Happy Friday! It’s everyones’ favorite day in blogland – link up day with Andrea, etc. right here!
This was a good week and I think my word of the week would be grateful. I have felt grateful this week! It’s a good emotion.
Here are a few favorites and I would love to hear yours in the comments!
Favorite dish this week…
Egg Roll in a Bowl with ground turkey. I didn’t think I liked ground turkey but I do! I am trying to find more recipes with it. This was my lunch most days this week. Yes, I can eat the same thing for a week and then change it up the next!
Favorite snack this week…
I have mentioned these before, but do you like Sugar Smacks cereal? That is what these taste like!
Favorite splurge this week…
The lather on this shampoo is the thing of legends. I think I am using too much product and I probably only need a dime sized amount. I have never had a shampoo suds up like this does. I love it! I don’t notice much about the conditioner and I need a detangler I think. I also like its minimalist design.
Favorite surprise this week….
It snowed between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning! It melted very quickly!
Favorite meme of the week in regards to above weather…
Favorite Strange Moment I found myself having this week…
I hope you don’t think this is insensitive. I truly respect all religions and cultures. I just have a weird sense of humor and try to always look for the funny in life.
I went in to the library this week to pick up a request and browsed the new release section.
Did you know there is a category of books – Amish Romance?
I found myself skimming almost every page for a love scene because I had told Tom and Molly (my youngest sister) about this category of books a couple of years ago. Tom and Molly are two of the funniest people in my life and they carried on quoting what they thought would be an Amish love scene… “He slowly unbuttoned her 76 buttons…” Anyway… I guess you had to be there, but I was trying to find a love scene to take a photo of and send to them. Spoiler: I couldn’t find a love scene like that.
This is the book I had requested and I am anxious to learn about the Enneagram.
I love checking out cookbooks to see if I like them!
And this is the fun chick lit book I picked.
I am in a reading rut! I returned like four books I started and didn’t feel like finishing. Life is too short to stick with books you aren’t into – at least in my opinion.
Favorite self-care of the week…
I changed my periwinkle blue mani for this light highlighter coral color. This is a dip manicure and my last one lasted exactly 3 weeks.
Favorite canine of the week….
Ernie! We walked to the baseball field one day.
Favorite sandals I might buy….
I am still trying to be intentional. I love my Reef flip flop sandals that I bought – they look like a sandal but feel like a flip flop. These are Billabong and they are the same. I love this woven trend and think this would be a good way to incorporate it into my wardrobe.
Favorite much needed purchase…
I cannot find any of my lunch bags or soft sided coolers. I think I may have donated all of them because they were old and bad. I found this for $10 at Target and it is a little large for a lunch bag but will also serve as a cooler and will match my orange Bogg bag.
My kids are still at college, but Mason spent a few of the study days at home with me (they had four study days) and it was so nice. I went to school, of course, but hung out with him after school and in the evenings. Jack stayed at school to study. Their finals start today and they need to move out by next Thursday night. Mason already brought some things home to help the move out process. I am grateful they are close because it makes so many things easier, like moving out!
Their college gave them the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine Wednesday. They were having some side effects yesterday and I asked if they needed to come home and they both said they thought they would be fine to stay. I hate the timing of their second dose with finals starting, but it was also important to get it taken care of at college and on time.
So, that’s it for me!
I hope you have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for reading,
