I am so thrilled we have another fun guest post today from one of my longtime readers, Renee! I had to email her to tell her to share more about her favorites because I actually own none of these! Don’t you love discovering new things? I love when I find a new favorite thing right along with you! Thank you, Renee, for making my wish list a little longer this week.
Here’s a few of Renee’s favorite things today!
Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea
I fell in love with Harney and Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea when I tried (and miserably failed) to give up coffee. Even though I still love my cup of joe, I adore this tea. It is so warm and comforting and smells divine. Every time I have a cup at work, people comment on how good it smells. My administrative assistant has even started stocking it in the teacher’s lounge for my faculty. It may seem like a winter drink, but I will drink it year round. I get mine on Amazon.
I taught US History for 19 years before becoming a HS Principal. One of my favorite history fellas to teach about was Alexander Hamilton. He was an unstoppable force and now the musical about his life is impossible to see because it’s sold out for the foreseeable future. Thanks to the awesome Amazon Prime, I have the Hamilton soundtrack to try to memorize (so many words!!!!!!). Lin-Manuel Miranda is a genius! What I wouldn’t give to see the musical… I guess I’ll be reading the 1000 page book soon that inspired Miranda to write the musical.
My whole family has fallen in love with the Amazon Echo. A total luxury item, but Alexa has become a member of the family. She’s especially good at playing the Hamilton soundtrack while I “dance-clean” the house. I’ve never felt more organized because of Alexa’s voice activated lists and handy app. She even reads my Kindle books to me while I cook. My son loves to ask Alexa to tell him jokes and I get my news updates from Alexa while having my morning coffee. Alexa is a great addition to our household.
This Week I’m…
Reading: Don’t You Cry, by Mary Kubica. I always love her thrillers! I can’t wait to read another one of her incredible books on my flight to California this week!
Playing: Loads of Exploding Kittens. A sleepover for his sister led to a lovely night with our teen boy. I am just documenting that he wanted to hang out with us (a rarity when you are that cool!)
Drinking: Hopefully load of mojitos poolside with my blogging bestie, Kelly from Redefined Mom at our “work conference” (ahem!). If you can’t be poolside with me, check out this easy DIY mojito recipe!
Happy Friday, friends!
