High Five Friday

Here are my top Five random stories/moments/jokes from the week:

1) Lent has been going pretty well. Giving up sweets has been the hardest, but at least Phil is suffering with me. The older boys have given up candy, which I think is so cute.

2) I got a great compliment the other night at the gym...a lady who always seems to take the same aerobics classes as I do was complaining that she had gained 8 pounds and now weighs 138. I looked at her thin physique and said that I would LOVE to weigh 138. To which she replied "What???? You look like you weigh in the 120's!" Hahahaha, she's about 30 pounds off ;)

3) A Catholic joke (no offense, alright?):

Two old Jewish men are strolling down the street one day, when they happen to walk by a Catholic church. They see a big sign posted that says, “Convert to Catholicism and get $10."

One of the Jewish men stops walking and stares at the sign. His friend turns to him and says, “Murray, what’s going on?”

“Abe,” replies Murray, “I’m thinking of doing it.”

Abe says, “What are you, crazy?”

Murray thinks for a minute and says, “Abe, I’m going to do it.”

With that, Murray strides purposefully into the church and comes out twenty minutes later with his head bowed.

“So,” asks Abe, “did you get your ten dollars?”

Murray looks up at him and says, “Is that all you people think about?”

4) I brought Maggie to the doctor yesterday for her 15 month checkup and she weighs about 27 pounds. I asked him about her lack of speech (she says 'Mama', 'Dada', and just recently 'nana' for banana). He said that the average 16 month old says 4 words, so not to worry yet. Phew!

5) I am addicted to these lately:

When it comes to addictions, I know it could be a LOT worse, but I tend to eat a whole can in one sitting (unless John-Paul is around, because then I am forced to share). I do rinse them off in water just to reduce any caloric consumption from the light syrup they are in. They are so yummy, and I normally hate canned fruit, but I am so glad I found these. Try them!


  1. I think that joke is funny.
    I may be telling it today.

  2. Hi Colleen! Great job giving up the sweets! I think it's cute that your boys have given up candy. Are they having a hard time?

    And your new favorite thing -- yummy! That's not too bad of an obsession!
