Just Some Ordinary Days

Hi everyone!  I haven't posted since the last of April. I kept meaning to sit down and write something, but when I did have a few moments, I would sit and think...then think some more...then think a little more. And then I decided that I had nothing to write about! Everything I thought about posting seemed a little ordinary and plain, but I guess life is made up of quite a few ordinary and plain days. I always like reading about someone's daily life and so I hope you feel the same!

Can I share a few photos along with a few comments?

I ordered a new "Happy" text necklace from Bauble Bar. I really liked the photo of it online, but in person, it was a bit "big" and I felt conspicuous. I also told my husband, "What if I wear a necklace that says "happy" and my face doesn't match up with it?" Sounds funny, but I was serious. I didn't want to be a bad advertisement. So, I sent it back. If they come out with a smaller version, or one that says, 'Happy Most of the Time", I'll be all over that one.

I DID receive this necklace as a gift. Isn't it BEAUTIFUL?!! It is from Stella and Dot and is the Kimberly necklace. I love it and wear it every chance I get! I was so touched to receive it.

My daughter made this raspberry chocolate cake for my husband's 49th birthday a couple of weeks ago. It was a recipe from Giada. She did a fantastic job! Isn't it pretty?

My husband and I spent most of this day cleaning out the garage. I posted several things on facebook such as a baby swing, bike trailer, and lots of home school books.

Everything is pretty much taken and it feels so good to have things cleaned out.  My son told me to post this photo of him on facebook to see if anyone wanted to take him!

And this has nothing to do with anything, but I have always loved Kathie Lee's hair. Don't you?

I also love Amy Adam's hair color.

I would love to color my hair in this reddish color of these two ladies (I think), but I'm not sure I'm brave enough. But I've been thinking about it.

Well, that's about it. We only have about 2 weeks of school left and I am looking forward to a break. As for tomorrow, my husband has another few days off, and we will be clearing out our storage room. I can see all my holiday stuff in there while I'm working, so it is kind of my happy place.

I hope your week is going well! Sending lots of love to everyone reading:) - Kathy

P.S. Thanks, Stacey, a blogger friend from Poofing the Pillows, for encouraging me today!

  1. Hi there! I definitely vote for the reddish tint in your hair. Why? Because I've wanted to do it too and don't have the nerve. :)

    I love the S&D necklace you received - how sweet of someone who must love you. Your son is adorable and looks about the same age as my youngest - he's 22.

    That cake is amazing! Bet it's gone now. :)

    You are right, life is made of ordinary, wonderful, and sometimes challenging days. It's never boring though.

    1. I'll keep you posted! Let me know if you do your hair:)
      I love the necklace so much and am reminded of a friend's kindness every time I wear it.
      Thanks for your nudge, Stacey! Have a blessed day!

  2. Love the necklace. However you want your hair it will be lovely just as you are such a gracious woman

  3. You are such a charming and lovely lady. Love the necklace and I agree, I really like Kathy's hair too. Thanks so much for the visit and for the link. I enjoyed your visit.

    1. Thank you Marty and also for hosting your weekly link up. You are a jewel❤
