Happy April Fool’s Day! Do you play tricks on people today? When we are in school on April Fool’s, I announce a quiz and then say “April Fool’s!” When I was a kid we would put salt in the sugar bowl for my Dad’s coffee. My boys and I have done a few things to hub through the years, too. Maybe I will get them to come up with a plan for when he gets home from work tonight!
Friday after school I had some shopping and cleaning to do. I had to go to Costco to get some of the things I needed for the weekend- one of which was a quick meal for Friday night. I was happy to see that they now have a Cobb salad! It fed all of us two times this weekend. I also bought the Asian chicken wraps. I unwrapped mine and put it in a low carb wrap that is only one WW point! Score! I mentioned last week that I’m doing WW online.
My cousin A from Michigan was stopping to spend a night on her way to the beach. She and her son and husband arrived around 8 p.m. and stayed until Saturday morning. It was a nice little visit! We forgot to take a picture Friday night, so this was Saturday before they left and before I had fixed myself up!
The fact that we were having guests prompted us to do our cleaning Thursday night and Friday, so the rest of Saturday was free for me. Hub left town to help his parents and I had the day to myself while the boys entertained themselves. I had been wanting to visit The Prickly Pear. If you are local, you should check it out. I have been many times but their merchandise for spring is out now. A friend of mine owns it.
It’s in the cutest little yellow house. They carry accessories, clothing, decor, beach towels and totes, and housewares.
They now carry this wonderful cologne that my family discovered in a boutique in Michigan. I bought it for my sister a couple of birthdays ago because she loved it. Have you heard of this? It is a nice clean smell for summer in my opinion.
She has the cutest earrings – most are under $12.
I decided on these.
I returned home with Subway for lunch for the boys and for me (I got the veggie sub toasted with no dressings and it was 5 WW points) and rested for a bit before it was time to take one son to the movies. After dropping him off, I visited World Market. They have unique accessories.
I decided to get these for only $5! I thought they looked like Uncommon James, which is the line by Kristin Cavallari.
I wanted to mention that this would be a great place for unique gifts and even Easter basket content.
After World Market, I headed to Target and wanted to let you know they still have the $1 faux succulents in cracked Easter eggs!
I picked son up from movies and we ate dinner at home and watched a couple of shows.
Sunday morning was chilly! But, it was sunny and beautiful. I hope the cold doesn’t affect my new beautiful blooms. My Dad loved spring after a long winter and always talked about the world coming alive again.
Sunday was a big March Madness basketball game (our team lost), grocery shopping, a trip to Barnes and Noble with a son, some magazine reading, dinner, and a little more t.v.
What did you do this weekend? This is our Spring Break week and I have a long list of to do’s for today! One son has a 4 hour theater practice – yes, they keep on practicing! I will be back tomorrow with a couple of easy drink recipes!
