Happy Friday!!! How was your week? Most of my favorites this week are things that involved my family and fun times and that is always a good thing.
On Monday we celebrated my nephew Caleb. It was his nineteenth birthday so we went to our local Mexican Restaurant where we love to celebrate. We had such a good time and the food was great!!! I bought Caleb a leather hat and belt when I was In Dahlonega Ga last week at the Gold Rush Festival. I think he liked it. It’s hard to tell with that age group.
Last week a sweet co-worker went to Pigeon Forge and brought me back this homemade lye soap. I knew there were a lot of uses for lye soap but he also brought a bit of literature about it and I found it very interesting. I think I’ll do a post on it next week. I love this little tin it is in. I have it on the sink in my downstairs bathroom.
And then another co-worker brought me home made apple butter. I can’t wait to spread this on some warm biscuits. It was just a week for sweet and thoughtful little gifts. I just love that it makes my whole day.
You probably know about this coffee at McDonalds. This is a small iced coffee, and I should have taken a picture before I drank half of it but it was just so yummy I couldn’t help it. The small is only 140 calories and $1.39 or something like that. I got a large in Knoxville last week, and I got the pumpkin spice this time, and it was only $1.99. I did find the pumpkin spice to almost be too sweet.
I just got this book in the mail. If you haven’t read Colleen Hoover you should give her a try. I read, It Ends With Us back in the summer. I loved it I could hardly put it down. This book just came out and it is the sequel to It Ends With Us. I know it seems a little funny because the title sounds like it should be the second book but if you read it you will understand. You definitely need to read It Ends With Us first. I just started this one and I can’t wait to get into it.
What have you enjoyed this week?
I have a big family reunion tomorrow and I have six loaves of bread rising in the kitchen. I am also doing my baked beans that my family loves. I can’t wait to see everyone. Have a wonderful weekend.
Love your day your way!!!!!
