Only 5 more days until it’s officially Spring!  While I know these changes won’t be visible overnight, it’s nice to know we’re almost there.  In celebration we’ve taken down our paper snowflakes and put up these fun butterflies, made from pages of old magazines.

How to Make Magazine Butterflies

Head on over to The Creative Mama to find out how to make some of your own.  Have a great weekend!

Welcome to March! Can I just say, that although I know this month can still bring some snow, the fact that it is March 1st means that April is only one month away. And that means SPRING! This week more than any I’ve heard more people say that they are tired of winter. ‘Tis the season I think. Stores are full of spring colors and clothes. There is talk of Easter and gardens. And in 9 short weeks, I’ll be running my favorite spring half marathon. Each week I cross off the training calendar brings sunshine and warmth just a little closer.

Snow is the word of the day around here.  A lot of it.  School has been cancelled, the pantry has been stocked and I am thinking hot chocolate.  A lot of it.  I imagine there will be plenty of movie watching, pj wearing and all around hibernating going on as well. Oh, and Minecraft too, it’s the latest boy obsession.

Mexican Hot Chocolate

Today, I am over at ‘The Creative Mama’ sharing a recipe for Mexican Hot Chocolate.  It’s the latest addition to my growing list of warming winter drinks.  Enjoy!

Are you starting to think all we do around our house is bake cookies and chocolate cake?

Unfortunately, it’s not. Brussels sprouts, tomato soup and enchiladas have made their way to our table lately too.  However, since it’s Friday, and the end of a good week, filled with good news, I’m going to share one more sweet treat to celebrate it in the form of some heart shaped, shortbread cookies.
