Slices of February

Even though the shortest month of the year was a day longer than usual, it still went by way too fast.  I don’t know how I’m supposed to get everything done if the time flies by at such a high speed!  I’m not ready to give up on my New Year’s goals; I may not have big changes, but I’m working on changes.  Here’s my slices of February!

Friday Favorites: February 17

I’ve been pretty crafty earlier this week gearing up for Valentines.  There’s a quick stop at St. Patrick’s Day and then on to Easter!  Here’s this week’s favorites.

  • I had so much fun playing with my Silhouette and helping my kiddo make her Mustache Valentines.
  • Despite its imperfections, I’m loving my Valentines banner.
  • Book Club is a highlight of any week.
  • I had a rare trip to Costco alone!  Costco is even more expensive when you run out of everything.
  • We took the whole family to Jesterz.  It was the first time the kiddos had been.  They really liked the show, but had a hard time getting home so late.

I found some new favorite ideas from some of my favorite blogs.

  • Booking Mama reviewed a yummy memoir called Charlotte au Chocolat.  It sounds like something I need to read.
  • Chef in Training shared a recipe for Olive Garden Breadsticks.  I want to try making these!
  • If your looking for even fancier bread sticks, these Parmesan and Herb Cheese Straws from Joy the Baker look so cool!
  • Or we could skip the bread all together and enjoy If You’re Happy & You Know it’s story of her sneaky friends celebrating her amazing weight loss journey!

Don’t be shy, share your favorites of the week!
