Happy Friday! How was your week? You know how sometimes the short weeks feel the longest? Well, a short week due to a Monday holiday and two snow days sure did make this week feel long. I’m not mad about a few snow days, but my family just still isn’t really in a routine which can make the days seem extra crazy and extra long.
This week, I’m sharing my favorites day by day.
My favorite from Saturday was the cookie cake Travis and the kids got me for my birthday. I love that tradition, and of course, the cookie cake was delish.
A big WIN for the Chiefs was a favorite of mine…and a favorite for Hayden too!
An obvious favorite from Monday was having the three day weekend.
It also would have been Betty White’s 100th birthday. Have you seen Google? When you type in her name, roses float down the screen. What a tribute!
Have you seen this post? What a beautiful sentiment.
Also, Hadley had been wanting to watch Sing 2, so we did that. It is such a sweet movie. We all loved it.
Well, Tuesday was a snow day, but it was a NTI (non-traditional instruction) day for us….our first ever NTI snow day. The kids did a great job completing their work, and we are thankful to not have to add these days to the end of the year.
In the evening, I met up with my friend for drinks and an appetizer. She gave me the sweetest birthday gift. It was so great to catch up with her.
Wednesday, we had school…which was honestly a favorite. I’m in the midst of planning our school’s credit recovery session, and I needed to get quite a few things accomplished.
Then, I had a great surprise when I get home. My new T3 curling iron arrived. Do you follow @mommaflum (another teacher named Jennifer!) on Instagram? A couple of weeks ago she shared some of the T3 products that she loves because T3 had a sale going on. I messaged her to ask about the curling iron, and she realized it wasn’t on sale. Anyway, over the weekend, she messaged me to say the curling iron was on sale which I thought was so sweet of her to do. I would never spend $160 on this, but with the sale, it was $100 off, so I used birthday money to treat myself.
Hadley has already used it! I’m going to give it a try over the weekend.
Well, we woke up to about 3 inches of snow which meant another NTI day.
…and snow cream for a mid-morning snack!
Part Husky Homer thinks the snow is so fun, and we love watching him run laps in the backyard!
I love snow too! If it’s going to be cold, then I’m all about the snow. By mid-February, I will be ready for spring.

Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday
This photo from 2016 popped up in my Facebook memories yesterday. I remember taking this photo on a snow day. Hadley has always been able to sleep anywhere, and she sure was worn out!
I had a few posts this week including a recap of the weekend, sharing my favorite cookbooks, and some quick lunch ideas.
Well, as I finished typing this, we got the call that we have another NTI day today. While the roads are in better condition than the snow earlier this week, the temps are frigid and some side streets are still icy. Honestly, I think our sub shortage is also an issue. Maybe next week will be more “normal.”
This weekend, Hayden has some basketball, and then we’ll be cheering for the Chiefs and hoping for another win.
Thanks so much for reading!
