friday four

For most people, Friday’s just the day before the weekend (name that movie). But for Wowie, Friday is blog day. And Friday Four day. Here we go…

1. Graham’s Good and Bad News

Graham scribbled a few lines on a piece of paper and then assembled us all for an announcement…

I have some good news and some bad news. First, the good news. We are getting a hot tub.

Bad news. We’re not getting a dog.

We aren’t getting a hot tub or a dog. Haven’t even discussed it. I’m not sure where that kid comes up with this stuff. Although I really, REALLY want an outdoor shower. Like this one…

It is more practical than a hot tub and less work than a dog. Moving on…

2. Easy Weeknight Pasta


I’ve made this twice, and it is so good.

1 package of diced pancetta (in the deli section) or chopped bacon
2-3 chopped green onions
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
olive oil
salt and pepper

Ditalini or Elbow pasta
grated parmesean

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Saute the pancetta or bacon over medium heat. After it is slightly browned, add the onion, garlic and about a tablespoon of olive oil. Add a little salt and pepper. When the onions have cooked down a bit, turn off the burner. Add the hot pasta directly to the pan. Also add about a half a cup of the pasta water. Grate parmesean over the top and dig in. Seriously. How easy is that. Graham said, “This is the goodest thing I have ever ate.” Or maybe that was Steve.

3. Fresh Sugar Cherry


Woo hoo… a new Fresh Sugar Lip color. This one is more red than Passion and less orange than Coral. I love it. But, they could probably launch one called Baby Poop and I would buy it.

4. Gap Camo Skinny Jeans

The ole Gap was having 30% off earlier this week, and I couldn’t resist these camo skinny jeans.


Duck Dynasty is the new black. Everyone needs camo pants, Jack.

It’s time to call a spade a spade. Friday Four is now Five thanks to A. Liz and her link up. Seriously, y’all check out her post and all the other Five on Friday links.

5. The original Friday Four

Everything on my first list is still on current rotation around here. I took the summer off from Body Jam but started back a couple of weeks ago. I am seriously drenched when I leave there.

See? Outdoor shower. Totally practical.

I work out.
