Random Photo Friday

Hello, my friends. And Happy Friday! This week passed quickly in a perfect combination of busy days and cozy days. Here is a bit of what we were up to here in our new home...

Some days were sunny and warm,
which was perfect because we were out and about.

What's Inside My Purse

I switched out my purse yesterday. I took everything out of my blue winter bag, went through all the items, and promptly put (almost) everything right back in my Disney spring and summer bag. Madison suggested I share with you some of the things I keep inside, and because I rely heavily on my firstborn for advice, I am doing just that. I will spare you pictures of the typical purse things...my wallet, my keys, my oversized pack of disinfecting wipes...and focus on the important things: cosmetics!

Friday again! I hope your week was happy and healthy and full of all things cozy. We spent the week cozy inside our home as the snow fell yet again. I know soooo many people are over winter, and I totally understand. I, however, am embracing these last few days of cozy-stay inside-and snuggle-time. I know that spring will come, the grass will grow, the flowers will bloom, and the sun will shine someday soon. Until then, I'll be right here, snuggled under my blanket sipping my coffee.

Things I'm Loving Now

Well, besides our new home, which I will share with you as soon as we unpack a few more boxes. Here are a few very random things I am currently loving...

~ This White Tea and Sage Foaming Hand Soap from Bath and Body
It smells so good.
So fresh.

So amazing that I keep it in the bathroom and in the kitchen.

Hello, my friends! We are slowly returning to our new normal, and are very happy here in our new home. I hope your week was happy and healthy...we are passing around an annoying cold...but are otherwise doing well. Here is a quick peek at our first week in our new home.

Steve saw this little guy the other morning while we were having our coffee and tea.
And watching Match Game '74.

Happy Easter!

In the meantime, here are three totally random photos from this past week that I am posting because any other photos would include the hot mess that is currently my house, and let's face it...who wants to see that??

Friends, Fun, Food, And Sun

And naps. Lots of naps. We returned from our family time spent together aboard our favorite cruise ship ever, The Carnival Pride, rested and full of memories to last a lifetime. The amazing thing about cruising is that you are all together for an entire week with nothing to do but spend quality together. And of course, make new friends.

Here are way too many photos of the week we spent cruising together...

On our way...

It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time

Flashback to late November, and my Madison was returning to Denmark after being home for Thanksgiving. Our firstborn would be spending her first Christmas away from home, and despite our brave faces, she and I were both extremely sad and apprehensive. Enter Steve, the most amazing husband and father, who strives to ensure his family is as happy as is humanly possible. Before Madison and Nicolas left for the airport, Steve surprised us by telling us we were all going on a cruise in March! (FYI...a cruise in March is almost half the price of one in June.) And so, we were happy that even though our Christmas wouldn't be the same, we all had something to look forward to come March.

Great idea, right?
