Friday Fave Five

Oh I have so been missing the Friday Fave Five this summer.  Just been so busy and out of a routine.  My summer plans for of lots of blog posts does not seem to be coming to fruition!  But I thought I would squeeze in a quick Friday Fave Five this evening…..yep, I know it’s late on Friday but I am determined to make it happen!
I have been busy transforming my dining room, from a messy storage room to an actual dining room.  As you can see from the before and after shots I am finally making some progress! 🙂  It has taken longer than I hoped ( don’t all projects like that always take longer than you thought!)

A few days at the beach is always a favorite.  The waves were W.I.L.D the one day we were there, it felt more like a white water rafting trip than a  day at the beach.  Regardless, the beach is always fun and enjoyable in my eyes.

Spending time with a high school friend at a local quarry.  The kids had a great time and we got to hang out and catch up.  It made for a nice, relaxing day.

Fleas………ok, so you are wondering WHY the heck I listed Fleas on here.  WELL………apparently Dawn dish detergent works quite well to get rid of fleas.  Our dog has fleas and has been driving us all looney with her itching.  We read online about giving the dog a bath with Dawn, and it has worked wonderfully.  Cheap too!!!!

Had my annual “women appointment” and “passed” with flying colors. 🙂  I also have not really gained any weight in the last 4 years.  That is something to motivate me to keep working out! 🙂
For more Friday Fave stop and visit Susanne at Living to Tell the Story!


  1. sounds like a wonderful week Sandy! Boy it would be nice to go to my annual and be able to say I haven’t gained anything in 4 years! Well done!!

  2. No weight gain in four years is something to be very thankful for!

    Thanks for the tip about Dawn detergent. I did not know that little detail.

  3. I love when you post! Looks like you have had lots of fun this summer… We have had a good one too… not really ready for it all to end on Monday…but there it always next summer! We are heading to our State Fair today and then next Thursday after work I am heading your way..NYC to see my oldest dd! yippee! Have a great day!

  4. Looks like you had an awesome week! love the colors of your dining room AND those beach waves are fantastic!!
    I’l pass on the Dawn tip to my sis who has 2 dogs….
    who woulda thunk a simple tip like that could rid fleas??
    YAY for you not gaining weight in 4 years…sadly, I have put on 6 lbs since last year’s annual. I blame it on the French food in Paris…lol…I am starting a full fledged workout program on Monday…pray i stick with it!!

  5. I’m loving the new colors you’ve chosen for your dining room. Isn’t a project on it’s way to completion a great sense of accomplishment?

    I didn’t know about Dawn. I’ll have to keep that in mind!

  6. Loving the room makeover. Nice wall color.
    Our little doggie had fleas too. Cost us a fortune though. I switched her flea meds…flea bathed her at the shop. Had my bug guy spray for fleas in our house and had our grass company spray the yard for fleas. I am not wanting to see anymore. Yuck. Not as cheap as your defleaing. Ugh
