5 is hard to find....


This week was hard to find five things I loved, but that's the point.

#1
The most important ingredient
in the formula of success
is knowing how to get along with people. 

Theodore Roosevelt

-I have lots of changes coming in my life that aren't blogger friendly quite yet and this quote helped me put things in perspective.

#2 Guilty Pleasures

-Starbucks gives me so many options for the frou-frou drinks but, quite simply I just love half/half or heavy whipping cream in my coffee.  I feel a little guilty when I use the heavy whipping cream but it just brings joy to my cup of joe in the morning.

#3 Zicam

-The commercial says, "It actually shortens the Cold!" Yep, sure does....The key is to start swabbing the minute you start sneezing. I started the, "uh-oh I feel something coming on here" last Thursday and by Monday it was about done.  Some people claim it's psychosomatic I don't give a rip, it makes me feel better when I take it and I swear by it.

(Any rep reading my blog that would like me to give a review of their product just contact me.) LOL....

#4. Good Deals

-Frugal by nature, I love getting a good deal.  I found many good deals here recently.  Nike tops and shorts for my boys and for me a very cool long sleeve Lucky Brand t-shirt.  They have very cool tops, but this girl isn't paying full price for one.

#5

Have a great weekend!

ah... so things are a little swirly for you, huh? We need to catch up...
I was thinking I'd have a tough time this week with my 5, got another day left to search, though.

#2 - Yeah, screw Starbucks for their overpriced shiz. I need to get you an aerolatte - it's a little baby whip (~$20) that makes your milk all frothy and good. Oh yeah, it's the bomb.

I'm a cream (1/2 & 1/2) in my coffee fan too. And quite frankly, nobody makes it quite the way I like it....except me!

Wes said...

Cream and buttah are my two FAV cooking ingredients! Oops, did I say that out loud? ;-)

I love cream. And organic means healthy, right? ;) Have a great weekend!

Gotta Run said...

I use to be a Starbucks fan but now that I make it at home I am amazed at how much I am saving! Need a good "cup of LOVE" in the morning to get my day started.

HAHAHA!! Your cream is TOTALLY whipped!!1!

I know how it feels.

On days like today, when Teh 'Bride, commenting on MY OWN BLOG, threatens to meat punch me ... yeah, I totally know how that cream feels.

Have a good weekend sister!

I love the last one. When we were on our cruise, it was amazing to see how many people stood around and waited for the elevators, when the stairs were right there!

Okay I LURVE TJMAXX! There is a TJ MAXX Home and Goods store in the cities that I have been to twice. They have really reasonable workout clothes... and I like their huge purse selection there! Great list! I might start copying you with this Friday Five business... such a great way to share things with others!

Love that sign about using the stairs! And I don't shop much but have found some killer deals at TJMaxx too.
