Fridays Fave 5

I came across this on another blog and I just love it!! So here are some favorite things from this past week.

1. Candy corn and peanuts. I'm not a big fan of either separately, but put them together...YUM! Personally, I like the ratio of 1 candy corn to 2 peanuts.

2. Cozy, dark Fall days. It just makes it so nice to be warm and comfy inside. Unless you aren't inside!

3. These great containers that I found for lunches. I am really trying to reduce the number of plastic bags that I use in general, and especially for lunches. These are working out great for my two oldest (they have two lids - a big one and one for the middle section). Also, I am a big fan of Bento lunch blogs and while I can't/don't make our lunches look like those, this is a step in that direction.

4. California Rolls from Wegmans. I love to get these for a special treat for lunch every so often.

5. That this spider was outside and NOT inside (It looked much larger in person. Really!). I am not a fan of spiders. At. all. A friend of my oldest found this outside and was excited to show me. Thanks.

6. Ok - I know that I shouldn't break the rules, especially on my first time doing this, but I have another one: watching Cloverfield with my husband on Wednesday night. Great movie, great company :)

Happy Friday!!!

Hi Robin! I'm going to have to try that peanut and candy corn deal, you have made me curious as to how that tastes :0)
I love those little containers!!
Listen I'm melting here in southern california, I'm yearning for a little bit of fall weather here! All spiders belong outside in my humble opinion...
Have a nice weekend...

LOL. I broke the rule the first time too and I made the rules. LOL. Thanks for joining. I loved your favorites from the week. I love candy corn but have never had it mixed with peanuts. I'll have to give it a try and I'm totally with you and the fall evenings. Love them. Your spider one made me laugh and shudder at the same time.

I never would have thought of candy corn and peanuts together. Those rolls looks good. And I don't like spiders either!!

That spider gives me the heebie jeebies. I'm surrounded by big ones too. I'm always on edge...

Hi Robin!

First of all, I love your list. I love these dark fall days too, but maybe it's because here in western Colorado it's just so amazingly "bright" (code - HOT) all summer long, the darker, cooler days of autumn are just a huge relief. And really comforting. Days like that make me feel all snuggled up inside my home.

I hate spiders. A lot. When I find one, if it isn't a black widow, which is common where I live, I try to very gently relocate it, but still, spiders just creep me out.

To answer the question you left on my preemie cap post, I taught myself to crochet from a $2 book. Thirty years ago. And the book is still available at almost any store that sells yarn. Wal-Mart and Hobby Lobby carry it. I believe it's now closer to $4. Of course it is. Inflation! But it's a simple little booklet that you can easily learn from.

I wanted you to know, I didn't know a soul who knew how to crochet but I wanted to learn, so I spent a couple of dollars and I taught myself, from a simple little booklet.

I've given classes and taught my daughters and their friends. Of course, it's easier if someone actually shows you how to do it, but I want you to know, if you want to learn and you don't know anyone who can "show" you, you can certainly teach yourself. Crochet is easy. Really.

And thank you for visiting me. I hope you'll visit again. :-)

That's a great list, and I'm with you on the candy corn thing! I didn't use to like it but have grown to like it more over the past couple of years. Funny how our tastes can change.

Many sweet blessings!
