Honestly I am pretty happy school is over. I am ready for the freedom summer brings.
I thought about how I wanted to spend my last few days of alone time and really there wasn’t much I wanted to do. I did enjoy a last leisurely shopping trip to Target. I went primarily to get a gift for E’s teacher but it was nice to just browse around and pick up a few odd items.
I bought some of those removable decals, one set of the Eiffel tower to decorate my closet doors and some glow in the dark stars and moons for my son’s ceiling. I hope they stick okay since the ceiling has a slight texture to it. I put up enough to surprise him tonight and if they seem to be sticking okay we can add more together. I also got an oversize badminton set which I hid in the back yard. I decided to get the oversized set so I would a have a fighting chance to return the birdie once in awhile.
I also picked up a new eyeshadow. It is such a small thing, I don’t wear much makeup, especially in the summer when we are swimming all the time but I saw this group of colors that I really loved and I went for it. I can’t remember the last time I bought eyeshadow and for some reason this tiny treat felt like quite the, well treat.
Tonight for dinner we are having ice cream and cake with chicken nachos for dessert. I think I am more excited about the start of summer vacation then my son is but I am sure he will get over it!
I made a chocolate wacky cake, iced it with leftover vanilla frosting and sprinkled chocolate chips on top so the cake matched the chocolate chip ice cream we had with it.
