Fab 5 Friday

Woohoo for Friday, and a super long holiday weekend!!  Once again I'm joining in with Emily and the girls to lsit 5 things that made my week fabulous.

I have a widget for this at the bottom of my blog, nad like my beloved Zoompanel, this is another website where you can rack up points for free things!  Swagbucks is a search engine powered by google, so you can literally win points just by searching.  (that image I posted is the points I won just for typing in "swagbucks").  Now, I will admit that the search engine is not as well organized as Google, and I do still use Google a lot, but I don't mind visiting a few sites if it means I can get free stuff!  This week I cashed some of my points in for a $10 Barnes & Noble online gift card and was able to order 2 used books with it!  Swagbucks doesn't have the greatest selection of prizes, but there are a lot of gift cards to choose from, and also a section to donate to the Nashville flood relief.

2.  My Kitchenaid Mixer!
The two of us are best friends :).  It has gotten me through marathon batches of holiday baking, helped me turn out tons of cakes and cookies, and has not failed me once!  I really should name it--it is that important in my life.  Any name suggestions?  (and I do have it in red it!)

3.  Enchantment: the Life of Audrey Hepburn

After my less than enthusaistic feelings towards Julie Powell's Cleaving, this book is like a breath of fresh air!  I adore Audrey.  We even share the same birthday!  I've only made it a few chapters in, and I am already fascinated with her life.  As a young child she even risked her life to help Holland's resistance in World War I!  Great book, excellently written, I can't wait to read more this weekend!

4.  So You Think You Can Dance
My favorite summertime show is back!  Woohoo!  And I'm excited about how they are changing things up, and about Mary Murphy taking a back-seat role (her screaming was making me crazy!).  Last night's premeir was awesome!

5. Kashi Organic Promise Cinnamon Harvest
This is some good stuff!  I have it basically every day before work with bananas and strawberries or blueberries.  Nice and filling with a hint of sweetness, and you know that there it is made of good real ingredients :).

Well, that's it for me!  What made your week fabulous??
