5 Things Making Me Happy #13

 Whew!!! What a week, we made it back to Georgia Tuesday night after a full day of flying. We were greeted by lots of hugs and kisses from 2 little girls :) and the rest of the week was spent getting caught up on laundry, grocery shopping, getting the girls to school, homework, cleaning and I blinked and here we are at Friday! Here’s a few things making me smile this week….

1. My early V Day gift…. 


I love catbird and their dainty rings! This is my third ring from them and I love them all! 

2. Vegas! We had a great trip and managed to mostly stay on East Coast time so we weren’t too jet lagged when we made it back home!



This was from Hash House A Go Go and it was amazing! A farm scramble with griddled mashed and a rosemary biscuit. The picture does not do it justice, the lighting was low in the restaurant. 


Ready for Blue Man! 



Awesome burger and fries from Shake Shake! Wish I had one right now :(

3. This book

5 Love Languages of Children

I’m about half way through it and if you have children you need to read this book. 

4. This recipe for Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

I made this on Wednesday and Jim and I both enjoyed it. I topped mine with avocado, hot sauce and I crunched up a few Sun Chips to sprinkle on top. Soooo good and only took about 5 minutes to get everything into the pot!

5. I will leave you with a smile on this little cutie’s face :)

Whole Wheat Carrot Muffins

After the holidays and one too many delicious desserts Jim and I decided that we needed to give up refined sugars for a little while. We just felt like our bodies needed a little break from sugar. We decided that we didn’t want to give up all sugar and were okay with using honey or…
