weekend projects galore

Friends, I have a confession.

We don't celebrate Valentine's Day. I know some people say that, but really secretly love it. I'm just not one of those people and, luckily, neither is my husband. See, I work really hard to show the people in my life that I love them every day. Every.single.day. With that said, I find it hard to know what to do with a day dedicated to this. Hmm.

But never fear. I have a couple awesome projects planned for this weekend.

1. We're attending a birthday party on Saturday night and at the request of the birthday girl, I'll be making this beautiful red velvet cake

2. I will attempt to turn this IKEA blanket:

Into cafe curtains for these windows:

Because this is how close our neighbors are:

We really like our neighbors, but we don't need to see right into their kitchen window when we're eating dinner, which we do. Check back on Monday to see if I can turn my vision for the curtains into reality.

Until then, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend filled with lots of love and happiness!


  1. Forgive me, but I can't figure out how to sign up for email updates for your blog! I can see where to follow you on twitter, and subscribe via feeds that you have to actively check (but then I always forget to check) but I don't see where to get email updates.


  2. I don't see it, but I can tell you how to add it if you want! I have a blog too (just for my fam.. nothing exciting) and I have it added. Let me know if you need instructions!

  3. Wow! Great job with the kitchen curtains. Love the texture!

  4. It's nice to know that my partner and I are not the only ones on this planet that really don't celebrate Valentines Day...for the same reason as you mentioned! Thanks :-)
