Monthly Recap! May 2017

Posted June 6, 2017 by Wendy in recap / 4 Comments

And just like that, it’s June aka SUMMER! I seriously feel like we skipped spring here in the Pacific NW and jumped straight into summer. We just had a looong gray, dreary winter, NO spring weather whatsoever and then we suddenly got some hot weather over Memorial weekend! I’m so ready for the sun!!

Favorite Things in May:

I had an absolutely lovely time going to Jenny Han’s signing for Always and Forever, Lara Jean! I seriously enjoyed this series so much, I loved getting all the high school feels and nostalgia. I even channeled my inner Lara Jean and baked funfetti cupcakes (recipe in the back of Always and Forever!) and my take on the “perfect” chocolate chip cookie to bring for Jenny! Jenny was seriously so sweet and fun to talk to and she even put me on her Instagram story! EEEP! It was so much fun.

Month in Review:

I feel like I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but I’m going to be better about blogging soon! Things have been pretty crazy busy lately but I miss blogging more regularly! I’m making it a priority!

    • I read the first book for the first time recently! I didn’t love it like everyone else… BUT I’m eager to finish out the series and see what I think!

  1. The weather has been exactly the same in England! Dreary all the way through Winter and Spring, and suddenly it became ultra hot. Now it’s raining again though, the weatherman just can’t make his mind up!

    I’m so glad you enjoyed Jenny Han’s series, I love it so much! So envious that you got to meet her. Making Funfetti Cakes is so sweet too. ^.^

    • They were delicious! And guess what, since this post, we have sunk right back into dreary rain again. It’s almost July! Whhyyy!
