You guys, I have been loving all of the comments you write on the blog. They totally make my day! And here’s the thing, your comments help other readers too. When you make a recipe, or if you make a slight alteration to the recipe, people can read it and see how it turned out for you. So thank you for taking the time to come back and comment on each recipe post. It’s so helpful!

Before we continue, READ THIS article about a 24 year old guy looking for love… he bought a billboard, and put his face on it.

No, not the Utah millionaire. This is a different guy. I love this so much! Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Feel Good Story

The feel good story for this week is about these two sisters who donated their kidney, and started a chain reaction. Good for them!

Life update

We are finally getting settled! But after mopping our floor (the entire house is hardwood) with our Shark steamer (I love it but hate it, ps. mopping took forever) I decided it was time to purchase an old fashioned mop. My mother-in-law says she’s owned this mop for 10 years and she loves it. I was sold. It’s a bit bigger and covers more surface area, doesn’t plug in, it’s built well, and it’s old fashioned! Sometimes old school is just better, you know what I mean?

I get excited over the littlest things.


What Caught my Eye

I should preface this by saying my sons birthdays are coming up so I’ve been browsing the internet with my two kids in mind, I’ll share a few of the ideas below. But I also have some great finds for men and women so keep reading!

  • Thinking about buying this for my 4 year olds birthday, do you think he’ll like it?!
  • Shopping for kids clothes is so much fun, I found this.  But these kid shoes are my favorite by far.
  • Do you own a Yeti? I’ve heard so many great things about them, but the price is definitely holding me back…
  • For you men, this shirt doesn’t seem normal. Tell me, is this something people actually wear??
  • However, I think this shirt looks really good! It’s Burberry… so the price tag is killer; but it comes in short and long sleeves 🙌🏼
  • Women, I’ve heard really good things about these sandals! So many color options. My Old Navy $1 flip flops are nearing the end of their days.
