4/16: Boston Marathon is Today

Running 26.2 miles, WHHHHAAATTTT!  I never knew a thing about marathoning until my husband decided to tackle one for the first time this year.  The amount of dedication and prep it takes to compete in a marathon blew my mind and each competitor deserves some big cheers.

One thing I loved as a spectator was the crowds cheering everyone on.  For my next marathon cheering session I am packing a cowbell, cough drops to help my throat with all the screaming and making some hilarious signs to keep those runners going!

Checkout this link to 50 of the funniest marathon support ideas out there and remember whether it’s the first place finisher or the person bringing up the rear, I think we can all agree that 26.2 miles on foot is beyond impressive so go out and get your cheer on!


4/12: National Grilled Cheese Day

Grilled cheese really does make everything magical!  This is my favorite go to treat and there are so many ways to dress up a plain old grilled cheese.  My favorite trick is using a light slather of mayo on the outside instead of butter, when you toast it in the pan it gets super toasty and crisp!

3/28 Wine Crush Wednesday: Don’t forget that wine!

I LOVE getting wine as a gift, I know that’s not a shocker, but it’s always nice to remember where that wine came from.  Recently I started labeling wine gifted to me with a short note so I can remember who gave me that special bottle and when.  I just picked up some cute sticky labels from The Dollar Tree and jot the name of the person that gave me the wine and a quick note to the occasion or reason I received it.

It has been so nice to pick a bottle and not just enjoy the wine, but really enjoy the memory behind that bottle of wine!
