Five Things // February 9th

Happy Friday & welcome to February! Every week I try to share about five things that happen. This could be something personal, something in my classroom, or in my kitchen!

1. Testing out caterers for our wedding.

Jonathan and I have been researching different vendors lately (we have been using Wedding Wire, which has been AMAZING as a wedding tool) but our favorite is trying to find a caterer that fits our foodie loving souls. I think we found the perfect place (a little bit of both of us in terms of cuisine) and can’t wait to meet with the owner to talk more! Hoping to get this all settled by the end of February.

2. Faux Ring for the win!

My ring had to get dropped off for some replacement diamonds that fell out, and they said it would take three weeks! Ugh. I quickly found a fake ring for the job and I don’t think it looks too bad for the next few weeks.

3. Cuba falling asleep just about anywhere.

Caught this cute moment with Cuba crashed on Jonathan one evening. She is too much!

4. Heart-Shaped Pizzas coming soon (perfect for February!)

Made these heart-shaped pizzas for the super bowl and they were awesome! I’m going to be sharing the post very soon so you can make them just in time for Valentine’s day!

5. Fridays are for hot chocolate.

This week was a little odd when it came to work (I didn’t feel good!) so my friend is being completely motivated by Hot Chocolate with extra whip cream. What keeps you going on the last day of the week?
