Five on Friday - September 25, 2015

Can you believe this is the last Friday in September?!?  I swear it was August yesterday.  This month has truly gone by in a blur.  I have to admit, I'm ready for Fall.  I love the colors and weather we've been having here in St. Louis.  Just a little cooler and I can break out my scarves and boots!

Speaking of Fall, here's my first Five on Friday for this autumn season.

1. The Intern
This one has been on my radar since the first time I saw the preview.  I love Ann Hathaway and Robert De Niro!  Seeing them together on the big screen should be wonderful.  Here's what they are saying the movie's all about:  "70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker has discovered that retirement isn't all it's cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin."

2.  Premiere Week
My DVR is running on overdrive as I type!  This is premiere week for many of the shows I watch and I'm so excited to reacquaint myself to my friends Olivia, Meredith and Penny.  I know, I tape a lot of shows.  But I'm not even going to feel guilty about that.  Sometimes it just feels great to escape into pretend land and watch the doctors work their miracles in the ER, or escape from whole CIA coming after you, or realize you have never had a roommate as anal as Sheldon.  You know what I mean?  BTW, have you heard that Shonda Rhimes is supposedly developing a new drama that's about a team of military doctors working in Baghdad during the Iraq War?  I just hope it's not on Thursday nights because I think I've reached my limit on the number of shows I can record at one time.

3.  Poo-Pourri
Okay, this one is just intriguing to me.  The concept is you spritz a little in the toilet bowl before you go and there will be no smell.  Think about it -- if you had this in your purse at an office party, you could use a little and not have to worry about opening the door and your boss standing there waiting to go in behind you.  Just a thought.  One 2-ounce bottle is good for up to 100 uses.  I don't know about you, but for me that would last a really long time.

4. S'mores Candy Corn
Brach's what are you doing to me?!?  I'm picking some of this up this weekend for sure.  The taste of a s'more in a little bite of candy corn - YUM!!  Has anyone tried it?  Please tell me it's great!

s'mores, candy corn

5.  I think I've found my next business....

Enjoy this last weekend in September!  I'm heading out with some friends tomorrow to go to the
Strange Folk Art Festival.  We try to go every year and every year I've found something cool.  Can't wait to see what's out there this year.  Then on Saturday evening I'm meeting up with a friend from college that I haven't seen in 30 years a very long time.  So excited to see her I'm giddy about it!  Sunday we have a little birthday party to attend.  This is shaping up to be one fantastic weekend!  Stop back by on Monday to read all about it.

  1. I talked about The Intern as one of my favorites this week too! I totally agree, my dvr is working overtime this week!

  2. I have not seen the s'mores candy corn - this could be dangerous. Happy Weekend!

  3. My mom has that Spray stuff and it does indeed work. :-)

    I have to completely agree with you. It really does feel like August was yesterday. Man oh man.
    Don't you just love Shonda Rhimes? She's a great writer. I've got to double check and make sure I taped How to Get Away with Murder and Greys last night.

    Thanks for linking up lady, always happy to have you.

    Enjoy your day and weekend! Xo

  4. I cannot wait to see The Intern! I think it looks like it will be a great movie!!

  5. LOL at the potpourri that's very interesting. The Intern looks good too! Thanks for sharing.

  6. I have had the same bottle of Poo Pourri forever! It seriously lasts like eons! Get some you will love it! If only you can train others to use it lol :)

  7. We actually have that poo pouri!!! It's not bad at all and lasts forever! I'm loving fall tv being back!

  8. No. This can't be the last Friday in September. What happened to it!? I'm excited for The Intern. It looks so good. I don't know what to make of poo-purri. It's intriguing, but it weirds me out. And my husband cracked up at the margarita truck. He wants one in our neighborhood.

  9. I really want to see the Intern. Need to convince my husband that it's a good idea. I just started watching How To Get Away With Murder and had to resist the urge of watching the latest episode last night.

  10. S'MORES CANDY CORN!?!?!?!?!? I need to find that STAT! Thanks for linking up lady!

  11. The Smores candy corn is so good! Get yourself some of that ASAP :) And I want a margarita truck! Hahaha

  12. Just a couple mom has been talking about wanting to go see The Intern for ages, well ages for her being about 2.5 weeks or so, lol. Although the last movie she decided she really wanted to see after seeing previews during a movie we were at came & left the theaters without her even remembering she wanted to see it. Haha! My best friend works at a spa & I found it odd that they actually sold Poo-Pourii there she spent a good 5 minutes or so talking about the different scents they carried & which one was her favorite, although I don't remember now as I went there at the beginning of August which does seem like forever ago when it's only been almost 2 months now. I think someone should look into that margarita truck idea, I'd be out buying at least once or twice, hell possibly more times a week ;)
