Welcome to another issue of Friday Finds.  Today is 1/24!

Friday Finds JanuaryFYI – I’ve been sitting at my desk for hours on end, you would think that I could get something done, but Nooooooooooooo.  You see, I live in the South.  Born in the South.  Raised in the South.  Always lived in the South.  So SNOW is a big deal to me and we had predictions of snow for last night. Shoot, they even closed the schools today.  Want to see all the magical stuff that came drifting down my way?

What I stayed up for
LOL- Our huge Southern Snow Storm!

OMGosh – I am so lame!

Alrighty then, on to some FINDS.

I want to share a few blogs – about Bento Lunches.

Yes, you heard me right – Bento Lunches.

I’ve been fascinated by them for several years, and have even tried my hand at them a few times.  They can be a bit time consuming, but the results are like edible works of art.

First on today’s menu is

What’s for Lunch at Our House.

Bento Lunch

I had the great pleasure of meeting Shannon a couple of years ago (along with the other bloggers mentioned in this post) when I attended the first Niche Mommy Conference.  Every picture I have of Shannon is like this:
ShannonI don’t even know if she realized that I was there….her eyes were for my dog, only. I swanny, every time I turned around, he was looking at her adoringly, waiting for her to slip him some delectable morsel (which she did every time he blinked), or for a belly rub. The last day of the conference, I kept his leash tied to my waist for fear that he would follow her home – or that she would try to pack him in her suitcase!

Shannon holds weekly What’s for Lunch Wednesday link up.
