Sarianne posted some Instagrams of us using the karaoke machine at her party on Saturday night and hashtagged the company that provided it. Then she went onto their website and saw that the pictures all ended up on the company's social media page, meaning that we are
kinda sorta FAMOUS for a few days when our pics will no doubt be replaced by newer ones!!!

Last night was Sarianne's thirty-fifth birthday party, a super fun karaoke fest that kept me up approximately six hours past my bedtime. So worth it, but needless to say we were all pretty pooped today and not because we over did it with the pink cocktails, but because we danced our dang feet off.

… then I tested something Sarianne had written about on her blog. I put some rice in a ziplock bag along with a couple drops of green food coloring and then put the green rice in an empty tin and added some dinosaurs. He was entranced for a totally unlikely amount of time and Sarianne was my biggest idol at that point.

Yesterday after work, Linda and her girls met up with me and my boy at McDonald's for a play/dinner date. Not only do I enjoy a good burger'n'fries, but I was very impressed to see how hands-on Alicia was with the little kids so that Linda and I could eat. She actually seemed to enjoy it, too, which totally makes me wanna either adopt or employ a ten-year-old.

fiddle leaf fig for this spot in our hallway, but I've had a hard time finding one. (Read: Ikea doesn't sell them.) So I googled around a bit and found a houseplant that I liked the look of that should thrive in the low-ish light there, all things being equal. All things are not equal, however, as I am notorious for killing houseplants. I'm a bit emotionally attached to the three succulents I've kept alive since last summer and I'm already kind of in love with this schefflera, though, so send good thoughts its way, y'all.

I picked up Jambo from school today since his papa is away competing at the Swedish Ice-Fishing Masters. It was still light out, for a change, so I strapped Jamie's helmet on and dragged him on his snow racer to the hill around the corner from our house. I obviously wasn't the only one with that plan in mind and the hill was packed. Everyone had great manners, though, and we didn't have to wait long before it was our turn. And again. And again. And again. And it wasn't just Jamie who wanted to keep riding. It was SO MUCH FUN, you guys. If you, like I, haven't been on a sled since you were a kid, I urge you to get out there this weekend and remember.
