Three Things Thursday: Nifty Desserts, A Rat Rod, & Flowers Attacked with Laser Beams



Welcome back to Three Things Thursday, a way to fill your blogs and social media with the happy!


Three Things Thursday is a simple concept that everyone is encouraged to play along with. All it requires is listing three (or more!) things that are making your life awesome. Please note! The three things you choose each week do not need to be big, huge, mighty, impressive things. In fact, I think it’s much better to focus on smaller, sillier things…because focusing on those little bits of joy and the gigglesnorts that they bring…well, that’s where day-to-day contentment lives, I believe.


So, how do you participate? Easy as falling off a log! Whip up a blog post about three things that are making you smile…then share it on the link up in this post. Don’t want to do a whole blog post? Feel free to post some pictures on Facebook or Instagram! If you tag me in your pictures, I 100% promise to give them appropriate love.❤


Just one more thing! Three Things Thursday posts actually don’t need to be done on Thursdays! I leave the link up active for the whole week every week…so you can be grateful on your own schedule.🙂


Okay, here we goooooo…





I absolutely loved the desserts for the Sweeney Todd Dinner Theatre! While we had the main courses and sides catered, the desserts were provided by two awesome moms who bake, Bev and Liz. The dessert spread was a lovely mixture of British treats and appropriately gruesome grub. 😀

On a non-Sweeney Todd note (whaaaaat?), I attended a PTSO meeting earlier this week that highlighted the school’s Auto Tech Academy. Those brilliant, amazing kids have built a rat rod…and it runs and everything (very, very loudly, I might add)! They’ll be entering it in a rat rod competition of some sort soon, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for them. 🙂

We had some leftover flowers from all of the school events, so I snagged some to pretty up the house a bit. I was rather amused at how this picture turned out…it looks as though the sun has some sort of personal grudge against these particular flowers or something. 😉

      I was not even familiar with their existence as a thing until Monday evening…now I’m quite enchanted! 🙂 It’s all so resourceful and clever and cool looking…very Fallout 4. 😀
