Have you been watching Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” this week?
He’s killing it!
Some highlights, if you missed them:
Ok, this was the sign off from “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” but it combines Mr. Fallon with my favorite performing troupe of all time, The Muppets.
In need of a fresh white T for spring?
Consider this one from Gap, now on sale:
It’s really bright white with a flattering curved hem.
Here’s also a great list of the best white V-necks from one of my favorite blogs.
Earlier this week, I discovered that one of my friends – with whom I am incredibly connected via social media but am not fortunate enough to see often in RL (Real Life) – and I would be staying at the same hotel in Florida.
Except that we would miss each other’s trip by a single day.
I checked into the hotel tonight. She checked out yesterday.
Yet … when I arrived, the desk attendant said that there was a package waiting for me. Huh?
My kind friend had left a gift and note, waiting for my arrival!
Seriously, how awesome is that?
I think I am going to adopt this idea for when I know a friend or loved one has a special trip coming up. It’s not hard to get something sent to a hotel ahead of time; it just takes some forethought and organization.
And the payoff is so worth it! I can’t tell you how excited I was by this happy surprise.
A million thanks to you, L!
When first discovered IceMilk Aprons a few years ago, I immediately fell in love with their pretty, vintage-y designs.***
Since then the line has expanded to include table linens, totes and other goods.
The monogrammed aprons make a particularly great wedding shower gift.
For Mother’s Day you could also consider one of their adorable mother and daughter matching apron sets.
*** And yes, I recognize the irony of being attracted to olde tyme aprons when I do zero domestic chores in real life.
MGM (6) decorated a bag to hold his Valentine cards last week.
Please allow me to translate the above: Everything is Awesome!
My friend L.told me about this fun art project for kids.
While I’m definitely NOT artsy or crafty by any stretch of the imagination, this looks cool enough to try.
Here are some finished examples from around the web.
And here comes my favorite:
As I scrambled around this past week trying to keep my head just ever-so-slightly above water, I got an email from my daughter’s Junior Kindergarten teachers with an update of what the class is currently learning.
Here it is:
This month we will continue to focus on graphing and learning shape words. We will continue learning about Living and Non-Living Things.
During the week we will focus on the letter Qq. We will explore words beginning with “Q” as well as the “Q” sound. We will also be covering the number 16,color Hot Pink, and the parallelogram. Our sight word of the week is: It.
I immediately wished that this was my own To Do List, but then I realized that for Trixie, this is probably just as challenging as performing an extensive robotic myomectomy, which is a complex type of surgery that I do often.
It’s all relative and a good reminder of perspective.
My brother-in-law, K, has a really fascinating career that allows him to travel around the globe in high-profile settings. He has an enviable amount of frequent flyer miles, to say the least.
Right now he’s in Sochi, Russia. You may have heard about a series of sporting events going on there now.
He’s been sending a few pictures, including these of his daily walk to watch the sun rise over Black Sea. The cairn is his handiwork.
