Five on Friday - October 2, 2020

Happy Friday!  October has arrived and I'm anxiously waiting for the leaves to start putting on their fall show.  And speaking of fall,  the weather this weekend will definitely have a fall feel so I need to bust out my sweaters!  Before all that, here's my five for this week ~

1.  A Holly Dolly Christmas
I know we are just starting fall and it's a little early to be thinking about Christmas, but is it really?  Dolly Pardon's new Christmas CD releases today and I can't wait to hear it.  I've been a lifelong fan of all things Dolly.  Her Imagination Library has mailed over 145,000,000 free books to kids from birth to five and that alone should make you a fan!  Pick yourself up a copy HERE and start enjoying the sounds of Christmas a little bit early this year.

Speaking of the good things Dolly Pardon does, she has also just started partnering with William Sonoma.  There are all kinds of goodies in the line like cookie cutters and aprons.  A portion of the proceeds from two of her items, the butterfly-emblazoned spatula and matching tea towel, will be benefiting No Kid Hungry.   So cool.

2.  Captain Morgan Sliced Apple
Captain Morgan has something new to celebrate this fall - their new Captain Morgan Sliced Apple rum!  They took their signature Original Spiced Rum, "added a subtle hint of ginger, and fused it all together with the deliciously juicy and crisp taste of fresh-cut apples".   For an Apple Mule, just add 1.5 ounces of Captain Morgan Sliced Apple with 4 ounces of ginger beer.  Anyone else thinking YUM!  

One of my favorite celebrity chefs, Ina Garten, has a new cookbook hitting the stands on Tuesday.  In her newest cookbook, she'll be sharing 85 new recipes.  Here's the summary from Amazon ~
In Modern Comfort Food, Ina Garten shares 85 new recipes that will feed your deepest cravings. Many of these dishes are inspired by childhood favorites—but with the volume turned way up, such as Cheddar and Chutney Grilled Cheese sandwiches (the perfect match for Ina’s Creamy Tomato Bisque), Smashed Hamburgers with Caramelized Onions, and the crispiest hash browns that are actually made in a waffle iron!

The Toy Insider's yearly list of the hottest 20 toys is out and I'm sure the items will be selling out fast!  One of my favorite items in the preschool category is this Pinkfong Baby Shark Dancing DJ.  You can boogie to the beat with 3 interactive games!  The Baby Shark Dancing DJ plays 7 popular songs and remixes including the Baby Shark Song (now you'll be singing that to yourself the rest of the day), Baby Shark Remix, Baby Shark EDM, Baby Shark Official Jauz Remix, Disco Sharks, Shark ABC, and Shark 123.  Get it while you can!  

5.  Shopping List.....

Now let's get this weekend started!  I'm going to bring out all the pumpkins and do some fall decorating this weekend.  Also on the agenda is to add a new light fixture to our closet.  Pop in next week to see it!
