Belated Birthday Celebration…and Friday Favorites, 2013: Week 10

Friday, March 8, 2013


We celebrated three birthdays…mine, Kimm’s and her dad’s 🙂

A very good meal of carrots (with butter and brown sugar with orange peel), corn, broccoli casserole and a new roasted potato dish with asparagus, grape tomatoes and a Dijon vinaigrette.  Everything tasted so delicious!

Cake and ice cream for dessert!

It may take us a while, but we always get around to celebrating all the birthdays!

Enjoy my favorites from around the web this week…

Favorite frugal post.. Saying “The Little Things Don’t Matter” Is An Excuse.  An argument that states financial success is helped by the repetition of many “little” savings.  

Favorite “do-it-yourself” snackEasy Homemade Yogurt.  This is definitely something I want to try making at home to save money.

Favorite book I want to readThe 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts.  According to this book people show love in different ways…definitely sounds like an interesting read.  I’m pretty sure Kimm and I do NOT speak the same language 🙂

Favorite GREEN treat…what with St. Patty’s Day around the corner, these Key Lime Cupcakes would be perfect!
