Hey there Friday!

Hello lovelies! I haven't done one of these posts in what seems like forever…. last year to be exact! Time to catch up….

1- Remember earlier this week  when I had all these grand ambitions for hot water, stove and more unpacked boxes… well believe it or not, check, check and check…. things are happening around here and though no one wants to see an HVAC system, here's a brand new shiny cook-top for ya'….

PS. Along with this thing comes a downdraft which I'd never seen before but is pretty cool. We lost two drawers beneath the stove when all was installed--- but hey, there's cooking around here! Spaghetti with veggies for the win after excessive usage of the slow cooker, microwave and oven!

2- As I was in full on domestic mode, I also made these amazing flourless peanut butter chocolate chip mini- muffins for the kids to mix up our morning menu…. thanks Salma!

3- Back when I was in the corporate world and travelling lots with an awful commute and a toddler--- we had a part-time housekeeper…. we parted ways when she married and migrated but she came to visit-- catch up, help me unpack and even volun-told her husband to help us with some of the trickier painting in our house for FREE! (he's a painting contractor for luxury homes)--- total score!! Aren't there wonderful souls out there?!



4- And speaking of painting and many visits to our very nearby Home Depot--- my girls are obsessed with the colour swatches and always walk away with many samples! 

5- I've only recently stumbled upon Lou & Grey and I've only bought a couple of their pieces when LOFT had a huge sale but I adore their stuff…. so.very.comfy! Their flipside leggings have been on repeat ever since I got them! 

Have a wonderful weekend, friends! Ours involves odds and ends in our new home, drinks, dinner and some Superbowl fun!
