It's been a looooong week, and I've had it with the rain, my teeth, and brand new, malfunctioning computers. And scholarship applications, grumpy teenagers, and did I mention rain?
However, it's Friday, so I'm putting it all behind me and joining the ever lovely Carrie to share some goodness.
-- I think I mentioned last month that my husband doesn't "believe" in Valentine's Day. Yet every single year, a lovely bouquet of flowers arrives in my kitchen around the beginning of March. Must be our own romantic holiday. I should come up with a name.
-- As soon as my shopping ban is over, I'm buying a pair of lace up flats. I've been seeing them everywhere, and I think they're so lovely for spring. I really like this Steve Madden pair, but I'm open to suggestions.
-- Speaking of shoes, I saw this lovely story on my local news channel. A litter crew working along a busy freeway found 100 pairs of new shoes, still in the boxes. Instead of pitching them, they did a little research and brought them to Mary's Place, a great Seattle organization that provides emergency help for homeless women and children.
-- Thanks to a recommendation from Lisa at The Sequinist, I've been using this Ren Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial for a month. I use it every three days, and it's so easy to apply and rinse off after a minute. My skin has never felt so lovely, and I swear it looks brighter and less wrinkly. I'm probably imagining that last part, but my skin does feel wonderful!
--St. Patrick's Day is next week, and while we're not Irish, we usually celebrate with corned beef and cabbage. And this year I will also be making these delicious looking Little Irish Girl cookies, thanks to the lovely Andrea. Not only are they so pretty, but the recipe includes Bailey's Coffee Creamer for some minty goodness.
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
