Hello everyone! It is my pleasure to round up this week at Thursdays for you. It has been a great week filled with both Valentines Day love as well as great recipes and crafts as always. I spent my Valentines Day with my boyfriend cooking up a storm and it was so much fun. I hadn't ever cooked a Valentines Day meal and let me say that I now think that making a dinner together is not only more budget friendly but also a blast. We spent $30 on groceries and cooked steaks with asparagus and corn salsa something that could have easily cost double that in the restaurant.
Well now it is time to go into a chocolate detox, (thanks for the bag of hersheys kisses dad) since I have spent all week throughly gorging myself.
Anyway I hope that everyone has had a marvelous love filled week and am looking forward to a beautiful February weekend!

Megan shared with us an adorable Valentines Day manicure which can be easily adapted for other holidays, think about it green with a clover for St. Patrick's Day or red, white, and blue with a fire work for the 4th of July.
In my house peanut butter needs to be hidden in the back of the cupboard because it tends to disappear quickly by the spoonful. We haven't had nutella in the house for as long as I can remember because it disappears faster than peanut butter. Thank you Mary Clare for giving me a reason to combine them so deliciously!
Shoko shares with us a recipe for candied rose petals a great and unique Valentines Day treat!
I am so excited about this new weekly post! As Stephania explained it is going to be full of things that we would love to have, wear, eat, or bring to our next Thursday Night Dinner. This week we featured some hilarious Dirty Bandits calenders!
A wonderful look into the Glue Gun Mafia in Louisville making some wonderfully unique Valentines!
I love Adrianna's blog "A Cozy Kitchen" it is one of my favorites and one that I visit almost everyday. So I am so happy that Thursdays is doing a feature on her so that all of you can love her blog as much as I do!

I found this blog pretty recently and let me say that once I read the name I was hooked. Bacon is my favorite food after all. Anyway edamame humus has become was one my new favorite obsessions and give my issues with gluten the idea of making my own rice crackers sounds so fun! I cant wait to try this out.
The always crafty Martha Stewart has come up with a good way to stay green by making your own tote bag, it can be a great way to use leftover fabric from other projects!
These look like they are very fun to make and also a perfect personalized touch for any dinner party. Wouldn't it be fun to make your own Chinese dinner with homemade fortune cookies!
You should see the before because this final product is so cool! I love how Design Sponge does an amazing job of redesigning furniture to give it a whole new look.
Who doesn't love mac & cheese? Actually who doesn't? I am gluten-free and lactose intolerant and I still love the stuff even though I cant actually eat anything that's in it. I love the blog Eat Yourself Skinny because they take classics and make them healthier and lighter for those of us watching our figures. Cant wait to try this one out with some gluten free pasta!
