Happy Friday! How has this week gone by so quickly? I am linking up today with Andrea, etc. here.
Here are some of my favorite things from the week! I hope you had many things that could be your favorites, too!
It was a favorite to get to see Mason as Torvald in A Doll’s House. I wish there weren’t masks and we didn’t have to watch it live streamed, but I guess it’s all o.k.
Jack played some guitar on the deck last weekend. He looks like he is in the zone!
I decided to do the deck in lemon decor and then got to enjoy it on two gorgeous weather days Monday and Tuesday!
I didn’t go too overboard. I would like to add a faux lemon tree where the palm tree-ish plant is. Then, I can move that down to the patio. I also have faux lemons that I need to find.
I kept the patio palm leaf decor from last year.
The only things new this year are the pillows on either side of the palm print.
I finished up Easter baskets. I have had these cute metal buckets since the boys were maybe 8? Do you buy new baskets every year? I think my kids have only been through a couple of baskets. One year I did sand pails because we were at the beach.
Because it was Spring Break, I treated myself to my first dip manicure in over a year. I had gotten a pedicure a couple of weeks ago so I didn’t need that. I found a pretty exact match to my toe color. I have been so tired of my manicures that I do at home only lasting for 2-3 days with all the dish washing I do. So, it was fun to get this done!
I had a fun lunch one day with my friend Elizabeth and discovered a delicious new beer – Rhinegeist Slamgria. It really tastes like sangria! It is from a brewery in Cincinnati and Elizabeth said you can buy it in the can at Total Wine. I need to do that and get some of the wonderful Grand MImosa by Ciderboys. Oh, and Stiegl Radler. I guess I need to put this errand on my list for today. Grand Mimosa really tastes like a mimosa and Stiegl Radler was the grapefruit beer I was introduced to in Germany. I was telling my friend about Slamgria and she asked why I don’t just have a sangria. Sometimes you just want a beer, right?
We split this pretzel – well we didn’t make it very far into it…
Elizabeth got a burger and mac and cheese
and I got chicken sliders with truffle fries.
We went to World of Beer. It is a chain, I think.
Both of my kids got their first vaccine! I was so grateful that their college held a vaccination clinic. And, Tom got his second this week, too! I told them to send me a photo and I got one!
I forgot to mention that my new deck and patio decor came from World Market and Hobby Lobby. While in Hobby Lobby, I saw these rubber faux Birkenstock sandals for $5 and got my sister and I both a pair.
Tom got to take off work yesterday and today! We went to lunch at Gracious Plenty.
Tom got a meatloaf sandwich that he loves and a salad and I got
benedictine – a Kentucky cucumber cream cheese spread that is dyed green. It often comes with bacon and lettuce.
And, a crazy thing happened on April Fool’s Day this week – it snowed! You can’t really see the snow in this photo so you will just have to believe me!
I also had a fun happy hour with my friend Beth at a new Irish pub called The Raven. We chose to sit in this cute little area. I took this photo off of the website because mine wasn’t good.
We both ordered Irish whiskey cocktails.
and we had some curry fries.
And, my last favorite was my sister’s visit!
What was the highlight of your week?
Thanks for reading!
