Five for Friday~Actually on a Friday~Please Don't Faint

Linking up with  Doodle Bugs' Five for Friday again! 

First off, I must show you the dingy fuzzies that I promised to link up from my "Spark Motivation" post earlier this week. See...dingy and dirty...but they still do the trick!  If you are just dying to know why I would put dirty balls on my blog, please head over to {this link} to read about how that is really totally appropriate.  {Lord, I'm probably going to get a ton of spam comments for that last sentence...}

Next up, a little field trip to our local science center to learn about the solar system.  This session was titled "Kinesthetic Astronomy"!  Loved it!

This was very hands-on and engaging!  We had a great day today :)


Have you heard of Goodies?

This little gem arrived this afternoon!  Score :)  I loved the little surprise in the mailbox after a long week!  This is a "box of the month" club similar to Birchbox or Ipsy.  However, it's snack food!  Ummm...OK :)  Best part~Only $7 a month.  That's a $50 wine gift card tucked in there, people.  For real. (I'm sure there is some little gimmick attached to it to have me buy wine online to receive it, but still.


Oh, darn.  That's not really mine.  It's my parents' picture from their glorious trip to France.  Did I mention that my daughter is going to France in June?  Nope, not me.  So, I'll settle for this on a Friday afternoon to launch summer "sit by the pool" season:

Happy Friday, Y'all!

Have you linked up with Kacey?  Head on over and link up now :)


  1. Those are obviously not the ones that make it home in the pockets and into the wash!! Your right "dingy balls" sounds like a Saturday Night Live skit! Enjoy your time by the pool, we may turn the furnace of this weekend and open a window - woohoo!

  7. Hi Elizabeth!
    I just ordered Goodies for one of my friends. Glad you like it! Glad SOMEBODY likes it... I bought it for her on a whim!

    Funny: I thought your kids were holding giant purple flowers! I think I need stronger glasses...

    Happy weekend, BloggyBuddy!

  9. Enjoying a drink by the pool already? I am jealous! It needs to warm up in VA so we can do the same.

    Enjoy the warmth!

  10. Ohhh the pool picture just made me so very very very jealous! It won't be that warm here for at least a month!
    I've been freezing at the ballfield all week long.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  11. I am very jealous of your poolside afternoon! It is still much too cold for that in Ohio. That snack box sounds like a fantastic deal. I would love to know what that is through!
