Ahhh, what a lovely day, I got so much accomplished and I found out that I don't have to take summer classes to be on track with my major. Pheww, what a relief! Accelerated chemistry was not sounding fun. I decided to go to the grocery store and pick up a frozen pizza for lunch. I've had my heart set on a frozen pizza for awhile. Weird? Oh well. A frozen pizza while watching and old movie on a rainy April day sounds like a good time to me.

Hello, and welcome to another sporadic edition of Things I Love Thursdays. Uhm, so maybe this won't be a weekly feature, but I still like doing them. Without further ado...
I know it might sound disgusting, but Peeps flavored Rita's is delish. Believe me, I was a doubter at first too.
Super cute pom pom tutorial. I like pom poms, I think you get a lot of bang for your buck.
Who wouldn't want to stitch up some of these funny veggies? They would be oh so nice on some dish towels. I think the tomato must be repulsed at the idea of eating vegetables, a type of cannibalism to him. Technically he is a fruit though, just saying...

Currently I am taking a Children's Literature class and was assigned to read Ramona and Her Father. Growing up I absolutely loved the Ramona series by Beverly Cleary and I especially like the early illustrations of some of her books done by Louis Darling.

This assignment led me to my nearby library to check out several more Ramona books that I remember liking so well from my childhood. I feel a little funny checking out so many children books, but the assigned reading caused me to remember just how much I really like Beverly Cleary.
I decided to write her a letter thanking her for her contribution to children's literature.
The original Ramona, she has since gone through a few makeovers to keep up with the times, but this original version will always be my favorite.
I am doing a presentation on this book. You could say I'm going through my childhood Ramona craze all over again. And that's okay with me.
