Tuesday Favorites Top 3

Now, it is time to announce the favorites from this week's link-up party. First off, it appears that very few people are voting on the projects anymore, so I will be removing the voting option from now on. Voting will only happen on special occasions. Link-up parties will still be held every week though, so keep coming back!!!

The favorites from this week's link-up party (as picked by my hubby and me) are...

Gardening and Weekly Menu

There will be another PoP Design Team post on Thursday!!  I'm super excited to see what these super crafty ladies have made for you.  I know it will be great!

I hope you all had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend.  Mine was mostly spent in the flower garden with the hubby while the little one napped.  My hubby had the crazy idea of making a planter box too! Everything is so beautiful now as opposed to how ugly it was when we moved into the apartment. We also were able to go downtown for some festivities.  Aside from the heat, we really had fun just being together.  Here are a few pictures of all our hard work this past week.



The steps to make the planter box are:
1. Draw up your plans.
2. Purchase the wood and other materials.
3. Stain the wood (that way it looks better and is water resistant).
4. My hubby put the planter box together from the bottom up with large 3 inch deck screws.

Our Front Garden Area:
All that it needs now is mulch!!
We are really proud of all our hard work and can't wait for all our veggies to start growing!

Since I missed yesterday's menu, here it is.

Weekly Menu:

Monday: Burgers and fries
Tuesday: Chicken wraps
Wednesday: Hamburger Helper, veggie, and salad
Thursday: Fettuccine Alfredo and garlic bread
Friday: Beef stew and biscuits
Saturday: Steak, potatoes, veggie, and salad
Sunday: Soup and sandwiches

Favorites and Link-Up Party

Hello everyone!

I am so sorry that I haven't been able to post much this week. I have been swamped and have been trying to get back into a routine after returning from Texas (you can see some pictures from the trip here). My hubby and I have also been working on a planter box for our deck (well, my hubby has put in most of the work, but I have helped when I can). Yesterday, he stained all of the wood for it, which basically took 5 or 6 hours, and he has the sunburns on his arms to prove it!!!

Don't forget to link-up your recent creations at the bottom of this post.

Here are my hubby's and my Top 3 favorites from last week's link-up party:

Monday....Tuesday Menu

Hello Everyone!!  So I realized last night that I didn't get my Monday Menu up nor did I remind everyone to vote for their favorite link-up.  So I think that this week we won't do voting and me and the hubby will pick two to feature.  Then next Monday, when I'm back in the swing of thing, we'll get the voting up and running.  How's that sound?!

So, here is Monday, well, Tuesday's Menu

Monday: Breakfast for dinner
Tuesday: Hawaiian haystacks
Wednesday: Lemon and Herb chicken, potatoes, veggie, and salad
Thursday: Spaghetti and garlic bread
Friday: Burritos
Saturday: Burgers, fries, and salad
Sunday: BBQ chicken sandwiches

~Weekly Goals~
Clean the house, get caught up on  laundry, help hubby build planters box and toddler bed, and plant more flowers and veggie plants.

Trip to Texas

My family and I have been enjoying some time on vacation in Texas. It has been really wonderful to spend time with friends, and we also got to have a photo shoot with one of my friends, Kristen Duke. You can see some of the pictures from that shoot HERE. (Below is a teaser image from the shoot). I also thought I would share a few pictures that we have taken while on our trip. Nothing fancy, but it was nice to have a little break from the monotony of "my husband is in grad school" life.

Don't forget to link up in this week's link up party too!! Click Here.


And here are some images from our trip to Texas. We spent most of our time playing with the kids (thus, most of the pictures!).

Yep, my daughter refused to look at me for the photo, LOL.
And I just couldn't resist including at least one picture from this past Easter (even though it has nothing to do with Texas...)

Say Cheese Card and Link Up Party 5 - 19 - 2011

Hello Everyone!  Wow.  Where has the time gone??  I only have one full day left in Texas and can't believe the time is almost here to go home.  I do miss home, but I'm definitely going to miss our friends.  We're hoping we can get together like this at least once a year.

I also just realized that the day is half over and I haven't gotten today's Link-Up Party up.  Sorry about that.  Here is my link up for today.  I made this card to send as a Thank You card for the wonderful photographer, Kristen Duke, who took our family pictures while here in Texas. You can also see a few of our family picture HERE.



I can't wait to see all of your creations. Please link up no more than 2 posts and tell your friends to link up too. The more that link up, the more inspiration we have! Then, you can vote for your favorite project  Monday through Tuesday at noon (EST).

Please grab my Link-up button below and place it in your post that you linked up. This helps others to see it and come participate in the link-up party! Thanks!

Happy Apple Thank You Card

Good Day To You All.  I hope you all have had a great week!  I sure have!  The weather here is bright and sunny (I would know.  I already have a sunburn from yesterday at the park.) and we are enjoying as much time in it as we can.  It's been great being around friends you don't ever get to see.  

Before I start my day of fun in the sun, I thought I would post this super cute and easy card I made for you before I left for Texas.  I'll try and get the recipe up for it once I get home.  I forgot to bring all the details for it with me.  

Don't forget to join in the fun at our LINK-UP PARTY!  Click HERE to post your entries.
Hope you have a fabulous Saturday!!
