Five on Friday - April 12, 2019

Hello Friday!  Oh my - this week has been a truly great one.  On Wednesday I had the opportunity to meet a blogger friend that was in town from Colorado.  Do any of you read Jodie's Touch of Style? Well, on Wednesday night I had the opportunity to have dinner with her.  Guys, she's wonderful!  I'll be sharing more about meeting her and the fashion show I attended with her as a model later.   But now I want to share my five for this week ~

1.  Game of Thrones Whiskey
I'm sure this is news to no one, but the eighth and final season of Games of Thrones starts on Sunday night.  We don't watch (I know!), but all the hype has made me a little sorry we never got into it.  If you are heading to a watch party and want to give a cool hostess gift, Johnnie Walker has you covered.  Pick up a bottle of their White Walker, throw it in the freezer and watch the Game of Thrones themed picture magically appear when the temperature falls.

Sorry, Tyrion Lannister, but now everyone is able to drink and know things. While Game of Thrones fans have been waiting (not-so-patiently) for the highly anticipated eighth and final season of the series, Johnnie Walker announced a new line of Thrones-inspired whiskies to hold us over. Not only is there a White Walker by Johnnie Walker bottle inscribed with "Winter Is Here" on the side, but there's also an entire Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection with a bottle for each House of Westeros — including one for The Night's Watch!
White Walker by Johnnie Walker and the Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection are both available in liquor stores nationwide. The collection ranges from $30 to $65. Read on to see all the fascinating House bottles, because Tyrion said it best: "Everything's better with some wine whisky in the belly." Cheers!



            Here's Why Daenerys Will Be Forced to Kill Jon Snow in Game of Thrones Season 8

2.  MAC Fresh Brew
Joanna Gaines recently revealed her favorite lipstick - and it's actually one we can afford!  MAC Fresh Brew won her heart and it might just win yours too!  It's under $20 and Joanna says "the best long-lasting nude lipstick I’ve found!".  It seems lots of people love it because it has over 5,000 positive reviews.  Get it HERE.

3.  Cape Line Sparkling Cocktails
Summer is coming and we love sitting on the patio in the evenings enjoying a cocktail.  These premixed canned cocktails come in three flavors:  hard strawberry lemonade, margarita and blackberry mojito.  I'd be happy with any of them in my hand!  Wonder where you can find them in your area?  Cape Line's only store locator (HERE) will point you in the right direction.

4.  Easter Donuts
Have you seen the Easter donuts at Krispy Kreme?  You guys - they are SOOOO cute!!  It would be so fun to surprise your kiddos (or neighbors, or friends, or ANYONE) with these adorable pasteries.  Just look at their cuteness!

Okay guys, I'm off to get some stuff done.  We have a big weekend over here.  Tomorrow is wedding work day for a wedding I'm helping with in June.  It will be invitation making central at our house!  Then on Sunday I'm hosting some friends to celebrating one's birthday.  So much fun stuff happening!  Pop back in next week to hear all about it.

  2. I've never watched game of thrones either. People are like wtf and it's like sorry? Ha, have a good weekend!

  3. Omg that meme is me today/ was at a panera with some coworkers when someone passed around a tray of bites and the two men I work with were like “no thanks” AS I LEANED OVER TO GRAB A BEAR CLAW. Manners, what manners?? 🤣

    Hope you have a great weekend and it’s never too late to catch up on GOT! It’s so good!!!

  4. I might check out a Game of Thrones party just to get a little of that whiskey. (I'll keep the Krispy Kreme Easter donuts to myself!)
