Catching Up!

Hello friends! 
Welcome back...I'm glad you stopped by. I've been super busy lately and have not had the time to post. I'm catching up by sharing some happenings from my iPhone photo roll. 
Nothing too exciting happening around here. I am happy to report that I am feeling so much better. I was sick for over a month, even after taking an antibiotic. I still have a cough attack occasionally but for the most part, it is gone.

These photos are from the past couple weeks. The hubby and I decided to go for a 4-wheeler ride several days ago. It was fun...I hardly ever do anything like that.

I went with my sister to see her middle son and his date all dressed up for prom. Aren't they a sweet couple?

I've been enjoying the wildflowers growing alongside many of our highways. The phlox and Black-eyed Susan's are so pretty....such happy colors!

I made a new recipe one night...skinny burrito bowls. So yummy!

This past week was Teacher Appreciation week and I was gifted some sweet gifts. These are the only ones I photographed though. My principal also let us leave for lunch out one day and she paid for it. She does this every year for the entire faculty and staff. She also provided lunch at school on Friday...tacos to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!

The hubby and I saw a beautiful double rainbow after we went out to supper Friday evening.

I'verecedntly  become an iced-coffee fan and am loving the caramel iced coffee from McDonald's. So yummy! The hubby and I sold our Volkswagen rail buggy yesterday and we both got an iced coffee to enjoy on our drive to meet the guy who bought it.

I went by the consignment shop where I sell some of the things I get rid of. I only picked up one thing while I was there. I love this beautiful wreath and it was just $3!

I hung it over the TV in the living room. I am pretty happy with this entire wall now. Sadie says she approves too. :)

I've of course done a little shopping...I found this adorable Creamery piece at Wal Mart of all places. It was super cheap...just under $5. It is perfect in my kitchen. I haven't hung it yet...still trying to decide exactly where I want it.

And speaking of Cream...I tried a new flavor of Halo Top and it is amazing! I love this stuff!

I also found this adorable little cow card holder at the Dollar General for just $1. It is too cute!

I baked a pineapple upside down cake for work lunch tomorrow. My kindergarten team and I along with several of the pre-k teachers take turns pairing up and cooking lunch on Mondays. Tomorrow is my day and this is the dessert I decided on. 

Rooster thinks if he sits pretty he will get a!

Over the past couple weeks, I have also been shopping with my sister for baby shower items for a shower I am helping her host next weekend. I scrapbooked all of my April photos from the Collect app on my phone. I've been cleaning and organizing at home and school. I was off this past Monday for my dad's surgery. He had another back surgery but is home now and doing well. I saw him yesterday for his birthday. Mama cooked a delicious lunch and we had a nice visit. I also started going back to my workouts last week after missing a month due to being sick. I have been so sore! I've been slowly starting to wrap things up at school. I can hardly believe this year is seems like it just began! It's always a bittersweet feeling. This week promises to be another busy one, but I'm ready for it. I hope you are ready to tackle a new week as well. As always, thank you so much for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful week.

Until next time.....
