Loving: My husband and I are in a fancy-schmany supper club with 4 other couples. Each couple hosts once a year and they cook a gourmet meal with everything from scratch. We all dress to the nines, send invitations and each meal has a secret theme. We have hosted 4 times, this past Saturday being our 4th. Our theme was Clue- like the board game. Each course was inspired by one of the suspects. We have planned for this for MONTHS and the evening went PERFECT! We transformed our backyard into a study…
Colonel Mustard: pastrami on rye with 2 kinds of mustard, picked onions and radish from our garden. We made the pastrami, the bread AND the mustard! Reverend Green: English pea soup with local ricotta and proscuitto. Mrs. Peacock: Beet dough ravioli, stuffed with peas and goat cheese. With a homemade mint and walnut pesto. Mr. White: Steamed halibut on a ginger and lemongrass Thai broth.
Thinking: We have these monthly reading campaigns at my school 3 times a year. Each grade level competes for the most AR points. We win a golden book trophy and some sort of party. We won the 2nd campaign this school year in February with 400+ AR points. This month my kids were committed to doubling our last score and they did it! They read a combined 972 AR points in just the month of May! 3 kids read 100 points on their own!!! Can’t wait to celebrate with my class on their hard work!!!
Wanting: Sushi… I just don’t want to think about cooking for a little while!
Needing: a few Father’s Day gifts…. I am kind of stumped on this one and am clinging to the hopes of finding something on Amazon Prime!
Summer Lovin’: Our July is stacked with trips. We are road tripping to Oregon with my brother & SIL, his triplets and our 2 littles. Our dad lives there and my sister just had her first baby. We are staying a little over a week and it is always a fun time! Then there is Vegas for the TpT Conference! It’s my first time going, I am nervous but excited. (Leave a comment if you are going too!). Finally, we have a family beach house that I cannot wait for! I love beach living!
I can’t wait to see what you all currently have going on. Be sure to check out how you can help Farley raise money for her beloved local town Weatherley!
