Mark Your Calendars!

Hey, ladies!  Not sure about you, but I'm a planner.  I like to open my calendar for the week and see a "plan" laid out.  #nerdstatus

I've had some blog ideas rolling around in my head and decided to bite the bullet and get them down on paper (well, virtual paper) and hope that y'all like getting out your fancy pens and marking dates in your planner as much as I do :)

I'm OBSESSED with getting little peeks into people's homes.  I love seeing people's decor, getting ideas and getting a little insight into their lives through their house.  So, mark your calendars to link up with me and share your homes!  The first one is April 15th when we'll share Family Rooms.  This gives you plenty of time to find a new throw pillow and run your vacuum before we come over :)

I am a big fan of prompt writing.  I know, that sounds weird.  I have plenty of my own ideas, but often like to be challenged to write to a specific prompt.  I think this is why I like the Instagram Challenge Erika and I are doing so much.  I'm pushed a bit to think outside of the box and take pictures that I might not otherwise.  SO.......... I thought I'd extend the same idea to blogging as well and start a "What's On" Link-Up where we can share about what we watch on TV, what we read, what we're doing with our families and what we're wearing!
LAST - this one I'm really excited about.  I'm always looking for great new recipes to try.  And most of the time I turn to Mix and Match Mama because I know she's not going to steer me wrong :) , but I thought it would be fun to open it up to y'all!  We can share our favorite recipe(s) and then look at everyone's and get some new meal ideas.
 Okay - so I hope you're not overwhelmed or thinking I'm too crazy.  Pencil in the dates and get ready to link up and share!  I can't wait to try some new recipes, get some decorating ideas and find out what everyone's watching :)

Last... because it wouldn't be a post without a Griffin pic (and she kind of matches my recipe club graphic!)....


Girlfriend is ALL OVER the house with this little stroller.  She walks on her tippy toes and I pretty much squeal about how cute she is the entire time.  It's the best thing ever.

Happy Monday!!!
