Friday Favorites (February 25, 2022)


Hi Friends and Happy Friday!  My kids have a snow day today BUT it is their first remote learning day so not as fun as a typical snow day but hey...they are headed into Winter Break so they really can't complain!


We are hopefully headed to Aruba on Monday...fingers crossed our C tests are negative and we can upload all of our paperwork properly!  Since I will be away, Sarah will be holding down the fort for Hello Monday!  So if you blog, make sure you visit Sarah and link up!


But enough of the housekeeping items, let's get to some faves from this week...



 Have you tried them yet?  I really don't need glasses but I do find that first thing in the morning, when doing work or reading my devotionals, the words see dark and sometimes fuzzy...well these little magnetic gems have made a difference!  They make the words more clear and more bright FTW.  They have so many cute styles.  Check them out HERE



 Mondays with Pidge


I get to pick Pidge up from school on Mondays and get her changed and bring her to dance class...this week, after I dropped her off, she was waiting for her class to begin and the studio posted this...we were cracking up....she always squishes my heart!




 Tuesdays in the Office


Always a privilege and joy with my Janie....she surprised me with some darling treats for Aruba...always so thoughtful










 Fave Meal Of The Week

Fluffernutter Protein Shake from Fuel Good Windham- Nuff Said




Axe Throwing with My Book Club

Yup!  I was scared but I powered through and it ended up being a blast- Shannon always has great ideas!  She hosted and decided to bring us on this adventure on Wednesday night- so glad I participated...felt like a BadAxx ;)


That's a wrap...short and sweet...I will be on vaca next week but promise to be back the following week!

Monthly Musings: All About Spring Fashion Edition


Hi Friends!  Welcome!  Patty and I are so glad you stopped by!  Hope you will blog today, answer our questions below and link back up to us...c'mon...it'll be fun!

We are talking all things Spring Fashion!



Here we go....

1. Favorite Spring Pieces In Your Wardrobe?

I would have to say my white jeans and anything Lilly of course!

2. Favorite Colors To Wear In Spring?

Pastels...Vibrant Lily Colors...Coral and Navy Blue top my list!




3. How do you transition your wardrobe from Winter to Spring


I make my jackets light...I dress in layers...and most importantly, I add color back into the rotation



4. Favorite Accessories for Spring?


More jewelry- a lighter colored handbag- sandals and flip flops! 

5. Do you change handbags for Spring?

Yes...use more color and then my big bag gets changed from the Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM in the monogram to the Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM Damier Azur



6. Best tips for off season storage?

I am the wrong person to answer this- I need to see everything so that means all of my clothes are split between two closets and several drawers- can't wait to get some tips in this area!



7. Best tips for editing your wardrobe?

I like to sell older pieces (especially Lilly Pulitzer pieces) on Ebay or Poshmark.  That is the way I justify a new purchase.  I have had the most success on Ebay though :)


8. What color just says Spring to you?




9. Best basic Spring transition outfit?

White Jeans- Black Top- Black Sandals

What I'm Reminiscing About


Road trips of past...as we were making our trek to Long Island...I had time to think and reminisce and remember the wonderful road trips my parents took us on :)



What I'm Loving


Wordle...there I said it...ha!



 What We've Been Up To


Mama and her besties did not let the cancellation of the NH Winter Wine Festival let them down- they did it up with an awesome sushi dinner to ignore such a catastrophe ;)


 We have been spending time with the cutest couple! :)


 Daddy played at The Winter Fest at Fody's and had a blast

 We lived to tell about the biggest snowstorm of the year here


 There were plenty of YAGP rehearsals for Miss Diana

 and Eva lost her first tooth- YEAH!  She was soooo happy!!

 Mama attended Clare's presentation and oh did it speak to her!


 Diana and Mama's Snapchat streak is still going strong ;)


and our snuggle bunny is just the cutest as always!


We loved seeing Caden in Derryfield's production of Mamma Mia!

and enjoyed the YAGP Dress Rehearsal and Photo Shoot

Diana and her dance pals had a great time competing at YAGP Boston/Worcester!

We exchanged our family Valentines and treats!

and Diana placed 1st in the Windham PTA Reflections Competition for Dance Choreography- next stop States!

Mama enjoyed a Valentine themed wine group at Lisa's

and our little fam enjoyed our road trip adventure to Long Island for Diana's first film job!

What I'm Dreading

Nothing at the moment!

What I'm Working On

Faith- Health- Wealth...pretty much sums it up!



What I'm Excited About


Heading (hopefully) to Aruba next week- all so nerve-wracking with COVID testing and such but keeping the faith!




 What I'm Watching/Reading


Wish I could tell you we watched the Olympics but the only portion I caught was the mens' figure skating- missed the female competition all together and pretty much just saw the highlights on the evening news.


 In January and February I binged Sex And The City - all seasons plus the two movies- I decided not to watch AJLT again...for now anyway...will come back to it since the season just wrapped up!

and enjoying the final season of This Is Us

 I am giving "Married At First Sight" Boston a shot because the funny conversations have started back up in my office and I am intrigued...love laughing and just so curious


and my two books for February were

The Hotel by Pamela Kelly

I loved her "Restaurant Series" especially since one of the sisters was a Recruiter and any story set on Nantucket always pulls me in.  Cass encouraged me to read this one and then get into her Beach Plum Cove Series which I am planning to do next!


Summary:  The Whitley is Nantucket's most exclusive waterfront hotel - a sprawling collection of pristine white cottages and an elegant main building on a long stretch of private white sandy beach. It's a family owned business - brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, all work there in various capacities.

Paula is happy in her back-office accounting position. But changes are in store when her grandfather promotes her and fires her cousin - who then blames Paula.

Meanwhile, a blond romantic-comedy superstar is hiding out at the hotel for a few months. She meets Paula's brother Nick, a chef - who has no idea who she is - and she likes it that way.

Paula's grandfather hires a consultant to help her settle into her new role. But she isn't sure what to think of David, who grew up on Nantucket but now lives in Manhattan.

He's brilliant and will be assessing Paula's suitability for the role. He's also home for another reason, a difficult family issue that makes Manhattan seem very far away.

and November 9 by Colleen Hoover

I always love her novels- nice mix of drama, love, suspense and a great story!

Summary: Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.

Can Ben’s relationship with Fallon—and simultaneously his novel—be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?


 What I'm Listening To


Well when Diana is in the car, we are listening to the Charlie Brown soundtrack and always "her song" on repeat so she can rehearse.  She is playing Sally in the upcoming WMS production in April and her big song is "My New Philosophy" 



Pidge and Daddy got me hooked on a Pit Bull song during our drive to NY- I Feel Good

and we also listened to lots of Taylor Swift...until Daddy couldn't take it anymore...ha!

What I'm Wearing

For Work...

for Working Out (yup I love cobalt blue!)

and for the weekends...over the winter...lots of black and lots of layers


What I'm Doing This Weekend


COVID Testing- Finishing our packing and chilling! 




What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month

The girls doing their Performance Awards for a Judge from AAB, Time in Boston spent with the Fab Four and celebrating my mom's and my father in law's birthdays!




What Else Is New?

I think I covered it all!



What's up with YOU?
