Today’s flashback Friday is brought to you by Belinda Carlisle. In this video she has that wonderful 60′s look with the black clothing and big beautiful lined eyes. I’m such an 80′s freak.
I don’t usually use a lot of pink in my layouts, so this page is a bit different for me, but I really love it! It all started with the pink handmade card my son made me.
I went to my stash and pulled some pins. I especially love Dear Lizzy’s Lucky Charm paper with the flowers on it. Then I added some letter stickers and enamel dots from Simple Stories and some wonderful words I found on pinterest and Voila. i was done!
My husband loves his black eyed peas! Making a batch of these babies this week. The recipe is from Fine Cooking, Dec 2012/Jan 2013 issue. Instead of using chicken broth, I am using my homemade vegetable stock. It has tons of flavor! I bought loose dry black eyed peas from whole foods. We’re serving it with some organic collard greens and Carolina Rice.
This year I want to be really intentional about our summer. What are some things we would like to do? I find that if I make things intentional they don’t remain on the bookshelf of my mind as a “that would be nice to do” task that never gets done!
I came across The Happy Family Movement Summer Bucket List Challenge and knew immediately I had to do it! There are things we’d like to do as a family and things we’d like to do individually. I’m going to include all of it.

I want to include this activity in my Project Life Album, so i made a cover title card for it. Each activity till have a card with it so it’s easy to spot throughout the album. I can’t wait!
This week’s five on friday is all about peonies. I have completely fallen in love with these flowers. Gotta plant me some for next spring! Thanks instagram!
This recipe is great for the summer. It’s nice and light. It’s pulled from Fine Cooking, April/May 2012 Edition. Enjoy!
Last week my husband took me away for a few nights so I didn’t make all the meals I had planned. So a few recipes made it into this week and I’m trying a few new recipes!
Monday – London Broil and Spicy Grilled Corn Salad
Tuesday – Grilled Pork and Fontina Sandwiches and Grilled Asparagus
Wednesday – Hoppin’ John
Thursday – Rib-Eye Steaks Rubbed with Coffee and Cocoa and Bacon Hasselback Potatoes
Fri-Sun – Going away for the weekend!
This spice rub, taken from the August/September 2011 edition of Fine Cooking, makes enough for 8 steaks. It also works well with pork and chicken. So good!
