Friday Favorites: Valentine's Day Again?!

It's Valentine's Weekend!
Wait, that was last weekend or is it this weekend?
We celebrated last weekend but maybe you are celebrating this weekend.
I'm back today to share some of my favorites!
I'm linking up with ErikaNarci and Andrea
Grab their graphic and linkup with your favorites from the week.

Paint and Sip

Last weekend we had a night out with some friends. 
We enjoyed a scrumptious meal together at Carrabba's (hello Fettuccine Carrabba) and then did a paint and sip. 
Now, I'm not artistic and have horrible hand eye coordination, so I go to have fun. 
I don't expect my painting to be the best!

Our finished product!

Super Simple Supper

On Wednesday I blogged about Poorman Steak and Semi-Homemade Apple Pie.

January Book Review

On Monday I shared five books I read in January. 
Check them out here

One was on budgeting, one was on overcoming real life, one was on overcoming a snow storm and two were science fiction. 

Plant Update

 Two weeks in and my violet geraniums look like this!

I plan to plant the rest of my flowers from seed this weekend.
On my list are lots of impatiens and calibrochoa. 

Tulips for Thought

I grabbed these pretty little tulips as I was heading to the checkout counter at the grocery store earlier this weekend. 

They haven't opened, but I love a little bit of color and happiness on my table.

Today we have an in-service today and Monday we are off.
In addition, it's supposed to be 60 here this weekend. Unheard of!
Have a great day!


  1. Love the tulips- spring break will be here soon enough! Have you had Mama Mandola's soup at Carraba's? It is so good that I sometimes just get that as my meal. We only have Monday off, but an inservice today sounds nice! Happy weekend!

  2. I love the Paint and Sip events, they are so fun!

  3. Love your tulips! Such a pretty color for this time of year!

  4. Love the tulips! the blush is my favorite! headed to look at that homemade apple pie :)

  5. Ok, so how weird...last Friday I also had dinner at Carrabbas with friends and then we went to Painting With a Twist!! Wouldn't it be crazy if we were at the same one?!
