Do You Have Five?


This week has gone by crazy fast! I’ve had lots to keep  me busy getting ready to go visit my parents in Virginia today. They moved into a new house when we were visiting Christmas and there are still storage things that neat to be dealt with, so my brother and I are meeting there to spend a week helping them. I’m sure we’ll all enjoy being together and the week will really fly by.

I am going all out crazy today and doing FIVE link ups with FIVE things.

These crackers…at least that’s what I call them. These things are tasty!!! They’re lo-cal and make for a great snack, as a matter of fact I have some in my bag for on the plane. They come in about 5 different varieties, but so far these two are our favorites.


My new bag!!! I love it!!! I was in Target the other day and spotted it and knew it would be perfect to use as a “carry on” for my crackers my ipad and magazines. I brought it home, whipped out my Silhouette Cameo machine and made a vinyl monogram for it. Isn’t it cute?

I’m still loving my new jacket. It’s comfy and just the right weight for this time of year and because I’m always cold on airplanes, I’m wearing it today.  The happy brightness of it adds a nice splash of color to a plain tee (which BTW is shirred on the sides making it great if your not just a regular tee kind me) and jeans.

These precious little hand prints. This was my birthday present in 2001. Even if it didn’t have the kids ages on it, I’d always be able to remember because it was right after 9/11 that we went in to have it made. There was the cutest little ornament with the tiniest little hand on it  of a baby that was born on 9/11. On a day when there was so much sorrow, there was also new life to be celebrated.

We’ve found another coffee we like. One of the perks Katie gets working at Starbucks is to bring home a bag or box of coffee every week. So not only will we miss HER when she leaves for college, but we’ll miss our FREE coffee.


OK friends, I think that does it for this week.

Wish me luck as I go to participate in “The Great Purge of 2016”



Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!!

    Visiting from September Farm! I love the caramel Starbucks Kcups, they are delicious! Your bag is super cute, I have a Cricut and mostly use it for card making and scrapbooking but I've seen so many awesome vinyl projects, I really need to pick up some vinyl and do some experimenting! Have a great weekend. 🙂

      Hi Donna! Thanks for the comment! ? There for a while I was sticking a monogram on anything and everything. I think my has been was afraid to sit still because he was afraid I'd slap one on him ? I had a hard time getting the vinyl to stick to my bag, even though it was permanent vinyl. A blow dryer did the trick though. Give it a shot ??. Have a great weekend!!
