Friday mish-mash

Happy Friday. No school in these parts today due to extreme cold weather alert. After the week we had,  our day will be filled with snuggles, tv and maybe a craft or two… And mama needs to clean up! And do some work…. but maybe we'll wait for next week for that one. 

Here's the stuff that's being going on around here.

1- Valentine's playdate

We had a few friends come over for a playdate this Valentine's Day. Super simple. Think dollar store crafts, Valentines muddy buddies and cupcake decorating. Everyone bought an appetizer and we ordered pizza for dinner. Pretty easy and the kids had a great time. 

2- Trini Pool Party- Carnival Sunday- Food Fest

This weekend was Carnival in Trinidad. However, it was -39 here. Thank the Lord for Joann who invited about 50 of us over for a (heated and indoor) pool party at her condo. The company was great, there were Trini soca tunes and the-food-was-a.m.a.z.i.n.g- Jo is a phenomenal cook.!! And she always packs us up with tons of leftovers. #truefriend #didntneedtocookallweek

3- Chocoholic no more

I'm not a Christian but I have great respect for the tenets of Christianity. This Lent, I'd like to give abstaining from something a try…. and I've chosen--- wait for it…. chocolate to give up until April. Anyone who reads this blog for more than a minute knows that it's kind of a big deal for me. Let's see how that goes…

4- Snuggle Time

I've got to admit, the best part of my kids being sick is that I get all these sweet snuggles from two otherwise very active kiddos. Of course I got sick as a result but I just love all the cuddle time in this cuddle friendly weather.

5- Smile a bit
And because I can't seem to ever stop talking about the weather these days.

That was me this weekend. D was a champ though.

But not chocolate ice-cream

Have a good one, friends!

Linking up with lots of people.

  1. I think it's great that you are going to try to give up Chocolate!! Good luck girl! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  2. So much yummy food! Good luck with your lent goal. That'd be a tough one for me too (understatement of the year).

  3. Oh, I have given up chocolate for several years. Good for you :) I tend to then gorge on Easter. Your photos are gorgeous, especially the one of you and your little sweetie! Hope you are having a great weekend! xoxo

  4. Chocolate?!?! Aaaahhhhh that would be a TOUGH one for me. Good luck friend.

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

  5. The Valentine's Day party looks like a lot of fun! Makes me want to make cupcakes!

  6. That Trini party sounds like so much fun!! Love the pic of you and your little one - hope everyone is on the mend. I can totally relate to the meme about being sick is all fun and games until you no longer live with your mom. Haha! How true is that?! Take care!


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
