Chatting Over Chocolate

Five Loves on Friday!


Happy Friday, lovelies!  I'm sick at the moment, but I won't let that stop me from sharing the excitement that took place here before this "bug" hit!  Then, I'll finish it off with a few delicious finds I stumbled upon while stuck on the couch with my iPad.  Let's get right to this week's five loves...


1.  Check Out Her New Bling!
Last weekend Little One competed in a taekwondo tournament and rocked it!  She did her absolute best and we couldn't be more proud of our girl!  She got 1st place in weapons, 1st place in forms, and 2nd place in sparring!!!


Way to go, Little One!!!


2.  "So This is Love"
Isn't receiving fun mail the best?!  I was tickled pink to find this sweet poster in my mailbox this week after winning 3rd place in My Borrowed Heaven's #DisneySide giveaway!  Thanks again, Meg! :)


So cute!


3.  70ºs!
There was still a little snow here and there when we woke up Sunday morning ...until the temp hit 70º! {Woohoo!} Then Monday it reached 74º!  We were even able to open our windows and let in some fresh air!  *happy sigh*!  Even though there is more snow in the forecast this weekend, this week's temps gave us a taste of what's to come whenever spring does arrive! :)


4.  Bacon Mac & Cheese?  Yes, please!
Check out what Ingrid {aka:  missglamorazzi} shared this week! YUMmm!




5.  "Once Upon a Time" + Themed Goodies!
Once Upon a Time is baaaack!  L-O-V-E that series! What else do I love?  Themed goodness!  Although I wasn't well enough to bake a batch this week, I think these would be the PERFECT treat for a Once Upon a Time viewing par-tay! :)




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

I would love to hear from you today!! I enjoy reading each and every comment I receive. (I do moderate them before they're published. Gotta keep it family friendly! ;)) My preferred means of replying to you is via email, so please make sure you aren't a "no-reply blogger". It's sad when you take the time to leave a sweet lit'l comment, but I'm unable to reach you with my appreciation. If I can't reply to you through email, I will reply directly below your comment, right here on this post. ;)

Thanks for visiting! Have a fabulous day! :*)
