Happy Memorial Day weekend, Americans! This weekend, Annie’s softball team is playing in a softball tournament hosting by our league. It’s the 27th year of the tournament, which brings in 92 teams from all over Southern California. But 26 years ago, there were only about 10 teams…and I was on one of them. It’s fun to share this experience with her, all these years later!
Of course, even with a softball-filled weekend, we won’t forget to honor the brave men and women who fought for our country. We are so grateful for your service, especially the service of my father-in-law, an officer in the Navy.
Around The ‘Net
Last weekend, we took a quick break from softball to go to the Taylor Swift concert at the Rose Bowl. I’m not normally a fan of big outdoor stadium shows…you’re so far from the stage, and the sound is usually terrible. But I will grudgingly admit that Taylor and her crew did a very good job of making it feel like she was close to everyone. It was a surprisingly good show! Annie and her friends had a BLAST, and we moms enjoyed ourselves, too. Well done, Taylor.
~With James finishing school this week and Annie the week after, I’ve been shopping for teacher gifts. A friend of mine came up with the great idea to give her kids’ teachers letter boards. If any of you are interested, either for teachers or yourself, these 10 x 10 boards are only $14 right now — down from $50!
~Who has a weighted blanket? I hear they’re great for insomnia, but they are not cheap. I found this one for $69 and it has good reviews, but I’m still hesitant. If you have one, please tell me if you like it or not!
~I bought Annie a few different Overtone color conditioners to use over the summer. This weekend we used the vibrant blue color on the ends of her hair (her softball team’s color is royal blue). I was skeptical about how it would look on her brown hair but it’s really cool! And it washes out after a few shampoos. I also got the Rose Gold and the Vibrant Purple, so we’ll have fun playing with different colors this summer (pro-tip – buy the sample sizes!).
Happy Sunday, everyone!
