I don’t usually post on the weekend, but a few fun things are on my mind that I thought you might enjoy…
Need something to watch on television?
Try Derry Girls on Netflix. It takes place in Northern Ireland in the 1990s. I went to an all-girls Catholic High School and can relate to so many things. It’s cute and funny. My husband liked it, too and we can’t wait for Season Two. Erin, the girl in the middle reminds me of me in high school.
Speaking of high school… When we moved from Paris, France to Newport Beach, California we enrolled our daughter, Alie in a new school where she didn’t know anyone. She decided to try out for the Freshman cheerleading team (with no previous training). You know how you worry about your kids…
A Laker cheerleader was working out at my gym and I asked her if I could pay her to give Alie a lesson (I explained the whole story). She said yes and was not even expensive! Tommy and his friend, Todd (in third grade at the time and big Laker fans) watched them practice from afar. Alie made the team and even took gymnastics lessons and eventually became a varsity cheerleader.
Latest Reads on Kindle/Books
Some recent books I enjoyed:
Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Currently reading based on a lot of your recommendations:
The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
And this just came highly recommended and I’ve purchased it. But it’s about Auschwitz again and I may need something lighter (please leave any recommendations in the comments).
The Choice: Embrace the Possible by Dr. Edith Eger
I put away the heavier pillow covers in favor of just lighter ones and this new Walter G linen pillow in the color “guava.”
Soapy Scrub Brush
This little scrub brush stays in soapy water so that it’s always ready to wash things like good knives that don’t go in the dishwasher. I sent one to my mom, daughter, and son (for a little surprise in the mail).
Fresh Lavender Bundles
Trader Joe’s has inexpensive, lavender right now that’s making our dining room smell lovely.
Have a happy weekend and give the ones you love a big hug.
