Five on Friday - October 23, 2015

Oh my goodness, what a week!  I can always tell when I'm out of town for a whole weekend because the following week is a tad crazy.  Well, I'm glad to be putting this crazy week behind me and walking into the weekend!   Being gone last weekend was so worth it though.  I'll have this weekend to get back on track.  Before the weekend starts, let me share my five for this week with you.

1.  Acura TLX
We finally broke down and decided on getting a car.  After very little looking (because car shopping is just not my thing), we decided on a 2015 Acura TLX.  Love, love, love it!!  They are having a ginormous sale on the 2015's right now, so if you're in the market now's the time to buy.  Not only did I fall in love with the car, but also the dealership and sales person.  It was honestly the best customer service we've have had in years ever!  Frank Leta Acura knows how to treat their customers.   I'm not always the easiest person to please and they far exceeded my expectations!  If you stop by, talk to Kyle Greer and tell him Penny sent you.  I don't think you'll be disappointed!


2.  Jumpers for Goalposts
You know from this post my love for Ed Sheeran -- well imagine my excitement when the email saying this came across screen:
Fathom Events and ScreenLive are thrilled to bring the incredible concert documentary, Ed Sheeran: Jumpers for Goalposts, to the big screen nationwide for a special four-day event on October 22, 24, 25, and 26.

Captured live from London, Ed Sheeran: Jumpers for Goalposts gives audiences an exclusive look at the man behind the guitar and will feature red carpet footage from Odeon Leicester Square and a recorded-live-30-minute performance from Ed.

Don't let this opportunity slip away. Get your tickets for this larger-than-life event now! Find a theater near you. 

Yea, I'll be getting my tickets!!

3.  National Bologna Day
Guess what tomorrow is - National Bologna Day!  This may sound gross to some of you, but one of my favorite things is a fried bologna sandwich.  Think I know what we're having for lunch tomorrow.

4.  Happy Birthday St. Louis Arch
We have a great big beautiful monument in St. Louis and she turns 50 this year.  This Saturday, October 24, everyone is invited to celebrate this anniversary all day at Kiener Plaza in downtown St. Louis.  You can enjoy food and drinks vendors, children's activities, and live music throughout the day.  The best part, in my opinion, is the giant fireworks display showcasing the Arch in the evening.  Can't wait to see the display in the sky!!  If you're in the area, come join the fun!  Check out all the anniversary celebrations at GATEWAYARCH.COM/50

5.  This is so me....


Have a fantastic weekend!  I'm going to run down to my home town on Saturday to start planning a baby shower and that means I get to see my nephews.  Yay!!  Can't wait to wrap my arms around those little guys!  Check back on Monday for a total recap.

  1. Hey there Penny. I posted your no bake cookies on Instagram, wasn't sure you received my email because it sent it back with some funky code. Computers! Arrrghhh. Anyways, I promoted it because it fit perfect with my promo for the Cookie Swap. Congrats on the new car...nothing like new wheels to get you where you're going. Enjoy the loving time with your nephews.
