Low key & Lovely

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was low key which was great.
Even though it was a snowy, cold weekend Spring is coming. It was light enough this morning that I could comfortably walk Cruz in the ravine and not feel afraid with it being super dark. She was one happy girl.
Well Friday afternoon I came home to a huge bouquet of beautiful flowers from Justin. :)
He went to the florist who did our wedding flowers and asked for flowers that were in my bouquet. So sweet. They didn't have many of them in stock but the bouquet was stunning.
He also bought me Strut wines that have shoes on the label. I am known for buying wine just for the unique name or label so this was very thoughtful on his part. 
Thanks babe, you are the bestest.

I loved being able to chat with Jeff this weekend. 
He send me a text with this photo. 

He is in Vatican City today and went to Trevi Fountain. Amazing.
Glad Jolie made it home safely and they had a great time together. 
Only 6 more sleeps and he will be in NY with you Jols. 
THEN soon you will both be HERE! :)

We had to drop Turbo Tax off to our friends Blake and Karen.
Justin couldn't just leave it in the garage. 
Nope, he spent 10 minutes creating a tower. :)

My parents are in sunny Arizona so we (meaning Justin!) shoveled their walks for them.
Cruz takes shoveling very seriously. 
(And yes that house is PURPLE!)
She LOVES catching the snow, biting the snow, biting the shovel. It's more of a pain than anything but she loves it!

We had a fun dinner with Leigh & Mr. D on Saturday night. Love it when the guys make plans for us. :)

Justin spent a ton of time organizing and rearranging the basement yesterday. He made it very clear he DID NOT want my help, I don't know why but didn't complain. 
He did help me add hooks to my earring holder for my necklaces, LOVE it.
I then cleaned up my jewelry box my Grampa made me too. 
I really love it, it's so handy.

I also cleaned out my closet. Feels good to purge items and get it all organized (yes, it's color coded) again. :)
Justin bribed me with a promise of a Starbucks trip to go to Rona with him.
We (meaning Justin! No shopping for me!) ended up buying the bathroom hardware I have been eyeing to update our main floor bathroom.
With {little} help Justin and a tutorial later I had those bad boys installed. 
Love how looks. Not a great photo, they are antique looking sorta.
This weekend we also watched:
We really enjoyed both of them.

Other than that - the usual 2 a day walks in the ravine, cleaned the house, I finished Bloom, lent it to Leigh, she also finished it, quick visit with Justin's Mom, made a big purchase (more on that to come), celebrated it with champagne...the end.

Low key and lovely.

Harley does the same thing when I am shovelling! It's kind of annoying, but good thing he's cute :) He was so excited when you guys came and then sad when he realized Cruz wasn't there. Doggie date is in need!

And what an amazing hubby you have to get you flowers! And not only that but WINE - wine with SHOES!! I have my favorites, but I am not above going with a cute label. It's the best way to try out new and different wines!
