Happy Friday!! I hope you all had a wonderful week. Only good things to report from my house so let's cut to the chase and see the best parts of our week:
Eat the Rainbow
I'm always working on eating colorful meals and I did a good job of that this week. Big salads with carrot ribbons, avocado toast and veggie pasta salad. All were delicious and I'd happily eat them again next week.
2 eggs w bacon bits, 1 piece of toast, 1/2 an avocado and fruit
All the veggies in my fridge, pasta, cheese stick and drizzle of Olive Garden dressing.

Happy March!! We're excited to celebrate with fun St. Patrick's Day things for the next few weeks. I didn't grow up celebrating St. Patrick's Day, but my Notre Dame loving husband convinced me that all things Irish are fun. Expect to see lots of rainbows, gold and clovers at our house. I've got some cards to make, crafts to do with the kids, decorations and new recipes to try. Stay tuned :)
So far I've picked up two clover plants for my kitchen window and they make me so happy! I'm just hoping that I can take good care of them. I am not known for being a great plant mom so wish these cute plants LOTS of luck this month.

My uncle came in town for lunch this week and we had a really nice visit. He came with some purple gifts and a letter from my Mamaw. She'd written it to him 35 years ago and he thought I'd enjoy it since she mentions me in the letter. She passed away on my birthday when I was in 6th grade. I always loved her and have tons of sweet memories with her. I really loved reading it, seeing her handwriting and just seeing what she was interested in all those years ago. Lots of bowling, quilting, letter writing, piano playing, church, family and friends. She even made Banana Cake with caramel frosting the week she wrote the letter and then I made the same cake for my uncle that day. What a fun coincidence :) I love having this letter from her.

Going to the Moon
Our friends invited us to the local children's museum this week and we had so much fun! I've been meaning to buy a family pass for months, but never got around to it. They offer free science classes twice a month for members and they've got three floors of fun things to do. We had a wonderful time learning all about the moon and astronauts. It was so much fun and I'm excited for all of the learning opportunities we'll have there as a family.

Dr Seuss's Birthday
We celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday at our Duplo class this week. Olive loved making her one fish, two fish Duplo fish and the kids had a great time playing. That spin art is always a favorite station.
