Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! 

We had a crazy busy, fun-filled day yesterday! I got the boys donuts for breakfast, then they both had parties at school that I was in charge of (Walker from 12-1 p.m. and Knox from 1-2 p.m.), and then we had a family party at our friends Brittany and Caleb's house. Whew! It was a sweet little day, though. I love doing small things to make even a cheesy holiday a little more magical.

I found the little plates in Target's Dollar Aisle! Walker got these jammies and this book

If you missed it on Wednesday, I shared a few before-and-after photos of our new foyer area. You can read that post here

A little preview (before):

I made some really yummy recipes for dinner this week and wanted to share. I am absolutely no food photographer, as I'm sure you can tell. ;) We absolutely loved the Dijon-Maple Chicken with Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash and the Crock Pot Orange Chicken was also great, too (and out of my cooking comfort zone). 

We had one gorgeous day full of sunshine earlier this week and so the boys and I went outside to play with chalk. (I love chalking on the driveway!) While we were out there, I introduced them to hopscotch, and they loved it! It was such a sweet reminder of childhood. (Excuse our giant trash bins photobombing these pictures.)
