Friday 5

Friday 5

Valentine's Day is the carrot that gets me through dreary January and I enjoy putting a few little decorations around the house. I picked up the pink and white versions of these placemats last year but was excited to see the white and black ones this year! Target $1 spot never disappoints! 

I've written about these cookies before and I stand behind that they're the very best you'll ever eat. The cookies are massive and each batch only makes about 16 cookies, which means I need every. stinking. one of them. I made two batches for Justin to take to work for his annual cookie competition and fought off the kids pleading to have one. I did give in and let them split one (again - they're big!) but promised to make another batch next week just for us. If you have some time, check the link for the recipe! 

I don't know what these purple flowers are, but they've been a nice touch mixed in with the greens of the eucalyptus. I try to pick some up every time I go to Trader Joe's because 1. it makes the house smell like a spa, 2. each bouquet is only $2.99, and 3. I need touches of living color when it's so cold and gray out! It really does perk things up. Give it a try! 

Vaughn started bullet journaling, something I admire but could never do or keep up with. She's worked really hard on it and I'm amazed with her creativity! Google 'bullet journaling' to see what it's all about!

It's been a tough week for Minnie the faux mini goldendoodle. Freezing temps and rain have really put a hurting on her walks and overall outside time so she's taking in out on us. What is pictured are my AirPods (I know because of the tiny purple dot on each of them - we have to tag everything because kids) after Vance left them out of the case so he could charge his. (He lost his case so needs mine to charge his.) (Again, kids.) Later on that day, Minnie found another pair of earphones and destroyed those, boosting her life total for number of earphones eaten to a healthy 5 pairs. Because of this, and all the other stuff she's destroyed this week, she spent yesterday at dog school, reviewing her commands, playing with buddies, and working some aggression out on the treadmill. She came home dog tired and napped until it was time for bed. Now, that's the dog we wanted! 😁

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Cheers!
