Fabulous Five Friday Favorites

We are taking part in  5 on Fridays link up.

So once again it is Saturday and I am late in linking up. I guess I dance to the beat of my own drum or I simply need to schedule better. I am thinking it is the latter.

1. My Internet Friend’s Mom Blog

If you have a few moments go over there and read She is a sweet, southern, down to earth, God loving, Mama of three andI think what I love the most about her blog is her sense of honesty about herself and her parenting. Her sense of humor, love, and devotion are at the top of my list too.

2.  Making Our Own Play Dough

Little Miss Toddler Loved it as did I. I was surprised by how quickly it all came together. It is super soft, smooth and smells so nice.  I was also surprised by how quickly Little Miss Toddler got it all over her room when I had to use the ladies room, Clean up with her help was pretty easy, though. So no harm no foul. There is something about play dough squishing between your fingers that brings you back to your own childhood. This was a favorite activity for both of us thing week. Oh, and it is taste test friendly for toddlers if you skip the sparkles though I doubt it tastes to great. 😉

Would you like to make some?

3.  Coconut Creme by Coffee Mate

My daughter has been going on and on about this and I finally gave it a try and guess what…. I LOVE it! Absolutely yummy and a bit different from my normal Mocha Peppermint or the like. Pretty sure this one will be my go to unless something better comes along you know like Pumpkin Spice in October 😉

4. Cold Pressed Coconut Oil

This winter has been terrible on my skin. The typical lotion seems to make matters worse long term. I still can not figure that one out other than the fact that most of them contain alcohol. Perhaps that is part of the issue? Everyone sings the praised of coconut oil so I jumped on that bandwagon. Guess what. It works. It works for dry skin, frizzy hair, chapped lips, diaper rashes and I am sure a whole lot of other things I have yet to dream up.

5. Quiet Mode On the House Phone

Quiet mode on the home phone is one of my very favorite things these days. We have a huge family and with my phone constantly ringing I often need to shut it off so Little Miss Toddler can nap or stay in bed undisturbed by the phone ringing at all hours of the night. I also like it to carve out some peace and quiet during my day when my head just needs a rest and I don’t want to be connected to everyone and just need to get stuff done.
