It’s been a whirlwind of a week here, and I still don’t feel like I’ve gotten my bearings. I travelled to Texas this week for my aunt’s funeral, and with all that entails, it wipes you out. Let’s get on with something a little lighter with this week’s Friday 5+1. This post contains some affiliate links.
I know this is kind of an odd item to share, but my cousin had these Breath Savers Protect mints, and they were fantastic. The shape and feel of them is what I liked the most, and they work! Definitely picking up some the next time I’m at the store. It’s the little things, isn’t it?
One of the light moments during my time in Texas was stopping at Magnolia Market on the way back to the airport. Oh my goodness – that place is just plain magic. I’ll be doing a post on all of the amazing finds that are there, but I’m too excited not to share a glimpse. I even did a Facebook Live while I was there (which was absolutely terrifying).
Mini Sodas by the Box
I mentioned that a homecoming after-party was going to be at our house, so I picked up supplies ahead of time. I usually buy small sodas and water bottles since so often they end up going to waste with a group of teens. But I’m always annoyed that I can only find them in six to maybe eight packs of cans (not to mention that they’re usually more expensive than the regular sized versions). Well, I found a 10-pack when I was shopping, and it was only $2.50. Well done Coca-Cola. We moms thank you.
Since we’re talking Chip and Joanna, I figured this pre-finished barnwood shiplap was worth a share. I found this at Menard’s. All you had to do was install it – a great farmhouse aged look.
If you have a piece of furniture that needs to be stripped, Klean Strip Refinisher is the man for the job. I have a video that I need to share, because it’s just that good. But I figured it’s worthy of the 5+1 post as well. It’s better than anything I’ve tried so far.
My +1 for the week – Some People on Airplanes
This has been a peeve of mine for awhile, but having flown this past week, it’s top of mind. Why is it when a plane lands that so many people practically jump out of their seats, grab their luggage, and act like they’re going somewhere? I was in the back of the plane, and this is what happens:
I know that you’re antsy to get off the plane, but this just makes me crazy. Worse yet, on my way home, there were people in the back that virtually ran up the aisle, moving ahead of people vs. waiting for their turn. That about took the cake for me, and I was secretly happy when I spotted them waiting/hovering for their luggage at the baggage claim, while I picked mine up and headed out to the parking lot.
Have an awesome weekend!
