A Weekend Worth Celebrating

Hello everyone!
I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend.
Erik and I sure did!
It was rather eventful.
Friday was full of celebrations.
It was February 1st which means it's officially my birthday month!
We also made it through January.
It was national bubblegum day.
National wear red day.
And it was FRIDAY!
Needless to say we celebrated.

Saturday was Groundhog Day.
That may not be cause for celebration for some but Erik and I are big fans of Groundhog Day.
We read up on the history several years ago and got the biggest kick out of it.
Did you know that Punxsutawney Phil has found the elixir of life?
That's why he has been around for 133 years!
Humans have tried to use it but it just turns them fat and bald. 😂
What a riot!
Also, watching grown men wear top hats and get a crowd excited about a groundhog that predicts the weather is quite a sight to be seen.
Erik and I usually watch the big reveal together and then watch Bill Murray's Groundhog Day later that evening.
This year Erik asked if he could make me a special breakfast for Groundhog Day and of course I said yes.
Here is the masterpiece he presented me with.

Punxsutawney pancakes!
That man makes my world such a happy place.
We ate these while getting the amazing news that spring is on it's way.
Needless to say the pancakes will be part of our Groundhog Day traditions from now on.

Then Sunday was the Super Bowl.
Erik and I are usually with family but, this year we didn't have any plans.
We spent the whole day cooking
We made soft pretzels, chicken wings, green chili mac and cheese, a veggie plater and chips and dip.
We sat down and watched the entire game.
I was so full afterwards...

It was such a fun weekend.
I am grateful for a husband who will celebrate everyday with me.
How did you spend your weekend?
I'd love to hear!

All my love,
