Fab five friday

I considered skipping this week due to a case of the grumps and some loopiness from pain meds, but then i got on here and all my other fab-five peeps are posting, and i didn't want to feel left out ;)  So, once again I am joining Emily to post 5 things that made life fabulous this week!

1.  My George:

I adore this George Foreman grill that we got for our wedding!  I use at at least once a week, generally more often.  It's got waffle plates, grilling plates, and a baking plate that basically works as a griddle and you can even do cookies on it (though i haven't attempted that...)  I use it a ton for making hot sandwiches and quesidillas, and occasionally eggs and breakfast sandwiches.  And, most importantly, the plates are removable and dishwasher safe--woohoo!

2.  My Ipod Touch
I'm not fancy enough for an iphone or ipad, but I adore my ipod touch!  From being able to check my email or google something in bed (we have a no tv or computer in the bedroom rule) to storing pictures, and most importantly, to holding tons of music to play while I'm at work, I love this little guy!  I literally cannot work without music.  I've tried and I can't concentrate and I get all agitated.  So I keep my ipod plugged into the work computer and play to my heart's content!

3.  Potato soup

After having one of my wisdom teeth pulled, I am currently living on this.  Filling and delicious, and I don't have to chew.  perfect :).  I did puree my potatoes this time so there are no lumps to chew through.

4.  Scentsy Mayflowers scent

I adore this spring scent--it smells like roses and makes me so happy!  My favorite so far, and it's pink!

5.  Lortab

Okay...maybe something is wrong with me since I sometimes list pharmaceuticals as my favorites...but  these are really helping after the wisdom tooth removal.  It actually went very smoothly and I think that having them pulled rather than cut out is definitely the way to go!  They were only able to pull one, so I have to do this 3 more times, but it was over in about 15 minutes.  The worse part was that due to my tiny mouth, it took him a while to even get to an angle where he could get a good hold of the tooth...and then the crunching sound as it detached.  *shudder*  Oh well, they drugged me up and now I'm resting for a few days. (oh yeah, i've managed to have a cfs flare up at the same time with swollen lymph nodes and fever and all, so that is no fun either)

What made your week fabulous?


  1. I would love to have a number 1 and a number 2. I want you to teach me to make number 3 and I want to smell number 4 and I want the extras of number 5 when you are done with it :) Love you and I hope you are having a better day.

  2. nothing wrong with lortabs hehehe :D great list! my boyfriend's boss bought him an ipod touch. his boss won't give it to him until he finishes the company website. what an incentive! hope you're feeling okay today :)

    my week as made fabulous by some really awesome weather the past few days. we usually don't get much of a spring...the temps go right to the 90's and it feels like summer but we've been getting 75 degree days and it feels so nice!
