Every Saturday Best Mommy Life brings you seven things that inspired, made us laugh, smile, giggle, or possibly even belly laugh this past week. We bring you seven new things weekly and hope they will help get your weekend off to a wonderful start. Enjoy!
Small Acts Of Kindness Mean The Most
It’s the season of love ladies! Over the next two Saturday’s, I’ll be listing out all of my favorite things that I’ve found to help make your Valentine’s Day holiday a little more fun and exciting. Speaking of love, lets start out with a great story, shall we?
Once upon a time, in a town called Vista, a little girl by the name of Katelynn Hardee overheard a conversation that got had her concerned with the costs of after-school care. One thing led to another, and she also realized that there were several of her friends that had balances on their lunch accounts due to not being able to afford to pay for their school lunches.
So, she had an idea and she went with it. She sold cookies and hot cocoa in her neighborhood and raised enough money to cover the unpaid balances on her schoolmates’ lunch tabs who owed over $80.00. What a perfect example of how small acts of kindness can change the world of those around us! Her dreams are big ladies… she’s not stopping until EVERY lunch tab in the entire school district is paid off. Love this! YOU GO GIRL!! #KikisKindnessProject

Would You Look At Those.. Donuts?!
As Valentine’s Day is approaching, we are on the hunt for special treats that you can only get this time of year… and we found one! Krispy Kreme’s new glazed strawberry shortcake donut looks amazing, and it’s just in time for Valentine’s Day.
They are for sale starting TODAY, February 1st and we might just have to take the kids (and the hubs!) for a treat very soon!

Cinnamon Rolls Made From The Heart
Can’t make it to Krispy Kreme for the donut? Well, we understand, BUT we wanted to share a super cute trick for having your own version at home. Do your kids LOVE cinnamon rolls as much as mine do? Well, on special occasions we serve up a batch of Annie’s organic cinnamon rolls with our morning staples like eggs and fruit.
Only for Valentine’s Day, you can make them into an adorable heart-shaped cinnamon rolls by rolling out the cinnamon roll and re-shaping it into a heart. You want to make sure that you buy a brand that you can roll out into strips. Just leave the ends rolled but in the middle of the strip, create a “V” that looks more like a heart. If the dough strands are too long, feel free to cut them in half… but be sure to watch them because they may cook faster.
What an awesome way to show the ones you love just how much you love them with this celebratory holiday treat!

A Little Bubbly To Top Off The.. Margarita?!
Did someone say Margarita? You read that right… Strawberries and Champagne Margarita is THE icing on the proverbial Valentine’s Day cake for this holiday. I mean, how could it get more simple? Strawberries, alcohol, adult relaxation time!
Whoever said that adding a bit of Champagne to an already-alcoholic drink would be a BAD idea? I’m not sure that anyone has, so while it’s the season of love and all things sweet, let’s give Cupid a run for his money and cross the line of “normal” for a incredible holiday beverage. Behold, just in time for February 14th, the luxurious recipe that can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes: hassle free and delightful.
Directions / Preparation
In a blender, puree strawberries. Combine strawberries with champagne, lime juice, tequila, and triple sec. Stir or shake until well mixed.
Use the pink crystalized sugar/salt to rim the edge of each glass. Pour margarita concoction over ice-filled glasses. Enjoy!

Best Mommy Life Weekly Book
Last but not at all least… it’s time for the weekly book recommendation! The Rosie Project: A Novel by Graeme Simsion. This book is an international bestselling romantic comedy that is great for everyone. It erupts with warmness, emotional complexity, and lots of comedy.
The peculiarly charming, genetics professor, Don, pursues true love and finds it when he least expects it and where he wasn’t looking. It’s got more twists than a pack of Twizzlers, and we thought it would be a great read for this Valentine’s Day holiday!
