Five on Friday - October 24, 2014

Hello everyone! Shout out for the weekend -- I'm so ready!  In case you didn't hear, today is quite the national holiday - National Bologna Day.  My grandpa Bud LOVED bologna.  I have many fond memories of sitting at his kitchen table for lunch and dining on the best fried bologna sandwiches made by my grandma.  Thinking of you today, Grandpa.

Now on to this week's Five on Friday.

1.  Giving Away Some Cash
I'm participating in a cash giveaway with some great bloggers -- please enter to win!

2.  Walmart Savings Catcher App
Have you guys been seeing stuff on this Walmart Savings Catcher App?  I downloaded it this week, but haven't officially used it yet.  The story goes you download the app, scan your receipt and if the price is lower at any other store in your area, the difference is placed on an ecard for you to use at Walmart.  This ecard can be printed or you can take your phone in.  Sounds pretty nifty.  I'm anxious to give it a try.  With holiday shopping approaching, it could save some time going to difference stores to get the lowest price.

3.  Roses by Leila Meacham
This is a great book!  I started reading it last weekend and am dying to finish.  Here's the Amazon synopsis:  Spanning the 20th century, the story of Roses takes place in a small East Texas town against the backdrop of the powerful timber and cotton industries, industries controlled by the scions of the town's founding families. Cotton tycoon Mary Toliver and timber magnate Percy Warwick should have married but unwisely did not, and now must deal with the deceit, secrets, and tragedies of their choice and the loss of what might have been--not just for themselves but for their children, and children's children. With expert, unabashed, big-canvas storytelling, Roses covers a hundred years, three generations of Texans and the explosive combination of passion for work and longing for love.

4.  How to Get Away with Murder
Anyone else hooked on this show?  We hadn't been watching or taping it, but we'd heard the buzz about how good it was so decided to watch an episode -- then another, and another, and another.  Before I knew it I had binge-watched to the point where we are current.  OH. MY. GOODNESS -- love this show!

5.  Good Advice..

I'm hoping to catch some "fallness" this weekend by being outside with the beautiful colors.  We also need to get ready for the trick-or-treaters that will be showing up at our door next Friday.  Have a wonderful weekend and I hope to see you back here next week.
