It’s almost March! And all God’s children said, “Amen!”
We are joining the blogs of Momfessionals, A Little Bit of Everything, and Grace and Love to share some favorites with you.
Kat is on spring break next week and heading off to Ireland tomorrow, and I’ll probably go to Publix. Same thing.
*My first favorite is my favorite kind of television: watching crazy people. If you need a new Netflix show, I recommend Love is Blind. Warning: You’ll get sucked in like a Hoover. It’s basically a marriage experiment. Men and women “meet” each other through a wall and see if they fall in love that way. Then pretty much the next week they get married. Totally normal.
*I picked up this bag of granola at Costco the other day, and it stares at me every time I go in the kitchen. It’s not something I’d consume a large amount of in one sitting, but when I need something sweet, it does the job. I think I like it so much because it kind of tastes like Rice Krispie Treats cereal…not the regular Rice Krispies…the one with even more sugar. I’m embarrassed to tell you I have eaten an entire box of that cereal in one sitting. That must have been a bad time in my life.
*The older I get, the more things change. I am more cautious/nervous, more prone to motion sickness, and more intolerant of smells. I’m basically a lot of fun. Anyways, I can’t do perfumes anymore; they make me nauseated. A few years ago, one of my students’ moms forced me to ask her the ultimate creeper question. “You smell so good, why???” This amber oil is what she wore. It’s so light, so clean, and so heavenly. I realize it looks like something you’d purchase in one of the markets on Aladdin, but just trust that it’s good. I had to buy a new one this week, so I thought I’d share the beauty of this. You can just put it on your inner wrists and behind your ears like you would perfume. It also comes in a roller ball. You can also find it at Whole Foods, but they are often out of stock.
* My final favorite is these two. What’s better than a clean baby? Two clean babies. (with combovers)
*One of my students recently went to Ecuador with his family. I know. Private school, am I right? But seriously, his grandfather is a missionary, and they went as a family to assess the area for ministry opportunities. He brought me back this bracelet. It is so different from anything I have or wear, but I’ve worn it a couple of times and always get compliments. And it’s a sweet reminder that my incessant laughter and singing in the classroom aren’t completely scarring him for life.
*I sent Caroline a text the other day while I was in Target and said, “How many Golden Girls shirts are too many Golden Girls shirts?” She responded, “Two.” Well, I own four. Two were gifts mind you, but two I purchased myself. I can’t help it. My love for those senior citizens runs deep. I recently watched the episode where Blanche sings, “I Want to be Loved by You” atop the piano at the Rusty Anchor and was laughing out loud. Hilarious.
*My last favorite this week is traveling with strangers. Not in a weird way. In a meet people from all over and see new and exciting places way. I did a trip through a touring company to England and Scotland two summers ago, and last summer, I went to Italy, Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. It’s the perfect way for me to travel. Literally everything is planned. I pay and show up, and I’ve met some wonderful people who I am still in contact with. That being said, I hop on a plane tomorrow to Ireland. To quote the Perfect Strangers theme, “Sometimes you just get a feeling like you need some kind of change. No matter what the odds are this time, nothing’s gonna stand in my way. It’s my life and my dream, and nothing’s gonna stop me now.” (not even coronavirus) #cousinLarryAppleton
