Wrap up and on to June

So I have completely slacked out the last couple of months, but I am moving right along in the challenge. Finished a couple of things and it has been cool to revisit and revamp the list. I am really slow on the movies and books - but of course I knew those would be the longest and most involved part of the challenge. 

Since we last met, I:
  • Wrote a Love Letter to my Husband
  • Wrote a Living Will 
  • Cooking: Made Marshmallows and Eggs Benedict
  • Bible: Read Exodus and started Leviticus

Continuing on with my "Drink List", this month I tried: 
Peppermint Hot Chocolate: This was tasty. Hot chocolate with a little peppermint 3 stars 
White Hot Chocolate: This one was a little sweeter than all of the others, but overall, tasted like their original hot chocolate. 3 stars
Caramel Frappuccino: Good, but of all the frappuccinos I've tried, I wouldn't go out of my way for this one. 2 stars
Mocha Coconut Frappuccino: New to their menu this month, the BEST drink I have tasted so far. 3 stars

My goals for June: 
  • #45 Make Soap
  • #55 Go one month without buying anything that is not a necessity
  • #60 Make a Cosmo Sheik Cocktail

Thanks for following along!

#34 Write a Love Letter to my Husband

Since our 5 year (really, wow!) anniversary was around the corner, I figured this would be the best time to complete this challenge.

I had written a love poem for him before, but it was more on the funny side, so I decided to do a more serious love letter to commemorate our 5 YEAR anniversary. Time sure does fly doesn't it? Nothing too fancy, but straight from the heart. I knew he would never see this coming because this is not something that we (maybe not a whole lot of people) do on a regular basis. I was right.

He loved it, I got praises and kisses. I also got the added pleasure of making him feel guilty because he didn't think of it first. Ha! Have you ever written a love letter to your special someone? How was it received?

#34. Done.
