Well that week went by fast. It was standardized testing week here and quite possibly everywhere as far as I know. Our wonderful third grade teacher organized a “feed the kids GOOD food initiative” and I ended up working at our school for three mornings cooking, setting up, tearing down and washing up. I really enjoyed myself, worked with great people and drank a LOT of coffee. There is a certain pleasure garnered from hard work. Next year I plan to cook and feed the entire school on testing days a good happy start to the day and hot snack midway through can make even mandated tests not suck so bad.

Thrifting was a no this week, oh I went but found NOthing worth buying, hurry up yard sale season. Ha but first it has to stop snowing. Good grief! it’s April 6th and more snow is falling as I type this. All week, gorgeous sunny warm enough to be out in sweater only and now snow. I had to turn the furnace back on it got so cold in here.

I quasi hosted a baby shower this week too. One of my dear friends is having her fifth baby and her FIRST boy. It was a beautiful day filled with friends and food and fun, perfect! I say quasi because I only did the food, while another friend of my did the decorations and yet another friend hosted it. It was perfect though because we ALL had a small bit to do and it came together perfectly.

So of course me being ME I gave her TWO vintage hand knit sweaters I bought at an Estate Sale. They are adorable and will fit him next year when he is toddling around. I can not wait to meet this little soul. Um and shower him in vintage adorableness.
