The Friday Five, A new way to make grilled cheese, Salt N Pepa , tents, healthy snack and a quote

It's Friiiiiiiiiiday, and while I can't help but love me some weekend, I feel like this week went entirely
 too fast. It's almost the end of summer and I want to soak up every last second of it. Too bad I slept
through yesterday...word to the wise, when they say wean yourself off of a medicine, heed their
advice. 48 hours cold turkey and I wanted to die. Nightmares about my whole facebook friend list
and zaps of dizziness are not fun. Weaning I shall go. 
1)I have a new favorite snack. Frozen bananas with Peanut butter, they are so ridiculously good. The

trick is to only freeze them for about 10 minutes. Or pop them in the microwave for a few seconds to

get them a tad softer. I'm using my fav organic pb I blogged about here, mmm so good! Just slice the

bananas add some pb and freeze, easy peasy lemon squeezey!
               I know the pic shows choc. chips, but I eliminated those!

2) Sometimes, ok half of the time I burn grilled cheese...but after this little pin I never have to use a

pan again. You just toast on the side! Don't ask me why but every time I see this picture I have

to fight off the urge to sing Kriss Kross "Jump."  Probably the same urge that when E needs to push

something like his helmet clasp at Tball practice (in front of all of the other parents mind you) I told

him he just needed to," Push it, push it real good."  I should be ashamed, but I'm not. Ain't not shame

in my Salt n Pepa game!  Did I mention I'm a Tball helper mom?!

3)I have a new exfoliating face wash that I AM IN LOVE with.  My friends bought it first, raved

about it, I waited 24 hours and when they seemed ok (jk Kristin and Christa, kind of), I went ahead

and bought it.  It's the Botanics brand from target and it makes my face feel like a baby's butt.

4) I slept in a tent in my house all last weekend.  The boys were supposed to go camping, it rained,

lemonade out of lemons.  The tent went up, my back went out. Although I did finally watch Toy Story

3 in it's entirety and man, what a cute little movie!  Flashlights were used in full force for E's benefit,

despite the presence of light switches.   The only bad thing is E now thinks it's acceptable to always

sleep in a tent in our home.

5)Isn't this the truth?


  1. thanks for the scrub tip. I'm gonna need some soon!
