I went out to Happy Hour for the first time in more than a year!
Now that all of us in the family are fully vaccinated, we’re starting to feel a tiny bit more comfortable in doing a few more things out in the world, especially at places that still practice social distancing and mitgation measures.
I met up with my son at Costco after work, because he wanted to get some items to take in his lunch to work. Afterwards, we stopped into a nearby restaurant for Happy Hour. We were able to sit at a table that was nicely distanced from everyone else, and it wasn’t very busy anway, so it was wonderfully relaxing to just get to sit and chat with him for an hour or so. ❤️💕🍹
I’ve been working on some fun projects on my Cricuit that I can’t wait to show you guys. One is for the huge Spring-to-Summer Blog Tour that I’m participating in with 28 other bloggers, and the other is a fun little project for vacation. Stay tuned!
In Case You Missed It…
In honor of National Park’s Week, I shared some info (and asked for advice) about our upcoming road trip to several national parks this summer. Thanks so much to those of you who have already offered tips! Keep ’em coming!
I also shared a recipe for Chicago Pizza Pot Pies! It’s a fun twist on ordinary pizza.
These super easy 5-ingredient Dutch Letter Bars continue to be one of the most popular posts on my blog. This week, they were featured on Food Talk, and got more than 14,000 views and shares. They are almond-y, chewy, a little bit unique, and soooo easy.

Poking around in thrift stores, flea markets, and antique malls in one of my favorite things to do, so I was so excited to see all of the amazing posts y’all shared this week about your amazing thrift store finds, and the great upcycling projects that resulted from some of them!
