Five on Friday - March 17, 2017

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  We are headed to Kansas City to celebrate with our friends.  Do you have big plans?  Eric and I both love corned beef and cabbage so we enjoyed it for dinner one night this week.  Here's some other things we've enjoyed this week and are looking forward to enjoying in the week to come~

1.  Irish Slang
Well horse!  If you are out and about today, I thought you might need to know some of Irish slang.  Good luck sounding a little Irish today. Erin go bragh!


2.  Beauty and the Beast
Excited to see this one in the theaters!  Ian was a baby when the animated version was released in 1991 and when he was little we watched it about 128742874 times.  This version seems a bit more grown up.  Emma Watson was on the Ellen show and she's just darling.  Seeing her made me even more excited to catch this version in the theaters.  Here's a bit of trivia for you ~  Ryan Gosling was offered the role of the Beast, but turned it down to appear in La La Land (2016) instead. Emma Watson was offered the lead role in that film, but turned down that film to star in this one.  Filming was completed by August 27, 2015, more than 18 months before the film's release.

3.  Ritz Bacon Flavored Crackers
Eric brought some of these home and I think they will become a staple in our pantry.  So good!  I have no idea how long these have been on the market, but I'm sure glad we tried them.  I'm thinking of all the recipes I have that calls for Ritz crackers and which ones will be even better now if I use the bacon flavored version.  Oh the possibilities!!

4.  Spring is Coming!
Even though many of us have had to endure freezing temperatures and snow this week - hold on.  Spring officially begins on Monday, March 20!  Bring on the warm weather!  Anyone else out there looking forward to spring and everything it has to offer?!?

5.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Have a wonderful weekend and if you are going to be drinking green beer today, please be careful.  I'll see you next week!

    I'm SO excited to see Beauty and the Beast. I knew Emma was originally going to d LaLa Land, but I didn't know Ryan Gosling got offered the part of the Beast. I'm glad it's two British actors though.
