How was your weekend? I hope it was great! I am linking up with the ladies here for Hello Monday…
Thursday evening I tried another Impress brand press on mani. The hardest part is finding which press on fits which of your nails correctly. You want to go a little smaller and never bigger than your actual nail. Then you press them on, cut and file, and you are done. Still going strong as I type this on Sunday evening…
I was told to use dental floss for removal when they start to lift. We shall see… I think the removal is what kept me from trying another set after the last one. Has anyone tried these?
Erica made our lunch on Friday and it was delish! It was a Greek bowl with ground turkey ,quinoa, and all the toppings.
Our school has been having food trucks come since last year for lunch on Fridays, but it doesn’t really work for the teachers. We only have 20 minutes for lunch so by the time we wait in line, order, and then get the food, we must go back and teach. I think the administration, counselors, office staff, etc. are enjoying it, though! Ha!
The three of us had seriously not seen each other since early June at the middle one’s daughter’s graduation party. These are my college besties and I’ve seen the one on the left a bunch, but the middle one has had all the stuff with her first graduating from high school and heading to college. We met at 4:00 and did some boutique shopping with to go frozen sangrias in hand – yum!
Then we got to go margaritas!
The bathroom wallpaper called for a selfie!
And, finally, we enjoyed dinner on a patio…
with some goat cheese and garlic…
and I got a roasted vegetable sandwich and “fries”. We all loved our food.
We talked non-stop and still could have talked more. But, we said good-bye around 9:00. It was so good to catch up!
Saturday morning I broke out the pumpkin spice skinny syrup – yes I did!
And, I made mini pumpkin chocolate chip muffins!
I also prepped breakfast burritos for this week. I microwave a baked potato and then dice it, add bacon bits, a bit of cheese, and a bit of scrambled egg.
I wanted to shorten my nice, but faux pearls so that was one of my Saturday morning errand stops. They are so nice and so helpful. I love this local business. They said they could have them in a week and they are one of the only ones who still do this – have you seen anyone hand tie a string of pearls? I learned something new when the employee explained it to me and then I went home and watched a YouTube video!
I did an Amazon return and a Nordstrom return at Nordstrom Rack and then I relaxed.
And, so did Ernie. He gets himself in some funny positions!
Then, I did all the laundry and cleaning, washed and changed sheets and tried to help pack for college. We loaded up a car in preparation for Sunday morning move in.
Tom and I met our friends at a concert – the last one of the season…
and ate food truck food. I got a Venezuelan chicken bowl.
I also tried a strawberry beer. I would get it again!
It was a lovely evening and we had a great time!
Sunday morning I had my coffee on the patio.
Then, I made egg roll in a bowl for our Monday lunch.
It actually worked out really nicely that one kid had a 10 am Sunday move in and the other has a 1 pm Monday move in. They are both in the same dorm this year, but different floors. We all helped with the move in today and then they will help each other again tomorrow while Tom and I are working. It’s a bit anticlimactic after freshman year for us. They are only 20 minutes away, so it’s all good. Plus, they just don’t want much help, nor do they want an over the top decorated room.
The dorm provided these nice bins to help:
Textbook pick up:
A couple of really, really nice things about our college:
Every dorm room has a microwave and a larger dorm fridge provided.
Textbooks are included in tuition.
I spent some time Sunday afternoon reading on the porch. The weather was weird. It would rain off and on and thunder and then get sunny.
My new chair:
My old anti-gravity chair died after 10 faithful years of service, so I replaced it this weekend on Amazon. Words cannot express how much I love this chair. Ha!
What was the highlight of your weekend?
