Happy Valentines Day to all!  It is a teacher workday for me – no students.  I get to go in a little later and dress more casually.  My boys are enjoying a four day weekend but they are quite busy with theatre and academic team competitions and some last minute scholarships applications.  I am linking up today with Andrea, etc. so go right here!  What are your plans?  I think I will make a charcuterie board and a fun dinner but I hope that I will get to go out tomorrow night.  I need to figure that out or ask my husband to figure it out!  

Here are some favorites to share with you this week!  

My reader J recommended that I read grocery diaries and I am hooked!  Have you read these?  You can get meal ideas and it is fascinating to read about different budgets and how they eat as they chronicle a week in their grocery life!  Is it weird that this is interesting to me?  


I will need a new nail polish color soon.  I am thinking a light shade of blue like this?  


I am excited to wear these palazzo pants that I bought about a month ago.  I specifically thought they would be good for March and St. Patricks Day.  I have only bought a few things in 2020 and I am quite proud of myself. I am planning a post this week on 2020 clothing purchases. 

I rarely drink soft drinks but I really like this.  I use it with bourbon, too.  It is even better that way – just kidding! 

I want to find this cider this weekend called Grand Mimosa by a brewery in Wisconsin.  I had it at Hop Cat last weekend  and it was so good. 

My sweet boy is allowed on one piece of furniture upstairs and one downstairs.  How can we say no to this face.  He is very dramatic!  Hub is practicing guitar often in the living room so thus his guitars next to the chair. 

I got to have some fun during the week this week.  Wednesday night I had dinner with my friend Beth at Ciao.  

It was a rainy night and I enjoyed the view out of the window next to our table. 

What were your favorites this week?  Hope it was a good one!

  1. I have to check out Kitchen Diaries, I love seeing and hearing what others do – does that make me a voyeur? Ha! I think diet ginger ale sounds perfect with bourbon!
    I have made too many purchases so far in 2020 so I am contemplating a spending freeze.
    Have a great weekend Amy!

    1. Let me know what you think of the grocery diaries. I am that way, too – maybe that is why I like reality tv. I think I have only bought 6 things but I will count this weekend and take photos. I typically get really excited about new spring styles in Feb. and March! Happy Valentines Day!


  2. Love the Grand Mimosa. It’s made by Ciderboys and I’m pretty sure you can find it at Total Wine…I think that’s where I got it last time. Their La Vida Sangria is good too! I discovered it one night when 3rd Turn had it on their rotation.

  3. I’ve been reading the grocery diaries too and checking out all the recipes!
    The cider looks delicious. I checked out their website and looks like several nearby stores carry ciderboys so I’m adding that to my shopping list. Have a nice weekend!

    1. Aren’t they interesting? The cider tastes so much like a mimosa! Also my reader said the same brewery makes La Vida Sangria and Total Wine might have it! Have a great weekend!


  4. Love your dog (so cute!) and love the light blue nail color!
    Week was fine, we’re pushing through the last weeks of winter (well, “winter”…, but still, it’s cold enough!). Enjoy your Sunday!

    1. Thank you! We love him so much! It may be too early for the pale blue and I may go with a darker until then? We have had some true tastes of winter lately! Hope you are doing well! School is so busy right now!


      1. I love dogs, but I really cannot take the responsibility for a dog… You are so lucky to have that chocolate sweetie to cuddle with!
        Hm, you might be right about it being to early with light blue. How about blackish silverish? Or wait, is that what you’re wearing right now?!
        I’m fine thanks, but I have little time for indulgences like blog reading right now. But I have a sports break (Swedish thing) coming soon, yeah!

      2. It is a big responsibility! Blackish silver is a good idea. I may do a sparkle again. That’s how I am with blog reading now. I don’t have much time. You also may have noticed my blog posts are kind of short, too. I am happy you have a sports break coming up!
