So I completely forgot about today being St. Patrick's Day. Who does that? What kind of blogger am I?! I'm seriously the worst when it comes to remembering/celebrating non-Christmas or birthday occasions...no themed outfits, no hand-crafted decorations, no specially Pinterested desserts. I'm basically the black sheep of blogland, and clearly I need to get my act together. With the next holiday in T minus a week and a half, I'm kinda running out of time here! No pressure.
I do have some favorites to tell you about from this last week so that's something, right?
1. Today was easily my favorite part of the week. The last 5 or 6 days have been kind of non-stop between work, school and family stuff so it felt really good to have a whole day of quality time with my crazy girl. We took advantage of the gorgeous spring weather and spent the afternoon playing at the "big park," capping off our outing with rainbow sprinkled frozen yogurt.
2. These nail polishes from Julep! Dianna is literally my perfect shade of blue, and Margot is an gorgeous gold metallic with just the right amount of sparkle. These colors take me right to my happy place. Now, if I could only stop stressing out about math and quit biting my nails (I know, gross) I could actually wear them instead of just admiring them in their pretty packages.
3. Starburst Jellybeans. I need Easter to be over. Like, yesterday. I'm doing my best not to spend our lifesavings in the candy aisle of Target, but the struggle is real. All the best sugary treats go on sale this time of year, and that list includes Starburst Jellybeans. I don't even like jelly beans, but these are next level. *Nom nom*
4. Criminal. My latest in a string of podcast obsessions. Loooooove. I'm also about to check out a podcast called What Should I Read Next, because my inner book nerd is a little giddy looking at the list of books they discuss. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for that to be a good one.
5. Be The Match. Awhile back a friend of mine posted a link on Facebook to Be The Match, the National Marrow Donor Program. I had never heard about it before, but I happened to be on duty working a very slow shift at the time so I clicked over to the website. I learned that the organization has facilitated over 74,000 bone marrow transplants through a huge registry of volunteers, and that donating marrow isn't at all the huge ordeal you might think! It only took a few minutes to fill out the application and within a couple days I had received a kit of painless cheek swabs with a postage paid return envelope. If you haven't signed up, I'd totally encourage you to do it! You might get an amazing opportunity to save a life someday. :-)
And last but not least, I figured I should leave you with a laugh. Happy Friday!!
