Friday Night Fab Five: Go Go New Year!

Hey everyone and welcome to another Friday Night Fab Five...actually the first one of the New Year! Basically I list five people, places or things I'm currently gaga over for your blog reading enjoyment!

Hey, if you're considering joining the circle journal swap, I still have a couple of spots left, don't by shy! :D Details are in this post.

So let's get going on the Fab Five, yes?

1. Dexter

I love finding new shoes to watch and I love them even more if they're already a couple seasons in and I can indulge in a marathon or two getting caught up. This show, about a serial killer, is dark, funny and Dexter is too cute.

2. Chocolates

I don't mean just "chocolate". I mean chocolates, like in boxes. I could not come up with a way to truly describe the feeling I get from boxed chocolates and then my mom said, "They're fancy." BINGO!

3. Yarn

I just love making things with yarn and have been on a HUGE crochet kick lately. I love buying yarn, finding new colors, talking about yarn, looking at yarn...yeah, I could go on. I would love to have the money for fancier yarns but Red Heart yarns suit me just fine! And now that they've come up with a new line, "Stitch Nation" yarn? Whoa baby!

4. Twitter

Say what you want about it but Twitter is fun! You can follow your favorite celebs, get quick opinions or answers to questions and instantly connect. If you're on Twitter, you can find @addglitter. That's me! :D

5. A New Year

There's something exciting about a new year starting. Like you get a clean slate, a chance to try all over again, everyone gets a second chance. Wait, I think that's a line from Forrest Gump... Well, I love when a new year starts and this year I've had a lot of new ideas, dreams, goals and wishes that I hope come true in 2010. :D

What about you? What are you in love with this week?

I ADORE Dexter! It's the coolest programme. I eat chocolate EVERY morning with breakfast-really I do!
I agree with regds. to A new holds a cleansing purging type of effect doesn't it?
And This week I am in Love with my lovely Hubby all over again.awh shucks

Faerie Moon Creations said...

Ohhhh...chocolate and yarn! How divine. :) I must say that twitter has been great for me. I've met a lot of new friends, and it's helped me gain exposure for my little shop. I've never watched Dexter, but my husband says it's really good. :) And I'm always up to the challenges each New Year brings! :) Theresa

Carmen said...

A TOTALLY fabulous 5 this week, nodding along with all of them. Hotel Chocolat has totally ruined any other chocolate for me (apart from malteasers) but they are SO expensive. We treat ourselves to a box every 4 months... the payment came out my bank today which means a box, snow permitting, is at this very moment winging it's way to us! *squeek*

Kirsty said...

Hey :)

Because your blog is so good, I've left you an award over on my blog :)

Always fun to read lists and such like this Fab Five... in fact, I have an award (aka blog hug) for you and if you would be so kind as to come and comment...two lovely blog hugs for you (they both have fun list type parts to them).

...I've never seen Dexter...I agree it is fun to make a marathon out of shows :o)
...chocolates...mmmm! esp Lindts Lindor truffles and Kit Kats and peanut m&ms and... the stuff too! ah..would love more time to crochet more.
...twitter...oh, havent joined in on the twitter train.
...look forward to reading about what you have in store with 2010. :o)

You are busy, busy, busy :o) I love that on your last post you all have a girls night out and what a great movie to watch!
Blessings & Aloha!

Bella said...

I know what you mean about chocolates. There's something more special or something about a box of chocolates. We always get a box of Godiva chocolates each year at work at Christmastime and this year's was heavenly. :) Oh, and I love that yarn, too.

yyam said...

I love chocolates! If you love them in fancy wrapped boxes, you will go crazy in Belgium and Switzerland...hmmmm...yum...

I started watching Dexter last year on recommendation by an online friend...I'm caught up...loved season 3...season 4..yawn...though they killed off an irritating character (yay!)

ellen s. said...
