What's Up Weekend? April 7th, 2017

It's FRIDAY!!! Finally! This week I've been fighting a pretty nasty cold but surprisingly my spirits are high and I am in a good mood. Not only have I been sick but it was also a busy week with work and appointments. I went 2 days without even looking at Facebook. Shocker! Sorry Peaceful Posse for my neglect. I will make it up to you! 

So here is my list of what made me happy this week! 

1. Last night was fine arts night at Jake's school. Jake had two pieces of his artwork displayed. Hi love for art and music makes me so happy.

2. The entire school made a chandelier out of recycled water bottles. The colors made me happy! 

3. This beautiful mug makes me happy!! 

4. Some of my lunches and dinners over the past couple weeks. So easy to have good meals and not have to pay 12 dollars for a salad at a restaurant.Saving money makes me happy!  I keep several items on hand so I whip up a good salad. My staples are bacon, blue cheese crumbles, blue cheese dressing, hard boiled eggs and guac. Gotta love low carb living. 
5. Sunshine makes everyone happy!

6. I was craving egg drop soup so I whipped it up. Super easy and yummy. I love having a stocked pantry and fridge so that I can cook good meals without having to run to the store. 

7. Mr. J 

8. Finding bedroom furniture that both Mr J and I like. We haven't purchased it yet but we will be and the thought of our new bedroom(sanctuary) makes me super happy. 

9. Since going low carb/no sugar it has been difficult to enjoy an occasional adult beverage. I found these and thought I would give them a try. I tried all the flavors but the only one I like was the grapefruit one. They have 2 carbs but only 1 net carb. Yes they have 1 gram of sugar which is a no no for me but in moderation I will partake. These make me happy. Matter of fact I think I will have one tonight. 

10. The Wild won last night. That makes me SUPER happy!!

There you have it! All in all and pretty good week despite missing my man and having a cold. I'm looking forward to a sunny spring weekend. 

What made you happy this week??

Jake's art is fantastic! I really love the flower picture! I am happy to hear he likes art! The bedroom set is lovely! I hope your cold is on it's way out. My kiddo still has one hanging on, but he seems to be slowly getting better. Enjoy your weekend!!

Love Jake's art - he did a great job!

Your dog is so cute. Omg! I love taking pictures of my dog.

I hope you are feeling better - I HATE colds.

OMG, your son is so talented! Awww you must be so proud <3 That's wonderful that he found something he obviously enjoys so much.


Hope you start to feel better soon, my sweet... So many icks going around these days, it seems like everyone is getting sick.

Also you are such a wonderful asset to the Peaceful Posse group and seeing your name always makes me smile.

PS: Your salads look delicious and I didn't realize egg drop soup was a thing! (don't mind me... just hiding under this big ol rock over here, lol). OH! And that bicycle art behind the bed is really neat!

Those salads are right up my alley!! That art show looks pretty awesome, I bet he remembers it for a very long time. Things are getting serious!! I am glad you're so happy honey! Love you!

That water bottle chandelier is so cool!

That chandelier simply makes me happy to look at! Also, the sun makes everything better. Hope it's been a great weekend.

Chrissy said...

Love Jake's art and that he enjoys it so much! My daughter does too and she is getting so good at it, it might be something for a future career! Maybe art school.
That chandelier is amazing! What a fun idea!
Your salads look so good! I loved salads and making them! Thanks for the inspiration!

Hey babes!
I hope you had a LOVELY weekend with j and your boy. You've got a talented little artist in the making there, mark my words. Actually, now that I think of it, I should ask him to draw me something now and autograph it for me for when he becomes famous. ;)

Your dog is just too damn adorable.

I love your new bedroom furniture set. It's quite a nice set and something I'd pick for us too. Which reminds me, in the next year or two, we should get a new bed set and mattress. Oh the joys of adulthood. Lol!

Before the PP group, I only checked FB once a day, if that. Now, forget it. Lol oh well.

Have a great week Momma. ;) xo

That bed is really nice!! The only piece of furniture I've ever fallen in love with was the bedframe we bought it the states--it was perfection for us! Sadly, we had to leave it behind when we moved overseas, but I still think about that beautiful bed!
