Fun Finds on Friday

I really, really love to eat.

Ask me how my vacation went, and I’ll tell you all about the food we ate each day.

The only reason I work out is so I can eat even more.

So this week I’m giving you the edible edition of Fun Finds – recipes that I’ve been thinking of trying (and totally pinning). Bon apetit!

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!

I’ll pick fish over meat any day of the week. Salmon burgers are my go-to during the summer months. Plus, my husband – who hates anything “from the sea” – can happily munch his beefy version alongside mine.

The weather here has been hot, and what better way to cool down than with a lime sherbet margarita? Delish.

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.

Homemade caramel sauce. No explanation needed. Yum.

A gloomy winter’s-never-gonna-leave rut. I needed a pick me up. And after a purple scarf in my closet caught my eye,… [Continue Reading]

    Take Me Back
  • You guys. I told you yesterday how crazy this weekend was. But seriously – I am sooo glad that I went through with my plan to surprise my husband with a master bedroom makeover. You see – we always hire out our painting work (mostly because my husband is a perfectionist, and he doesn’t want… [Continue Reading]

    Master Bedroom Makeover With Just $125!
  • This weekend was a whirlwind! My husband headed out of town on business on Thursday, and extended his stay until Sunday evening to stay with his uncle. Meanwhile, the kids had more activities schedule during those four days than you can shake a stick at (what does that phrase even mean?!). It seemed that just… [Continue Reading]

    Deep Sigh of Relief
  • I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!). Tammy’s headed out in a few weeks to a warm destination. So we both have the tropics on our minds. We thought we’d put together a handy little vacation… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About Vacation Style
  • My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend. While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different. I am proud to say she wasn’t glued to her phone… this time, she was glued to a newspaper! What? Yes. Adaline and… [Continue Reading]
