Things that made me happy in February
Snowstorms--one of which was the biggest storm we've had since moving back to MA. We got 18 inches from that one!
Egyptian Pyramids Dishscape (yay!)
A fun antiques shop and lunch with two friends
Dinner out with two other friends at a new (to me) Italian restaurant that was yummy! (The food, not the restaurant)
Meeting and talking with James "The Beast" McGrath who used to compete on NBC's American Ninja Warrior. The boys did an open gym with him at a nearby ninja gym. He was hoping for and waiting for the call to compete on the new season that's being filmed soon. I hope he got that call.
A box of delicious chocolate-covered strawberries from Edible Arrangements
Receiving a bouquet of hydrangeas and a balloon and funny card from one of my BFFs for Galentine's Day
Sam reading and really liking the Percy Jackson series (I'm so happy to see him being into reading!) and watching the two movies together
John and Sam did the sacrament together for the first time. It was John's first time blessing it and Sam's first time passing it. Very special!
Getting a manicure with my sisters and niece. My nails looked so pretty for a week!
New pajamas that are super comfy and cute (and were only $10 at BJ'S!)
Going with friends to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston for the first time and seeing a beautiful Monet exhibit there, among other very cool things. That museum is a treasure!
On TV, All Creatures Great and Small, which was delightful, and I discovered the pleasures of Poirot
I got my first maskless massage in a year. Massages are better without masks!
A trip with three friends to another antique store that was amazing where I made some great discoveries, followed by lunch at one of my favorite restaurants
I did two puzzles! And I enjoyed them because they weren't super-challenging and discouraging!
(Posts and pictures to come of most of these things. Not the massage. 😄)
