Five on Friday - June 10, 2016

Happy Friday friends!  Are you ready for a weekend?!?  This chick seriously is.  I'm motivated to get some things done this weekend so before that feeling leaves me, I want to hop into things.  Before I get going on my to do list, here's my five for this week.

1.  Plantable Cards
I am loving these plantable cards!  This is a set of 5 cards and each are generously embedded with a mix of wildflower seeds that will grow just about anywhere.  How cool would one of these be to get in your mailbox!  It's great to get a piece of snail mail, but this is a bonus to be able to plant the card after reading it and watching someone's kind words grow into beautiful flowers.  Buy yours HERE.

2.  Mad Men Auction
Were you a Mad Men fan?  Check this out -- there is an auction going on RIGHT NOW where you can bid on items like Don Draper's tool box, Pete Campbell's blue suit and Roger Sterling's sock garters - just to name a few.  There are literally hundred of items!  The lots begins closing June 13 through June 15.  Click HERE to check out all the goodies.  Let me know if you win one!

3.  National Ice Tea Day
Sip a nice, tall glass of ice tea day in celebration of National Ice Tea Day!  Guess what some participating Starbucks are doing today to celebrate ~ When you buy one iced tea on June 10, you'll get one free.  What a deal!  Starbucks has some delicious Teavana teas so stop by and grab a couple.  Not sure what to order ~ try their Mango Black Tea Lemonade.  It's the ideal balance of tart and sweet.  Snapple is also giving away a free bottle of tea.  Click HERE to get your printable coupon.

4.  Mango Coconut Ice Cream
One of the great things about my husband working at a grocery store is when a new product hits the shelves, he likes to bring it home to try.  This week Blue Bunny's new seasonal Mango Coconut Ice Cream showed up at our house.  It is coconut ice cream with a mango sorbet swirl.  YUMMO!  Highly recommend you giving it a try.

5.  I love my friends....

Have a great weekend!  I'm joining my friends tomorrow and heading to Hidden Lake Winery to celebrate my friend Tracy's birthday.  Should be a great time!  I'm also going to try my very best to get a meal plan in order for next week.  Lately that is something I haven't been doing and it makes my week so much smoothly when I do.  I'll let you know how that goes.  :)

  1. I love Mad Men, but I am pretty sure those things will end up way out of my budget. And Mango Coconut ice cream sounds delicious! Have a great weekend!

  2. Plantable cards are such a fun idea! :)

  3. Oh, so fun! I love iced tea! And that coconut mango ice cream looks amazing!


  4. That coconut mango ice cream sounds perfect for the summer! I'm going to have to put it on my shopping list next week!

  5. I got a card kind of like that at a baby shower once! It was really neat. I actually did plant it. They were very dainty wild flowers but they didn't last very long!

  6. Those plantable cards are darling and smart. I've seen similar things but given as bonboniere gifts at weddings, with a little satchel full of seeds. I love that, it's so fun and looking out for the environment.

    That MM auction sounds fun, I bet some of the items have gone for crazy prices.

    Enjoy your time at the winery with your girlfriends Penny!
