Intentions for the Week:

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Happy Monday, friends!

Another week ahead of us. It’s Valentine’s Day this week. That means you can eat all the chocolate you want, right?  I have a batch of brownies on our counter for my boys. Mama knows the way to their hearts.  I finally cleaned out my car yesterday after I did meal prep and I’m so HAPPY.  Now I just need to wait for it to stop raining to clean the outside but there’s so much pollen around here right now, what’s the point?

Speaking of meal prep…

Carrying on my Mom’s tradition! We’re making chocolate lollipops for classmates.

Ladies Craft Night- Valentine’s Day Edition.

My version of Galentine’s day. I can’t believe I just typed that word. lol

Heart Shaped Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

I made these for Cooper’s class one year. We packaged them up with our Valentine’s. They’re so easy to make if you need to use up flour tortillas.

Simple Valentine’s Day Ideas

I put together a list of some cute/simple ideas to celebrate LOVE with your loved ones.

    Can you share your pita chip recipe? Do you just toast them in the oven? I have several pitas about to go bad and would love to transform them!

    • rosemarie

      Just click on the link and it goes to the recipe!

      • Jess

        But there isn’t a link for the pita chips included in the meal prep…

        • Tracy

          I’ve never blogged it before. It’s just 350F cut pita up and toss in olive oil and some salt. bake for 15-20 or until crisp.

    Reframing my “to do list” to my “intentions” is becoming a game changer. I thank you so much for this!
    This Madonna song is one that is on the last “mixed cd” anyone ever made for me. I think I have it somewhere still and it has some other real gems as well. Might be worth digging out.
    Have an awesome week!

  • Jess

    Awesome, thanks!!
