Happy Friday! Linking up with Andrea etc. at Momfessionals today!
Here are my faves from the week – my last week of summer!
I made my instant coffee/Premier vanilla protein shake in my resusable cup several times this week! And, I bought the Skinny Pop white cheddar in individual bags and that helped with portion control! Try the Skinny Pop White Cheddar if you haven’t already!
This Truly lemon is really good! Truly is my favorite brand of spiked seltzers which seem to be all the rage right now. I love the rose, too. I do think you have to like sparkling water to like these, though, FYI.
I finished this book over the weekend but it was a favorite!
I finished this book on Monday and it was so cute! If I’m into a book I read super fast!
Remember when I told you about the Bath and Body sun washed citrus wallflower plug in that is a dupe for Capri Blue Volcano scent? I bought myself a car one, too. Sun washed citrus is everywhere! I’m putting it into my classroom before it’s socially acceptable to start using fall scents, too.
I started this book at my husband’s suggestion. It is so funny and so poignant. If you are a dog lover or if you want to be as happy as you possibly can, pick this up. This book reminds me of why I love these Friday posts – I collect things all week long that make me smile or make my life more enriched. I truly believe in getting excited about the little things in life. I try really hard not to be too negative or cynical.
I picked this up to take on the boat and they are so good. I can see these as part of a dessert tray. They have just the perfect amount of lemon.
I took just one son who wanted/needed a haircut to his hair place this week. (In 16 years this was the first time they both didn’t get a hair cut at the same time!) The hair place used to have Jolly Ranchers on the counter and maybe they’ve had this type before – but this was my Dad’s mint of choice – the Lifesavers Wint-o-green. He kept a bowl in his basement and my boys would stuff their pockets with them when they were little and they called them “Grandpa Mints”. This simple bowl of mints at the hair place made me smile. I’m getting more to the stage of smiling rather than tearing up when these things occur.
I decided to get my second dip nail manicure ever this week. I went with a pink because most of my beginning of school clothes are bright and summery. I’m hoping this will last me 3-4 weeks and save me some time at this busy time of year!
How was your week? What made you smile?
See you back here on Monday I hope!
