Prescription Lab Janvier 2019

 

Ughh! I’m afraid I might be coming down with something. Baby Girl was a bit ill these past few days and I’ve been taking care of her. Every time she’s ill, I silently pray that she gets better quickly and let me get ill instead. An exchange of hostage / prisoner of some sort. Problem is, it works each and every single time. So today, she’s running around and feeling fine and I’m starting to feel like crap.

Thankfully, one good thing did happen today. My Prescription Lab package arrived!

La Galette des Rois

 

If you think you can go on a diet right after the Christmas / New Year break, think again. The first weekend of the year celebrates Epiphany, which marks the day the 3 Kings – Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthasar – came to visit Baby Jesus and in France we eat the famous Galette des Rois or the French King’s Cake. The Galette des Rois is traditionally made of flaky buttery puff pastry and filled with a Frangipane, a creamy almond mixture. Nowadays, you will notice that a lot of Boulangerie / Patisserie like to mix and match new flavors for their Galette des Rois. I like to stick strictly to tradition because I love frangipane!

La Winstub in Metz, France

Since Christmas, Baby Girl has been staying with my niece in the countryside. I can’t wait for her to come back this weekend, but I also enjoy this time where it’s just the Husband and I. Well, not really just us because there’s also work, but you know what I mean. I don’t have to worry about picking Baby Girl up from school, or prepare our meals at the proper time, and think of activities to occupy her. I might be criticized for saying this, but as much as I love my daughter, I do feel the need to take a break for myself and for my couple. I’m aware that I’m super lucky because my family is not too far away and they love having her with them and vice versa. When Baby Girl comes back home, I feel like I’ve been given a breath of fresh air and I feel ready to be a productive mother again.

Hey peeps! It’s my birthday today. Uh-uh, uh-uh!!!

My niece asked me how old I was and I answered her the age of Jesus when he died. She laughed at me and said – « Why is it that you can’t answer a simple question like everyone else? » Ha ha, maybe because I’m not like everyone else! I answered back to her.

Beautiful Box au Feminin – Noel Etoilé – Decembre 2018

 

This is the second Beautiful Box that I’ve received and it is a delight! This month’s box came in an all-black box with golden details. At first glance, it doesn’t make me think of Christmas at all, but when you look closer you see little stars and snowflakes on the box. Even most of the products in the box are black, except for one which is bright pink ( 😬 😬   ).
