Five on Friday - June 30, 2017

Hello!  So glad today is Friday!  I'm taking Monday as a vacation day so there's a four-day weekend in my immediate future and that makes me pretty excited!  Before I break into my weekend, here's my five for this week ~

1.  After Glow Solar Bottle Lantern Kit
If you read my weekending post, you know my friend Tracy gave us gifts for summer solstice.  One of them was this amazing solar lantern kit.  Guys, it turns any empty bottle into a twinkling lantern that doesn't require batteries!  It's weatherproof so you can hang it outside or inside for thousands of hours of light.  It's down right adorable!  If you need some, click HERE.

2.  Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Shoreline Low Top Sneaker
Have you seen these Chuck Taylor's?!?  They are so cute AND so comfortable!  I picked up a pair
this week and love wearing them with a little cotton dress.  The elastic back gives this iconic sneaker a new twist.  You can pick up a pair HERE.   My pick was the gray, but they come in tons of other shades.

3.  Pizzeti Bagel Chips
We had a picnic at the Missouri Botanical Gardens on Wednesday night and my friend Debbie brought a bag of these Pizzeti Bagel Chips.  OH.MY.GOODNESS - they are fabulous!  Definitely going on my shopping list this week.  I'm a bagel chip lover and these could become my new favorite.  So much flavor in each crispy bite!
4.  Social Media Day
Today is Social Media Day!  Which form of social media is your favorite?  I tend to use Facebook the most, but Pinterest would get a very close second.  Celebrate today by posting something on your favorite social media platform.  Oh, and don't forget to use #SocialMediaDay when posting.

5.  So true....

36 Funny Quotes And Sayings

Have a wonderful weekend!  We don't have huge plans, just a few little ones. I'm looking forward to hanging out around the house and piddling on some projects.  If they turn out blog-worthy, I'll be sharing them.  ;)  Fair St. Louis starts on Sunday, but we're going to wait until Monday to go.  Their fireworks are the best!
