Five on Friday - May 13, 2016

Happy Friday the Thirteenth!  I have to be honest ~ I love Friday the Thirteenths.  They've been kind of lucky for me in the past so I'm always a little excited on the inside when I see one approaching on the calendar.  So here's hoping today will be lucky for you and for me!

Special shout out to our son, Ian.  Last night was his hooding ceremony for law school.  All his hard work has payed off and we couldn't be more proud of him!

Let's take a look at this week's five:

1.  Baby Girls Flower Headbands
We were blessed with a baby niece in February and I couldn't wait to fill her closet with dresses and bows.  I found these adorable flower headbands on Amazon and the price was so fantastic I wondered if that would be as cute in real life as they were on screen.  They were!  A pack of 10 different colors is only $3.99 (plus $3.69 for shipping).  How can you beat that?!?  Want some of your own?  Click HERE to check them out.

2.  New Jell-O Pudding Flavors
Look what Jell-O did -- they put two new flavors of pudding snacks on the shelves.  S'more and Strawberry Sundae.  These babies are made with real milk and have no artificial sweeteners.  I'm thinking these would be a great snack to have on hand when the kids come in from playing outside or to throw in the lunchbox.  Have you tried them?  They are in the refrigerated section of the store if you're on the hunt for them.

3.  Adjustable Tiered Tower
Check out this adorable tiered tower that's in the outlet section of Pampered Chef.  It's on sale for $13.35!  I'm so excited to add a couple of these to my dish collection.  These are great to pull out when you're entertaining.  Here's the description straight from Pampered Chef, "Mix and match the three white ceramic plates and columns four different ways. The columns feature a satin nickel finish and include a decorative cardholder to let guests know what you're serving. The tower fully disassembles for compact storage. Plates, 7", 9" and 10½" diameters; tower, 12½" fully assembled. Plates are dishwasher-safe."  Want one?  Click HERE to order.  While you're there, be sure to check out the other items in the clearance section!  Oh, and they are only there while supplies last don't delay getting yours.

4.  Well-Read Woman - A Reader's Journal
Do you have a reader in you life?  Are you a reader? You might be wanting a reader's journal.  Here's the description from Amazon:  "Well-read women keep their books close to their heart. Here they can record what they've read, reflect on their favorite characters and notable quotations, and list books to devour next. With a satin ribbon bookmark and gorgeous watercolor portraits of literature's most beloved female characters—plus a comprehensive list of prize-winning fiction to inspire new selections—this go-to reading companion is as elegant as it is practical."  This would make a great gift for a couple people I know.

Have a fantastic weekend!  We will be celebrating Ian's graduation with a family party tomorrow.  I've got a meeting with the wedding venue for the wedding I'm helping with in a few weeks and I'm taking my parents to visit a creamery.  Lots of fun stuff!  Hope you get in some fun stuff too!  See you next week!
