How was your Valentine’s Day weekend? I had a nice one. Hubby made Sautéed Black Drum Fillets with Capers and Lobster Tails. It was a very delicious surprise. As some of you may know, the new season of House of Cards was released on Netflix on Friday. Operation BINGEWATCH was in full effect! We are already halfway through the season.
Some great new stainless steel cookware arrived at the house too. However I’m not sure if that was for Hubby, for me, or for us. Oh well…it’s still nice and I couldn’t wait to get rid of some of our
ancient old vintage cookware to make room for the new shiny stuff.
Traffic Jam Weekend is going live the evening of this Thursday, February 20, 2014. I’ll be adding a Google + and Instagram link-up to it as well. And one more surprise that I’ll announce on Thursday. So be sure to check back then and link up your old posts for new traffic and comment luv.
Now, on to today’s linky party…

There were so many awesome posts to read and we enjoyed them all! It was so difficult to choose just one favorite each!
Angel chose MY VALENTINE’S BABY ♥ from Dolly Dowsie. “That little Valentine’s Baby with all the kisses is just too cute. He has this huge smile that just melts your heart. Too cute!”
Jessica chose Teaching “The Average Student” from our very own, Bonnie from LadyBlogger. “This one I can relate to because my mom always told us we were “average.” When she told me that, it drove me nuts so I always tried to prove her wrong. Now, I am working on my PhD :). Awesome post!!”
Darlene chose HOW WORKING AT AN ART STUDIO CHANGED MY LIFE from Peace and Chaos. “It`s always wonderful to read an inspirational story, especially when it is well written and true.”
Kimberly chose My Bullying Story from The Coconut Head’s Cancer Survival Guide. “Bullying is so prevalent these days and in many forms. Gone are the days of simple teasing. Holly shares her own personal story with bullying and offers some insightful tips on how to put a stop to it.”
Stacey chose Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Brownies!?!?! from The (Mis)Adventures of a “Born Again” Farm Girl. ” As most people know, I am a complete brownie junkie! LOL! Brownies of any kind. These look absolutely delectable!”
Millie & Kristina chose Chore Chart: Perseverance Pays Off (Reblogged) from Reviews, Chews, and How-Tos. “I love this simple and creative chore chart! I also love the explanation on how to get children to follow one. I always gave up within days, this is motivation to try again!”
April chose Dear Dads of Daughters: 3 sports things you shouldn’t skip doing from Home on Deranged. “Having girls often seems to be more of a joy for women than men for them to do things together. It’s awesome for this dad to share how he gets involved in his daughters lives.”
Cathy chose Day 4: Red Velvet Cream Pie For Two from Living Better Together. “Love everything about these scrumptious little pies! Rebecca’s husband says she makes the best graham cracker crust! I can’t wait to make these cute little pies for hubby and I!”
Natasha chose I Am not A Perfect Mommy Moments from Pretty Scraps. “Perfect post! I am very much the same way – I’m not perfect at all and I read all of these blog posts about these moms that just seem like super moms and I fully realize that I am not perfect. It just seems that other moms are perfect. However, we all do our best and that’s all we can do as moms. Wishing you the utmost best!”
The posts with the most clicks is Munch on this Monday — How to make Paella from Gurvy Green.
