Friday, I’m In Love #001

While I wouldn’t go as far as saying I am a fan of The Cure (not that I don’t like them, I just don’t know that much of their music), I do really enjoy “Friday, I’m in Love”! So, as a tribute, I’m going to be starting a weekly Friday post with all the things I love! This could be anything from Disney restaurants, to etsy findings, to cruise excursions that sound great, to educational toys, to favorite nail polish colors. Pretty much anything goes…Continue Reading “Friday, I’m In Love #001”

Confessions and Commitments

So I have some confessions to make, and then some new commitments to make too! I haven’t done a great job of posting, obviously, and I’ve done an even worse job with my fitness and nutrition over the past week. Honestly it was just one excuse after the other, which came to a head yesterday when little man had to stay home from school because he had a sinus infection, and I (not my husband, but ME) suggested we go to this pizza buffet for…Continue Reading “Confessions and Commitments”

Ok, let’s try this again. I really feel like I haven’t been true to myself when trying to write my blog, and I feel like that’s why I haven’t stuck with it. I’ve been trying to be something I’m not. Some cute little crafty stay-at-home mom that cooks all these elaborate dishes and makes her own laundry detergent and does tons of DIY projects. But let’s face it, that’s not me. I wish I was more like these moms. I have a lot of respect…Continue Reading “The truth of the matter…”

Lemon Feta Green Beans

  Nothing says summer to me like lemon and green beans! Green beans are one of my favorite veggies, and I like just about anything that has lemon in it! A friend shared a Roasted Garlic Asparagus with Feta recipe recently, and it inspired me. I’m not a huge fan of asparagus though, so I switched it out for the green beans, since I already had that on hand. I call this “Lemon Feta Green Beans”!   Ingredients: 1 lb. green beans 1/8 C extra…Continue Reading “Lemon Feta Green Beans”

Easy DIY Father’s Day Frame

Are you looking for a last minute idea for Father’s Day? Well I have just the thing for you! Last year, I had ordered my husband the football jersey that he had been bugging me to get him FOR MONTHS, and it was supposed to arrive the Thursday before Father’s Day. I had it shipped to work, so that Mr. Nosey wouldn’t see what it was. If he’d seen the package from NFL.com, he would’ve known right away what it was. I was working from…Continue Reading “Easy DIY Father’s Day Frame”

Healthy Chicken Pasta Salad Recipe

  Hi glitterbugs! So sorry I haven’t been around! My sister gave birth to a beautiful baby boy this weekend, so things were a little busy! I’m back home now, and starting to get settled back in to daily life, as are they. In honor of my sister, I’m going to share one of her favorite recipes today! This post was actually written by her a few years ago, for a different blog. So, here is her healthy chicken pasta salad recipe! I hope you…Continue Reading “Healthy Chicken Pasta Salad Recipe”

Top 5 Grilled Veggies Recipes

  While Memorial Day is about much, much more than family barbeques and get togethers (and I could never put into words how grateful I am for the sacrifices of those who have given their lives for our country, and their families), it is unofficially considered the kickoff to grilling, summer, beach trips and all things outdoorsy.   Grilling is my favorite way to prepare food. Something about the smoky flavor, combined with the fact that it can be an easy, healthy option, just makes…Continue Reading “Top 5 Grilled Veggies Recipes”

You are exactly where you are meant to be…

  Lately I have been very anxious about a lot of things. In June of last year, I learned that my company had been sold, and that our new parent company planned to absorb our business and eliminate our office. We all had the opportunity to accept a position at one of their other locations, but the closest one was still several hours away. With a young child, and a close-knit extended family, that isn’t an option for us. We were told that most of…Continue Reading “You are exactly where you are meant to be…”
