Inhale.... and exhale. We made it!
I always want to high-five people on Fridays. Whatever your week was made of... business reports, meetings, diaper changes, homework, washing dishes, serving a friend, etc. by Friday we are all ready for a change, a break, a high-five.
So, here's my virtual high-five for you:
1. If you've ever watched The Bachelor you HAVE to read this gal's weekly recap. She is hilarious. I haven't even watched the last few seasons but I always read her recaps. They are exactly the laugh I need on a Wednesday morning (which is when she posts them).
2. If you need a good cold-weather recipe, here is one I made this past week: Zuppa Toscana on Budget Bytes. It was really easy and so good. Mr. San Antonio requested that I make this a regular on our dinner rotation. It's basically a meal in and of itself and pretty filling. We just ate ours with some fresh bread, but if I wanted to make it lighter I would have served smaller portions and a big side salad (instead of trying to make the soup lighter itself - it's just so good the way it is!).
3. This face! Rufflebum fell asleep during rest time one day this week which meant I got a few minutes alone with this sweet girl and all I wanted to do was kiss her squishy nose. Seriously. She has the squishiest little nose and it takes all my self-control to not just kiss it and squish it all day long.
And this one has been requesting to play her "frozen game" when Burrow is sleeping. It's basically shoots and ladders "Frozen" edition. And let me just say this girl is the biggest cheater. And I totally let her cheat so we can move the game along a little faster! ;)
4. And my last high-five are two novels I recently read that I would highly recommend - if you are looking for a new fictional book to read:
Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
That's all I've got. I hope it doesn't bother you that I only have four "high-fives". Is it weird that it's bothering me?? I'm going to stay strong and stick with four. Maybe you can add your own "high-five" in the comments section and help me even this out? :)
Have a great weekend!
