Fridays Fave 5

"It's a place to come on Friday's and think back over your week and just post 5 favorite things from your week. It can be anything that tickled your fancy over the week. Favorite quotes, posts, happenings, scriptures, recipes, pictures, etc. Link to the Living to Tell the Story Fave Five post and then add yourself to the Mr. Linky. "

1. Gymnastics. I took Victoria to see the gymnastics studio on Thursday. While there she was able to take a trial class. She normally hangs on my leg when we go anywhere new but this time when the teacher said come with me. She ran off with a big smile on her face. In the middle of the class she ran up to me and said, "Mommy, I love you." After class I signed her up for 4 months of classes. I'm hoping she sticks with it as she has taken dance and quite and also soccer and quite. So I don't know if she can stick with something for very long period of time.

2. Thirty-One. I went to the Wacky Bazaar last night and fell in love with this company. I have hosted many different home parties since I have been married. Most of my friends call me the "Hostess with the Mostess". However, this was the first time I have heard of this company. So I booked a catalog party. If anyone who reads my blog wants to order anything please post a comment. My party will close on Dec 6 in time to have any personalized items mailed to you for the holidays. So what do I like in the catalog? The purse skirts is such a unique idea. Use the same base but change the outside. Awesome. Another thing I really liked was the All in One Organizer with Pocket. These would be great for organizing some of the kids toys and I even thought of using it for their laundry. I always sort the kids clothes into different baskets and they were very light weight so the kids could carry them upstairs themselves. I also need a new tote bag so I will probably get the Cindy Tote. Figures it would be named after my sister. So cute.

3. Late Fee Waived. Okay, this was a bit of a hassle but I just had to call and ask. I received my Gas Card Credit Card with a balance of $17? I'm like what? I don't remember getting gas for that cheap. Prices did go down on gas but not that cheap! Anyway, I looked at the bill more closely to find that it was a late fee and finance charges. So I called! I explained to them that I was a loyal customer and always paid my bill each month in full never leaving a balance and asked if I could have the fees waived. I was on hold for a short time and they did waive the fees. I was so relieved. I just don't need more unnecessary bills to pay. It's enough already with unexpected things. Like no heat on Tuesday! An additional $300 to fix our heat. It's working now thank God.

4. MOMS Club Newsletter Completed Early. I completed the newsletter in record time this month. I did a lot of research (read 224 blogs) and compiled a big list on Holiday Gifts. This list will certainly help me to decide what to get the kids this year for the holidays. I did not stress over the newsletter as much as I was in prior months. I did eliminate some of my scrapbooking so that helped some of the tension. And I now know that whatever I input will be changed anyway so why make it bother me so much?

5. Vicky and Jen. While reading all the blogs that I do I found a new podcast. This week I listened to 2 or 3 shows. I really enjoyed the ones about organizing. Of course, while listening I did fall behind on my soap but I can always catch up since I have TIVO. I know I will continue to listen to this new podcast as I really did enjoy their discussions.

What are some of your favorites from this past week?

Hello and welcome to Friday Fave Five. I enjoyed reading your list. I have one child who was just like your little girl when she was smaller too.

Yeah for the waived fee. I know what you mean about unexpected expenses. So glad they waived that for you!
