CurrentlyJen's Friday Favourites - February 25, 2023

I'm a day late for Friday Favourites. Which I feel like is basically my whole life these days...perpetually late for the important stuff (thank you anxiety), and early for the shit that doesn't matter.  Well, let's get right into it. My week was BUSY AF but I did manage to squeeze in a few moments that brought me joy!  Here's my take on Friday Faves...things that made me happy this week: It was Family Day here on Monday in Ontario (stat holiday). We spent the weekend filled with family gatherings, friend visits, dinners, movies, etc. So by Monday, we were all tapped out. The day was a much-needed pyjama and chill day for all of us. Those days are my favourite. Saturday night fun with the hubby I had to go to the office on Tuesday for my in-person work day. It was nice to see everyone but I was tired by the end. I don't think I'll ever get used to so much socializing did I do it five days a week pre-pandemic?? I'll never know! In-office obligatory

Exploring Historic Grimsby Beach

A couple of weeks ago I took the kids on another little adventure. I stumbled on this blog post from In Search of Sarah about these fabulous colourful houses in a town not too far from where I live. 

I packed up the kids and recruited my parents to come with us. We've lived in this area for decades and never knew this little historical area existed. So, I had to share the cuteness with them. 

I won't pretend to be a historian and tell you all the amazing things about these houses but suffice to say, they were just as cute in person as they are in the pictures. 

You can learn more about these houses here:

I LOVED the colour of this home and it was just as fresh looking in person as it is in the photo.

This home was stunning in person, the picture doesn't do it justice. 

The kids wanted to sit on these stools so bad but I wouldn't let them! I had to remind them we were the too look not touch. But I'm not going to lie, I would have loved to have a seat at this super cute tiki bar with a cold drink in my hand!

The artwork and decorative touches on some of these homes were just amazing and so cute. I couldn't resist snapping a few shots of this "Just Breathe" sign. And what a fitting reminder to just stop and breathe while we're still navigating through this pandemic. COVID-19, I'm over you. You can go away now!

We finished the day with a home cooked meal (kids helped Nonna make dinner), a family UNO game, and night swimming. Who says you can't have fun during COVID-19?

What have you been doing to keep busy?
