Friday Ramblings: April Edition

Happy April, and happy theory.  I don't think I'm alone in screaming "Go away winter.  You're not wanted here anymore".  Sigh.

I'm off to visit college boy for mom's weekend, and then in a month he'll be home for the summer.  Two years have gone by so fast!  Now, let's ramble.

💋 Do you have a Sonic where you live?  If so, what are your thoughts?  One recently opened in my town and people have lost. their. minds.  Literally, a line around the block the entire time they're open.  The boys talked me into going with them at midnight during Thomas' spring break.  I couldn't bring myself to eat anything, but I have to admit that their drink selection is impressive.  And colorful.

💋 One of my very favorite things about living here is the blossoming of the cherry trees.  Every spring it seems like they bloom overnight into the prettiest pink explosion.  The petals only last a few weeks or so, before a good wind blows them all away.

💋 Reading:  Due to the aforementioned never ending winter, I read three books this month.  All different, but all worth reading.  A psychological thriller with a very satisfying ending, a strange love story, and WWII historical fiction.

💋 Watching:  A Wrinkle In Time.  Sadly, it's a thumbs down from me.  I adored the book and wanted to love the movie, but it just didn't translate well.  The costumes and sets were visually stunning though.  

Santa Clarita Diet (on Netflix).  We binge watched this over two weekends and it's SO good.  Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant (yes, please) are perfect, the writing is witty, and there are lots of fun cameos.  It's pretty gory though, so don't watch while you're eating.  Unless you're like my husband, and absolutely nothing turns your stomach.

💋  These amazing ladies from The Forever Fierce Revolution recently shot a video in collaboration with Chico's for their "Bolder" campaign.  Our goal is to get to one million views, so I'm asking for your help.  Check out the video on You Tube, and then share it on your social media and tag some friends with #foreverfierce #howboldareyou and #ageisjustanumber.  I would be so grateful!  These women are strong, kind, and beautiful inside and out, and I'm proud to call them friends.

Since I can't top that, I'll stop rambling.  Happy weekend, friends!


  1. Confession: I've never eaten at a Sonic. Have so much FUN at moms weekend!!!!! I know you will! xo HUGS and safe travels!

  2. I"m a little bummed about Wrinkle in, I haven't seen it, but it was on my list. I really wanted to read the book again, because it's been so long. Maybe now I'll wait to see it when it comes out "on video"---how do you say that nowadays (when it's streamed???---gosh I'm so old..ha ha)

  3. Girl!!! SONIC!! We LIVE at Sonic!! It's the bomb dot com here in the south! Everyone loves their ice!!

  4. We have Sonic here and I have gotten for my boys but I have never eaten it myself! Have a wonderful weekend with your college boy!!

  5. I like Sonic a lot but I'm not obsessed like some people. I feel the same thing about Chick-fil-a. I mean, it's good, but it's still fast food. What's the hype??

  6. I don't know what this Sonic is. Hope you have a great weekend in that town with that boy!

  7. We have a sonic and I’ve only eaten there once. It’s a little too greasy for me so not my favorite, but I love how people get excited about something new! Winter can go away now, like so done! Hopefully we’re all getting some warmth soon!


  8. Sonic is a Texas tradition. I rarely go a day that I don't see someone in the office with a Sonic cup. My goodness the trees are beautiful. Yay for the Fierce 50!

  9. Timothy Olyphant is sort of delicious, isn't he? And spring isn't here yet!?

    Ok, so Sonic. I always joke that I see their viral commercials wherever I live, but have never lived near a Sonic! Then finally I found one in CT and I went. I don't eat fast food so I only tried some sort of tater tots thing and an ice cream thing. They were ok!

  10. I grew up with a cherry tree in my front yard. The blooms are just as fun as he cherries. I don’t live next to a Sonic but my Mom does, it looks delicious, but not diet friendly. I love that you went to Sonic at midnight with the boys, oh the memories. Can you believe I’ve never read a wrinkle in time, but now I have to read it before I see the movie. Sorry to hear you didn’t like it. I've never heard of the forever fierce revolution but I'll check it out.
