Five Favorites (vol. 2)

Linking up with Hallie at Moxie Wife for Five Favorites today!


Vintage Necklaces for Curtain Tie Backs

I am really liking this idea. We just hung, no scratch that, I just put the anchors, screws and screw driver on the dining room table so we can hang new window treatments in the dining room.

I think I might have to try this.




Roasted Sweet Onion Triscuits.

Yum. I discovered these after a last second throw in at the checkout aisle in Target. I am glad I did. A recipe suggestion on the box included Gouda cheese, teeny slice of fig (not a fan so I skipped) and apricot preserves.

It was okay, but I thought them especially delish with sharp, white cheddar cheese.




Tuesday Night Date Nights.

Sounds strange doesn’t it? A few summers ago, my husband and I decided to splurge on a sitter once a week for a date night. We assumed this would be a Friday or Saturday, but said babysitter was only available on Tuesdays. “Tuesday?” We said. No really it was just me. “A date night on Tuesday!?” Who goes on a date on a Tuesday?

We did. That’s who. All summer long. And it rocked.

Do you know you never have to wait at your favorite restaurant on a Tuesday?

Do you know you can get to the movie theater at the actual starting time and you will still get the best seats?

Do you know how many restaurants have incredible specials on Tuesdays because no one goes out to eat on Tuesdays?

Our favorite restaurant had half-off on all bottles of wine.





Fresh flowers on the kitchen table.


I have always thought having fresh flowers in the house such a treat.

Sometime ago we decided we would keep fresh flowers on our table for the 50 days of Easter.

It is such a treat and a beautiful reminder of the Easter season.


We Bought a Zoo soundtrack

We have had this for a while, but we just pulled it out again. So it is sort of a re-discovered favorite.

Majority of the titles are by Jonsi, the guitarist and vocalist from Sigur Ros.

Thank you, Hallie, for hosting!

An awesome week to ya,
