Friday 5

Happy TGIF my peeps!  Hope you are staying nice and dry and most of all, WARM in this crazy weather. Due to my grandfather's passing a couple of days ago, we are supposed to be driving back home to Arkansas, however, they are having severe winter weather currently, so we're not sure we will be able to make it very far, if at all.  :(   It is just cold and rainy here in Houston.  I really miss home and the snow and ice on days like today where the entire state shuts down and you get to enjoy having a snow day with your family.  How about you?  How is the weather where you live?  Cold and Snowy or Hot and Sunny? :)

Anywho.... it is Friday, so I am linking up once again with Darci and others over at The Good Life for her weekly Friday Five linky party.  Here are my top 5 of the week:


Christmas is my most favorite time of year, which means, I am going to lead this one off with my all-time favorite Christmas movies that I love watching this time of year (in no particular order):

The Holiday

Home Alone I (not as crazy about 2 and 3 - 1 is just a classic)

The Santa Clause (again - prefer the first one most)

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

It's a Wonderful Life

Miracle on 34th Street


Some of my favorite CHRISTmas CD's that I couldn't wait to pull back out this year (again in no particular order):


My new favorite toy that I just LOVE - especially because it was such an AWESOME price (a Black Friday special without having to go out on Black Friday and fight the crowds) - $74.00 at Kohl's on Black Friday (1 p.m. to be exact) - WOOT WOOT!!! 


A few of my new favorite Winter outfits currently on Pinterest are.... Can you say "comfy/cozy"... 


I have been loving this baby now for the last 6 weeks or so - I love making fresh juice - especially green juice - it's so nice and healthy for you and so easy to make.  :)  

Well, as Porky Pig used to say - that's all folks.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!  Please be sure to let me know you were here so I can come visit your blog as well and check out your favorite Friday Five's this week! :)

Lots of love and hugs,


  1. Great selection of movies. My three favourites are probably Elf, A Muppet Christmas Carol and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
