Wednesday What-Have-You's

I promised last week that I'd check in every once in awhile with just a "fun" post.  One that doesn't revolve around a recipe.  One where you get to know a little bit more about me - what I love, hate, enjoy, etc.

So here we go again!


I don't "do" flowers.  Unless they are delivered to my door in pretty cellophane or come up annually without any maintenance.  These tulips coming up in our yard are ones I like.  I don't have to do anything but turn the corner around our yard and admire them.

Perfect.


Last night it was just the Little Miss and I at home.  That usually means I get a tad more creative in the kitchen, as it is less bodies in our kitchen.

So we ate dip for dinner.  Call me mother-of-the-year.  But hey, I had been wanting to try out this new recipe and it was the perfect chance to try it out without two extra bodies to feed.  We loved it.  {Recipe to come!}


Katie, over at Yes, I Want Cake wrote a beautiful post today about her 2 year old daughter.  I relate a lot to her, as our daughter's are the same age and we both LOVE food.  

She does a great job of spending quality time with her little one and I think this above quote is one that would come out of her mouth and maybe is one we should all read a few times {and then maybe a few more times}.


Can someone give me this bucket of fun please?  I promise I'd sit on my back deck, not utter a word and leave you alone.

It's almost summer {well, kinda} and I'm looking forward to some lazy summer days.  My girlfriends and I held a garage sale last week - so I plan on treating myself with some of that extra cash and getting a pedicure.  If you know me, you know I rarely, if ever, spend money on myself.....like ever.  So even, making an appointment to go get my feet pretty is a bit out of my comfort zone, but honestly I think I deserve it.



A year ago today, I was featuring this Spicy Charred Broccoli on my blog.  See my foot in the bottom right corner?  Geesh.  If you need a change up in your vegetable routine, you've got to pour this sauce on your vegetables.  It's so good.

In fact, I might even challenge you to a "drink off" of this sauce.  

Forget that.  Never mind.


Yep.

This is so true.

I have one too many girlfriends that this saying applies too.

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Stay tuned for:

  4. Save yourself the hassle of moving, plus Fri
    day and enjoy it. " The easy answer to that difficult and (often) emotionally charged issue is that you need to determine how much stuff you will really need to take along to your new home. If you decide to pack them yourself, you can find an array of supplies to help you pack.
