This past week or so we’ve had some awesome weather around here. So it would be kind of foolish not to take advantage of that seeing as how today it’s already in the 90s 😒
Anyway, Friday the kid count was low at work and only two kids in my class showed up. I teach preschool (incase you didn’t know). My boss asked if anyone wanted to go home —duh! Gabbi and I went home to start our impromptu 3 day weekend.
When we got home we did some cleaning so we wouldn’t have to do any Saturday or Sunday. We were done around noon and picked up some lunch from the Spring Creek Tea Room. I LOVE their vegetarian sandwich! It’s seriously the best sandwich I’ve ever had (I’m not a big sandwich eater).
We went to Cal’s work and brought him some lunch. After we left there I took Gabbi to the park. We were there for 3 hours! And I had to drag her from the park. While we were there, Gabbi asked if Calvin and I would take her to “silly daughter silly”. It took me like 3 tries before I realized what she was trying to say was Silver Dollar City. She said “Faith has been to silly daughter silly 2 times and you never take me.” Well, obviously we had to go! Also this is the last year she’s free…so there’s that.
Saturday we drove down to Branson and spent the day at Silly Daughter Silly 😃. We had a lot of fun. I have been two other times and it was hard for me to enjoy for a few reasons. 1. Both times I have gone, I went with an infant. 2. Both times I have gone, it was winter. The weather Saturday was great for it. And Gabbi could actually ride the rides this time. I think the tea cups were her favorite. We ended up getting season passes. So I’m sure we’ll be back again soon.
Sunday we went to church and then spent the rest of the day hanging out at the house. Calvin has been watching Sherlock which I can’t seem to get into. I mostly think that’s due to the fact that Gabbi can’t watch it so I’m normally hanging with her or we’re sleeping while he’s watching it. I’ve caught enough to kinda know what’s going on, but not really.
I’ve been binge reading It Starts With Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig. I tried to do the Whole 30 before, but failed. I decided if I was going to try it again I was actually going to read the book and prepare myself. I will be starting it August 1st with my best friend and my mom! I have collected a lot more recipes and am a little better prepared. So we’ll see how it goes! I hope to update you with my experience as I go along. There are several things I hope to gain from the program. I also have a few habits I hope to ditch. But that’s another topic for another day.
