I'm busy preparing for a baby shower I'm hosting on Sunday. So excited to visit my home town and celebrate the upcoming arrival of my new nephew. You better believe I'll be sharing some of the details next week on the blog, but until then here's my five for this week.
1. Big Blue Bath Bomb by LUSH
A friend of mine has been busy taking care of her mom lately so I dropped one of these off for her this week. The description caught my attention: "Clear your mind with a relaxing seaweed soak. Sail away - For days when you need a relaxing escape from the world. Good for your skin: Filled with the finest, nutritious ingredients from the sea. Sea what? When the seaweed soaks in the hot water, it becomes skin softening and soothing." Sounds like just what she needs! Do you know anyone that could use one of these?

St. Louis's Downtown Restaurant Week is next week - August 3-9. Great opportunity to try some new dining places! We tried two places last year and are hoping to try a couple more next week. The deal is you get 3 courses for $25. This year is the 11th year and 24 destinations are participating. Last year's event attracted over 15,000 diners, so make reservations early to secure your table for this fabulous food experience.
3. National Girlfriends Day
Get ready to reach out to your gal pals because tomorrow is National Girlfriends Day. Let's face it, there's just a special bond between women who are true friends. I'm blessed to have several very special friends and I can't even imagine what my life would look like without them. Love you guys and happy girlfriends day! Let's get together sometime soon.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it -- see Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation. It's opening this weekend and the reviews I've seen have been pretty good. Watch Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) pull out all the stops to save the world. This movie will be competing at the box office with Vacation, which also opens this weekend. Which one do you think will gross the most millions?
