Friday's Fave Five - March 4

Thanks for coming by for Friday's Fave Five! This has been a better week than last week. It's been fairly uneventful, which is a good thing right now.

FFF snowflakes
  1. At the end of last week, I called the doctor to report the side effects of my new meds.  She advised a couple of changes and, a week later, I'm feeling somewhat better.  At least I'm not having headaches all day, almost every day!
  2. For the month of February, I dedicated my blog to the theme of love.  I enjoyed the theme, and it was refreshing to take a break from my usual routine.  I appreciate the contributions of my friends Meri, Michelle, and Tammy!
  3. Last month I experimented with making raspberry cake frosting.  All I did was make vanilla buttercream (with a little less milk than usual), then add a spoonful or two of seedless raspberry jam and mix it in.  It makes a lovely shade of pink and tastes delicious, too!  This week I made a batch of chocolate cupcakes with raspberry frosting ... SO good!
  4. No more snow!  Even the snowpiles that were taller than me have melted away.
  5. New shoes, on sale.  Need I say more?  :)
What has been the highlight of your week?


  1. sounds like a great week! i gave up cake years ago but a yummy cupcake once in a while is always yummy!

  2. Was the frosting really as easy as that sounded? Because I'm not much of a cook, but that sounded both delicious and easy--which is right up my alley!

    Glad that med are working out better. Thoughts and prayers.

  3. New shoes on sale? Now that is definitely a favorite of mine!

    Glad to hear your week has been better and that the med changes were successful. Headaches all day every day are so draining.

    And now I want a chocolate cupcake with raspberry frosting!

  4. Glad you had a more uneventful week, Melissa. Feeling better is a blessing—thanking God for that. And new shoes? On sale? Good for you. :-)

  5. Glad you have found a medication that works for you.

    Chocolate cupcakes with raspberry frosting sounds wonderful. I'll have to try it.

    Yay for new shoes! Double Yay for on sale! LOL

  6. Chocolate and raspberry -- a perfect combination. It sounds like a very happy week -- chocolate and new shoes. It doesn't get any better than that!

  7. I really like the idea of the fave five! It makes for a fun post. Love the verse of the day in your sidebar. Today's was Joshua 1:9--great verse!

  8. Wonderful! It sounds like a great week for you. That frosting sounds lovely. I'm glad that things were looking up for you this week! Have a wonderful weekend.

  9. You really do have a lot to be thankful for this week! So glad you are feeling better, and new shoes are always wonderful!

  10. Melissa,

    It sounds like you had a good week. I am glad you are not suffering with headaches. I get chronic migraines and lose days. Sugar is a big trigger there is very little in my life and I would have to pass on the raspberry frosted chocolate cupcakes although they sound delicious. NJ snow is gone but history has proven we may have one last storm before spring. I hope not. I want to get out in my garden! The highlight of my week is finally finishing stage one of my bathroom renovation!

  11. So glad you're feeling better!

    I'm glad I live in an area with not much snow! Glad yours is melting.

    New shoes are fun, especially on sale!

  12. So glad to hear that you are feeling better. If you are up to it, please visit my blog. I am having a giveaway. You have a nice weekend.

  13. so glad for a better week!
    is it wrong i am more excited about your cupcakes than your shoes? lol

  14. Chocolate and Raspberries are one of my favorite combos. It is my favorite coffee flavor. The next time I make chocolate cupcakes (with 2 kids that will be sooner than later) I am going to do as you suggested and make some raspberry icing! Thanks for the great idea. And thank you for taking the time to visit my blog:-)

  15. So great to hear about the meds being adjusted and making a difference! Raspberry frosting? I would love to try that. Glad the snow is melting and SHOES ON SALE = YIPPEE! lol

  16. New shoes? Cake? Raspberry icing? No snow? That's all Fabulous! But not nearly as good as a headache free week, and feeling good physically. I hope you have another great week ahead.

  17. Well I am glad she took care of the headache problem - too many headaches and I don't care what the meds are supposed to do, they don't work!!
