February Favorites ~ 2021

 For such a short month, February was packed with lots of joy and happy times for our family. My heart was certainly full. 


Remember the candy heart-shaped box that was as big as my head?! Well, pretend I just snapped my fingers and walla! THIS is what happened! I used the bottom portion of the box, lined it with wax paper, and created one of my favorite charcuterie boards yet! Everyone loved how it turned out! Especially me.


Mid-month, we got yet another winter storm that included more snow. If you remember, we also had one in January, but with this one came very, very cold temperatures in the teens. The northern part of our state was pretty much closed for a week. Wayne didn't go to work all five days, which has never happened. Alise was on winter break, so unfortunately, she didn't get to hang out with her friends as much as she had planned. Me? I cooked and baked all week and we all gained ten pounds!! I feel like all I did was eat, sleep, and binge Netflix. I got a little work done, too. But having said all that, the snow was really beautiful. This week the temps have been in the 70's and Alise and I have started back walking in the afternoons. Spring is definitely right around the corner! 




Basketball season is officially over and I honestly don't know what to do with myself these days with all my "free" time. Alise has decided not to run track this year, which Wayne and I are disappointed about, but it's her decision. Right after BB season ended, an acquaintance of ours posted this on Facebook regarding Alise's team. Actually we were a little shocked. It is our impression that this person was referring to Alise since she plays the point guard position and we do not have a number 10 on our team. Her back up is a single number and we only have one team - a JV team (we have no seniors). Having said that, this was a proud parent moment for us. We love watching our Baby Girl play and do what she loves. 


Having said that, the team played at Wayne's alma mater AND my parent's old high school in back-to-back weeks. I wish my parents could have been able to attend. The team's last game was their best game of the season and they put over 50 points on the scoreboard. They beat the other team by over 30 points, which is a spread they haven't made all season. It was definitely a happy moment and one to remember! Love seeing those happy faces!!




I hope your February was just as fun and fulfilling!  Have an awesome weekend!

  6. That heart charcuterie is so gorgeous looking I don't know if I could eat it... well, I totally would, but it is so pretty, LOL! All your baking, relaxing, and Netflix-ing sounds perfect for the winter months. :) Have a great weekend, Laura!

  7. What an original use for your candy heart box. So, so cute! I have a lovely board but it just doesn't seem to be "my thing." Way to go Alise! Hope you've had a fun weekend!
