Fun Stuff on Fridays 2 comments


May 5, 2017, posted by Gina – The fact that it’s Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby festivities commence means there’s plenty of fun already built into to this Friday! We are not betting girls ourselves, but an event that combines mint juleps, fancy hats and horses with names like Classic Empire, Practical Joke, Irish War Cry and Always Dreaming, well, what’s not to love?

Michelle, being far, far away from Kentucky and Mexico, is going to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at the only Tex-Mex restaurant in Lyon, L’Hacienda. She tells me nothing is more fun than ordering your Mexican meal in French. Oh la la olé! As for us, we’ll be spending the weekend watching baseball and it looks like the weather will be on the cold side. How is that possible after being 90 degrees just last week? Anyway, grab your margarita or mint julep and settle in because we have some additional fun stuff to talk about with you!

I may be obsessed about laundry but with two boys playing multiple sports or participating in some outdoor activity, my washer was constantly running when they were growing up. Somehow, even though they are both living elsewhere, they continue to bring large piles of laundry home and then disappear.

If you saw our post last week about the bleach tablets then you know we can’t get this topic off our minds. But one of our readers left us a comment sharing the wonders of Persil Laundry detergent. Trusting our loyal reader, we went out and purchased this fabulous detergent and we love it.

A few years ago, I saw someone’s laundry supplies arranged so attractively that I went home and did the same with mine. It’s nice having everything at hand and it somehow makes the mundane chore of doing laundry a little better.

I am obsessed with these shoes! Flowers and comfort all in one. They have been ordered and will find their way to my front door very soon. How about you? Would you wear something this loud?

I thought I would give you a sneak peek at a project I am working on for an upcoming engagement party. Check in next week to see how I used these and what other arrangements I came up with on for the party.

    Moi, j’aime les fajitas vegetariens (vegetariennes?)! Love those spiffy floral *chaussures* as well! By the way, I will be at the flower shop tomorrow, and plan to make myself one-a-them fancy rose pave’ centerpieces you featured. It will be a fun way to use up the last of this week’s roses before the fresh Monday shipment. And lastly: so glad you’re now a fan of Persil! It flat gets the job done—glad I found it before our grandson gets into all those sports. While we’re on that topic: what kind of washer/dryer do you have, and do you love them? I just did the math and realized that my trusty Whirlpools are—gulp—14 years old! We bought them when we moved to Avery in ’03. So far still churning away, but I’m starting to research replacements for “when the day comes”…

      So excited you will be making the rose pave centerpiece. The one we featured used 4 dozen roses. The great thing is that it looks as good today as it did on Tuesday. The Persil is a keeper. As far as our washer and dryer, both are Electrolux and are 13 years old so I am right there with you, I would buy Electrolux again as I have only had one repair in all those years. I keep thinking their time is limited but somehow they just keep going. Have fun with the centerpiece.
