Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

by GettingFreedom on July 30, 2010

I’ve been busy with Vacation Bible School this week–as well as random things for Project Major Home Addition.  This week I’ve not been able to read as many blogs as I would have liked, but here are a few of my favorites:

How to Make a Child’s Chef Hat: I’m putting this on my Christmas-To-Do List.  If it’s as easy as some of the commentors say–I’m thinking of making them for my children, as well as my nieces and nephews.

Ham and Potato Pockets from Once a Month Mom. Need I say more?

A great post on breastfeeding from JessieLeigh.

I meant to make this bread this week, but didn’t get a chance. What a great way to use up some of that extra zucchini from the garden.  Cream Cheese Zucchini Bread.

Linking up to Saturday Stumbles.


Better Breakfast-110 Breakfast Recipes E-Book Sale

by GettingFreedom on July 28, 2010

I’ve long had the goal of fixing an actual breakfast for my family before they leave the house.  Some weeks I do really well, some..well, I’m an epic fail.

My friend Kate from Stolen Moments Cooking has just released her e-book of 110 Breakfast Recipes!  We’ve loved every one Kate’s recipes, so I’m sure this e-book will also become a quick favorite.

Kate is currently offering her Better Breakfast-110 Breakfast Recipes E-Book for $3.97 until Thursday!

Better Breakfast Ebook

I don’t know about you, but my family would love to eat Cinnamon Apple Stuffed French Toast, Country Breakfast Casserole, and Banana Breakfast Bread Pudding to start their morning out right before work and school.  Kate even includes a whole section for Under 10 To the Table recipes for those busy mornings.

Be sure to get your copy!

A Sparkling Sink

July 27, 2010

My house is absolute chaos.  Project Major Home Addition is still in full swing, which makes it quite hard to have any form of normalcy.  Windows and doors are being changed out–some are being done away with so there is plywood in their place (for now).  Walls are coming down, and my decor consists of insulation walls. […]

Chocolate Cherry Pound Cake

July 26, 2010

On a recent trip to my favorite grocery store, Aldi, I found cherries for .98/lb!  My daughter absolutely loves cherries, but we rarely buy them because of their price.  This was my opportunity to stock up, so I bought 4 pounds worth.  Apparently it was a week for good fruit sales, because I ended up […]

Extra!Extra! Read All About It!

July 24, 2010

MommySnacks wrote a fantastic rebuttal (8 Reasons YOU Should Use Coupons) to the recent Yahoo Personal Finance article, 8 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Use Coupons”.  I would have to agree with her entire post! I’ve always wanted to try Shrimp and Fish Tacos.  Jacqueline makes me want to even more with her recipe. Brilliant way to […]

Free Online Money Manager

July 22, 2010

Generally speaking I am a paper and pen type of gal.  I like to physically write down my thoughts, my goals, my lists, my finances.  Especially my finances and financial goals. But, I’ve heard so much about Mint.com, and I caved into peer pressure.  I finally joined the FREE online money manager, and I’m impressed! […]

Tortilla Sandwiches; Snail Style

July 21, 2010

During the summer months, nothing beats a cold sandwich, loaded with veggies alongside some delicious fruit.  To change things up a bit, I like to make sandwiches on a tortilla instead of bread.  Not only does it lighten the sandwich up a bit–but it changes the whole flavor.  Or atleast I think so. To make […]

Must-Haves For Baby

July 19, 2010

I’ve found that many things baby have changed over the last 5 years (since I’ve had our third child).  When we were sorta preparing for Blake’s arrival, I was absolutely overwhelmed with all the baby gadgets, toys and the latest trends. Since Blake was our 4th child, we were taking our sweet time actually purchasing things […]

Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

July 17, 2010

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared some of my favorite posts.  Be sure to check these out: Oh how I love these numbered jars.  I’m trying to figure out where I would put my own set. I stumbled upon a fellow Missouri blogger while doing a blog search.  IT doesn’t happen very often that I find […]

He Is In Control

July 15, 2010

It’s hard to believe that as I cuddle with my 6 week old baby, tomorrow (Friday, July 16th) would have been the day he was set to be born. If I was in control. If I was in control, Blake would have been born at 39 weeks gestation, not 33 weeks. If I was in […]
