Fast and Full (and Fabulous) February

As per usual, February has been a busy month.  This year we had more than the usual stuff scheduled. Scott made a life long dream come true by taking the Little Ones to the Monster Truck show.

Living Life Deliciously

Lately, we've been taking a big bite out of life.  Last month on a lunch date, we finally checked out a local place (called Local, hah!) and really enjoyed ourselves and our meal. Of course, 2 days later, this place announced it was closing its doors, so we decided to take the kids there for brunch before that happened. I didn't get any pictures except for the bacon "heart" resting on my Gorgonzola spinach grits.

My phone camera doesn't do it justice...

Brunch was served in 3 courses: fruit/scones/muffins/cheese, eggs/meats/grits and a variety of pancakes for breakfast dessert. My favorite item was the grits! We asked for seconds and boxed up the leftover grits to enjoy the next morning. And then we promptly left the doggie box on the table. *sad face* 

This prompted me to make my own variation on the grits, using up the rest of the Stilton blue we had left over from last month's foraging for goodies.  I didn't get pictures of THAT concoction, but it was delicious, especially topped with a fried egg!

And this past Wednesday evening, Scott and I partook in a winemaker dinner that my friend and her man were hosting in Yukon.

Recovery Period

A few years back we invested in a lovely red sectional to fill up our Living Room. Life was GOOD!

Fast forward 5 years and 2 more kids, our couch has seen better days...
