5 on Friday--More Snow!

Besides being my birthday week, it's just been another cold, snowy, below normal temps week which means lots of time inside and even more dreaming of warmer Spring temps.  I think most schools in our area have now missed the total number of days required by the state in order to not make any more up...ughhh...winter I think it's time for you to go back where you came from and send some Spring temps in your place!

Enough moaning about winter...how about another five on friday?!?

1.  With lots of snow still on the ground and below-freezing windchills, Elyse & I were at home all day on Wednesday with no plans. She stayed in her jammies for most of the day & we had quite the snow day tea party.  Mike, Sully, Jake, & Pink Kitten were all invited...notice Mike is sitting on Jake's lap.  She is cracking me up these days with her imagination!

  2.  For Christmas, Elyse & I got two different gift certificates for swim lessons at a local aquatics center.  We were supposed to start up on Wednesday night, but with the crummy weather they were pushed back to next week! I'm super excited for Elyse to be back in the swimming pool & hopefully she'll have some serious skills by the time that summer finally decides to show back up!  I have a feeling she's going to have come a long way from the little girl that was in the pool last year!
3. The Biggest Loser wrapped up this week, and while there was certainly some backlash surrounding the final results...I'm just super proud of Marie Pearl!  She was attending our Zumba class back in the Spring before she headed off to the ranch (and has been back a few times since returning home) & I couldn't be more excited for the life-changing experience she just had! In fact, she actually surprised us all by showing up to class last night...she looks amazing and is such an inspiration to us all!  Way to go Marie!

4.  We're heading out for a little family getaway tomorrow, all 3 of us...and I'm super excited.  We're gonna be gone less than 48 hours, but I'm just excited for some alone time away from home...in a hotel room...eating out on some yummy food...with my two favorite people in the entire world!  
An oldie for sure...but one of my favorite pics of them ever!

5.  I might have caved and bought Elyse & I semi-matching hoodies to wear for Valentine's Day....I'm not normally obsessed with matching her, but they were too cute to pass up! 
Head on over to April's blog to see all the other fabulous ladies who participate in 5 on Friday!  There's a ton of us!
