Five on Friday

It's finally FRIDAY!!  Yippee!!  And since it's Friday, you know what that means...it's time for another Five on Friday linkup with my dear friend Darci over at The Good Life Blog, Hello! Happiness, Carolina Charm and A. Liz Adventures...

Here's what I've got for you today:

1.)  These bars.  Oh my goodness, these bars.  I found this recipe when Shay posted it over on her blog:  Mix and Match Mama, and I've gotta tell ya...they are phenomenal!!  The perfect combo of strawberry and creamy lemon cheesecake, that just screams summer time.  And the best part, they are made with a boxed cake mix, so they are super to simple and quick to whip up.  You can find that recipe here.  Try 'em.  You won't be disappointed.  Trust.

2.)  So this guy right here, and I have a date tomorrow night in Kansas City...Well, actually, it will be more like the hubs and I and a couple of our friends have a date with him, but a girl can dream, right??  I'm not going to say he's my favorite country singer of all time, but I do love me some Kenny Chesney so I'm really looking forward to our little get away this weekend!  I've heard he puts on an amazing concert, so it should be a great time!  I will be posting pics of our weekend on Instagram, so if you want to see this beefcake up close and personal, just follow me (@jennaschaben) and I'll give you the good stuff ;)

3.)  If you have ever seen any of the Disney-Pixar "Cars" movies, (which if you have children under the age of 10, I'm sure you have seen them all a time or two) then you should recognize this guy...It's "Mater the Tow Truck" aka, Larry the Cable Guy!  We had an event with the hubby's office last night and I got to sit right across the table from him.  It was absolutely one of the funniest nights of my life.  I literally think I laughed through the entire event.  I may have even let out a few snorts during dinner!  He is truly a genuinely nice guy and he's from Nebraska, and a die hard Husker fan, so we got along quite well...GO BIG RED!!!

4.)  I may or may not have made a little detour while shopping for A's Father's Day present in Von Maur this week...But I just couldn't help myself.  It's not my fault that the men's shoe department is directly across from the women's!!  But ladies, I scored the best deal on these little numbers right here.  The nude wedge is a Nine West, originally $89.  And the cognac pump is a Franco Sarto, originally $89 as well.  But if you look closely, you will see that I got both pairs for a grand total of $44!  Would have you turned that down??  I think not!  Deal of the month right there...

5.)  And last, but certainly not least, I couldn't leave you without a picture of my little man...I mean, seriously.  I might be biased because he is my own flesh and blood, but c'mon!  Have you ever seen a cuter little booty??  And no, I'm not typically that redneck mom that let's her child run buck naked in the back yard, but he ran away from me as I was changing him into his swimsuit.  He proceeded to grab this baseball, and practice his throwing skills.  So I did what any Mama would have done.  I didn't stop him, I grabbed my camera and snapped this shot that will probably come back to haunt him the first time he brings a girl home to meet us...

I hope y'all have a fantastic weekend!!  I know I will :)

Until next time...

    1. No way!!! That is so awesome!! Do you have ties to the great state of Nebraska, or are you just Husker fans?? Either way, I'm so glad you popped over and said hi!!
