Five on Friday - June 9, 2017

Hey there!  Happy Friday!  I've got five fun things for you today ~

1.  Strawberry Moon
Take a minute to look up to the sky tonight -- you will have a chance to see the full strawberry moon.  This full moon is named "Strawberry Moon" because  of the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries comes each year during the month of June.  Regardless of the name, there's something about that big, round ball in the sky that captures my attention when it's full in the sky.

2.  Philadelphia Bagel Chips & Cream Cheese Dip
Speaking of strawberry, I tried this Philadelphia Bagel Chips and Cream Cheese Dip this week.  Where have they been all my life?!?  I picked up two last week at the grocery store - one strawberry flavored and the other garden vegetable.  They were the perfect thing to grab on the go for breakfast.  The cream cheese was so flavorful that I might have even scraped the section with my knife to get every last bit of it in my mouth.   There are four different flavors in all.  The other two I haven't tried yet are brown sugar and cinnamon and chive and onion.  Have you tried them?

Are you a John Grisham fan?  His newest book came out this week - Camino Island.  Here's how Amazon is describing it, "A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a secure vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, but Princeton has insured it for twenty-five million dollars. Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in the black market of stolen books and manuscripts.
Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous offer of money convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Bruce Cable’s circle of literary friends, ideally getting close enough to him to learn his secrets.
But eventually Mercer learns far too much, and there’s trouble in paradise as only John Grisham can deliver it."  Sounds like another John Grisham winner to me!  Click HERE to check it out.

Without a trip to the beach this Spring, my legs had a shockingly white glow to them.  Jergens to the rescue!  I had gotten a sample in one of my beauty boxes of Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin and decided to give it a try.  Oh my gosh -- now you don't have to wear your sun glasses if you look at my bare legs!  I love the fact that it glides on your skin when it's wet.  I think for me it really helped get it on more evenly to reduce the streaking effect.  If you're looking for a little tan glow, give it a try.

5.  How I feel about exercising.... - i.3.7:

Have a great weekend!  I'm heading to a happy hour tonight in honor of a work friend who's moving up her career ladder and then tomorrow we have girls night out to celebrate my friend Tracy's birthday.  Sunday I'm meeting with a few friends to discuss their baby shower decorating vision.  Fun times ahead!  See you next week!

  2. A strawberry moon?! Oh I hope that we can see it! We are supposed to get lots of rain here. How cool would that be?
    That meme about exercising is hilarious! HAHAH!
