Friday Favorites: Starting the Weekend Early

Happy Friday!!

This weekend is a nice, extra long weekend for me πŸ™‚ YAY for an extra day off!!

Here is a little glimpse at my day and some of my favorite things that I did on my Friday off.

Guess who is training for a half marathon?! It’s happening in just under a month. So… I’ve been doing some practice half marathons around my neighborhood. And by some, I mean two. This is my second one. It think my legs are slowing starting to catch on to this long distance running thing.


What is a day off without a treat! After my run I stopped for a coffee and then headed over to the library to renew my library card. Turns out library cards are now free! YES! Books, books, and more books!!


And last but not least, a trip to Costco. You are looking at a brand new Costco member!!


Well. If you’re trying to find me, I’ll be reading my library books and enjoying my first purchase as a Costco member!


Enjoy your weekend!




Valentine’s Day Weekend

imageAnother Valentine’s Day come and gone.

It was too fun with this weekend not only being Valentines day…

…But also a long weekend! YAY!

Which was THE BEST!!

That means the celebrations start early and last the entire weekend.

So, here is Valentine’s/Family Day weekend according to my camera roll πŸ™‚

Friday after work my husband brought home these beautiful roses ❀ imageAnd then we settled in for a movie night and some heart shaped pizzas.imageimage

Saturday we headed out for brunch with my parents, the food was too good, which means there wasn’t a chance for pictures before we gobbled it all down.

Sunday. Valentine’s Day started with breakfast in bed made by my husband πŸ™‚ Crepes and fresh berries.


It has been really nice considering its February, so we tried to fit in a bit of a walk in the afternoon… which didn’t last all that long because of the wind. So, we ended up at the mall and bought a few chocolates as a treat, and some yummy tea.image


Sunday night = Date night. We got all dressed up and headed to our absolute favorite restaurant.


…Which meant pizza again… because you can never have too much!! And of course some ‘valentines’ cheesecake to end the meal.


And today has been this: Rest. Chocolate macaroon tea (SO good). And an attempt at cross stitching… I’ll let you know how it goes.

Happy Monday!


Friday Favorites: Top 5 of the Week

IMG_4698Happy Friday!!

I’m super excited for the long weekend this weekend, YAY πŸ™‚

We have some date ideas, and lots of rest, sleeping in and relaxation planned for this weekend.

Well…I’ve been sick this week… which is not so much fun.

So, my Friday Favorites today are a bit different. Here are some of my ‘favorite’ thingsΒ  when I am sick…the things that help me get better quick!!


  1. Tea… lots of it!! I especially love mint or anything with ginger, add inΒ  a bit of honey and lemon, perfect for a sore throat.

2. Fisherman’s friends. I’ve gone through a few packs of these. These are the best.

3. Lots and lots of soup. A good way to get extra liquids, and once again nice and soothing for a sore throat.

4. And finally SLEEP. I find the best thing to do is get extra rest.


And finally my last ‘favorite’ from this week is my kind husband ❀

He’s been running out to get me medicine, cough drops, soup, juice,Β  the extra soft kleenex, and anything else I could need or want.

He has been making me lots of tea and soup πŸ™‚

And has been brightening my days with little gifts and thoughtful notes!

He is just the best!!

Hope you enjoy your weekend!!
