Five on Friday - March 16, 2018

Happy Friday!  I'm treating this like a holiday weekend because St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow!! Do you have your green outfit picked out yet?  It's just the best when this fun day falls on the weekend.

Before I officially start the weekend, here's my five for this week ~

1.  All Green Lucky Charms
In celebration of St. Patrick's Day, check out what Lucky Charms cereal has done!  An entire box of green marshmallows - perfect for making some Lucky Charms treats!  Just melt 3 tablespoons butter with a 10 ounce package of marsmallows and stir.  Dump in 6 cups of Lucky Charms and press in a greased pan.  Allow to cool a bit, then cut.  Perfect little St. Patrick's Day treats!

2.  Easter Pillows
I've had a thing for pillows recently.  You might have seen the two St. Patrick's Day pillows we have in THIS POST.  Well, after this weekend those will be coming down and I'd like to replace them with THIS ONE and THIS ONE.  They look so springy!  And I, for one, am more than ready for a little spring around here!

3.  Sea-Band
I suspect some of you are getting ready to hit the road for Spring Break or are planning your vacations for the summer.  If battling your child's motion sickness is usually part of your travel plans,  you might want to consider using these Sea-Bands.  There's really nothing worse for you (or for your child) than being sick in the car!  These bands provide natural relief without causing drowsiness or other side effects.  Check them out HERE.

4.  Love, Simon
We've been seeing the previews for Love, Simon (which opens today) and it looks so endearing.  Movie Insider says this, "Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it's a little more complicated: he's yet to tell his family or friends he's gay and he doesn't actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he's fallen for online."  Save me a seat because I want to see this one.

  1. Happy St Patrick’s Day, Penny!! Hope you have a great one :) love those green Licky Charms!

    I’d really like to see that movie—there are so many out in theaters that I’d like to see, but I’m always behind. Would love to see a Black Panther too.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. LOL at that Irish curse, that is too funny. I've heard a lot about Love, Simon and it's on my list to see too. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Happy St Pat's day!! Celebrate for me as we've been down & out with sicknesses this week so may just be doing nada tomorrow. We have hockey tickets, fingers crossed we make it!

  4. I haven't seen the green Lucky Charms yet. I've been keeping an eye out for the unicorn ones though. They look so cute! I cannot wait to see Love, Simon. That looks like such a great movie!

  5. Happy St. Patrick's Day. Those green Lucky Charms are adorable. I'm SO ready to see Love, Simon. I loved the book. I hope to see it tomorrow, but at least some point this weekend since opening weekend sales will mean a lot for its success!


  6. Love Simon looks good! I might have to go find me some of those lucky charms too! Have a great weekend Penny!

  7. I like those Easter pillows. I always love having tons of throw pillows!

  8. I’ve never been a fan of Lucky Charms but can certainly appreciate the green theme for St. Patrick’s Day. I hope you had a great weekend and celebrated. :)
