Favorite Finds Saturday

Such a nice week for August in the mid-Missouri area!  We had a couple of really hot days but for the most part it was a great week.  Many local area schools started back this week, so my Facebook feed was full of pictures of back-to-school moments.  I love seeing all the kids dressed up and with their new backpacks.  Love this time of year.

I found a few great things to share with you this week.

1.  One is an Instagramer that I just love.  You can find her at @CarolineCalloway  on instagram.com.  She's an American girl at Cambridge University.  She posts darling snippets of her college life, but with a decidedly charming edge.  She has a book coming out, so get to know her now!

2.  I am in love with the summer salad from Dewey's Pizza called the Blueberry Almond Salad.  Here's their menu description:  Field Greens with fresh Blueberries, Asiago Cheese, and Marcona Almonds tossed with our Lemon Ginger Vinaigrette.  Yes, it is every bit as good as it sounds.  The portion in the photo is the side salad.  I could have licked the plate, the dressing is that amazing.

3.  I was introduced to an on-line quiz maker at my staff development. The name of it is Kahoot. Have you heard of it?  It's so much fun.  Go here to create your free account:  https://getkahoot.com/
Then play some of the public Kahoot games.  You can make up your own, too.  What a perfect thing to do for your family holiday gatherings.  I'm already making ours.

4.  I found Brad's Deals on Facebook.  They were advertising a set of Croc watershoes for $10.  I knew those shoes were way more expensive than that, as I wanted to buy a pair before we left for vacation this summer.  I clicked, used the promo code list and sure enough, the very pair I wanted, color combo and all, was $10.  I have since ordered other really great deals there, too.  Sign up is free, you get a daily email listing what deals they have found, and so far, no repeats!  Check them out here:  Brad's Deals

Have a lovely weekend!  My husband's brother and his entire family and our daughter and son-in-law are all attending the American Cancer Society Cardinal's baseball game on Sunday.  SOOOO looking forward to this fun fun event.  Hope you have time for fun things, too!
