Five Loves on Friday!

Happy Friday, friends!  The past week sure has been a delightful and delicious one for my family!  I can't wait to share a handful of its highlights with you today!  Ready, set, Five Loves time!

One  //  Friends Dayte!

My dear friend Nikki and her sweet kiddos joined us for a fun-filled day of chatting, snacking, laughing, and playing games that revolved around our mutual love of Disney!  It was truly a treat having them visit and most definitely a highlight of our week!

Also lovers of food (all the best people are), they brought beautiful trays of fruit and cheese, and even a dessert straight from Beauty and the Beast!  The Grey Stuff was oh so delicious!  

Two  //  A Gift Bag of Girly Goodness!

Nikki, being the incredibly thoughtful friend that she is, also came bearing beautiful (& scrumptious) gifts!  

These goodies had my name written all over them!  I mean, pink & gold, chocolate, donut references, and cozy socks - she clearly knows me well!  Thanks again, Nikki!

. . . Days just don't get much sweeter than that!

Three  //  Date Night + a Date Day

My parents invited the girls over for a sleepover on Friday night, then took them to a birthday party on Saturday.  This allowed Jason and I almost 24 hours of couple time!  It was so wonderfully refreshing enjoying one on one time with my sweet, funny, and adorable hubby!

Four  //  Super Bowl Sunday Eats

I admit, all I watched of Super Bowl 50 was the halftime show (Coldplay is one of my all-time favorites so I couldn't miss that)!  Even sans football, Super Bowl Sunday is a great excuse for some taste bud touchdowns!  We ordered a smorgesbourg of yumminess from Pizza Ranch and had our own lit'l buffet of comfort food!  YUM!

Five  //  Dinner at My Parents' Place

Speaking of comfort food, my parents invited us over for a happy helping of of bread, cheese, and pasta, followed by one of my mom's always yummy dessert spreads!  It was a fantastic night with family and food, two of my favorite things! ;)

Thanks for stopping by today!  Wishing you the sweetest of weekends ahead!

  13. Aww - looks like a great time and so sweet of Nikki to bring you a Valentine's treat (I mean, chocolate is already great, but when it's DOVE? YUMM!).
    I keep seeing/hearing about "the gray stuff"! What exactly is it??
    I think I didn't know how Coldplay is one of your all-time favorites? I missed the half-time show, but they are so awesome. If you've never seen them live in concert, you should really go check them out. I've seen them a couple of times - the first time I saw them (I think it was for their 2nd album) was at the Hollywood Bowl and it's still one of THE BEST shows I've ever been to. They have a reputation for being mellow, but they totally rock out in concert!

  14. Ooooh looks like a totally fun and delicious week! I spy a rapid refill mug on the table at your parent's...I use ours all the time. :) Happy Valentines, sweet friend!
