Five Friday Favorites. Fuzzy headgear included.

This week I’ve been a housewife. Cleaning, laundry, bills, cooking and cleaning again. It seriously cut into my blogging time, but the house is looking pretty durn good (you know, aside from all the desired structural and aesthetic improvements – because walking on the construction slab is only entertaining for so long…) However, it’s Friday, and I’m happy to be hanging out, once again, with Oh, Hey Friday, High Five for Friday and Friday Favorites (add’l links below)!


Favorite Song (for) This Week


Heartbeat Song by Kelly Clarkson. I’m a huge Kelly Clarkson fan, and I am not at all ashamed about that. Girl has pipes. And she seems ridiculously cool. The day I found out she had a new album coming out (same day that I heard this new song) was the best day. It wasn’t this week, but I’m still calling it my favorite song for this week.



Favorite Quote This Week


Full disclosure: this is an excerpt from my post on blog envy. However, I didn’t plan for, or notice, any portion of that post to be a stand-alone quote until one of my dear friends made it her Quote of the Day on Facebook. My thanks to Susan for the word love – and also for capturing something of which I sometimes need to be reminded.

 Different is greatness


Favorite Funny This Week

Sorry, Rest of the United States. And cheers.




 Favorite Accessory This Week


To keep cozy in winter. Hey, if one’s margarita is frozen, it could lead to brain freeze!


USF Rocky Hat

Yes, it is Rocky, the USF Bull.


Favorite Thing I’ve Looked Forward To All Week


The ‘rents are coming in town! They landed in Florida earlier this week and have been hanging out in Naples. They’re with a close family friend, drinking and enjoying NOT being under several feet of snow in below zero temps. In just two more days they’ll be here! (And now you see why I’ve been a cleaning fool all week)

      Everything you’ve heard is true, Allison – Florida is screwy in a lot of ways, but it gets the weather right!

      Katie – just curl up inside, roasty toast under a nice soft blanket, and then have a ‘rita. No need for the two to be mutually exclusive!

    I hope you’ve enjoyed visiting with your parents! What fun. I love my parents 🙂 And I definitely have weeks were I’m busy with housework and everything else falls apart, or the blog is rocking it, but the house is a mess! So hard to keep it all up 🙂 Thanks for linking up with us at H54F!!!

      I always love linking up with H54F, Katie! Yes, my parents are awesome (as evidenced by the goofy photo in my post), and we’ve been eating/drinking our way through the week – my favorite way to spend time with my favorite people!
