It's Monday...Let's Catch Up!

Monday is back again. I just feel like it always knows how to sneak up on us! Friday doesn't ever decide it wants to sneak up. It takes it's merrily good time to get here.

We have had a busy week. School is back in session and golf season has started. It's a really busy 6 weeks for the Hubby. We are busy every Saturday until the end of September with golf!

We have lived in our house about 4 years. My sister had been living with us for the past year as she went to school. She recently moved into her own apartment and I decided it was time to paint and redecorate the guest room since we never did anything to it since we moved in. 



This is a before picture. I am still waiting on a couple things in order to post my after pictures!

I haven't been posting very many recipes lately because I have been on a diet. Talk about bummer. I really want to be baking all kinds of stuff, but brownies and low carb do not really go together.



I have been doing the diet since the middle of July. I can tell a little bit of difference in my cheeks, but hopefully I'll start to see more and more.

I have been working on a menu for my college roommate's bridal shower. I am in charge of desserts. 

Here is a dessert menu I created. (ps. this is NOT LOW CARB). It'll be all I can do just to test these out and not devour them!




The cat's have been really busy too. Why buy toys or expensive pet beds when you can play with a golf tee or sleep in a Scene It? box???



Until next time,

Kara

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!



Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Kara

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
