Five On Friday



Caitlin: Hat and Mittens


It has been soooo cold here this week. When bundling up to go outside every morning, I came to realize that I only have one pair of gloves and no hats! I love my gloves, but they are too slippery for driving and I can’t text in them. So I order these ‘glittens’ and hat from Urban Outfitters and they were on sale for only $9.99 a piece. I can’t wait for them to arrive!

Dana: Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate for Keurig

I have a Keurig at work but never use it.  I don’t like that the cups aren’t recyclable and that is my primary reason for never using it.  I have coffee before I go to work and try to stick to one cup a day.  If I need more I stroll over to any number of places that have coffee near my library.  But it has been freezing and Caitlin raved about having hot chocolate using her new Keurig at work so I bought a pack of K-cups.  Well, I love having hot chocolate so quickly and easily.  Maybe there is some sort of DIY I can do to reuse the cups.


Caitlin: Wedding Shoe Display


I made this display for my wedding shoes this week. It is still undecided it I love it or not, but you can read about how I did it here.

Dana: Sherlock

I know I have written about my love of Sherlock before but I’m doing it again.  I have watched both episodes of the new season and I just love it!  My favorite part so far has been Sherlock’s best man speech.  Any other Sherlock fans out there?


Caitlin: Conair Bun Maker


I love a good sock bun. I have always just used a rolled up black men’s sock with the toe cut on and that worked just fine. One day I saw this Conair ‘Bun Maker’ at the grocery store and decided to give it a try. GAME CHANGER. The great thing about the ‘Bun Maker’ is that the bobby pins can be push into the actual bun form, making it more secure. It has taken my bun game to another level.

Dana: Teachers

Last night I went to the Board of Ed meeting for the county public schools to watch as teachers and community members spoke in front of the board and superintendent and stood up for themselves.  I proudly watched as my mom stood up and gave a 3 minute wham-bam-pow speech.  It was amazing.  Thank you to all teachers who work so unbelievably hard and are rarely given the credit or compensation they deserve.  You are all rock stars.


Caitlin: Super Bowl


I have decided to root for the Bronco’s purely based on my love for Eric and Jessie Decker. They are just an adorable couple, and he is not that bad to look at in a foot ball uniform 🙂 If you haven’t seen their reality show, Game On, you should check it out. It is guilty pleasure TV at it’s finest.

Dana: World Market 5-Drawer Preston Table

A librarian’s table if there ever was one!  I want this in my home stat!  I don’t know where I would put it or what would go in it but I think it is calling my name.


Caitlin: Mozzarella Wantons

I am making these Mozzarella Wantons for our little Super Bowl get together. The look super easy and delicious. I’ll let you know how it goes!

Dana: On My Shelf

Orange is the New Black on CD to listen to in my car

Loved the show and feel a little better that Piper Kermin’s time wasn’t as crazy as the show makes it seem.  And I have found myself wondering how I would handle prison.

Homeward Bound: Why Women are Embracing the New Domesticity

Maybe because we’re in control of our own domesticity now and not being told that it’s our only option.
