I Just Blogged to Say I Love You (Vol. 12)

I Just Blogged to Say I Love You (Vol. 12) ... a random assortment of good stuff. ;)

1. Spring!  Are you ready?!?  I am.  Even though every outdoor surface is covered in yellow pollen, it's nice to be in the garden again.  (I use the term "garden" loosely.  It's where I go to kill things.)  Anyway...I found flowering quince at the nursery and a sweet employee there told me that it "thrives on neglect."  Woo Hoo!  Perfect! 

2. Saturday, I made these for lunch.  You should make them, too.  Like, now.

3. This kitchen.  That red oven.  This is what my dreams are made of. 

4. I may be ready for spring, but not necessarily the humidity.  I picked this up and Ulta last week...because Ulta is impulse-buy-headquarters...and I actually really like it.  I use it under my other styling products.  I'll report back when the humidity is back up to 98%.

5. These.  Just give me that whole tray.

6. Spinach, artichoke, parmesan?  Hello, marriage made in heaven.

7. Um, I can't stop thinking about this icebox cake.

8. Have you heard?  In June, KitchenAid is coming out with CERAMIC BOWLS for their mixers.  I think I need one...or seven.

9. Salted caramel blondies.  I am SO making these.

10. Kiddo started an Etsy shop.  He's crafting these lamp finials out of bullets.  Don't worry...they don't shoot when you turn on your lamp; there's no gunpowder inside.  They're perfect for a hunting lodge, office, man cave, etc. (but maybe not that kitchen I linked up above.) ;)  I hope you don't mind me giving him a little shout-out here.  I'm proud of him for stepping out and trying a little business venture all on his own.

11. I leave you with this thought.

Have a wonderful week!  Watch out for the pollen! 



  1. I faved his shop. Go, kiddo, go!

  2. Bridget,
    My allergies are telling me that spring is coming but I'm still waiting for the snow in the back of the house (northeasterly exposure) to melt. There's still a large patch on the patio that's about 4 or 5 inches. The piles will probably be around for another couple or three weeks. They're predicting 1 to 3 inches of snow tomorrow but I'm hoping it misses like the last two storms.
    I did buy a red raspberry and blackberry bush to plant but I have to wait until the ground warms up enough to plant them. Have a great week and Happy Spring.

  3. Yay spring! Love those KitchenAid ceramic bowls :)

  4. How fun that kiddo has an Etsy shop! Love the name of his store, too! Very fun. Hope he does some bang-up business :)
    Thanks for including my Spinach and Artichoke Squares in your collection. I am honored!

  5. Fun post! I love those bowls and I have been eyeing Michelle's blondies too!

  6. I want that red oven too. Do you think they have two of them? Love this post…I'm ready for spring too!

  7. You belong in that kitchen! The ETSY shop is awesome! Way to go kiddo!
