Friday's Favorite Five

Time for another edition of Fridays Fave 5, hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.

Here are my 5 favorite things from this week:

1. 3-D sonogram pictures of my best friend's (Vickie) daughter's (Ashley) baby, Kaylee. A-mazing! She's due 5/13 and I can't wait to meet her!

2. Dinner at Vickie's. We just had leftovers, but it's always nice to get together. We had coffee and dessert, too!

3. The launch of my organization's new website! Love it.

4. Lunch out twice this week with friends.

5. Getting together with friends to scrapbook. That will be tonight. It's always fun!

Head over to Susanne's to see the other participants!

Friday's Fave Five

5 Favorite things from this week:
1. Dinner at Panera with CM team. We had a fun time and the food is always yummy there!
2. Being able to help Mom out with laundry while she recupes from knee surgery. And then having dinner with Mom, Dad, Maim, and Tommy when I deliver the laundry! Mom made chicken stir fry.
3. Getting all warm and cozy under the covers. It's been cold here this week. And even though it's tough to get out of the warmness in the morning, I'm grateful to have enough blankets to keep warm and to have a job to go to each day.
4. Spur-of-the-moment plans to go out to lunch with a colleague. We enjoyed delicious chicken salad wraps and good conversation.
5. Love sipping hot coffee in the morning! I'm doing that now, but I need a refill!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

The Simple Woman's Daybook

I've seen several blogging women participate in this over the weeks and thought I'd give it a try

FOR TODAY - January 12, 2009
Outside my window...The sun is trying to peek through
I am thinking...I hope it doesn't cost a lot when I take my car in this afternoon for the ' service engine soon' light that came on this weekend.
I am thankful job. I started there as a secretary at age 19 and almost 24 years later, I am now VP.
From the kitchen...just coffee and a bagel for breakfast; packing my lunch; and dinner out this evening.
I am pajamas. Need to get showered and dressed soon!
I am organized home. It is a process!
I am work, then taking my car to the shop, grabbing something for dinner, followed by a Stewardship Committee meeting.
I am reading...The Redemption of Sarah Cain
I am hoping...this week isn't too busy.
I am hearing...the radio
Around the house...the organizing process!
One of my favorite coffee in the morning
A few plans for the rest of the week: working all week. Tuesday - dinner at Panera with Creative Memories team; Wednesday - small group; Thursday - nothing planned! Friday - scrapbooking with friends.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
My almost 95-year-old grandmother with my Dad (her son) on New Year's Day. She had a very mild stroke a couple months ago and has been living with my parents. My Mom takes very good care of her - Mom didn't want to put her in a nursing home. She can't live by herself anymore so this is an adjustment for everyone, but it's working out!
