Went out for dinner to celebrate our 11 years together.  We went to Nineteen in St. Albert.  Food was wonderful, service was great, wine was delicious, table was OK.  




Made this delicious one pot pasta.  Amazing and so simple!


Beet chips are beautiful.  The after effects can be terrifying.  


Puddles galore this week.  I need some rainboots stat!  I fit Riley’s but that is not a long term solution.  Was thinking this pair or this pair.  Thoughts?  Also, so in love with these.  They will be mine very shortly I think!


I made meatballs for Italian wedding soup.


Post is late because this is FINALLY happening!!!

Have a wonderful first week of February.

Started the week off right by going for Pho.  My favourite dinner when it is super cold like it was this past weekend (feels like -35c!).


I saved these from going to the garbage.  I don’t have a record player.  Details.  


I made muffins.  So good.


I’ve been quite enjoying doing this lately.  It’s fun to do with the boys.  I’m not sure it’s relaxing but they love doing it with me so we’ll keep doing it.  


Butter tarts.  Oh yes.  


My shadow on the way to do school pick up.

Went to Ikea this week.  These followed me home, they always do.  


11 years.  To celebrate we bought new silverware.  Although it’s stainless steel.  


Volunteered at school this week.  It’s fun and I love all the little faces.  

See ya next week!

Sunday night the Grandparents came over for dinner and board games.  Trying to have more family dinners.


I made baked beans this week.  Used this recipe.  It’s a winner.


Have been eating far too many of these this week.  I think my lunch time smoothies are encouraging me to need more salt.  


Reading this book, it’s fantastic so far.  I read a lot of YA so that Riley and I can talk about them but everyone once and awhile you need something adult, and dark.  


I love it when the frost hangs on the trees.  Winter is so quiet and when it’s like this, beautiful as well.  


Thursday we walked home in a snowglobe.  I loved it.  


I’ve been trying to enjoy the winter time and have a more positive attitude about the short daytime.  It think it’s helping.  These candles are helping it to be more cozy.  


We aren’t sure, but we think she may be getting ready to leave us.  I don’t think we are ready.  

These socks, on repeat.  I wash them and put them back on.  Best socks ever.
