Let’s pretend that today is Friday, shall we? A much nicer way to begin the week, if you ask me. I didn’t have the chance to publish this at the tail end of last week because I was in a meeting with coworkers and then went to see my mom for an early Mother’s Day, but here we are. It’s raining in New Jersey for the 143rd day in a row. Is this what Seattle feels like? Good grief.
At the end of each week I like to share gratitude/moments that made me smile with my girls Lindsey and Beth. I hope you’ll join us and link your posts below! If you bring cookies, all is forgiven if you show up late. Right? Here’s my happy:
Not just one, but two lunches with friends!
Related: finding a new lake in the area with picnic benches and sweeping water views
Sharing a vegan brownie with my bestie
Getting to see my momma and gifting her a pair of headphones so she can work out at the gym. She’s in her 70s and says she reads the text on the screen on the elliptical machine so hopefully she’ll put these to good use
Game of Thrones. HOLY!!!! I think last night’s episode was the most dramatic in TV history and I am NOT including spoilers, but I have much to say so reach out to me if you’d like to discuss!
Also in TV news, Bryan and I discovered a new Netflix show called Dead to Me and I’m kind of obsessed. It’s with Christina Applegate and is a total riot
Finding a cute pair of shoes for Berlin and getting to use all of my DSW points; also! Picked up a Free People dress at Macy’s, originally $150 (geez, why are their clothes so $??) on sale and used coupons to bring the price down to $66 (these are not my new shoes, and I don’t think they really GO with the dress but I’ve been trying to make them happen for ages. They are from Christian Siriano, maybe with jeans they’d be cute??)
Bringing Rico back to the shelter. I never would have thought that I’d add this to my gratitude list because I miss the little stinker so much, but he was given a warm greeting and seemed happy to be there. The little punk didn’t even turn around to say goodbye! LOL, anyway, knowing he’s in good hands makes me feel better
How are you feeling today, and how was the weekend/Mother’s Day? Let me know in the comments, and hope everyone has a beautiful week ahead!
