Some of My Favorite Blogs!

Wow, sorry for being absent for so long! I haven't been feeling 100% so I have been taking it easy in the crafting and cooking department.

I am currently trying to figure out my sewing machine. I have got it threaded and now just need to figure out the rest! HAHA, wish me luck there!

I'm back today with some of my favorite blogs to read and follow. These blogs really inspired me to share my own ideas and story.

The Brown-Eyed Baker
Wow, this girl can cook! She has a new recipe about every day and they all look delicious. She also shares pictures of her two golden retrievers and son, Joseph.

Her recipes range from rich chocolate cakes to homemade casseroles! You just never know what she will be posting!

Cookies and Cups
I love this blog. She has expanded this year and started incorporating savory dishes in her blog. However, she founded her blog on her love of buttercream. 

Shelly has an upcoming cookbook that is coming out and it looks awesome! If you like sweet treats, she is a wealth of knowledge!

I also love her because I won last years Creative Cookie Competition with my Hogwarts Worthy Butterbeer Cookies, you can see my post here or Shelly's try at my recipe here!

Confessions of a Cookbook Queen
Kristan is another blogger that I love to read. She loves dessert and posts the yummiest (is that a proper word?) looking food. I have tried several of her recipes and loved them.

She also has book, clothing, and make-up recommendation posts. I just love her funny, witty personality! She is a mom who keeps it real. 


She also helped throw the Creative Cookie Competition last year and she recreated my recipe here!

Sally's Baking Addiction
This blog is full of all kinds of recipes. Sally gives expert instructions behind all her recipes along with the science behind things! She's currently on a book tour for her new cookbook.

Sawdust & Embryos
This is a DIY blog. I find Beth and her husband, Nick, hilarious and ambitious. They created their blog to help earn income with they were struggling with infertility and trying to find ways to raise extra income for treatments. They can build something out of nothing, which I am extremely jealous over!

I follow all these blogs on a regular basis and love to read about what they are coming up with next. I wish I could have a tenth of creative juices that they all spit out! (kind of a gross analogy, sorry!)

Hopefully, I can build my blog to represent a little of what each of these ladies do, but I am happy just sharing my love of baking, crafting, and living life!

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…
