I took a couple ballet classes and I am hooked again. I used to dance pretty much everyday for close to 18 years. After having my second baby I decided I wanted to try it again after taking the Pure Barre classes. Those really helped me get my body ready. I can't wait to find a studio in Georgia so I can at least take a class a week. Feels so good to do something you love.

I have had these books I bought from the Dollar Tree for months and I finally got to use some pages. I loved how this bunting turned out and it was $1!
I also bought a couple packages of dollies also at the Dollar Tree. I just sewed them together and it make cute garland for the stairs and above our table. Nothing better than a cute inexpensive craft! Hopefully this inspires your Valentine's crafts!

I love a good excuse to try a new recipe and idea. It was my good friend's 30th birthday and her husband planned a surprise party and we were in charge of the cake. He told us that Kit Kat's were her favorite and I remember seeing a cake done like this so I thought I'd try my hand at it. And I have seen a bunch of these little banners like this and thought the cake needed one for sure! And since I left it plain I will be able to use it again and again. After I baked a regular cake box mix I used roughly 36 Kit Kat and broke them apart every two bars. Then poured a bag of M&M's on the top and tied it with a ribbon so it would give it a little more support. My daughter and I happened to eat at Panda Express the day before and I just grabbed an extra pair of chopsticks for the banned and used a diamond stencil and paper I had laying around. I love how it turned out and my friend was very surprised and love her cake!
