Five on Friday - December 11, 2020

 Whoop!  Whoop!  It's Friday!  Let's get this weekend started with my five for today ~

1.  Peppermint Hot Cocoa Blizzard
The blizzard of the month at Dairy Queen is like a holiday in a cup.  Candy cane pieces, choco chunks, and cocoa fudge is blended together with signature DQ soft serve.  YUM!  Pop by your local DQ and pick one up when you're out looking at Christmas lights.

2.  Wild Mountain Thyme Movie
This movie looks like one we will love and it's out today.  Here's the summary from Rotten Tomatoes:
Headstrong farmer Rosemary Muldoon has her heart set on winning her neighbor Anthony Reilly's love. The problem is, Anthony seems to have inherited a family curse, and remains oblivious to his beautiful admirer. Stung by his father's plans to sell the family farm to his American nephew, Anthony is jolted into pursuing his dreams.


I love the idea of this book!  With the kids underfoot a little bit more than normal these days, you might be looking for a fun activity to keep them busy for a bit.  This book offers a fun creative outlet and is full of Christmas illustrations.  It even comes with five washable, nontoxic ink pads.  This would make a great stocking stuffer!

4.  Cups and Stand
I've been toying around with the idea of setting up a coffee bar in our kitchen and I can't get these cups and stand out of my mind.  Aren't those cups beautiful!  The cups are a big 16 ounces, so they would be great for that big cup of coffee or tea to get you started in the morning.  And they ship before Christmas if you're still looking for that one special gift.

5.  Counting the days...

Now let's get this weekend started!  Our Christmas cards are sitting on the table half-finished and I'm hoping to spend some time on them this weekend.  I would be a happy camper if they were in the mail come Monday.  Wrapping is also high on the to-do list.  Pop in next week to see the progress.


  1. LOL! I'm so afraid I would be like that with a chocolate advent calendar.

  2. Ha ha!! You are so cute!!
    Want to watch Wild Mountain Thyme. Sounds good.
    Need a cup holder for our cocoa mugs. Will check
    yours out.
