March Wrap Up

March 2015 Love From The Oven

Where did March go?  I mean really.  It was January like 15 minutes ago.   Every month I mean to do a wrap up post, and then one month turns into three.  Whoops, best intentions! So here’s what we’ve been up to in March.  Let’s start with food! I have been on a major citrus kick.  […]

Fitbit Flex vs Samsung Gear Fit

Gear Fit Versus Fitbit

A few weeks ago I had shared a photo or two on Instagram about my Samsung Gear Fit and my Fitbit Flex, and found that a lot of people were really curious about which I liked best, how they compared and what my thoughts were on the two.  Today I’m sharing my thoughts on both, […]

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday.  We did, and I’m so sad to see the break come to an end.   We didn’t do all the things, see all the people or go all the places that I wanted to, but we hung out together, and we kind of did a little bit of […]

Hello November! Hopefully everyone had a very happy Halloween.  We had so few trick or treaters last night.  I think maybe the doorbell rang six times.  Such a bummer, I love seeing the kids and costumes.   I guess it’s a good thing I gathered up a bunch of recipes to use up leftover Halloween candy, […]

Back To School – That’s My Kid

Back To School #thatsmykid

It’s that time again, back to school time!  It seems like our summer went by far too quickly, and now we must return to homework, backpacks, early mornings and tight schedules.  My daughters are eight years apart in school, so I have one in preschool and one in sixth grade.  In our district, sixth grade […]

Colorful Kitchen Accessories – Fun Friday Finds

Colorful Kitchen Accessories

I get a lot of questions about where I find my colorful and fun kitchen accessories.   I love lots of pops of color in my kitchen.   I figure I spend so much time in there that it should be a bright and happy place.    Right down to your spatula smiling at you.   I noticed that […]

Happy Friday!   I have another Fun Finds Friday post for you today! I wanted to pick up a little welcome gift for some new neighbors who just moved onto our street, so I hit up my nearby HomeGoods.  I haven’t been there in a while and I was blown away by all the great baking […]
