Five For Friday

Good Friday morning to you.  My daughter Gennifer and I have a friend named Janna, who blogs here:
Denim and Dandelions   She is going to start hosting a Five For Friday Linky party beginning next week.  I thought I would play today.   Go say hi to Janna and check out her cute style.
Five things I am loving about this week, or October in general are:
Numero Uno:   I am loving this rain and cooler weather we are having here where I live in Southern California.  I pulled out my jeggings, and my long sleeves.  Wore socks in the house because my feet were cold.  Got my long sleeved jammies out.  Even thought about putting another blanket on the bed.
 Numero Dos:  I love that I waited for the first cold and dreary day to have my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season.  I enjoyed it to the very last drop, and wished I had gotten the biggest one!
Numero Tres:  I am loving that my kitchen is turning out homestyle meals all week long that are both comforting and make my house smell so cozy.
 Numero Quatro:  I am loving that this weather is making me feel like stitching up a storm.
Numero Cinco: Getting to snuggle up underneath my new fall throw, and seeing quilts spread out on the sofa in the family room.  
 I love Fall!!!  Happy Friday everyone!

So many things to love this week! We had a taste of cooler weather... then it seemed like summer came back. lol But it should be 'fall like' soon. Can not wait! How perfect to wait until that first cold day for a special pumpkin spice latte. Love that! Quilts on the sofa... that is the best! :)

Janna is just so cute and fun. Looking forward to this. Love your number 5's. Our weather has been perfect for the past two days. 55 degrees on the pation this morning. High in the 70's. What's not to love?

Hi Kris, Thanks for sharing Jana's blog with us.
For your five things-wow, long sleeved jammies? Even in the dead of winter here, with snow on the ground, I still wear a just a tank top to bed-who woulda thought but menopause does that to you.
Love your five things....we have had a temp drop of 40 degrees here and there is snow on the peaks. I'm really not ready for winter.
Hugs today.

I will check out Janas blog this weekend. I love long sleeve, flannel pj's. Nothing says sexy like falnnel. LOL Enjoy your cooler weather, and the spiced pumpkin latte's. They sound delicious.

Our weather can't decide. At night it is pretty dang chilly, almost cold. But during the day the sun is out and it's WARM. I'll take it - at least it's not humid and rainy.

First, I adore you dumplin's on the side bar. So, so cute. I feel like I know them so well after our summer camp with grammy. Second, I can't wait to get home and make some Shepards Pie, yummie for a cool fall night. And before I go, I promise to head over and check out the party. You know I'm all about a good party.

P.S. Finally, got Mr.S off on a solo hike this morning. Yipee, a little quiet time to kick back and try and catch up in blogland.

I did put an extra blanket on the bed (my side)! I was freezing! Still am. I'm tempted to turn on the heater. HaHa!!

Janna said...

Thanks Kris! Even though the linky isn't up, I linked to you and Genn today for playing along. Love this!!

Neicee said...

Happy Friday to you also my friend! I love this time of year also. I have been cooking away as well. Your knitting looks lovely!

Linda said...

Great 5's!! This Fall weather certainly gives me more energy!! Enjoy the day!!

Debbie said...

Hello! I have been soo behind on my blogging...but I have caught up with yours now I think. I agree with you, I have soo been enjoying this weather...Your cooking looks soo good. But then it always does. I am having a hard time settling back into Jenny Craig after cooking for Mike and Mel for a week. I really do LOVE to bake, cook, and unfortunately eat! haha I got a really nice fleece fall throw at Kohls the other day with my mom. I love it....only 20 bucks. Soo snuggly at night. I hadn't heard it is to be 80 again this week-end...sigh...I was loving the cooler temps. Have a wonderful week-end Kris!

Such a positive post. I spent the day at the doctors getting blood drawn and an x-ray on my foot.. if you can believe it I have gout in my right big toe joint. I hope you never get this.. it hurts! Reading your upbeat things lifted my spirits. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

This could have been my post as you named five of my favorite things this week. I live in Southern California, I splurged on my first pumpkin latte yesterday made mashed potatoes and macaroni this week, am stitching up a new halloween quilt and the throws are out on the couch. The only difference is my comfort clothing of choice is an old oversize sweatshirt. I found you through Elaine a Sunny Simple Life. Nice to meet you, I will definitely be back! Patty

Stacey said...

I love this list :) I need to get my booty to Starbucks and get a Pumpkin Spice Latte.. I have yet to have one.. And I love them..

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

Some of my favorite things too but now they say it is going to get hot again. WHY??? I am done with it.

Hi Kris

It's been chilly here, although it is supposed to get warm again this week.

I'll be traveling in Southern California very soon (San Diego), so I hope it warms up a little wehn I am there! :)

I haven't had a pumpkin spice latte as yet ...I better get one before they are off the menu..a pumpkin scone too!
