This Week (in Instagram)


Lately:

I hit up my first yard sale of the season.......


Thanks to a friend's text, I was able to hit up a great sale!

I can't resist little tables.

*   *   *   *

I got something fun in the mail........


I've been wanting some paper straws.  Just because.

Chevrons make them even better.
 
 *   *   *   *

I finished Insurgent whilst sitting on the porch ~ in shorts ~ sunning.........


Best sequel I've ever read.

Loving this series.

Loved the short-lived spring weather too.

  *   *   *   *

By mid-week, however, there was no more sunning on the porch.  We even had flurries yesterday.

So instead of fun spring dresses, I had to break out the scarves and boots again.......


But I did get to try out my new favorite scarf.

Not that that makes the chilly weather okay.

Spring, what is going on!?!

*   *   *   *

I was so cold yesterday, that when I got home and discovered my favorite magazine had arrived, I just had to do this.........


It's one of my favorite rituals.

I needed a serene moment.  Because I still hadn't done my taxes.  And that was my goal last night.  To sit down with Turbo Tax.

Nothing like waiting til last minute.

That's how I roll.

  4. The weather is like that too here...I was in flip flops at the beginning of the week and now I'm wearing boots. It's gotta warm up again soon though since it is April and all. Have a great weekend!

  7. I want to go to a yard sale too! You're lucky to have some popping up already. Thanks for instagramming the results of your paper straw soggy factor. I've always been curious! Actually... I suppose they're a lot like pixi stix!
    The bath and CL read looks delightful!

  14. I haven't been to many yard sales but if I knew I could find things like that, I'd be going every weekend. Great finds! I haven't ever bought any paper straws but I really want to, love the chevron. I am nearly done with Divergent and LOVING IT! Glad you got to enjoy some spring weather before the flurries set in again. Hoping spring will stick around next time it shows up.
