Happy Friday! Oh my gosh – I am exhausted! Our students had a four day weekend last weekend but Friday was a teacher work day (which can be more exhausting) and Monday was Parent Teacher Conference day. We hit the ground running Tuesday and it is a long stretch until Spring Break. I know that all sounds whiney, but this is a tough time of year to keep students engaged. Luckily I have saved two personal days for sometime this spring when I need them and I have some fun things planned in my classes. I am still holding out for ONE glorious snow day. Please?
I am linking up today with Andrea, etc. so go right here!
First off, I really like this new hand wash. It was recommended by my friend Kristin of Stuff, Things, Etc. I love the smell and I think it is free of all those nasty chemicals we do not want. I found it at Target.
Where have roasted sweet potatoes been all my life? I peeled two then put in the microwave for 2 minutes and then after they cooled I was able to easily slice into cubes. I put a bit of EVOO and salt and pepper and roasted in the oven at 400 for about 30 minutes. So delicious! I have used these in a few meals this week. I love meal prep and this was great this week!
I was so happy last Saturday to find this at Total Wine thanks to my reader Nikki. It is so yummy!
I was having Mexican last week and wanted a margarita and brought out my favorite recipe. This is low cal and so good – recipe coming next week but you can see the ingredients below. I am spoiled now and cannot handle the super sweet artificial restaurant versions anymore.
Last weekend I treated myself to a chai latte from local Heine Brothers. They really make the best. Do you like chai lattes? They are so good!
How was your week? Any favorites to share with me? Any recommendations? I am happy to not have much on the calendar for this weekend. I plan to start spring cleaning, decluttering more, and organizing some things. I will have a renovation up date for you soon I hope. Spoiler… not much has happened since the last one!
