Five Loves on Friday!

Happy Friday, friends!  I hope you had a great week!  Ours flew by!  I'll be keeping today's post much like the week it's following, short and sweet!  Let's get right to those five loves...

One // Celebrating my Mom's Special Day

Birthday cupcakes // Mom with her gift from us, a photo book of magical memories from our Disney World vacation!

Monday was my sweet mom's special day!  The girls and I headed to her home for lunch and enjoyed celebrating her, with extra sprinkles of course!  Happy birthday week, Mom!  Love ya to pieces!

Two // Family Snow Day!

There was a blizzard in the forecast this week for our area.  For the first time in over a decade and a half my husband's work closed for the day due to weather!  It didn't end up nearly as bad as forecasted, but the family snow day sure was a treat!

Three // Team Platt

This may sound funny, but even something like shoveling snow is a good time when done alongside my hubby!  I'm so thankful to have such a fantastic partner in every aspect of life.  Plus the snow scooping gave me an excuse to have an extra . . . 

Four // Cinnamon Bun Oreo

Have you tried these?  For some reason they taste like comfort in cookie form to me!  They're oh so yummy!

Five // Cheddar the Goldfish

Little One asked for a new pet.  Her request was a goldfish.  Isn't childhood grand?  The simplest of things can bring such joy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Wishing you a beautiful first weekend of February!

  7. Happy birthday to your mom! I love the goldfish. I've been wanting to get Mila one - soon! Have a fabulous weekend, Brenda!

  8. Yay for snow days. I was hoping for one today but I'm at work. Ugh, being essential worker is the worse thing ever.

  9. Aww happy birthday to your mom! And snow days are the best, I loved them as a kid but I think even more so as an adult! Have a great weekend!

  10. We are having an unexpected family snow day today! My husband isn't technically off, but working from home. I will be out in a little bit shoveling snow! I have not yet tried the cinnamon bun oreos. I have decided to really get more serious about eating healthier, so I may have to pass on these! Have a great weekend!

  11. Happy Birthday to your Mama! I hope you guys enjoyed your snow day! We got some more this morning but it's stopped now...thank goodness! The Sun is actually out now. I have seen those Oreos in the store and I almost bought them the other day but I cant have them in my house or I will eat the whole bag. I have no self control! Have a fabulous weekend lovely!

  12. Totally just treated Mark to those cinnamon bun oreos...they made their way into my cart yesterday! :)

  13. Happy birthday to your mom!!

    Unplanned snow days are the best! I'm so glad that y'all had a day out of it.

    Why have I never seen these oreos before??

    I had a goldfish too! It was great we had a full aquarium for a while.

  14. Unplanned snow day ! Love that cupcake! And my husband would looove the Oreos!mhappy Friday!!

  15. That Oprah meme is hilarious! LOL!! I wish we had snow days here! The temperature here is slowly creeping up - supposed to be in the high 70s/low 80s. :( And according to my phone, it's supposed to be 90 in Anaheim on Tuesday! Argh! I'm not ready for that yet!
    Cheddar is such a cute name for the goldfish!!

  16. The Oprah meme had Ave reading it out loud, possibly with a bit of drama! LOVE IT! Cheddar, the fish with a mustache--LOVE it! <3 I'm ready for SUN-days instead of SNOW-days, but nothing beats family time no matter what kind of day it is!

  17. oh I haven't even seen those oreos!!! need. And a fish! So fun. I think Aria needs a pet fish.
