Happy Friday, friends and who is raising their hands high with me to welcome the weekend! Bring it!
After a week of recuperating from attending my 15th Las Vegas NASCAR race last Sunday (my husband and parents have been to every single race since it started for a total of 19!), meeting with clients, visiting blogging friends, trying to work ahead to get blog photo shoots and posts bagged and done, done, done (I’m getting better at it!) plus transporting myself back to my sophomore high school English class to help my Smudge with a 7-page essay on becoming a mythological creature (she’s turning into such a great writer!), I for one am ready for Friday night and a cold glass of wine (this is a recent favorite.)
Don’t forget that this weekend is Daylight Savings! Time to set the clocks ahead an hour and heed these 10 ideas of how to take advantage of that extra hour of daylight. I will for sure be doing more of #8 but could totally go for more of #6 as I do NOTHING!
If you haven’t planned out your St. Patrick’s Day feast yet, I spent the week prepping it for you with my favorite recipes for Corned Beef and Cabbage and a monster of a Reuben sandwich. Also, 30+ lucky St. Patrick’s Day recipes, here.
