Five Friday Favourites

It's Friday, lovelies! Here's what's bringing us smiles around here...

1- We went to a circus party on what was probably the coldest day of the year (cue the extreme weather alerts). It was for 10 and 1 year old brothers and the kids had so much fun. A bubble-ologist, DJ, fresh pretzels and carnival games were just a few of the attractions! 

My friend is all about the beautiful details.

2- We are obsessed with Google Home. It's the best thing we've ever gotten for our house---- ummm, I mean for D for Christmas! From weather and news alerts, to meditation, to making shopping lists, to setting timers for time-outs, to telling us jokes, to the Just Like Fire Radio Station (the girls' pick), Google Home is making us very happy. To add to the win, I purchased it on major sale for Black Friday. A friend was looking at it now and it's almost $80 more!

3- This brussel sprout dip from The Minimalist Baker is a slightly healthier option in the new year and we've made it twice already! It has veggies.That must count for something! Never mind the cheese in it, never mind that at all.

4- Cold weather is 'good for you', says this article. Yay for no mosquitos and reduced inflammation! 


5- And because of cold weather last weekend, we booked a little vacay in March. Mayan Reviera, we are coming for you! Two months (and ten pounds) to go!!!
