A Peek at My Week... 4!

Made some salads... tried brussel sprouts for the first time & liked them!  Next week I'll share the recipes I used.
Valentine's day treats from my Mom & Dad, haha.  
Orchids from Keith!  Look how many there are!  (And you can see my birthday orchids in the background.)
Squirt loves her hamburger toy, haha.

We got snow!  But, it has melted...  I took Squirt outside for some photos.  We didn't stay out for long because she was shivering, haha.  Poor girl.
Orchids again.
Do you guys have anything exciting planned for the weekend? On Monday it's a holiday in Canada (called Family Day... haha.  It's a newer holiday...) so it's a long weekend.  Last night (Thursday night) I started feeling kind of sick... I had a bit of a fever & just felt achy all over... hopefully it's just that 24 hour bug!  Or nothing at all, ha!   Hope you guys have a great weekend!

      And brussel sprouts are so good! I don't know why I never ate them before? I'll be posting both the recipes that I used for them! So delicious! With lots of Parmesan cheese! YUM!

  2. Love these photos! They have a somewhat cozy atmosphere to them, a little winterish - even the indoor ones! And the photos of Squirt are absolutely adorable. I really hope you feel much better now. A great weekend to you too!

    1. I feel much better today! I don't know what was yesterday? But I'm glad it didn't last for long!!

      Keith always picks out the best orchids! Okay, I might have helped with the newest ones... but every "holiday" or birthday he buys me new ones!

  6. Baked brussels sprouts are phenomenal. You've inspired my dinner tonight! Also loving: heart shaped donuts, orchids, and your wee white and brown dog. :) She reminds me of my Shiva. I hope you feel better!

  8. Oh my, Squirt is THE CUTEST ♥ !

    I do :)! My birthday is this Sunday, so I'm having a costume birthday party with a bunch of friends ♥
    I've been terrified of getting sick for two weeks now, I didn't want to be sick for my party. I got a cold at the beginning of this week, but I kept it at bay with vitamins and herbs. Or just the placebo affect, I don't know, hehe.

    I hope you feel better soon :)

  9. Squirt is super cute! I love when animals are attached to toys, it's adorable. I don't think BC has family day until next year, what a rip off for us!

    Also, Papillon is such an amazing story! I didn't even know it was true until someone told me half way through the book. I loved it!

    1. Haha her favourite toy of all time is this fox that Keith got for her a few Christmases ago. With most stuffed animals she will rip it apart eventually, but not this one. She acts like it's her little baby & will just lick it over and over. She loves that thing! Haha.

      Ahhh, I love love LOVE Papillon! It's one of the few books that I can re-read all the time and not get sick of. Such a great book. There is a movie about it too, I should check it out some time!
