Insta-Friday in real life, with a chocolate fountain


It's Friday...and I'm about to share a bunch of seemingly random photos. They are united under the "Insta-Friday" theme...sharing simple family cell phone photos from the past week.

Last weekend, I went to get my hair cut. I hadn't been to the salon for, oh, something like 10 months. My hair was ragged. Here's my little gal all decked out for a cold day in the city of Toronto.


Here's one of the houses in Rosedale, near the salon. We park near these houses and gawk...that's about it. Maybe I'll win the lottery one day...


No matter how old I get, I still love to watch a train go by.


Here's Yonge Street, glammed up for the season.


On Saturday night, we went to a lovely party. Dessert came in the form of a chocolate fountain with lots of things to dip in...pineapple, apples, cookies...my son even dipped small chocolate cupcakes into the chocolate. The girls dug in, above.


Here is the aftermath. You can see my son abandoned a small dipped chocolate cupcake on the right. Lightweight.


In keeping with the chocolate theme, here's my little helper making chocolate macaroons. Recipe to come soon.


Yesterday, I showed you my rustic Advent calendar DIY.


I told you we had to hang it up high so Jolene the beagle mix wouldn't chew it. I wasn't kidding. She found it. I caught her twice yesterday climbing up on the arm of the sofa. Here she is just after being caught the second time. Oh, sure, you just wanted to sit on the couch, right Jolene?

How was your week? Any highlights?

Have a wonderful weekend folks!

    1. I didn't actually have any of the chocolate. :( I don't think it's a dairy-free chocolate fountain! ;) I hope I can keep Jolene from destroying my fun project!

    1. I love that classic style of home, with the centre hall plan. I think it's because there were so many on the TV when I was growing up. Everyone had a giant house. ;)

    1. Thanks. I think the vest is cute too. And Toronto is lovely.

      Jolene is my constant companion. Thank goodness she behaves better when the kids are at school! Have a great week too!
