fun links


the weather has been so wacky lately.  we have had several snow storms this winter, and each has been followed by a period of rain that washes away the snow and leaves everything looking brown and muddy.  gross.

for the past few days, it has been bitter cold.  like much of the country, we have been experiencing subzero temperatures, and the wind chill factor has been unreal.  yesterday it "warmed up" to 20-something degrees.  today we woke up to yet another snow storm, and it looks like a winter wonderland outside again.  tomorrow the weather forecasters are predicting a high of 55 degrees.  what?!  this is really crazy.

anyway, i am so happy that it's friday today!  this week has been absurdly busy.  unfortunately, it doesn't look like the weekend will be any calmer.  oh well, at least we keep ourselves busy!  since it's friday, here are a few fun links that i found around the internet recently:

i made these spinach and feta quinoa bites for dinner last night in an effort to use up the spinach and feta that i had leftover from my greek-themed birthday party last weekend.  they were really good!

how pretty is this bow bun?!

having a party?  try making this cafe mocha punch.

i absolutely love the look of these colorful mismatched dresser knobs against the plain white dresser drawers.

this dad packed some pretty cool lunches for his kids!

are you taking down your christmas tree and your decorations this weekend?  here's a creative way to store your christmas ornaments.

and last but not least, these pictures of frozen lighthouses on lake michigan are unbelievable.

have a great weekend!
love, laurie

The frozen lighthouse pictures are a trip. I love the way the ice was formed by the wind in some of the pictures. You would look good in that hair bow bun, you should try it.
I think I will make the spinach bites, sounds delicious.
