Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real {lots of links}

~PRETTY~
See that lovely tray beneath the Arnold Palmer makings?  Well, that tray was a freebie from Dayspring thanks to my blogging buddy Mary Jo.  A while back she offered a giveaway on her beautiful blog and I won and I never win anything!  Anyhow, I think of her every time I use it and have had many compliments on it as well.  Here's the link if you want to get one or give one to someone you love.  Thanks MJ!




~HAPPY~
The weather cooled a bit last week and the boys took advantage of it to get dirty!  I just love the all-boyness of my guys (and a dear little friend, too).  Boys, shovels, sticks, trees, and dirt just go together and make us all happy.




~FUNNY~
Phone Bling!  I admit to being a bit of a glitter-gal and when I found these I was hooked.  I have one on my camera, car key and I had one on my cell phone until I got a new case. I even cut some out and sent them in some letters I wrote to friends to share the bling!  Check out this site to see all the options available.

Yesterday I posted about how I create my cleaning schedule.  I have life-organizing on the brain these days and this simple four part magnetic tablet has been so helpful I had to share it here.  I got it at Target (of course) and even though it is not on this link, many other Organizher products are.  They are all great ideas and may help you find a new way to keep organized this fall.  I have this one on the side of my fridge.  When I am heading to Target, I only have to rip off that list and leave the rest safely at home.  Very handy indeed.

  1. Misty, I like boys digging holes, too. Dirt is good to explore!

  2. Wow--I like the fridge tablet. Makes perfect sense to just grab one list instead of my way--which is to make a master list that gets crumpled before I'm at my second stop. ;)

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Tuna and Lentil Salad {Menu Plan Monday}

This hardly constitutes a recipe since it is mostly dump and stir but I  must  share it here because I love it so much.  The tangy vinegar mixed with spicy onions and creamy lentils makes my perfect in-a-rush lunch.  I usually just eat it right out of the bowl but it is also nice on a bed of red leaf lettuce.  It is also perfect for meatless Friday meals during the Lenten season just double the amounts. INGREDIENTS One can lentils , rinsed and drained 1 can tuna, packed in olive oil, undrained 1/4 onion, diced I prefer red onion) 1/4 cup red wine vinegar kosher salt PROCESS In a medium mixing bowl, stir all ingredients together.  I usually add more vinegar as it is quickly soaked up by the lentils. Serve over lettuce, on crackers or simply eat out of the bowl! ******* The March 2012 issue of Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine, entitled The Budget Issue, was really inspiring me over the weekend so I plan to make several new recipes from

Peaceful Snow Day

Yesterday we had the most lovely snow day. The woods were simply begging us to come and explore. We had new trails to find and secret passageways and hideouts. Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God. George Washington Carver There were tracks to follow. And tracks to make. Occasionally, the wind blew mini blizzards of snow around us. And then the sun returned and the sky gleamed blue. The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. Ralph Waldo Emerson There were hints of Spring. And reminders of winter. We made wonderful memories. And then, there were the snowy camellias. I got a little swept away by their color and beauty. I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. e.e. cummings
