Good morning!  It's Friday and time for my favorite 5 things of this week.  I hope everyone had a great week and will have a wonderful weekend!
With that being said, I will get started!

1.  Cookout on Memorial Day.  Had a good day with kids and grandkids. We had burgers, chips, summer salads, cheesecake and brownies!  Yummo!

My granddaughter Mallory, Andrew and Baby Emma

 Granddaughter Brittney and great grandson Carson
 Daughter Kari and Emma
 Carson and Emma
 Waldorf Salad (I love this)
 Kari made this watermelon, feta, mint salad. (Very good!)
And here's my messy cheesecake.  I added a layer of chocolate between crust and filling.  (It wasn't great)

2.  I received a goodie box from a girl in one of the groups I am in. She was de-stashing and all I had to do was pay postage-$12!   OMGoodness!  I could not believe what all I got!  I never expected so much!  
 Tons of stickers, word art, ribbon, flowers and PAPER!  I love all the gorgeous paper!

3.  Another good thing this week was that the bad weather avoided us. There were threats of tornadoes for three days-and we did NOT need anymore destruction.
  AND the benefit concert that Blake Shelton hosted was awesome! It was held in OKC and sold out in less that an hour! The proceeds went to help Oklahoma tornado victims.  We have a lot of great music artists from Oklahoma-Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Garth Brooks, Toby Keith and many more.

4.  My favorite pic of the week:
My great grandson Carson.
It is SO hard to get him to smile while looking at a camera.  This is a little forced but oh so cute!  lol

5. My favorite pin of the week (among SO many!):
I love rag quilts.  I have made a few of them.  This one is next on my list!
See pin on Pinterest.

That wraps up my 5 faves for the week. But here is my weekly coffee pic!  I love coffee! lol

Thank you all for stopping by!

  1. Awesome! I love all of your crafts! You are so talented.

    I had to laugh when you said, first and foremost, I'm not a writer. Haha!

    I'm also not a writer! We have something in common. Have a great Sunday and beautiful and safe week ahead! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. Thank you for your kind words! My blogs is always photo heavy because I do not like to write. I guess I let my pics tell my story and that's okay with me! :)
