Five things Friday


     1. Most days I wear dresses or skirts with leggings or tights.  I want to try getting more use out of my pants.  I haven't worn this blue button up shirt in years.  I'm excited I found a new way to wear it!

2. Last Sunday I made this recipe: Deep Dish Pizza
It was delicious!  


3.  We are supposed to get 6 inches of snow tomorrow afternoon. 
 I hoping for some more of this:  


4.  Want to know how to make this scarf that I wore in this post?
One of the easiest projects I've ever done!  Here is is: 

Buy a piece of jersey/knit fabric.You need a fabric that is nice and stretchy.  I bought two yards.  
Lay your fabric out on your floor and fold it in half so that shorter ends match up.
The outside of your fabric should be facing in.

Pin it in place. (This is important since knit fabric is very stretchy.)
Sew the ends together.
Flip it inside out (or outside in technically?)

That is it!  
Wrap it around your neck twice if you want it to look like this: 


5. I'm doing a giveaway on Amanda's sweet blog: For the Love of a Cupcake
Go visit her blog on Friday and enter the giveaway! 

Happy Weekend!


Pin It!
