Life + Random

Hello friends! Happy hump day! I thought I would get caught up and fill you in on some life happenings and some random tidbits as of late. January and February have been a bit of a blur with my parents staying with us, my trip to Singapore, and lots of sickness around here. I think everyone had the flu (except Steve), and poor Drew threw up at school just a week after recovering from influenza. Happy to report we are all healthy and hope to stay that way until next winter!

Speaking of winter, I'm ready for it to end. I guess I can't complain too much about our weather. We've barely had any snow and no snow days, it's more for me about seeing green, flowers and trees in bloom, and feeling the sunshine on my skin for longer than 3 seconds at a time! I've been pretty good this winter about having fresh flowers in the house to freshen things up. I pick them up for less than $5 a bunch and it is a complete mood changer for me.

Clean A Cutting Board Using (2) Ingredients

We have a large, round cutting board that sits on the corner of our kitchen island. It only ever gets moved to clean it and clean under it. I use this cutting board multiple times a day. One of the most helpful things I ever did in the kitchen was to keep a large cutting board sitting out on my island, where I prep food. Not having to fiddle in a drawer for a cutting board multiple times a day makes this momma happy. This little corner space works perfectly because it's right beside the trash drawer (in the island), and it's near my stove/oven.

More Dining Room Updates

I swear this room has had furniture in it since the time we moved in, but I just can't ever seem to get the styling/walls the way I want them! It's a syndrome for every room in my house, but the dining room is really close to being done. Close, I tell you!

Father Daughter Dance / Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

I thought it was appropriate to post about Kate's recent F/D dance on this day of love. I volunteered to co-chair the Father/Daughter Dance at my kids' elementary school this year with a good friend of mine. It took some time and planning, and lots of logistics, but everyone had a great time, and I know a certain little Kindergartner who loved going on a date with her Dad!

My friend had just gotten back from Paris when we were coming up with a theme, and we thought it would be girly and sweet and fun to plan "A Night in Paris" dance. Think pink/black/white, feathers, Eiffel Towers, pearls, polka dots, and lots and lots of sweet treats!
