Don't forget to check out my lovely co-hosts Amber & Sarah's favorites from this week too :) If you don't already follow them you should!!! They are awesome.

Another great week of The Pinspiration Project starts on Tuesday, so if you have a crafty project, a recipe, a beauty tip, and cleaning tip, or any kind of DIY project that you've seen on Pinterest, come link up with us!

 So what happened this week?

We got back from our family vacation on Monday. We went to Idaho for my dad's 50th birthday party. It was a lot of fun, but the weather sure sucked! This is what it looked like driving over the wintery pass:


And here's what it looked like when we got to Grandma & Grandpa's house:
 More snow. And it never got above freezing :(
And this is what it looked when we came home, as we got back into Seattle.
  {partly cloudly & about 55 degrees. Warm after that freezing weekend!}

It was about a 6 hour drive and this kids were not too stoked on it. Lily had a little stomach flu or something when we went back home, so she slept most of the way with a "puke bowl" on her lap. Poor thing.

I got super excited when I saw someone posted this new trailer for The Host!
Can't wait to see it! If you haven't read the book, you need to!

Things got Pinteresting as I drooled over some yummy looking holiday treats.

I mixed things up and did my own thing on the whole "Things I Love..." posts. Mine is called "Things I {don't} Love Thursdays" and I'd love it if you'd link up with me this week! I had a lot of fun with it just by myself and I sure would love to see what you all aren't digging at the moment. Let's see if we can bond over our shared hatred of something!

I linked up this fun purple color to The Nail Files:

My kids made their Christmas wish lists. Oh boy!

 And finally, I'm hosting the I Love My Online Friends GFC Hop!
This is an awesome blog hop that I've linked up to for some time now. Blog hops are a great way to network your blog and meet some really awesome ladies in the process. I've found some of my favorite blogs and bloggy friends through hops & linkies. So link up & have fun! 

Hope you guys had a fabulous weekend. 

Don't forget that a new week of The Pinspiration Project starts on Tuesday!
