If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen the picture of Ringo giving me cuddles while I was home sick last week. I left work early on Wednesday to go to the doctor and he told me I had a chest infection. I ended up staying home from work the rest of the week and spent the weekend recuperating. Thankfully I’m feeling better now and just have a bit of a cough left. Being sick sucks!
Two – 201
I bowled 201 during one of our league games a couple weeks ago! It was by far my best game ever and I went completely crazy. I’m pretty sure the entire bowling alley could hear me yelling. Previously, my best game was 170, but my average is like 114, so bowling over 200 is pretty amazing for me. My friend Scott had to take this picture for me because my hands were shaking too much!
Three – The Brush Bar
On Saturday I went to The Brush Bar with some friends for a bachelorette party. As I mentioned above, I was pretty sick over the weekend, so I missed all of the other bachelorette party events, but I had already paid/registered for the painting class and I didn’t want to miss all of the festivities, so I forced myself to go…and I’m glad I did! It was so much fun! I’ve always wanted to do a wine/painting class and it didn’t disappoint. The painting we did was called Midnight in Paris and mine turned out surprisingly decent (thanks to a great instructor and easy to follow directions). I had a great time and would love to do it again!
Four – The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
I was looking at cute pictures on the Aww subreddit the other day and came across a story about Daphne Sheldrick and her work with orphaned elephants. Long story short: I’m now “fostering” a 3 year old elephant named Zongoloni! You can read more about the organization here and more about fostering here. Oh, and read the orphan stories with caution – they are heartbreaking…I might have teared up
Five – One Room Challenge
Lastly, I just want to remind you all that the next One Room Challenge starts April 2nd! It’s only a couple weeks away, so start planning! I highly recommend joining the challenge if you need some room makeover motivation. I made SO much more progress in my laundry room and master bathroom than I ever would have without the pressure of the challenge. I think for this challenge I’m going to work on my dining room. I shared my master plan last month and haven’t done anything since. The ORC is just the motivation I need to get moving!
