Friday Favorites

Happy Friday everyone! School has started already for the boys in our household and summer is winding down. I'm in between trying to savor some down time and gearing up for our busiest time of year (does it really get more busy?!). I wanted to share a few of my favorite back-to-school inspirations with all of you. Take a look…


favorite foodie find . using friends garden tomatoes to make my version of this salad


favorite meal planning tactic . crock pot meals 1x per week. Pinterest helps me find new dishes.


favorite book series of the month . For Library Lovers & Bibliophiles, a librarian's mystery 



favorite cool weather wear . Cashmere Cardigan! Time to go to Zara....

Memorial Day blog hop with OWH

Most of us can appreciate a three day weekend and relish the time spent with loved ones at barbeques, graduations, camping and other start of summer events.

Whatever you doing, please take a moment to reflect on what Memorial Day really means and to whom we all need to be grateful for these days of freedom we enjoy.

Thank you to all the service men and women around the world for your commitment and sacrifices! There are so many who depend on you and likely don't even realize how much.  Thank you to all the families of the fallen. Your sacrifice and theirs has not gone unnoticed. 

I am also grateful for the tireless team behind Operation Write Home. From personal experience, I know how separated families of the armed forces appreciate a written letter. 

In continuing support of the organization, here's my contribution to this weekend's blog hop. Be inspired and feel free to donate toward shipping expenses for our cards to reach our soldiers.

Happy National Scrapbook Day!

Happy National Scrapbook Day! I was up on London time this morning to see events online roll out. (I have been awake a long time.) Even if I can't be among the scrappiest at an event, I am a happy to participate virtually where I can.

Today I made a quick card for my friend, Alina and her fiance. We are heading to their engagement party.



Inspired by the OWH challenge, I used Neenah metallic paper, a sentiment stamp from Papertrey Ink's Bigger Blooms set, Black Glint rmbossing powder from Wow! and A Cuttlebug embossing folder (regretfully I don't lnow the name).

Happy NSD!

Do something Pinteresting everyday


I love Pinterest. LOVE. 
I can hoard pins with the best of them. 

While I actually attempt many of the ideas I pin, I would not get through all my pins if I did something pinteresting everyday. 

Still...one can try. I kicked off this new section of the blog (recent pins to the right) by prepping my nails for tonight's hockey game. 

1 hour later (because I am a nail painting novice)....
