It feels good to be back home, but I am sad that Sarah had to head back to school. So fun to be able to spend the week with her! Upon my return, I discovered that spring has most definitely SPRUNG in Alexandria!
Beautiful blooming flowers everywhere…
With little bits of history tucked all over. We spent the afternoon walking the dogs around in the sunshine.
Final destination: the bookstore. I have had Nook envy ever since Casey bought one last fall. Today he was nice enough to treat me to my very own!
Saturday = no makeup.
My first download – a book many of you were nice enough to recommend. I found myself laughing out loud in Starbucks, frightening people who thought I was a makeup-less cackling maniac.
Favorite Starbucks drink – Tazo calm tea. Soothes the soul.
New foods introduced this week! Had the sudden feeling last night that an iced cold bowl of cereal sounded really really good. So naturally I went out and bought four boxes.
And ended up with an almond butter too, which I have literally bought only once in the past. It just sounded good this time!
Last but not least, real dairy milk – something I haven’t drank in probably over a year. I’ve been feeling a little worried recently that I haven’t been able to get in the good vitamins and minerals that I usually get from my diet (which now consists of ginger snaps and bagels). I decided to switch over to cow’s milk for a bit and get a little extra protein and calcium. I was excited to find this local organic milk in fun thick glass bottles!
Deeeeeeelicious! Finished the day with an amazing win by the Butler Bulldogs. Doesn’t get better than that! Today I am off to enjoy an afternoon outside at Mt. Vernon with friends! Happy Sunday!
