Five on Friday

I’ve been kind of stuck lately on what to share in my Five on Friday because I always assume that everyone else already knows about all of the things I know about. But then I realized that that was ok because then we could share in our mutual love of these five random things! That’s what I’m telling myself at least…




The continental United States seems to be stuck in an icebox and with that comes one of the worst Itch-uarys on record. Snow shovel makers and lotion producers rejoice. It doesn’t help that in every effort to avoid getting sick from the munchkins I am constantly washing my hands. To help prevent my hands from splitting, and thus allowing me to still cook with lemons, I’ve been using Bath and Body Work’s True Blue Spa Super-Softening Hand Lotion (why so many words?!). I put it on while I’m doing my make up in the morning and then before bed, what a difference it makes!




I have high hopes that it’ll get warm soon and flowers will start blooming but until then, I’ve decided to just wear the flowers. I found this at Target this week and was very happy to see it marked down to $13. Technically I’m still on my spending hiatus but being stuck in a grey and gloomy weather pattern, I felt it necessary to add some color to my life. I picture it with my olive pants and a chambray shirt. It would also pair well with item three…




I cannot afford these boots. But I love them and dream of them.



It is with shame and orange fingertips that I include Lay’s potato chips in my Friday Faves. I can’t stop eating these! The crunch, the sweet and salty flavor. Guh. Who needs fruit and vegetables?! It is impossible to think of swimsuit season under 5 blankets.




This last one is for Noah dog (hopefully the picture gave that away). Noah is a very strong chewer. He doesn’t usually get into too much that he isn’t supposed to, although I can think of a few examples… a tube of MAC concealer, tissues, pens… but when he does, it’s demolished. We try to keep lots of mental stimulation toys (or as I like to call them, dog sudoku)  around the house to avoid these disaster. But we have learned that just because a toy says its indestructible, does not make it so. Generally, if it isn’t in a million pieces in the first 20 minutes, it has passed the test. This Everlasting Treat Wheel by Starmark has become his new favorite thing. Even when it’s empty, he likes to toss it around and chase it as it rolls away. It’s become my favorite thing because when we have company over that isn’t as interested in his TSA sniff-downs, we can pop a disk in and he spends the next 3 hours entertained nearby. Win-Win!

Now let’s have it, are any of these YOUR favorite things? Check out The Good Life to see more Five on Friday posts!
