Five Faves - Jumping on the bandwagon

Joing Hallie and the rest of the ladies for my five faves this week!

 This chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I first saw it on a blog and then searched Pinterest to "pin it."  I make it all the time for when we have guests.  Last night I made them because one of the priests from our parish came to dinner.  He asked me, more than once,  if they were homemade because they tasted to good and looked so perfect.  Seriously, go make these today.  You will not regret it.

2. Mary Kay Miracle Set
I have always had skin that looked like a teenager's.  I had tried and tried many different skin care products over the years and the Mary Kay Miracle Set has been the only thing to keep my skin clear and looking good.  The worst part?  When I run out and have to wait a week for the reorder . . .my skin will inevitably break out!
 
Yesterday I was listening to classical music while cleaning the house.  Vivaldi was playing.  My 6 year old came into the kitchen and began reading.  He suddenly looked up and said, "Mom, this is Vivaldi."  I was amazed.  We have done composer studies and read great books on classical music, but I really have the Classical Kids CD series to thank for his ability to know different classical pieces.

Classical Kids are fictional stories.  The composers are in the stories and the story gives true details about the composer.  The composer's pieces are played throughout the story.  They are engaging and fun and my boys have LOVED them. 

4. Spotify
I love being able to listen to music on Spotify.  The thing I like the most is being able to listen to cheesy 80's and 90's songs that I would never want to own, but just want to listen to once for nostalgic purposes.

5.  This 5 year old!!



It is so hard to believe that my "baby" turned 5 this week!!  Perfect way to end my FIVE favorites . . . with my FIVE year old!!

  2. Aw, happy birthday! I should look into Spotify for that same reason! I always wonder why there are no radio stations that play 90's music!

  7. I honestly have not made Chocolate Chip cookies for the last 18 years (since I married my husband who loves to make chocolate chip cookies!) but I may have to try this recipe and see what happens:)
