Happy Sunday! With just a few days left until Valentine’s Day I am definitely feeling the love this weekend…..and apparently also seriously craving some cupcakes! 🙂 In any case, I’m sure I will be making some sort of treat for my daughters’ classes this week and I was happy for all the inspiration. What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?
This week was our biggest Thrifty Thursday link party ever, with more than 400 awesome recipes, DIY projects, household tips, and money-saving ideas linked up. So many posts made it even harder to choose favorites, but here are the posts I loved this week:

They say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Bacon! And Little Smokies ! My husband would be SO all over these Bacon Brown Sugar Smokies by Spend With Pennies!
But now, onto the cupcakes! My girls would go crazy for these these super cute and yummy Cherry Limeade Cupcakes by This Silly Girl’s Life–they love anything with a cherry on top!
And speaking of cherries, these Cherry Coke Float Cupcakes by Belle of the Kitchen would be adorable for a class Valentine’s Day party too!
Nutella Stuffed Vanilla Cupcakes? Um yes please! You had me at Nutella, Titi Crafty.
If cupcakes aren’t your thing, there were plenty of other sweet Valentine’s Day ideas linked up this week. How cool is this Hidden Hearts Pound Cake by Frugal Coupon Living?
I also LOVED these Chocolate Covered Strawberry Roses by The Pin Junkie! What a cool idea!
This Valentine’s Candy Bark by Life With the Crust Cut Off also looks super yummy and easy to make too!
If you’re looking for some non-sugar-loaded V-day ideas, I loved these easy-to-make 5 Minute Valentine Pins by A Few Miner Adjustments. They are the perfect alternative to candy!
The Blissful Bee has a step by step DIY Rose Tutorial that would make a sweet (and thrifty) Valentine’s Day gift as well.
Of course if you are more excited for the Olympics than Valentine’s Day, be sure to check out this Quick Guide to the 2014 Winter Olympics by Chaney at May Richer Fuller Be. It is a great resource for what’s new and when to watch.
If you’ve ever wanted to give your kitchen a facelift for not a lot of money, check out this post from Carrie This Home. She has a great tutorial on How to Paint Cabinets!
Finally, my Husband will be so happy to see a post about How to Load the Dishwasher by Angela Says. He truly believes there is a science to this and normally won’t even let me touch the dishwasher for fear of messing up his method. Learning how to do it “right” might just be the best Valentine’s Day gift of all! 🙂
