Five Friday Favourites.

This week has been a bit of a short week, what with the April snow day (!) and all! We are so looking forward to the weekend though. Rumour (i.e. the meteorologist)  has it that actual spring weather is a-coming.

1- C's actual birthday was on a Tuesday. Though  actual life still went on (school and work), we did manage to sneak in some fun with some birthday pancakes, presents and a nice dinner out. We've started doing just a massive cupcake for the girls' actual birthdays if they have a party on another day and so far we love it. Just a small bite of sweetness after a usually treat laden day. 

We got her the boxed Harry Potter collection and a new Garmin Vivo and they were both hits!

2- I can't wait for the Sephora VIB sale coming out today to order some favourites. I'm in the market for a new eyebrow pencil and face oil. 

3- A has started to growl when she is mad... The verdict is still out as to if it's a favourite or not but it is certainly funny.
She was so proud of her multiplication tiles, she wanted me to take a pic of it. (Definitely a favourite)

Also a favourite, is A going shopping for C's birthday present (a C espresso cup and some madeline erasers) and giving her $20 after still. Now she has no more money of her own but is so happy to be giving to her sister.

4- We are obsessed with these dumplings from Costco. We put them in a boiling broth for 1-3 minutes, grate some fresh ginger and chop some cilantro and throw in some sesame oil and it makes a great lunch or light dinner!!!

5- Now that the US tax season is done, I'm finding a little extra time to do some spring cleaning.... It certainly looks worse before it gets better, doesn't it?!

Have a good weekend, lovelies!

Caroline and April for Five on Friday!
