An Exciting Friday's Fave Five.

Happy “Friday’s Fave Five” blog, hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story. Click on the linky to see what 5 things other bloggers found pleasurable this week!

1. Spinach Wraps
At least 3 meals a week I have a wrap from our campus deli. If
I order something different than the usual, it's a rarity, but unfortunately, sometimes 42nd Street Deli doesn't have my usual. So, one day, I had to try something new. My favorite shell was the tomato basil shell, but one day, I had to try something new. Now the usual has become the spinach shell. As I write this, I am eating a spinach wrap with chicken salad, white american cheese, extra lettuce, spinach, and onion.

2. Baby Jack
I love this baby. Jack's mom was one of my best friends in high school. After graduation 3 years ago, we went separate ways, but we have reconnected in the last few months, and now Baby Jack calls me 'Aunt Jewel' (okay, he doesn't yet, but he will!) I watched him once when he was just 3-wks-old, again for the entire weekend a few weeks ago, and last night for a couple of hours. We played with mirrors, bowls, and spoons; watched 4 episodes of One Tree Hill, and studied together for my speech exam (mostly, he was a distraction while my books laid open on the sofa.)

3. Christmas music
Yes, I said it -- Christmas music. I started my Christmas playlist earlier this week. My 3 favorites are 'N Sync, Michael W. Smith, and Clay Aiken. Of course, All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey and Let it Snow by Michael Bublé are classics!
Christmas is, of course, only 2 months, 1 week, and 1 day away! Are you ready? Have you started your Christmas playlist? What are your favorites?

4. Vandy & Tess' wedding pictures
Finally, Titus uploaded these pictures from Vandy and Tess' wedding in Manila on September 30th.

You might remember them talking about them here or here and probably quite a few other blogs that I'm too lazy to search. :)

5. My 93%
I'm currently taking Basic Christian Doctrine at 7:50 Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning. It was the class I was dreading the most, because I never could understand Theology, I heard it was hard, and it started before 8am, but, it really is my favorite class! Last Sunday night I stayed up the entire night (ok, I did accidentally fall asleep for 25 minutes at 5:30 Monday morning) studying for my first Theology exam. I got a 93% and no one got an A, so I felt really good about it! (By the way, out of 50 students, there were many under 60%.) I can't commit to studying 29 hours for the next exam, but I certainly gave my grade a soft cushion to land on if I don't do as well on the next 2 exams.

[Yes, I was this excited.]

The spinach wrap looks so colorful. If I only liked spinach, I would say it also looks delicious. ha. Baby Jack is so adorable.

Did you have to remind us how close Christmas is? Yikes. Time to start thinking about it. Congratulations on your 93!!!

Congrats on that great 93%. Now that you know Theology is understandable, you won't have to study so many hours for the next test.

The spinach wrap looks so yummy that I'm hungry now!

I've never had a spinach wrap, but that looks wonderful.

Jack looks cute! What a fun distraction.

Christmas music already? I need to check out Michael Buble's.

The wedding photos are lovely!

Congratulations on your 93! Good work!

Brenda said...

Congratulations on the good test score! I can't believe you are listening to Christmas music already! I dont officially start that until after Thanksgiving.

Sarah said...

Those wedding pictures are soooo beautiful! I love weddings!

Susanne said...

Congratulations on your great mark. Your hard studying paid off!

What a beautiful couple the newlyweds make! And the baby is absolutely adorable.

And now I'm hungry for a spinach chicken wrap! :v)
