Join Me in celebrating everyday!

The Sunday Simmer

January was a bit of an odd month around here, but I have so many simmering thoughts I have wanted to share with you.

As you may know from following along on Instagram, my dad passed on New Year’s Eve which kicked off a month filled with highs and lows. We celebrated Ani and Adalyn’s birthdays with parties and pretty cakes…I especially loved Adalyn’s woodland fawn cake, isn’t it sweet?

On my birthday I was struck with flu b for 10 days and was down for the count, but it gave me time to plan a surprise trip to Florida for the girls. We enjoyed an airboat ride, day at Disney and my favorite, saw 170 manatees. It was a much needed reprieve to get the year back on track!

Since I’ve had a lot of time to think and scroll, I have a lot of must see things to share with you! But first, did you see my sweet girls for the Puppy Bowl? You can get these easy last-minute ideas and free printable bingo cards here.

I’ve heard there’s a game on tonight? I’m excited to watch Justin Timberlake, catch a few commercials, but most of all, eat dip and beer bread for dinner. That’s what it’s all about, right? You can print my trivia here and commercial bingo cards here to join in on the fun while you wait for the big concert!
