Friday Favorites

Hi and happy Friday! Or should I say Fri-yay? I am late getting this post up today because I’ve been catching up around the house. Or at least trying to 😉 You know the little odds and ends… errands, shipping Etsy orders, laundry, cooking, cleaning, and playing with Sadie girl!

I couldn’t miss a Friday Favorites post, though, so here I am. Even if I still have a bunch of stuff to do today. Blogging is much more appealing 😬 Today I’m sharing my favorite things from the past week. Feel free to join in and share what’s making life good for you lately!

Saved For A Rainy Day

You know the concept of saving something for a rainy day? I took it pretty literally today. We woke up to rain here in Pittsburgh and everyone in our zoo was a little stir crazy.

Niva went to doggy daycare and I pulled out Sadie’s water painting mat that I’ve been saving for, well, a rainy day.

I’m not sure if Sadie or I had more fun playing with that thing. It’s pretty cool! 

Remember the $0.34 dress I mentioned buying at the thrift store? Here’s how it looks on Sader Tot. Also, she insisted on wearing rain boots that day even though it wasn’t raining 😉

Thankfully Jimmy didn’t have such long day at work yesterday! He came home and made a fort with Sadie while I got some real estate work done.

It always amazes me how he comes home from working nine hours and is ready to play the evening away. I also heard them pretending to sleep, so hopefully he got a little rest 😉

Last but not least, I want to introduce you to my new sourdough starter, Jethro.

I’ve been feeding him for about a week now and am hoping to bake my first loaf with him today or tomorrow. Can’t wait!
