Awesome Life Friday Link Up #5

Welcome to this week's Awesome Life Friday!  As we say goodbye to January, let's look back at how we've spent this past week.

Here at Reviews, Chews and How-Tos, we've been staying busy:

Jackie posted her second review of EcoAble cloth diapers - this time it's an All-in-One model, and there's a giveaway, too!

Meanwhile, Courtney shares her review of Caboosee Onesies, which have a cute snap up backflap that lets you quickly check the baby's diaper without the need to undress them or risk a nasty surprise by feel.

Jackie also reveals her go-to potluck recipe - this hearty and delicious chili cooks up in a slow cooker, just right for busy days.

Finally, Daniel and his dog Angel share thisTrue Drool Subscription Box review, which made a wonderful holiday appearance under their tree this year.

Don't forget that you've still got a little time to enter these two giveaways, too!  You can find the links in our sidebar to the right.

This Week's Features!

As ever, Lauren, Jackie and Lynda had a rousing discussion, selecting this week's Featured Posts.  Sadly, there were several we really wanted to consider, but we couldn't find a link back anywhere on their page.  We check the post, look for a link party page, and in the side bar, but if we can't find it, sadly, we can't feature it.

The good news is, there were still many more qualifying posts we fell in love with than we could feature!  You'll find them all on  our Awesome Life Friday Pinterest Board!

Here are the three we're Featuring this week:

There are simple and more complex ideas here for DIY gifts for guys that they'll actually enjoy receiving. One of them is sure to inspire!

Sunny citrus is one of the best things about the winter months, and this collection of ways to use it is just perfect!

Chocolate and coffee come together to form the perfect dessert - yum!

Congratulations, and thanks so much for sharing with us!
