Weekend Plans...Or Lack Thereof

We have arrived at the final weekend in April. May is almost here, and I don't know about you, but I find May to be a busy month! End of the school year, spring weather, birthdays, graduation prep, and Memorial Day are things we have to look forward to in the upcoming month. So while those days will be full, these last few April days are not. And that is just fine with me.

Friday we have no plans except making tacos and enjoying a family movie night. Saturday we have Mass and then Steve and I are sneaking in under the wire with our monthly date night! That will make us four for four so far in 2017! Sunday is free. I was hoping to get the porch furniture out, but the weather has other ideas. No worries. I'm sure I will find something to fill my lazy afternoon. Perhaps a nice long nap.

Here are some photos of the past week in our country home...

I never tire of sharing this little one's love of dandelions...

It puts so much in perspective.
Life is busy. Slow down and notice simple things.
Appreciate and find beauty in them.

And share them with others.

On the same note, Steve and I took a ride last weekend.
Not to go anywhere...
Just to slow down and look and see...

Rather than let beauty be a blur outside our windows.

Pizza Peppers are amazing!
A cleaned out pepper, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper makes a delicious crust for a little pizza.
Who knew?

My littlest child discovered the awesomeness that is The Brady Bunch!
Love that show.
So much in fact I know every. single. episode.
My sweet blogger friend Kathleen does too.
And so of course I snapped this picture and sent it to her.
I didn't purposefully pick an obscure scene, but Kathleen was stumped!
And now...I am waiting for her to challenge me to one!

I love getting snapshots from these two!
Enjoying the Danish life, they are. : )

Meanwhile, here at home, I continued my morning walks.
I really like them.

I like the quiet and the crisp air and the singing birds...

Which is good.
Because I really like these too. 

Oh...and this!
This is a new Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Salad at Wendy's!
It is amazing!!!

They say the first step is admitting it, right?

That's a wrap on this one, my friends.
Have a wonderful weekend doing what you do with your people.
Thanks for visiting!!!


  1. Looks like you had a great week and a good weekend coming up. I love those drives with no particular destination in mind---just the joy of seeing what changes nature has wrought. You little girl is darling- what kid doesn't love picking dandelions?

    Hope your weekend is just wonderful and I will have to look for that salad at Wendy's. I usually get the one with pecans and chicken. xo Diana

  2. I want to play the Brady Bunch game! I've been obsessed with it since I was little and know every episode by heart. I absolutely know this episode but I won't spoil it : ) Looks like a wonderful week! Those peppers! I'm going to try them next week! Glad you are enjoying your morning walks. Have a great weekend and date night with hubby! ♥

  5. Looks like a great a week and those pepper pizzas -- genius!!! And now I must drive thru Wendy's too! Have a wonderful weekend sweetie!

  6. Billie Jo, I am a home body too. Not that I am a hermit, but just prefer being at home, in my own comfortable surroundings. That is neat idea to make pizza....we have a ton of peppers in the freezer, make have to take some out and give it a try. Hope you have a good weekend.

  7. You have an amazing place for your morning walk, Billie Jo! It's just beautiful. The pizza on a pepper sure looks good. I hope you enjoy whatever suits your fancy, dear one. ♥

  8. OH, I'm on it, sister! Can't believe you stumped me! I'll be sending you a challenge soon. You're going DOWN!
    The Brady Bunch was so fun to watch as a kid, but it takes on a whole new meaning now that we're parent---don't you think? So awesome.
    Love your sweet Flynn with those flowers. Give that sweetie a hug for me. Enjoy your weekend.

  9. Thank you for the smiles, Billie Jo. Have a beautiful rest of the weekend, my friend.

  10. The one where you went for a drive with Steve. That sunset with the church steeple is amazing! And so are the two of you.

  13. I agree about time with your dog!! Lovely lack of weekend plans. Sounds like a full wonderful weekend to me!
