Five Loves on Friday!

Happy, Happy Friday!!  It's been a freezing and fantastic week here!  Hope you're all doing well and staying cozy, even it that requires a few extra layers where you're at!  ...and if it doesn't, enjoy the warmth of the sun enough for you and me both, friend! ;)  Let's get right to the loves that made my heart smile most this week...


1.  I love my Valentine!
I know I joked that it felt like Valentine's Day came early last month, but it really did this week!! Jason gave me my v-day gifts early!!  My old phone had been giving me trouble for the past few months, but I hadn't even considered getting a new one anytime soon.  Much to my surprise my sweet Jason came home with a bag of goodies with a red bow on it's side containing this...

2.  Case-y Cuteness!

He took me shopping for a case right away as I'm a lit'l bit clumsy, and he's a lot bit wise! ;)  This was meant to be a "just for now" case until I could order one, but it's so darling I think I may use it for a while ...before I inevitably wrap it in some Disney magic!



3.  Snow Ice Cream!

Little One and I bundled up and gathered some frosty flakes for a sweet homemade treat, snow ice cream!  You can find the recipe we used here.  It turned out a teensy bit soupy.  (I let Little One add all the ingredients and she took her time getting it "just right". :))  It tasted just like vanilla ice cream though and was much more fun than running to the freezer section of the grocery store! ;)



4.  SNOW DAY!

Oh, how refreshing it is to take a day off from the normal routine of life and just relax together!  Little One declared it My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic marathon day!  (How cute is it that she decorated around the entertainment center with all her pony toys? :)) Princess learned a few new songs, while her mom listened with a heart so full of pride it could burst!  Our home was filled with laughter, music, and girls in pjs snuggled up under piles of blankets.  It was pretty much amazing!



5.  I heart this {FREE} Kate Spade Digital Wallpaper! 

Isn't it super lovely?!  It's currently my phone's home screen AND my side of our Mac's wallpaper!  I can't get enough of the prettiness!! Click the link below the image to beautify your phone / iPad / computer / facebook timeline today too!!


Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to stop by and visit!  It makes my heart happy to have you here!

  4. Snow ice cream is definitely a FAVE at our house! :) We especially love adding a little maple flavoring instead of vanilla for something a little different! YUM! Glad you had an AMAZING week! <3

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. ;)
