Five on Friday - October 14, 2016

Woo Hoo -- it's the weekend my friends!!  It's hard for me to hide my excitement.  It's been a lllloooonnnngggg week and I am longing for a little bit of a break.  

Want to see my five for today?  Well, here they are~

1.  Bangle from Frou Frou & Frill
Last Saturday morning I had the luxury of laying in bed for a while and reading some blogs.  I ran across a blog that mentioned these bangles from Frou Frou and Frill.  It was love at first site.  Just look how adorable they are!  They have a tons of cool things, including more bracelets ~ but they also have a whole line of game day bangles.  How fun would it be to give a friend a bangle in the colors of her favorite team!?!  I personally am not necessarily a Texas A&M fan, but I do love, love, love this bracelet.

2. Chipotle Deal
Okay ~ I'm not usually one to share deals with you, but this one just touched my heart (well, my stomach really).  Chipotle is in the midst of this super cool deal.  Pop over HERE, play a little game and then Chipotle will text you a buy one, get one free entree item message.  You don't even have to win the game -- just play!  Limit one offer per person and per mobile number while supplies last.  Gotta love free Chipotle!  Grab all the cell phones in your house, play and win.

3.  This Is Us
I'm so excited about this new show - This Is Us.  We hopped by bandwagon of This Is Us show lovers and haven't looked back.  Seriously, you really need to give this show a try if you haven't.  This Is Us airs on NBC Tuesdays at 9/8 central.  The season is three shows in and with each episode there are twists and turns that just keep you hooked.  This dramedy stars Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown.  Are you watching?  What do you think of it?

4.  National Dessert Day
Guess what today is!?!  It's National Dessert Day!  Time to celebrate!  What's your favorite dessert?  I honestly don't know what my favorite is.  Check out my "Recipes" tab at the top of this page for some of the desserts I've made and shared with you.  Guess I need to try more to be able to pick one.

5.  Notice to my friends...

If you can't handle me at my worst:

Enjoy the weekend!  I'm helping with a wedding next weekend so this weekend is packed with all kinds of crafting.  I also have some decorations to make for a baby shower that's happening next Friday.  So many fun things to do!  Hope your weekend is full of things that are fun for you.
