Five on Friday

March 27, 2015

I am happy to be joining Amy from Love Made My Home for her Five on Friday Series. 

I'm taking five minutes of my day to share five things:

1)  I am so happy and honored to have guest blogged last week for Tuula from the Thrifty Rebel at her creative blog.  I shared a Pink Spring Wreath that I made for her Think Pink Monday.  

In case you missed this blog post you can see it HERE!

2)  I had fun guest blogging this week for Sarah and her lovely food blog Sarah's Kitchen.  I shared how to make an Easy Baked Chicken recipe.

If any of you missed that blog post you can see it HERE!

3)  I'm so happy and thankful for some new followers who have joined my blog recently.  I want  to welcome and thank you all.  I also would like to thank all of my loyal readers (friends) for taking the time out of your busy days to read my blog posts and and to leave such lovely comments.  I really appreciate you all and you make my day!  You all are the best!  

4)  I'm so happy to see the snow in my garden slowly disappearing and melting away.  I love that I can see the ground now.  

You can see in this photo below that I will soon have tulips and daffodils blooming.  I'm so happy that spring is here and I love to see the flowers blooming in my garden.

5)  Here you can see Bosco is looking down the street and he is waiting patiently for me to take him for his morning walk.  I tried to get a photo of him looking at me but he wouldn't look when I kept calling his name!  That silly dog hates his photo taken but I can't help trying!

That is my Five on Friday for this week and thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great weekend and have fun with whatever makes you happy.

I will be sharing this with Amy from Love Made My Home for her Five on Friday link party that she is hosting.

Ways to Follow Julie's Lifestyle

Thanks everyone and Enjoy!



  1. love your flower wreath and the budding flowers, such a long winter we have had. My freesias are all in full bloom and so very bright and cheering, although (threatened by our continual rain) Best not to look at your baked chicken photo as its lunch time here :-))

  2. And I am so thankful for you, Julie! I love the clip art about the friends being in the computer :)

    Your wreath is so charming and it was simply perfect for Tuula's Pink Monday.

    Happy weekend! Hugs!

  3. Love that springy wreath! Come on, Bosco! We want to see your cute face!!

  4. The spring wreath was a real delight, beautiful.

  5. Your spring wreath is lovely. The snow is slowly going away on my gardens, but no plants poking through yet. I’m visiting from 5 on Friday, where I’ve joined for the first time this week.

  6. Isnt it typical, pets never do as they are told, my cat is exactly the same, I don't know how others manage to get such cute pictures. Liked your wreath too

  7. The snow is melting for us, too...finally and I am so excited to see our flowers trying to poke through the ground in your yard and my own!! :)

  8. Love your FIVE, Julie. I am trying your chicken recipe this weekend.
    Not much snow left here either but we are a ways from having it green up. xo Diana

  9. Loved going through your five Julie! Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. I plan to make your Baked Chicken this week! Can hardly wait. Our grocer had chicken breasts on sale for 99 cents a lb. :) I have a few tulips coming up now also...and a few daffodils blooming. I enjoyed reading here, Julie.

  11. Great 5 Julie, whoo your chicken looks super tasty :)

  12. Great things! Bosco - look at the camera next time!! Thank you so much for joining in. I hope that you have a great weekend! xx

  13. The chicken looks great, Julie! I'm glad your snow is finally melting. Your pretty angel must be happy.

  14. So many wonderful things going on this week! I'm especially glad your weather is improving. Take care, Julie :-) Give Bosco a pet for me.

  15. Awww Bosco :) HaHaHa Happy to see the snow melting Julie. You guys deserve SPRING.

  16. I love that Bosco is shy ;).

    There's still snow here, and we may have some flurries tomorrow. Ugh! Spring is taking its time.

  17. Loved the shot of Bosco, my dog tries very hard to ignore the camera too! Your spring wreath is very pretty x

  18. I love the photo of Bosco on the old street! Congratulations on your guest hosts. The chicken looks delicious, and I love the wreath.

  19. That wreath is pretty. And how funny that Bosco doesn't like his picture taken!

  20. I love your five moments Julie. Especially the friends in the computer one, that did make me smile :-) Have a wonderful week my lovely xx

  24. Oh Julie! What a sweet, sweet post! And I just adore the picture of 'my friends being inside the computer'! So true, isn't it...? I am so thankful for all the dear friends I have had the blessing of making in the lovely world of blogging!
    And your wreath is just lovely - perfect for spring!
    Hmmm...baked chicken sounds so very good!

I've been catching up with all my friends today, and needing to read back with a lot of blogs :) I love your cheery spring wreath, and the chicken looks delicious! That Bosco is a funny little dog for not wanting his photo taken. He's a sweetheart. Have a great day Julie :)
