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."
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 :)
