Five on Friday - August 30, 2019

Happy Friday!  Do you have a long weekend ahead?  I'm so looking forward to being off on Monday!  We've had a busy week, so an extra day off is just what we need.

Enjoy my five for today ~

1.  Starbucks's New Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew
Ok - did you wait in line at Starbucks on Tuesday to be one of the first to try their new Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew?  The baristas are busy whipping up the cold brew with vanilla, topped with frothy pumpkin cream cold foam and a little sprinkle of pumpkin spice topping.  This is their first new pumpkin-infused coffee drink since the famous PSL (pumpkin spice latte) in 2003.  If you've tried it, let me know what you thought.

2.  The Pioneer Woman Magazine
Something new showed up on the news stands this week - The Pioneer Woman Fall Magazine!  This publication only comes out quarterly and I have to admit, I get a little giddy each time a new one arrives in the mail.  Hoping to find some time this weekend to sit back and thoroughly enjoy each and every page.  Want a subscription?  Click HERE to get started.

3.  National Toasted Marshmallow Day
Celebrate today's national holiday by lighting up the firepit and roasting some marshmallows!  What a day to celebrate!  How do you like your's cooked?  Do you stick them straight in the fire until they are ablaze?  Or do you keep them just above the flame and let them get nice and gooey?  I'll take them either way because toasted marshmallows are one of my favorite things! 

National Toasted Marshmallow Day - August 30

I got a new OPI polish this week and, I have to admit, I bought it just because I loved the name.  It's called Tickle Me France-y.  So cute!  Who gets the job to name nail polishes anyway?!?  I would love to just sit in on one of those meetings.  Anyway - back to the polish.  It's a wonderful neutral color perfect for the transition between summer and fall.  Click HERE to grab some for yourself.

5.  Reminder for the weekend.....

Hope you have a great weekend!  We don't have a lot planned.  Tonight we're having dinner out and the rest of the weekend is up for grabs.  Maybe, just maybe, I'll try to do a little cleaning in the basement.  Doesn't that sound like fun!  Somewhere down there is a recipe for homemade apple butter.  It would make my week if I could find it.  Wish me luck!

  1. I must admit my ignorance: I’ve never seen that magazine. Going to explore...
    So looking forward to a weekend of family and being together!
    And good luck finding that recipe!

  2. I love getting my Pioneer Women magazine in the mail! I have it in my work bag to read on my lunch break. I, also, got the new Rachael Ray this week. I need to spend some weekend time reading mags!
    I haven't tried the new pumpkin drink. I'm not a huge coffee fan, but I enjoy a few flavored ones.

  3. I wish you hadn't told me about the pumpkin latte. Starbucks is a block from my apartment and I've been counting calories. It sounds divine and I love their cold brew. I love that Pioneer Woman started as a blogger and I have a perfect OPI color also called 'Worth a Pretty Penne" also neutral and great for fall.
