It’s finally the weekend! The week after a vacation always seems to draaaaag by so slowly and this week was no exception. The worst part? Spinning class! It was B-R-U-T-A-L! Luckily we don’t have many plans this weekend so I have some time to work on a couple of fun projects that I have been dying to start.
The first project is gardening! I will not pretend for one second that I have a green thumb but I am anxious to learn more about gardening. I am going to attempt an herb garden, a few select vegetables, and some pretty flowers. Everything has to be in pots because we do not have a yard but I’ve heard that gardening in pots can be very successful. I hope so!
The second project I am working on is a chalkboard. Maybe I haven’t shared this little random fact about myself but, I LOVE writing on a chalkboard. Always have. I used to pray so hard that the teacher would call on me to come write on the board during school. Especially when we practiced cursive handwriting. Oh I just wanted her to see how much I had practiced those cursive letters! I had a chalkboard easel in my room growing up and I played school with it everyday. Then, when I worked at Starbucks, I used to spend hours decorating the chalkboards for the display every six weeks. I loved it. So, it’s only natural that I would want a chalkboard for my own house. I’m not sure how I’m going to use it yet but I know I will come up with something!
Have a great weekend everyone! See you Monday!

Tuesday- Leftover Easter ham became ham & pimento cheese stromboli.
Wednesday- If you are watching baseball this weekend, you will DEFINITELY want to twist up these pretzel dogs for the game!
