Five on Friday

1. Phone Cases

What I want...

Having a new phone - one that is current - I can actually find phone cases now for it. My last one was so old, you never could find a case in the store & the ones you could find on line were just plain ugly ones.  So I've spent WAY too much time online looking at cute phone covers - especially Beauty & the Beast ones.

The problem?  I'm too afraid to get any of them.  I keep my phone in one of those safety cases so if you drop it, it keeps it safe.  Why can't they make those in a pretty style?  I'm going on Shark Tank with that idea....

What I'll use...
Safety First

2. Ring Tones

Speaking of phones, I am on the hunt for a good place for free ring tones.  I have no patience so I did go on Verizon's site & buy two. I have to have KISS play when Ricky calls.  I used to have "I was made for Loving you" playing on my old phone but was so excited when I saw they had "Forever" available. That was played at our wedding & is kinda our KISS song....

& the other ring tone?  A given... Steven Curtis Chapman.  When anyone calls, "Glorious Unfolding" plays.  BEST SONG!

I'm still on the hunt for a good Beauty & the Beast song... & I always need a Wizard of Oz song when my mom calls.

3. Cardigan

Its going to actually feel like Fall today & this weekend... & all of next week.

I wasted no time.  I already am wearing my black cardigan. 

Cardigans are my favorite fall wear ... all the way through winter... into Spring.

Can't ever get enough.  & it begins today!  YAHOO!!!!


I love Julia Louis-Dreyfus.  Always have since the days of Elaine.  She's just funny... so when I saw her again on the latest award show & her kiss with Bryan Cranston... love him too... I thought, I need to find this show & watch it.  So I just finished season 1... & goodness, I forgot how amazingly awesome that lady is.  I love funny ladies.

5.  Dancing with the Stars

Everyone is all excited that Football season is here... I'm all excited that Dancing with the Stars starts Monday. After all this time, its still one of my favorite shows.  I always love the first night to see who has any sort of chance of winning... any sort of rhythm. 
Every year when it starts, I always think if I should live-blog it again. I always loved doing that... just wonder if anyone else cares about the show anymore but me... & my buddy Nathalie ;)   I know I have one DWTS buddy out there in this world.  That's good enough... someone I can text & say, "Did you just see that?!?!?"... everyone needs someone like that. :)

Do you have a fancy phone cover? ... & aren't afraid of breaking your phone?
Do you have a fun ring tone?
Are you a cardigan gal?
Are you a VEEP fan?
Will you be watching Dancing with the Stars?


  1. I have an Otterbox cover, not the cute kind. But at least it's safe, except from water. I didn't pay for that one.

    Just using the ring tones the phone has. I'm not real sure how to download the other kind and Kelli is in Florida. She always did it for me before. ha

    Don't know if I'll be watching DWTS this season. It conflicts with my Bible Study meeting. I may try to keep up with what's going on though. We'll see.

    I saw your book review on Good Reads yesterday for "Mrs. Perigrine's Home for Peculiar Children." Found it at my library for Kindle. Just started reading it. Hope it's as good as you say.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. I could spend an entire paycheck on phone covers.. there are just so many cute ones! I've had a "pretty" case from Amazon for over a year now and it holds up better than you think when you drop your phone. Hoping I didn't just jinx myself. Happy happy Friday!

  3. I can't get over how old some of the contestants are on DWTS so I'm not watching. Especially since I recognize probably two names.

    I searched a long time for a case for my iphone. I finally decided on a cute one with real flowers pressed into it. I don't know how safe it is for dropping but since I normally have it either in my purse or on my desk I'm not that worried about it.

  4. I am the same way about phone cases.I am constantly eyeing the cute ones but always end up with an otterbox. I have a problem with dropping my phones and hitting them just so on a pebble or something and the screens shatter. Grrr.

  5. After watching the Emmys, I really want to start watching Veep!! And I am the same way with my black cardigan! I can't wait to go back to CT next week and actually get to wear it! To be honest, I love it so much that I bought a short sleeve version to wear down here in SC ;)

  6. I really love when I'm in the room with the patient and some like slow jam R&B song comes on their about embarrassing you are here with your kid!

  7. Visiting from "Oh hey Friday!" It's supposed to cool down here in Texas too. Even though cool is 75... I will still probably break out my boots and leggings I'll be so excited!

  8. I fell off the DWTS bandwagon last season, but I like a few of the stars on the show this season, so I'll be watching. Have a great weekend!

  9. I agree with you on the cases. I want a cute one too but I love the fact that my phone is pretty darn safe in the double rubber thingy I have now! Have you read Let's All Be Brave? See it in your goodreads. I was thinking of reading it. We are going to be 103 degrees today but I am looking forward to being in Chicago next week and maybe get a chance to wear some sweaters! I'm still playing Moves Like Jagger as my ring tone. No I don't watch dancing but I kinda check in because my dad watches it and like to talk with him about it.

  10. I didn't watch the last season of DWTS... I think there was someone I really hate on it. But when I heard that Alfonso was gonna be on this season... I'M BACK! hahaha
