Five on Friday - November 27, 2020

Happy Friday!  Are you still in a turkey coma from yesterday?  I'm so glad we have a couple days to recover before going back to work!

Today is a special day - it's my mom's birthday!  Happy birthday, Mom!  In a normal year, we would be out shopping together today.  We'll just have to make up for it once covid is behind us.

Now let's get to my five for today ~

1.  Funfetti Baking Kits
Ready to do some holiday baking with the kiddos?  Pillsbury has you covered!  They have two adorable kits available for your baking pleasure.  Each kit comes complete with the cookie mix, three cookie cutters, frosting, sprinkles, a pastry bag, and a recipe book.  Best of all, each kit also comes with two Pillsbury Doughboy hats to wear while you're whipping up your creation!  Sounds like a great holiday activity!

2.  Season Two of Virgin River
I'm so excited to have Season Two of Virgin River to watch this weekend!  Netflix is releasing the 10 episode season today.  If you have seen Season One, it's worth a watch.  Here's the synopsis ~
Virgin River follows Melinda "Mel" Monroe, who answers an ad to work as a midwife and nurse practitioner in the remote California town of Virgin River, thinking it will be the perfect place to start fresh and leave her painful memories behind.

3.  Frontier Follies
Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman, has a new book out and it sounds delightful! Here's the summary from Amazon ~

A down-to-earth, hilarious collection of stories and musings on marriage, motherhood, and country life from the #1 New York Times bestselling author and star of the Food Network show The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond.

In this relatable, charming book, Ree unveils real goings-on in the Drummond house and around the ranch. In stories brimming with the lively wit and humor found in her cookbooks and her bestselling love story, The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels, Ree pulls back the curtain and shares her experiences with childbirth, wildlife, isolation, teenagers, in-laws, and a twenty-five-year marriage to a cowboy/rancher.

A celebration of family life, love, and (mostly) laughter, Frontier Follies is a keepsake to curl up with, have a good laugh, and remember all that’s wonderful (and funny) about family.

4.  Dab-N-Seal Envelope Moistener
Are you planning on sending out holiday cards this year?  The part I despise most about the entire job is sealing the envelopes.  No way do I want to lick them!  Each bottle is good for approximately 1,500 envelopes.  These are great for any occasion where envelopes are involved - think weddings, showers, thank you notes.  At $5.50 for a 4-pack, it's a great investment!

5.  How true is this...

Enjoy the rest of the Thanksgiving weekend!  We really don't have anything much going on.  There's one deal on a treadmill I'm hoping to catch.  I do plan on spending some time organizing my thoughts and figuring out what gifts still need to be purchased for Christmas.  Be sure to visit my Instagram page on Monday because I'm participating in a HUGE giveaway!  See you soon!


  1. Virgin River sounds like a series I'll want to see. The baking kits also sound wonderful!

  2. Definitely in a turkey coma, but also savoring good memories.

  3. Oooh forgot about VR...perfect timing as im decorating & painting this weekend.

  4. You and your mom look so much alike! I hope she has a wonderful birthday today. Heading to turn on Virgin River right now; I love that show!
