Yesterday after work my friend Jenn had a little happy hour so people could see her brand new kitchen. It has been under construction for months and she did some of the work herself! It was beautiful and I'm thrilled we could celebrate her new kitchen.

Today I am linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea to share my Friday favorites. I am happy it's Friday! This is a weekend full of fun! Tonight I have a happy hour at a friend's house to see her new kitchen, tomorrow we have a fundraiser for the YMCA, Sunday I'm doing a walk to support SADD at Ava's school and then I have a fundraiser for Hospice. It's going to be a GREAT weekend!

Last week I put together two little succulent arrangements for friends. I think it's always fun to give plants as gifts. I bought the little succulents at the grocery store.
Today I am linking up to Shay, Mel and Shaeffer for What's Up Wednesday. I always love this link up so you can see what I've been up to and I love reading what other people have been doing. March FLEW by! Two highlights are that I went to Florida and our Ava turned 15. We have also been busy getting ready to move into our summer house in May.
What I'm reminiscing about...my trip to Florida. I had the best time and it's been so cold and nasty here I wish I could go back!
What I'm loving....
What we've been up to....
What I'm dreading... I have 4 jobs and sometime it's tough to balance it all. I work full time at the college, I'm a fitness instructor at the Y, I work part time for a small non profit in our town and I have Branch and Bloom. Big things are happening at each one and I want to make sure I'm giving my all to each of them. It's tough sometimes to manage everything!
What I'm working on.... When I went to the Philadelphia flower show I went to a workshop on succulent jewelry. I got all of the supplies and I am going to make myself a succulent bracelet for two events I have this weekend. Here is a necklace from that workshop. Isn't it goregous?
What I'm excited about.....my dear friend Sabrina and I are planning a little spring break trip for us and our girls. We are going to go to Washington DC to see the sights.
What I'm watching/reading....I have ordered so many books from Amazon (see above-ha ha) these are two of my favorites. I read We Were The Lucky Ones for my book group this month. I couldn't put it down. It was SO good. The book was about a Jewish family and their extraordinary struggles during WW2. They were all split up but they all managed to survive. I love this book because it's based on a true story. I know this will be one of my favorites from 2017.
I also just got this book on the recommendation from my favorite podcast. I can't wait to read it!
What I'm listening to.....speaking of podcasts. I've been listening to a lot of them. My three favorites are Lore, Happier and Slow Flowers. I listen to podcasts when I'm in the car and I'm obsessed. I love them!
What I'm wearing...we are still wearing our winter clothes-ughhhhh! I'm ready for spring!
What I'm doing this weekend...I have a happy hour, a fundraiser for the Y, a walk for SADD, and a fundraiser for hospice on the calendar for this weekend. It will be a fun filled weekend! I'm going to enjoy it because next weekend G and I are planning on painting and cleaning our house to get it ready for tenants.
What I'm looking forward to next month...our spring break trip to Washington DC!
What else is going on... My dear friends Jenn, Rachael and I collaborating on a few fun events this spring. We are planning a Farm Retreat in May at Jenn's farm. She teaches yoga so at the retreat we will do two yoga classes, enjoy a farm fresh healthy lunch and make a windowsill herb garden.
I can't wait to hear about what everyone had been up to this month. March was good to us. I can't wait to see what April brings.
Today I am linking up with Andrea to show my top 5 favorite pictures. This was SO hard for me because I have SO many pictures. I have 5,680 on my phone alone. I love pictures and I loved going through my pictures to find the pictures for this post. It was a fun trip down memory lane :)
1. I love this picture of our kids. They both LOVE basketball but since they are 5 years apart they weren't ever in high school at the same time to play together. They both do the Gus Macker tournament every year and it's so fun to be able to watch both of them play in the same tournament.
I hope you had a great Tuesday.

We had a jam packed weekend full of fun! I would love to have another day to recover and get stuff done around the house but I'm headed back to work today.

Last night I had a going away party for my friend Donna. She's moving two hours south. Another friend had a party for her and asked each of us to bring a snack to share.
