Friday Five Favs


1. My best friend from law school arrives TODAY!!!!!!!!!!! I don't have enough exclamation points at hand that wouldn't kill the point and annoy you thoroughly. Here we are last time she came:

(I look all pensive in this picture, but whatever!)

2. The L.M. Montgomery Reading Challenge is underway as of yesterday and I bought one of those lockets I was talking about to give away as part of the challenge. I LOVE Lucy Maud Montgomery. She's a perfect way for me to start a reading year. For me, she promotes beauty, imagination and peace and therefore I love hosting this challenge.

3. We all got sick on Christmas or directly thereafter but as of this moment, noses aren't running away and we're all healthy (and ready to see my friend that I briefly mentioned to you earlier).

4. This cup (that Jonathan gave me for Christmas) makes me very happy:

5. And, not to repeat myself or anything, but this whole anticipated weekend just makes me very, very happy!

Happy Friday to you!

Enjoy the happy and all the !!!
I have gotten into reading L.M. Montgomery this last year. Finally read all the Anne books and few of her other books as well. I really enjoyed every book I read!
Sorry you were sick but glad you are better! happy New Year!!

I love your joy. Have fun with your friend! Special times. I'm still fighting a head cold I've had since Christmas, too. Oh well. Better than a stomach virus. Have a great new year.

Seeing a good friend is a great way to start a new year!!!

Good times with friends is definitely cause for excitement.

What a fun reading challenge...and nothing is better than college friends! Happy New Year!

Susanne said...

While I watch Anne of Green Gables regularly, I have to admit I have never read one book of L.M. Montgomery. I just might have to remedy that.

It doesn't sound like you are very excited about your friend coming. LOL. Enjoy your visit with her!

I need to get myself one of those cups. Have fun with your friend and that reading challenge looks interesting.
Happy New Year.

One of my 'resolutions' for this year is more reading time. I'll have to check out LMM. :)

Have fun with your friend!

Hey - I gave that same cup to Chad for Christmas! My thinking was that if he didn't like it, *I* would have to appropriate it for myself. But...he likes it. Oh well! :)
