Today's Friday Five is a bit of a hodge-podge. After spending a few days at the MOA, I had plenty to put on my wish list. Here are a few things that have caught my eye - some from my shopping trip, and some not.
These Vans just scream "spring" to me. Love this pattern.
And these Vans, too! I bought Big Sister her first ever pair of Vans when we went on our little spring break trip, and ended up with a "$20 off your next pair of Vans" certificate that I am dying to use on myself.
My children have now begun groaning when we drive around doing errands, because no longer am I letting them listen to music of their choice. I still like their music (most of the time) but since I discovered the Books on the Nightstand podcast, I am totally obsessed with listening to Michael and Ann dish about books. This is the perfect podcast for me!
These Brainbows were a huge hit when we visited Marbles The Brain Store at the Mall of America. They look like tiny little balls, but just add water and presto! They are bigger balls - that do feel really cool. And, as the sales clerk tried to persuade us to buy them, they do shrink back down (after drying out) to their original size.
This might be my favorite purchase from my trip to the Mall of America. I can't even remember the store's name, but it was full of unique little treasures. At the front counter, there was a little box full of pins about reading. Apparently the number of designs was endless, so I just chose a few I liked. This is a great little gift for any book lover. Although these aren't exactly the same, I did find a little collection online that can be purchased.
