Five on Friday - July 23, 2021

Happy Friday!  Glad we've made it to the weekend.  We are ready to spend a couple days at home.  But before we start that, let's look at my five for today ~

1.  Ted Lasso - Season 2
It's back!  Ted Lasso is back starting today for Season 2.  If you didn't watch the first season, add it to your list!  This show is full of laughs mixed with life lessons.  Jason Sudeikis is perfect for his role as Ted and the supporting staff is amazing.  I can't wait to get home from work and see what Season 2 has for us.

2.  2021 Tokyo Olympics
Let the games begin!  I absolutely love watching the Olympics.  I'm fully expecting to spend a lot of time in front of the television between today and August 8 soaking up sports we never watch except for the Olympics (hello ribbon twirling).  And what about those new events in surfing and skateboarding.  What are your favorite events?

3.  National Hot Fudge Sundae Day
Sunday is a day I can definitely get behind - National Hot Fudge Sundae Day!  I'm adding the fixings to my grocery list now so I'll be ready to scoop up hot fudge sundaes to pay tribute to this special day.  Don't forget the whipped cream and cherries for the top!

4.  Echo Dot
Have you seen the new echo dots covered in Diane von Furstenberg's designs?  They are adorable!  They would make a perfect gift for the kiddo headed off to college.  They come in three new designs and are worth taking a look at.  Even though we currently have three dots in our house, I'm looking at these new ones thinking we just might need another one.

5.  Thoughts...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I'm so excited about next week.  I'm picking up my niece and nephew and they will be spending a few days at our house.  Lots of planning is going to be taking place this weekend to ensure their visit is a blast!  My daughter-in-law and I are going to a pop-up jewelry sale tomorrow and then out to lunch.  Always love spending time with her!  Hope to see you back next week for the recap!

Linking up with:


  1. Pretty sure my husband and sons will have all our ice cream eaten by Sunday but that is definitely a holiday I could get used to celebrating.

  2. I hope you have an amazing weekend full of fun. I now want some ice cream for dessert. I am so enjoying watching the Olympics too.

  3. I am so excited to watch the Olympics! We love gymnastics and swimming! Hope you had a great weekend!
