Baby Boy Lars is due anytime now (gahhh!) so I’m trying to wrap up the details of his nursery (and work and taxes and life and etc. etc.).

Tootsie Pop Cherry Valentines

Tootsie Pop Cherry ValentinesThank goodness for Valentines Day right? A holiday all about showing love, giving flowers, wearing red and pink, and eating treats? We need more holidays like that. It’s a whole day devoted to love notes! The act of giving valentines is one that I believe should never stop, no matter what age you are. So it’s time to start planning what you’re going to pass out to your friends, family members, co-workers, or whoever you think deserves a little love! We’ve taken a classic candy and turned it into a fruity treat that makes the perfect token of appreciation. These Tootsie Pop Cherry Valentines are super easy to put together and equally delicious. Don’t forget to include a little note: “I love you cherry much!”

Instead of giving myself a makeover for the new year, I’m giving the plants a makeover! Just find some homely faux plants and jazz them up with paint to give them a new life.Paint your plants
