Five on a (Freezing!) Friday

Happy Weekend! We have snow in the forecast and this California girl could not be more excited. Here's what we've been up to in this chilly weather...

1. Eating Soup!

Some time ago, Little Baby Garvin shared a chicken noodle soup recipe that included homemade noodles. The actual soup recipe is super similar to one that my MIL makes (chicken stock, carrots, celery and rotisserie chicken) so I already had lots of practice making it (but my MIL also adds a ton of tarragon, dill, and parsley which totally amps it up). The homemade noodles, however, were something I had never tried and they were so much fun, and super easy (no pasta maker attachment required). I made the soup and noodles again this week on our chilliest day, and couldn't help myself from turning the carrots into sweet hearts!
I blame my new Starbucks reusable cup. It's having me feel all sorts of pink heart festive, even though I promised myself no Valentine goodness until February first.




2. Grocery Shopping with my Littlest Helper

This guy cracks me up! He was on a mission this week at the grocery store, picking up whatever he could reach and putting it in his cart like "I got this, Mom."


3. Layering
I felt so very Pinterest-y piling all this on one morning (with a coat before we left the house) - layers are our friend in the semi-freezing rain (as well as Hunter rain boots!).

4. Streaming Gilmore Girls


We are still television-less for Parker's sake, but once he goes down for a nap in the afternoon you can usually find this early 2000's goodness playing on my computer while I'm folding laundry/cleaning the kitchen/prepping dinner. Have I mentioned I'm twelve kinds of excited about the new Netflix spin-off???

5. Pure Barre-ing

What better way to stay warm than a little lift tone burn at Pure Barre? I've been pretty consistent with going 3-4 times a week, which is what they recommend, but I also smile whenever I pass the barre I got to sign for taking twenty classes in twenty days! Next up, the 100 club :)

  1. I'm watching Gilmore Girls for the firs time right now thanks to Netflix. I think I'm on season 3. Thanks for the reminder that I need to fit in some GG time this afternoon.

  2. So jealous of Pure Barre! I cannot make it to a class because of our schedule! That soup looks DELICIOUS, especially today! My ears hurt from the cold, just walking from my car!!

    1. Sometimes the 5:45AM class is my only option because I know both boys will be sleeping at home!! I totally crash way early on those days though :)

  5. I love that your soup had hearts in it! I have watched the series of GG multiple times and it is still one of my favorites! Woohoo on the 20 in 20 milestone. I have been loving my Barre3 DVDs recently.

    1. Such a good idea to do it from home! I don't think I would hold myself accountable like the group classes do, though, ha!
