Hope you enjoy my five today!
1. Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
When I was out of town coordinating a conference a little bit ago, we had Josh Cabernet Sauvignon wine served at dinner. Loved it! Since then, I've seen it pop up a couple different places so I guess word is getting around that it's pretty darn good. I like my wine smooth and this one was like silk sliding down my throat. Winemaker’s Notes: "Rich, aromatic dark fruits and baking spices delight the nose, yielding fresh plum and blackberry fruit, violet, dried fig, vanilla bean, and Chinese Five-Spice. The wine is layered with smoky and sappy maple wood, roasted almonds, and hazelnuts and finishes with fine, firm tannins." Now doesn't that sound yummy! I just might be stopping by tonight to pick up a bottle. It's been a long week -- I deserve it!
2. Lemon Cookies
Last Friday when I came home from girls night out, Eric was baking up a batch of these refrigerated lemon cookies. Oh.My.Goodness! They are DELICIOUS!

Apparently they are only out for a limited time, but I have every intention of writing a letter to Pillsbury and
3. Kiwi Express Shine
Have you ever looked down at your shoes and thought, EEKS - what happened to the toes of my shoes! I do that quite a bit in the winter when I look at my boots. Eric found this magic wand. Just swipe it over your shoes and they look like brand new. Quickly. So on my way out of door I do a little swipe swipe and just like that, my boots don't look like I just walked through a battlefield.
Check this out -- just in time for St. Patrick's Day we have this gold mist. I'm thinking of so many possibilities for this stuff. You can spray it on chocolate, icing, ice cream - anything really.
Check out these Oreos that look like gold coins. Wouldn't they be fun for St. Patrick's Day?!?
5. Let's Get Lucky.....
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I'm headed to a wine tasting tonight. Tomorrow Eric and I are grading papers for a spelling bee and then Sunday we're taking Ian and Kayla out to dinner to celebrate Ian's birthday. Hope you stop back by on Monday to hear the details.
