Hi friends! Happy Friday to y’all! Here we are, another Friday and the first of May. What happened to April? #likewedontknow The weeks are just clicking by. We found out our shelter in place has been extended until the end of this month. Another WHOLE month. It’s almost impossible to wrap my brain around the fact that we’ve been home for 7 weeks straight. I told Kent, I guess we could go somewhere that’s opening up. HA! I mean, he can work “from home” anywhere.
If there’s one thing for sure that’s a positive about this entire pandemic, it’s that we’ve had some extended time with Katie at home. And how often does a mama get to witness her college girl take her final college exam? We officially have a college graduate, and I’m here to tell you that was a
F A S T four years. I am however so sad we aren’t in Nashville this weekend watching her walk across that stage and cheer for her. These kids have worked so hard, and they deserve to be celebrated. Of course we’re going to celebrate her here Saturday night with a yummy dinner and dessert of her choosing. This summer when we go to Nashville, we’ll go out for an official celebration with Benny & Erin and some friends.
Every time I shave my legs, I think about how much I love this little ‘foot shelf’, and wish I’d found it 7 years ago when we moved in this house. It is absolutely the handiest little gadget, and if you don’t have a shelf to rest your foot on when your shaving, I beg you, buy one of these!
As long as we’re talking about shaving legs, let’s talk Billie razors. Now that I’ve been using it for a while I can officially say, I really love this razor. Somehow it just feels like it would be much harder to cut myself, it shaves close, the blades last a long time, and the little magnetic do-dad that comes with it, is genius.
Last Friday Katie and I went to WalMart for some supplies and came home with a pool. Y’all, I can’t help but laugh every time I think about it. We spent almost all of our time outside last weekend. It was hot, and just sitting with your feet in made it much more pleasant. I’m thinking it just might be the best $13 I’ve ever spent. LOL I’m really lobbying for a pool at our next house, and this may have been just the thing to convince Kent. He enjoyed sitting out there as much as we did.
One day when I was out walking, I came across this on the sidewalk. I thought it was just so precious. Sidewalk chalk art has been super popular during this quarantine time. When my kids were little, Target had the coolest sidewalk chalk holders in the Dollar Spot. I’m pretty sure they are out in my garage somewhere…at least I hope they are.
These are similar to what we had. I think they are so clever. They help keep kids hands a little cleaner, and Miss OCD here is all about that. HA!
Having this silly girl home means daily laughter. She is a H O O T! We have the best time together, and the three of us also have a lot of fun. We are always goofing off. She comes up with the funniest stuff. Now let me say, that I am in no way opposed to Botox, but the fact that she comes up with stuff like this cracks me up.
Target has bathing suits on sale for 30% off through tomorrow. They have a lot of cute ones, and they are good quality. I’ve got one tankini top that has got to be 4-5 years old, and it has held up so well. I just ordered a few separates to try.

Last week I named my air fryer one of my favorites. Katie had seen a recipe for coconut chicken tenders she was dying to try, so we made them Wednesday night and used the air fryer. They were soooo good. The chicken was tender and juicy and the coating was nice and crispy. Last night I warmed the leftovers up in the air fryer to crisp them back up, and it worked like a charm.
Okay gang, that’s about it for today. If you are in a state that is starting to ease back into real life, be smart, keep your distance, wash your hands and be safe.
