Good morning! Today’s Five come as L and I zip down I-81. Nothing like a road trip to get the blog posting juices flowing! We’re going to spend the weekend reconnecting with friends and family while cleaning things out of my grandparents’ house.
Before I go into my Five, one last thing: Monday is Memorial Day. I want to take one minute to thank everyone who has served or is serving in the United States Armed Services. You keep us safe and and you give me hope. Thank you.
Today, I just want to share a quick, simple side dish. I adore asparagus, and we eat a lot of southwestern-inspired food, so this cumin-spiced Garlic-Lime Asparagus is a great accompaniment for those dishes. It’s easy to throw together and adds great color to your plate. Let me know if you try it!
Friday! This weekend promises to be productive. Tonight, L and I are planning to go through the second half of our pictures, then tomorrow I’m taking a watercolor class with my friend Mariana. We’re also hoping to do some serious work on our garden… Fingers crossed that the weather cooperates!
First of all, yes, I am aware that it is May, so this April Ipsy Glam Bag Review is overdue. That said, I was out of the country for half of April and running around like a crazy person for the other half, so this is the best I could do. I also forgot to take a picture of the bag, so Lee Ann Hicks‘ picture of her bag below. Excuses, excuses, I know.
While I absolutely loved my March Glam Bag, April didn’t quite hit the nail on the head for me. I only really love one product, which is a bummer, but I’m glad I got to try some new things.
Last night, my grandmother passed away after a year of fighting invasive bladder cancer. I was blessed to have had Mary Jane Wyatt touch my life, and I am so grateful that she can be with her husband now.
