Five On Friday - Snow Day!

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along! Today is a SNOW DAY here in Charlotte -- Ian doesn't have to work and we are just enjoying some family time with a fire and classical music on in the background. Good stuff!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

Amazon Prime question for you tech-savvy ladies. I'm definitely making our annual membership cost worth it with the free 2-day shipping, and I also take advantage of the Subscribe and Save program. I've recently downloaded Prime Video on my iPad but haven't really put it to the test, and I've also heard there is unlimited photo storage on their cloud?
If any of you are using your Prime membership to your max potential, please educate me about how to do the same. I'm all ears and would love to learn!

I tried the month-long free trial before committing to Amazon Prime. 
If you'd like to do the same, for a free 30-day Amazon Prime trial ... just click here.

A little something different this pregnancy go-round that I just wanted to share ... this Honest Company organic belly balm is extremely yummy! I mean, not that I've eaten it or anything, but it feels yummy and smooth going on. I've used it daily on my stomach to help keep the skin healthy while it grows and stretches. You can find it at multiple retailers online, but this one has it with free shipping and returns. It's $16, so not as inexpensive as coconut oil, but it seems to absorb better for me and it goes on much smoother.

I was searching for cute Valentines Day arts and crafts for Camille to do and ran across this idea on Pinterest. I just have to pick up some googly eyes and we are all set to make our little love butterflies! The link I included doesn't have too many directions (although it looks prettttttty self-explanitory) but it does contain lots more craft ideas and is worth checking out.

Never before have I been so excited about football, but our Panthers have been doing SO well this season, and Sunday night will let us know whether we will be watching them in the Super Bowl or not! The team is so fun and spirited, and the city has been electric. I'll definitely be rooting for the Cats this Sunday evening. How about you?

All I have to say last is that after all of this gestational diabetes hooplah, my one request is for someone to bring this recipe to the hospital when I deliver our new baby. Mmmmkay? Mom, sis ... you think I'm kidding? Well, I'm not. Seriously.

This Maple Caramel Bacon Crack is to-die for! Such an easy, foolproof dessert or appetizer that's loaded with buttery maple caramel and crispy, smoky bacon.:

TGIF y'all, and hope you will join in on Five on Friday this week! Cheers to the weekend!

  1. YES! Go PANTHERS!!! It's so exciting! I just hope all this ice/snow melts before Sunday! I love those valentines - your post reminded me to find a craft for Davis to make as well. :) Enjoy your snow day!

  3. Okay let's try this again. The original comment I posted automatically put some funky link in it. What I was saying, Panthers electricity here down in Waxhaw too. So exciting. We have ice this morning in our parts, hoping to not lose power. Thanks for hosting.

  4. Something a lot of people don't know about Amazon Prime is that if one of your Prime items arrives late, Amazon will extend your membership by one month. You have to ask for it, but any customer service rep is authorized to do it. I find the chat feature the easiest.

  5. I love our Amazon Prime subscription. Their video streaming service is great. We just finished the series The Man in the High Castle it is a dystopian reality of what the world would be like if the Axis powers would have won the war.

  6. PANTHERS! It's been SO amazing! We just started using Amazon Prime because I've heard being a new mama, the 2 day shipping is CRUCIAL! Happy Snow Day!

  7. I'll be following along for Prime Video tips. I'd love to start using it more. I'll be rooting for Peyton and the Broncos this weekend. And if I was closer, I'd bring the bacon...it looks divine! Happy Friday! Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. GO PANTHERS!! Cam was my QB in Fantasy this season so I am a huge fan!! :) Rooting for y'all to go all the way!

  9. I am so hoping for a Patriots/Panthers Superbowl!!! How fun would that be?!?! I need to use Amazon Prime for more than free shipping...we flip through some of their videos, but they're pretty limited. I would love to know more about photo storage, though!! Someone needs to do a tutorial on how to maximize your membership!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hooray for a much needed snow day in our house too! We'll be cheering on the Panthers as well.

  11. I mainly use my Amazon Prime for of course the 2 day shipping, but also for the photo storage! You can download the app on your phone so it takes all your pictures from your phone and stores them in the "cloud" (which I have honestly no earthly idea how that works, but whatever). Usually I plug my phone in to charge, open up the app and let it do its thing! by morning, all my photos from the month have uploaded and I'm good to go! :)

  12. We LOVE LOVE LOVE our Amazon Prime. I seriously do not know what we would do without the free 2-day shipping. We also don't have cable and just watch Amazon Prime. It is awesome for all the kids programs. I don't know anything about their cloud storage, but we started using their music as well which has been working great! Totally random, but we use Subscribe & Save for our dog food, which we buy in bulk with 2 great danes. We save over $100/ month using it. I use S&S for diapers, wipes, laundry detergent, and dishwasher tablets as well! Couldn't recommend it more!

  13. I use Amazon Warehouse for the BEST deals on baby items like diapers and wipes. I usually get a box of diapers for 30% + off retail with free shipping just because the exterior of the box might not be in perfect condition.

  14. Go panthers!!! So so excited for Sunday, hoping they can pull through... How exciting would that make the super bowl?! Happy Friday and stay warm! Xo

  15. I have a serious love of Prime. We tried to cancel it recently, but only made it three weeks. We watch some of the Prime shows and I really enjoy having it. I haven't really used the subscribe and save, because I rarely need things as often as they send them.

    ReplyDelete
  16. OH prime. We use prime video in place of netflix. it's not quite the same, but it totally works for us. Obviously I abuse the 2day shipping - but have you checked out PrimePantry? Omg. I love. Especially for like, paper goods and such.

  17. ahh, you are just the cutest!! Happy Friday!!

  18. Don't know if you know this (it took me a while to figure it out) but you can link more than one Amazon account to the Prime account for the same household. So you and Ian can both have the benefits of Prime on your accounts (for the cost of one account). This comes in especially handy for buying gifts for your significant other and keeping it a secret!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I had no idea about the photo storage on prime! I love the amazon music app, and I need to check out more of their shows. OMG bacon crack!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Enjoy your snow this weekend! I wish we were getting some!

  21. Amazon prime is amazing and so worth the money! People only really use if for the shipping and don't realise all the other awesome things it can do. I am one of those people that needs my moneys worth so I always use everything things have to offer.
    Download the app to your phone and it automatically syncs all your photos into your cloud, it is unlimited storage too which is nice.

  22. I had dreamed about pizza when I had GD. When it was time to start pushing (9pm) I had Joe order 2 large pizzas to have waiting when Charlie arrived. 11:24pm I was asking for that pizza. Tasted good but honestly the best thing was the apple juice with breakfast the next morning.

  23. Love the Valentines crafts! Thanks for sharing!! :)

  24. We watch Man in the High Castle on Amazon Prime and it is SO AMAZING. A good show for the men and women of the fam.

  25. So glad to hear that you and your family have been enjoying the snow day!! Charlotte always seems transformed during snowy days. :-)

    Happy Weekend!
