Here are some things that I would call favorites this week…
I received In Style and Real Simple in the mail and I am saving them for this weekend. A fresh magazine to get me pumped for the next month is still a favorite.
My most recent home glitter mani with OPI Strawberry Margarita (two coats) and OPI Cheers to the New Year (two coats) with an Orly top coat is another favorite.
Erica has used Thrive Causemetics mascara and she asked if I wanted to order one, too, to save money on shipping. It is amazing! I really like it! Now I am curious about their other products.
Tuesday was really nice and we walked after school. Our new track is really cushioney and it was nice to debrief our day while getting some exercise.
Tom liked my Spanish cauliflower rice! I added some tomato paste, garlic, lime juice, and cilantro to the frozen rice and then made burrito bowls one night for dinner.
Erica made the stuffed acorn squash again!
I made Shay’s margarita soup one night and Tom had a grilled cheese with his. You all need to make this! I only put in a tiny bit of Sprite because I didn’t have diet and didn’t want too much sugar. The creamed corn and the lime juice make this a little different than your average tortilla soup. Also, I cooked my chicken in the crockpot with chicken broth to create a rotisserie chicken and it was amazing. Oh, I also added chicken broth to the soup. I can never leave a recipe alone! Erica and I had it for lunch the next day, too, and it is very low in WW points.
Mason sent me this one day and it warmed my heart! I really try not to “bug” them or text them too much. It is special when they text me first!
Did you read my Spring Trends post? Y’all, I could not help it! Crochet is one of the trends I said I wanted to try. This is on its way to me! It is Target, so not too expensive, but pretty expensive for Target. And, it is a juniors brand so I ordered it in the biggest size possible.
I will let you know what I think and if I decide to keep it. I know it’s controversial and looks like grandma’s throw. But, I dress for me!
I am working on a small Valentine’s bag for Jack and Mason.
I found these at Dollar Tree – bandaids and handwarmers for walking to class.
They love sour candy.
I will add some more things once I get out to a store.
I also am thinking of ways to show love this month. I made this little spread for Tom when he got home from work. He loves this candy and I picked it up.
Yesterday we had a virtual day. I actually like having one every now and then. It is really nice not to get out in the winter and not to have to make the day up at the end of the year.
I enjoyed my Valentine’s mantel while teaching from home.
We were at home because of an impending ice storm so I ran into the wine shop and picked up Chalkboard wine for after school – not during!
I need show and movie recommendations!
I recommend Younger, Promised Land, and The Woman in the House across the Street from the Girls in the Window. All three of those helped entertain me last week! I am still watching Younger and anxiously awaiting a new episode of Promised Land.
What were your favorites this week? I hope you had many!
