Before I head off into the crowds I want to share my five with you for today ~
1. National Chocolate Covered Anything Day
You got it -- today to National Chocolate Covered Anything Day! I mean really, isn't everything better with a bit of chocolate on it?!? Last year I shared my Chocolate Covered Peanuts recipe with you. It's HERE if you want to check it out. I've been making those little clusters since my sorority sister, Becky, introduced me to them in college. Hope you enjoy something wonderful covered in chocolate today!
2. Hillshire Farms Wine Infused Salame
Have you seen this at the store? Wine-infused salame! My friend, Jodie, had this snack at her movie theater and thankfully shared it's existence with us. Yum! I checked it out and it's available at Walmart and Target. What a great little snack to have on hand.
3. Collateral Beauty
Today's the day -- Collateral Beauty opens. Here's the synopsis from Rotten Tomatoes, "When a successful New York advertising executive suffers a great tragedy he retreats from life. While his concerned friends try desperately to reconnect with him, he seeks answers from the universe by writing letters to Love, Time and Death. But it's not until his notes bring unexpected personal responses that he begins to understand how these constants interlock in a life fully lived, and how even the deepest loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty." It seems like a very thought provoking film. Don't know if I'll get a chance to see it over the weekend, but it's definitely on my list for Christmas break!
You've seen me blog about this before, but just in case you are still looking for that special gift for the impossible person (lady or man), you might want to consider Birchbox. This little box of surprises arrives once a month with five fun samples inside. I can attest that each month when I open my mailbox and this box is looking out at me, I let out a little squeal of excitement. I've purchased a subscription for Eric, my husband, and he loves it too. A three-month subscription is $30. The recipient will get a notification and can fill out a survey so the samples will fit their likes and not include their dislikes. Check it out HERE.
5. This is me this weekend....
Here's hoping you have a fantastic weekend! We're going to see Eric's mom, doing dinner with our son and daughter-in-law and having a group of friends over before going to a Trans-Siberian tribute concert. It makes me excited to start the weekend! Oh, and wrapping, wrapping, wrapping. See you back next week!
