Five on Friday - March 22, 2019

Happy Friday!  And happy Spring!  Boy, just the thought of Spring makes me do a little happy dance inside.  I've got a few items in my five for today that makes me do a little happy dance too.  Here they are ~

1.  Peeps
With Easter fast approaching, you may have noticed the aisles of candy for your baskets starting to fill up.  Have you noticed all the crazy flavors Peeps are coming in these days?  Here's the unique ones I'm talking about:  Red Velvet, Blueberry Delight, Fruit Punch, Cotton Candy (yes please), Sour Watermelon, Party Cake and Pancakes and Syrup just to name a few.  You can actually get variety packs straight from Amazon.  Which one sounds interesting to you?

2.  Gloria Bell
I know some of you might be excited the movie Us is opening this weekend, but that flick is far too scary for me!  I'm adding Gloria Bell to my list of movies to see.  It stars Julianne Moore and I just love her.  Here's the synopsis from Rotten Tomato ~
Gloria (Julianne Moore) is a free-spirited divorcée who spends her days at a straight-laced office job and her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity and family.

Enjoy this first weekend of spring!  I've been away from home on business since Monday morning and we've had very long work days.  The thought of laying on the couch and watching college basketball has me just a wee bit excited.  See you next week!

Five on Friday - March 15, 2019

It's Friday!  Man, it came a bit quick for me this week.  It's not very often you would hear me say this, but I could really use another work day this week.  Ever have one of those weeks?  Regardless, I still have five for you today and here they are ~

1.  St. Patrick's Day
Don't forget to wear your green on Sunday - it's St. Patrick's Day!  Did you know that St. Patrick's Day is also known as the Feast of St. Patrick?  The wearing of the green dates back to a story written about St. Patrick in 1726.  Where does the shamrock fit into the picture?  Well, apparently St. Patrick was known to use the shamrock in his stories of the Holy Trinity and to have worn green clothing.  If you miss it, I did a post on our St. Patrick's Day decorations (HERE).

ST. PATRICK’S DAY – March 17

2.  The Aftermath
Here's another movie going on our list of ones we want to see - The Aftermath.  Fandango offers this  synopsis:
In 1946 Rachael Morgan arrives in the ruins of Hamburg to be reunited with her husband, Lewis, who is a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. As they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover that Lewis has made an unexpected decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.
It's not getting great reviews, but I still think we'll give it a watch.  I'm a fan of Alexander Skarsgard so if nothing else I'll just look at him for a couple hours. 


3.  The Newsworthy
My blog friend Shelly over at The Queen In Between turned me on to The Newsworthy podcast and I'm loving it!  I don't always listen to a lot of news and this 10 minute podcast is a great way to keep up to date with what's going on out there.  It promotes itself as fast, fair and fun - and it's free.  I've been listening to it while I get ready in the morning and it's the best!  Thanks for the recommendation Shelly!

I ran across this deal on Amazon - 8 pairs of tassel earrings for only $11.98.  Seems a little too good to be true!  I think this will be a nice addition to my spring wardrobe and it won't break the bank.  They would also be great to break up the set and give as little gifts or pop in goody bags.  Click HERE to check them out.

Have a great weekend everyone!  We don't have a lot planned.  I'm going to have to work a bit tomorrow, but hopefully we can sneak in some fun too.  Hope to see you back next week!

Bachelor Recap on Thinking Out Loud Thursday - March 14, 2019

Welcome to Thinking Out Loud Thursday.  So glad you popped in!  If you're a blogger, please link up your latest post and share what you are thinking about today.

Tuesday night wrapped up "the most dramatic season ever" of the Bachelor and I'm still in disbelieve that I invested approximately 24 hours of viewing time over 10 weeks to watch Colton's quest to find love.  Holy cow!  I spent many of those hours shaking my head at the girl's reactions and conversations.  It's like a train wreck - I just couldn't look away and kept coming back week and week for more.  Were you perched on your couch watching it too?  Please don't tell me I was the only one hanging on week after week.



Spoiler alert - The 27 year-old Colton did find the love of his life in Cassie, who is a 23 year-old speech pathologist from Huntington Beach, California.  But before he got to the end, he had to send 29 girls packing.  All in right around 6 weeks of filming!



Were you as sick as I was with Chris Harrison talking about Colton being a virgin?  Jeez, give that a rest!  And if you were like me and thought that former bachelor Sean Lowe was also a virgin, let me clear that up for you.  Sean had had sex with girls but decided at age 24 that he was going to abstain for religious reasons from having sexual relationships until he found his forever partner.  Today he is still married to his final rose recipient Catherine Giudici.   Have you seen pictures of their adorable two little boys?  So precious!


You might have noticed that Colton didn't put a big Neil Lane ring on Cassie's finger.  Neil Lane donates the ring in exchange for the promotion he gets from the show.  It's also a fact that the couple has to stay together for 2 years after the final episode if they want to keep the ring.

If you're wondering what Colton has been up to since filming The Bachelor, he has a new song out that he sang with O-Town.  Who knew he could sing?!?  It's called Hello World and is a fundraiser for his Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation.  The foundation assists cystic fibrosis patients.  I'm still very unclear on what the guy does to pay the bills.

If you're glued to the TV on Mondays watching the Bachelor franchise shows, we have a little reprieve until May 13 when the premiere of The Bachelorette debuts.  Hannah B (do you think they'll drop the "B" since she's the only girl in the mansion now?) will put her heart on the line and search for true love in Season 15.  Hannah, Miss Alabama 2018, is a 24 year-old interior decorator.  Wonder if she'll do a little decorating in the mansion between handing out the roses??

Now it's your turn.  What's on your mind today?  Link up and share!
