Happy Friday! That is of course, my first favorite. I am linking up with Andrea, etc. here.
This week gave us a real taste of spring. I opened my sun roof on a couple of the days. I was parked when I took this, just so you know. The blue skies and fluffy clouds made me so happy!
Sunday night I went out to dinner with 3 college friends. I ordered a horrible sangria for $11 that tasted like Welch’s grape juice. That part was not a favorite but catching up with friends was so nice. I don’t usually go out on a Sunday and I will admit that I started getting nervous as the clock headed toward my bedtime!
I love my Trader Joe’s frozen rice and this is really good, too. The box comes with two packets that you microwave. It is a great short cut if you also like quinoa.
It’s time to start thinking about St. Patrick’s Day. I love this day because it’s my sister’s birthday, I am part Irish, and it’s just fun! This is what I usually make for dinner. I love celebrating the little holidays, too, even though I have teens now. They still enjoy my festivities I think. Sausage, onions, pretzel rolls with green butter, green mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, and a little cup of Rolos and Skittles make for an easy weeknight dinner. I have turned the milk green, too! I have also done Lucky Charms and green milk for breakfast.
I know I owe you a renovation update. The truth is that we spent all of January waiting for the inspector and we couldn’t get our permit for the patio until that happened. Finally in February those two pieces came together. My husband has worked the last two weekends and has built this all by himself. I now can use the back door! It’s the little things! The patio is far from done – we need to finish securing the planks, stain the wood, do the railings, and then furnish it but it is definitely a favorite.
If you read my “Getting Ready for Spring” post Wednesday, you saw that I ordered this Knox Rose for Target top. It is better than I thought it would be. The back is a knit material and the front is so cute. I am seriously thinking about getting a second one because sometimes white clothing only lasts one season. Here it is if you are interested.
I ordered on Target.com and then did the in store pick up. They included the yummiest red gummy bears. I wish I could buy these!
So, what were your favorites this week?
What are you up to this weekend?
I am excited about the time change and I really need a pedicure. I know that we will see some cold weather before it’s all said and done but my flip flops are calling to me.
Thanks so much for reading!
