Friday's Fave Five #170

Once again, the week has quickly rolled around to Friday.  One of my favorite days!

I love to look back and share 5 highlights of my week. It helps keep the days from passing by in a blur and not remembering anything that happened!

1. I had a long list of things to do this week and I have managed to cross a lot of them off my list.  I love crossing things off.  Sometimes, I put something on my list I've already done just so I can cross it off. I know ... I have issues.

2.  I decided to buy my mom a dress for Christmas.  As I headed into the store, I prayed for guidance.  The very first dress I saw on the rack in her size was it!  I quickly sent a picture text to my sister and she agreed it was the one.  (Isn't modern technology great?)  I'm also proud of myself for mailing it early instead of having to do it priority.

3. This week was my week to present the bible lesson for midweek service at my church.  I decided to talk on the prophecies Christ fulfilled when He came to earth as a baby. What an interesting study!  It's so amazing to see how God worked out every detail.

4.  Pinterest is my newest obsession and I've been collecting ideas for Christmas decor.  As if I really had time to do any of these crafts ... Anyway, I picked up some supplies for a simple craft to do this weekend.  I'm like a kid - so excited.  I will show you a picture of the finished product next week.  In the meantime, I wanted to show you my favorite creamware pitcher dressed up for winter:

I'm going for a natural look - I just love red berries!

5.  Another reason I love Fridays is that it's casual day and I can wear jeans to the office.  I have finally found a pair of  "trouser jeans" like the kind recommended by Stacy and Clinton on "What Not To Wear."  (I don't know if my Canadian friends get that show on their cable.  It's on TLC, The Learning Channel.)  I'm excited!  They look good just as they said they would!

I have those list issues too. :-) I love marking things off.

Modern technology is so wonderful. It has definitely helped me with my shopping this year too.

I bet your talk was very enlightening about the prophecies. It's amazing how God works in all the details.

I haven't joined the Pinterest craze yet because I'm scared. Ha. I know it will suck away even more of my time. :-) I would love it too much, from what I hear. Glad you're enjoying it though!

I thought that writing down already completed items on a list and then crossing them off was completely normal behavior. It's not??? It must be, I mean, I do it too!

I've joined Pinterest but am still a little foggy on how to pin :)

I laughed out loud at you putting things on your list that you'd done just so you could cross them off. That's SO funny! (I love crossing things off the list, too!)

Can't wait to see your craft project next week. I'm having fun with my mom, my preacher son and his wife and Aiden this weekend!

Have a great week ahead.

You are so right about fighting the blurs with FFF. Congrats with your retail successes :-) I like the contrast between your fortunate find (mom's dress) with God's perfect plans through the centuries. Nothing He plans goes awry!

We sure do get that show. :v)

I have the same list "issues" you do. Love that feeling.

The study you did is very fascinating.
