A Touch of Sun

Pittsburgh was graced with temperatures in the high 50s/low 60s and a touch of sun yesterday and I felt like a new woman! Add in my mom watching Sadie for the day and I really felt spoiled 😊

First I took my girls on a Starbucks date (and made sure to get my mom some caffeine too because a day with Sadie requires it 😉). Niva enjoyed her puppuccino, Sadie ordered a vanilla milk, and my mom and I both got regular ol’ coffee.

Valentine’s Day Ideas + The Past Few Days

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

Recipe ideas:
Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers
Crepes
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. (more…)
