Tea Time ~ Valentines and Cozies ~ 2/17/17

Grab a cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate or your favorite drink
while I share a few things that made me smile this week :)

Last week was a not so good week for me.  I didn't even do a Tea Time post because I just couldn't find much to smile about.  A visit to the doctor and a tweak to my antidepressant and things are starting to look up :)  So how about some smiles!

~Valentine's Day!  Doug and I had our Valentine Date on Saturday.  We had a very nice time eating out and talking about all that is going on in our life right now.  On Tuesday, I had a meeting, so Doug took the girls out for a Daddy/Daughter Valentine Date to McDonald's.  They had their hearts set on a Shamrock Shake but they were all out!  Poor things :)

~The other morning I made the girls their breakfast and as they were eating I started packing their lunches.  I looked over at Laken and saw her reading a book while eating her egg!  Girl after my own heart :)

~As I wrote about in my Family Time post this week, the girls and I made chocolate chip cookies as Valentine gifts.  I always enjoy spending time with my girls, especially when we bake :)

~Laken's Cheer Pep Squad worked really hard to raise enough money to get new uniforms.  They finally were delivered and the cheerleaders were so excited!  Here's a picture of MY little cheerleader in her new uniform :)

~Cozy mysteries have been making me smile lately.  This week I read a book called "Buried in a Book" by Lucy Arlington.  I loved it!  Be watching for a review and giveaway soon :)


What made you smile this week?
