some bright spots in my life

Well, despite my two-year-old succumbing to the sickness (the whole works, fever, aches & pains, cough, snotty nose, etc), I still managed to make a totally yummy dinner.
Bacon & Caramelized Onion Pizza
This is basically The Pioneer Woman's Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza (can you tell I'm obsessed with her food right now?). I didn't have any prosciutto so I cooked some bacon in a skillet and then crumbled it on top before popping it into the oven. OH. MY. Absolutely to die for!!! I used her pizza crust recipe too (cut in half for this largish pizza). Next time I will pre-bake the crust for a few minutes before adding the toppings. I like a crisp crust. Oh and don't skimp on the onions. If your onion is on the smallish side, use two. Better to have too much than not enough. I will have a hard time making any other type of pizza ever again!

So, the other thing that made my Valentine's day happy was getting this package in the mail.
Last week I happened to chance upon these popular Metro Living Circles ON SALE! major score! I also added a few of my favorite Sugar Pop fabrics. And then from an Etsy shop, I HAD to get some of that cute camper fabric!
All in all, a great mail day!

Yay for yummy pizza goodness and gorgeous fabric.

I like prosciutto, but think your bacon works just as well for your pizza.
