Five on Friday - December 15, 2017

Hey there!  Welcome to Five on Friday.  Are you as glad it's Friday as I am?!?  We have big plans for the weekend, so before I turn my attention to that let me share my five for today ~

1.  Free Shipping Day
Still have tons of online shopping to do but hate those shipping charges?  Well, today just might be your lucky day!!  It's free shipping day!  Tons of stores like JCPenney, Target, Macy's, Old Navy, the list going on and on, are offering to ship your order free today.  For a complete list of companies celebrating Free Shipping Day, chick HERE.   Happy shopping!

Free Shipping Day - Changes Annually

2.  Exploding Kittens
Looking for a new game to play over the holidays?  This one is getting some pretty crazy good reviews.  Here's the description from Amazon, "In this highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette, players draw cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten, at which point they explode, they are dead, and they are out of the game -- unless that player has a Defuse card, which can defuse the Kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches. All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the Exploding Kittens."  Click HERE to get yours.

3.  Mini Portable Cool Mist Humidifier
Okay - this one is so cool that it gets two pictures.  Now that the temperature has dropped, have you noticed how dry the air is?  This little baby will take care of that problem!  You can use it at home, in the office or in your car.  Yes - your car!  It is the perfect size to take with you.  It also has a 7 color changing nightlight, but can be set to stay on one single color if that's your thing.  How perfect would this be in someone's stocking?!?  Click HERE to purchase.

4.  2018 You are a Bad Ass Calendar
Looking for some daily inspiration in 2018?  This funny calendar may be just want you need.  It dispenses feisty inspiration and advice to cultivate awesomeness and encourages you to embrace what you love about yourself, change what you don't love, and create the kind of life that celebrates your greatness.  It's HERE if you want one.

5.  Eat your fruit.....

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.  I'm loading up my family in a rented 15-passenger van tomorrow night and we are heading to a few Christmas light displays in the St. Louis area.  I'm so darn excited!  We are trying a new place - Magic of Lights at Gateway Motorsports Park - and also some tried and true places - Way of Lights at Our Lady of the Snows and Anheuser-Busch Brewery Lights.  Wish me luck.  Then on Sunday we're hosting a little get together before a Tribute to the Trans Siberian Orchestra concert at our church.  So much fun packed into the next couple days!!  Stop back by on Monday and see how it went.

  1. We just got the kitten game, and it's lots of fun! Thanks for the free shipping tip. Have a great weekend!

  2. I just heard about free shipping day on the radio this morning, what a great thing that retailers are doing! We have Exploding Kittens and love it! It's a fun game! Have fun doing the lights! I am hoping to track down some more lights this weekend too.

  3. Your weekend sounds like so much fun with seeing all the lights! I've been seeing that game, but had no idea what it was about. It actually sounds pretty entertaining. Can't wait to hear about your weekend!

  4. Omg, I love that you all are renting a van to go check out lights with the whole family. That's so fun!
    Free shipping day is awesome - granted, I don't think I have much to buy still (at least from sites that offer the free shipping).


  5. My boys LOVE Exploding Kittens; like fall on the floor laughing while playing! I had no idea it was free shipping day... that could be dangerous and fun. Sounds like you have a wonderful weekend planned.

  6. I don't like kittens so maybe exploding them would be fun, haha!

    I went to media ight for the gateway lights show. It was so so, they had a lot to still set up so I hope its more enjoyable for you.

  7. Ahh!! I would love that little humidifier. I had no idea there was a free shipping day! Wow.

  8. Curved yellow fruit?!? Wtf? Lolol!
    That portable most humidifier is pretty handy dandy! Oooh I need one of those bad ass desk desk calendar, I must go look now as I’m in the mall. Thanks penny!
    Hope you’re well and if I don’t stop by before, Merry Christmas my friend. xox
