To ease back into it, I thought I might start with a High Five for February and March!
1. Kahlua k-cups — We recently found a store called Tweed and Hickory where you can buy mix n’match k-cups for Keurig coffee makers. My absolute favorite flavor is the Kahlua flavored coffee cups. Even if I didn’t drink it, the smell is enough for me. Some runners up are Timothy’s: Irish Cream, and anything hazelnut.
2. Papyrus greeting cards — You’ve probably seen them at Chapters, for $6–12 each and thought only idiots buy them. WELLLLLLL I love them, and until recently I didn’t know they had their own stores, but I found one in Detroit. I bought about 5 (costing me a small fortune) but I absolutely love giving them to people. For Mother’s day last year I got my Mom one that looked like a leather motorcycle jacket — and if you know my Mom, it was highly appropriate. Not to brag, but my Dad said I give the best cards.
3. “What’s wrong with these photos” on the Ellen Show — I have still been loyal to YouTube, but lately I have moved on to watching clips of the Ellen Show. They have a segment called “What’s wrong with these photos” where she shows pictures people have taken of hilarious things/moments or awkward people/situations. One particular clip has a whole montage of pictures kids touching theme park characters inappropriately, it’s the best. Take a look.
4. Pretty Little Liars — The show is SO ridiculous and stupid…but I just finished season 3. Like seriously, lock your doors and close your curtains gurlllllz. Mostly every situation in the show can be avoided by not being stupid, but obviously that wouldn’t be very exciting would it? I must say though, the best part of the show is the character Wren.
5. Summer vacation — I still call summer “summer vacation” since it’s a vacation from depressing winter. This winter I have been particularly down, and I can’t wait for sunny weather. Instead of going home and curling up on the couch for the night, I can actually venture outside without fear of being buried by snow or freezing to death. We are planning a trip to Vancouver and Seattle at the end of June (suggested activities welcome). Also in the works are trips to Montreal for music and Toronto for ballet. Can life get any better? Goodbye savings.
And so ends my first blog of the spring time. I hope to do many more :) I am even thinking of doing some travel blog entries on here. Get excited.
