Hey hey and happy Friday!
With most of the country digging out of drifts of snow, it feels good to just hang out at home and cozy up with nothing to do. Oh wait! That’s nothing new. It’s the same thing we’ve been doing since 2020, am I right?
But! Better times are straight ahead, I can feel it. Things are looking up. Cases are going down. My mom and dad got their first vaccine doses last night. The sun is shining. Bring on the light!
This weekend we will be watching the Super Bowl and with a much smaller viewing party aka just us. I’m not going to lie…I’m looking forward to skipping the big party this year. The noise and chatter will be at a far lower decibel so maybe I’ll actually be able to hear the half time show and a few Super Bowl commercials too. And because there will be fewer eaters, a smaller-scale cheese board will likely be happening, and less pressure on the chef for making a ton of food. Although, I probably still will. :)
So let’s get those pom poms out and let the cheers begin.
But first, let’s dig into this week’s Friday Faves.
Did you know you can vote for and help rank the best Super Bowl ads in real time?
If you’re zooming this Super Bowl, try one of these Zoom backgrounds.
This is such a cute V-day project to do with the kids.
Intuitive eating: What it is and how to make it work for you.
Have you ever thought of making a reverse grocery list?
I really need to make this Thai chicken soup again. It’s been too long.
My friend is the crazy genius and original creator of the viral baked feta pasta Tik Tok recipe. There’s lots of copycats, but only one OG!
Why do regular pizza crust when you can do this instead? Yum.
These sticky cauliflower wings will have you dipping all game long.
This pasta mash up looks so comfortingly delicious.
This is one of those special Valentine’s Day desserts you’ll forever have on repeat.

I LOVE a good cous cous recipe like this one that makes a whole meal.
This vegetarian vermicelli soup looks absolutely perfect to me.

The perfect blank canvas for weekend pancakes.
I first spied these cookies on Instagram and OMG, they look so chunky and delicious I will HAVE to try them.
Wow, what a journey –> “When I thought I had a year to live, I asked for soup.”
We can do better:
- How to support your local farmers this year.
- The struggle is real, and shouldn’t be shamed. How to get mental health services if you can’t afford it.
- So helpful: Google launches a tool to help identify black-owned businesses.
- 28 before and after photos that show climate change is real.
This wire sculpture would make a very cool and romantic V-day gift.
These postcards are way too appropriate.
This vintage MCM piece has me wishing I lived in the PNW.
For every work from home reader out there, here’s some much needed home office inspo.
I gave up my old mascara for this mascara and I can say it might be the best one I’ve ever used. No clumping, no smearing on my upper lids/brow, and it holds my curl all day long. Highly rec. Plus, it’s buy one get one 50% off for I don’t know how long…
If you’re a skiier, and have to mask up, this mask tube is so genius.
10 things to stop apologizing for. Hell yes.
And that’s it for this week! Let’s go Chiefs!
