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.
The Weekly Features!
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!

Niky, glad you were able to enjoy that quiet happy hour! Happy Spring! And thank you for hosting. When I came to visit, I wasn’t expecting a party!
Thanks for stopping by, Jean! So happy you’re here to “party” with us!
Yay on being vaccinated and able to have some sort of normalcy. I am sure it must have been nice after a year of being locked up. Congratulations on being featured and those bars honestly so darn delicious! I can tell it only takes one bite to fall in love hard. I hope your week is going well so far and happy Wednesday!

That Happy Hour looks very amazing. Glad you are getting out and enjoying life. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.
How are things in California, Patrick? Starting to open up a bit more?
Things are starting to open up more and as of April 26th, I am back to in-person teaching. My district brought back the SDC (Special Day Class) classes and since I am a SDC teacher (emotionally disturbed) I am back. But since a small percentage of parents want to come back this school year, they combined schools and even though I am a middle school teacher we are at a high school in our own little area.
Wow, that sounds like a big adjustment! Wishing you the best as you take on this new challenge. It’s been quite a year for teachers.
Thank you so much for featuring my chalkboard, Niky, I really appreciate it. It was super easy to make and fun to decorate with throughout the year too. Thank you for hosting each week and giving us a fun place to hang out. Hugs and thank yous, CoCo
Wow, going out like that sounds amazing. How interesting it is to find the things we took for granted now feeling so special. Thanks for hosting, enjoy your week.
Happy hour with you son sounds like so much fun! Thanks so much for the party and I fully appreciate the Thrifting feature. Have a wonderful week. XO- MaryJo
How exciting – an actual Happy Hour OUT! And so nice to spend time with your son. Can’t wait to see your Cricut projects &/or make those yummy looking desserts! 🙂 Thanks as always for the great features! Happy Sunday!
Thanks for hosting, Niky.
Have a blessed week
so nice that you were able to go out and have time with your son. We’ve been out once for my birthday in March and it was well distanced. wow, I really enjoyed getting out for dinner. Thanks so much for hosting, hoping you have a great week!
Thanks for hosting, Niky! Always fun to party together! Have a great week!
Thanks so much Niky, Happy Hour with your son sounds like so much fun! Yes, I feel freedom coming back too…
It is a relief to be able to venture out again after being vaccinated! We are looking forward to more outdoor events soon.
A new week = a new round of recipes! Thanks so much for hosting this weekly link-up.
Thanks for hosting this lovely party each week!!! It is truly appreciated as I know how much time is involved!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
It is always a lift to the spirits to get out and visit with friends. Thanks for hosting, and have a wonderful week ahead.
Niky, how wonderful that you went out for Happy Hour! I have not eaten inside of a restaurant since February of 2020 when I went on a 10 day road trip down the east coast. I came home from that trip feeling so exhilarated and 3 weeks later we were in full lockdown. Fourteen months later and restaurants still make me so darn nervous about the weirdness factor! I think I need to make myself go soon to get over this strange fear of mine. Thanks for hosting the link up. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
