No.159: Five July Favorites (A Link-Up!)

This post contains affiliate links.

Welcome to the Five Favorites linkup!  Congratulations to Shelly, with June's winning post: Five Favorites.  There's no Prize Pack this month, but will hopefully return in August!


1 // STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE BISCUITS
Nothing says summer like strawberry shortcake!  This recipe is delicious and so easy - maybe too easy, hah!  We've made it a handful of times this summer and it's always a hit.

2 // THE LIBRARY EXTENSION PLUG-IN FOR CHROME
I just discovered this little plug-in and it's been so helpful already!  You can install it on Chrome in a matter of minutes.  Then, if you go on a website like Goodreads or Amazon, it will automatically search your local library to see if they have a copy, both in physical form or ebook.  I can already tell it will help reduce my impulse book shopping.

3 // ITALIAN SANDWICHES FROM ANANIA'S
If you ever find yourself in Portland, Maine, be sure to stop into Anania's and get an Italian sandwich.  Ham, American cheese, diced onions, green peppers, pickles, black olives, salt, pepper and oil on a hero roll.  It's so simple, but hands down one of my favorite foods on Earth!  I had one on my trip a few weeks ago and it hit the spot.  Be sure to get a whoopie pie while you're there too.  

4 // HASHING OUT MY MOM STYLE BLOG
Lisa started a new blog called Hashing Out My Mom Style and I love it!  Her thoughts on outfits have helped me look critically at my own wardrobe, while also inspiring me to start a list of pieces I'd like to find. 

5 // A NEW POPCORN MAKER
After four years and hundreds of uses, our old popcorn maker was starting to be a hazard.  The top piece was cracked in about six places and hot oil shot out from a chip in the bottom.  Nothing like a little first degree burn before snack time!  We finally replaced it with this one and what an improvement.  Definitely a worthwhile investment for our family.

I can't wait to hear about what you're loving this month!  Here's what to do:
1. Write a blog post sharing about five of your favorite things.  You could also share a photo on Instagram too! (hashtag is #bwffivefavorites)  It can have a theme (ie: five of your favorite slow cooker recipes) or just a mishmash like I usually do.
2. Please link back to this post so your readers know where to find the Five Favorites hub (posts not mentioning "Five Favorites" or not linking back to this post will be subject to removal).
3. Not mandatory, but feel free to visit some of the other posts in the link-up!  Sharing and/or leaving a comment is even better.
4. Make sure to add a link to your specific post or Instagram picture, not just your blog address.
Thanks for linking up!

    1. Yay! I especially love it when I'm reading book reviews online - I always have Overdrive open on my phone and I add to my list when the computer shows a copy at my library. SO helpful!
