The Friday Five!

I know it's been so quiet you could hear a pin drop around here lately, but I've been up to my eyeballs in freelance work. It's a good problem to have, but I do miss getting to create and post regularly here. Well, we at least have lots in the works! Here's a little peak at what we were up to this week ....

Reading -- we finally checked out the Lunch Lady series and Kane LOVES it. It's the first book he didn't want to put down and he read it all the way to school one morning just to finish it. I think we're on to something with the graphic novels. I finished My Brilliant Friend (SO good. Picking up the second in the series from the library today) and started Two-Family House, which is also fantastic. 

Cooking -- I may have told a little white lie to get the kids to try Paleo OMG's Almost 5 Ingredient Pizza Spaghetti Pie (no, that's real spaghetti!), but they housed it so I don't care.

Playing -- my Mother in Law had this awesome version of Clue in New Jersey this past weekend—it includes the classic mansion and a shore-appropriate boardwalk version too. Kane and I are hooked! 

Making -- after investing in a basic set of essential oils, we've been busy trying out all kinds of aromatherapy makes. Including this relaxing set of sprays for Father's Day

Wanting -- in necessary research for our trip later this summer, I tried out this Guinness Nitro IPA last weekend. I usually don't like IPAs, but this is fantastic. I'm sure beer snobs are sneering, now I'm off the booze for a few weeks, I want one.
