365 Days of Being THANKFUL - DAY#155

by AngieOuelletteTower for photo Thankful_zpsd6bc7c2d.jpg
A few months ago I decided that I would start a new series on this blog called: "365 Days of Being THANKFUL".  The more I thought about it the more I felt led by God but then at the same time I started wondering if I would be able to do this for a whole year!  One month of being thankful is measurable let alone hundreds of days!
So, I am now 1/3 of the way through my challenge - I must be able to find something each day that I am thankful for since I am so blessed.

One Easy Way to Gain Instagram Followers
Ash and Crafts

Hello there! Today will be my last post on my How to Start a Blog series. Please click here to start at the beginning of the series if you haven’t read it yet! Today’s post will be focusing on Instagram. I’ve read a lot of posts on how to boost your Instagram. The most common tips I’ve seen are:

Pillow Cases, Just the Way You Like Them!
Stone Cottage Adventures

My latest sewing addiction is Pillow Cases!  They are a quick, easy project.  I *love* creating them just the way I like them!  The possibilities are absolutely endless!

Lasagna Mac and Cheese

I am betting that you are a BIG fan of Macaroni and Cheese. I mean isn’t everyone?! I am pretty sure that’s one of the foods you first ate as a toddler and then fell in love with it for the rest of your life. Homemade is always better than a box, but we still have a soft spot for the original in the blue box.

The Absolute, Best Thing About Blogging!
Earning and Saving with Sarah Fuller

What is the absolute, best thing about blogging? Nope, it is not the countless hours spent putting together posts and scheduling social media contributions. It is not the continuous need to learn new things. It is not even when a post goes viral or is picked up by a big media outlet (Although, this is much more in the ballpark).

Garbage Disposal Tablets
Almost Supermom
Last week I came home from a long day of field tripping with the kids to an incredibly funky smell in my kitchen. Like really funky. The nose went to work trying to find the source of the funk. In no time at all I found out the smell was coming from my garbage disposal. Yuck! One of my kids had left some food in there and it had just been sitting there stinking up my house for who knows how long. This wasn’t the first time this had happened, my teens are the primary dish doers in my house and while they do a pretty good job most of the time, there are days when they just forget that they need to run the garbage disposal.

Review: Valentia Organic Rosehip Oil
Skin Stuff by Katy

Hey guys! Today I'm going to be reviewing Valentia's Organic Rosehip Oil. I think I've said before, but I've been on an oil kick lately with my skin. Plus, it's fun trying out new things!

How I more than tripled my pageviews in just two months
My Love for Words

Have you ever thought about starting a blog? Do you currently blog but struggle with balancing it all? Most of us know all too well how overwhelming it can feel to juggle the day-to-day demands of writing a blog with the big-picture strategy of creating a profitable business.

Spring Brunch Menu
Willamette Valley Wonder Woman

This past Sunday we accomplished something we had yet to do this year – enjoy a brunch on the back deck.  Get ready for a photo overload here because we lucked out and had a gorgeous morning with lots fresh food and colorful flowers


Nothing beats homemade bread, fresh or fluffy from your own kitchen. Get your kids involved for lots of kitchen fun especially for this recipe, make them rolling and coating the dough with sugar, a great way to introduce them into baking.

Food Art

I’ve an adorable collection of food art for you! These wonderful work of art are created from simple food items that we consume on a daily basis. I don’t think most of us pause to admire what we eat unless it is brilliantly presented to us. Fruits and vegetables come in several hues, and subtle patterns. With imagination, creativity, and patience you could create pirates, bunnies, bears, caterpillars, and more.

Typically Simple

I have such a love/hate relationship with spring cleaning. I love getting the house spic and span, deep cleaning, and getting rid of winter clutter…but I also hate cleaning (just ask my mom or husband) especially when the weather is warm and I would rather be outside.
