Well, we are back from Australia and have had precisely two days to get back into the swing of things.  Laundry is done, thank you gifts for the police department and a fabulous neighbor who watched our house for five weeks are ready to be delivered this AM and my

Peeking In……

Sorry for falling off the face of the earth.  The week leading up to our summer holiday was very hectic and I didn’t have the time to post.  We are having an extended vacation in Australia and it has been jam packed so far. We are fortunate to have a

I haven’t done one of these posts in a while….probably because I have found Instagram to be an easier way to snap photos that are usually less than blog-worthy. But, I thought I would share some recent keepers. First, I pretty much don’t buy bottled salad dressing anymore and have

Phew, what a crazy two weeks.  The Home Tour yesterday was a huge success but it was a CRAZY day.  We were blessed with incredible weather and the homes looked fabulous!  Chris was out of town a lot the last week so I didn’t cook much while he was away.  Last

I mentioned I am trying to cook more at home during the week.  It may be a no-brainer for many of you but I hate the weeknight rush to get food on the table….which often leads to taking the easy (and unhealthy) route of take out.  We’ve been much better

What’s Cooking????

What’s Cooking????

We have had a habit of eating entirely too much take out during the week.  It isn’t good for our health or our waistlines so in the last couple of months I’ve tried to make a concerted effort to cook more at home.  For me, planning ahead is the key
