Five Favorites

I'm finally linking up with Five Favorites which is being hosted today at Camp Patton.  So, what are my Five Favorites this week?

1.  After this incident last week, I painted my toenails my all time favorite polish color - OPIs I'm Not Really A Waitress.  This color is perfect for fall and really any time of the year.  It's a nice change from the Wild Strawberry I've been wearing all summer and has me in the mood for cooler weather.

2. These Lauren Conrad flip flops from Kohl's have been my favorite pair of shoes this summer.  The silver color is perfect.  It goes with every thing and is so much cuter than a plain black pair of flops. (Although I do have a pair of those as well.)  I love them so much in fact, that I just ordered another pair from Kohl's because they are currently on sale for only $12.99!  I'll have a brand new pair ready and waiting in my closet for next spring!

3. Last year, Sarah had to memorize all of her multiplication tables.  And she did a great job - she got a 100 on every test!  However, she then proceed to "forget" them over the summer.  Now that school is back up, she is being tested weekly on her math facts so we are having to review them.  Her test consists of completing 100 or more problems in 5 minutes.  So I've been using this website:


to generate math problems for her. It's quick, it's easy and that's all I can ask for during homework time!

4. As an early birthday present, Jennifer got me a Ninja blender.  I have used this blender every day since she got it for me a couple of month ago.   I use it every morning to make my Purple Monkey smoothie.  This blender chops through frozen bananas and frozen blueberries like butter.  And the best part?  It comes with a single serving size blender cup so I can make just enough for me without having to dirty up the larger blender cup!  Best. Present. Ever.

5. My husband!  Okay, I'm sure everyone would include their husband in a list of favorite things but y'all, isn't he just the cutest thing?  I snapped this picture of him last night.  The kids had just gone to bed and he got on his phone to FaceTime with Sarah.  I just thought that was the cutest thing.  (They both think they're pretty special with their iPhone and iPod.  Peter and I think we're pretty special with our Android devices.  Whatevs...) He misses the kids when they aren't with us...even if they are just upstairs in bed.  I on the other hand... ;)

To see what everyone else is favoring this week, head over to Camp Patton.

That is one of my favorite OPI colors as well.
We adore our ninja as well as our apple products. :)

I just painted my toes a similar color of OPI! Great minds think alike. And by "painted my toes," I mean had someone else paint my toes. I'm due tomorrow and...ginormous. :)
