    February Favorites

    So, with me trying to get back into the blogging thing, I was thinking it would be fun to do a monthly favorites post! Just random things I’ve been loving the past month. Recipes, movies, songs, makeup… you get the idea. This isn’t an original idea; I know tons of bloggers do things like this, and I thought it might be a fun thing to do. I love hearing what other people are loving, and most of the time it[...]

    Pizza Bites Recipe

    I was feeling rather sassy today and decided to whip up some pizza bites for lunch. Saturday lunch is usually a time I feel really uninspired. A lot of times we’ll just munch around on little things, or else we’ll do a sandwich or something else equally boring. Well, not today my friends! Today we feasted on Pizza Bites. They were easy. REALLY easy. The most time consuming part of this recipe was cubing up the pepperoni, and that took[...]

    Spicy Honey Chicken Recipe

    Back-to-back recipes on the blog? Are you guys lucky or what? The answer is yes, yes you are. Because this is another Knock It Out Of The Ballpark recipe. Trust me. It is yet another Pinterest find. I promise I have some recipes on deck to share that I actually acquired from something/someone other than that time suck of a website we all know and love. But it’s just so easy┬áto find new recipes on Pinterest. You all know what[...]

    Chocolate Chip Pecan Bars Recipe

    Yum. These things are good! I was put in charge of dessert for our Father’s Day get together at my parents’ house today, so naturally I turned to my Pinterest boards to find something new and exciting to bring. Normally I like to make things at least one time before serving to people, but I had a feeling this┬áchocolate chip pecan bars recipe would be a winner. They’re like pecan chocolate chip cookies, but in bar form. How can you[...]

    Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

    So today we went to the zoo! Greg and I didn’t see our little guy for about 30 hours since it was our anniversary weekend (no, I wasn’t counting or anything ), so we were both wanting to do something fun with him today. And what’s more fun with a kid than going to the zoo! So we loaded up the car with all our essentials, and we were off! Here are my two favorite guys in the entire world,[...]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

TMNT

Is it strange that one of the things I really looked forward to doing once I had kids was make Valentine boxes for school? I really have no idea why. I think it’s just one of those things that epitomizes mom-hood to me. So you can imagine how excited I was when finally – finally! – it was time. I asked Ben what he wanted his box designed as, and no surprise, he wanted a TMNT box. So a TMNT[...]

Candle Upcycling

candle

So, apparently one of the things I’ve gotten really good at over the past couple of years is hanging on to candles that are past their prime. You know, candles like these: And that’s not all of them. I had 10 candles like this, easily. Probably closer to 15. Think of the space wasted with holding on to candles like this! One of our cabinets was overflowing with them. I finally decided enough was enough. I remembered seeing an idea[...]

Hello.

Posted by sharilyn On December - 22 - 2014 0 Comment

So… Hi there. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve been around. I’ve actually been keeping pretty busy these past 2 1/2 years. Crazy, right? Funny how having a 5-year-old will do that. Lately I’ve been finding myself thinking about this blog. I miss having this place to come tell our stories, share our laughs, talk to you guys… and then I realized, I don’t have to miss it. I can come back whenever I want to. And I want[...]
