I'm going to keep my alliterative twist on the Five Favorites, and mention something in each of the five categories: Fitness, Fun, Food, Fashion and Faith.
I took a Step Aerobics class this morning, which I haven't done in years...I didn't even know they still existed. I took a step class pretty much everyday in college and the summers I was home and joined a gym. I used to be addicted. Anyway, my point is that I love switching things up with exercise, and I think it's the best way to get in shape/stay in shape. I try to do something different every day.
My kids love playing Rush Hour, it's a one person game, and it's great for mandatory "rest time" while the baby naps. Fun Mom of the Year, I know.
Every once in a while I get a hankering for Italian but I don't really want to eat tons of carbs, and so I make eggplant parmesan.
The recipe is here, and it's awesome...crispy pieces off eggplant, melty cheese, homemade tomato sauce. Yum!
Another Walmart swimsuit that's cheap and flattering! I think it's sold out online, but I've seen them in stores. It hides all those trouble spots and still looks like a cute dress. Win!
Guardian Angels are my favorite!
Do you pray to your Guardian Angel daily? I've been saying this prayer since I was a kid and my Aunt Rose taught me on a visit over from Ireland. I think my Guardian Angel (whose name is Gabriel, I think) is probably a little sick of me because I'm always asking him to protect me when I'm alone. But, I do remember to thank him (and the Holy Spirit) whenever I remember something I had to do, or barely miss an accident, etc. Whenever I'm pregnant, I LOVE the fact that I have two guardian angels with me and the baby at all times. Anyway, I guess you could say I have a devotion to guardian angels, probably inherited from my mom who, as a child, used to leave room one her seat for her guardian angel to sit.
Now hop off to Hallie's for more favorites!
