Good morning, friends!
This post is being brought to you from sunny, warm, and beautiful Pennsylvania. I don’t have the chance to say that very often around here because if it’s not cold and snowy, it seems to be warm and rainy. We are in the middle of an absolutely gorgeous weekend and I am taking full advantage of it! Go grab your coffee and pastry and let’s get to chatting!
** I am blogging from my porch.
That time has come (for now at least) when I can be outside with my winter coat and boots. Or at least a sweatshirt with three shirts underneath. it’s supposed to be 79 degrees today and was already in the mid-60s when I woke up. That only called for one thing. Coffee and blogging on the back porch.
** A mother-daughter day happened yesterday.
The hubs has had a crazy weekend at work and has been only stopping at home for a few hours to sleep and my dad was gone for the weekend so my mom and I figured it would be the perfect opportunity for us to spend our Saturday together. I taught the early Jazzercise class yesterday and then we went to breakfast, visited with my grandparents, went to church, and then went out for dinner. I love days with my mom and cherish every one that I get!
** Speaking of grandparents…going to their house is the best.
While visiting yesterday, I got to sit at their kitchen table, drink coffee, eat homemade poppy seed rolls, and work on crosswords from the newspaper. There are many days when my mom and I go over to their house to help work on the yard or something like that…but, then, we have the days when it’s all about relaxing and enjoying each other. Yesterday was one of those days.
** I have given up on buying dog beds for my pups.
Friday, after work, I stopped at TJMaxx to see what I could waste money on and decided to go with a dog bed. We still have to crate our Rosie when we are gone because she enjoys chewing on our dining room chairs. Not good. We usually just have some blankets in her crate for her to cozy up on but I thought I would try again with a bed (she has ripped up any we have tried before). I got home, showed her the bed, put it in her crate, and then went to meet friends for dinner. I got home and Rosie was sitting in piles of orthopedic foam. Major, major fail.
** Jelly Belly jelly beans are my obsession.
I do not like regular jelly beans. I never have. Okay. That’s a lie. I like red (not cinnamon) ones. But that’s it. That is until, one Christmas, my aunt bought me a box of Jelly Belly beans. Oh my word…the flavors. The popcorn, the cantaloupe, the juicy pear, and the toasted marshmallow. I can’t get enough of them and my grandma had a huge container of them yesterday in preparation for Easter. Honestly…going to my grandparents’ house is the best!!
Have a beautiful Sunday! I plan on opening wide the windows and doing some spring cleaning inside and then moving outside to get some cleaning done in the sun. I can’t wait!
Thanks for chatting!
