Five on Friday - July 9, 2021

This Friday rolled around way too fast!  We've been on vacation this week and the end of our time off has come quicker than I wanted it to.  We've been at Disney World and I can't wait to blog all about it next week, but for now, it's time for my Five on Friday!

1.  Virgin River - Season Three
Today is the day we get to see the fate of the Season Two cliffhanger on Virgin River!  This show captured our attention and we have fallen in love with it.  Netflix is bringing us 10 new episodes to binge and I'm here for it.  Will Jack live?  Will Mel find her happy ending?  Can't wait to find out!

Danielle Steel's newest novel, Nine Lives, hit the stands on Tuesday.  Just in time for summer beach reading!  Here's the summary from Amazon ~
After a carefree childhood, Mary Margaret Kelly came of age in the shadow of grief. Her father, a dashing daredevil Air Force pilot, died when she was nine. Maggie saw her mother struggle to put their lives back together. As the family moved from one city to the next, her mother warned her to beware of daredevil men and avoid risk at all cost.

Following her mother’s advice, and forgoing the magic of first love with a high school boyfriend who was too wild to feel safe, Maggie instead sought out all the things her mother had lost—a predictable partner, a stable home, and a regular paycheck. She chose to marry a dependable, kind man who was a reliable husband and successful accountant. Together they had a son and found happiness in a conventional suburban life. Until tragedy struck again.

Now on her own, feeling a sense of adventure for the first time, Maggie decides to face her fears, setting off on a whirlwind trip from San Francisco to Rome, Paris, and Monaco. But when her travels reconnect her with the very same irresistible, thrill-seeking man she’s spent thirty years trying to forget, Maggie becomes terrified that rushing into love and sharing his life may very well end in disaster. But ultimately, while Maggie tries to outrun her fears and painful memories of her past, fate will surprise her in the most astounding of ways, as she walks the tightrope between danger and courage, and between wisdom and love.

I purchased this t-shirt dress from Old Navy and love it!  I decided to wear it on the plane because we were going to be running straight to dinner when we landed and I wanted to wear something comfy for the plane and yet cute for dinner.  This dress was the winner!  Get yours at Old Navy before they sell out.

You know you love a product when you care enough about it to take it on vacation with you  This silicone body brush is more hygienic than other materials.  The body brush gently cleanses while gently massaging your skin all at the same time.  It's perfect to relax muscles, relieve stress, improve cellulite, promote blood circulation as well as increasing the elasticity of your skin.  See why I brought it on vacation with me!

5.  Still fits...

Have a fabulous weekend!  We will be traveling home and trying to get ourselves ready to go back to work next week.  I'm also going to try to start blogging about our amazing trip to Disney!  See you back here next week.


  1. It's amazing how fast time flies by on vacation isn't it?! I hope you had a fabulous time.

  2. I started watching the first season of Virgin River but didn't get very far....maybe I need to give it another chance! I'm still sad Sweet Magnolias hasn't had a 2nd season..that was a cliffhanger that's kept me wondering for sure.
