Five Faves for Friday!

Margarita Monday 
Monday was a pitiful day at work. And since it was my early day, I actually had time (and felt like!)  making dinner.  I made my signature dish (HA) Salsa Chicken!  And since it was such a terrible day, I thought, to turn it around, I needed a drink!  What goes better with Salsa Chicken than MARGARITAS?!?!  The night ended on a high note... 

Tech Tuesday   
On Tuesday night my neighbor, Rosemary called me up and asked me to come over and look at her printer because she was having trouble with it.  From our past conversations, she knew I was  pretty good with computers so she thought I could figure out what the problem was.  After about 10 minutes I had her printer up and running again.    She was ecstatic!!  Rosemary, who's 70 something, told me she knows nothing about computers and offered to pay me to teach her.  I told her we could have Tech Tuesdays in the summer and all she needed to pay me with was a glass of wine!  :) 

Celebrating Mom! 
Wednesday night we celebrated my mom's retirement.  It was so much fun!  Her friends and colleagues  did a beautiful job and said lovely things about her.  So did my dad, who actually stole the show with his comedy routine! #whoknew I know my mom will miss her friends and work tremendously, but it's time! her and my dad are on to a new chapter in their lives!! 

Mom absolutely loved her party...can't you tell??

Paint Night 
On Thursday night a few friends and I went to a Paint Night Fundraiser in support of the March of Dimes.  The hosts of the Fundraiser Patty and Andy, had a son Aidan who was born at 25 weeks.  The March of Dimes is near and dear to their hearts.   As it is to me as well, being a premie too! Aidan is now 3 years old and is doing great!  I was really VERY nervous about this because I am NOT a painter.  But looking at it from far away, I don't think it came out too, too bad!

Friday Night In 
Tonight I really have no plans.  I am spending the night doing the housework I've neglected for the last three weeks.  Every time I've left the house lately, I've thought to myself, “Well if somebody tried to rob the place, they'd come in and think I'd already been hit!”  So clearly I have some work to do!  Then it's an evening on my couch with wine, thin mints, and The Reagan Family! 

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. That Salsa Chicken looks so good! I am all about a good Margarita!

    Have a great weekend.

  2. Happy Weekending, hope it's a good one. My mom is also retiring next month...I should really start thinking about how we're going to celebrate her.

  3. Margaritas, celebrating mom, painting for a cause dear to your heart with friends -- sounds like such a wonderful week!! Congrats to your mom on her retirement! So exciting!! Enjoy your time lounging with thin mints and wine after cleaning tonight. I always find it motivating to have something to look forward to after putting in some extra elbow grease around the house. ;)

  4. What an awesome fundraiser! I have ALWAYS wanted to try a paint night. It looks like so much fun. And such a great cause too!
