Five on Friday - September 19, 2014

Here we are -- another Friday is upon us.  Don't freak out, but we only have 13 more Fridays until Christmas!  But for now, let's enjoy Fall and this week's Five on Friday.

1.  Nestle Girl Scout Milk Flavors
Has anyone tried the Girl Scouts flavored Nestle milks?  Apparently they have been on the shelves since June and are expected to run through the end of September.  They are sold in single-serving bottles and can be found in the refrigerated beverage section at many convenience and grocery stores.
I heard a review from an eight-year-old on the caramel coconut flavor and he said the milk tastes like his shampoo smells.  Maybe I'll look for the thin mint one.

2.  Barbra Streisand Partners
Can not wait to get my hands on this baby!!  The new album (do we still call them that?!?) is out this week and definitely on my list of things to buy.  Barbra teams up with a huge cast of characters like Elvis Presley (maybe he is still alive), Michael Buble, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Lionel Richie, Andrea Bocelli and others.  Did you see her on Jimmy Fallon Monday night?  Quite the star.


3.  My Prairie Cookbook
Speaking of stars - the star of Little House on the Prairie, Melissa Gilbert, released a cookbook this week.  She's 50 now and living in a 1890's restored historic home in Howell, Michigan.  Her new cookbook is called My Prairie Cookbook:  Memories and Frontier Food from My Little House to Yours. Who knew she could cook!


4.  TOMS at Target
Have you heard -- The Toms are coming!  The Toms are coming!  That's right, folks -- Toms will be available at Target starting November 16.  Just in time for Christmas shopping.  Joseph Altuzarra's line for Target will feature shoes, hats, gloves, hoodies, stationery, mugs, candles and jewelry for women, men and children.  Each item is retailing for less than $50.  Target will be staying with the One for One giving model by donating a blanket, meal or shoes to a North America-based charity such as American Red Cross Disaster Relief, Canadian Red Cross Disaster Relief, Feeding America and Food Banks Canada.  Target officials are projecting they could provide more than 11 million meals, blankets and shoes to those in need.  


5.  Action Item for Today


Have a great weekend everyone!  I've got some things in the works for next week's blog that I'll be pulling together this weekend.  Stop back by and check them out.
