Five on Friday - March 15, 2019

It's Friday!  Man, it came a bit quick for me this week.  It's not very often you would hear me say this, but I could really use another work day this week.  Ever have one of those weeks?  Regardless, I still have five for you today and here they are ~

1.  St. Patrick's Day
Don't forget to wear your green on Sunday - it's St. Patrick's Day!  Did you know that St. Patrick's Day is also known as the Feast of St. Patrick?  The wearing of the green dates back to a story written about St. Patrick in 1726.  Where does the shamrock fit into the picture?  Well, apparently St. Patrick was known to use the shamrock in his stories of the Holy Trinity and to have worn green clothing.  If you miss it, I did a post on our St. Patrick's Day decorations (HERE).

2.  The Aftermath
Here's another movie going on our list of ones we want to see - The Aftermath.  Fandango offers this  synopsis:
In 1946 Rachael Morgan arrives in the ruins of Hamburg to be reunited with her husband, Lewis, who is a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. As they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover that Lewis has made an unexpected decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.
It's not getting great reviews, but I still think we'll give it a watch.  I'm a fan of Alexander Skarsgard so if nothing else I'll just look at him for a couple hours. 

3.  The Newsworthy
My blog friend Shelly over at The Queen In Between turned me on to The Newsworthy podcast and I'm loving it!  I don't always listen to a lot of news and this 10 minute podcast is a great way to keep up to date with what's going on out there.  It promotes itself as fast, fair and fun - and it's free.  I've been listening to it while I get ready in the morning and it's the best!  Thanks for the recommendation Shelly!

I ran across this deal on Amazon - 8 pairs of tassel earrings for only $11.98.  Seems a little too good to be true!  I think this will be a nice addition to my spring wardrobe and it won't break the bank.  They would also be great to break up the set and give as little gifts or pop in goody bags.  Click HERE to check them out.

  1. Oooh I haven’t heard of that podcast before! And shame on me, I totally forgot about St. Patrick’s Day! Hope you have a great weekend, Penny ❤️

  2. I'm looking for more podcasts to check out, especially shorter ones like that. This one sounds perfect! LOL I've seen that last picture before and it has always made me chuckle. Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh I just love that last one; my kids are screen junkies. This time of year they get lots of screen time since it's so awful outside but I've been reminding them that spring is on the way and screens will be going off most every day!!
