Five on Friday - April 2, 2021

 Hello there!  Happy Easter weekend.  I'm enjoying a day off work today because we get Good Friday as a holiday.  The thought of a long weekend has put a smile on my face all week!  Before I start enjoying it, let me share my five for this week with you ~

1.  Pepsi X Peeps
Just in time for Easter, Pepsi is dropping a new flavor that is only here for a limited time - Pepsi X Peeps!  That's right, Peeps flavored Pepsi.  They come in a three-pack of cute little 7.5 ounce cans.  Each pack has a pink, yellow and blue can but the flavor is the same in each one.  Maybe the Easter Bunny will be putting these in baskets instead of eggs!

2.  Beauty Brands Annual Hairspray Sale
It's time to stock up on hairspray at the annual Beauty Brands hairspray sale!  There are so many fabulous brands to choose from - Sexy Hair, Bed Head, Sebastian, CHI and so many more.  Each is only $8.98.  You just can't beat that.  So swing by your closest Beauty Brands and stock up for the year.

3.  The Hill We Climb
Amanda Gorman captivated the world on Inauguration Day with her poem.  This past week her book with the poem hit the stands so you can remember it forever.  Here's the summary from Amazon ~
On January 20, 2021, Amanda Gorman became the sixth and youngest poet to deliver a poetry reading at a presidential inauguration. Taking the stage after the 46th president of the United States, Joe Biden, Gorman captivated the nation and brought hope to viewers around the globe. Her poem “The Hill We Climb: An Inaugural Poem for the Country” can now be cherished in this special gift edition. Including an enduring foreword by Oprah Winfrey, this keepsake celebrates the promise of America and affirms the power of poetry.

New music is coming out today from Demi Lovato.  This highly anticipated seventh studio album serves as the companion to her powerful 4-part YouTube Originals documentary that premiered on March 23.  We'll be able to hear 19 original songs including "Anyone" and "What Other People Say".  This will definitely be playing at my house this weekend!

5.  Say cheese...

Have a very happy Easter!  We'll be going to our son and daughter-in-law;s on Sunday.  The rest of the weekend we are going to work on finding an outdoor furniture set that we love.  We've found several that are okay, but nothing has made us fall in love just yet.  Keeping our fingers crossed that we'll find something this weekend and we can put this search behind us.  See you soon!


  1. The colorful cans of Pepsi are so pretty....not sure of the taste, kinda sounds gross and I’m a big fan of Peeps.....but total packaging win!!!

  2. I can't even imagine what Pepsi Peeps would taste like...

  3. Uhh...I think I'll pass on the Pepsi Peeps but I am curious. LOL

    I'm excited for some new Demi music. And I think my sister would love that poetry book!


  4. Wasn't that inaugural poem extraordinary. And her reading or reciting was like performance art. Had seen the poem in print. Probably need to add it to my library.
    Funny you mentioned the Pepsi. Just saw an ad right now for Pepsi with mango. Hmmm.
