The number of blogs I subscribe to just keeps growing and growing, and as a result, the great posts I read and bookmark to share with you or to look at again later also continues to grow!  Here’s some of the good stuff from the last 2 weeks:

Asiago Bagels from Brown Eyed Baker: Bagels is on my list of things to try making myself, and Asiago Bagels are my FAVORITE kind to order at the bagel place.

A post from Create Beauty Daily on struggling with infertility and miscarriage.  I particularly liked the list of at the end, with some Do’s and Don’ts on what to say to people who are struggling. (Thanks to Metropolitan Mama for the link!)

I didn’t get to have any Funnel Cake when we went to the Livestock Show & Rodeo this week, and I’ve been craving one ever since.  Maybe I could try making my own Funnel Cake at home, just like The Pioneer Woman!

Cutting Down On Waste in the Kitchen: Tossing the Paper, from Keeper of the Home: We’re still working on cutting back on our paper towel usage.

YouLookFab has a great list of 20 Must Haves for Spring and Summer 2010.  I’ve got about 13 of the items on this list, which I guess is a pretty good start.  I had a nice little pick-me-up shopping spree yesterday for some new spring and summer clothes.

The Two Year Old: A Traditional Perspective and the follow up post How Do I Live Peacefully With My Two Year Old from a new to me blog, The Parenting Passageway

the good life for less has a Spring 2010 Looks Book full of affordable pieces (and how to wear them) to update your wardrobe for spring.  She’s got great style, and I always love to see the outfits from the wardrobe consultations.

I found Heavenly Homemaker’s post on what they did to help their son’s eczema without drugs fascinating since The Littlest Apple has had eczema since birth (though much improved now).

Our mantel has been in need of a makeover essentially since we moved in.  I never quite mastered the art of decorating a mantel.  Layla from The Lettered Cottage HAS!  She’s got  a beautiful Spring Mantel that I just might have to copy!

I’m hoping to try these Salad Spinner Spring Flowers from Confessions of a Homeschooler sometime this week.  The Littlest Apple LOVES to play with our salad spinner!

These Granola Cookies with Coconut, Almonds and Chocolate from Dandy Sugar WILL be making an appearance at my house this week.  Yum!

  2. That post by Create Beauty Daily was beautiful, wasn’t it? She said everything so eloquently, so authentically. I appreciate her candor immensely.

    I found that article on eczema interseting too! We also tried the allergy treatment NAET and it completely got rid of my sons chronic eczema.. my other son had such bad ear infections and was going to get tubes, I got him treated ( he ened up being allergic to milk) and he hasn’t had another infection since! ( and he can still drink milk!) I don’t get how it works.. but it does! LOL
