Happy Friday! How was your week? I’m linking up with Andrea, etc. for their weekly Friday link up where everyone shares their favorites from the week. It’s a fun and happy post and I always love reading others’ favorites. Go here to check out more posts and maybe find new blogs to follow. Also, if you are new here to my little ol’ blog, welcome and I hope you will become a regular reader!
So, my last teacher work day was this past Monday and then I did a half day workshop on Tuesday. Wednesday was my twin boys’ wisdom teeth surgery and yesterday they were still recovering. Whew! So, I’m still exhausted and I’m not in any sort of summer routine yet.
But, my first favorite is NOT SETTING AN ALARM!
My second favorite is the photo below. Hydrangeas are my favorite flower and this bush(?) came from my childhood home. My Dad dug it up and gave it to me when he and my mom moved from that home 13 years ago. This bush didn’t bloom last spring for some reason so I was really praying that it would bloom again this year and it is starting to! Because we lost my Dad in December it was really important to me to keep this baby alive and make sure it bloomed. Thank you, Dad!
My third favorite is summer reading! I have been in a real reading rut this year so far so it was so nice to pick up a book that I couldn’t put down. I read it in the first two days of summer.
My fourth favorite was this quote I saw on Instagram. Love it!
My fifth favorite was when I went into Target last weekend and used all of my willpower. This display was made for me. Fiesta themed plates, cups with Spanish related quotes, margarita mix, cactus lime juicers. Oh. my. gosh.
I also loved this mug that says “the boss” in Spanish.
They also had all kinds of cups you could slap a monogram sticker on. Visit Heather at My Glittery Heart to order monogram stickers. They just make everything better!
My sixth favorite was found at Trader Joe’s. I really like their beauty products. This hair serum helps with summer hair problems and was less than $4.
Have you heard that McDonald’s has four menu items right now from around the world? They have favorites from other countries. My student sent me this picture of his Stroopwaffel McFlurry from the Netherlands and he said it’s really good. So, this is bound to be my next favorite. He sent me this email to thank me because on the last day of our class, McD’s was running a promo where if you brought in a coin from any other country, you got one of the four items for that coin even if it was only worth 1 cent! I gave each student a coin so they could do it.
What are you up to this weekend? Tonight we are celebrating my niece’s high school graduation.
I’m hoping to finish this cute little book so I can move on to another good book from the library!
I’m hoping my boys can move on to solid foods! I have had these “cafeteria trays” for a long time and I think they are hilarious. I have had a dinner party with school food themed foods before.
We are also hoping to go see Men in Black and take the boat out this weekend.
