Friday Favorites February 10 Edition
Here’s a little sneak peek into a few of the things I’m grateful for this week.
1. Hand-drawn pictures from my daughter.
Lady Elle loves to draw and I love to receive her masterpieces. Let me be honest though, many of them go in the trash. Yep, I’m not winning mother of the year over here. I only save the ones I really like, and trust me, I have a growing mountain in my closet. In general, I tend to gravitate to modern and abstract art. The color combination and composition of this piece makes this frame-worthy for me.
2. Blue Apron.
My first shipment of Blue Apron arrived at my doorstep this week and I’ve been having fun making and eating the meals. Recipes and reviews coming on the blog soon. As a teaser they were all vegetarian and paired really well with my past two wine reviews—the Conte Priola Pinot Grigio and MAN Free-Run Steen Chenin Blanc.
3. Clean bill of health at the dentist.
Lady Elle loves the dentist, I have an indifferent relationship with the dentist and my husband just plain out forgets about the dentist altogether unless I politely remind him (cue “nag”) about it. Lady Elle and I both had appointments this week. No cavities for either of us and my gums improved from my last visit. Whoop, whoop! That deserves cause for a glass of champagne or a little sugary piece of candy, just sayin’.
Have a great weekend, what are your plans?
