Weekend Bits – Links I Love

Here in the Heartland we actually had a couple of days last week when the temps crawled over the 50 degree mark.  It was enough to get me thinking spring.  The first item on my ‘to do’ list is to schedule a pedicure so I won’t frighten anyone when I break out the flip flops for the first time.  There are plenty of gorgeous spring hues to choose from in this list of 50 from Lucky Magazine.

Sneakers will be a big trend in spring fashion but these looks go way beyond the gym rat vibe.  Here are 10 ways to wear them that are as stylish as sneakers are comfortable.

For me, the end of February signals winter’s homestretch.  Before swimsuit season is a full-blown threat, I’ll likely give a few of my favorite comfort foods a final turn.  This phyllo chicken pot pie recipe is definitely on the list.

Who can resist getting the look of a designer handbag for a fraction of the cost?  Thanks to The Budget Babe blog, I’ve added this Kate Spade look-alike to the list for my next Target run.

Fat Tuesday is just over a week away.  My husband LOVES Cajun and Creole cuisine so I’m going to pick one or two recipes to try from this list of 30 classic dishes.

The Academy Awards show is next Sunday.  If you missed my post for hosting an Oscar watch party, you need to catch up here.
