Creative and Cheap Valentine Inspiration: Being Your Valentine is a Piece of Cake Valentine Freebie Printable

This post contains affiliate links, that just means I make a small commission if you decide to buy after clicking through on my link. It doesn't charge you anything, but allows me to help my family!

Getting ready for Valentine's Day last minute this year? Here's a super cute Valentine idea for anyone in your life and it's a "piece of cake" to prepare - grab this printable and a squishy from Dollar Tree (or even a cupcake from the grocery store) and leave this on your Valentine's table.


I love this cute valentine piece of cake squishy for so many reasons - I mean, it's adorable, so there's that - but it's also a great "stress reliever" and it's a clever way to remind someone you are thinking of them. It's truly a multi-functional valentine in many ways.


The best part of this little Valentine though, was The Dollar Store had so many different options! I loved that they had a million different cake squishies, that way you could give each teacher in your kiddos life one of these or even leave them on the secretaries desks at your work with THIS free printable.

If being with your Valentine is a piece of cake - then you absolutely need to give these out this year!

Celebrate The Minions Movie with Minion-ade Banana Lemonade Recipe + a Free Printable

If you're a kid at heart, like me, or a mom to a wonderful little fun-loving minion, then you are probably just as excited about the release of Minions on disc as I am! After Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2, I fell in love with the cute little yellow helpers (or trouble makers, in some cases) and I couldn't wait to watch the goofy little guys and see what they were up to on their own adventures. I won't spoil any of the movie details, but I will say I love Kevin and Minions gets 5 stars and two thumbs up from me!

http://cbi.as/18amk

Since I love to celebrate everything, you probably aren't surprised to find out that I had a couple of "minions" join me to watch the Minions movie from the comfort of my own home! I actually made a fun little date night out of the whole thing and it turned out fabulously with mason jars decorated like minons filled with a delicious banana minionade (lemonade) recipe and beautiful flowers setting next to the entertainment center... it's the little things in life, am I right?

http://cbi.as/18amk

http://cbi.as/18amk



Do you want to make some minion friends as well? These easy to decorate cups are made with this free printable and a small piece of tape! I measured my minion goggles and eyes to fit around a mason jar but you can easily shorten the goggle straps for each cup in your house! These are such an awesome way to treat your friends and family to something delicious while watching Minions!
http://cbi.as/18amk

So go ahead and pull out your scissors and a pitcher for the minionade, we're about to get messy and it's going to be fun! Are you ready to get ba-na-nas about lemonade like a minion would? Then let's get started on a recipe any minion would love!

http://cbi.as/18amk

You will need:

3-4 Lemons
1 cup sugar
3-4 cups hot water
1/2 tsp banana extract


http://cbi.as/18amk

You'll want to begin by printing off this adorable free printable so you can make your own minions! Cut each set of goggles out and attach with tape to mason jars. While working on this project begin heating 4 cups of water in a tea kettle or large pot.

While your water is on the stove top, you'll want to begin juicing the lemons. Simply squeeze 3-4 lemons, chopped in half, into the pitcher with a strainer over the top.

http://cbi.as/18amk

Once the lemons have been completely juiced, remove the strainer from the top of the pitcher and add in sugar, little bits at a time and stirring each time you add more in!

http://cbi.as/18amk

By this time, your water is likely warm so begin slowly pouring the water and stirring it in about 1/2 cup to a cup at a time. Stir mixture until completely combined.

http://cbi.as/18amk

Add 1/2 tsp of banana extract and stir for just a little longer!

Add handfuls of ice and lemon slices in the mixture and garnish cups with a lemon, if you'd like!

Serve in the minion themed mason jars, with some dried banana chips, and ENJOY!
http://cbi.as/18amk

The best part about our kid-at-heart themed night is the fact that we were able to score everything we needed on one of my regular weekly trips to Target. From the Market Pantry banana chips to my Target Exclusive Minions Metal Pak Deluxe set (that also scored me a free $5 gift card + bonus footage that is only available on the Target copy), they had it all!

http://cbi.as/18amk

Since I've shared this adorable free printable to give your minions the goggles they deserve and a delicious recipe for banana minionade, I feel I should also tell you that you don't want to miss your chance to get your hands on even more adorable minion fun! From the perfect minion-esque attire to little books and toys fit for any minion-loving kid, Target offers a little bit of everything Minions and you're bound to fall in love with it all! So head on over and collect everything you'll need for your Minions movie night!


Get excited about the Minions movie release and make this delicious Banana Minionade Lemonade!

We've all had one of those delicious, creamy, perfectly blended beverages from our favorite coffee shop.

Let your coffee break get a little happier with this happy hour delight, mü coffeehouse is what your coffee cup has been waiting for...

You know the type I'm talking about, the kind that make your mouth water from the smooth and sweet goodness... The type of drink that adds a little pep in your step because of the double shot of espresso mixed in with your favorite sugary treats... The type of drink that leaves you craving another one.

Let your coffee break get a little happier with this happy hour delight, mü coffeehouse is what your coffee cup has been waiting for...

Well, today I'm sharing not just one, but two recipes for those ridiculously good drinks. But here's the twist, these drinks are for adults only with my new favorite addition to my coffee bar area, mü coffeehouse cocktails.

http://cbi.as/1300p

While these drinks are tasty with or without the booze, who says no to a little "cocktail" addition to their coffee around the holidays? Not I!


http://cbi.as/1300p

Are you ready to have one (or two) of these delicious coffee house inspired cocktails? Follow the recipes below and start sipping!

http://cbi.as/1300p



Ingredients:

For the Strawberries & Cream Coffeehouse Cocktail -

2 scoops vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup whole milk
2 shots of espresso, room temperature
3/4 cup mü coffeehouse cocktails Creamy Vanilla Latte
1 cup strawberries
1 1/2 cups ice

http://cbi.as/1300p


For the Cookies & Cream Coffeehouse Cocktail -

2 scoops vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup whole milk
2 shots of espresso, room temperature
3/4 cup mü coffeehouse cocktails Creamy Espresso Macchiato
1 cup chocolate sandwich cookies, whole
1 1/2 cups ice


Both of these recipes are so easy to make, but we'll work on the strawberries & cream cocktail first - you'll start by mixing the strawberries and about 1/4 cup milk in the blender. Next add in the ice.

Blend until smooth and add in remaining ingredients, adding in the mü coffeehouse cocktails Creamy Vanilla Latte last. Place in freezer for a few minutes if you plan on making both cocktails!

Next up, the cookies & cream cocktail - you'll actually start this recipe with the ice and cookies. Blend until they make a nice chocolate icy texture and then add in remaining ingredients, adding in mü coffeehouse cocktails Creamy Espresso Macchiato last.

Top both delicious cocktails with whipped cream & sprinkles and your drinks are ready to serve!

http://cbi.as/1300p

That's why I love mü coffeehouse cocktails so much, it's so easy to transform your kitchen into a coffeehouse bar with just a flick of the wrist, a blender, and some ice! With a variety of delicious flavors and a $2 coupon hanging from some lucky bottles in Publix & other retailers, there are so many drinks waiting to be served and sipped this winter!

Let your coffee break get a little happier with this happy hour delight, mü coffeehouse is what your coffee cup has been waiting for...


Plus, you may have noticed my awesome new wall decor in the background; I think it really adds to the vibe and with this super cute coffee-inspired FREE printable, you can transform your house into a coffeehouse too.

http://cbi.as/1300p

So now that I've shared TWO delicious recipes and one adorable free printable, I'd love to hear what kind of concoctions and cocktails you want to add mü coffeehouse cocktails into? Tell me how you want your coffee break to meet your happy hour in the comments below!
