Friday Favorites

Fridays are usually bittersweet for me. It means the end of the workweek (yay!) and it also means I have to say goodbye to two my amazing children as they go to their dad's for the weekend ( awww man!) . It means  I finally get precious alone time spent with my husband (yay!) and it also means alot of that time winds up being used to take care of mudane weekend tasks/chores that still need taking care of ( awww man!) .
In light of this I try to keep focused on the postive and so I'm proposing a Friday Favorites weekly post, to keep everyone's spirits up as the weekend approaches and hopefully challenge YOU to pick out your top five ( or heck, even ten) favortie things!

#1 - funky cellphone camera options
My husband suprised me with this morning when he brought me this beautiful yellow gerber daisy - just to say he was thinking of me! (he just melts me) I played with my phone camera's options and settled on the "negative" option for this one. I thought i looked kinda funky.  Here's the "normal" (aka "boring" shot)
BUT I love love love the actual color of this flaower. I wish my cellphone had a bettter camera it to capture the intensely rich yellow, it's one of my most favorite colors!

#2 - frozen blended lattes
a yummy and much needed pick-me-up during the summer to help pull me out of the mid-afternoon slump ;)
(all you awesome girls at jojo's cafe totally rock!)

#3 - the beach

We joke that we know we've become "locals" in the destination resort town that we live in because the summer is half over and we've barely been the beach at all, and not even once for a swim! haha

#4 - this fun card!

The adorable card was made by my beautiful, creative mentor and friend Barb - who is one of my most favoritist people on the whole planet! Make sure you head on over to her blog  to see how she made it, and for all you digital scrapbookers out there, she has lots of freebies as well as amazing elements you can buy! 

#5 - this guy ;)  He's my ALL TIME FAVORITE ever! xoxo.  I consider myself the luckiest, most blessed woman on the planet to be married to the Man of my Dreams and be the Mrs. who gets to wake up to this handsome face every morning!
(this was taken at our friends' house on Superbowl sunday of this year, hee hee)

Ok! well I hope this inspired you keep your thoughts on all the wonderful blessings in your life as you head into the weekend.
 My Mr. and I are headed into the city to rescue our friends from an hour-long channel float, and then make them feed us,  haha!
