Celebrate the Small Things and Express Yourself

It's Friday!  Let's Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain!  TheCyborgMom and I are her co-hosts.

I just finished grocery shopping, and the store had a lot of good deals going on, so that's always nice.  Who doesn't like to save money?

The kids are starting T-ball in the next week.  They're definitely excited about that!

We have two birthday parties to attend this weekend.  We'll be busy, but it should be fun!

Three day weekend!  Who doesn't enjoy a holiday spent with family?  Unless you don't like your family, of course.  Fortunately, I like mine.  Most of the time, anyway.

I also got a cool idea for a short story.  I'll try to find time to work on that this weekend.

What would you like to celebrate?

The Express Yourself Weekly Meme is hosted by Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests.

The question for this week is:  What quirks does your BFF have that you adore, because it makes them unique?

Well, my BFF Chelsea and I have a few quirks in common that have helped us remain friends for about two decades.  We enjoy the same British comedies, we both enjoy Doctor Who, and we both have a strong love of Oolong tea.

Chelsea is also super creative.  She's a great artist (I am not), and she can draw inspiration from just about anything.  And as we all know, artists are often quirky, but it keeps things entertaining.


  1. Sounds like you have a busy, but fun, weekend coming up. Enjoy! And good luck with your short story!

  2. Yay for deals at the grocery store and for T-ball (whatever that is. lol). Two birthdays is a lot, but it'll give you time to work on that new story idea. Go for it! :)

  3. I love watching T ball - lucky you!!! Enjoy those birthdays, and your weekend :)

  4. It is a good thing you like your family!

  5. Yay for good deals! Enjoy hanging out with family, and have a good weekend.

  6. Have a great weekend with your family, and good luck on your new story.

  7. Friday was my daughter's birthday and we had a great time celebrating. Next week should be fun, also. We're going to the movies.

    Hope your short story comes together.

  8. My bff is coming to visit me this year. We are so opposite in many ways but have been like sisters over thirty years.
    Dropping by from the A to Z Road trip to say hello.
    I like your blog. It's cool.

  9. T-Ball is so much fun. When my kids were in it, they thought I was a professional ball player. Now, my daughter (13) out throws me and my son (7) tells me "Watch out!" whenever he throws a ball. :-1

    As for one of my BFF's quirks... she's and I LOVE vinegar salad dressings. When we have gatherings, we both wait for the salad bowls to finish so we can swipe it clean with bread. We take the bowls and secretly fight over the left over vinegar juice. Whenever we go out to dinner, we get a salad with extra dressing. I don't know anyone else who likes vinegar and bread as much as we do. :-D

    Have a great weekend!
