What did you learn this week?

I learned that...

1.  Chicken salad is better when you cook the chicken yourself instead of taking a shortcut with a rotisserie chicken, which is good but not AS good.

2.  I should never try to make up my own exercise moves.  Ouch.  Part of the problem could be that I haven't exercised in forty forevers.

3.  Being too nice can backfire. BIGTIME!

4.  It is very hard to find a nice dress (i.e. guest of an outdoor lowcountry wedding) with 3/4 length sleeves that doesn't look like it is supposed to be worn by a little old lady. 

5.  You cannot walk into a spa on prom weekend and expect to get a "walk ins welcome" appointment.

6.  The TV show Duck Dynasty is HILARIOUS.  Oh My Gosh...I almost fell off of the sofa laughing.

7.  Meryl Streep was superb in the role of Lady Margaret Thatcher but the movie eventually put me to sleep. Glad we didn't go see it in the theater.

8.  Going to the farmer's market and doing the farm to table "thing" can be just as much fun as going out to dinner.  Except for the whole cleaning up the kitchen thing.

What did you learn this week???


  1. When is the wedding? I previewed some cute 3/4 sleeve Lilly dresses that are coming out for summer.

    I fell asleep during the Iron Lady too, but I want to finish it!

    I'm excited to get to our farmer's market soon!

    1. The wedding is May 26. I'll be on the lookout for the Lilly dresses. My arms are a little chunky for sleeveless but I'm way to young for a little old lady dress.

  2. Even being 23, I find it hard to find an appropriate dress for a wedding. They either look like a 5 year olds dress or it’s too bulky to be a summer dress. Ugh!

  3. #3....Agree completely! Been there, done that, have the scars to prove it.

    #7....Dear Husband and I watched it last night. She was great, but I was completely bored by the end...and ended up doing something else/half-watched it.

    Cheers! Liz
