Fun Finds on Friday

I really, really love to eat.

Remember all those raspberries in my backyard? I’ll be on the hunt all summer for recipes to put them in. This one looks promising!

How fresh and summery is a bowl of pasta with roasted veggies?! Plus, this one’s made with quinoa noodles, so my gluten free friends will be happy too.

  • Life is catching up with me and I’m feelin it.  Running non-stop lately is taking it’s toll. I’m exhausted.

    Cheers to this Crazy Life
  • My poor husband. He’s truly concerned for his future with me. And my crazy memory loss. For instance, the other day we had a long conversation about a specific subject while on the phone. A half hour later, he arrived home, and I proceeded to dive right into the same conversation. Because I couldn’t remember… [Continue Reading]
