Thanks, Linsy! I hope you are having nice spring weather. We had a teaser day yesterday and today it's back to winter :(.

Thanks for stopping by, Amanda! I found the banner at Target (Threshold brand) about a month ago so hopefully you can still find it. I just added the bows for some color and am super excited about how it turned out. Now I just need to add a few more accents. I'll be posting our first edition of the lil bookworms this week so please stop by. Also, you can follow my blog on Facebook at

Please do!!!
Hi Amanda - Thanks for stopping by! "Wine & Whine" has been going on for a few years now and its so great because most people (all ages but ladies only!) come out for the night. It's really been fun to get to know everyone... plus it's an easy way to get out of the house for the night. You should totally start one!!!

Pretzels are so much fun to make and my little girl had a blast making different shapes out of the dough. I forgot how rewarding it is to make them myself. You should totally do it again soon!
Great idea! I just added my link to the link party - thanks!
Thanks! It was a pretty easy craft to do with my little girl and now she has a ball running around the house shouting "Go USA"!
I hear you! I put off doing this for a long time and finally decided to just do it.. although, I haven't made a ton of progress since making the list. I am just happy if I can cross a few things off each week. Good luck and hope all goes well.

My pleasure - we loved it! I have a feeling it will show up on some of our future menus as well :-).

Great! I am going to post a menu every month to swing on by next month :-)
Toggle Commented Feb 2, 2014 on february menu at Plaid + Dots - We just went to the orchard and the basket size we picked up for the mums is the "peck" size. Hope this helps!

Thanks you, Monica, for your kind words. Motherhood is a wonderful gift and it is so fun to celebrate all of the milestones with my sweet little girl. I wish you the best :).

Jeremy, it turned out pretty well but some things (sadly) didn't survive because of the hot summer. Overall, it's coming together nicely! What kind of roses did you plant?

Thanks so much... it was a really fun party and the birthday girl seemed to enjoy it :-). I think she loved the balloons and frosting best of all though!

Did you try the recipe? I'd love to hear how you like it and if you made any changes. Let me know how it goes and I hope you love it :-). Thanks for stopping by and I hope you visit again soon.
Doesn't it look great... I cannot wait to go apple picking and then make this recipe!

Yes, this is my first garden venture and I've really enjoyed watching everything grow. My daughter especially loves going out there to check on the plants. I thought marigolds were annuals? We're in the northeast so I am not sure if they would over-winter. Do you have any tips on how to keep them alive? I think they did wonders for our garden both from a pollination standpoint and a pest control standpoint.

Shona, I'll post a pic sometime this weekend. Sadly, we lost a bit of the garden while we were away on vacation. It was just too hot here and without much water the cucumber and zucchini died. I still have peppers, tomatoes, rosemary and basil growing strong which is good. Everything is starting to ripen and tastes really yummy! I especially am looking forward to some pesto with the basil as the crop is very healthy right now. If you have any basil recipes to share, I'd love to see them.. I am always looking for new recipes. Thanks!

Great question which I don't have the exact answer to... I just eyed the baskets at our local orchard and picked ones that I thought would fit my mums. Sorry for not having more details! When I buy them this year, I will reply back with the exact size.

Thanks! Come back again for more cool finds. Have a nice weekend!

Thanks! You should see it now (actually I'll post a pic later).. it looks like a jungle but in a good way. I've already harvested a few zucchini and the peppers and cucumbers are starting to bear fruit. It's so much fun to do!
