When Dad is away

When my husband doesn't make it home for dinner I often make things like pancakes or things he may turn his nose up at for dinner such as pumpkin soup, lentils or anything with squash.

Do you all do the same thing? What's a go-to, whoo hoo meal for you and the kids when Dad is working late?

I would love to attend a party where I would be served this

and this.

By the way I'm going to have to totally try making that cake.

Salad for Crabs

It's hot and I'm crabby.

You know what they say, if you can't say anything nice...soooo I won't say much. But this salad looks yummy, easy and more importantly assemble only no heat!

Love it :: Yellow

Taking a gander at my pinboards I realized that I'm quite taken with yellow these days.

Summer food and a faucet

I can't decide...what looks better pies or popsicles?

Did I mention that all last week we were without a kitchen faucet? Our old one broke (I was secretly glad) but of course there was nothing that would work at any of the local big box hardware stores so we had to order online and it took a little longer than usual because it was the holiday weekend. My husband was slightly irritated with me because I insisted that I couldn't look at any of those ugly faucets that they would hurt my eyes and make me sad, so thankfully we came up with a compromise and found it at a good price. Not having water in the kitchen is torture. It makes me think of people that remodel and go without their kitchen for months and I wonder how they make it through? Lots of takeout I suppose. Thankfully for us we got it switched out (thanks to handy family) and we're back in business with the water. I love having new things in my home even if it's as silly as a faucet.

Make it :: Friendship Bracelets

The summer between 7th and 8th grade all I did was make friendship bracelets. I did it at home, at my swim meets and probably in the car too, I couldn't get enough! I remember my friend's cousin had one that was about an inch and a half wide and I was completely in love with it.I think I spent a good portion of time trying to recreate it. I've been seeing them pop up in blogland and I particularly like them adorned with rhinestones.

Any takers for a bracelet making party? At least now that we're older we can have summer cocktails while we act crafty!

Hello Summer

This Hello Summer print says it all doesn't it?

Swimming and popsicles are my favorites, how about you?
