The last quote is from the masterful mind behind The Conversation on Lifetime. It is an incredible show & I urge you to check it out! The first season wrapped last night, but I have high hopes for many more following!

From my memo to myself about what to title this post (yes, that really happened), it seems that “I promise” was the common phrase between M & me last Friday. I also wrote something about Tarzan, so I think we watched it that day. I love that movie!

My dad’s shirt from This Shirt Helps finally arrived! He liked it! I didn’t get a chance to explain how the whole process worked, but the company allows you to choose wear the donation part of your purchase goes – there are different causes your purchase supports. I chose (for him) the education of a child. I thought it would mean the most to him.

I found a recipe for a smoothie on pinterest! (Shocking!) I loved it! I had it every morning this week. Next week, I think I’m going to try it with a twist – instead of papaya, I’m going to use mango. And might I just warn you, be careful to use the exact amount of ginger that is called for. Someone (me) might have used a lot more than what was called for & suffered a bit from it. I also discovered that the blender was actually faulty. I wasn’t aware of this for approximately 40 minutes – the time it took me to prep everything for the smoothie. I learned to use our juicer instead the next day! Another drink I tried tonight? Skinnygirl cocktails – specifically White Cranberry Cosmo. I heard of the brand a while ago, but did a little research last week and decided to try one. It was pretty nice! But it’s definitely going to last me a long long time.

I pulled a large stack of books for my 10 year old neighbor (well, the neighbor’s granddaughter). It was pretty neat to see all the books I’ve kept over the years. I’m such a nerd, but I love it! I wouldn’t change a thing about all the time I spent wandering in someone else’s shoes. The characters were my escape, my companions, my teachers, my friends.

I am thankful for: my education.




One of the awesome shot glasses I got for my 21st! Thanks, N!
