Insta Friday - I am a Virgin


Ok, so I am ALL NEW to this INSTA FRIDAY thing...but I am linking up with Jeannett at Life Rarranged to share my week...I am hoping to connect more, and share more -- all through a few cell phone pics that capture my week...

It was a really good but scattered week...a little of this a little of that...some fun kiddo things...and some really BIG BUSINESS stuff ...and lots of great inspirations that have kept me going...

I drove to CT with my gal pal Kathy and just look at these piles of loot we found...old wall paper and fabrics in my pal Jennifer Paganelli's Sis-Boom studio...I wanted to stay and play all day...

...big doings with Boy Scouts...two sons and high stakes in the Pinewood Derby...Rory and "Captai Midnight" placed 2nd ina few heats but we loved cheering on all the racers...

I saw my friend George...he likes my iPhone and he likes me...gotta love a big fuzzy dog...
We skiied...we try to get to the slopes once each weekend...no excuse not to...it;s 2 miles from the house and we have season passes...my fave thing is to have the kids but their ski gear on over their pjs -- it gets us on the slopes early and well, it's a time saver mommy thing ...
I have been a very good girl and been on the treadmill most days...that used to be a somedays things so I like being able to say most days...have rewarded myself with a "cake" see below...
Oh see this cartload of stuff...that would indicate that I actually went food shopping. You mean you do this every week???!! Logically someone who loves to eat - me -- would love to shop for food -- but alas, I do not. See those flowers on the top of the cart - they are my treat...the kids get a box of frozen mini pizza bagels and all is right with the world...
...the latest issue of Where Women Create arrived and I was tickled to see me and us and Jo in her "From the Kitchen Table" Editor's letter...I admire my talented friends!!

I realized I have quite a lot of tea...and as a matter of fact, I am drinking some now!

I learned that I absolutely loathe peeling chick peas -- did you even know you could actually peel a chick pea...yeah, well maybe I knew but I didn't think I would ever...ok, so I did because that wonderful recipe for gluten-free chocolate chip cake requires "2 cans peeled chick peas". Good thing I loved said cake...

...and I am making it again, but I am not peeling the chick peas and we will just see about that!
Allie -- one of my fab kid helpers for Earth Angels -- was here late one night to get the mailing done for our next event in FL on 3/2 and 3/2...oh my March will be here soon...where does the time run away to???

so that was my week...some new food, some old friends and some of this and that...how was your week...do anything new and exciting...

Well...go check out the insta-friday posts and see what we were all up to...

xxoo Jen

Now, I see!! We have lots in common dear one. I drink lots of tea. Yogi and stash teas are my faves at the moment. I JUST purchased vintage wall paper today at the thrift shop. Yay, it's so darn hard to find around here. They will be going in the shop for sure!! From the looks of things, we shop at the same market. My cart gets just as full with or without Flowers. I'm kicking myself because, I didn't buy flowers today. I got sidetracked. Hummus instead:)
Have a great weekend. Thanks, I received your card! Msg. me when you get your French perfume.
