It’s Valentine’s Day week! I’m still not 100% sure what we’re doing to celebrate, but I have a few ideas 🙂
-Make themed treats, cards, and crafts to give to family and friends
–Family gift exchange: set a price limit ($10 or less) and draw a name out of a hat and buy a small gift for that person
-Cook a special meal, order takeout, or go out to eat (We did this in 2017 and 2018!)
-Watch a fun movie
–Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers
–Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo
–Raspberry Trifle (<– such a pretty dessert!)
–Triple Chocolate Nutella Cookies
–Honey Cinnamon Dog Treats for your pup!
The past few days have been full and fun. We went rollerblading on Saturday evening and had a great time with family and friends. Watching Sadie slip and slide around on tiny toddler-sized skates was pretty much the best.
We did school yesterday and learned that a narwhal’s tusk is actually a tooth. I’m still embarrassed to admit I didn’t know narwhals were real until 2011. I’m glad Sadie knows a lot sooner than me 😉
I also introduced Sadie to one of my favorite pastimes, watercoloring!
I don’t know why we haven’t watercolored sooner because it’s a lot less messy than using regular paint!
Other stuff from life lately:
-Still waiting to hear back on all of Sadie’s testing. We got a call yesterday and know for sure she’s anemic. This blows my mind because we had so many iron infusions together and a few while I was nursing her.
-My real estate work has been keeping me busy lately and I’m enjoying it.
-My sister hosted a Mary Kay party on Zoom last night and it was a fun way to spend a Monday evening.
-Pittsburgh got quite a bit of snow overnight! I’m currently diffusing this and this while I look out the window and sip coffee. Cozy!
