Friday’s Fave Five!

This past week has been full of some memorable events. Seems most of these events centered around food. Makes me wonder if I should just give up on losing weight, but this is a post about favorite things so onward and upward.

Topping the list of favorites was the fact that our daughter was here with us for several days. We walked on the beach, did some vintage shopping, attended her good friends wedding, and ate a lot of good food.

Worship on Sunday was really powerful with a challenging sermon about the Holy Spirit. There was a wonderful sense of unity in the Body that was really cool.

Katie and I made a trip to Glendale Forest Lawn and it was stimulating to see so many beautiful works of art. The grounds are so well kept and the little churches are filled with beautiful stained glass.

This is the Wee Kirk O’ the Heather at Glendale Forest Lawn

One of the favorite food items this past week was this hot fudge sundae Katie and I shared at the Tam O’ Shanter after our trip to Glendale Forest Lawn. It is served with the original fabulous C.C.Brown’s hot fudge that seriously tastes like very good candy! I can’t remember the last time I had a Hot Fudge Sundae! I’m salivating just thinking about it!

On Wednesday I met my Women’s Bible Study ladies at Cheesecake Factory to celebrate Fran’s birthday. We had such a great time laughing and enjoying each others company and celebrating Fran! Ok I’ll go ahead and show you what I ate…

So anyone want to place a bet on whether or not I gained weight last week??

Please visit the lovely Susanne at Living to Tell the Story to join in the fun or to see other Fave Fives!

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage unless I pay them a lot of money. I’m slowly cleaning up many posts from this time period and deleting their ugly grey and black boxes with a ransom request. Such a time consuming bother.

    how far do you have to walk to work that off?

    Oh yes,

    and including the fudge

    I have over at my place??

    Glad you had such a good time with your girl!

  3. Ellen, I hear you .. why does food always taste so much better when we spend so much time outside? I love Cheesecake factory. We haven’t any in Canada. .if I find one in my travels. . I’ll be stopping.
    I can’t believe the thrift shops down here ..I often think of you .. .and think how much fun it would be to thrift with an expert.

  4. Oh, Ellen, you seem to visit the nicest places! I love that picture of the wee Kirk o’ the Heather. Once again, your photos bring it to life! I know what you mean about food figuring in your favorites. My post last week listed two food items. I think I could write about food every week …

  5. Looks like you had a wonderful week! I love the little church and oh . .. the pictures of the food! I’m sure the taste was worth the extra walks!

  6. I’ll bet you walked it all off in the midst of your adventures! I looks like such a fun week filled with great fellowship. I got to go to work all week long….yippee!

    Have a fun Friday Ellen B.

    🙂 Cori G.

  7. You’ve got me drooling, ellen! Thanks for commenting about my broken ankle and that huge boot I have to wear. I’m hoping things heal up pretty soon. Boy I could use a hot fudge sundae! 🙂

  8. It would be very hard for ANYONE to lose weight with such a great week and reasons to celebrate. Your daughter is just lovely. I have always wanted to have hair color like hers. Just beautiful.

    And that hot fudge sundae … let’s just say it would have been difficult for me to share it 🙂

    Have a wonderful weekend!!

  9. Gorgeous pics Ellen, you have a beautiful daughter! Ahh and that hot fudge sundae looks divine but really was it enough to share?? grin

  10. Sometimes you just gotta celebrate and not think too much about the food! It looks to me like you had a great week and made lots of memories. What’s more important than that?
    That hot fudge sundae just added 5 pounds to MY scale just looking at it!

  11. That hot fudge sundae makes me put on weight even by looking at it!!!
    What a great post, and such gorgeous pictures!! Loved it!!
    And now I’m out of here before I take on even more weight!

  12. Food is a fact of life..we might as well enjoy it!!
    The web connection is interesting to me….it’s not the one that is in the Reply box right now. I will change the e-mail and it should put me back to being just Flower at Blog Spot!

  13. I think you had a very balanced week. Considering we have to eat at the very least 3 times a day….it is a major part of every day. Even better when we can share the eating with lose we enjoy.

  14. LOL. Sometimes I have a hard time not making my fave five all about food too. LOL.

    Your week with your daughter looks like so much fun. Love the worship picture too!
