What We've Been Doing

Yesterday, being the first day of spring, we went to Rita's for free frozen ices!  I have had more off plan meals lately and so I didn't want to have one, but I wanted a treat so I made a thin mint shake from this recipe.  Easy and tasty!

We took Kamryn with us, too.

 It was partly sunny but chilly and breezy (can you see my hair flying around?) so we only sat outside for a few minutes!  They finished up their treats in the car!

When we got home we worked on more schoolwork.

Then in the evening, Tim and I went to a Chick-fil-A A-lister party! It was held in the lobby of Sight and Sound Theatres and we got to try out a new soup that will be in the restaurant here later in the year, and see a preview of a few other treats, like the Strawberry Frozen Lemonade and a new sandwich that is going to be amazing.

Mark Cathy from Chick-fil-A was there and spoke.  Tim and I spoke with him afterward and I'm telling you the family that owns Chick-fil-A are genuine and focused on SERVING their customers.

It was a fun night.

Later this week, I'm taking my niece Crystal, her daughter and Kyle to see Jonah, thanks to friends who share free tickets!

Scottish Dancing tonight - the men will be wearing their kilts tonight, and we'll be celebrating St. Patty's Day.

Busy days ahead, with a business seminar on Wednesday evenings that Tim and I are going to go to for five weeks, and then our co-op on Thursday.  I'll need the weekend to recover but its all good stuff!

Please tell me I'm not the only busy one!  What are you all up to?


  1. Definitely NOT as busy as you! I have learned to pace myself & say "no" to some of the stuff I could be doing so that I can focus (and have energy) for the things I SHOULD be doing. Does that make sense? When you're as old as I am............LOL!

  2. It's a busy time of year and with more daylight and sun, the energy to accomplish much more. I'm glad you mentioned Chic-fil-A, we've seen them in the US but never eaten at one and with your positive remarks I'd like to try their food.
    Happy Spring Deanna.

  3. Oh I wish that we had Chick-fil-A's in our corner. They sound like a wonderful business.

    Hmmm...your shake sounds very tasty. I could not pass the Thin Mints by and thought they'd be a good treat for the boys after sledding on Sunday. They don't like them! Guess that means just one thing: they are a good treat for me that I don't have to share. 😏

    You are very busy. Much more so than I, but you have lots of friends and family and you are not empty nesting. Enjoy it all!

  4. CFAs in our town are wonderful--lots of kids we know have worked in them over the years, gotten college scholarships and several either own franchises or manage now. What a great business model. I can't wait for the soup to arrive! You sound happily busy and what a great way to celebrate the arrival of spring!

  5. Looks busy but fun! I think we need a Chic Fil A up here in Anchorage!

  6. Love their chicken... gasp...so good.

    Kilts! :) My hubby wears one sometimes. He is a piper.

  7. Kristin and I went to Rita's with the kids yesterday! I wonder if we were eating Italian ice at the same time . . . while we were texting our new phone numbers?

    We love Chick-fil-A too! It is such a great company and they have great food. Can't wait to try the strawberry frozen lemonade.

  8. Looks like a fun way to spend the 1st day of Spring:) I LOVE Chick-fil-a! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  9. Can you believe I have never been to a Chick-fil-a? There is not one anywhere nearby. I think I'm missing out! ;)
