Friday Five (37)

Happy Friday! Sometimes I like to talk about what I am currently into that is not necessarily book related. Here's what I have been up to/thinking about/enjoying lately. Let me know what you think!

1. DoTerra Essential Oils - My son has started preschool this year and although he has a great immune system and rarely needs to take antibiotics, he has been bringing home colds. A lot of them.  I know this is bound to happen, but it has taken its toll on my youngest son and even myself! We seem to be catching every cold. Anyway, my friend recommended DoTerra's OnGuard essential oil to boost our immune system. I have a sample of OnGuard and I bought a diffuser, so I am ready to go. Anyone else a fan of essential oils? I love the concept and I could use some calming ones as well.

2.  Reign - So, Reign is back on! Anyone else a fan? They didn't even advertise (to the best of my knowledge) its return very well. All of a sudden I saw it on my DVR. What's the deal? Either way, I am glad that it has returned despite its glaring historical inaccuracies.

3.  The White Princess - I am so excited that this show will be coming to Starz in April. Did you guys see the trailer? I think it looks awesome. The Cousins' War series by Philippa Gregory is one of my favorites. I am sure this show will do the book justice. So far the casting looks spot on. What do you guys think?

4. This Weekend - The weather this weekend is going to be around 60 degrees!  For February in Pennsylvania, this is pretty much a heat wave. I can't wait to soak up all the sunshine and spend some time outdoors. Who is with me?

5.   Valentine's Day Trifle - I made this with my oldest son on Valentine's Day.  We wanted to do something somewhat healthy and quick for a week night.  This was so easy and a lot of fun to make. A perfect Valentine's Day Treat!

I hope you all have a great weekend. Let me know what you are all up to and what you're reading. I finished up Daughter of Pirate King, which was so much fun and has a Black Sails vibe to it. I am currently reading The Hollywood Daughter --love anything Old Hollywood! Happy Friday!


  1. That trifle looks delicious!

    I am looking forward to the warmer weather too. Maybe it'll stick around and we'll be done with winter :)

    Glad you liked Daughter of the Pirate King. I was thinking of requesting that one.

    I'm going to visit my parents for the long weekend and maybe find a new laptop. Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Christina! I don't really eat too much dairy, so I had only a little, but my son LOVED it. You know I would love to be done with winter. :) I think you'd like Pirate King. It was a lot of fun. It wasn't mind blowing in the very least, but it was entertaining! I hope you have a great weekend and good luck with your laptop search. Thanks for visiting.

  2. What a beautiful trifle! I love that the littlw strawberries look like hearts in there :D

    Its around 60 degrees here right now, too..except that its pouring down rain!! With no end it sight, either. Sigh.

    Let me know how the essential oils work for you! Its something I've always been curious about!

    1. Thanks, Becky! I hope the rain stops for you guys. I know CA has been having some rough weather. Thinking of you guys!
      I just started using essential oils and am really enjoying it so far. It's too soon to tell if it works, but I will let you know as more time passes. It is definitely nice to have some aromatherapy going! Thanks for visiting!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
