Friday's Five: Favorites x4

So let me tell you about this little thing called Pinterest.  It's a website that allows you to collect, sort, and save images from the Internet.  Think of a gigantic cork board of lovely photos chosen by you.  When I started this a few months ago I was drawn to collecting food photos of recipes I am someday, someday hoping to make.  Since then I have branched out with fashion, bags, home ideas, books, wedding (no I am not getting married again), and crafts.  There are so many ideas out there.  Not only can you collect your photos but you can stalk follow other peoples collection. 

Let me tell you now that time will be lost in your life.  Once you start browsing or pinning images you will lose yourself to a different world and suddenly hours will have passed. No joke...hours will be lost.

I found this bag by Fossil the other day and decided I must have it. Mr. J are you listening?  Valentine's Day is coming up.

Among other favorites this week I finished Erik Larson's new book  "In the Garden of Beast".  I explores Hitler's Germany through the eyes of the US Ambassador's family.  This is a historical book and I found it absolutely fascinating.



Another Pinteresthttp://pinterest.com/ find is this pink door.  Someday when I have a house I am thinking it needs a pink door.


My new/old love is Mrs. Meyer's soap. I used to love Method products and their unique scents.  I still do enjoy them but they have now been topped with Mrs. Meyer's basil.  I got the hand soap for a stocking stuffer but also have the dish soap.  It makes doing dishes a bit more bearable.  My hands are so dry lately and this soap just makes me feel a bit better.  Sometimes it is the little things that make the biggest difference.


Finally, Anthropologie has a new tea towel with a lobster on it.  Not sure what I would do with this one but it is a cute little thing.  It could work as my clothing protector next time I eat a lobster.  They are messy suckers.


I am so thankful it is Friday. This afternoon I am hosting a team building session of fun games.  Then there are two days when I have absolutely nothing that needs to get done.  I cannot wait to relax and have fun this weekend.  Mr. J is back up and running.  After another doctor's appointment it was decided that he had a fluke bacteria infection.  Within a month it will be like it never happened.

Wishing all of you the very best weekend!

  7. I have always thought to paint my door a bright color, yet my husband insists we need a screen door so that idea disappeared. I am avoiding Pinterest due to its time sucking capability! Enjoy the weekend.
