Friday Night Fab Five

Hi everyone and welcome to another Friday Night Fab Five where I list 5 things I adore, am obsessed with or maybe just sort of like for the week. :D This week is a random sampling so let's get started!

1. Crystal Light Energy Wild Strawberry

I kid you not, this stuff is like my liquid crack. I got some in a swap once, tried it and was instantly addicted. Have I added this to a Fab Five before? Well, whatever. It's too good not to share again.

2. Jewel Tone Yarn

I've got this wool yarn that I decided to use for a tapestry (still a work in progress) and part of the reason I picked these gorgeous colors was how well they complemented each other. There's something about a jewel tone that makes me feel fancy.

3. Hot Summer Days

Hot Summer Days is a 2010 romantic comedy from Hong Kong. I thought it was similar to Love Actually in that you've got a few different love stories running around which intersect each other at different points. It was too cute and pretty darn funny. If you enjoy comedy and are looking for a good foreign film (it does have English subtitles) check this one out!

4. Granny Squares

Some hookers will tell you that granny squares are everything that's wrong with crochet. They're too easy, too kitschy and too ugly. Well, those hookers are crazy. The simplicity of a granny square, its retro look and infinite amount of color possibilities are exactly why I like it. There's something about hooking on autopilot that I find very soothing.

5. Game of Thrones Season 2!

ohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboy It's coming back y'all! YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!

And there you have it, another Friday Night Fab Five. FINALLY.

What are your favorites this week?

    I want to stroke those yarns, they are so zingy!

    I'd better not try the energy drink, sounds like it's a slippery slope to addiction.
