It’s Friday and it’s time to link up here for Friday Favorites! Today is our last day for seniors, but underclassmen still have until next Thursday. It seemed like it would never get here, but now things are happening quickly.
Monday afternoon I made plans to have two friends over for happy hour since I didn’t think I had to work the following day – Election Day. It turned out I did, but I kept my plans. I met the two ladies when our kids were in elementary school; we met because all of our kids walked and we met up at a certain door for “walkers”. They both have older kids than mine and younger kids. This year I have had the pleasure of teaching their younger kids who are seniors. So crazy!
I didn’t expect this at all; they gifted me some wine and a…
It was so sweet.
I voted in our primary at the end of my work day. It was cute that my kids walked to vote together when they finished work and our polling place was their middle school. Fun fact: it is also the middle school where actress Jennifer Lawrence attended.
Erica, Elizabeth and I had lunch out on a gorgeous patio that day, too. We shared some fries and…
I had some delicious thai chicken wraps.
That night, Tom and I had dinner on another patio with his boss and his boss’ wife. We went to the Cuban place called Havana Rumba.
I had a sangria, but then chose a salad with chicken and so did Tom. Everything there is delicious!
This is really yummy! I have been mixing this brown sugar cinnamon syrup with my…
fat free half and half for my coffee. I froth the two items up a bit before adding them to my coffee.
This popped up in my Facebook memories. We got Ernie in March and this was our first summer with him, I think. He soon became too big for this chair.
I told you all I didn’t know where to buy my towels for the new bathroom and some readers suggested Costco. Of course! I can’t believe I didn’t think of that! These towels are Charisma brand and super soft. I bought two bath sheets for $13 each, four bath towels for $7 each, and then two four packs of washclothes and handtowels. I decided to do a combo of grey and a grey-ish white. We have them rolled in this basket – photo was before I made them look nicer. We also ordered and received a hall runner rug for the hallway that matches the one in the bathroom. Safavieh Madison is the name and it came from Amazon for a really good price. The quality is really good! We now have five rugs by this brand.
We didn’t really have enough space for a towel bar, so we decided to do hooks. I think I like them better!
I posted about my summer reading list this week here and I made a trip to the library this week.
I saw this on the shelf and picked it up:
This was one that I requested:
Bring on the summer reading!
