Friday's Fave Five - September 4, 2009

It's time for Friday's Fave Five once again. FFF is a time where we recall highlights from our week and list our favorites.

1. Hot tea: Now that the mornings are cooler, I've been enjoying my favorite morning beverage. Hot tea is just so soothing to sip while I have my morning devotions.

2. Texas Sheet Cake: Today is our daughter Janae's 18th birthday and her requested birthday cake is my favorite, Texas Sheet Cake! Mmmm... love that fudgy goodness.

3. Favorite pics of Janae: Our daughter is blessed in that she is very photogenic and takes great pictures. I have a lot of favorite photos of her, but today I'm sharing a favorite baby photo:

and a favorite recent picture (from Easter 2009):

Some things never change ... notice that she tilts her head in the same direction in both pics?

4. Favorite New Quote: "Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges, but eventually you find a hair stylist you like" Author Unknown

which brings me to my last fave of the week:

5. Humor! I love to laugh and funny stories and quotes are precious to me. If I can laugh, I can feel good no matter how crummy my week may be. I always think a sermon goes over better if you can get your point across with humor.

How did your week go?

Why not link up with the gang at Susanne's Living to Tell the Story? They are an awesome group and it is so fun to visit their blogs and see the favorites they share.

Love that quote! Happy birthday to your beautiful daughter. She has a great smile! I don't think I've ever made Texas Sheet cake. Might have to give it a try... Keep laughing!!

Fun fives, Jerri! I have yet to make that cake, but it does sound indulgent. We're still baking here in So Cal, so no hot tea for me. How nice that you are getting to feel some autumnal weather ;-)

Love the quote! Made me laugh out loud. :)
And we LOVE Texas Sheet cake at our house also, reminds me that I have not made it for awhile. You are right about the fudgy goodness!

Beautiful pics of your DIL baked a Texas sheet cake just this past week, so I got to taste the goodness without the work....

How your daughter has grown! I love her smile then and now. I agree about laughter. And any sermon with a bit of humor - I'm all ears :)

Karyn said...

I've never heard of a Texas Sheet Cake, but anything with fudgy goodness sounds right up my alley! LOL

Happy birthday to your gorgeous daughter.

I agree....everything is better if you can share a laugh over it.

Happy Friday!

I love hot tea too even though it's so hot here recently I'll still have a hot cuppa.

Happy Birthday to Janae! She's has turned from an adorable baby into a beautiful young lady.

Your quote made me laugh out loud. That is funny.

Ooooo, I haven't made Texas Sheet Cake in awhile. I might have to remedy that this long weekend.
