Some Friday Favorites

This week, I've decided to share a couple of things I have discovered in the past few weeks that I love.

I love the Pretzel M&M's.  They are about 100 fewer calories per single serving than the other M&M's, and the sweet and salty combination is hard to beat.  Yum!  I'm not letting myself eat them very often, but they are a nice perk every once in awhile.

I loved "Toy Story 3," but I thought "Despicable Me" was wonderful, too!  An adorable movie!

Finally, L sent me an awesome link to Google Map Pedometer.  You can put in any town or city and then map a walking, running route for the distance you want to achieve.  I mapped my route in Tiny Town and checked my mileage.  Yes, even Tiny Town can be mapped.  This would be great for vacations or business travel.

And those are some favorites on this Friday.  I am finishing a lot of last minute items on my to-do list this weekend.  Things are changing quickly on Easy Street, and in three weeks I will be back in school.  Seems like there is quite a bit to do between now and then.  Blogging may or may not happen.  But...

I'll write when I can and otherwise--I'll be enjoying these last weeks of my summer.  You enjoy your summer, too!

I put the M & M pretzels in a snack mix for VBS. They were a hit there, too! Enjoy your weekend!

I'm really afraid to try the pretzel m&m's. I know I'll be addicted really quickly to them!
The google pedometer: very cool!

I'll have to try them. I wondered about Dispicable Me because it got mixed review, but I don't usually listen to The Cincinnati Enquirer's critic.
Wow--three weeks! We don't begin until Sept. 7th. We always start AFTER the fair because we lost about 1/3 of our students and some of our teachers!

Okay, two things I haven't done but two things I want to do! I've never heard of pretzel M&Ms before! Gotta try them. That movie is next on my list!

Your favorites sound so delightful Mrs. E. I must try those M&M's, have not seen the movie, but plan too, and the link to map out your walking path seems good too! Great list! I hope you are enjoying your weeks and not thinking about school too much! Blessings to you friend!

Pretzel M&Ms are the bomb! Have you tried the cherry M&Ms? They taste just like chocolate covered cherries but without the yucky cherry! :-) Yummy!!

Enjoy your last weeks off. ~Cousin Ern
