From my earlier post about Inspiration and Greener Grass, thanks for the very genuine comments and sharing who inspires you, and why.

Also, it was interesting to read if you’re a person who tends to think the grass is greener, or not.

Lots of wonderful feedback on that post and thank you for being so honest in the comments.


1. Have you made anything this week or seen anything that really caught your eye!

I think my White Chocolate Chip Blondies with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting were the best thing I made all week.

But as usual, there are so many great recipes out there!  I could spend days in my kitchen cooking! 

2. Weekend Plans?  Any plans for Mother’s Day?

I don’t know if Scott realizes it’s Mother’s Day weekend.  We shall see.

So far, no plans other than the usual: working, working out, cooking, cleaning, blogging, and being with Skylar.

Mother’s Day plans thus far are nonexistent, but that’s ok.  I’d rather keep things loose, low key, and open-ended.  For me, one way to “ruin” a holiday is to over-plan and over-schedule it, and not factor in downtime and chilltime.

I have so much to do anyway this weekend because we are leaving for our trip soon!

P.S. Last Reminder to enter the Granola GiveawayWinner announced in the morning.

  1. Man, those are some good lookin’ recipes from around the ‘sphere! I love that latte action shot! And I’m also loving your italics on “we shall see” regarding Scott’s awareness of mom’s day! ;)

  2. Thanks for the link love, I’m glad you enjoyed the post!! I’d definitely say those bars are the best thing you made all week, too…every single component is amazing by itself, so all together? Amazing.

    This weekend I’ll be finishing up schoolwork and getting ready to go home for a few weeks!! YAY!

  3. Looking forward to a weekend of relaxation! Nothing much other than that. Also I’m going to be trying some new recipes tomorrow, although I haven’t fully decided what they will be. But I know they will be based on things I’ve seen in the blogosphere!

    I’m mostly looking forward to next weekend!! My birthday is Thursday and I want to get out of town. Don’t know the destination yet, but it should be fun.
