Friday Favorites!

It's been a while since I've linked up with Andrea, Erika and Narci for Friday Favorites, so I'm extra excited to be here today!  I would also like to say that a Friday UNFAVORITE is that we are supposed to get 3-5 inches of snow today!  All the snow from the last storm hasn't even melted yet!  You know I love winter, but I am soo over it right now.  It's almost April and I am ready for spring!

But on to the favorites!

Number 1:  Girls weekend!
My friend Amy and I took a little trip to Newport, RI this past weekend.  We shopped, got massages, relaxed, and ate way too much delicious food.  It was perfect!   We also enjoyed "high tea" which is something I've always wanted to do!

Number 2: A good book (or 2)
I have read some good books this week!  I stayed up way too late finishing them and almost fell asleep at my desk, but it was worth it!  Tuesday night I read Everything We Keep and Wednesday it was After I Do.  When I get into a good book, I just can't put it down!

Number 3: This.  

Number 4:  And this.

Number 5: These Easy USA flip flops
Who doesn't like rhinestones and flowers?!  I think these are super cute!  If you love 'em too, check out the Amazon link RIGHT HERE.

Number 6:  A new wreath
I just love this Easter wreath I got from At Home.  It looks much better and brighter in person than it does in the picture.  And speaking of At Home, how have I lived without this store for 40 years??  And how did I not know they opened one 20 minutes from me??  

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my favorites of the week!  I hope your weekend is fabulous!   We've got soccer games, some home organization projects, and then a date night planned for my hubby's birthday...a couples massage and dinner at a Brazilian restaurant!

What's up Wednesday!

Linking with ShayShaeffer, and Mel today for What's up Wednesday!!

What I'm.....

Eating:  Do you love as much as I do?  This week I made the skillet chicken cordon bleu and OH MY it was delish!

Loving:  That Nick is reading in bed at night.  I love that my boy is finding joy in reading!

Dreading: The potential snow we may be getting on Friday.

Working On:  Hiring a cleaning person.  I’m pulling the trigger!  

Excited About:  Some fun girls’ nights in the works.  We’ve got a casino night planned, and a day trip to NYC to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

Reading:  Last night I read Everything We Keep and I LOVED it.  I’ve seen mixed seems like you either love it or hate it.  This book kept me interested right from the first sentence (which is a rarity)!  If you haven’t read it, I suggest you pick it up!
Next up on my list is After I Do.  Anyone read it??

Watching:  Well, we are all caught up on the Walking Dead, so now we are watching old Twin Peaks episodes in preparation for the re-boot coming out!  And next week, Better Call Saul starts back up.  Woo hoo!!

Doing this weekend:  Soccer games, then a night out with the hubby for his birthday.  We’re doing a couples’ massage and dinner at a Brazilian restaurant.

Looking forward to next month:  Easter!  And hopefully some warmer weather.  I know I said I love winter, but I am ready for it to be over!  No more snow please!!!

Royally Waiting!

Today I am super excited to be linking up Shelly, Holly and Katy for their ROYALLY WAITING link up!

 Currently, I am....

Waiting on:  My husband to paint the upstairs!  I’ve only been waiting 5 years, but he says he’s going to do it in the next couple of weeks (because I threatened to hire a painter).  We shall see!  I’m getting real tired of my master bedroom being boring white.

Thinking about:  All the snow out there.  Holy cow.  We got about 18 inches yesterday, but that’s nothing compared to what my parents got... over 30 inches!!  That’s a lot of snow, people!
Also... about hiring a cleaner.  Once the upstairs finally gets painted, I’m doing it.  I just can’t keep up with it.  I work full time, have 2 young kids, and much of our weekends are taken up with sports.  There just isn’t enough time in the day for me to do that deep cleaning that needs to get done.  NOW... to find someone reliable and trustworthy!

Going:  To Rhode Island next weekend with my girlfriend!  No hubbys, no kids.  Just relaxation, massages, eating, drinking, and shopping!

Reading:  Getting ready to read And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer.  Just gotta get my tissues ready!

Planning:  An overnight trip for our anniversary in May.  15 years!!

Wearing:  Boots and scarves!!  It’s been cold here!

Loving:  The extra hour of daylight in the evening!  Not loving:  Getting up an hour earlier than I was a week ago! 

Drinking:  Water.  Yup, I’m trying.  Also Starbucks Chai Tea Latte.

Watching:  Walking Dead!  We are finally current and now I am sad there are no more episodes to binge watch!  We actually have to WAIT until Sunday for a new episode! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Come back soon!
