The 5 Spot


I was shopping this weekend and I thought to myself… what’s up with never talking about the stuff on which I spend my own money? I just wanna give shout-outs and mentions, not reviews…. so I came up with a fun way to do it.

Introducing The 5 Spot, because I love all the things!

I’m gonna share the things I eat, think about, read, watch, wear, shop for, and/or obsess over. Basically, anything goes.


Cinnamon Lava Balls

I stumbled across these when wandering through Ollie’s Bargain Outlet a couple of weeks ago. They were priced for about $1.50 a bag, and since I’m nuts about cinnamon candy… SOLD.

I bought a bag or several.

Ten to be exact, ok?

What? They’re chewy little fireballs of deliciousness, and they look darn cute in my candy machine.

So far I have them in brown and orange, but I use these all day long every single day which leads me to think I need every color. Yes, I do.

Kellogg’s Cinnamon Jacks

These are new to me but I’m friends with Apple Jacks, so when I saw their pal, Cinnamon, I introduced myself right quick. They’re light, puffy fun-shaped cinnamon crunchies. Love. Oh so much love.

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

Round these parts, Carolina-style BBQ is popular but I’m a sloppy, sweet and tangy sauce lover from way back, so Dickey’s Barbecue Pit serves it up to me just right. I always get the same thing – the pulled pork barbecue sandwich and barbecue beans, and I douse it in their spicy BBQ sauce. Mmmmmm

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

This is what I’m reading at the moment. Remember when Amazon was doing their deal of the day specials? I picked this up for less than $5, and I’m really liking it so far.

I have oodles of things to share on The 5 Spot, so I hope this will be fun! If nothing else, it’s a nice change of pace for me! :)
