Five on Friday - August 10, 2018

Happy Friday!  It's hard to believe that it's been a week since I was saying goodbye to the ocean.  I sure hope the weekend does fly by as fast as the week has!

Let me show you my five for this week ~

1.  National S'mores Day
Break out the fire pit and whip up some s'mores because today is National S'mores Day.  We've tried a couple versions of this tasty treat recently by switching out the chocolate bar for peanut butter cups or Ghirardelli dark chocolate raspberry squares.  Makes for a nice little twist from the traditional way.  Fun fact: The first recorded version of the s'more recipe can be found in the 1927 publication of Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.

2.  Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes
I know the temps are still in the 90s for most of us and fall seems weeks away, but get ready - the pumpkin spice items are starting to hit the shelves.  Some have spotted the new Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes at Target stores.  This Kellogg cereal is covered in pumpkin spice frosting.  YUM!  I will definitely be on the lookout for a box of this goodness.

Do you have a Starbucks lover in your life?  Bet they would love their very own personalized Starbucks travel cup!  This would be a great gift for your kiddos new teacher, coworkers or bridesmaids.  I have a few people in mind to gift one to, don't you?  Click HERE to purchase.

Personalized Name Starbucks Cup. 16 oz Reusable Travel Cup. Glossy or Glittered Vinyl!

This is a repeat item on Five on Friday, but I've had so many people see mine on my desk at work and ask me where I got it that I thought it deserved another mention.  This little baby is amazing!  For under $10 ($8.99 to be exact), it is the perfect holder for your cell phone or tablet.  It holds my cell phone at an angle that makes it easy to view and I don't loose it on my desk.  I love it so much that I even pack it up and take it with me when I'm working in other locations.  You need one?  Click HERE!

5.  I'm not a runner.....

Have a great weekend!  We have our last Muny performance of the season tonight.  Tomorrow we're having dinner with Ian and Kayla.  Then on Sunday we're going to the PGA Golf Tournament that's being held here in St. Louis.  Eric is so excited about that!!  Fun times ahead.  Pop in on Monday to get the summary.

  1. I came so close to buying the ingredients for s'mores on Monday this week but last time I bought them before we had friends over all the candy bars were gone and I was just left with a bag of marshmallows. I looked for pumpkin spice frosted mini wheats this week since they are my favorite but they're not out just yet....

  2. I love S'mores! They're one of my favorite things. I'll have to try to enjoy this holiday! I'm laughing over that last meme, too funny! Have a great weekend!

  3. Lol that meme... 🤣

    I’m goi to have to look for that cereal. I can’t wait for the fall. This weather is killing my hair lol.

    Also, I have a fire pit now! I should celebrate national s’mores day!

  4. I still need to try smores with a PB cup. Yum!!

  5. That's a cool stand for your phone. I'd like one that would also hold a taco.

  6. Oh no, I missed National S'mores day! Bummer. I love that phone stand and had no idea you could get personalized Starbucks cups. So neat!
