Top 5 Weekend Favorites

How was your weekend?  Was is hot and sunny?  Or did you wake up to find a blizzard outstide your window?  Or was it just Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs?  hahaha  (my kids liked that movie)
Being where I live, I got a combimation of weather, It was pouring buckets when I woke up this morning, and overcast as we headed out for the day.
this was the sight that greated me earlier in the evening as I headed for long overdue visit to my wonderful, dearly missed, never-get-enough-time-with-her friend Barb's house ( I have blogged about her several times in the past, at least) you can visit her too, at

Favorite #1 - sunhine-lit orchards and vineyards - right at my doorstep

I pulled over, super excited that I ACTUALLY had my ACTUAL full slr camera ACTUALLY with me for an unexpected photo opp of nature.
So I pulled it out, pressed the shutter and .....  nothing happened.
No memory card! 
No problem, because unbeleiveably I just so happned to have my smaller kodak camera on hand also. ( almost never happens that I have both at the same time)  I hastily grabbed the memory card from that one, popped it into my camera and . . . . . .   nothing happened.

{That awkward feeling when you realize the battery is dead}

DOH!   I know, I know, rookie mistake! 

So this pics was taken with the only other camera I had with a working battery, my Kodak Play-ful waterproof camera.  Which is my new favorite back-up camera!

Favorite #2 - Kodak Play-ful waterproof camera

I brought this baby along with us to Mexico and it held it's own in some pretty big waves! haha

Favoite #3 - cute rocker-girl guitar picks

Ive been goofing around on my guitar for years with only a handful of lessons under my belt ( I prefer to teach myself) and I couldn't resist taking a pic of the funky picks that caight my eye in the music store today!

Favorite #4 -Mango-Pinapple fruit smoothies from McDonald's

Totally addicted.     Seriously.

My Starbucks frappaccino days are in danger of extinction!

Favorite #5 - Smiley-face balloons! ( a whole laz-e-boy full of 'em!)

I wished my amazing husband a happy birthday with these balloons stacked up hiding his wrapped gift on the seat of his recliner.  Fun bonus: I handed him a thumbtack to pop the balloons, because each one had a personal little note or homemade coupon inside for him!

I hope you all had a great weekend, and I hope you had a chance to enjoy one or two of your favorite things. Or maybe you had an opportunity to discover a new favorite thing!  -J

  1. Hi Janice,

    It was a blessing to have you visit ME, and wow, I've never seen THAT exact scenario at the top of the hill before, I'll have to try to trap it one day if it recreates.

    I love how CUTE you are. You're always enjoying the little things in life and coming up with fun ideas. We thinkin' the same!
