It's Friday and we have a 3 day weekend and the crowd goes wild....you get to sleep in and you get to sleep in and you get to sleep in...until 7:01am ;) Why is that kids get up earlier on non-school days and I have to wrangle them out of bed on school days? Anyone else????
Okay on to some highlights of our week...grab a caffeinated beverage and let's get this party started :)
Can we just talk about these sweeeeet valentines from Scott's 96 year old grandmother. I mean I am laminating them and keeping them forever...hand-cut and homemade. #seriously
I have a giveaway going on over on Instragram for one of these darling prints by a great guy that goes to our church, he and his wife are crazy talented!
For my readers, he is offering a special #Iloveagooddeal. He will create a custom digital copy and print release for $20.00 per design (Then you can print them for all your family with your last name - think Mother's Day, Easter gift, Birthday gifts). He will email you the digital copy and you can print anywhere you want :). Simply find him on Facebook or Instagram and tell him Erin @ PerfectlyPortFamily sent you! I gave these out to my neighbors and kids teachers for Christmas. They make great gifts :).
We had a great Valentine's Day...we usually make the day about our family. It's just what we do so we started out early (because our kids have caught on) with a small gift for everyone...
Followed by pink heart pancakes, which I managed to burn the first round! I simply placed a large heart metal cookie cutter in the pan and poured the batter in and then pulled it off with some tongs and flipped ;). Just don't wait too long to flip...;)
We finished the day with some baking because it's someone's love language to bake...#Vera
Scott said the store associate knew what he was making and I said I bet he thought it would be slightly more romantic ;)....it was a family feast of chocolate covered strawberries. These 3 did a great job cooking! Clearly the way to ours hearts is our bellies!
Can we just talk about This Is Us? I am so nervous for the episodes coming up #tissuesneeded
It's definitely a favorite of mine right now! What do you think is going to happen? #stress
Another favorite tv show is When Calls the Heart (Hallmark Channel). The first 2 seasons are on Netflix, the 3rd season releases February 19th and the 4th season begins on the Hallmark Channel on the 19th too. It's sweet, romantic and just a fun, very PG show to watch. Have you seen it?
I had a mom fail moment this week and so I wrote a little post to encourage as all that one moment of failure doesn't define us as failures. If you need a word hug, go give it a read and share it with another momma too!
Last but not least I started my monthly home series, where I snoop around people's houses visit people's homes, take lots of pictures and then interview the home-owner. I started so go check out our home here.
