This cute pink and green striped acrylic tray for only $9.99
How cute is this pink & green acrylic basket? It was $14.99.
I also spotted these market totes. I found the exact same ones in Marshall's & TJ Maxx for $9.99 compared to the $34.99 at the Container Store. I love to give these as gifts filled with fun surprises from my gift closet. I've found some in red, lime green & blue. I came across some other totes like these at Hobby Lobby, but instead of the aluminum frame they were white plastic. With a 40% coupon, you could get them there for around $6. Not too bad.

- Today was Bonus Baby's Valentine's Pizza Party at preschool so I didn't have to make her lunch. That extra 7 minutes this morning was so nice.
- My full tank of gas that Mr. Madras so kindly filled up last night.
- A dear friend who offered to do carpool pick up today
- SUNSHINE!! We've had a couple of dreary days so the sun is such a treat.
I'm about to try and be a bit domestic in the kitchen & make these yummy sounding "chocolate pretzel buttons". I found the complete recipe and instructions at Enamor via one of my favorite crafty blogs, Craftzine. My 13-year-old thought these looked like a great Valentine's Day gift for her buddies. We'll see....

The best part is you can monogram all of these. They've got great choices for monogram styles and motifs. Check them out here . I'll let you know which one (or two or three) I decide on. Oh, and here's a site kStyle that seemed to have pretty good deals on Henry Brown bags.
Now, I'm off to attempt to conquer "Mt. Washmore." I've procrastinated long enough and the mountain appears to be ready for an avalanche at any moment. Wish me luck...

How fun do these look??? I found this idea while visiting one of my favorite blogs, How About Orange. Jessica always has neat ideas & projects with a funky flair. While I'm not much of a cook, I think these look very doable even for me. Some oranges and jello and I'm all "set". Here are the step by step instructions courtesy of Not Martha. For a fun twist, here's a recipe with vodka from The Food Network. For a little pink & green preppy flair, maybe some pink grapefruit and honeydew melon???
