The Friday Five

Friday Five

In the hopes I’ll keep myself to a schedule and post every week, I’ll be introducing a new segment called The Friday Five. I’m going to feature five different things from the week that caught my interest, made me laugh, or I want to share. I’ll feature blog posts, songs I like, YouTube clips – really anything that I want to share with you all from my week. Let’s get started!

1. James Corden premieres on The Late Late Show

James Corden was predictably nervous and a little bit odd during his first time hosting, but he did manage to snag a major guest in Tom Hanks and do a hilarious montage of Hanks’ films:

2. Bee at the Table

This new site is AMAZING. It teaches about Once a Month Cooking – a past time that I have never actually done, but really, really want to start doing. Bee has a ton of recipes and advice for meal planning and shopping lists. It even gives you instructions for how to freeze the meals, which is something I always struggle with…Click on over and check it out!

3. Boom Chicka Pop.

You had me at frosted sugar cookie, but sold me at 140 calories per serving (1 1/3 cups) for deliciously flavored kettle corn. They have other flavors, including sea salt and white cheddar and no this is not a paid blog post. It was just yummy.


4. Orphan Train

My friend Amanda read this book for her Book Club and insisted I read it immediately – and it didn’t disappoint! It’s a dual story, following a teenager (Molly) in the modern day foster care system who helps an elderly woman (Vivian) for community service. In doing so, we also read Vivian’s story of being an orphaned Irish immigrant in the 1920’s. The resilience and strength of both Molly and Vivian is well-written and heartfelt. (The book above links to the Kindle Edition, the words Orphan Train link to a paperback version)

5. Happy Birthday Nomar & Pesky!

Tomorrow our two fur babies are turning five so they must be featured in my first Friday Five! Thanks to these two little bundles of fur and love for being our best friends and making our days brighter for the past five years.
