A happy Saturday

Hi friends! A happy Saturday to you all! 
Have you been up to anything fun lately? I learned how to crochet last weekend and i'm working on making a cowl scarf. I'm so excited for the finished project! I love how it's going so far! I purchased a pattern for a "mug sweater" using two granny squares, to keep  that coffee cup warm and my hands cool, ~that is already my next project I'm planning! :) 

Yesterday my grandma dropped us off a loaf of banana nut bread and some beer bread.....they both are so good! {Thank you grandma!}

Through the winter I've had a few little gifts sitting in an old suitcase 
by the door for any guests that would come to visit us :)
 Hot chocolate with marshmallows, 
Old fashion hard candies, 
Cappuccino mix,
 and peppermint "crunch"
And for some reason (which i'm surprised!) I didn't get a picture of the suitcase.

~Orange you going to be my Valentine??
I have this little tag sitting in our kitchen by the fruit bowl // with oranges in the bowl! LOL 
Thought it was cute :)  

I've been thinking and wanting to do a giveaway......
so I think i'm going to do one very soon! It will be my first one!! EEEE! 

Hope you have a lovely Saturday and weekend!!
