1)
This is a water fountain that was near our hotel in DC the last time we went (spring)
It looks really pretty but for some reason the whole area smelled really, really bad so we couldn't enjoy it for long!

2) Braden and Dalton's first football game was tonight (Thursday)...we beat our rival school 44-0! The last 2 weeks were scrimmages.

3) The boys and I watched Stranger Things on Netflix. It was weird but good...if you like scary you should watch it! The little boy Finn is Christian's girlfriend's cousin! That looks odd written out ;)

4) I also started watching Cedar Cove on Netflix. It's a Hallmark series and a little corny but I like it...I like the characters and watch about an episode a day if I get a chance. There are only 3 seasons to it and I am in season 3. Andie MacDowell is in it.

5) A few weeks ago Nick was out of town and the boys were off doing something and I felt like watching a movie. I found An Unfinished Life ...I almost didn't want to watch it because it had Jennifer Lopez in it and I'm not a huge fan of hers but it also had Robert Redford in it and I do really like him. I am glad I chose to watch it though because I ended up liking it and Jennifer Lopez ended up being likeable ;)

Well that does it for my 5 this week! I hope you will play along! Post 5 randoms, anything you like, pictures, links, stories, whatever and link up and visit others! Have a great weekend!

  1. 1) The fountain is pretty. They have something similar at the art gallery in DC which you can see from the cafeteria. It is steeper and it comes towards the big picture window. Couldn’t tell you if it was smelly or not because we were inside looking out ;)

    2) Congratulation on the boys first football game and win. That must have felt great.

    3) I have watched Stranger Things and enjoyed it. I thought everyone’s acting was excellent, including the young actors. Interesting about the connection to Finn. I shall look forward to the second season. Thought Winona Ryder was excellent as the mother.

    4) I will have to watch Cedar Cove. The last time I saw Andie MacDowell in anything was the 1996 movie “Michael” about the angel played by John Travolta. It was one of my favorite movies for a long time and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    5) I haven’t seen An Unfinished Life either and will add it to my list. There are times when I do enjoy a movie, usually when everything is quiet and it’s been a while since I saw one.

    Great Friday Five Tanya. Thanks for hosting. I have linked up.

  3. Cool shot of the fountain - glad we can't smell it!
    What a win for your boys' team!
    Thanks for hosting and have fun!

  4. One wonders what was amiss with the fountain. The only thing I've ever seen Jennifer Lopez in that was enjoyable was Out Of Sight.

  5. Your fountain picture is so cool! Almost like a trick of the eye. The water gives the steps such an unusual texture. YES, we watched all the Cedar Cove shows! It is kind of old fashioned and maybe boring, but we loved it! Especially that rascal Warren Saget. We have been waiting all summer for it to return. So I guess it is over? I cannot remember, I think the story lines were not wrapped up. I will have to watch Unfinished Life! I am not really a fan of J Lo either, but she can act.

  6. The fountain look cool but too it stunk. Football season already, good that they won. It's a new year so maybe they will win it all. Good luck!

  8. I couldn't get on the blogs at all yesterday! It really scared me. I don't know what was preventing it, but I thought I had lost my blogs for good. A defrag and disk cleaning this morning and we're back! So that's why I didn't link yesterday. Your Five look great...I will go back and check the links!

  10. Maybe it was chemicals reacting with the heat of the sun causing the odor. That is a shame. Bud and I continue to look for that house. We are not going to give up. genie
