Five Things Friday

Recently, I've been really into watching Gilmore Girls.  I don't know what it is about that show that is so addicting, maybe it's the mother-daughter relationship or their priceless witty comments, but all I know is that I LOVE it.  I have seriously been considering buying all 7 seasons, I told you I'm addicted, I love feel good shows!  Today's FTF is all about TV shows, here goes:

1.  My favorite TV show at the moment is "Gilmore Girls" (re-runs are on TV).

2.  One of my favorite TV shows as a kid was a show called "Take Part" it was a Canadian kid show and they use to teach you different crafts and cooking recipes throughout the show.  One time I sent in my craft and won a prize, I felt pretty cool because my craft was featured on TV!  It was a plate mask, if I remember correctly, haha!

3.  An old TV show I never get sick of watching even though I've seen all the episodes is "Sabrina The Teenage Witch", there are some episode in which I know all the lines, it's sick, I tell you!  I just love this show so much!  Melissa Joan Hart is awesome in it!

4.  A TV show I hated as a kid was Roxanne, I just never thought it was that funny, I don't know why it was so popular.   

5.  When I was a kid I wasn't allowed to watch The Simpsons!! I was super sheltered!! Imagine back then the Simpsons was a "bad" show and today there are much worse cartoons out there, oh how TV has changed!

** My favorite thing from around the web this week is this candy cane popcorn! I am seriously making it this weekend!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Five Things Friday

Since Thanksgiving was yesterday and today is "Black Friday" I figured today's Five Things Friday could be a mash up of both, so here goes!

1.  My favorite part about Thanksgiving is how low key the day is.  I love how you get to spend it with family, eating and just relaxing :)

2.  A tradition my family has on Thanksgiving is we always eat turkey sandwiches.  I'm from El Salvador and turkey is eaten in sandwiches with Salsa and a bunch of veggies and a sauerkraut like slaw.   So every year for Thanksgiving we always have turkey sandwiches we never have any side dishes!

3.  I always (always/never/sometimes) go Black Friday shopping.  I'm not like a crazy Black Friday shopper but I like to go out that day and buy cheap PJ's and sometimes just random things.

4.  This year for Black Friday I will probably go to Macy's with my Mom she loves going there on Black Friday and I always go with her!

5.  This year I am thankful for my fiancee for being so patient and loving with me, my parents who always support me in anything I do, my sisters for gifting me with my amazing nephews and nieces, my friends who are always there to listen and share laughs with, my cousins for always making me smile, my aunts and uncles for always thinking of me, my grandmothers for being such strong women and for all the new people I encounter who are always so kind.

** My favorite things from around the web this week is these pie crust cookies, they look kinda amazing, ha!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy shopping!

Five Things Friday

Hi guys! How was your week? There were all sorts of random things I had to do all grouped together this week. One of those things was going to the dentist, so this post is all about teeth!

1. I don't mind (like/hate/don't mind) going to the dentist. It's not something I enjoy terribly, but it's nice getting your teeth cleaned! Unless it's time to get x-rays...those things they use are so huge, sometimes it makes me gag.

2. Something unusual about my teeth is that my mouth was too small to fit all the adult teeth, so they had to pull out like 4 of them to make room, and remove another one surgically that would have come in sideways!

3. I have (have/haven't) had to wear braces. For 4 years! And for a number of months I also had to wear a Herbst appliance at the same time, which is supposed to fix your bite, but it only ruined mine since nothing was wrong with it in the first place. Ugh!

4. My worst dental experience was when a dentist was trying to yank out one of my teeth with a pliers or something, but she was not strong enough to get it out quickly, and didn't give me enough numbing stuff so it was quite unpleasant. The tooth eventually broke when she kept grabbing on it with the pliers so much! Plus my mom was standing there watching the whole time and looking really horrified, which I at the time thought was also very embarrassing!

5. My favorite thing about visiting the dentist is other than clean teeth, I liked it when I was a kid and they had that foamy fluoride thing you bite on for a minute or two, and then you go rinse your mouth. I always got bubble gum flavor and thought it was fun haha!

**My favorite thing from around the web this week is: these pincushions!!! I love them all so much, I can't even decide which one I like best! They are all so extraordinary...someday when I feel like splurging I will have to pick one!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Five Things Friday

I went to a work seminar/meeting this week and they talked a whole lot about social media, so it got me thinking a little bit about my social media habits.  So today's Five Things Friday is all about social media:

1. My first experience with social media was Facebook, I've had an account since 2004, way back when Facebook was only for people in college.  I opened an account summer of freshman year when my High School friend told me it was a must have and so I was sucked in. But now Facebook has become a place where I mostly keep in touch with family.

2. I prefer Twitter (Twitter/Facebook) because I love how concise twitter is, it is much more short and to the point and I love all the witty things people say on there!

3.  My favorite social media avenue is/are blogs! I love love love love LOVE to read blogs, especially style and craft blogs!

4.  My favorite thing about social media is how you can keep in touch with people or find someone you lost touch with.  My family lives all over the place and I don't have time to call them or text them regularly so it's nice to see what they are up.  Oh, I also love how you can reach out to your favorite brands, celebrities, bloggers, authors, etc. 

5.  My least favorite thing about social media is people get TOO opinionated.  Don't get me wrong, I think it's great people have their opinions and are not afraid to convey them and I actually don't mind reading them but I hate being bombarded continuously with them or when people's comments become too disrespectful for general audiences, some level of respect is needed.  My advice is: don't overkill the subject and respect others!!

**My favorite thing from around the web this week is this DIY dream catcher from P.S. I Made This.  I totally want to make one, I use to make these in elementary school and I remember always having one above my bed when I was younger.  I think it's definitely time to re-live that by making one for myself soon!

This weekend I plan on relaxing and celebrating my 1 year engagement anniversary with my fiance, it will be the only time we get to celebrate it, since once we get married we'll be celebrating our wedding anniversary instead ;)

What are your plans for the weekend?

Five Things Friday

Happy November everyone! How was your Halloween? One thing I did to celebrate was watch silly horror movies - The Faculty, Scream, and Scream 2. Anyway, the Scream movies made me think about telephones, so that's what this week's blanks are about...enjoy!

1. I prefer texting (calling/texting) more. I usually hate talking on the phone because it's so hard to hear people on my phone.

2. The last person I called was the vet to schedule an appointment for my cat, haha.

3. Something I once did with my phone by accident is calling people with my phone in my pocket happens every once in a while. Luckily I haven't done anything like text something embarrassing to the wrong least not yet!

4. The weirdest wrong number call/text I got was when someone was obviously trying to ask the person they meant to text to dinner for a date!

5. At work I answer the phone by saying the name of the lab I work in, haha.

**My favorite thing from around the web this week is: This one-legged man's Halloween costumes - what a funny and creative guy!

Have a great weekend everyone!
