Five on Friday - September 23, 2022

So glad it's finally Friday!  I'm off work today so I don't have to wait until five o'clock to start the weekend.  YAY!  Let's start it off with my five for this week ~

1.  Avatar
The 2009 Academy Award-winning Avatar returns to theaters today for a whole new generation to see.  The sequel is coming out in December, so we have a chance to see the first one again and familiarize ourselves again with what happened in the alien world of Pandora.  I'm kind of excited to see it again.  Here's the summary: 
On the lush alien world of Pandora live the Na'vi, beings who appear primitive but are highly evolved. Because the planet's environment is poisonous, human/Na'vi hybrids, called Avatars, must link to human minds to allow for free movement on Pandora. Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), a paralyzed former Marine, becomes mobile again through one such Avatar and falls in love with a Na'vi woman (Zoe Saldana). As a bond with her grows, he is drawn into a battle for the survival of her world.

2.  Hostess Bouncers
Hostess has taken our favorite products and made them smaller.  They are calling them bouncers!  Bouncers are creme-filled snack cakes that are easy to pack in a lunch box.  Right now, the smaller versions are available for Twinkies, Glazed Chocolate Ding Dongs (my favorite!), and Cinnamon Donettes.  Sounds like great snacks for a road trip!  If I see these in the store, they are definitely going in my cart.

3.  Dreamland by Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Sparks strikes again!  His newest book was released this week and I hear it's another hit.  Here's the summary from Amazon ~
Colby Mills once felt destined for a musical career, until tragedy grounded his aspirations. Now the head of a small family farm in North Carolina, he spontaneously takes a gig playing at a bar in St. Pete Beach, Florida, seeking a rare break from his duties at home.
But when he meets Morgan Lee, his world is turned upside-down, making him wonder if the responsibilities he has shouldered need dictate his life forever. The daughter of affluent Chicago doctors, Morgan has graduated from a prestigious college music program with the ambition to move to Nashville and become a star. Romantically and musically, she and Colby complete each other in a way that neither has ever known.
While they are falling headlong in love, Beverly is on a heart-pounding journey of another kind. Fleeing an abusive husband with her six-year-old son, she is trying to piece together a life for them in a small town far off the beaten track. With money running out and danger seemingly around every corner, she makes a desperate decision that will rewrite everything she knows to be true.
In the course of a single unforgettable week, two young people will navigate the exhilarating heights and heartbreak of first love. Hundreds of miles away, Beverly will put her love for her young son to the test. And fate will draw all three people together in a web of life-altering connections . . . forcing each to wonder whether the dream of a better life can ever survive the weight of the past.

Do you have big plans for Halloween?  I have a few things coming up and from the minute I spotted these earrings, they've been on my wish list.  Aren't they so cute!  The price is right too.  Pretty sure the Amazon driver will be dropping these off at my doorstep.  

5.  Hmmm...

This is going to be the best weekend!  We are going to our nephew's wedding!  And I'm the officiant!  Wish me luck. See you back next week.
