Friday’s Fave Fives

Here we are at the second Friday of March already. I enjoy pausing the merry-go-round of life to share the blessings of the week with Susanne and friends at Living to Tell the Story.

1. My husband’s birthday.

2. Fun birthday accessories. This was a “milestone” birthday, and the cake topper says, “I’m not old, I’m classic.” 🙂

I was also excited to find these paper birthday plates:

3. Lunch with Jason, Mittu, and Timothy. Jim was out of town last Friday, and my son and his family invited me to lunch at a Mexican food restaurant. Good food and company. 🙂

4. Flowers from my middle son’s family. This was actually from last week, but I forgot to mention them. They are still looking good!

5. Girl Scout cookies. My husband brought some home one day. I like the Tagalongs–chocolate and peanut butter combination. They had a new one this year that had a chocolate base with a caramel and sea-salt topping. It would have been better if the chocolate cookie part was soft rather than so hard it scattered crumbs whenever you bit into it. They also had one gluten-free variety, Toffee-tastic, that he got for Mittu.

That’s it for my week. How was yours?

  1. Oooh, I love your tulip header photo.
    And those terrific significant-birthday accoutrements are fun. Is that a Boston Cream cake? Wow.

    How lovely to have a family lunch out. You’ve got me hankering for Mexican food now…

    Those are sweet carnations, some of my favorite flowers. They do last, don’t they?

  2. Happy birthday to your husband! Yummy looking cake — it sounds like a week of good food, which is always a win 🙂 I’m glad my youngest is arriving later today for her final spring break before finishing college. Happy weekend!

  3. It’s so nice that your grandson could join you on a school day for lunch out!! That’s a true blessing.
    I LOVE the cake topper!! Happy birthday to your husband.
    BEAUTIFUL pink flowers. Love them.
    I hope you enjoy a wonderfully relaxing weekend.

  4. So glad that your husband had a nice birthday! His cake looks delicious. Those pink flowers are lovely. I think you and I the same dining room table and chairs. Girls Scout cookie time again – I need to get some! Have a good weekend. See you again soon.

  5. Happy Birthday to your husband! I love the decorations you found, they’re great. I wasn’t going to buy cookies this year, but then I saw a Scout out in the cold with her little table set up and my heart softened. I bought four boxes!

  6. Happy Birthday to your husband. We bought a couple of box of cookies. My husband loves the thin mints. I love anything with chocolate and peanut butter. Enjoy your weekend!

  7. Your tulip header photo is beautiful!
    Happy Birthday to your Vintage husband! The celebration was probably just what he wanted. Cake and family.
    Lunches out with family is best, too.
    Have a great weekend!

  8. Happy birthday to Jim! I love the cake topper and the plates. Made me laugh. How nice of the kids to take you out to eat when your hubby was gone. Love pink carnations! I haven’t had a girl scout (in Canada they are girl guide) cookie in many a year.
