Friday Five

1. My Pillow

Marvin and I treated ourselves to My Pillows for Christmas this year. I have to say, I love mine and I wonder why I waited so long to get one. Truly they are uncrushable without being so firm they hurt your neck. And they can be washed in the washing machine.

2. Varsity Christmas Ornament

Here is a picture of the ornament that I purchased for Marvin. And it came in that neat little box too!

3. Basketball with the Lakers

The Priceville Lakers that is....look at number 23 on defense. That's my boy!

4. Family photo

The Canton Grimms shared this picture on their Facebook page. I hope Nana gets a copy for Christmas.

5. Note Paper

I was looking for some note paper to write notes to friends to add to my Christmas cards but finally gave up as it seemed I could not find a style that I liked. Of course the minute I mailed my cards, I found this pretty writing paper at Pimentos in Athens, Alabama.

I have been wanting a 'my pillow' so glad to know someone that has one and it is as they advertise. Love the ornament. Hope your Friday is a good day.

I too have one of the My Pillows and I really really like it too. Sweet grands...I so understand about them now.

I've wondered about those pillows too. Sound like a winner! Love the family pic and that stationary! Enjoy your day! Holiday hugs!

My husband has been wanting a my pillow but was afraid it wouldn't be as advertised, I'm glad to know it really is and I know what to buy him for Christmas.
The Canton Grimms are a lovely family and I hope you do get your copy of the picture.
That ornament is cool.

What a timely Friday Five! I will have to look into the My Pillow (I need a new pillow). Love the picture of the Canton Grimms and hopefully you will find it under your tree from Santa! Oh Arlene, I like your note pad. You might want to check out American Stationery; they offer a "DIY" (aka customize) option. What a sweet ornament you gifted Marvin! Have a fabulous Friday!

I've often wondered about those My Pillows--they certainly do advertise a lot, don't they? Love the family photo--such a beautiful Christmas dress your sweet granddaughter is wearing :)

That is a very sweet and awesome picture of the Canton Grimms!! Sure hope they send you one for Christmas!

I have a feeling you will surely get a copy of that great photo for Christmas! Great not paper! Glad you like your My Pillows. We got Tempurpedic pillows with our mattress and are quite happy with them.

Dianna said...

Arlene, thank you for sharing about your My Pillow. I've seen that ad on the television and wondered how good they really did feel. We have Tempurpedic pillows and I love mine, but you have me wondering if the My Pillow would be as good.

Love the family picture of your son's family.

Mary said...

Arlene, I have to use a real flat down pillow so the my pillow didn't work for me, too poofy. I'm happy to hear your satisfied with it.

Love the family photos, #23 looks like a real professional player!!

Mrs.T said...

We are in the market for new pillows. Good to hear your recommendation.

Landon does look like a real pro, and I love the photo of Charles, Nancy and Audrey. The one a few days ago of just Audrey and Daddy was gorgeous, too.

Arlene, Bob and I both have a My Pillow and love them! We've had them a couple of years now and they have held up well and wash beautifully!
