Fabulous Friday Five

Here's what's been happening in these parts! 

1- Girls night 
Girls night out was awesome this past Friday with my friends Jenn and Carla. Thai food, white wine and Mamma Mia, a good time does make!

2- Lime Juice?
I found this amazing smoothie recipe and I've been making a version of it most weekdays. It's all about the lime juice, I tell you! I mix up the fruits and throw in some spinach but the coconut water, yogurt and lime juice are constant. I bought the big bag of Costco limes to make sure I have my stock on hand.

3- Some TLC
My parents came to visit for C's birthday and ended up staying for a couple extra days. We all had a wonderful time. We chatted lots with them, my kids went with them on different outings, they cooked all our favourites and my kids had more ice cream than I'd care to think about. We always are a bit sad when they leave. C suggested that they live with us instead. 

4- Kitchen Aid Mixer Sale
Who here has heard of Woot? I got this Amazon email stating that my Kitchen Aid stand mixer had gone on super sale and directed me to this website. Got my mixer for about 2/3's of the price.
Speaking of sales, I also got this console on major sale to work as a very simple desk for me.

5- Family Night Out..
The day before C's birthday, we went out with my parents, my brother and his family and our four to dinner. Though I neglected to take a picture of the entire table, here are a few shots of the birthday girl.

Little Miss slept for a huge part of the meal?

If ever there is a flourless chocolate cake on the menu, I find it very hard to resist...

I hope there's something sweet planned for your weekend too!

  7. What fun and yay for your mixer!!! That cake looks delish!

  8. Sounds like you got a steal on your mixer!!! I use mine ALL the stinking time. I really want a glass bowl for it but $100 is a dang expensive bowl. Especially when you think that it could break!


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
