Ahoy Mateys! Happy Teacup Tuesday perhaps washed down with a bottle of rum me hearties 😉
Goodness where to start!? We had a fun afternoon at the grand opening of the new Hamburg Inn location. If you're ever in Iowa City, I definitely recommend eating there and don't forget a pie shake! 😊
And then we walked, sang, and shouted for our elementary school in the City High parade. I love this town! •••••••••••••••••••••••••
I'll talk more about this next Tuesday but on Saturday when I flew into Chicago from LA I decided to go enjoy afternoon tea before driving home. What a delightful treat! Also after navigating LA freeways and inner city Chicago without any mishaps, I feel like I can do anything haha! ••••••••••••••••••••••
I want to give a shout out to my sweetheart of a friend Bonnie. You count yourself lucky if you have a close friend like Bonnie. Only a week out from surgery and still very much recovering, she didn't even hesitate when I asked if I could stay with her for a week. We definitely didn't get to spend as much time together as we would've liked because of work but I think we treasured the time we did have. -I think some of my favourite moments were wearing my heels to the grocery store but bringing flats just in case and her three year old did the same, brought her sparkly shoes and some plain ones just in case. 😂
-All the kids waiting up for me and showing off the night I got there. -Spending time in the kitchen together. -Introducing me at church as her dear friend.
-Our wonderful relaxing beach day. Being able to be myself and chat for awhile but also not feel bad for dozing off for a bit in the sun. -The drive home, picking out songs for Bonnie and her husband to guess. Whoever guessed the song title first, won. Such giggles! -Playing Anomia the night before I left with Bonnie, her dad, and her husband Spencer. The howls of laughter and fun just warmed my heart.
I love that girl. She's one of my special ones. ❤️
How has your week been? Do anything exciting? Let's chat in the comments! 😘
