Weekend Wandering


Happy Weekend!  My youngest daughter turns 6 on Monday which has me in a bit of shock–can my baby really be that old already?  Happily for us, she is good with having a low-key day–her only requests were to play with Legos and have a cake that she can stick her whole face into.  I think I can handle that!  What are your plans for the holiday weekend?

Here is what I loved this week:

First of all, this recipe for the Best Ever Homemade Pizza dough from The Orthodox Mama sounds really good!  Pizza on the grill in the summer is my favorite!


This Crab Roll Slider Recipe from Cooking in Bliss sounds like the perfect summertime meal!


This Rainbow Salad in a Jar from What Mommy Does is almost too pretty to eat!


This Roasted Portobella Mushroom Sandwich from To Simply Inspire sounds like the perfect alternative to burgers!


These Banana Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Frosting from This Silly Girl’s Life sound absolutely amazing!  We’ve got a ton of bananas in the freezer from our banana tree (that’s Florida life for you!) so I am always looking for ways to use them!


This Key Lime Pie Dip from Life With the Crust Cut Off  requires only 2 ingredients! That is my kind of recipe!


These Red White & Blue Jell-O Cups from Raining Hot Coupons would be fun to make!


Mmm…this Strawberries and Cream Shake from Simplee Thrifty sounds so delicious!


Savvy Saving Couple shared their recipe for Delicious Starbucks Coffee Bean Chocolate Bark. Coffee & chocolate? Yes please!!


Onto some super cute projects…..This DIY Wooden Doormat from H2O Bungalow is pretty and functional!


This Pottery Barn Flag Hack from The Honeycomb Home would be perfect for both Memorial Day and the Fourth of July!


Living Chic on the Cheap shares her tips to making your own “I Spy” Bottles. I love this idea!


This free Printable Vacation Packing List from Freebie Finding Mom is a must have if your planning a family vacation this summer!


These Budgeting Basics from Loving Littles can help you start a budget and keep to it!


Feeling overwhelmed by debt? A Mitten Full of Savings shares 4 Ways We Conquered Debt! Number 3 is key!


Finally, My Stay at Home Adventures shares Last Minute Frugal Ideas for Memorial Day Weekend!

    Happy birthday to your daughter!
    I’m on a Dollar Store kick right now, so I really liked the Dollar Store Beauty Buys from Krystal’s Kitsch. I had no idea they sold Elf at Dollar Tree. Also, anything salted caramel has my vote, so the Salted Caramel Cheesecake bars from Annie’s Noms looked amazing!

  6. Thank you for including my post, Last Minute Frugal Ideas for Memorial Day Weekend. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Thanks again.
