Five for Friday

Hello and welcome to my Five for Friday! I am linking up with Cup of Tea , Della Devoted , and Bright on a Budget!

1. I ordered this fabric defuzzer on Amazon and it is so handy! I have a lot of cardigans and knit tops, which all start to pill after a while. The clothes are otherwise in great shape, just have started to pill. This worked so well at removing the pilling! If you don't have one you need to buy it! It's so inexpensive too!
2. We had a bit of exciting news around my house this week; my sister got her black belt in Tae Kwon Do! I would post a picture, but I didn't get that great one with her and her belt. It took her a little over 3 years, but she finally got it!

3. I had some leftover egg whites from making pudding last week, and with my sister getting her black belt, I thought I would make a cake to celebrate! I used this recipe and I freaking forgot the baking powder! I can't believe I did that! I read through the recipe I don't know how many times and just missed it and didn't remember until it was half way baked. Despite the fact the cake didn't rise and was dense, it still tasted pretty good. I'm sure it will be even better next time! 
4. Do any of you listen to podcasts? I'm all caught up on Generation Why and Thin Air. I've been listening to Stuff You Missed In History Class and that is pretty interesting. I like listening to podcasts when I'm driving to work. What are your favorites? 

5. In case you missed it, I shared my recipe for strawberry spinach salad (you should try it!) and a review of the July Love With Food box! Be sure to check those out!
 Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. I was JUST thinking this week that I needed a defuzzer!! Gonna have to pull the trigger on that one!

  2. Ooh, a defuzzer! That's one of those things that I always think would be a good idea to have, and then I don't actually buy it. Good to know this one has a ringing endorsement! I don't listen to podcasts, but the "StuffYou Missed in History Class" one sounds intriguing! I love random historical tidbits--in fact, I was just talking about random presidential trivia with a friend, haha! Like that Grover Cleveland is the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms! If that kind of random stuff is in that podcast, then I'm in! :) Have a great weekend!

  3. You should! I was actually surprised at how well it worked. It even has adjustments for the fabric type and how close you need to be to the fabric. I've already used it on a bunch of stuff, so it's already been worth the money to me!

  4. You should definitely get one. It definitely comes in handy!
    It is pretty interesting. I haven't listened to too many of the podcasts yet, but the ones I have heard are pretty neat. I love random facts and stuff too!
    I didn't know that about Grover Cleveland! That's interesting!

  5. That fabric defuzzer sounds so neat! I'm going to have to get one! I am an experimenter when it comes to cooking/baking, so I have messed up recipes countless times. It still looks good though!


  6. You should get one! I was surprised at how inexpensive they were. The cake did still taste pretty good! Just not quite how I had hoped. At least now I have an excuse to make another cake!
