I've Been a Little Busy...

It's been a month and ten days since I last blogged (yikes!!). Every week I say to myself, this is the week I'm going to share a great new recipe! But alas, the best laid plans... Life is a tad busy for us right now (and by a tad busy, I mean the busiest it's ever been that I can remember) so please forgive me for my lack of blogging. I'm still cooking and baking whenever I can but I just can't seem to find the time to take photos or share the recipes with you online! :(

The main two things keeping us insanely busy right now, for those of you who don't know, are...

1) A new HOUSE that includes a KITCHEN RENOVATION!!! So, so exciting.


2) A BABY due to arrive in early November!! Also so, so exciting. :) 

Soooo, here's a small sampling of photos of what our life has been consumed with (in a good way!) for the past few months...


I can't believe how many decisions go into a kitchen renovation! It's been overwhelming at times but overall, it's pretty darn awesome! We are very thankful to have this opportunity to make the kitchen in our new home our own. I will most definitely be sharing a blog post later on with all the before and after pictures. It's a drastic transformation, let me tell you!! :)

And speaking of a gazillion decisions, my oh my do babies need a lot of items. :) Although creating a baby registry is also overwhelming, we've ultimately had a lot of fun with it and again, are so thankful to be in this amazing place in our lives! We are thrilled to meet our little one later this fall and are having a lot of fun getting ready for him or her (we didn't find out if it's a boy or girl!). If all goes as planned with the kitchen renovation and other changes/updates we're doing to the house, we should be moved in within a few weeks from now, which will give us about a month and a half before the baby arrives. Plenty of time to get settled, right? ;)

Can't wait to share more with you about the house, kitchen, and baby in the upcoming months!

But in the meantime, since this is a food blog after all, here are links to a couple recipes I've made lately that have been incredibly delicious. You've gotta try 'em!

This drink was so easy and ridiculously refreshing. Aaand pretty awesome for me since I can't drink alcohol right now. ;) We still have a few more weeks of summer so make sure to try this while the weather is still warm!

These are amazing. That's all you need to know. Try them!!!
