Valentine’s Day tends to be overshadowed in our house. The boys’ birthday is on February 15th, so we are usually knee deep in birthday preparations or parties on Valentine’s Day. But, I still want to show some extra sweet love to the boys, and Natalie, during the month of February. We started the 14 Days of Love on February 1, and we’ve been going strong every since ! Although, we are still a week from Valentine’s Day. But, I wanted to share this with you, in hopes that you can start this fun tradition in your house for the next 7 days. On Valentine’s Day, we’ll culminate with a gift card to their favorite place as an extra special treat.
Hello! It’s Kelly from Here Comes the Sun. Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday for kids. They get lots of love and candy and cards… and more candy. In addition to all the treat that the holidays bring, I always like to come up with holiday themed activities for the kids too. My daughter is in first grade and she enjoys BINGO so I made this free printable Valentine Bingo game to play with her. With the weather like it is right now in most parts of the US, these types of games are a life saver when you are stuck at home on snow days.
If you’ve been around My Favorite Finds for long enough, you’ll notice there have been some changes. We’ve gone through blog makeovers, contributors have come and gone, and most recently you’re noticing more travel related posts here! Why? Let me tell you.
Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you’re ready for a little spice today to break through the cold weather. As much as we love to hit up our local taco shop, some days it’s just easier to set up a taco bar at home. Everyone can add the toppings they like, and there’s no fussing – especially with my seasoned chicken for tacos. You could totally make this recipe for burritos, tostadas, and chimichangas too. Have fun with it!
I hope by now you all know my unhealthy obsession with anything Chocolate and Peanut Butter. Happy New Year everyone! I am so excited to be here today to share one of my weaknesses….Peanut Butter and Chocolate. No matter what my good eating intentions are at the beginning of the New Year, peanut butter and chocolate is the exception to the rules!
Seeing their FAVORITE characters up close and in “real life” is the highlight of most trips to Walt Disney World for so many children and their parents. I remember so many wonderful character interactions on all of our trips-from my daughter giving Sorcerer Mickey a kiss on the nose, to Minnie Mouse playing peek a boo with her, to the boys STILL enjoying a good interaction with Donald Duck-it has always been a part of our Disney trips to make sure our children saw their favorite characters up close and personal.
Who here when they think of etched monograms, thinks super traditional? *Picture me with my hand raised.* I’m here to tell you that a monogram does not have to be traditional–in fact, you can be very “mod” with a monogram…and with etched glass.
Have you made your menu for the big game coming up? I know my hubby is super excited that his Broncos are in the Superbowl! For once, we will actually be watching it! These Easy Homemade Pretzel Bites will be perfect for your get together, or for an after school snack on these cold winter days. I’ve made these several ways. I’ve done them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and in my mini muffin tin. I tend to like them better in the muffin tin size wise. Remember to shape them smaller than what you think they should be, because when you put them in the boiling water and then bake them, they tend to puff up! But they are SO good, and you can make them as salt flavored or as Cinnamon Sugar, too!
Hi! It’s Jilly. Today, we’re visiting CHICAGO! Chicago is such a great city. There are so many awesome things to do there. We were there almost a week and we barely scratched the surface!
Here’s a list of some fun places to visit while you’re there:
Are you a family larger than the “typical” family of 4? You know, two adults and two kiddos? Or do you like to travel with extended family? Those Disney vacations with grandparents are some of the best ones! Maybe you were blessed with a little princess or prince as a surprise….yea, totally know how that goes!
