Friday Favorites and a Family Moment 8/27/10

What a week we have had!  I spoke earlier about our birthday celebration weekend.  Things didn't quite go as planned but all in all Jonah was pleased.  I would show you some pics of the festivities but sadly I have none.  

If you haven't gotten a chance to check out the cool handmade birthday cards Jonah received you can check them out here.

I did however manage to take a few pictures of Jonah on her first day of school which was Monday.  She was very excited to go to school.  Now both of the girls are in school and if I ever get things caught up around here like cleaning and organizing I may just have a moment to do some crafting.

I love browsing blogs for inspiration on crafting, sewing, cooking and decorating.  This week I came across some really cool blogs.

Here are my Friday Favorites this week:

A Whisk and a Prayer had this Slow Baked Mac and Cheese that makes me salivate just looking at it.  Yum!

Craft-O-Maniac shared a tutorial on making the CUTEST Mummy Treat jars I have ever seen!

Okay you have to stop by this girls website.....she is only 14 years old and AMAZING!!  Simply Handmade by Paige took a plus size dress and made it into a super cute little black dress any teen would love.

And finally.....Leafy Treetop Spot shared how she made 3 pairs of the most adorable baby booties.
