Friday Favorites {February Fun Edition}

Happy Friday!
Today I'm linking up with Friday Favorites!
Hosted by: Andrea, Erika & Narci


{ONE} 
Friday in our house means Friday Night Pizza Night!
On Friday nights, we usually order pizza or bake a frozen pizza.
But, ever since I got THIS amazing pizza maker, we have been making pizzas! 

This pizza maker is my favorite!
You can get it HERE or HERE.

My favorite flavor pizza we have made so far is BBQ Chicken Pizza. 
Recipe {HERE}

I have been experimenting with other pizza recipes, I will post my next one later this month.
I am going to try and post one new pizza recipe a month.
Yay, Pizza!

 A few months ago, a Free Little Library went up in our neighborhood & it's my Favorite!!
Last week, I stopped by it to see what books they had.
Check out what I got....The Nightingale!!!! I have heard this is an amazing book. I'm so excited to read it!
Funny story...I posted that photo on Instagram & my sister is the one who put The Beach Trees in the little library.

Last Sunday, it was 3rd grade Bible Sunday & all the 3rd graders got their very own Bibles.
We had a weekly class at church with Kate on Wednesday nights & then this past Sunday she was presented her Bible during the church service.
Definitely a favorite moment...Kate recieiving one of my favorite books...The Bible.
I still have my Bible I got when I was in 3rd grade!

These are my favorite booties:
I like them because the heel isn't too high. I am tall....5'9, so I don't like a high heel.
I love the Mushroom:
 And the Black:

So comfortable! They come in 1 other color, black leather.
 Get them HERE.

I'm on a Larabar kick. 
I usually eat Luna bars for breakfast during school, but these Lara bars were on sale at Target, so I decided to try them. YUM!
These are my 3 favorite flavors:

Having San Francisco host the Super Bowl this weekend is my favorite!
Yesterday my older sister and I headed to San Francisco for the afternoon to check out SuperBowl City.
We walked down the street & the first thing we saw was the Budweiser Clydesdales...with a police escort!
View of the Ferry Building:
It was a GORGEOUS February day in San Francisco. We are spoiled here in California.

 They had tons of food trucks in Super Bowl City, but my sister and I went to the food trucks at the Ferry Building....the white tower  is part of the Ferry Building.
We had street tacos from Tacolicious.
 You can never go wrong with street Tacos!
 Then we grabbed coffees from Blue Bottle Coffee:
 Probably the best coffee I have ever had. SO good.
Drinking coffee & looking at the Bay Bridge...Thursday afternoon...you rule!
Then we walked back across the street to Super Bowl City.
There were tons of Broncos fans, a lot of Panthers fans and so many locals were also wearing their 49er gear!
It was really neat how they shut down several city blocks & turned it into Super Bowl City.

 As we were about to leave...Steve Marriuchci (former 49ers coach), Terrell Davis (former Denver Broncos Super Bowl champ) & LaDainian Tomlinson (former NFL MVP) walked by us. I could have touched them (but they had security guards & I didn't want to be "that" girl. 
 They were heading the NFL network booth to film a show with Brett Farve, so of course my sister and I followed them and watched the live interview.
 Brett Farve:
The NFL Network media booth:
  So fun having Super Bowl 50 in our "backyard"
I'm really glad we went to the city to check out all the fun!
So much energy!!!!

This is Ulla's story, "I used soothe for 60 days to get rid of dry, red itchy patches on my cheeks. Then I used Reverse exclusively for 60 days. The eye cream was used the whole time as well. My spots were due to Melasma (pregnancy mask & taking birth control) These photos are 5 years after my daughter was born. Years of summers at the lake didn't help my skin either. Now I will use sunscreen"Thank you Ulla for sharing your amazing results!!!!

Sour Patch Kids & Sour Watermelon Valentines {Free Printables!}

It's time for another Valentine Printable!
When the kids and I went to Target a few weeks ago to pick out their Valentine's class treat, Claire picked out the pack of Sour Patch Kids & Sour Patch Watermelon.
Yep, she is for sure my kid...those are 2 of my favorites! 
There are only 24 kids in her class, yet it came with 40 packs of candy...darn....I guess I will have to make sure those other 16 packs don't go to waste ;)
(Confession: I had 4 of them yesterday)

Here is what you need for these Valentines:
 - Sour Patch Kids and/or Sour Patch Watermelon Candy
-Scissors
- Stapler
- Pen
- Printables (which you can download at the bottom of this post) printed on white paper

Here is a close up of the printables:

I made 2 different versions.  The first one is for the Sour Patch Watermelon candy & it says "Valentine, You are one in a Melon"
So cheesy!!!! But, Claire loved it. 

The 2nd one says "I'll be SOUR if you aren't my Valentine" this would work for the Sour Patch Kids or the Sour Patch Watermelon (if the previous printable is too cheesy for you. Ha!)
 It's so simple to make these..have your child (or you) write on the printables, then cut them out & then staple them to the package of candy. SO easy.
 Claire helped me pick the color scheme for these printables....we went with orange, lime green & pink.

I'll be SOUR if you aren't my Valentine:

I have over 15  FREE Valentine Printables to choose from! 
I have one more Valentine Printable that I am working on.
It's the one that Kate is using for her classmates. She picked out "Flipz"...which are bags of chocolate dipped pretzels that we found at Target in the Valentines section. They are yummy...we all shared a mini bag of them....we had to taste them to make sure they were good enough to give to her classmates ;)
Stay tuned for that printable...I'm still working on it, but will have it posted on Monday!
Let me know if you use any of my printables!
