Fantastic Friday faves! Congrats on 26 years!

Thom said...

Happy Anniversary...dang...I wish I would have known earlier...it would have been up on my blog. Anyway, Happy Anniversary. Great FFF. LOL...beating a rug with a tennis racket too funny

Pamela said...

Happy Anniversary! What a great list - iced coffee (or coffee milk) as they call it here, is the state drink of Rhode Island and it certainly is delicious on a warm day. Please send me an e-mail with your address and I'll send you a bottle - you mix it with milk (skim, 2% or whole) and then enjoy!

Chatty Kelly said...

Wow - happy anniversary! That is a blessing.

Your daughter is beautiful! Congrats on her achievements.

Finally, I love iced coffee!

Hi Susanne! I'm a first timer to FFF this week! Happy Anniversary to you and your beloved! And congrats to Baby Girl! I am with you on that iced coffee thing. I use a broom handle to beat my rugs... hehehe!

Barbara H. said...

Happy Anniversary! May you have at least 26 more wonderful years together! And congratulations to Tia! I know how you feel. My youngest just completed his first year of high school. I am not going to think about how fast the next three years will fly.....

Islandsparrow said...

Two wonderful celebrations this week - congratulations on 26 years together and also to beautiful Tia on her Jr High graduation!

Happy weekend Suzanne - hope you have time to sit and relax with your iced coffee (I have to learn how to make that) and munch on some delicious fruit. Thanks for the suggestion - iced coffee and fresh fruit fit in my pre-wedding knock off 10 pounds plan :)

nikkipolani said...

Well, well! Congratulations on your anniversary, Susanne! And to your graduate as well. Wonderful FFF!

Brenda said...

shopannies said...

Kari said...

WOW - 26 years. How awesome is that? Congratulations to you and your husband!! I am inspired.

I love fresh fruit and iced coffee too. Garfae yen as we like to say in Thailand.

Have a happy Friday and a great weekend.

Sandy@ Jesus and Dark Chocolate said...

Happy Anniversary! We celebrated 20 years on the 17th. :)
Oh and the fresh fruit is great! I LOVE fresh fruit and since I live in farm country there is A LOT this time of year! :)

Hazel said...

Hello Susanne, I'm joining FFF for the first time today. This is a delightful meme.

May I wish you and your hubby a happy anniversary and congratulations to your lovely daughter.

Lisa notes... said...

26 years is a fantastic testimony! Congratulations!

I've had such fun doing my Fave Fives this week. Thank you so much for inspiring us to count our blessings in a big way at least once each week.

May you have 26 more years of growing and learning and laughing with your husband.

Jerralea said...

Congratulations on 26 years! May you have many more together.

I understand how you feel - it was strange for me when my youngest went to high school! Tia looks lovely in her picture.

michele said...

Two big events this week- congrats on both!

I'm with you on the fresh fruit- could make that my complete diet during the summer- or any time, for that matter.

Thanks for the welcome and comments on my blog. I really enjoyed participating in this- gave me a chance to look back and thank God for a great week!

Have a wonderful blessed weekend!

Brook said...

Happy Anniversary! What a beautiful young lady you have. :) I think I'll go find myself an iced coffee...thanks for the suggestion! BTW, how do you make yours?

Karyn said...

Happy Anniversary! And congrats to the graduate!

fresh fruit is a blessing, for sure!

Laura said...

Ahh your daughter is beautiful! She looks so much like you. Happy Anniversary as well, wow what's your secret?!

Mountain Mama said...

Congratulations to you & Hubby and a happy anniversary!
Also congrat's to Tia. She is a sweet looking girl.

I like iced coffee too, but like iced mocha better. I make my own too.I cringe at the idea of paying $5. or more for a coffee at those little cofee shacks.

Donnetta said...

WOW! There's been some celebrating going on at your house. Happy Anniversary and graduation to highschool for your daughter.

YUM... iced coffee. Care to share the recipe you are using? It sounds absolutely delightful!

Gombojav Tribe said...

Happy Anniversary!! Care to share some marriage advice with those of us still under 10 years of marriage? We're all ears! (or eyes, because it's a blog after all.)

Barb said...

Happy anniversary, Susanne. Wishing you 26 more. And congratulations to Tia too. Wow, she looks all grown up. It's a big thing, a big step forward, from middle school to high school. I'll bet she's excited and I'll bet you are too.

Iced coffee is one of my favorite things about summer. :-)

As always, this is just a great list of nice things about your week.

Hazel said...

Hi Susanne, thanks for visiting my FFF entry. I saw your comment but accidentally clicked reject instead of publish. It went off with Gombojav Tribe's comment. I am upset for being clumsy.

Anyway I appreciate your thoughts on the off-key happy birthday singers on my street :-) Til next week.

Faith said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!! ours is June 30 and we're celebrating 19 years. with our children. on vacation in Acadia National Park. but...it'll be fun.

thanks for your nice comments on my Fave five list. haven't been on the blog much but will do more this summer once we're back from maine.

And crystal light is the only "fake" sugar drink I like. like you I avoid soda pop now.....love coke with lime but...SOOOO bad for us. I wish I could convince my oldest not to drink so much when she is at parties...sigh.

Loved your list especially the pic of your gorgeous girl and ICED COFFEE...yeah...one of my fave summer drinks!
enjoy the weekend.

Finding Pam said...

Susanne, can you believe how fast our children grow up into lovely young adults.

Time does fly when you have been married that long. Happy Anniversary and here's to many more.

I loved your favs this week. I think iced coffee sounds grand and all that fresh fruit.

Hazel said...

Hello Susanne, I got it! This time I was more careful. I appreciate your giving it another shot. Thank you very much!

Megs said...

Happy Anniversary, Susanne! 26 -how fun! I'm only working up to #6... plenty more to go! :)

And thanks for mentioning iced coffee - on my way to a meeting, I stopped by and had an iced chai tea (one of my favorite summer delights!). I always forget how much I love them until the first one of the season - so thanks for the reminder! :)

FlipFlop Mom said...
