Musings and All Sorts of Randomness

Whew. I’m in the midst of a busy few weeks and my introverted self is just white knuckling my way through! We’ve had a lot of random things going on: taxes, appointments, gatherings, meetings, blah, blah, blah. All good things, but just a lot at once, you know?

My brain is kind of short-circuited, so here are some musings and random pictures for your enjoyment.

Father and daughter washing truck together

Could these two be any cuter? Sadie in a little floral romper (I’m having a *moment* with dressing her in rompers and jumpsuits, okay?) helping her daddy wash his truck. Oh, and our grass is green and our dogwood trees are blooming.

My little happy place. My favorite people ❤️

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…)
