Monthly Musings: May 2022

 It's the last Thursday of the month and time to link up with Holly and Patty for monthly musings.  This month we are looking at summer fashions.  I think quite a few of my answers are repeats from other Q&A posts and probably aren't very exciting but here goes...  1. Favorite summer footwear? So easy! My flip flops.  I have a good dozen pairs and I switch out which ones I'm wearing frequently but two of my favorites are Clark's brand and these cushiony Sketchers.  Clark's Sketchers on the go sandals 2. Favorite summer accessories?

Even while swimming I wear sunglasses 3. Must have summer beauty products? Other than sunscreen I don't really use any beauty products.  4. Do you have a signature summer fragrance or perfumes?

What's Up Wednesday: May 2022

Today I'm joining up with Sheaffer and Shay for a little look at what's up. How is it already the last Wednesday of May?!  This spring is just flying by.  We finally have had some nice, sunny weather and it seems like New England jumped right to summer-- I'm not complaining!  What We're Eating This Week:   Monday: Whole wheat spaghetti and meatballs in the crock pot with salad.  Tuesday: burgers/ veggie burgers/ hot dogs with salad and pasta salad (this recipe is only 4 points per serving on WW) .  Wednesday:  Unsloppy joes with fries (butternut squash fries for me) Thursday: It's our anniversary so I'm not cooking; hopefully my husband and I will be going out and the boys will get themselves takeout.  Friday:   Baked haddock with roasted potatoes and broccoli What I'm Reminiscing About:  Lately I've been thinking a lot about our (nearly) 21 years of marriage and all the trips we've been on, the things we've experienced together, and the life
