Oh man, what a week! See, I said it again! It’s time, though, for everyone’s favorite day of the week and favorite link up – Friday Favorites here with many other ladies.
First of all, it was great to feel much better this week, so that was a definite favorite. Did you read my Nurse Amy post? Check out the great suggestions in the comments, too. I can’t believe I forgot to mention the Starbuck’s Medicine Ball tea or the copycat version at home. Read Carolina Charm’s recipe here.
Another favorite was this ice cream that I have been meaning to look for at Target and finally did on Sunday. It is good! I won’t eat anything that tastes disgusting and this did not have a weird aftertaste or an artificial vibe at all. The whole thing is 370 calories and I was able to restrain myself and eat it in two settings, so not too bad for a much needed weeknight treat.
My car read 100 degrees after school on Tuesday and Wednesday. Adiós, summer! I will miss you, but not these temps. Honestly, this summer was not that hot here. I was just thinking about this the other day.
Wednesday was Spanish Club day! It was our first meeting of the year and we had a generous food donation from a local business, Ramiro’s Cantina. I have the daughter of the owner in my class and he offered; I was shocked by just how much he brought. We had chips, queso, salsa, quesadillas, and Jarritos Mexican soft drinks.
The kids’ eyes lit up when they saw the spread. It always warms my heart to see kids that love Spanish so much that they will stay after school to talk about it some more. I even had three senior girls that get to leave school early for co-op come back just for club.
I missed getting outside due the heat this week, but one night I waited until 7:30 and read a bit of my current book…
I am sucked in! Anyone read this?
The sky was lovely, too!
This is really good and fall like. I have had it for awhile and just got it out again now that fall is here!
I made it to the gym 2 times at 5:00 a.m. and walked the track with Erica one day after school. I still haven’t been 100% after being sick, so I will take that as an improvement.
I may not post as much next week and I may take a break from outfit photos because I have a little fall break. I wore this after I posted Fashion Files…
And, I wore this. This is my new TJ Maxx find from the weekend with old J.Jill crops and my cow loafers.
I had lots of after school stuff this week that were all school related. I had no fun happy hours!
One day was a professional development, but it was a good one!
Our hall bath is coming along…
And, yesterday the weather was gorgeous! Ernie and I walked between the tennis center and my school’s baseball field…
Ernie found a baseball!
After our walk, I had my own happy hour…
I made a new drink recently. One shot bourbon, a bit of Simply Peach, a bit of Crystal Light lemonade powder, a bit of lemon juice, ice, and Diet Canada Dry. Yum!
I think it was Jennifer who talked about “redneck caviar”? Well, Tom is hooked. Take a Ritz cracker, spread pimento cheese on top, and add a bit of bacon jam.
Ernie and I read some of The Paris Apartment last night, too.
I think this week I only went to work, the gym, and Kroger! Exciting, right?
What were your favorites this week?
