Five On Friday

It's been a busy week. We survived play group yesterday at our house. These always run hot or cold meaning sometimes there are a lot of kids and sometimes there aren't. Yesterday I had 12 kids total! That's a lot of noise especially since 9 were boys! But nothing was destroyed and we all had a nice time. Everyone liked the last minute fruit dip I made to go with the strawberries, grapes, and blueberries. It's very simple. Mix a small box of vanilla pudding mix with a small tub of cool whip. Tasty!

Since it's Friday I thought I would share 5 tips I found in Glamour magazine this month.

1- Soak dull diamonds in vodka for serious sparkle.

2- Skip using the bulky ironing board and press collars or hems (cotton only!) with your flatiron.

3- Got scuffed patent leather? Wipe with milk and then buff. It's gentle and leaves a great shine.

4- Remove pesky shoe stickers by blasting with a hair dryer for 30 seconds. Peel away.

5- If your zipper is stuck, rub a pencil on the teeth. Graphite acts as a lubricant on metal.

BREAKING NEWS: Bachelor Matt Grant & Fiancée Shayne Lamas Split
I just read my emails and, of course, I get daily People updates and learned of this news that isn't really shocking to me. Too bad. They were cute together, but I didn't think he would be able to keep up with her.

Have a nice weekend!

I won't even bother to say I told ya so on the Bachelor. :-)

Thanks for the tips! I had to read that last tip twice - I was wondering why rubbing a penil on your teeth would get your zipper unstuck. It's Friday; my brain is fried.

Have a good weekend!
