Happy Friday! We are having a few neighbors over to the house tonight, so I'll be spending today cooking and, of course, cleaning, because that's what I do.
I'm looking forward to a fun few days--and another 3-day weekend! We're thinking we may take the kids ice skating or bowling or something like that on Monday, to take advantage of the day off since our winter break was mostly spent lying on the couch with the flu.
Here are a few links to some stuff I found cool and/or interesting this week:
My boys really wanted Paracord Survival bracelets like this that they saw at a sporting goods store (for quite a bit of money), but I knew I could find a tutorial to make them!
I've made a few infinity scarves as gifts over the last few years...this is a great tutorial from the amazing Purl Bee.
A super-easy recipe for DELICIOUS homemade cheez-its! Matt and my kids all loved these.
Matt made this miso-ginger salmon for dinner last week and it was amaaaaazing!
What do you think about Centsational Girl's Top Ten Kitchen Trends Here to Stay? I love a lot of these looks...
I'm kind of obsessed with this vintage-looking oven. I wonder how easy it would be to actually use...
And since I apparently have kitchens on the brain, here is a link to one of my favorite kitchens ever.
With four kids and a puppy playing in the yard non-stop, our grass was looking really rough at the end of last Fall. I'm thinking come Spring I might need to follow this plan so we don't have a dirt patch where our lawn should be.
I really want a firepit in our yard. Something like this would be amazing (I'll take the waterfront property and the boat, too, actually!)
Lately, my kids have been complaining about fairness a lot, which drives me crazy. Maybe I'll just show them this.
Would it be bad parenting to hang this in my childrens' bedrooms? :)
Did you watch the Golden Globes? Lupita Nyong'o was the most beautifully dressed and styled, in my opinion. Who was your fave?
I think I pretty much NEED this sundress. It's perfect in every way.
Enjoy and have a great long weekend, everyone!
