Five on Friday - November 4, 2016

Happy Friday guys!  Today is a very special day around our house ~ it's Eric's birthday!  Happy birthday to my dear, sweet husband!  We have a fun few days planned to celebrate, but more on that in another post.  For now, let's take a look at my five for today.

1.  Ash Wood Cheese Serving Set
Pampered Chef recently came out with their winter items and the ash wood cheese serving set is one of my favorite new items.  This would make an excellent board to have cheese (and other appetizers) on at our Thanksgiving day feast.  I'm also thinking it could make an excellent Christmas present for that hostess-with-the-mostest on your list.  Visit my Pampered Chef website to order.  I would truly appreciate your business!

2.  The Crown on Netflix
The day has finally arrived -- The Crown is available on Netflix!!  "This drama follows the political rivalries and romance of Queen Elizabeth II's reign and the events that shaped the second half of the 20th century".  Rumor has it we get a view of Queen Elizabeth's lavish wedding just 12 minutes into the opening episode.  Be still my heart!!  Sounds like a show I'll love and I can't wait to start watching.  Could be my next binge watch.  Is it on your watch list?

3.  Bialetti 7265 Trends Collection 5 Quart Pasta Pot
Oprah's favorites things Christmas list is out and this snazzy pot made the list.  Check it out -- it has an oval shape so your noodles will fit in the pot without breakage.  The lid twists and locks in place for easy straining.  The handles don't heat up so it's easy to lift.  What more could you want in a pasta pot?!?  And the price is only $29.99!  Holy cow ~ this thing is amazing!  Want one?  Click HERE to check it out.  Act fast because I doubt these babies are going to last long.

4.  Change Your Clocks
So it's that time of year when we fall back.  November 5th is the day to wind back the hands on our clocks.  Ready for an extra hour this weekend?  What are you going to do with your extra hour?

5.  Ever have one of these....

Have a fabulous weekend!  I'm taking off next week and Eric and I are going on a little road trip.  Should be a fun few days and hopefully the fall foliage will still be beautiful.  I'll be back on Monday with all the weekend happenings!

  1. First of all, that pasta pot? Genius!

    Second, I'm so excited to get an extra hour of sleep! And I'm even more excited that my commute to work will have sunshine again!

  2. So much good stuff! I have got to check out The Crown. I'm always looking for my next elliptical show. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. That pasta pot really is genius!
    We already turned back our clocks here in Germany last weekend and it was so wonderful to have that extra hour!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I saw the Crown pop up but I didn't know much about it! And that pasta pot is such a great idea!

  5. Woohoo for an extra hour of sleep and having it be dark earlier so I can have a good excuse to be inside and cozy with my family. :) Also The Crown sounds like a really good. I love that Amazon has Oprah's favorite things. I have been eyeballing a couple of her items. Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Oh, I do like seeing Oprah's favorite things every year. I don't know a lot about the show The Crown but it has Matt Smith, so I might have to check it out. He's a great actor. Happy Birthday to your husband - hope you both have a great weekend.


  7. Happy birthday to Eric! I have to work the extra hour of Daylight Savings Time.

  8. Hope it's a great weekend trip and the weather is great. I so love Oprah's favorite things and that there is such a great price range of items.

  9. Thank you for reminding me about the crown! I saw the trailer on netflix awhile back and forgot all about it. My mom and I binge watched downtown abbey last winter and were obsessed, then really sad when it ended. I think this may be our next binge.

  10. What a nice cheese set, one could even say handsome. It's be great for male or female. I just ordered a few custom ones from Shutterfly myself.

    I hope you're up to some fun stuff this weekend. I just had a blast ofN afternoon at an agricultural fair.

    Take care Penny!

  11. This is an incredibly beautiful space to have a wedding reception. The space is a long hall with a few side rooms (perfect for dancing and hor d'oeuvres). The windows at the end of the NYC wedding venues hall led to magnificently gorgeous panoramic views of the city.
