More Presents!

Oh my goodness!  I have the most amazing friends ever!  First I get a package from Ten Thousand Village via Sarah and then today a mysterious amazon package shows up from Sara!

(I have a lot of friends named Sara(h).  You get used to it.)

Want to know what was in this package?  Well - do you remember this post where I made a kitchen wish list?  She got me the Primo Digital Scale off of the list!  And it's RED!

I love my friends.  Love them.

Anyway, thank you for all of your kind comments on my DIY place mats! I made a couple of more and I'm really happy with the way they all turned out ...

I had enough of the fabric to actually make two of some of them, but I was running out of the tape so I stuck with one for now.

It will be fun to have some variety in my photographs now.  Check out this tutorial over at Young House Love to learn more about the tape.

My mom and I were out running errands today and we went to Panera for dinner!

I got a "pick 2", with half of a Thai Chopped Chicken Salad and a bread bowl with Chicken Noodle Soup.

The salad is new and it is DELICIOUS!  The dressing has a nice spice to it that I'd love to replicate sometime.

And the bread bowl was (as always!) deliciously filling.

Has anyone ever attempted to make their own bread bowl at home?  I can't imagine it's that difficult ...

I came home and decided to try out one of my new place mats with some dessert!  Bruce made my dad's Peanut Butter Pie the other day so I cut myself a nice-sized piece.

Mmm.  Night all.  Only two more hours until I'm 26!


  1. I love that new salad dressing too! I saved the rest of mine for a asian cabbage slaw, so yummy! Happy early birthday, enjoy your weekend!

  2. Awwwww that's so great! Love the placemats too! Happy Valentines Day Sarah!!!

  3. Two things: #1 - YAY for the Sara(h)s and our showering you with birthday love! #2 - I openly covet that red paisley place mat you made!

  4. Happy (early) Birthday!! I hope you have a wonderful day :D

  5. My mom uses her bread machine to make bread bowls a lot. They are great with a wonderful white chili she makes.

  6. Tim and I have talked about making bread bowls before. We have yet to try it, but I don't think it should be too difficult...right?


Hello and thanks for commenting! Unless I have your email address, I respond to all questions directly in the comment form. Check back if you've asked one! xo, Sarah
