Friday's Favorite Five - #79

It's Friday, and time to reflect on the highlights of my week:

1.  Cappuccino MooLattes:  I love these things!  Last Friday, I had one when we went out with friends.  For some reason, whenever we go out, we always end up at the Dairy Queen for ice cream at the end of the evening.

2.  Blonde Highlights: Saturday, I went and had my blonde highlights put back in my hair.  Ahhh! Feels so much better!

3. A Bargain: I was at Surplus City when I came across a leather tote bag that was made for hanging file folders.  It was a beautiful burgundy color.  I'd seen and coveted one of these in a catalog, but it was too rich for my blood at $30.  I snagged the one at Surplus City for $10!  Score!

4. This week's quote:  I found another great quote to share with you.  "The most important work you and I will ever do will be within the walls of our own homes. ~Harold B. Lee"

5. My external hard drive:  I don't know if I shared with you what an excellent gift my hubby gave me at Christmas time.  It's called My Passport Essential, a 320 gb external hard drive that travels with me wherever I go.  It fits in my totebag in it's own pocket, and anytime I want to find a quote, recipe or a picture, I can find it as soon as I hook it into the nearest computer.  I use it almost daily so it qualifies for a highlight of the week.

I neeeeeed one of those little Passports! They are the best invention ever!

I got blonde streaks once... me... the redhead. I came home and no one said ANYthing -- until about 2 weeks later my husband said... "honey... you're getting awfully GRAY all of a sudden." ??? Needless to say I never got blonde streaks or highlights AGAIN!!!

High 5! on that file tote! :)

Love the quote. I'm sure I would love those MooLattes at DQ. It's always fun to find a bargain, isn't it?

Susanne said...

Ahh it's moolatte season. My son works at Dairy Queen. Sure wish I'd get a discount. :v)

I need to get me some highlights, too.

A good bargain always makes my list.

Blond highlights. . . those do make us happy!

Your external hard drive sounds like a good idea.

Very nice fives, Jerri -- a little something for your tastebuds, something pretty, something useful, something wise. Happy weekend!

What a great list. I love the tote bag snag! I am a sucker for a great bag, or 10 :)

Thanks for stopping by to see me also.

I hope you have a great FIRST WEEKEND of spring.

I love the bargain leather tote bag! I haven't seen one of those, but it sounds like something I would love to have. And your external hard drive sounds great, too. wish list just grew after reading your post!

Condolences to your daughter for picking Kansas for her NCAA tournament winner. They were in my top 2, so I'm not happy about their loss either. ha.

I'll have to check into an external hardrive. Sounds like something I could really use (that along with a delicious moolatte!). Thanks for sharing! By the way, I've missed you. I used to blog under my husband's initial (Mrs. C Happenings@Home). You can find me at House Changers now. Blessings!

I love having an external hard drive, but I really need to maximize its usefulness like you do!
