Happy Friday to you! Here are 5 notable things from this past week:

1> Well, you pretty much can’t top my 2nd blogiversary, now can you? I ate quite a lot of cookies in celebration. {Or maybe I would have eaten them anyway.}

Have you entered the $50 gift card giveaway for Shabby Apple? It’s as simple as a few clicks! And if you’re a male figure, you can totally enter and give the card to the female in your life. Or just mail it to me. Either is acceptable. Click here to enter!

happy 2nd bday

2> I absolutely love this Valentine’s idea via Emily at Jones Design Company. Write a little love note to your kids everyday sharing 1 thing you love about them! Emily even provides a free printable to pretty things up!

3> I came across some pretty great links this week and thought I’d share:

Victoria shares 10 beautiful Valentine’s wreaths. Check ’em out to get your creative juices flowing. {oh, and 1 of them looks somewhat familiar!}

You can make homemade bread in 5 minutes.

Why you should consider getting rid of Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and your scale. <—- excellent read

Funds running low? Here are 32+ date night ideas plus links to 350+ more!

4> I’ve had my eye on attending The Maker’s Summit for several months now. Ever since they announced it, really. I even sold some of my items to raise money for it. And Jonathan gave me the “go-ahead.” But I never registered because … well, I just never made up my mind.

So I was pretty bummed to see this notice when I checked the site this past Sunday:


Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa? SOLD OUT? No way!

I e-mailed the organizer and said something to the tune of, “I totally want to come. Please let me know if anyone cancels.”

On Tuesday, I got an email. They had 1 extra spot someone wasn’t going to use. Which took me to this lovely screen:

Awesomesauce! So, I’m headed to Greenville this weekend for The Maker’s Summit. Pretty excited. And scared. Let’s be honest. I will instagram some moments, so follow me {@BrownSugarToast} if you like crazy things like that as much as I do!

5> Last, but certainly not least…a new series!!! Starting this Monday and “airing” each Monday for the next 6 weeks:

    Ooooh, I like the heart banner idea! Maybe I can tweak that and do it for hubby. And it just so happens that the 15th is the 5-year anniversary of when he asked me out for the first time. 😀

    And I’m totally interested in hearing about what you learn at The Maker’s Summit! Any chance you’ve got some spare time before you head back home? 🙂

    that’s a great idea!!! and unfortunately, no, I don’t think I will have spare time. 🙁 I need to fit in a 4 mile run in Gville before heading back to Charlotte, and I’m hoping to get home in time to tell my babies goodnight! 😀
