Rise & Shine February 13, 2020 – A local antique shop, marshmallow Valentines, Vera Bradley sale, Starbucks Happy Hour, weighted blanket, Audible sale, more

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Yesterday was a busy day of errands and catching up on stuff around the house. We ran to Costco yesterday afternoon – picking up stuff for school lunches and meal planning. You can find this month’s Costco coupons here. . . honestly there aren’t any deals that I’m super excited for. I needed stamps, Power Greens, maple syrup, eggs, pesto, chicken broth, birdseed and gum. The gum was on sale and I picked up some Pop Corners which were on sale for $6.99 a box – these are so yummy and they come out to 25 cents a bag. Generally for pre-packaged snacks/lunch items I shoot for under 30 cents each – so this is great!

Yesterday I put up some spring decorations. . . maybe it’s too early – but I’m so ready for spring this year! I got this cute paper mache bunny and nest at Nuestra Casita Antiques. It’s a new(ish) shop in town and it’s just up the hill from our house. If you haven’t been there yet – you must check it out! The owner is the sweetest and she has super affordable furniture, decor and vintage things – it’s a wonderful shop! I got a couch there last week (see that on Instagram). She’s always posting her newest items on Facebook here. If you go in – tell her Heather from Queen Bee sent you (no, I don’t get a kickback or referral, I just love supporting small business).

If you’re looking for something fun to do tomorrow with your kids, these simple Marshmallow Valentines make a fun (and tasty!) treat. You could wrap them up for friends & neighbors – or just eat them together. What’s your favorite way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with kids? If you’re looking for affordable last minute Valentines don’t forget the Dollar store or Michaels!
