Friday Favorites

Craft SupriseIt’s a magical thing, when you are having a rough day and half your family is ill, and then Granna stops by and puts a bag full of craft supplies, projects, books, and treats on the front porch and everything is better. The boys are getting so used to the family dropping things off on the front porch that they wait now to wave at the window. Their excitement today was groceries, a separate crayon box, balloons, and cupcakes from my sister. J exclaimed “I have my own bat guy now! And my crayooons!” It’s a magical thing. Here’s praying they don’t have to wave from the window too much longer.

That being said, we’ve done quite a bit of sitting this week and here are some of my favorite things I have found! Enjoy! And get your flu vaccines now! I’m wondering if I can pre-order ours next year….or put in for a pre-flu vaccine special. That’d be awesome.

One of the items my Mom dropped off was a stack of orange plates to make these masks.

Modern, black and white, Halloween garland. Does it still count if we put it up after Halloween? I doubt I could do modern, black and white, turkey garland. HA!

If you tell me that you found a lipstick that looks good on everyone you have certainly peaked my interest.

If you’re thinking that I have a lot of craft posts this week, you would be thinking right. Like this awesome straw paper plane.

A boys’ room I love from the low shelf to the garbage truck poster.

Since I will already have buttermilk for the biscuits above, I might as well make some honey bread as well with a meatless Monday meal of cauliflower cheese.
