Five on Friday - April 19, 2019

Happy Good Friday!  I'm enjoying a day off work and I hope you are too.  With a little luck, I'll be able to get through my to-do list and then still have a few days to enjoy the Easter holiday.  Before all that, here's my five for today ~

1.  Breakthrough
Have you seen the previews for Breakthrough?  We've probably seen the trailer 20 times and I've gotten tears in my eyes every single time.  This is a true story that actually happened in St. Louis.  I remember when the story was unfolding and I'm curious to see how they portray it in a movie.  Here's the synopsis from Fandango ~
BREAKTHROUGH is based on the inspirational true story of one mother's unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith's adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John's recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. From producer DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven) and adapted for the screen by Grant Nieporte (Seven Pounds) from Joyce Smith's own book, BREAKTHROUGH is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope, and sometimes even a miracle.

2.  Homecoming:  A Film by Beyonce
Are you a Beyonce fan?  Is so, you're going to want to see this.  On Wednesday, Netflix began showing a movie titled Homecoming: A Film by Beyonce.  It's a documentary made up from a mixture of footage from the actual Coachella performance and video-diary-style footage of everything that went on behind the scenes.  She also released a surprise live album sharing the same name.  You can grab the album HERE.  I'll definitely be watching the movie this weekend!

3.  Philadelphia Dips
Having company coming over this weekend but no time to make an appetizer?  Try one of these three Philadelphia dips!  There are three flavors to choose from:  Jalapeno Cheddar, Buffalo State with Celery, and Southwest Style Black Bean and Corn.  They are made with real vegetables and are deliciously rich and creamy.

5.  A little humor.....


Hope you have a wonderful Easter!  We're looking forward to spending some time with family and having a bit of time at home to wipe out a few projects.  We'll also be in front of the television Saturday night cheering for the St. Louis Blues!  See you next week.

  1. Breakthrough just looks amazing and I KNOW I'll be crying through quite a bit of it. Two of my boys have been cracking up watching funny sign vides on YouTube this week; I'll have to show them that one.

  2. Wicker earrings?? OMG...I need some of those!!
