Hello Friday!

Well, we were supposed to officially start our spring break today, but we’re not. On Tuesday I ended up with a scratchy throat that has put me on my “death-bed” for the past couple of days and I am still struggling to function. I thought about continuing on with our spring break anyways but by the time Monday comes (If I am even feeling 100% by then) our break would only be 4 days. So I made the tough decision and decided to postpone our spring break. Our new break will run from 12:00 noon on April 7th through, April 16th. It was a VERY tough decision to make, but one that I felt was for the best. I know it will be worth it in the end. 


I was on quite the roll this week… and then I got sick. Getting sick mid kitchen purge is not good friends. Not good at all. Our dining room table has been unusable for days now. I hope to feel up to getting things back in order this weekend. 

Reactions > Like

Recently I heard a rumor that Facebook responds better to reactions than likes in their ever so confusing algorithms. So when supporting other bloggers I have been trying to take this into account. Supposedly receiving reactions helps to boost how many people see your posts. If there is actually any truth behind any of this is beyond me but it is totally worth a try, right?!

Anna sent me a link to this video earlier this week and for a few minute I forgot that I had watched it.

Somethings will always be funny.

Kimono Love!

I grabbed my first kimono last year off Amazon and ever since then I have been wanting to grab another one… or five. 

Cream / Light Blue / Dark Blue / Multi Floral
Here are a few of my favorite picks. I actually bought the multi colored floral last year and love it.

Have you ever bought a kimono off amazon?

Friday Link-Ups

    Drew and I were just talking about that video the other day. It cracks me up. Love the kimonos!! So pretty.

    • It is so funny. Me too! I think I need to snag a few more!

  • Feel better, Beth! I feel your pain. And mid purge— uggggg! I feel that pain too :(. You totally have the height to pull off a kimono- I just look like I’m wearing drapery.

    • Thank you! I went to the Dr. Friday morning and feel almost human again now. Baha ha! I have a hard time believing that you look bad in anything.

  • Boo to being sick! That is no fun at all. 🙁 I hope that you feel better quickly! Those kimonos are so pretty!!

    • Oh man I was SO freaking sick girl. I neglected everything for days. That was TERRIBLE!

  • Hope you’re feeling better…buying kimonos on amazon always make me feel better…or something like that.

    • Haha! I think I was beyond that point. I literally did nothing for days and was too sick to even care.

  • I love the dark kimono but when I went to order it it won’t ship till the week I’m in Mexico and well dang it, I wanted it for Mexico.

    • That is the bad part about them. They always take WEEKS to get here. I should order a few soon so I have them for May.

  • Hope you’re feeling better, friend! Those kimonos are so cute!

    • I ended up at the dr. on Friday and after a few days of meds I almost feel human again.

  • Oh my goodness I love those kimonos!! Really hope you are back to 100% soon. Sorry you had to reschedule but glad you are going to take a break. Always needed!

    • I am almost there now. After 3 days of fever I went to the dr. on Friday morning and he really straightened me out. Thank God. I don’t think I have been that sick in YEARS!

  • Whitney Jordan

    Sorry to hear you’re sick! Hope you make a quick recovery and can really enjoy your spring break. I think you should do some retail therapy and order a kimono or two to help you feel better! I adore that multi colored one and can’t believe it’s under $13!!

    • I am on the mend now. After a trip to the Dr. on Friday and 4 prescriptions I am finally turning a corner. That was just AWFUL friend. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

  • Lizzie Simantz

    Thanks for the tip about Facebook, I hadn’t heard that! Those kimonos are gorgeous!! I hope you are feeling much better now and you can full enjoy your Spring Break next week! xo

    • I am finally feeling human and I was wide awake before 6:30 on this cool, rainy morning. So that is GREAT news and a great start. Thanks Lizzie.

  • I saw that hashtag vid before, but had to watch it again! #fallonandtimberlakearehilarioustogether Hope you’re feeling all better now, friend! Wishing you all the best with your purge. I always do a big one as soon as our school year wraps up. I have a love/hate relationship with that tradition, but it always feels great when its done. lol. I don’t own any kimonos, and I’m rethinking that after all that loveliness you shared! #swoon 😉

    • It is SO funny! I almost want to watch it again. I am finally feeling almost normal today. I still can’t believe I got that sick. I wipe the school room totally out and do some purging in there when we finish every year too. I can’t believe we only have about 6 more weeks until that happens!
