Blendorama: The Thank YOU Card


I could sit here and write a recap of this past weekends BLEND RETREAT, but it might turn into a novel. And Monday’s are meant for novels. So instead I break it into pieces. Make just 2 pieces. Maybe three. Who knows. But today I want to say THANK YOU! Thank YOU Katie, Lindsay, Janeetha, and all of their family and friends who chipped into help prepare this amazing … [Read more...]

Sunday Scenes: the S’s


The past few Sunday posts have been all about the “snapshots.” I actually stole this idea from Mama Pea and today I am stealing another idea from Lindsay. I’m pretty sure Katie did a post on S’s as well, so let’s just say I’m a theme stealer. But hey, when you have such creative “blends,” you can’t help but want to be like them, am I right? So here are my Sunday Scenes, in … [Read more...]

Feed Me Friday: Food and Friends


Ahh welcome to another Feed me Friday Post. You see, I had full intentions of doing a “Benefits of Holiday Spices” post, but my brain hurts, I’m a bit under the weather, and I just want to blab today. Perfectly acceptable, yes?

Go with the Flow Friday


Well friends, it’s Friday. I really wasn't on planning on posting much this week. You see, we were supposed to be in the Bahamas for the UWC triathlon.

So instead of running around here...... I’m going to … [Read more...]

Fruits of Our Labor (and Recipe)


I think we need to extend the name of this Holiday. Instead of just Labor Day, it needs to be FRUITS of OUR LABOR Day. Let’s face it. Most of us will still be laboring on Labor day. If you’re a mom, you’ll be taking care of your kiddos. If your self employed (like us), you usually still work holidays. If you’re an athlete, you probably are still training (laboring). If … [Read more...]

I like to think I have accepted a lot of … [Read more...]
