Inspiration Monday

Welcome back to the party, friends! I'm so happy you stopped by to party with us today. I've had a bit of a lazier weekend, but I'm certainly not complaining. It was one of those laundry, cleaning, laying around kind of weekends...but sometimes we all need those. My dad's coming over tomorrow to help me with a really cool new project...I can't wait to share it with you!

Need some inspiration? You’ve come to the right place! Check out all the fabulous and creative ideas below. Of course, if you are a blogger, link your latest creations and have your work seen on seven different blogs!

This week’s features were selected by Leigh Anne from Your Homebased Mom.

These Blueberry Scones with Tea Glaze make a delicious breakfast...
paired perfectly with Bigelow's American Breakfast Tea.

Blueberry Scones with Tea Glaze | Simple and delicious.
Blueberries and lemons go together like....well, tea and scones {ahem}
I was able to try this Bigelow American Breakfast Black Tea and Lemon when I was on my Bigelow trip to Fairfield, Connecticut back in the fall {read all about that fun here}. It was so yummy and the perfect way to kick off the day. I was delighted to find it here in my own Walmart. Now, I enjoy it on a regular basis. Since I love the lemon version of this tea, I just knew something blueberry-filled needed to go with this. Breakfast eureka, y'all! This scone and tea combination was fantastic. Check out the details below.

Free Printable Valentine's Banner

This Free Printable Valentine's Banner is the perfect way to add a little love just about anywhere! It's perfection for all of the glitter-phobes out there...you get the twinkly stuff without all the mess. Sparkle on, friends.

Free Printable Valentine's Banner | Glitter embedded into the graphic makes it sparkly without the mess! | Instant Download | Print as many as you like for your desired banner length.

I constantly see that people have this super interesting fear, if you will. A fear of...{dum-dum-dummmmm}...glitter. And you know what? I feel that pain. Glitter is like lice...once it's in your home, you pretty much have to rip out your carpet to get every trace of it out {I've yet to find a "glitter comb"}. I'm a girl who has been living with glitter-fied carpet for years now. I only use glitter in my office...but it like, moves on its own from room to room. So, I thought I'd help all of the non-sparkly homes of the world out. This free printable Valentine's banner has the glitter embedded in it. It just prints like a graphic.

stay on track and still have something delicious and satisfying.

Avocado and Tuna Salad Wrap | Easy meal with less fat than traditional tuna salad...the avocado is a delicious addition!
I've been on my healthy eating plan for 18 months now...it's slow going, but that also means I will keep the weight off. I had a bit of a backslide during the holidays, but I'm back on track now. I made this Avocado and Tuna Salad Wrap for lunch the other day and loved it...and it worked perfectly for my plan. Check out the recipe below.

Inspiration Monday

Welcome back to Inspiration Monday, friends! We've had a GORGEOUS weekend in central Texas...a little break from all the cold, wet weather has been nice. I even did a little flea marketing and took advantage of the great temps...so inspiring! And of course, my other big inspiring part of the weekend is THIS PAR-TAY!
