Five Things Friday + 1

In an effort to achieve my 2012 goal of blogging at least 2 times a week I’m going to try and mix things up. I mean you can only read PB stories so many times before you stop coming back for more. 
I’m gonna share 5 things that I have enjoyed this week.

#1 I’m loving my new Bath and Body Works Marshmallow Peppermint  candle.  I’m usually a Yankee Candle girl but I just couldn’t pass up the amazing year end sales that BBW was having. I started burning this last night and I could smell it throughout my entire 2000sqft house. It is a 3 wick candle so it burnt evenly no concave indent with wax wasted on the side. The best part about this candle was waking this morning hours after the flames had been blown out and still being able to smell it! I have noticed that it does seem to burn a bit quicker than my Yankee Candles but hey it was significantly cheaper. pBBW1-11153270v275

#2 Getting tweets and e-mails from EatThisNotThat and WomensHealthMag (for any of you on twitter I wrote the names as they are on twitter so you can follow them too!)
They give you really good advice, facts and information to keep you motivated and informed about your health, body, and food.
#3 Unjury Protein Mixes especially the chocolate flavor. Unjury really helped me last the 3 days of liquids. I have both the chocolate and the strawberry flavors but enjoy the chocolate the most. To me the chocolate tastes pretty darn close to a nice cold chocolate YooHoo. The strawberry is good to but has a very faint hardly there flavor. I mix the strawberry with sugar free lemonade mix and it is yummy!
Here is a quick frozen coffee drink I make in the A.M.
1 scoop Unjury Chocolate
7oz cold coffee
1oz milk
2tsp Splenda
Blend it all together and it is delish!
#4 The Toy Story Movie Series. I really have no choice in this because my little one is obsessed with it. Thankfully SB and I enjoy watching it with him at night as well.
I love Rex “What if Andy gets another dinosaur? A mean one? I just don't think I can take that kind of rejection!”
#5 Storage Wars. SB and I are kinda hooked on this show. I normally would only watch it when my Step Dad or Nana visit but well we watch it now nightly. It might be because of this guy below, Barry. He would be one awesome Grandfather or Sugar Daddy if you are into that kinda thing.
I’m also gonna include a number because well it is my blog and I can do what I want.
#6. I can’t stop playing Words With Friends. SB got me hooked on it and now I have everyone I know playing it just to keep me going. It is like crack baby and I wanna be your dealer. Anyone else play? If you don’t you need to start!

So what have you enjoyed this week?



  1. First, how funny you put something about Bath&Body up because I just dropped $45 bucks on new lotions, sprays, and shower gels. I get their emails and it's just soooo wrong. I should unsubscribe. It's like every week is $10 off here, half price there. UGHHHHH.

    Second, WWF!!!!! Yes, you commented on my blog this. I've now got it on my phone and Kindle! Here's my name: laura.belle.w Find me any time!!

  2. Barry is my favorite! Love him and his skeleton gloves :)

  3. I LOVE Storage Wars and Barry is my favorite!!!

    I've gotta disagree on the Unjury though. I hate that stuff (but truth be told, I've yet to find a protein anything that I can stomach)

  4. I've enjoyed going out on dates, and drinking too much. LOL

    Well, mostly, on the dating.

  5. I'm obsessed with WWF as well.
    I'm with Manda though.. Unjury was not my fave of the protein shakes! I, however, LOVE BSN Dessert Protein!
    B&BW Candles are awesome! I'm bummed I missed that sale!
