February Favorites

February sure zoomed by quickly at our house!  It was a good month and I'm ready to recap it today.  Although current events around the world are so heavy this week.  We are praying for everyone and feeling really heart broken for all of the families who are hurting.

My favorite moments:

 1 // Walking Buddy

Leo and I are starting to get into a good walking routine.  We bundle up, get out the stroller and walk briskly.  He's happy to ride along as long as we bring snacks, stop and watch the construction equipment and pick up rocks/sticks along the way.  

2 // Best Meal of the Week

We had taco night twice this week and this salad was SO SO good.  My family loves and I love that if I make all the ingredients we can all personalize our plates.  My husband usually makes nachos, the kids like a mix of soft tacos and all the ingredients separate.

3 // 2-22-22 Twos Day

The kids school had dress up themes and lots of 2 activities in kindergarten to celebrate this fun 2s day.

4 // School lunches

This combo has been a big hit - Hawaiian rolls, sandwich ingredients to build a sandwich or to eat separate, a variety of crackers, lots of crunchy veggies, fruit and valentine's day candy.

5 // Dollar Tree Notes

I love these Dollar Tree note pads for lunch box notes.  You can find them in the teacher section and you get a whole pad of them for $1ish.  I write on them with a Sharpie and add them to the kid's lunch boxes.

6 // Lunchables

My kids tried Lunchables for the first time this week and they can't quit talking about them.  They loved these nacho ones.  It was their first Lunchable experience and they'd highly recommend them.

7 // Wish Dragon

We watched this cute movie on Netflix this week and it was great!  Perfect for family movie night.

8 // Donatos

We tried a new pizza place and it was delicious!!  The cheesey bread and crispy pepperonis were so good.

9 // Target Run

I love living near Target again after all these years of not having one in my city.  I picked up these clear organizing bins this week.  They're perfect for bathrooms or cats or toddlers.  Everyone liked them!  They're heavy duty, but the plastic is flexible.  They can stack and seem like they'd be really durable (ot break if kids dropped them).  They're $12 each for the 12x12 size and I think I'm going to get a few more.  I love being able to see what's inside the bin.

10 // Our bedroom

We got curtains hung, got some new pillow covers, did some rearranging and our bedroom is starting to come together.  I'm still on the hunt for a few more things, but I love the direction its heading.

11 // Sisters

I know I mention this regularly,  but if you ever have the chance to adopt siblings for pets, do it!  The kids totally talked us into getting sisters when we intended to get a kitten and I'm so glad they did.  Penny & Pearl are the best of friends.

I hope you have a great weekend!

  1. Too funny but whenever we make tacos my kids have soft shell tacos, my husband makes himself nachos, and I always make a taco salad! Those clear bins are perfect and I love that the cat and your son think so too. LOl

  2. What a great week.your sister kitties have the cutest expressions. Your bedroom is looking great, and love those new organizing bins. You’ll have to show us what you do with them. Hope you’re having a great weekend :)

  3. I remember eating the nachos lunchables when I was in school. Donatos was my favorite pizza place when I went to school in Indy. And they built the Donatos in Evansville after we left the NICU. It would've been handy since we were down the road! Crazy how the month is already over.

  4. I started laughing when I read that the bins were perfect for cats. We have a cat that can't stay out of any box or bin!


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
