Five Loves on Friday!

Happy Friday, lovelies!  I'm so excited to share all the celebratory goodness that's been going on here since this time last week!

1.  Valentine's Day Goodies from my Love!

I don't think I could have smiled any bigger than I did when I read the words  "Chocolate Tower"!  My lovey knows what I like, that's for sure!

The gift of yummy eats just kept coming!  We took advantage of a Famous Dave's offer of 25% off to-go orders and brought home some deliciousness! {...and may have eaten dinner in our pajamas!  PERFECTION in my book!}  

My Picks:  Traditional Wings, Famous Fries, & Corn Bread Muffin

Dave's Famous Bread Pudding - best shared with the one you love most!

We watched some fun shows in our Netflix/Hulu queues and enjoyed the night with barbecue sauce covered fingers and smile covered faces!  Full hearts & tummies ...does it get any better than that?!

2.  Date Night!
Saturday night my parents invited the girls to spend the night!  Hooray for ALL involved!  Jason and I were super excited for some couple time!  

Our night involved a little bit of this...

Snacky goodness including our favorite - Whole Foods' Curried Chicken Salad! YUM!


...And a little bit of that.

Clean Guys of Comedy features comedians Dave Coullier {aka: "Joey Gladstone"}, Jamie Kennedy, Heather McDonald, Ralph Louis Harris, and Andy Hendrickson.  In our opinion, it was just okay.  I laughed pretty hard at certain bits, others not so much.  

Any suggestions on what our next Redbox rental should be?  I'd love to hear about your favorite recent rental in the comment section below! ;)

3.  SURPRISE Extended Weekend!
Sunday afternoon I was thinking about what a great weekend it'd been, but was a lit'l down that it was wrapping up ...then, Jason gave the girls and I one last Valentine's weekend surprise!! He told us that he'd put in for a vacation day on Monday to extend our weekend!  

It was the first day, in I don't even know how long, that we didn't set an alarm!  SO REFRESHING!!!

I had forgotten how much I LOVE sleep!

We enjoyed such a relaxing day together as a family!  It was pretty much bliss. *happy sigh*

4.  Farewell Party
Good Luck Charlie has been a family favorite of ours from the start!  Since we don't have cable these days (and it'll take a while before Netflix adds it), my parents thoughtfully DVRed the series finale and hosted a viewing party complete with a smorgasbord of delicious eats and sweet treats! 

 It was a fun & yummy evening together celebrating the end of an era.  Great family friendly sitcoms are hard to come by these days, this one will certainly be missed!

5.  Pentatonix | Valentine
We listen to a lot of Pentatonix at our house.  I've been singing this song all week, not nearly as well as they do, of course! ;) ...but I love it!

Each member of this group is so incredibly talented!

Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to visit today!  Wishing you a fabulous weekend ahead!

  1. Wow, I'd never heard that Pentatonix song but I love it! Thanks for sharing!!! Sounds like you had a fantastic week!

  2. I must say the Valentines you got made me drool just a lil bit!! Looks like your week was amazing!

  3. What an awesome Valentine's day you guys had! You husband sounds like such a sweet guy! That extra vacation day was probably such a nice surprise!

  4. Amen to sleep! It's sometimes the only thing that drives me through the week! And I'm loving your Valentine's Day goodies and date night! I could live off of cheese and crackers, so I'm on board with you there! I hope you have an awesome Friday and even better weekend, Brenda! Hugs! xo

  5. Girl! That cheese plate looks AMAZING!! Xx.

  6. I love Good Luck Charlie and can't believe it's over! So sad!

  7. This post is making me even hungrier than I already am! lol. Sleep truly is a gift! One that I would give me right arm for right now. A teething toddler is no fun for anyone! Thank goodness for the weekend!

  8. What a fun week!! I love Pentatonix, too. They are incredibly talented! Have a lovely weekend. =)

  9. I love your Valentine's gifts! Those are delicious looking treats - especially the covered pretzels. Famous Dave's is AWESOME! And 25% off? Even better. That bread pudding looks out of this world. I rented "The Butler" from Redbox a couple of weekends ago, you guys should rent that one too. It's up for a lot of awards. It was great. Sleep is definitely gift! I completely agree with you, I am looking forward to it tomorrow.

    I hope you have a great weekend babe, xo!

  10. My stomach is growling after seeing all of your yummy foods!! Those valentine goodies looked delish!

  11. A surprise grand finale to the weekend!! EXTENDED WEEKEND!!! What a sweet, sweet, thoughtful one you have! Best v-day ever!!! xx

  12. That cheese plate looks divine - a perfect start to any meal!!

  13. All your goodies Are making my mouth water! Yumm! I loved good luck Charlie too! Still haven't watched the last!

  14. A day off on a Monday with the family is just perfect! Hope y'all enjoyed it.

  15. A chocolate tower?! That's pretty perfect:) and cheese and crackers are one of our favorite appetizers/meal! So good. Hope you have a great Monday!

  16. All of that food in the beginning of the post makes me so glad lunch is almost done! That extra vacation day and sleeping must have been awesome! I love it when my Monday off rolls around!

  17. Awwwww your hubby is the sweetest! Whole Foods chicken salad is my JAM! Yummy now you have my craving it!
