Happy Friday!!! I feel like a million bucks today. I went to Zumba last night and danced so hard that I couldn’t see because of the sweat pouring down my face. Vinay and I were in bed just after 9PM and got a solid 8 hours of sleep (Thanks Avery). And tonight my parents come into town for the weekend – and they’re bringing their dogs! (Avery loves dogs!…well, and my parents too, haha.)
As if that wasn’t enough good stuff going on… here are my High Five’s for the week:
1. Avery’s Halloween Art
Avery brought these masterpieces home from daycare this week. Aren’t the ghost feet adorable?!? The girls at daycare said he squealed when they put the paint on his feet…. I think he is ticklish like me!
2. Crock Pot Cooking is Back!
Since Vinay was feeling a little sick earlier in the week, I broke out the crock pot and made some hearty soup. I threw it together with leftovers in the fridge: 1/2 a chicken breast, veggies, & pasta. Delicious! Now that it’s chilly out, it’s time to use the crock pot more – set and forget!
Since the girls at daycare said Avery LOVED coloring, we tried it at home. Yeah, they must work some magic with him because he STILL would rather eat the crayons than color with them… silly kid. When does the desire to put EVERYTHING into their mouth go away?!
4. Thanksgiving Food Drive
Next week is Thanksgiving and among the MANY things I’m thankful for, I’m thankful we are able to donate to my company’s food drive. It wasn’t much, but I pulled a few select items from the cupboards that we could spare. Every little bit helps, right?
5. Dirt & Leaves
Avery loves the park. On Monday we were home before the sun set and spent an hour at the park. Avery had fun in the dirt and found a leaf … and he was sooo adorable playing with it!
What’s your 5 this week?
