Friday Favorites {February Fun}

Happy Friday!
Today I'm linking up with Friday Favorites!
 Hosted by: Andrea, Erika & Narci
 I am so excited it's Friday!
We have a mellow weekend, we were planning on heading to Tahoe but there is no snow.....it has been in the 70's & 80's here in the Bay Area the past 2 weeks & in the 60's in Tahoe.
The Groundhog said 6 more weeks of Winter...clearly that did not include California winter.
What happened to winter?!?! It decided to skip California this year! 
My kids wore shorts to school everyday this week! Crazy!

Making Valentine's Treats is my Favorite.
 Chocolate Peanut Butter Heart Cookies  // Valentine Hugs & Kisses

  Ritzies // Valentine Popcorn
Every year, we make a variety of goodies & deliver them to neighbors & friends.

I give these to my girls teachers & the School office staff, custodian, crossing guard, etc.

 My very favorite kitchen appliance is my Instant Pot.
I can't stop and won't stop talking about this either! LOL!


 It is way better than a crock pot because it can slow cook food, but it is also a pressure cooker. I can cook some of my slow cooker meals in the Instant Pot in under an hour! You need one in your life.
I have posted about 10 Instant Pot recipes so far...stay tuned for A LOT more!
My Top 5 favorite Instant Pot recipes that I make the most are:
Instant Pot Chicken Fajita Soup (I will be blogging this SOON!!!!)

The 5qt, 6 qt the 8qt are available & on sale! I have the 6 qt size.

 It's Girl Scout Cookie time!
This is Kate's 6th & final year being a Girl Scout & the cookie sales are her favorite.
The Samoa's & Thin Mints are my favorites.
I like to put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the thin mint and make a mini ice cream sandwich out of it. SOOOOO Good.
But my kryponite are Samoas....I have no self control over them. 
 They are my favorite all time Girl Scout cookie!
 What is your favorite Girl Scout Cookie?


 {SEVEN}
Tulips are my favorite. Forget Roses.....give me tulips!
 Once February arrives, I love having fresh tulips on our kitchen table.
 Trader Joe's has the best tulips!
Pink ones are my favorite....I love this bunch I got...they are ombre pink. So pretty!


{EIGHT}
I found this series called Sew Zoey and it is currently Kate's favorite book series right now (besides Harry Potter, of course...nothing will top that)
There are 14 books in the series. If you are looking for a book series for a 9-12 year old, these are really cute. 
Kate got a sewing machine for Christmas & is taking sewing lessons and she loves to read, so this series is perfect for her. 
You can get them HERE.

  Making Valentine Printable is my favorite...I seriously have a problem...I am obsessed with making them! Ha!

Last week we picked out what the kids wanted to give this year.
Kate chose Sour Patch Kids/Sour Watermelon, Claire chose Fun Dip & Luke chose the Chewy Bars.

 The Olympics are my favorite!
My parents took my sisters and I to the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics & it was amazing.
You can read about it HERE.
On my bucket list is to also attend the Winter Olympics.
The Winter Olympics started last night & we are looking forward to watching the Opening Ceremonies are tonight.

Watching the Olympics this year without Bob Costas hosting just isn't the same. He was the best & one of my favorite parts of the Olympics, I loved his commentary & his interviews.
Our favorite Winter Olympics events are Figure Skating, Speed Skating & the Downhill Skiing events.


What is your favorite event to watch?

So, there you have it. 10 of my Favorites so far this February.
Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. This may not sound fair, because it’s not

      But did you know that you can be a guy’s dream girl...

      I mean, you can literally check off every box on his “perfect woman” list...

      But if you mess up this one thing, he’ll drop you the second another option comes along?

      My friend James Bauer discovered this missing “secret ingredient” all men are constantly searching for in a woman.

      And most women have no clue it exists because guys aren’t even aware of it.

      We just KNOW when it’s missing.

      ===> The “Secret Ingredient” to obsessive love <=====

      The really cool thing is, when you know how to give a man this “secret ingredient”...

      It will send a shockwave of desire for you straight to his brain and he will HAVE to have you.

      In fact, when you do this... watch his face light up, almost as if he’s just been zapped.

      It’s that moment when he says to himself “Where have you BEEN all my life?”

      Every woman should know this. Check it out here: ====> Why men leave “perfect” women... <=====

  4. Love your “favorites” post today. Peonies and roses are my favorite but those tulips are beautiful so I’m gonna give them a try. I love the Olympics too and as I was watching the opening ceremonies and the small amount of coverage that did Thursday, I kept thinking to myself it didn’t seem the same. Now I remember why. Bob Costas was missing. Here’s to the next 2 weeks of late night watching.
