Who wants to see a lot of food pictures? I am linking up today with Heather, Tanya, and many more here for Hello Monday!
Quitting time on Friday afternoon called for sitting in the sun, reading, and this! The Black Trulys are truly (see what I did?) the best hard seltzers I have tried. If you don’t think you like hard seltzers, give these a try. They have more flavor in my opinion. They are light and refreshing! I got a pack in my last Kroger order.
Friday nights mean Tom comes home from work tired. He will go out, but I know he is ready to stay home, so we usually go out on Saturday night. So, I made fish tacos and we watched some t.v.
Long story, but we have to work on a Saturday or Sunday to set up our classrooms if we want to get paid. So, I got myself up and out the door early Saturday morning and now I am happy with my room arrangement.
Students can only sit in the desks facing the front of the room. I need to do some more posters and arrange some books.
We have new stickers on the floor.
After I worked, Tom and I went to Drake’s for a late lunch. I tried to get a bit into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit with this necklace I bought at a consignment store years ago for like $6 and a white blouse from last year.
I had a sour beer. I am getting into these.
I had a wonderful salad with blue cheese, apples, bagel chips, sunflower seeds and a couple of other things.
We split nachos and…
Tom had sushi.
The college kids came home for dinner! Even though I would have preferred not to cook I know they prefer home cooking after eating their college cafeteria food.
They love when I make a big salad and homemade honey mustard dressing. I will try to put it on the blog soon. It’s really easy!
And, I made balsamic chicken. I think I will do that recipe here soon, too. It’s a new favorite.
We tried Felicity and they don’t think it’s funny enough and they want funny. I agree.
Sunday we had to spring forward and I finally got out around noon and did Dollar Tree, a return to Loft (I had done an online order), and Clothes Mentor consignment store. The Easter stuff is really good at Dollar Tree.
This probably deserves a separate post, but look at these either new or only worn a couple of times shoes I found. All were $20 or under.
These are Tom’s brand below:
That was just in my size alone. You can really find some great things if you are willing to go the consignment route.
I came away with one thing – this kimono. I really liked the colors and I have at least two things that I can wear it with. I always ask myself that.
I saw this photo of Chicago on social media. I love that they do this every year for St. Patrick’s Day. Do you have any plans? I am going to try to make an Irish meal just for Tom and I, but I might decide it’s too much work!
I drove by a couple of Irish restaurants on Saturday afternoon and their patios were packed with people. Not good for Covid, but you can tell people are just ready to celebrate anything and everything.
Sunday afternoon I was super lazy. I read a bit and lounged around after running my errands. The weather turned rainy and cold so I didn’t get any outside time.
The boys were still with us for Sunday dinner and Jack requested Chinese food. We always order one sesame chicken and one orange chicken and the white rice that comes with and a side of fried rice and still have tons leftover.
It was a good weekend. How was yours? It’s hard to believe we are halfway through March. I still have two weeks left before our spring break. I’m really ready for a break from school! I want to have all of my plans ready to go for our first week of in person so I have my work cut out for me for the next two weeks.
I hope you had a fabulous weekend! What was the highlight?
Thanks for reading!
