Thursday’s Treasures

I’m back! In case you missed it, I had the privilege of chaperoning on the 5th grade Washington DC trip. Amazing, exhausting, educational, full of good times and great memories. I went with my son five years ago and I just couldn’t believe how some things had changed. Just goes to show, even if you’ve been someplace before you can always find something new to see.  

Last week had so many fantastic links shared. I think I drooled a little over some of them. I love all the creativity you can find in the blogging world. Thank you for sharing with us each week.

Here are the features from Last Week

Overloaded Rice Krispie Bars from Sugar Cookies to Peterbilts 
Crab and Bacon Mac & Cheese from Lemons for Lulu 
Nutella Cupcakes from Fantastical Sharing of Recipes
40 Ingenious Uses for Salt Around the Home from Natural Mother’s Network 
Lemon Berry Cream Scones from Around the Table With Tami 
Samoa Cookie Bars from Mommy’s Sweet Confessions 
Banana Bundt Cake from Hot Eats and Cool Reads 
Stir Fry Chicken & Kai Lan from Somewhere a Clock is Ticking
