Despite having sick kiddos, it was a nice weekend! Saturday I had a bunch of girls come over to try a Charcoal Facial, drink mimosas and chit chat. It was such a fun morning. A big thanks to my hubby for taking the girls to his parents (Thanks Dennis and Julie!!) so that I could have some mom time!
My sweet friend Heather brought me these beautiful flowers. It’s amazing how one vase of flowers can make it feel like spring. We’re still in the middle of Michigan winter here, so we’ll keep enjoying some of our favorite warm comfort foods. Here’s what we’re eating for the next two weeks!
