i love wednesdays

If you don't already know, I have the privilege to not working on Wednesday.  Thanks Mr. H!!!  I take the time to catch up on housework, hang out with my friend Beth (if her nursing schedule allows), run errands, or whatever I want!

Today, I got to spend the afternoon with Beth and we did some crafting and baking, two of my favorite things.

I know I've mentioned my date jar a lot, but I have three weddings coming up this summer and thought it'd make a great gift for our newlywed friends.  I love the polka dot paper!

I created several dates to get them started, but I left a lot of sticks blank for them to create their own dates.  I hope they love it as much as we do!

After our crafting we wanted a sweet treat so we found this yummy dessert on Pinterest: Fudgy Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars.  Check out Barefoot and Baking for the yummy recipe.  They are delicious!!!  Mr. H was pretty excited to partake in this yummy dessert too.  

I wish everyday was filled with crafting and baking with friends.  Wouldn't that be perfect?!?!
