I hope this month continues in the same upswing as last month.

It started out great…it’s my sweetie’s birthday :)  Happy birthday Kimm!!!

Plans for today…first the food because food is GOOD–bagels/cream cheese for breakfast, pizza, fries and Frosty for lunch, taco salad and ice cream cake for dessert!   Mmmm!

Presents were opened…

Don’t you just love how Izzy has to get in on the action :)

The ONLY bad part about today…that I have to go in to work tonight.  Oh well, I’m going to just chuck it up to luck of the schedule (my weekend on) and put a smile on my face and just look forward to my next days off.

Enjoy my favorites from around the web this week…

Favorite snack-y bite…this Super Easy Bean Dip looks creamy, cheesy and oh so delicious!  Maybe I’ll make it for the Superbowl??

  1. I die laughing every time I see that photo of how I really look running because I’m pretty sure I look even more ridiculous. And the one about the treadmill is so true. I may have reconciled my feelings about the treadmill, but wow does that thing make time drag. Maybe the treadmill is the fountain of youth because time actually stands still while it keeps moving along.

    Oh wow that coconut smoothie looks incredible. I’m all about Trader Joe’s light coconut milk right now. Great post Kaye. I always learn something new, find great new recipes and get inspired when you post your Friday Favorites. Thanks.

    • Ha ha Aimee…I figured you might find those running ones funny :) SO TRUE how time seems to stand still on the treadmill!

  2. Happy Bday to Kimm! Thanks for linking 3 of my posts – brownies, cake, and the smoothie! I’m honored and so glad you like them! Looks like a great bday & enjoy the weekend!
