What a weekend! Our Seahawks are going to the Superbowl again!! Such a fun weekend up in Seattle, watching the game and hanging with friends. Along with that, lots of yummy football food and drink. Which means we needed something a little lighter for dinner tonight.
We moved into this house and one of the things I loved most was the huge open area off the kitchen where I could create a dining room complete with a farm table for entertaining. The only problem, and something I didn’t want to tackle, there was no overhead electrical in the room! Yes, I will add lamps to the room to brighten it up but you can’t have a gorgeous farm table with no rustic overhead light fixture!! It just felt weird.
By now you know that I don’t love veggies, but, they are very necessary for a healthy diet. When you only eat a handful of different vegetables, eating them can get old real fast. I needed to try some new side dishes to keep simple weeknight dinners interesting. Cue the bacon! I know, I know, it takes away a bit of the healthy edge. Let’s be honest though, getting my husband to eat brussels sprouts…I had to bring out the big guns.
To kick off the new year, and in the spirit of #flashbackfriday, I’m revisiting the top posts from 2014. I’m amazed at how far this blog has come in just 6 short months. I was a bit reluctant to start this project at first, thinking it would be more work than I had time for. Don’t get me wrong, it is a lot of work, but it has become my hobby and what I love to do in any spare moments between my real job and daily life. I love sharing my journey of being a first-time home owner, DIYing herself through a home remodel with all of you and your support means the world to me. Thank you to all of you for paying attention to what I have to say, this blog wouldn’t mean nearly as much without you.
