And then I look back and realize that this blog is a memory keeper. I peer back at the posts and go "oh, goodness...I almost forgot about that!"
I love how this little blog holds so many memories, thoughts, ideas, projects, and moments...
Over the next few days, I've got a few "looking back" posts. I like to look back on this past year before I jump too fast into the next one :)
Today, I'm sharing my favorite projects and recipes of 2012.
Let's start with the recipes:
Holy Moley Quesadillas: I had forgotten about this recipe, but I fully intend to whip it out again soon! So delish :)
3 Simple Quinoalicious Lunches: Even though I'm pregnant, I still need to mind what I eat (probably even more so!). All of these recipes are fast, healthy, and yummy!
Overnight Oatmeal: If you like a filling breakfast, these are so easy to make ahead of time. Plus, they are easy to experiment with!
Hearty with Barley Freezable Burritos: I'll definitely be making these again in the new year. I love having healthy and accessible food on the quick :)
Slow Cooker Apple Pumpkin Butter: This recipe is so simple and delicious. Definitely more of a fall food, but I still adore this spread :)
Now onto the projects:
DIY Dryer Balls: These are definitely a Pinterest hit, and they are a hit in our home. I've got a bunch in my dryer right now!
Sea Salt and Sugar Body Scrub: Need to refresh your skin during the winter? I would definitely try some homemade sugar/salt scrubs. I love, love, love them!
Our Kitchen Work Table: When we moved into our new home this summer, we lacked a place to eat/work in our 50's kitchen. Josh made us this table, and I couldn't be happier with it.
DIY Painted Sign: This was a gift for my mom for mother's day, but you could use the techniques to make your own painted sign. So many possibilities!
DIY Chalk Paint + My Desk: I am currently sitting at this very desk and I still adore it. Plus, the chalk paint is holding up well :) I love how a coat of paint gives something new life!
It was hard to narrow down some of my favorites, but these are definitely some of my top projects + recipes!
I'd love for you to share your favorite projects and/or recipes with me! Just leave me a link below :)
