It's that time again.... Yup, It's FRIDAY! And a Fabulous one at that!
I hope this week has been great for you! I want to share a few of the fabulous things going on in my life, however, first things first, the winner of The Pioneer Woman cooks cookbook. I used the random.org generator with entries #1-#72 and this is what it gave me:
SOOO, congratulations Anna!! Please email me @ BrownEyedBell11@yahoo.com with your contact info so I can get this fabulous book in the mail to you!
Now, onto other fabulous things:
The car wash that we had last Saturday for Kidney for Kristy was a success. We raised just over $300 and now the grand total raised is $1068 of $5500! We are not even half way, but are definitely making a dent.
I was home from work early enough on Tuesday to enjoy watching the new Teen Mom episode. I know, I know, this show is absolutely ridiculous, but I am sucked in. I only watch the seasons that have Catelynn, Maci, Farrah and Amber on it.
Greek Yogurt is my latest obsession. I am loving Chobani greek yogurt right now. A friend and coworker gave me my 1st taste about two weeks ago and I have been hooked.
Miss Indie posted a fabulous Super Mario Brothers inspired cake (that she found via pinterest) this week that I adored.
Saturday is the premiere of The Pioneer Woman's new cooking show on the Food Network. Click HERE to see a 6 minute preview. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!
What happened to lead up to this event was not fabulous in any way, but the bond between human and dog IS fabulous. Read my post on 4paws4love yesterday to see a touching story of a Lab that did not want to leave the side of his fallen master, a Navy SEAL that was killed in the August 6th attack in Afghanistan. May he rest in peace. <3
Yesterday my husband and I were able to help one of my room mates friends, someone we'd never met. My roomie texted me around 4pm to see what I was up to, because a friend of hers was stranded on a main road near our house. She had ran out of gas and wasn't going to get paid until tomorrow. She's a school teacher and only gets paid once a month. I can't imagine budgeting for the entire month. Anyways, we came to her rescue and surprised her by putting more gas in her SUV after she got it cranked and into the nearest gas station. She was not expecting us to put as much as we did in her tank and had tears because she'd now be able to make it all the way home AND back to work the next day without fear of being stranded again. Like my husband said "I drive a truck, and I know a few dollars doesn't go far these days". It brought a smile to both of our faces being able to help someone in need.
Tonight there will be a couponing class that I set up at my church. I think helping others learn to save money and be coupon savvy is just fabulous.
OH! OH! This week I learned how to make a button for a blog.... I am definitely a novice, but to have a vague idea of what I am doing is fabulous to me because now I don't constantly have to ask my friend DaisyJo to make them for me.

And with that being said, I plan to start a new link up next Thursday, September 1st. I am going to stop doing Fabulous Friday's and start doing Thankful Thursday's. I love doing fabulous friday's, however I think it is extremely important to remind ourselves of all the things we have to be thankful for, from the small stuff, all the way to the major things. And what better way to do that than a link up? Besides, most stuff I am thankful for anyways is quite fabulous in my eyes. I hope that you will start thinking of some of the things YOU are thankful for, and possibly link up next Thursday. I took over Fabulous Friday's from Laura over at Between The Lines and I enjoyed doing so but I am very much looking forward to having a place I can sing praises to all the stuff I am thankful for :)
|PS - I made this too :)|
