Friday Night Fab Five: Thankful

This week's Friday Night Fab Five was fun because I have a couple of special guests with me, woo hoo! So on with the Five...

1. I've been a big reader since I was a young child. Once I started playing video games that fell to the way side for the most part and then when my crafting addiction kicked into high gear it plummeted to the way side. But like riding a bike again, you never forget how to do it and sometimes it just takes the right book to get you obsessed once more.

I've finished reading "I Loved Lucy" by Lee Tannen who was one of Lucille Ball's closest friends the last decade of her life. This book is a must for any Ball fan even though I found it a sad read at times. If you come across it, snatch it up!

2. Ally from xoxo, ally cannot live without her iPhone:

She says, "so my iPhone is exactally what I can't live a hour let alone a day without!!! This baby rocks my world!!! Ha!! {true story},,,"

3. Amanda from AB Home Interiors is all about animal print:

She says, "I apparently can't live without leopard animal print. Any animal print for that matter. I did not realize this until my 6 year niece brought it my attention. So observant she is!"

4. Lisa from Takin' Life One Day at a Time has chosen a doozy that I think we can all relate with:

She says, "Numero Uno Can't Live Without Item...The Freakin' Stinkin' Suck Up All Your Time Internet! But man, how I love it!"

5. And to round out the bunch, this week brought so many fab surprises for me that I am so grateful for! Check out my newest toy!

Angela, one of the fantastic friends I met at the Life Preservers Scrapbook Club forums won a Slice (way to go Angela!) and amazingly gave me her personal Cricut! WHA?!?! I couldn't believe it! So it came in the mail yesterday and I can't wait to give it a test drive!

Not only that but my good friend Callista sent me a surprise package with all sorts of teas and Hello Kitty goodies!

AND the multi-talented Jocelyn and Jackie gave me an award! Thanks so much ladies!!!

I'm so thankful for my wonderful and thoughtful friends that shared part of their Fab things with me, sent precious fun mail and gave me these awards. What a great way to start my weekend!!!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Terrific roundup! I've never heard of that book before, but would certainly be interested in checking it out. I have a lot of friends who are Lucy fans and I'll definitely be mentioning it to them, too. Thanks! :)
