Monday Miscellany

Good morning! 

My word – what a weekend. A total blur of flitting hither and thither, cleaning, doing laundry…well, you get it. I’m sure we all do!

This is going to be a HUGE week…
I am heading to Blissdom! 
I cannot say enough how ecstatic (and admittedly nervous) I am at the thought of being in the company of so many talented bloggers. What a fun ride this will be!

Menu planning this week was all about preparing things that will make it as easy as possible for Mr. Splendid while I’m away at the end of the week. There is no better meal in my arsenal for that than my Lasagna. (Plus, the story behind that recipe, which is actually from my Love Story + Food series, is very near to my heart.) The time investment up front is well worth it, since one pan of lasagna will feed our family of five for three meals, and then a couple of lunch portions, too. Talk about economical!

In other news…I happily made it on to the next round in SYTYC! Did you guess which project was mine last week? My contribution was the Portable Mani/Pedi Kit. Stay tuned for a tutorial later this week!

In other SYTYC news…voting is now on for this week’s Upcycled challenge. There are some terrific contributions this week! I hope you’ll head over to pick your favorite.

    Oh, Amy! Color me jealous! At least you don’t have to travel far to get to Blissdom. 🙂 Congrats on SYTYC. Off to vote!

    I’m 100% on “guess Amy’s project”! Yay!!! I love this little project. And I really NEED one! My mani/pedi stuff is in a Caboodle from 1992. Seriously. Kinda time to move on.

    And I’m not IGNORING the fact that you’re heading out to Blissdom. Just trying to breathe deeply through my jealousy. (although, I don’t know if I’d be able to handle my nervousness. Whew!) You’re gonna be great! Because you ARE great! The best!

    Have so much fun. Think of me, fondly when you’re super famous! 🙂

    Enjoyed meeting you at the Viral Marketing session today. Funny running into another Little Rock blogger! I checked out some of your blog, and it is so cool. Your kids are precious. Hope to keep in touch! 🙂
