Five on Friday - June 26, 2015

WooHoo -- Friday has arrived and this is one happy chick to see it get here!  I have an action packed weekend ahead and I'm so ready to get it started.  But before I head out, here's my Five on Friday.

1.  Godiva Trufflelata
Do you have a Godiva chocolate store near you?  If so, RUN to it and get yourself one of their trufflelata drinks.  BEST.DRINK.EVER!  My favorite is the salted caramel.  If that flavor doesn't suit your fancy, they come in six other flavors:  mint chocolate chip, chocolate lava cake, mike chocolate, hazelnut crunch, strawberry creme and oreo.  Come on, tell me one of those flavors isn't your favorite.  Every time I'm in the mall with our nearest Godiva chocolate store, you can see me strolling around sipping on this decadent treat.

2.  Priceline Name Your Own Price
Searching for a hotel room for an upcoming trip?  Well, you should consider using Priceline's Name Your Own Price.  I'm hooked on it!  Eric and I were in need of a hotel in Memphis for this coming Sunday night.  I put in my bid and we'll be staying at the Peabody for a fraction of their normal rate.  I've used them quite a bit and have had great success.  Have you used it before?  I'd love to hear your money-saving stories.

3.  Quick Stir Pitcher
Eric and I are trying to drink less soda these days so we're using our Pampered Chef Quick-Stir Pitcher on a daily basis.  Love this thing!  It's perfect for mixing powdered drinks like our Crystal Light teas and lemonade.  Just a few tugs on the plunger and you're ready to enjoy your beverage.  It would also be great if you have little ones around wanting to "help" stir.  Spills and spatters would definitely be minimized.

4.  Sticker Removal Tip
My friend Tammy gave me the best tip this week -- Using a blow dryer, blow hot air on the sticker for a few minutes.  The sticker will pull right off in its' entirety.  No joke!  I tried it on some glasses that I bought and, sure enough, the labels peeled right off without leaving any of that sticky goo.  Why am I just now learning about this handy tip?!?

5.  Thought....
Thinking positive is just as easy as thinking negative! So think positive #recovery #addiction

Do you have plans for the next couple of days?  We are seeing Hairspray tonight at the Muny (keeping my fingers crossed for no rain).  Tomorrow morning I'm headed to Kansas City so Linda and I can go the The Stones concert.  Yes, The Rolling Stones!!!  And as if seeing the Stones wasn't enough, guess who's opening for them.  Ed Sheeran!!  No joke.  Check that off my bucket list.  Then Sunday we're driving to Memphis for a couple's shower.  I told you it was action packed!  Hope you stop back by on Monday to hear all about it.

    We have a Godiva shop at our mall, and I had no idea that they served these. I may have to stop in and try one.
