Finally getting back to our regular schedule. I’m still a bit sad that Christmas isn’t until another 12 months!
Back To Our Regular Schedule
Just the two of us
My daughter is still trying to get used to the fact that her big brother isn’t here when she wakes up. On day three she stopped going into his bedroom to check. Now we are back on our regular schedule. I like it because she naps when she’s supposed to, and she’s way less hyper! We’ve had freezing weather (-23) pretty much all week, but we dressed up warm and went on short walks. I still don’t understand how this child doesn’t feel cold!
Good Bye For Now
After three weeks of Demo giving me major side eyes. I reluctantly took the Christmas tree down. My daughter wasn’t too happy it go.
Crotte de Papa!
Two weeks ago, Demo’s dad came by for a little visit. He brought with him a desert that he calls “Crotte de Papa.” The whole thing sounded gross. In case you are not familiar with the word “crotte,” it’s French for “poop.” Demo said it was delicious and I just ignore him. But yesterday, he insisted on making the recipe. Don’t worry; it’s not real poop! LOL, It’s chocolate with walnuts. But by the picture, it really does look like poop!
His recipe needs a bit of fine-tuning. It wasn’t as “chewy” as the Crotte his father made last week. Once he gets it right, he will share the recipe. I tasted, it’s delicious! HEHE
I’m not big on selfies, but after trying the 100% PURE® semi-matte lipstick (Pink Canyon), I just had to share it. Their products are 100% natural and cruelty-free. I have to be careful on what I put on my lips after getting a severe allergy reaction to some dollar store brand that I tried recently. Thankfully, 100% PURE® is free of harmful toxins. What do you guys think of the color? They are currently running a Friends and Family Sale. 20% off the entire site!! Don’t miss it!
I finally got my 2017 blogging goals posted last night, and I’ve been working on some new recipes for the blog.
What fun things do you have planned for the week?

I love that lipstick on you and I’ll have to check out 100% Pure. BTW that Crotte de Papa does look like poop. I won’t be able to eat it anyway since it contains nuts but my kids would love it and I’m sure with practice, Demo’s recipe will be just as good as his dad’s.

I can not wait to try the Crotte de Papa recipe once you post it. I think my kids will love it. That lip color looks amazing on you.

The poop bit is pretty funny! I’m usual;y a bit bummed to take the tree down as well, I love the smell and having the kids home relaxing.

LOL it’s funny to learn a new word crotte means poop hahaha! really love that! Your lipstick is really nice the shade is perfect for you.
I’m just trying to feel better – down with the flu currently. And trying to keep up with work.
Sarah-Louise Bailey says
That shade really looks good on you, it’s like a natural lip color of yours.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
Your daughter is so cute! I can’t believe she still loves walking outside in this freezing weather! I had to look real close at that thing. I wish there was a way to make it less “poop” looking. Maybe a little dusting of powdered sugar? 🙂
Marielle Altenor says
Yes, she a crazy child! As for the crotte, I don’t know how to make it less poop looking either! LOL I will try the powdered sugar idea!
robin masshole mommy says
Eh, nothing overly exciting is happening here. Just the same old/same old – which is not a bad thing.
Lisa Rios says
I am with you when it comes to feeling that Christmas ends so sooner than you think. With back to regular schedule I am all about staying restless with my kids and my work from home tasks every day will keep me busy too.
Rachel Mouton says
It sounds like everything is falling into place. Okay, that chocolate does look like poop LOL But, I am intrigued and would love to have the recipe and try it 😉

This week I’m prepping to speak at the Blogathon conference. Wow! The Crotte de Papa does look like poop haha
Marielle Altenor says
lol It really does hehe! My son didn’t want to try it because of that!
We have the same sweet in my country but we call it a much better way: “biscuits salami”. Besides walnuts we also add biscuits and turkish delight. It looks pretty much the same but it is so yummy!
That’s such a pretty lipstick colour! I’ve never tried that brand before but I’m going to have to check them out, I love natural and cruelty-free brands!
Tami Qualls says
The shade compliments your complexion perfectly. I like these shades over the bright ones.
Amber Myers says
That lipstick is so pretty!
I’m working to get back to a regular schedule. The holidays can be crazy!

This chewy treat looks so good. I know the feeling of when you don’t have your siblings with you. We’ve been away from my family for more than three years and it hasn’t been easy. Every now and then I feel myself get a little sad.
Hang in there little cutie!
Elizabeth O. says
Going back to the daily grind is kinda tough when you’re used to the Holidays! I’m missing it big time. That dessert freaked me out a little bit, I saw the picture before reading the description. Glad to know it tastes good though.
Amy Jones says
Taking the tree down is so upsetting! Like I don’t want christmas to go away hahahh
Heather Pfingsten says
I’ve had a great deal going on health-wise so I am trying to live a low key life … much easier said than done. Today, we are cooking for the blog and working on continue to pack our home as we sold it and have to move out by the end of February. The week itself, like normal, is going to be super busy with my daughter’s extra curricular activities and so much more. Here is wishing you a happy and healthy week!
Your baby is adorable!!! It is so hard getting back into a regular schedule, I think I might be going through vacation withdrawal myself. Cause I just cannot seem to be able to get back into a “normal” schedule. I mean, it is so much easier said than done, but I will get back into it asap. 🙂
Happy New Year. I need to post my own blog goals for the year. You can’t get to where you want to go without knowing where you want to go, lol.
Nothing crazy this week. Calm and peaceful 🙂
Ahhhh this week was a rather slow week!!! We have been nonstop for ever now so it’s nice to take a break every once in awhile
Ayesha Heart says
Perfect! Looks so good on you 🙂 Can’t wait for the recipes yay!
