Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week! We continued to have more illness in our family this week, so we are sure looking forward to the weekend. As usual, I am sharing some favorites in the way of home, style and family!

Valentine’s Healthier Brownie Recipe

My new favorite treat of the week is this Healthier Brownie Recipe from Nesting with Grace. I like how she uses heart cookies to decorate the brownies for Valentine’s Day. We didn’t have heart cookies, so I used some Valentine’s sprinkles. The brownies are so good. Instead of any flour, you use almond butter and egg. The texture is a little different than your typical brownie but oh so good!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Brownies

A fun and easy to make treat! You might have everything you need to make these brownies, so I definitely recommend giving these a try. Plus, Nesting with Grace has a free  cute recipe printable.

Teen Gift Idea

Next week is my daughter’s birthday and we will officially have a teenager in the house! I can not even handle it. I sure miss those baby days, but big kids are certainly a lot of fun. Gift buying gets a lot harder as the kids get older. However, I found this fun gadget on sale that I think she will really like. If you have someone in your life that loves to take pictures, this might be a great gift for them. You can instantly send pictures from your phone to this printer. The pictures print onto 2 X 3 photo paper that has a sticky back. So you could put them in a sticker book. More than likely, my daughter will want to hang the pictures with some twinkly lights.

I’ve been eyeing one of these photo printers for a while now, and it is over 60% off, so it was a deal not to pass up.

Cheer on Netflix

In case you haven’t heard, Cheer is just about the biggest new show on Netflix. My daughter and I starting watching it this week and we are HOOKED. The documentary follows the Navarro Cheer Team in Texas. Everyone, including the coach, is so likeable that you can’t help but root for the team. I think it is a great story about grit, determination and the highs and lows of youth athletics. I like that my daughter is watching the series too.


It is only 6 episodes and we have just two more to go. Definitely recommend this series! In case you are like me and don’t know what to watch after Cheer, here are 5 Shows to Watch If You Like Cheer.

Free Printables

This week, I shared two fun printables on the blog! There are a lot of fun events coming up including the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day!

Super Bowl Commercial Bingo

First, if you have plans to watch the Big Game this weekend, then you will want to download these Super Bowl Bingo Cards! It is a fun way to watch the game especially if you are in it for the food and commercials:)

    All those food photos are making me so hungry! I am definitely pinning that printer as a possible gift idea for my nieces. Tweens and teens can be so hard to buy for but I do love this age too.

    I have not watched Cheer yet. I had thought about getting a printer like that at one point but never did!
