Snickers Pretzel Mix #Chocolate4theWin #shop

Football season is just about underway!  Whether it is a club, college, high school or professional teams are practicing and getting ready for another exciting season.  My family loves to watch football. Of course football also means snacks, so to go along with our first game of the season I created this portable SNICKERS Pretzel Snack with cute little football bags.

These Bourbon Maple Sweet Potatoes are sure to be a hit at your next dinner! Creamy potatoes with a crunchy pecan topping and just the right amount of sweetness!

I had these delicious Bourbon-Map

    adding nailhead trim to a wood table

    weston-crank-bistro-table
    When furnishing our garage turned family room, I knew I wanted a round table with some chairs in there.  This way the room could double as extra dining space as well, or as desk space.  I had my eye on the Weston Crank Bistro table from Arhaus furniture for a while.

    Painting Metal Chairs with Chalk Paint

    Chalk Painted Metal Chairs
    I am not sure where I got them, but they have been painted many colors…here, you see them blue, with little red peaking through, with just a touch of rust too..beauties I tell you, beauties in the rough!
    This idea for a poncho shirt has been swimming around in my brain for a while. I have a shirt from Charlotte Russe that is similar to these, but is not as long as I would like it to be. I looked at the basic construction of that shirt to come up with my plan for making these.  They are easy and fast to make, and oh-so versatile. I could see them with a cardigan over or a long sleeve under in the fall and winter. Enjoy!

    Slow Cooker: Beef and Broccoli Recipe

    This is hands down the best thing I have ever made in our married lives. I’m pretty sure my husband loved it more than anything else I have made. He is so sweet he will never say anything. But honestly try this out, it is delicious and super easy to make!!

    Today I’m sharing a fantastic flower box with you. On Saturday my niece Laura was married. Her wonderful reception was at a vineyard here in Connecticut.
    It was held outside under a tent, that was exquisitely decorated! The weather was perfect for the occasion. It felt like an early fall evening. Everything was beautiful, especially the bride!

    Lemon Brownies 7
    I love getting a bag of lemons given to me, our wee tree is getting there but only have 3 lemons from it so far! The next decision is what to make with them. A few months ago Pinterest was full of Lemon Brownie recipes, I was intrigued – I am a little slow on the uptake but I finally made them today and they are delicious! Lovely lemony smell filling the house and a lovely fresh alternative to our decadent chocolate brownie you will find elsewhere on my blog.
    Years ago I found this awesome wood caddy at an antique store. It was stained a dark wood & I refinished it in burgundy to go in my guest bathroom to hold magazines. 
    Summer Makeup Favorites | My Life Well Loved

     form humidity and soaring temperatures are coming to fruition, it’s the perfect time to 
    showcase my Favorite Summer Makeup. These products have been my saving grace this summer for some color and to cover any unwanted blemishes.
    Hello my lovely friends, today lets climb one more step on sewing ladder and make a Tote bag with faux leather base. Are you as excited as I am? Then, lets do it!!! This post looks too lengthy because of explanation, but trust me its super simple to sew it.
    You go one morning to check the garden for any ripe produce. There’s a zucchini there that is still a bit puny, but should be ready by the next day. You forget to check in the morning, but remember and look after dinner. It has gone from the size of a hot-dog to the size of your arm in less than 2 days! Yikes! What are you going to do with all that zucchini?!
     
     
    Plum Tart
    I had peaches on my shopping list, because it is peach season. However, the ones I found did not look fresh or ripe, and had no smell to them. I am not sure what that is all about, but like a store-bought tomatoes there was no flavor. So what to do? I went through the market sniffing fruit. The plums I could smell and looked inviting so I brought home enough make a plum tart.
    The Best Homemade Café Frappé Recipe – Low-Sugar, Rich & Creamy! | Roxy's Kitchen With five minutes and five ingredients you can make your own! #summer #drinks #icedcoffee #lowsugar
    I’ve said this before, I’m not a big fan of coffee – with one exception though, frappes! They were very popular during my high school years back home in Romania (15 years ago!), especially during the summer time. This is when I pretty much fell in love with this delicious iced coffee drink.

    Miranda’s favorite post came from Mom Fever with the post “How to Give Your Tea Table an English Look!”
    Saying, “I would love to own a Tea Room in the future, and I am in love with all things English Tea! Thank you for this post. Great inspiration!”
    momfever

    Jessica’s favorite post came from Giveaways 4 Mom with the post “5 Tips for Getting Rid of Excess Baby Weight!”
    Saying, “It’s been three years and I am still trying to lose the baby weight! LOL! Seriously though, I am back on a regimen after medical clearance from my doc so these tips are good starter points. I especially liked #2. Believe it or not, no matter how busy you are, you can incorporate a workout somehow. Have you danced with your vacuum? Awesome workout, if I do say so myself!”
    5 Tips

    Natasha’s favorite post came from Jayhawk Mommy with the post “Mommy Needs A Time Out!”
    Saying, “Oh wow! I can completely sympathize with Denise on this post. It’s amazing what a 3-year old will put you through, and not even show a care in the world. I’m glad that Denise was able to get a drink to take the edge off for the night – it really does wonders! Great post!!”
    jayhawkmommy

    My favorite post came from Jayhawk Mommy with the post “Mommy Needs A Time Out!”
    This is amazing and I can so relate to Denise with this one! Even though mine are now teenagers, there are still days that I need and dream of a break, between homeschooling, gardening, mowing, laundry, dishes, etc. While I don’t mind being homebound, there is a tiny part of me that misses going to work, because it took me away from the day to day responsibilities. But even going to work was never a real break, because all of the house duties were there as well as work! Great post!

    Thrifty Thursday…Glass Mushrooms for the Garden

    from Artistic Endeavors Inc 101

    A trip to the thrift store with my daughter yielded supplies for a quick garden project.

    Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza

    from Upstate Ramblings

    Slice of Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza
    Pizza makes an good family dinner, because it is not only quick to make it is cost effective too.  But always serving cheese pizza is boring, so I like to change it up with some different toppings.  A few weeks ago I made Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza, and the family loved it!

    Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos Recipe

    from A Mom’s Take

    Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos
    While I grew up eating what I now refer to as the American version of a beef taco, I found as an adult that I much prefer the milder flavor and taste of a traditional shredded beef taco.

    DIY Citrus Avocado Face Mask

    from Robyn’s View

    Citrus Avocado Face Mask
    Avocados are rich in moisturizing oils and healthy fats that you skin will adore. When you combine avocados with the skin brightening properties of citrus, you have a face mask that can’t be beat!

    How-to: sew a soft ball

    from Green Apple Colttagesoft toy ball

    Another baby boy was born on the very day I posted a picture of a home made soft ball  I had sewn for my nephew. A perfect opportunity to sew another one, don’t you think? This time, I added several loops.


    Lemon Blueberry Squash Bread

     

    from Cooking with K

    Lemon Blueberry Squash Bread

    Have you every heard of yellow squash in a quick bread recipe?  I was first introduced to it last summer  by my daughter.  I love to bake with zucchini in bread, but never had made any with summer yellow squash.

    The secret to raw edge appliqué is this tool, the Applique Pressing Sheet.  For many years, I would arrange my web backed fabric pieces on their background and hold my breath and apply the iron.  Now I press my pattern pieces to this sheet and if I don’t like the way they look, I can lift them up and put them somewhere else.  This sheet is also perfect if you are following a raw edge appliqué pattern, like the one I used to make this Forget-Me-Not block.

    “Summer Fit” campaign.  I live in an urban environment, so finding a patch of green is especially satisfying for me.  Sure I belong to a great health club, but in the summer time I prefer to get my exercise
    outside in the sun as much as possible.

    Blogging has always been a hobby for me.  Well, “always” may not be the best term to describe my love affair with blogging.  When you think about it, blogging is a relatively new thing.  And I’ve only been at it for 8 years.  And it’s been pretty sporadic.  So scratch the first sentence of this blog post.  It’s a lie.

    I’m always interested in trying out different sensory play activities with the boys, even something very simple can grab their attention and provide an opportunity to explore something new. To find out more about why sensory play is important you can read my previous post and also get some ideas for lots more materials to use.

    “The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
    the passion that she knows.”

    You all know how I love to make my own household goodies, this time I ventured into making my own deodorant. I looked online for months reading different posts, reading thoughts, reviews, whatever I could get my eyes on!
    Bite-Size Peach Turnovers
    Sometimes, you just want a small bite of dessert.  When that happens, a small bite of peach turnover will solve the problem.  Sprinkle powdered sugar on top and you have yourself a winner.  Just think small when you’re baking.
    I’m so excited to share with you all a little bit of my home today! One of the greatest joys about buying our very first house is being able to scan pinterest for some amazing design ideas!
    FriedGreenTomatoes final with words
    Making them is super easy to do and it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg either. Here is my families favorite way to eat them. Just thought I would share so your family could enjoy them too.
     
     
    “The phrase “Pura Vida” (pu·ra vi·da) means “pure life” in Spanish. Enjoying life slowly, celebrating good fortune and not taking anything for granted embodies the Pura Vida Lifestyle. It’s about being free and living life to it’s fullest with no regrets or taking anything for granted; it’s an attitude.”

    I Hear Angels Singing

    I recently finished another large angel. I gave her an old world patina finish like I have my other angels but I think this one is my favorite so far. I even like her better than my last angel with the large wings.
