We should always find ways to celebrate the little things in life. What better day to celebrate these little things than the best day of the week? So, here are the things that make this a Fabulous Friday for me this week.
Given what is happening in DC today, we need all of the fabulousness we can get this week.
- Decisions, decisions – Connor and Jim are currently in Ames, Iowa visiting the campus of Iowa State University. Last week, Connor finally received his acceptance letter from his first choice, the University of Minnesota. However, given the scholarship he has already received from ISU, we are making him check out both campuses to get a feel for them both. I imagine by the time they return later tonight, Connor will have made the decision of where he ultimately go to school this fall. Will Ames and the ISU campus be enough to sway him from his first love? We shall see!
- Another chance to warm up – It looks like we didn’t need to go to Phoenix after all to warm up. All we had to do was stay home and wait a week! The temperatures this week have been creeping up to the point where we are supposed to be in the low 50s today and into this weekend. Time to mention yet again that this winter is just downright weird.
What makes this a Fabulous Friday for you?
Oohhh…the suspense! Keep us posted on what he chooses!
This winter is SO bizarre. My husband is getting his boat out and fishing this weekend!! In January, in Ohio. It’s so weird.
Have a great weekend!
I have no idea what he is going to choose!! I kept hoping I would know by the end of the weekend, but I don’t think he is any closer to making a decision than he was when he got home on Saturday. We will know soon enough though!
I fear we have not seen the last of odd weather patterns as we see the full effects of climate change. Sadly.
Winter is downright weird here, too!
It is pretty much everywhere these days. Climate change is only beginning too…
Oh! And I meant to mention that Jason actually did a summer program in Ames when he was between 8th and 9th grades, and he adored that campus. I think if his parents hadn’t pressured him to go to BYU, he would have gone there.
Jim, I think, was much more impressed with the campus than Connor was. Connor was thoroughly in love the urban campus of Minnesota, so that is going to be a difficult sell. However, his program at ISU is much more robust, with greater resources, more teachers, and more graduates in the program. I have no idea what he is going to end up selecting at this point in time.
50s?? Wow! I really didn’t think northern WI would be so vastly different from where we used to live in the Platteville area, but we’re only looking at mid-30s here. Not that I’m complaining. It’s lovely!
There can be quite a big difference between northern and southern parts of the state. The weather on Saturday was ridiculous. I didn’t even wear a coat!
