Friday Fave Five #93

Hello everyone. Welcome to another week of FFF. Take a look back over your week and look for those things that were blessings to you and then join in with us. For details you can head over here.

1. This post over at Bungalow '56. Cracked. me. right. up! It's a good thing I had swallowed my coffee. Dana is a Canadian blogger I've just recently met and she has a wonderful sense of humor and takes wonderful pictures. Check out her fun summer post.

2. Our first taste of this year's Cherries from B.C. And it was luscious and juicy and full of sweet goodness! Yum!
3. Shoes. Specifically New Shoes. More specifically: New pink shoes. And even better: New pink shoes that cost next to nothing.

4. Downspout extenders. Okay I know. That is just weird. But this week with it raining cats and dogs those cheap vinyl roll out extenders are saving my sanity. So far, the basement is dry whereas other times I would have had some leakage by now. Hopefully it will continue that way. Keeping my fingers crossed.

5. I left the best for last, and that would be the guy who is making today a day to celebrate by marking with me our 27th anniversary. We've seen lots of mountain tops together and few valleys too, but we've walked it together and here we are 27 years later with a beautiful family and lots of wonderful memories looking towards the future. Happy Anniversary, Sweetie!

What have been your favorites things this week? Do a post and link on up. Please take a moment and make sure you link is working. For some reason a few have not "taken" over the past couple of weeks.

Waaaay cute shoes :-)
I was just down in the south where temps were in the high 90s with very high humidity. Came home to 70s with no humidity. And hear about your cold rains. Rain! No wonder you're thankful for downspout extenders ;-)

Those are some sweet shoes sista! Congrats on 27 years. I saved my best for last on my 5 also.

Melissa said...

Happy anniversary! And hooray for downspout extenders! :) We have a never-ending battle to keep the basement dry, too.

Mary said...

I bought some cherries good!
Really cute shoes, but I'd break my neck if I tried to wear shoes like that!
Happy anniversary!

Hi - I've missed a few weeks of this, but I do enjoy doing it, so I'm back :)

Happy Anniversary - we celebrated our 24th on the 14th.
The cherries look delicious! I love all the fresh fruit in the summertime.

Happy Friday to you!

I don't even like cherries, but that picture makes me one to eat one. ha.

I love your best for last. Happy Anniversary! What a blessing not only to you & your hubby, but also to your family & friends that you have stayed married that long! May God bless you with many more years together.

My favorite part of your post was the pink shoes - does it get any better than that? Course I couldn't walk in them, but I can still love looking at them. :)

Happy Anniversary Susanne!! I'm so glad those extenders have done a good job for you. It's so frustrating to deal with unwanted water in the basement!!
I know you'll enjoy those shoes probably with a great purse, too :0)
Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you have a great anniversary celebration!

Congratulations and Happy Anniversary. Put on those cool pink shoes and celebrate up a storm (but not more rain!) Have a good week.

Happy Anniversary! You've had a lot of rain-- a piece of equipment that works right and does its job is priceless.

I have always wanted pink shoes...maybe some day! Those are cute, though I couldn't do the heels.

That post about the pool is too funny.

I'm glad the extenders are working well.

Happy Anniversary!! Hope you get to do something fun to mark the day.

Happy Anniversary! Hope you get to go out and wear those new, cute shoes!

Dana @ Bungalow'56 said...

Dear Susanne,
Thank you so much for the link. I'm glad our antics make people laugh. You have wonderful followers who have been leaving wonderful comments. Those cherries look great, and I know the wonder of downspouts too. They are a godsend for worriers like me. Also congrats on your anniversary. Exactly ten years ahead of us. Thanks for lighting the way!
Take Care,

Karyn said...

Happy Anniversary! 27 years deserves the best spot on your list, for sure! Hope you had a 'perfect' celebration - whatever that looks like for you.

Pink girlie! :)

Anything to keep the water out of the basement is worthy of the FFF list!

Bev said...

You go with the pink shoes - cute, cute! And Happy Anniversary too.

Sorry to be late yet again, but life's been busy. I have been enjoying delicious organic cherries and strawberries all week ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Karen said...

Just getting caught up on my favorite blogs. Happy Anniversary! It's such a great feeling to be looking forward to the future with your soul mate at your side. (My Sweetie -- and yes, I call him that, so here you & I go again -- and I have been together 26 years.)

I'm off to check out Bungalow '56, after getting caught up with your other posts.

Marg said...

It was good to stop by and check out what's happening. Those BC cherries are looking fantastic...and I can't wait to buy some...I had some from California last week.
I hope to join up soon again.

April said...

Love the idea of Friday's Fave 5 - a good chance for all of us to reflect on the week. Will start mine this Friday. :-)
