Fab Five


I have not done a Fab Five at Susanne’s – Living to Tell the Story for a long time.  I do always enjoy reflecting on my week and think it’s a great idea!

What a week I am having!!  It’s that crazy time of the year at our house.  It’s the time where my brain feels like mush, and lots of important information tend to get lost in the black hole of my brain.  Therefore this task of reflecting upon my week is somewhat difficult due to the black hole problem! 🙂

My Fab Five for the week include;

  • Finally some beautiful spring weather…..in my neck of the woods it has been cold and rainy.  Yesterday I came home from school on a lovely afternoon, and before I even changed my clothes, I plopped down in a chair on my deck and soaked in the glorious sun and listened to the sounds of the birds in the trees overhead.  I then promptly fell asleep for about 10 min.  🙂

  • I love pretzel sandwich rolls.   Our oven bit the dust, and we have been having lots of soup and sandwich nights, and everything seems to taste better on a pretzel roll!

  • I am so into this scrubber sponge now I am in the know on how people get that baked on crud off of their pyrex dishes!!!

  • To get a good work out in I often ride my cool Trek bike, I rode on Tues. night right before a storm hit.  I had my eye on the progress of the storm the entire time and made it safely back to my car just as the rain started.  The good part about the whole thing is I rode so much faster trying to beat out the storm and got a good work out in!

  • I had fun camping out in the basement with The Inventor, we were so silly and made clothes out of foil.  I quickly realized that choosing a career as a teacher was the right thing for me, and fashion design is something I could never do.  While The Inventor has a such a creative, fashion designing brain that I do not!  And here is………oh I can’t believe I am going to post this…..uh…..here is a picture of our stylin foil outfits!



  1. Hmmm… I don’t know what a pretzel sandwich roll is. Pictures please!

    I love the foil outfits. The Inventor may be a future dress designer!

  2. Sounds like a great week, nothing like a nap out on the deck in the sun and a hard bike ride.. . . nice attitude with a broken oven too 🙂

  3. love your list…especially the part about the bike ride 🙂

  4. That is why you are a good mom and teacher…you like to do silly stuff and be creative with the kids. That is awesome and I think your outfits are super cute! Great job inventor.

  5. Cute outfits!! 🙂

    I”ve never heard of a pretzel sandwich roll . . . I’ll keep my eye open for it.

    Isn’t t lovely to sit outside in the spring sunshine – I’ve been doing the same.

    Happy weekend!

  6. What a fun mom you are! I’ve heard of toilet paper dresses but never thought of foil.

    The bike ride sounds exhilarating trying to out run a storm. I have yet to get my bike out.

  7. What a great idea to camp in the basement, I often tell my daughter we should go camping in the back yard .. but havent done it yet!
    What are pretzel sand. rolls?

  8. Welcome back to Friday’s Fave Five, Sandy!

    I enjoyed your list. Hooray for scrubber sponges! Since your Tuesday night workout went so well, you might consider being a storm chaser on your Trek bike. 🙂
