What week are we in?

29 May

Ok, so hey there.  I’m back.  What a whirlwind of a month and a half.  I’ve been working more and we’ve been getting outside and enjoying the wonderful sunshine and weather.  I’ve also done quite a few Pinterest projects, but just haven’t wanted to sit down and blog.  Forgive me?

I forgot to take pictures of some stuff, but I hope you enjoy the ones I did take!

For Mother’s Day I also made oven-roasted cauliflower, roasted garlic pasta salad, and rosemary and garlic roasted pork loin.  We feasted for Mother’s Day!

It seems I did more projects, but can’t seem to recall all of them right now.  If I remember, you’ll be the first to know! 😉

Pinterest Projects Weeks 11, 12, 13, 14

8 Apr

Ok, so I know I’ve been telling you I’ve been busy.  And you may or may not believe me.  But it’s true.  I’ve been busy.

I finished my graphic design project, I spent a week at my parent’s, we had company here for a couple days and it’s been so nice outside, I’ve been doing some yard work.  So, I haven’t done as many Pinterest projects as I would like.  But here’s the round up from the last 4 weeks.

I had some great help with the cake and frosting!  The company that visited wanted to frost something, so we got out the Pinterest and searched for some inspiration.  I love what we came up with!  It was bright and colorful and the perfect dessert for the beginning of spring.  Thanks Alina and GMF for all your creativity and help!

Pinterest Projects Week 10

12 Mar

I have only one project for you this week.  But I think that’s ok with all the other stuff that got done last week (more details soon).  So, here it is:

And Y’all, sometimes I forget to take pictures after I make something.  When it looks nice.  In a real bowl.  With a spoon.  This was one of those times.

Pinterest Projects Weeks 8 & 9

10 Mar

Whew…it’s been a busy few weeks.  My aunt was here almost a month ago and we quilted away making awesome sewing machine covers.  Eric and I have been busy with a new church and preparing ourselves for Lent.  My mom was here last week and helped me paint our dining room.  I worked in the camp kitchen this weekend.  And I’ve been doing some graphic design work.

Yep, it’s been busy.  But an oh-so-good kind of busy.

So, here are the projects that got done during weeks 8 & 9:

Not much for two weeks, but at least something!  I’ll probably have only one Pin done for Week 10, but that’s ok.  Remember how busy I was?

Pinterest Projects Weeks 6 & 7

18 Feb

It’s been a little crazy the last couple weeks.  My aunt was here, job interviews, snow, cold, etc.  But there’s no excuse for my lack of communication.  Please forgive me.

Anywho, here is the round-up of the last couple of weeks.  And I’m sorry, there isn’t much to share…

Pieced BattingPieced Batting

Well, that was about it for the past two weeks.  Oh yeah, the hubs and I have been keeping up with our 52 Week Money Challenge!  A woo-hoo!  I also read Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns).  I loved Mindy Kaling before I read the book, but even more now.  I love when I can read a book and imagine how the author would be saying it to me.  Anyway, if you’re looking for a light, funny read, check it out!

Pinterest Projects Week 5

6 Feb

So, there are a few projects from the 5th week of the year.  We were in the middle of getting ready to head to Minnesota for my great grandpa’s funeral, so not a lot got done.  And what did get done, was mostly in preparation for our weekend away.  So, here it is:

Dirty MicrowaveI’m a little embarrassed to be posting this picture of my nasty microwave, but it must be done.  Wait until you see the after picture!

Sparkly MicrowaveTa-Da!!  Hot water and vinegar steam

Lemon Ricotta PancakesLemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Topping

Yummy BreadYummy Bread

Now, the bread I’ve been making for the past few months, but this is the first time this year.  It is DELICIOUS!  And EASY!  I forgot to take pictures after I made the loaves, but this looks much prettier than just a shot from the top.  I made three different kinds: plain; cranberry, orange, almond; and jalapeno cheese (not pictured).  The jalapeno cheese was a big hit, so I didn’t actually get to bring any home.  Or try it.  It’s ok, I’ve still got jalapenos and cheese…

I also made Sonoma Chicken Salad for our 7 1/2 hour drive to Olivia, MN.  I also forgot to take a picture.  But let me tell you, it was also damn delicious.

I’ve got some really exciting things coming up for this week and I can’t wait to share with you!  So, until next week, Pin away!
