Month in Review: May 2018


Compared to April, May was a pretty quiet month around here.  We did a LOT of yard work, and now I'm obsessed with trying to keep my potted plants alive.  We saw Deadpool 2 and loved it; we also watched The Week Of on Netflix, which is a comedy about the week leading up to a wedding and stars Adam Sandler.  People like to knock Adam Sandler, but for some reason, I seem to love all of his movies!  Speaking of weddings, I got up early and watched the royal wedding; while I wasn't crazy about Meghan Markle's dress, I loved all the flowers (especially the fact that Harry picked flowers for her bouquet himself!) and the weather looked beautiful.  We had a big BBQ on Memorial Day, and everyone had a great time - we also had our first houseguest when my SIL stayed over during her visit to NJ.

  2. It sounds like you had a good month. I didn’t watch the wedding because sleep is too important, but I saw the highlights. It was all very pretty and sweet.

  3. Sounds like you had a wonderful month. I too watched that Royal Wedding as well. I wasn't crazy about the dress either but it was still pretty. My favorite part was the part that Prince Harry picked he's mom's favorite flower and put it all over the church as well as in Megan's bouquet!!! (My eyes may have gotten a little misty)Love anything Royal! I hope you have a great weekend. �� xoxo

    1. Thanks, Helena! Yes, I get teary-eyed thinking about that as well! I love the little touches they picked to honor Diana.

  5. Sounds like you had a great month! I didn't get up early enough to watch the Royal Wedding but paid attention to all of the coverage after the fact. I liked Meghan's dress okay, but I will say that I preferred her reception dress. I liked that halter style on her.

    1. Yeah, the halter dress was definitely more modern. I actually thought her ceremony dress would look very similar to what it ended up being - I thought she would do off-the-shoulder and very streamlined, but I thought both dresses would have a little more oomph. I guess there are guidelines they have to follow, though!

  6. I did watch the Royal Wedding! My mom's birthday was actually the same day, so we made an event out of it and tried our hands at an "English" breakfast. Basically, it was just a normal breakfast on fancy china, haha! :)

  7. Oh no - I did not watch the wedding. Listen - I don't pay them taxes for all that hub-bub. They are cute together, yes. I wish them well but pay no mind. Have a great week!

    1. It was fun! Maybe a little heavy-handed at times with the whole nerd thing, but I enjoyed it.

  10. I did not watch the wedding, but I felt like I was there with how much of my feeds it occupied. Thanks for you mention of my post. <3

  11. I need to watch the wedding still! I saw that it is available on Hulu, so I may watch it eventually. The dress was a bit bleh, I will agree with you on that! It sounds like you had a busy month. Enjoy your garden and your next month of reading. :)

    1. Ah, so glad I'm not the only one who felt that way about the dress!

      Thank you!

  12. I didn't know Adam Sandler was in a new movie...I tend to enjoy his movies as well! Ooo - did you like Ready Player One? I need to read it immediately and then watch the movie! Lol.

    1. I did like Ready Player One, both the book and movie! We saw the movie first. They were pretty different!

  13. Wow! What a great month! I'm slowly managing a catch up on my blog (I've gone from being two months behind to only one!) so it's been a good June for me so far. I hope yours is turning out well! 😁
