Five on Friday - February 2, 2018

Happy Groundhog's Day!  Just for the record (and I had to look this up because I can never remember), if a groundhog sees its shadow today, there will be six more weeks of winter.  If it doesn't, we can expect spring to make an appearance sooner rather than later.  Please, please, PLEASE Mr. Groundhog - don't see your shadow today!!

Here's my five for this week.  Enjoy ~

1.  Scratch-Off Valentine Jokes
February is here and Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  These unique Peaceable Kingdom scratch-off cards could definitely bring the fun to any child's Valentine's Day card exchange.  Heck, I'm thinking of some adults who would think they are pretty fun too!  You can order yours HERE.

2.  Still You by JoJo Moyes
Are you ready to see what happens to Louisa Clark when she arrives in New York?  Well, now you  can!  JoJo Moyes' next installment into Louisa's life hit the stands this week and I for one can't wait to read it.  Me Before You and After You were very enjoyable reads and I'm expecting Still You to be the same.  Here's what Amazon said about this book:

Louisa Clark arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she can embrace this new adventure and keep her relationship with Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles. She steps into the world of the superrich, working for Leonard Gopnik and his much younger second wife, Agnes. Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her new job and New York life. 

As she begins to mix in New York high society, Lou meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. Before long, Lou finds herself torn between Fifth Avenue where she works and the treasure-filled vintage clothing store where she actually feels at home. And when matters come to a head, she has to ask herself: Who is Louisa Clark? And how do you reconcile a heart that lives in two places?

Funny, romantic, and poignant, Still Me follows Lou as she navigates how to stay true to herself, while pushing to live boldly in her brave new world.

Today is the day!  Justin Timberlake's new CD - Man of the Woods - is released.  Have you heard any of it yet?  Oh Justin, I just love you!  It's been four years since his last studio album.  He's releasing this one just before his Super Bowl appearance at Sunday's halftime show.  His tour starts on March 13 in Toronto.  Is he coming to your city?  You can get the new CD HERE.

I had some reward dollars from World Market that were burning a hole in my pocket so I picked up these adorable soup crocks.  They are definitely one of my favorite things this week.  We are going to be having chili for game on Sunday and I can't wait to use them.  Are you in need of some?  Click HERE to check them out.

5.   Dieting......

               Afternoon Funny Picture Dump 37 Pics

Hope your weekend is fabulous!  I've been out of town all week and am looking forward to going home tonight.  Before I head home I have a Scandal viewing party to attend.  It's been a long week so I hope I can stay awake.  Sunday I'm doing some crafting for a wedding shower I'm helping with and then we have the big game to watch.  To be honest, I'm watching more for the commercials and half time show this year instead of the game.  See you soon!

  2. I didn't know there was a third book from Jojo Moynes! I will have to add it to my read list! And I'm super excited for JT's new album and halftime show. I love knowing he's in my town right now, lol. Have a great weekend!

  3. Yea, I'm not a big fan of the Superbowl either, so I will also be watching for the halftime show and the commercials :) Justin's new song is very catchy, so I'm excited to see what he does this year.

    Hope you enjoy your Scandal viewing party, getting settled home again, and your weekend! PS: Those soup crocks are adorable!

  4. Happy Friday!
    I didn't know JT was releasing a new album, but you know it's going to be good because it's JT.
    I love the soup crocks!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  5. He saw his shadow! WHYYY??? lol
    I don't really care for football but the rest of my family loves it. We'll have some fun snacks though, I'm sure, so that's a plus. :)
    I've heard two of Justin's new songs and I like them!


  6. I read two reviews of Still Me this week and in both cases the blogger loved the book.

  7. Justin's new album is so good!! Great picks for this week!

  8. I love that soup crock! I've listened to a few of JT's new songs and I'm not sure how I feel about them. It's definitely a detour from what he normally does.

  9. I saw the small soup crocks at World Market and wanted to buy them all. (P.S. I didn't.)

  10. Ugh the bloating situation is real over here this week. Lol!
    Those soup crock bowls are adorable. They remind me of another line of crock ware but the name is escaping me right now.
    I totally have to catch up on all this seasons episodes for Scandal. In fact, I think I’ll start that tonight.

    I hope your has been good even though you’ve been super busy. :)
