SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!  For fans of Stranger Things that make sure they don’t get spoilers – move on ahead and read about the cute mice Sarah found! 🙂 Everyone else… feast your eyes!  Rumors are flying that the new season (season 4) will be out in December 2020 – a Christmas treat, indeed! 😉

Are you a Stranger Things fan?

I (Sarah) am freaking out over the cuteness.  It’s too much cuteness – if that’s even a thing! This photographer, Dean Mason, snapped some seriously adorable pics of these harvest mice living life to its fullest – which is great, because they only live about 18 months. One cool thing about these little guys, besides being “I wanna keep one in my pocket forever CUTE,” is that they are one of the smallest rodents, and the only mammal to have a prehensile tail – which lets him grasp and hang onto stuff!

Go see more of the pictures (there are like 30 of them, each cuter than the last!), and read more about them!

What’s the cutest thing you’ve seen in the last few days?

This adorable Ella + Mila Nail Polish color “After Party” reminds us of spring.  And guess what – it’s almost SPRING!  It’s just $11.39 for this fun, highly rated polish, too!

Love your Instant Pot!?  Taste of Home has an AMAZING list of 30 Instant Pot Chicken Recipes you have to check out!  They have Jalapeño Popper Shredded Chicken, Chicken Tikka Masala, Instant Pot Wings, White Chicken Chili, and so much more!  YUM!

What’s your favorite chicken dish?

You guys know we love cute stuff and slippers here…. and these take the cake!  How CUTE!  These Happy Feet Slippers come in nearly 60 different animals.  Plus, they have sizes for women and men, and some for kids.  These were on Shark Tank, too – which is so cool on top of the awesome product!

What do your current slippers look like?

Remember The Mighty Ducks movies?  Well, Emilio Estevez is coming back as Coach Gordon Bombay for a Disney+ series. It’ll be ten 1/2 hour episodes in the series. Lauren Graham (from Gilmore Girls) is lead star and producer. Read more

Did you have a tetherball thing (what are the called?) on your playground when you were a kid? I (Jeni) sure did, and I have to admit – I was pretty good!  This miniature tetherball set is so stinking fun, and a great toy to keep on my desk when I get antsy! 🙂
 
What fun games do you remember as a kid on the playground?
These are butt masks.  And that’s the gentle way to put it 🙂  They are face masks, created for your rear end. And just like face masks, they have a variety of types for toning, hydrating, firming, illuminating…. because I (Sarah) DEFINITELY want my butt to be illuminated! 😉  But hey – to each his own, right?
 
What part of the body do you wish had a mask made for it?
