Friday Fave Five

Today's FFF is a collection of my current favorite seasonal experiences. Like most folks, excepting Mr. Scrooge before the ghosts visited him, I love this time of year. I think one reason is because we are more intentional in getting together with the ones we love. Anyway, here are my favorites for this week.

1. Decking our first halls with my husband. It's a Team effort around our house because I have zero patience for tangled Christmas lights.

2. Josh Groban's Christmas cd, Noel. Silent Night (Track 1) is everything you would hope from Josh. Glorious! And so far I've gotten weepy everytime I've listened to I'll Be Home For Christmas. You'll understand why if you listen to it, which I highly recommend.

3. Starbucks Non-Fat hot chocolate. I might be okay with putting a few Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving, but I can't drink this if it's not cold out. It's good, non-fat, and you get the happy red cup.

4. Turning into our driveway and seeing our very first big Christmas tree lit up in the window of our very first house. It's a dream come true, really.

5. Pulling out the Christmas dishes and serving up a plate of warm food. Why is it that the Christmas season makes you want to cook more? I'm going into uncharted territory to bake my first real cheesecake tonight. We'll see how that goes...

Feel free to pass your sights and sounds along!


  1. YAY! What a fabulous FFF!! I too have been baking just for the sake of it and researching all kinds of holiday recipes...while enjoying twinkly lights and Christmas music

    Are you guys still going to NY?

    P.S. D-Day (Dantzler moving day) is currently estimated for Dec 15th! We are supposed to close on the 14th. Woohoo!!

    P.S.S. we have not been out to SR ALL WEEK so we haven't seen the festive Gentry house but we will probably be driving by sometime this weekend....I can't wait to see your tree in the window

  2. Oh my goodness, that's just days away!!!

    If you drive by Saturday night, I have high hopes that we will also have lights on the outside of the house too, and I am so excited!

    We are going to NY still, so I should say another sound pf the season I'm enjoying is hearing that the strike is over.

  3. Ooo, great post!! I love, love, love everything about Christmastime! I HAVE to get that Josh Groban cd. I've heard some of the songs off of it, but not the whole thing.

    I wish you the best with the cheescake! :) Merry Christmas!
