Five of my Favs at the Moment

1. I love the author Jan Karon. It's been many years since I last read the Mitford series, but I jumped right in with this one. I love, love, love Father Tim. Don't you?

2.White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Creamer from International Delight. Yummy! But I haven't forgotten my one true love which is ...

3. This wonderful barbeque restaurant in Victoria makes the best fountain drinks EVER! If you love adding cherry or vanilla to your soda, this drink will blow you away with deliciousness(is that a word). I get the Vanilla coke(yes real coke), and it is heavenly. I love me some Sonic, but these drinks are about 1000 times better. I kid you not. Try one if you are in the area.
4. Watching my husband prepare for the upcoming Christmas program at church. I may have mentioned before that they are doing an all out live radio performance of It's A Wonderful Life. There will be six identical services over three days, and I cannot wait. I have been to a rehearsal and I'm so excited to see how awesome it is going to be. There will be live foley artists for the sound effects, advertisements, live music, and so much more. I am helping in finding costumes that would be comparable to the 1940's dress. Help!!! I'm thinking that most of the guys will be in suits and hats, and the ladies will be wearing dresses and hats too. Our whole atrium and auditorium will be like you stepped back in time. I can't wait.
5. This blog is so addictive. Not only is the Pioneer Woman an excellent cook and professional photographer, she also is writing a true life romance novel about how she and her husband met and fell in love. I fell for the story hook, line, and sinker. I look for a new installment each day to her continuous love story. If you want to see for yourself, start here. After you are hooked like me, you can go to her archives and catch up. I'm not alone in this adoration of this story, she has a bazillion other readers who are more addicted than me.
Now, if you get a chance, share some of your "Five Favs of the Moment" too.

I have got to start reading that Mitford series.

I cannot imagine pop better than Sonic's cherry Dr. Pepper, other than our local Burger Barn's cherry Mt. Dew. That must be good!

I've been hearing about the Pioneer Woman, so I guess I'm going to have to add her to my long list.

I'll try to do my Fave Fives soon, but I wanted to let you know that I tagged you for a meme over at my place. I hope you can play along.

I just started the Mitford series yesterday! I normally don't read fiction but this series came highly recommended from a reliable source... my mom!

I didn't know about this Jan Karon book. I enjoyed reading the Mitford series - I bet I'd like this one too.

What an awesome sounding Christmas performance! I love that kind of thing. Sound like an incredible amount of work too!

I too am addicted to Pioneer Woman - she makes me giggle- and her recipes are always amazing. At least the ones I have tried.

I think I read one of the Mitford series back when I was a teenager. I'm going to have to get around to reading them all.

I am so jealous that you get that creamer. We don't get the fancy schmancy seasonal flavors here where I live. I've looked everywhere. And I mean everywhere for that flavor. Sigh. I'll have to stick with my Southern Butter Pecan or French Vanilla.

Five Faves: Hmmm
1. Reed Diffuser room scenters. I posted about it last week.

2. Willow tree angels.

3. Mud Pie from Tony Roma's.

4. Midnight Pomegranite Hand Lotion from Bath and Body Works.

5. Mandissa - True Beauty CD. Incredible!

Now mind you this can all change tomorrow. But for today, these are my five faves. :v)
