February Bucket List

It's that time again...time for my monthly bucket list. I encourage you all to create one as well. I like have one for the year but it's great to have some short term things you want to accomplish as well. ;) Don't forget to head over to Erika's blog and read her February bucket list too! A Little Bit of Everything always has a great list! ;)

1. Throw a Valentine play date party...I try to have a play date once a month at the house. I love a theme so Feb. is always a favorite play date of mine. ;) Invites are out and planning has begun, I am so happy this is on my bucket list. (You can read about last year's party HERE.)

2. Do more "intentional" crafts. I have always done crafts with the kids. They play with play doh and paint ALL THE TIME. I am not a mom who doesn't play with those "messy" items. (I guess it's the elem. teacher in me) I have stumbling upon so many fun crafts lately that have some awesome lessons and teaching points with them. I want to try to complete FOUR in the month of Feb. We shall see...

3. Prepare for Sis's b-day party. ;) I am super pumped about usual. I have a themed that she picked out. (For all you rolling your eyes, I have her options over and over for about a month and she consistently choose this theme...) Stay tuned for details! ;)

4. Make another round of freezer meals. Mark and I did this back in the end of Dec./early Jan. and LOVED it. It came in so handy and saved us SO MUCH $$$! I want to find a few more meals so we can change out the ones we didn't LOVE and have a little variety to the mix as well. Stay tuned for those meals as well...

5. Make 3 quiet time boxes with/for Wyatt. I have been doing a little research on what to put in these and I think I am ready to create a few. Wyatt doesn't nap and hasn't for over a year now but most of the time he does have a "quiet time." I think create a few quiet boxes would be awesome. He is a great independent player and loves all things gross motor so I can't wait to get started.

6. Lastly...CLOSET CLEAN OUT!!!! Above is the button, you can grab it and join me as I get my closet, the kids closet, and even my house ready for SPRING! ;) Grab the button (please link back to my blog) and post on Wednesday, Feb. 5th your items you wish to sell and being preparing for Spring. I will post more details soon!


  1. Ok so this is a great freezer meal, but you can't put it in bags. My mom used to put these in a disposable baking tray and freeze it that way. Anyways, it's stuffed pasta shells. You get a box of the big shell pasta and cook those like the package says. In a mixing bowl, mix one package shredded mozzarella and one container of ricotta cheese and 1 egg. Drain the shells but don't rinse- stuff the shells with the cheese stuff and lay them in the pan seam side down. Pour spaghetti sauce over the shells- I like the meat sauces. Bake at 400 for 25 minutes, then remove from oven. Sprinkle shredded parmesan cheese on top and put them back in the oven for about 5 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly :)


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
