Happy Monday! It was a great weekend with another quick road trip. My sister, daughter and I headed out Thursday afternoon to go visit my oldest daughter in her college town. We had great weather, beautiful sights, yummy food and good hugs :).
We saw a waterfall

This month's Let's Look link up is about our fridge and pantry. This is an interesting topic to see how we are all different!

Happy Monday friends!
Today, I am starting my week getting vaccinated. I was scheduled to go last Friday, but for a few reasons, I delayed it until today. It seems like another busy week ahead, but hoping it is a good one.
Once again, I am thankful to say we had a really good weekend. Friday night, I cooked dinner and we watched the most recent episode of "Rock the Block" from HGTV. It was low key, but good.
Saturday, we dropped off our daughter at an event and we drove to Birmingham. First stop for us was Buc-ess! We went to our first Buc-ees in Texas in early 2020. I was so excited to hear there was a new one, just a short 3 1/2 hours away :). This location outside of Birmingham just opened in January, so it was still pretty crowded and it was a Saturday when we visited. As crazy as it seemed when we walked inside, it was pretty efficient with lines. It was just crowded! This is a gas station (120 pumps!), but is also a gift store and has unique snacks and hot food, like Texas brisket. The first time I went to Buc-ees last year, I actually bought a wedding gift there. This time, I just bought some good 'ol brisket to eat, some snacks to share, and some souvenirs.
The main reason for the trip was to see Nate Bargazte perform. He is a comedian who has two Netflix specials and has been on a lot of the late night talk shows, like Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien. He is a comedian you can watch with your family. Let me just say, I laughed until I cried. He was so funny and we had front seats for the show.
We were back home at lunchtime Sunday to eat as a family, relax and then we went to our small groups with church.
Enjoy your day and week ahead!
Linking up with Tanya today!

Well, Friday is upon us and our first week in April is in the books. It has been a busy week. I have just a few favorites to share from the week.
I bought a set of 3 small, glass jars from the Target dollar spot and found some flowers at Hobby Lobby to arrange in them for a touch of spring. I found the bird decor on their Easter clearance.
I also found this bunny door hanger at Hobby Lobby in Easter clearance. I went Monday morning to see what goodies they had.

Good mid-week morning!
I am linking up with Anne for her monthly series, Currently. Here are the topics:
The first thing that came to mind for this is arranging paperwork that has been piling up, which needs to be filed. This is one of those little things I often put off doing.
I have also started arranging my summer wardrobe now that the temperatures may consistently stay above 70. My daughter helped me last season to arrange my clothes by color in a gradient style.
Of course, when I hear cravings, I think food! Most of my cravings for food are my sweet tooth favorites like chocolate, yogurt and strawberries.
I am also craving a sense of purpose as I plan for the next few years.
A lot of discussions around here are about college and vacations. I have a junior in high school and she is thinking of what to do and where to go for college. She definitely has ideas and interests, but the more we look into things, it seems the more overwhelming the process is.
So on a light note, we have been discussing upcoming vacation travel too!
I thoroughly enjoyed our time this past weekend with my family. Click here to see pictures that were posted on my blog Monday.
I am still in tax preparation mode, trying to get that complete sooner than later.
I am also preparing for lots of little things going on this week and some upcoming weekend trips.
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!

It has been a few weeks since I have posted 2 days in a row :). Yesterday, was all about our Easter weekened. Today, I am linking up with Tanya for Prime Purchases. I have a few items from the past 2 months to share, but not too much :).
I read about these somewhere in the blog world....sorry I don't remember where to give you credit! But, I ordered these and have been pleased. They do not feel plastic and while I love fresh flowers, these are a good substitute. The first picture is Amazon's photo and the second is mine.
