Five on Friday

 Five things I did today:

1.  Annual Doctors Appointment.  Everything is fine, except I'm fat.  LOL.  Working on that, K?! :)

2. Ordered a new crossbody purse.  I love the one I have, it's about to break though..  I've had it for about three years, so it's on to retirement once I get the new one (which has already shipped!)

3. Got dose #1 of the Moderna vaccine!  

4.  Set up the dogs water fountain.  They were a little unsure at first, but I think they are okay now!

5.  I went to Bath & Body Works because I couldn't figure out exactly what my coupons were for when I tried to order online.  The girl had the store even had a little issue figuring it out, I don't feel as stupid now.  

What did you do today?

Happy March!

 This year feels like it is flying away!  

March is one of my favorites.  It's the end of the winter and the spring is upon us.  New beginnings and such, right?

March is Women's History month and I have some reads lined up for the theme.  

On the first day of March, we celebrate World Compliment Day!  Compliment a family member, a friend or a stranger.  Put a smile on someone's face!

This past weekend was pretty tame.  New tires on Saturday.  A Marshalls shopping trip.  The internet going out for half the day on Saturday.  So much laundry!  Going through towels and old blankets to donate to the local animal shelter.  Oh, and yoga with cats!  

The cats help me work each day.  I do appreciate them so.

I went bowling with my mom last weekend.  The first time bowling in over a year.  I scored over 100, which might be my best ever.  I'm not a good bowler, friends.

We had Door Dash deliver (the driver told me my street and house didn't exist. lol) Fuzzy's Tacos!   The California Heat one is my favorite.  The kids both got burritos and the dogs were super interested in eating them.

A Marshall's find.  This body scrub smells so good!  It might be a new favorite!

Ruby chillin in the dryer.  Because why not?

Peyton goes to school on Monday and Wednesday.  Draco and I take him together.  Draco loves his early morning car rides.  Look at his serious face after P gets out of the car.

My little panthers.  Such good boys!  The Chewy package arrived early Sunday morning.  Thank you, Fed Ex driver, that had to carry that heavy box!  The cats love sitting in the little boxes that separate the canned food.

Happy Monday all!  Hope all is well!!
