Saturday Surfing {Lots of Links to Things I Love}

Four things I am loving right now...

I ran out to buy one at Michael's after watching this video.  Maybe you can relate to having stacks of barely used journals lining your shelves?  Somehow the colorful format of these books makes it easy to fill up and not feel pressured by a blank page.

If you are looking for something escapist, visually beautiful and of excellent quality to watch after the children are asleep you must try DA.  Season one is available on Netflix to get you up to speed.  Season 2 just began last week.  It is great fun!

The book arrived in the mail this week and I have spent a few blissful minutes imagining myself baking from scratch.  Even though I am half terrified to have joined in on this challenge, I am going to give it my best shot.  You still have time to join in, too!

Another challenge but somehow this seems like something doable for me.  I can't stand that I haven't printed out a tangible photo in years.  This monthly project should help me get some photos into a book.  Maybe a new Smash Journal?

What are you loving right now?  Do share!


  1. Misty, I couldn't watch her. She just seemed to be not going anywhere. Maybe my congestion has made me impatient. Wondering if you wouldn't mind relating what the smash box will be to you?

    Enjoyed your post and can't wait to Sunday's Downton Abbey!

    1. I understand - her point was that she has loads of empty journals on her shelves and she felt like she finally found a journal place and style which she can fill up the entire journal throughout the year. I am labeling mine 2012 and anythings goes. Enough with the one journal for this topic, another journal for that... Hope you have a chance to look at them at a craft store sometime.

  2. Thanks for all the tips this morning on Gluten Free! You are the second person to have recommened Downtown Abbey. I almost want to sign back up for Netflix!

  3. My sister recently bought one of those smash books and she showed it to me. I love the idea. Looks like fun. I hope to start one for 2012. As for Downtown Abbey, I'm thoroughly addicted! :-)

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

Petals :: 52 Photos Project

Where I live the Bradford Pears have bloomed and blown and the Cherry Blossoms are in full blossom.  Even though that means our allergy season is now officially underway, I cannot help opening our windows every morning in hopes of hearing the birds singing to greet the day.  Springtime has conveniently coincided with my personal recovery process from knee surgery.  As I am slowly re-gaining mobility on crutches it seems an added encouragement that the weather is also improving and the trees are welcoming my return with their flowers. What a treat it would be to be able to put down my crutches in time for Easter Sunday and walk again on my own! (I am doubtful but one can hope.) Sharing with 52 Photos Project :: Petals

Saturday Surfing {favorite spots from around the web}

Saturdays are the perfect time for a little aimless web-wandering and here are few of my recent reads I'd like to recommend to you. The Wild Surrender of Motherhood by Carrie Ann Moss @Annapurna Living This new website launched this week and is absolutely lovely. Remember Carrie Ann Moss from the Matrix movies? Well she is now the founder and inspiration behind this blog.  Here is an excerpt of her vision for : FROM CARRIE-ANNE ... “To see womanhood through eyes of grace.”  My desire is to live in a world where nourishment is valued. I believe a nourished family will lead to a nourished world. I believe life is beautiful and that our divine purpose in this world is to nurture the earth by respecting it and being grateful for what it provides us. My wish is to inspire others to create beautiful, honest and satisfying lives. My Other Ex: Women's True Stories of Leaving and Losing Friends   @A Design So Vast Unfortunately, over the past few
