Whats up!! My household celebrated Easter late this yr so I’ve a fast recap of the festivities and this weekend’s RUN, EAT and RRR-LISTEN (did you assume I used to be going to say repeat?).
Due to on a regular basis I spend operating and strolling Diego (and perhaps as a result of I solely have 1 pal)… I spend TONS of time listening to audiobooks and podcasts. And I like sharing my suggestions so that you don’t waste your time with reveals or books I’d say skip. So I’m going to start out recapping that in my run reviews too. Let’s go.
A couple of years in the past my SIL launched confetti eggs to my household as a part of the Easter Egg Hunt. Earlier than that we had the same old plastic eggs with sweet and the occasional hard-boiled egg. The primary yr she introduced them was further humorous as a result of it was a whole shock after which all of a sudden you hear a noise and get showered with confetti.
Now everybody in my household is ready and on the lookout for the confetti eggs greater than the sweet ones!
Even Diego tried to wrestle BIG confetti egg from me…
Okay, I understand it doesn’t look that large within the image, however it is a Large Confetti Egg. I scored this on the 99 Cent Retailer the night time earlier than. It was in a 2 pack of GIANT Confetti Eggs and one thing I’d by no means seen earlier than. And it was actually 3x greater than the opposite eggs however I’ve arms greater than Shaq AND Diego is the scale of a pony… so, objects in pic are bigger than they seem.
Methods to a Nice Confetti Egg Hunt:
- Discover 1 confetti egg and smash it in your hand OVER somebody’s head – NOT towards their head.
- Discover 1 confetti egg and rip off the paper masking the outlet to disclose the confetti inside. Then, sprinkle it on somebody’s head and sing the Unicorn Glitter Tune*.
- Discover 2 confetti eggs and smash them collectively OVER somebody’s head – once more, NOT towards their head.
And the principle trick to a contented confetti egg hunt is to just accept that there will probably be CONFETTI EVERYWHERE for some time. Despite the fact that we did it exterior and tried to shake it off as a lot as doable – it nonetheless sticks with ya.
It was on the ground, in the bathroom, on the mattress, even on the canine!!
Okay, it was on the canine as a result of I smashed one over his beautiful furry head. However don’t fear – no canines have been harmed within the making of this weblog put up.
Truly, it was the alternative of dangerous as a result of Golden Retrievers are nice household pets and Diego def thinks he’s a part of the fam. He would’ve felt unnoticed if I didn’t do it!!
I didn’t take any footage of the meals at our lil fiesta although… as a result of I used to be so busy choosing confetti out of it!
We ate earlier than the hunt festivities, I used to be simply busy serving to my mother get issues prepared. It was my brothers and nieces so we took turns enjoying with the ladies and getting the meals prepared.
However I do have a really Monican meals photograph for you…
Lately somebody requested in Insta Stories if I still eat dirty grapes (see that post for the answer).
If I don’t wash my grapes you would possibly guess that I additionally don’t wash every other fruits or veggies. And if that was your guess – you have been proper! Your prize is the satisfaction of guessing appropriately in a 50/50 scenario. Congrats.
Severely although… I don’t normally wash romaine until it seems to be soiled. And I really feel like currently I haven’t gotten a pack of soiled romaine for some time. So I didn’t actually discover this pack was soiled till I used to be chopping it and located the precise rock that shaped the Grand Canyon in my lettuce.
Fortunate for me (and the neighbors that wouldn’t heard my screams and been traumatized) I noticed this earlier than tossing it in my salad. Thank God. (… realizing that’s a phrase I ought to’ve mentioned earlier in a put up about Easter!)
So, I’ll be washing my romaine for the following couple of weeks till I overlook this occurred.
In happier meals information… I used to be craving a donut soooooooo a lot final week. I stored enthusiastic about it at random instances when it wasn’t handy to get a donut so I’d inform myself I’d get one the following day. And I lastly did. The tip.
Talking of the tip… I simply completed the e-book ‘It Ends With Us’ and need to chat about it. Have you ever learn it?
I actually am contemplating beginning or becoming a member of a digital e-book membership as a result of each time I end a e-book I need to speak about it. And I had loads of large emotions about this one. The evaluation will probably be up later this week.
At this time on the run I listened to The Crime Writers On podcast in regards to the Varsity Blues documentary and the At this time Defined podcast about Cicadas.
The Crime Writers On podcast evaluations (largely) true crime podcasts, documentaries, films and sequence (typically they cowl a drama sequence just like the one they urged that gave me such a foul night time terror that I’m fairly certain my ex and I are each traumatized by years later).
Anyway. I like their present after they don’t speak about something scary. For those who like true crime podcasts – test it out.
Once I bought again residence that episode was over so I made a decision to hearken to one thing a little bit shorter whereas I stretched and went with At this time Defined. They cowl tremendous attention-grabbing, random subjects… like Cicadas. I used to be simply curious as a result of I don’t know something about them.
Warning – Don’t pay attention whereas operating as a result of they’ve a number of audio clips that sound like an enormous bug is crawling from one facet of you to the opposite. It wouldn’t be a lil an excessive amount of whereas operating exterior. I’m glad I used to be stretching!
Warning Half 2 – Cicadas are coming in Could!!! So if you happen to reside in Cicada-ville (aka someplace that Cicadas reside) – head’s up that they’ll be visiting very quickly.
I reside in Southern California and there aren’t Cicadas right here however I’m at all times actually interested by all issues New England as a result of it appears so completely different and much away. For instance, I heard they’ve rain that will get so chilly it turns to ice!!?! Wild.
Since listening to this 1 podcast about Cicadas I’m just about an skilled, so LMK if in case you have any questions on them.
At this time I discovered… You possibly can eat Cicadas and so they gave some recommendations on the best way to collect them and cook dinner them.
However I’m not going to evaluate as a result of I virtually ate a clump of dust greater than any cicada!!! Please let me know if you happen to see one or eat one or go on a run with one.
