Homemade Mayonnaise

For the past three trips to the grocery store, I have forgotten to put mayonnaise on my list. It's not that I use it all that often - it's just that it's one of those things I like to always have.
Need to make a small batch of ranch-style dressing? No problem. Devilled Eggs? No problem!

100 Buzz!

I was thinking about my blog last night, and came to the conclusion that without you, my readers, I wouldn't be all that motivated to write as often. Sure, I go through dry spells - we all do - but on a whole, you keep me going! Thank you for that! I really appreciate all the comments I get and input from readers... some of whom I know, and many I do not! I love you guys!

I know that several of you follow my blog here via Google Reader or Bloglovin - but man! My Facebook page is lonely... so I have a little "game" to play. I will BUZZ my hair off if we reach 100 fans on my Facebook page before the end of November.

Not Lucky but Winning Anyway

I'll be honest with you here - I am not a lucky person.

Blame it on all the years of walking under ladders, opening umbrellas indoors, breaking mirrors, and being a magnet for black cats. My best childhood friend's dog Pixie ate my blue rabbit's foot when we were kids. Then there was the gigantic amount of salt I recently spilled in the kitchen when I dropped a glass jar full of it onto the tile floor.

Monday Randomness

I have a few things to blog about, but as I was thinking about it - it's just a bunch of little things not worthy (in my opinion) of an entire blog post to themselves... so I present to you, a random babbling post.

- I love/hate waiting for things to come in the post. I ordered a few things recently from Amazon for an upcoming soapmaking adventure. Not all my bits and bobs were shipped together, so I'm stuck waiting for a bunch of different packages to come at varying times.

- I am listening to Yo-yo Ma's most recent collaborative album entitled The Goat Rodeo Sessions. As you may have guessed, it's instrumental and along the same lines as a previous collaboration entitled Appalachian Waltz and I'm loving it.

- I drop my new iPhone far more than I care to admit. I am seriously considering investing in a military grade case for it... after all, we do have tile floors, and I'm sure that this phone will only be able to take so much.

- Apps are my new favorite thing.

- I missed an appointment I had today by about half an hour. I didn't know what hours they were open - so it wasn't really an "appointment" per se - but the place I needed to go to is only open for three hours ONCE a week. Blah.

- Other than my missed appointment, I feel like I've really gotten a lot done today! I did all the dishes (there were a lot because we had a guest over for dinner) and some laundry, plus I went and ran some errands in town.

- I got a new outfit for my husband in the second hand shop! A brand new Polo shirt and a very nice pair of jeans for less than five bucks. I win.

- I failed at dinner last night. I wanted to make my own recipe of potato patties - but completely spaced out about the potatoes and boiled them into oblivion. Instead of just scrapping it, I thought I could save them - and it ended up just being a gloppy, gooey mess.

- Our tile floors are surprisingly freaking cold. All the time. I always have to wear slippers and/or socks around the house. Brr!!

- Under the hardwood floors (upstairs) there are often little warm spots where I imagine an invisible cat has just been sleeping. At first I suspected that our real-life cat had been laying in these places, but he obviously can't be more than one place at one time and there are usually about 5 spots at a time.

- I love having a yard. I can't wait until we're someplace more settled and I can do some of the fun things I see all the time on Pinterest.

- The leftover Chinese Takeout in the fridge (after my dinner failure) is calling my name. Time for lunch!

Back on Track!

I have a confession to make. I fell off the wagon. 

But only for two weeks, and! I didn't gain any weight back. Even though I wasn't watching my calories and exercising, I managed not to overeat and put back on those 6 pounds I had lost. I'm quite proud of that. 

As of yesterday though, I am back on the weight-loss track and more focused than ever thanks to three things. My husband, my dad, and MyFitnessPal.

Great is His Faithfulness - Freebie Friday

Hello friends! Welcome to another Freebie Friday. 

This week for me has been full of blessings and wonderful things. Sure, there have been rough patches because hey! It's life! But overall, I feel like God really has had His hand on my shoulder and maybe has been paying a little extra attention to this child of His lately.
That is why I made this!

Of course, during the good times (like this week, for me) it's easy to forget - because things are going well. I made this to print out and hang somewhere every day where I'll see it and remember that He is there with me on my bad days too. Ever faithful to me in my times of need and ever faithful to you too!

To download this free printable and to see others that are available to print, visit the "Freebie Fridays" tab at the top of the page, or click here.
