Friday Night Fab Five: The Tube

Hi everyone!

Don't forget, you've got until Midnight EST U.S. time tonight to get your entries in my Blogoversary Giveaways. Links at the top of the blog! I'll announce the winners sometime tomorrow. :)

Welcome to this week's Friday Night Fab Five where I list 5 things I enjoy, adore or otherwise love for the week. This week I've got some current TV favorites and some random stuff as well. :)

1. Spartacus: Gods of the Arena

Yesssssssssssssssssssss! Spartacus is back and since Andy Whitfield was not able to return due to cancer (Screw you, cancer!), Starz was smart enough to give us a season of back story. The first episode was last week and already I can tell that it's going to be twice as violent and dirty as the first season. You can Netflix stream both the whole first season and the current season as episodes are shown...woo hoo!

2. Toot and the iPhone

So this is an older video of Toot from July 2010 where she's playing with my iPhone. I'm showing it here and now because since then she's gotten a lot smarter and I've had to nix Toot and my iPhone playing together. Primarily because one day I went to play Bejeweled Blitz and found that plus Twitter, more games, pictures and about 5 other apps had been deleted from my phone. Toot, noooooooooo! She's so lucky she's cute...

3. Craft in America

Someone's Twittering clued me in to PBS' Craft in America, a documentary series about...well...Craft in America. :P PBS was also nice enough to offer the episodes online for free. What sweeties! I love and support anything handmade and this series has been wonderful in spotlighting new craft and old traditions.

4. Anne of Green Gables

Take the 1980s, the fact that I was a pre-teen/teen, add in one melodramatic heroine and Gilbert Blythe and you've got me and my best friend dreamily sighing over every aspect of the Anne of Green Gables (and Anne of Avonlea) miniseries (Another PBS masterpiece). I recently watched this series again thanks to Netflix and I still bawled the whole time. *dreamy sigh* I so cannot wait until my girls are old enough to read the books and watch the series.

5. Snow Days

I know most of you have gotten hit by some major snow this year so far and we were lucky to get some as well! It's was Toot's first real walkabout in the white stuff and she loved it.

Well, that's it - my Fab Five for the week! I know a couple of you do a Fab Five of your own from time to time so if this is a week you'd like to share a Five on your blog, why not link up your post on the old Linky here? I'd love to see your favorites so make sure to link directly to your Fab Five post! :)

What are your favorites this week?


  1. Love your fab 5...I have NetFlix so definitely want to do the "Anne" duo! And watch the online "Craft in America" video...and the 2 videos of Toot are just 2 precious for words!

  2. Love this one...and the Toot videos are the best....she is sooooooooooo cute!!!

    You know Gavin did the same thing with my Iphone....and he deleted a video that I can never get back!!!! So now when he asks to play......I cringe and tell him that the battery is dead....bad MeMe!!!!

    Love ya girlie....have a great weekend!!!

  3. Love your Friday Night Fab Five! Especially the Toot videos. She is just too cute for words. :) I'll have to check out "Craft in America" - was not familiar with that. Can't wait to learn the winners of your giveaway - hope the whole week was a smashing success! :) Theresa

  4. Great five! I absolutely adore Anne of Green Gables. I could read those books over and over and over again. *sigh* Makes me want to go read right now.

    Happy Friday!

  5. I adore Anne of Green Gables! She defined so much of my childhood/teenagehood/ummm nowhood...

    And my babe is only four months and just the other day, hit the "resign" button on my Words with Friends game (I was winning, by the way) while nursing. I shudder to think of the future...

  6. Anne of Green Gables is one of my favourite all time shows in the world. It has so many wonderful and special memories for me. I think my love for red hair started with Anne (although i go for a more red red than a carrot red), and of course, who could not have fallen in love with Gilbert!
    Darling you really are a "kindred spirit"
    *kisses* HH

  7. Anne of Green Gables.... heart! I loved watching those VHS tapes when I was ten years old, and I love them now. A few years ago I realized I had never read the books, so I did, and I loved them too!

  8. Kids and the iPhone...;)She's cute!

    My littlest nephew says "bird" everytime I whip out my phone because he wants to watch the bird video on it. :)

  9. great fab 5. I own Anne on DVD and I LOVE it!! Although I always BAWL my head off when Matthew dies.

  10. That sounds like a great week. Kids and technology. It's pretty amazing how much they can do.
