Friday Five

Here's to Friday in what in some ways has been the longest month of the year. Stay home, people so we begin to go out again!! Here's what's been going on with us....

1- Our sweet pup has been under the weather for the past couple weeks. What started as an ear infection, then became an ear flap infection that required a minor surgery which we then tagged his neutering to. He's been on antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and sedatives as well as wearing his cone of shame.... I drew the line at dog probiotics and gave him a spoon of yogurt. --- because a line had to be drawn somewhere...

While we are at it, let us take a look at all the dog selfies my family members take on my phone.

2- Thank goodness we got our Peloton and app when we did in November.  I've begun to listen to my body more and more as I get older... though I workout 6-7 days or week, if I want to do barre, pilates or yoga for an offday or a super short workout, the Peloton is great for that. Let me just say though, I've done spin in the gym and I consider myself pretty strong but boy do those cycling classes do me in!!!
Literally me....

3- My family's new vegetable obsession is cauliflower. We've always done the cauliflower but my kiddos have also started to eat it raw with hummus or roasted in the air fryer. I found the best recipe in the back of a Costco bag of cauliflower!

4- One good thing about quarantine is all the home cooking we're becoming even more proficient at. We bought some oysters the other day and instantly felt that we were  on Master Chef.

We brought it for the adults but guess who wanted to try it?

Doesn't look that great but we also did home-made sushi bowls, inspired by one of my friends who did it the week before. Also, the picture basically exhibits all the different parts of a typical Friday night here.... food check, wine check, a game check, a book check.... throw in some sugar and a tv show and we are in business!

We've also started to do lockdown Sunday brunches at our house. We squeeze some oranges, pull out our wedding china, some flutes and make a nice meal to start the week off right.

5- Also, take a look at this trouble maker when she isn't giving me grey hairs through  her online schooling...

She is a little extra but looks as sweet as pie in this pic, no?!

That's a wrap for January, friends! Have a good one!


  1. Your poor pup!!! I hope he gets to feeling better soon. I do not think I would be brave enough to try oysters. Those lockdown brunches look even more beautiful than a real restaurant. Enjoy your sweet family!

  2. I hope your pup is feeling much better! Lockdown Sunday brunches is such a great thing to do! Happy weekend sweetheart!

  3. We've been doing homemade sushi bowls too! I love cauliflower. For the longest time I've been having it for lunch, sort of as a nacho substitute. I microwave it, add cheese, tomato sauce, some chick peas, and a bit of ranch dressing!

  4. Keith went fishing in October and caught a bunch of tuna and he researched and make the best poke bowls!! Sweet pup...always makes me sad to see them in those cones

  5. Oh no your poor pup! Sending lots of hugs to feel better soon. That brunch looks delish! I headed out for brunch for what felt like the first time in forever, and it was so nice to see a few girlfriends. We are so fortunate that we can get together outside in the fresh air, and now today the temps dropped significantly! Eep! And lol at the cauliflower!

  6. Ohhhh, I am sorry to hear about your pup!!!! Hope he is feeling better soon.


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
