Here is what my board looked like on Monday! Now subtract 5! Woohoo! I am linking up today with Andrea and Erika for a very random list of favorites. I’m grasping at straws here, people. I am dragging myself across the finish line that is called my 29th year! Ha!
Do seniors get out earlier where you are? Ours still technically have to show up each day, but they have a variety of activities including a graduation practice or two. They have a senior breakfast and senior walk, senior sunrise on the football field, senior movie – that kind of thing.
Erica and I have divided up the remaining lunches to continue doing our lunch meal prep. Here was Monday’s burrito bowls. Yum!
I started this book over the weekend but took a break – it is about a custody battle and surrogacy and it’s just kinda heavy.
I picked this up and am almost finished. It’s really cute chick lit and a break from my Colleen Hoover deep dive.
My sister is getting her kids a puppy named Ezra! He is a cavapoo and I am so excited for them! Look at his little tongue!
I really need to stop saying things on the blog that make me eat my words. I placed a Walmart.com order for three dresses. The quality is really good but the sizing runs big. I ordered this and am waiting to try it in a size down:
This one and am waiting to try it in a size down:
And this one:
Their website pictures are horrible, but they are giving Amazon a run for their money with how quickly they have arrived. They are way faster than Target, too. I will let you know which I end up keeping – if any. I should have ordered multiple sizes in my first order.
So fast and so communicative:
We are trying to grow some grass and my patio smells like a barnyard because of the straw…
I have been able to get outside and drink my morning coffee a couple of times and that is a sure sign that summer is coming.
Many years ago I asked myself the question: “What are my favorite things about being on vacation?” and the answer was that I really enjoy drinking my coffee on the patio of the vacation rental. I decided that was not something that should only be reserved for vacation and I started doing it more at home.
I am in love with this new to me Dr. Teal’s scent:
Thank you to Carolina Charm for the rec. I love Dr. Teal’s!
I made Amy McMuffins for breakfast meal prep to take a break from breakfast burritos:
Erica sent this and I loved it – especially because I am trying to get more into white wines.
I went to the Shakespeare at the Nature Center that one of my college kids has been working on as stage manager. It was unique because you started out here and then followed the actors into the woods.
But, I really just don’t enjoy Shakespeare and I ended up with two kids who are qute the fans!
OMG – you probably shouldn’t order these. I was unable to stop myself. They are so good. Have you tried them? I can’t find them in stores and had to order a small bag off of Amazon because I was curious.
I have been keeping my nails natural as much as I don’t like how they look. I ordered an old school nail buffer off of Amazon. I can tell my nails are getting stronger and more healthy.
I got a really funny gift from a student this week – it is a candle that says “Señora Scott’s Last Nerve – Oh look it’s on fire!” and the scent is margarita! How funny is that?
I hope I don’t act like they are on my last nerve!
I found a new favorite wine! It’s not too dry nor too sweet. Check this out! It is quite refreshing for this spring weather.
Whew! You just got a look inside my brain! It’s all over the place!
Before I go, can I complain about something? Isn’t it just par for the course that Mother’s Day is in the crazy month of May and Father’s Day is in one of the most relaxing months of the year -June? I thought about that this year and it made me mad!
Happy, happy Friday to you and thanks for reading!
